In the movie Superman Returns, Superman comes to see Lois and explains why he left and came back. He takes Lois for a flight through the night sky high above the earth. As they hover, Superman says:
S: What do you hear?
S: I hear everything….
S: You wrote “The world does not need a Savior, but every day I hear people crying out for one.”
Isn’t that so true. If you have the ears and eyes to discern the cry of humanity all around us; they cry out for a Savior. From atheist to agnostic to right out vile pagan – While even in the midst of outright denying the existence of God, their lives, their pain, their dreams and life longings cry out for a Savior.
Instead of self-righteous disdain for the behavior and religious beliefs of others, we should be moved to compassion for a crying humanity in need of a Savior.
“He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” Micah 6:8
Who is going to show them the way?
