Putting the Soul
back in Psychology!
We are all originally given the good desire to fight against evil...which is given to us by God, for we are made for good in His image and likeness.
We are all originally given the good desire to fight against evil, which is given to us by God, for we are made for good in His image and likeness. This is why media depicting humans fighting evil are popular, especially among the male gender.
Unfortunately, these non-historical fantasy books, movies, TV programs, and video games depicting humans fighting evil are psycholgically/spiritually harmful for us, and demons utilize them as a distraction from us choosing to actually fight temptations from them (the demons themselves).
This type of media includes books and their movies (along with the visual graphics and back ground music psychologically/spiritually negatively affecting us) such as but not limited to: "The Lord of the Rings", "The Matrix", "Harry Potter", "Star Wars", and "The Lion, Witch, and the Wardrobe", and all superhero themes, regardless if it is deemed "classic literature" by humans, or regardless of how well written or entertaining they are.
Because as we waste the relatively short time here on Earth that God has given us entertaining and distracting ourselves from His presence with the fantasy that we are doing good fighting against evil, in objective reality we are failing to correctly and daily use this precious God given time fighting against the evil/sin (absence of Moral Truth+Love+Virtues) inside of us and compensating for it all.
We are subconsciously trying to fulfill this good desire in us to fight against evil, in the twisted fantasy way of fighting evil exteriorly to ourselves in the form of self-centered entertainment as if we have the power of God without the help of God.
Meanwhile, entertaining ourselves becomes our sinful habitual priority while we fail to obey God's priority for us to actively fight all day everyday day to become: self-aware of, sorry for, and healed of every detail of our interior evil, called sin ( the absence of Moral Truth+Love+Virtues), inside our intellectual soul.
Inside ourselves is the primary place where the real battle against the forces of darkness exists, in which each and every one of us needs to participate daily.
