Zombies and Superheroes
Zombies and vampires and werewolves... Oh My!
Ah those imortal monsters, painted through out time as both gruesome and charming... ok well maybe the zombies are just gruesome. My brother turned twenty-one last Sunday and threw the most awesome zombie birthday bash ever. His guests did an awesome job arriving as either zombies or survivors. A few even turned zombie through out the night. I have to admit I had a blast creating blood splattered props and dressing up as a zombie myself.
I can still remember the first time I saw "Interview with a Vampire," my introduction to vampires that sparked a fascination with the idea of such an immortal being. Although these immortal beings are not a new phenomenon they're currently a hot topic. If you take a stroll down the young adults book isle at Target you'll notice a current trend leaning towards the phenomenal, the genre of vampires (especially), zombies and werewolves tip the scale.
Then there are Superheroes. Some are given supernatural abilities by fate and others are the wealthy elite with mega sweet gadgets and gizmos to aid them in their battle against crime, villainous villains, and arch nemesis.
Whether immortals or heroes we've long been fascinated with eternal life and super human abilities. Hmmm, I wonder why? Could it be because there is such a thing as eternal life and beings with abilities beyond those of us mere mortals?
Weren't we after all created to have an intimate and eternal relationship with our creator?
On the way home today Abandon's "Hero" was playing on the radio.
The Chorus goes like this:
There He goes - a hero
A Savior to the world
Here He stands with scars in His hands
With love He gave His life
so we could be free
The Savior of the world

Jesus is the ultimate Superhero who died on the cross and offers us life eternal with Him in paradise.
God's blessings on your week!
