    The time Nightcrawler got Wolverine to pray

    Post  Reed Benson on March 7th 2018, 6:51 pm

    I saw this on the geeks Under Grace Facebook page. Unfortunately, this is a Facebook video, so I don't think I can embed it here. But it's a pretty cool blast from the past for me. It's a collection of clips from an episode of X-Men where Nightcrawler did a lot of preaching. He didn't present the Gospel, per se, but he talked a lot about God's great love and was undeterred by skeptics like Wolverine and Gambit. He even got Wolverine to pray at the end.

    It's amazing that a loving, confident, non-hypocritical Christian character was allowed on a popular TV show back in the day. Hopefully, this convinced (and still convinces) some seekers to look deeper into God.

    Here's the video: https://www.facebook.com/elcoquidenuevayork/videos/10154451670982951/

    And hey, if you take the "once saved, always saved" view, Wolverine might even have eternal life! (In the video he said "I used buy into all that.")

    I remember watching that when I was a kid, good memories. Smile
    The official cannon for the Marvel universe states that its origin is the big bang and evolution, which is not the biblical world view:

    It always feels weird to me when they throw Christianity in the mix.

    That's why this episode was so surprising. But I kind of doubt that the writers were thinking about the entirely of the Marvel universe's canon when they put it together.

    As a side note, there are many Christians (including some in our community here) who, based on the Biblical text itself, allow for the possibility of Big Bang cosmology and/or some form of evolution. So there are actually multiple origin views that are arguably "biblical". But that's really a discussion for another thread if someone feels like starting one.

    That’s probably true. I wonder how much little stuff like that had an influence on me towards Christianity; didn’t get saved until I was a teenager.

    Yeah, that’s not surprising. I personally don’t see it, unless one attributes “Let there be light” to an explosion, and microevolution to variations within the kinds. I can see that (especially the latter). But the other stuff, not at all.
