The Movie Avatar

Have you seen Avatar? What struck me the most about Avatar were two connections I perceived with the book of Revelation: (1) a fantasia story told with incredibly astonishing images, but (2) really a story of our own society’s present predicament of conflicted loyalties and demoralizing, dehumanizing values that make us less human than humanoids and less moral than a species not even from this planet. Like the director James Cameron, I think John purposefully projected a fantasia story onto the mind’s eye in order to dramatize for believers the predicament of conflicted loyalties in the imperial setting of late first-century Asia Minor.
