Star Wars and the Ancient Religion
Peter Jones of Truthxchange examines the pagan worldview entrenched in Star Wars. George Lucas, the creator of the Star Wars saga, wanted to “produce a children’s fairy tale set in outer space as a ‘teaching tool’ for the re-creation of ‘the classic cosmic mysteries,’” says Jones. Lucas succeeded, big time. There’s no denying that his New Age worldview, which is decidedly pagan, has been embraced by many fans of the hit series. As a result of the film makers’ brilliant marketing strategy, most people in America have heard of Yoda, Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi. You’d have to be living on another planet far, far away not to have heard the phrase “may the Force be with you!” Try as they might, parents know that it is almost impossible to shield their kids from the Star Wars marketing machine.
So with all this in mind, how should those with a Christian worldview handle Star Wars? Dr. Jones offers some excellent advice.
George Lucas identifies himself as a "Buddhist Methodist" (an oxymoron). He was raised Methodist and became enamored with Eastern Religion before creating Star Wars. That is probably why Star Wars contains aspects of both Christianity and Eastern Religion (more so of the latter).
