Thor’s new incarnation as a female goddess.

 

Holy hammer Batman! Can this be true? The ultimate shape-shifting? Yes, according to Marvel Comics, Thor has become a lady. Well, perhaps not a lady, but a woman. What will Odin say? Will Freya take this personally and mount a challenge? (Freya is the sex goddess of Norse mythology, aka Jezebel.) Says Marvel writer Jason Aaron, “This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is THOR. This is the THOR of the Marvel Universe. But it’s unlike any Thor we’ve ever seen before.”
Now for some serious thoughts. Thor is not only a comic book character but also a god of Odinism, a pagan Norse religion. And Thor is a demon I’ve met many times. A nasty, violent, vicious demon. He’s not someone you’d casually pair with Captain America. As for this new politically correct feminization of Thor, it’s just more demonic deception. Satan wants us to think of him and his minions in terms of fantasies and characterization, not spiritual realities who are evil entities with the power to possess human souls. Like the cartoon image of the devil in a red suit with pitchfork, this new lady-like image of Thor belies the real evil behind mythologized gods and goddesses. If the devil get humans to think of actual demons in terms of images on paper in a comic book, he more cleverly can do his real dirty deeds. In the well-known words of C. S. Lewis in The Screwtape Letters, “There are two equal and opposite errors into which our race can fall about the devils. One is to disbelieve in their existence. The other is to believe, and to feel an excessive and unhealthy interest in them. They [the demons] themselves are equally pleased by both errors and hail a materialist or a magician with the same delight.”


An encouraging word:  ENEMIES SENT FROM SATAN“Their throat is an open grave!” That is vivid language. It’s how David in Psalm 9:5 described his enemies. Ever smelled a dead human body? I have, and anyone else who has will corroborate that it is the most putrid smell on earth. Have you noticed how rescue workers in the midst of a tragedy with fatalities often cover their mouths and noses? Some enemies, like those of David, are like that because of the demonic influence in their lives. Without being inappropriately judgmental, we need to know when those who oppose us are sent by Satan and the stench of death is in their words and ways. There is a time, in cases like this, when we need to spiritually cover our faces and resist these “messengers from Satan.”
