New Page Title

I don't know whether any of you have seen the movie 'Unbreakable' with Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson.
My wife and I saw it for the second time, two days ago.

It's about this man (Bruce Willis), that works security.

He is in a train wreck and he is the only one that survives.
He isn't even injured.
His regular life sucks and is in need of a overhaul.

Well, somewhere along the line this guy that sells comic books (Samuel Jackson), a man prone to accidents (breakable), meets up with Willis and finally helps him understand that he is some kind of
Superhero, whose purpose in life is to rescue folks because he has certain abilities, including never getting hurt.

Well, finally Willis acknowledges this gift and begins to rescue people by simply looking for evil wherever it is.

This movie does not read like your typical Superhero movie. It is actually presented from an Eastern Mindset.

Don't read anymore if you don't want to hear the ending.

However, I must bring up the ending to demonstrate my point.

Well, come to find out Samuel Jackson was the one that was creating disasters like the Train Wreck that Bruce was in. Murdering all kinds of people.

The main reason for this was that he was evil and needed an identity, even if it was a despicable identity.

Kinda like the problem child that becomes so partly because the job of good child has already been taken.
Well, the movie actually has us feeling sorry for Sammy initially because of his pitiful childhood.
I'm a little fearful that this movie will give people reasons to be evil, though reasons for being good far outweigh the reasons to be evil. Being good will produce plenty of opposition of its own.

The other reason Sammy was creating these disasters was so he could find his opposite. The one that would oppose him and give his life meaning.

Once Bruce found out about this he was devastated.

The evil that happened was because Samuel was evil.

This movie was written by Shamalayan, pardon the misspelling. The typical eastern mindset here is that good and evil are dependent on each other and like the little fishies in the Yin/Yang Diagram need each other to exist.
However, one doesn't need to accept this eastern mindset to believe that we need each other.
Do you know anyone like this?
I have had opposers (evil and good) in my life that actually helped create my identity through the friction that we had between us.
I have also had encouragers that gave me the endurance to continue.
Call this a love hate relationship or whatever, but it resulted in more purpose in my life.

When Bush was elected or selected the first time, depending on your particular political bent he was disdained, ridiculed and insulted on a level that I have never seen before of a President.

All kinds of people were bent on opposing President Bush no matter what he did. His life must have been and must still be Hell.

It wasn't even certain that he would be able to accomplish anything while in office because the antagonism toward him was so great.

Enter Osama Bin Laden.

When he and his band of cowards struck the Twin Towers, it was a horrific day.

This was condemned outright by many including Bush. Bush and Rudy led the way in fighting Terrorism and rallying the masses to recover
from this tragedy.

Another thing happened on the way to the fight. President Bush now had a purpose that people were unified behind him on.

He could now get some things accomplished.

He had the world behind him.

Well, Osama helped strengthen the American People and give Bush back his Presidency. Similar to the movie, the villian gave the Hero a life.

At the same time the Hero gave the villain a purpose.

They needed each other.

This is not to say that Osama is good or Bush is evil. This is saying that because of the constant harassment of Bush by his opposers and Hollywood, Bush wouldn't be able to succeed unless
something helped unite people behind him.

I'm obviously not saying he orchestrated this, only that Bush's antagonists were relentless so when he was given a way out, he took it.

He would have taken it anyway because he cares for America.

Well, his plan to fight terrorism where the terrorist's lived is ingenius.

Bush knew what he was doing.
Now that many in the world are not behind Bush anymore, he still has purpose.
Opposition to him only makes him more stalwart. 

Osama needs Bush and vice versa.

The Hero needs the Villain and Vice Versa.

I am not advocating a relativistic eastern mindset here, only saying that in this situation the two (hero and villain) are connected.
We see tension like this in egroups.

Pretribbers and Posttribbers

Protestants and Catholics

Futurists and Preterists

Christians and Satanists.

The contrasts could go on for a long time.
Regarding one's view of the communion Paul said this, " No doubt there have to be differences among you to show which of you have God's approval."  (1 Cor. 11)
Iron sharpens iron and we need each other and the world needs us, not because I am the walrus and the walrus is me but because God says we need each other. Still, our opposition in the body of Christ ought to be civil and seeking the highest good.
