    Except that Superman wasn't sent to "save the Earth." His planet was about to be distroyed--his parents sent him to Earth to save him. His Earthly mother was originally named Mary but his father was originally not named, and the names of his Earthly parents varied over the years. They are most commonly named Martha and Jonathan.

    This thread is about that new Superman movie; "Man Of Steel" I haven't seen it but they say it has made millions already. Prior to the release, a private viewing for clergy took place. Thus, we have conversation of Superman v. Jesus in morals and in saving the world. Where Superman is given over to the enemy to save the world to die for it's sins, he was a natural born Kryton where others where hatched some how, etc.

    I find it odd that clergy would use Superman to discuss Jesus, but I guess that is just me.

    that's true, it being current affairs and the movie was released a few days ago I thought it was a given.

    Superman is a MYTH. It's a FICTION story.

    Jesus Christ is real and alive.

    The movie itself is basically a promotion for the Anithchrist. The over-the-top comparisons in the movie with The Lord Jesus Christ are blasphemy. But that has not stopped thousands of pastors across the country from preaching pre-written "Man of Steel" sermons and forcing this nonsense on their unwitting congregations.

    For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty. - 2 Peter 1:16.

    I can see the similarities. Both use super powers to fight crime and save the world.

    The only differences I see is that Superman doesn't condemn anyone to hell, Superman isn't prejudiced in only saving one set of people first before others, Superman respects the rights of all citizens whereas the church who is the voice of Jesus does otherwise.

    The reason I point out the differences is that Christians explained it to me those things I listed, so it must be the opinion of all Christians. Jesus came to save the Jews, then when they refused Jesus, then the Gentiles were the secondary group to be saved.
    Also, I'm told that homosexuals are not to be married according to the church. And also, Jesus sends those to hell who refuse to follow him.
