L: May the Force be with you.

C: And also with you.

L: And now for a reading from the Gospel of Luke.

The Episcopal Church of the Ascension, had decided that their fall outreach teaching series will draw the parallels between the Christian faith and the pantheistic Buddhist religion presented in the Star Wars movies. Ahem…we seem to remember that scripture states, “what fellowship has light with darkness? What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever?” (2 Corinthians 6:14–15) So why would a Christian church try to syncretize Christianity with a false and idolatrous religion? Answer: Because said “church” doesn’t believe teach and confess Biblical Christianity.
