Legion- A Hot Blasphemous Mess (Spoiler Alert)
Ok, so after hearing all of the back and forth about the movie Legion, I decided to go check it out for myself over the weekend. Needless to say I should have stayed home.
First of all, this movie was so blatantly bass-akwards that it wasn't even funny. The premise of the movie is that God gets so fed up with mankind that He sends the archangel Michael, the general of his angelic army, to lead the apocalypse and kill the unborn child of an unwed mother; a child who is supposed to be the last hope for mankind.
Michael decides that he loves mankind way too much to allow God to destroy it, so he decides to defy God and come to Earth in effort to stop the destruction that God has already set into motion. So he denounces his place in Heave by cutting off his wings and taking on the form of a man.
That brief summary in and of itself is laughable- as if anyone, angels included, could stop anything that God set in his mind to do!
The movie then goes on to depict angels, not fallen-angels but God's angel, possessing the bodies of humans in effort to try to murder this unborn child and the people protecting it. Since when do God's angel possess humans? That is a trait of demons!
Then when all of that fails, Gabriel then comes forth to carry out God's orders because Michael refused to do so. They argue for a minute, and the long and short of the argument is that Michael accuses Gabriel of blindly following God's orders without question, while he (Michael) is giving Him what He needs instead of what He wants. Are you kidding? Straight up? An angel knows what God NEEDS?!!!
Then they proceed to battle it out, and Gabriel defeats Michael and then continues on to finish God's mission. After a drawn out chase and battle, right when you think Gabriel is about to complete his mission, Michael comes back, from Heaven no less, with his wings in tact because basically God realized that Michael was right and He was wrong. Gabriel then flies off in defeat because he feels slighted about being made to look like a fool for following God's orders. WHAT THE HELL! That's just what it is, a lie from the pit of Hell!
Where do I begin? I was so utterly angry at this movie when I left the theater that I wanted to call the director personally and tell him to slap himself repeatedly for having the audacity to twist and blatantly disrespect the Word of God that way!
It is my opinion that the church should be in an uproar about this movie. Seriously. Do you think for one second that if the Qu'ran was as grossly misrepresented in this manner that the Muslims would stand idly by and allow it? I honestly don't think so.
To even insinuate that God, Jehovah the Creator of the Universe, would need to be shown the error of His ways by anyone is utterly disgusting. How dare they. And everyone who calls themselves a Christian that had anything to do with the production should fall on their knees and ask for forgiveness. Not even the occult movies that are out have disrespected God or the Bible in that manner.
And the worst thing about it is that many people who do not know the Word will be misled by this this film! Don't get it twisted brothers and sisters, God is NOT mocked! Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to salvation. No if's, and's or but's about it. So if you don't got Him you'd better get Him! John 3:16.
I'm sure you can tell, I'm a little upset but I don't like it when people disrespect my God. And if you know like I know, then you shouldn't like it either.
Be blessed and keep praying for me and each other. I'll be praying for you.
