5 Reasons Christians SHOULDN’T AVOID Wonder Woman

2) Diana is bold in her beliefs, even when no one agrees with her. 

During her journey from Themyscira to her ultimate showdown with Ares, her comrades don’t truly believe a Greek God is behind the war. Even her own mother, the queen who knew the ancient tales, would not admit that it was Ares. She went so far to say that if it was the god of war, they shouldn’t be concerned with the trouble on Man’s world. Going to fight Ares means alienating her family, leaving her home, and joining a group of people who think she’s crazy to believe the war can be stopped by killing one man.

Why should this mean anything to a Christian? This is exactly what we are called to do! God has called us to firmly and boldly profess our belief in Christ and his gospel even when the whole world opposes us, even if it means our own family. If Christians had the boldness of Diana could you imagine the revival that would happen in our culture? What if we didn’t care if we lost our home, lost our family? What if we were willing to be mocked and laughed at for our beliefs? What if we never backed down no matter the opposition or the cost? We all need a little Wonder Woman in us.
