STAR WARS SCRIPTURE
  • Luke: I can’t believe it
  • Yoda: that is why you fail
  • Peter: gets out of the boat, takes a few steps towards Jesus, notices the storm, grows fearful, starts sinking, and calls out “save me!”
  • Jesus (catching him): O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? – Matthew 14:22-33
  • Yoda: Do. Or do not. There is no try.
  • Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. – James 1:22
  • Yoda: Size matters not. Judge me by my size do you? Hmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the force, and a powerful ally it is.
  • The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked advanced against me to devour me, it was my enemies who stumbled and fell… – Psalm 27
  • Yoda: Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force. Mourn them do not. Miss them do not. Attachment leads to jealousy. The shadow of greed that is.
  • But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. – 1 Thess 4:13

  • And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? – John 11:26
  • Yoda: Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.
  • There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. – 1 John 4:18
  • Yoda: When you look at the dark side, careful you must be, for the dark side looks back.
  • Jesus: The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. – Matthew 6:22
  • Paul: Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith;… – Hebrews 12:2a
  • Yoda: Wars not make one great.
  • Then said Jesus unto Peter, “Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.” – Matthew 26:52
