Frankenstein And Our Culture

Frankenstein And Our Culture…

Most people who know the story of Frankenstein miss the point of the story. “Frankenstein” was not primarily a horror or monster story, but a morality tale. Dr. Frankenstein attempts to play God and create life from death.

The result is the creation of a monster that ends up destroying everything he loves and cares about, and ultimately the doctor himself. The message of the tale is biblical. When man attempts to play God, or to “become as God,” the end is always destruction and death.

We are now witnessing the phenomenon on a global scale – as man, through science, tampers with the fabric of life, or when he takes it upon himself to redefine right and wrong, or to disregard the ways of God – man is, in effect, playing God.

And the end of that road is always destruction. We live in a Frankenstein civilization. All the more, as believers, we must lift up the name of God, in everything we do. For in an end-time civilization – there are only those who play God – and those who worship Him.

For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, 1 Timothy 2:5

Lift up the name of Jesus in everything you do and make Him Lord of everything.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
