Good analogy to get us started. :sunglasses:

“Are we Avengers who with technology must defeat death and all that comes with it along the way, or are we as humans charging our way into a conversation which is just a little bit above our pay grade? For Christians, this feels like a very difficult one.”

Andy Moore tackles this with three key points

  1. View of the future:
    Faith in human possibility or promises of God
    What mankind can do vs. what mankind is for

  2. View of humanity’s problem
    Material or moral
    Concentrate on entering God’s kingdom, not recreating kingdom 2.0

  3. View of what happened at the Cross
    Tragedy or triumph
    Hope is not found in mankind becoming God, but in God becoming man

Christ addressed our biggest problem through His death, and in His resurrection He has secured for us the possibility of fulfillment, health, joy, and life everlasting.

Who’s your money on, Tony Stark or Jesus?

Beautiful music reference, In Christ Alone

There in the ground his body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then, bursting forth in glorious day
Up from the grave He arose

And as he stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost it’s grip on me
For I am His, and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ
