Has anyone else noticed how the original trilogy Star Wars films relate in many ways to chistianity. You have the good side of the force (which I associate with god) and then there is the evil side of the force which I think of as Satan. The way the jedi die is different between the 2 sides. Good jedi die peacfully and are at rest. The bad jedi die in great pain. (meaning there will be much pain and suffering for them in the after life)
When D. Vader died he had redeemed himself and went on to the light side, even though he lived a life of hate the good in him came out and saved him, which I believe happens in real life.
Yoda explains the force as always being, which is what god is. The sith (satan) tempts you with easy power and other such things which starts you down their path and makes you more and more like them unless you resist them. Which we all know is SO hard to do.
I could go on and on but I thought I'd start this topic and see if I am or am not alone in thinking there is a relationship between SW and chistianity. What do you think? You have any other examples that you think are directly related? Love to hear them.
