Seriously? Superman Sermons?

Your congregation enjoying the "Man of Steel" movie too much and your sermons not enough? Here's relief!

The Man of Steel Ministry Resource Site is pitching its resources and sermon material for the seeker-sensitive, culture-centered preacher. The header ad states, "Here you'll find everything you need to educate and uplift your congregation: Including Free Videos, Sermon Outlines and Images." Further down the page we are told "Kids will better appreciate Jesus and his sacrifice through looking at scripture and the parallels in the Man of Steel movie" and that "Superman’s mythical origins are rooted in the timeless reality of a spiritual superhero who also lived a modest life until extraordinary times required a supernatural response."

Just let us know if you're stocking up. We'll be sure to take you off the "sub list" for speakers at our church.

May we set forth the truth plainly, and forcefully renounce handling the word of God deceitfully, neither distorting it for popularity nor gain. (Cf. 2 Corinthians 4:2)
