God of the Bible vs Thanos

how I saved the world (Jesus)

Bible verse and the Spirit of Prophecy insight

Isaiah 25:8

He will swallow up death forever,
And the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces;
The rebuke of His people
He will take away from all the earth;
For the Lord has spoken.

God does not desire the destruction of any. “As I live, saith the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die?” Ezekiel 33:11. Throughout the period of probationary time His Spirit is entreating men to accept the gift of life. It is only those who reject His pleading that will be left to perish. God has declared that sin must be destroyed as an evil ruinous to the universe. Those who cling to sin will perish in its destruction.

Ellen G. White – Christ’s Object Lessons p.123.3

Present day application

For the few who might read it but are unfamiliar with who Thanos is: he is the principal antagonist in the second highest grossing film ever. Avengers Endgame is a film which portrays Thanos as a supervillain who destroys half of the population of the universe. His action is later reversed by an assembly of Earth’s superheroes called Avengers. Many who watched the film claim that Thanos has the characteristics of the God of the Bible. Let us see if there is any truth in it.

Foremost, Thanos does not judge whom to spare and whom to destroy. The destruction is random. The God of the Bible will destroy only those who chose to be destroyed. Those who have rejected that great salvation purchased by the death of the only sinless man who ever lived—Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Secondly, the act of Thanos does not really solve the two main universal problems: sin and death, as both still exist after he finishes his work. When the God of the Bible executes His strange act of the destruction of the wicked, it will solve the issue of sin and death forever.

To understand why films like this become the most grossing movies, one has to realise that the best way to hide a true diamond is to drown it in a sea of broken glass. There is only one way to save this planet, and eventually the entire universe, from the virus of sin! The creators of stories like ‘The Avengers’ try to ‘sell’ us false hope, false sense of security, and ultimately the false savior. One reason God has not destroyed humanity yet is because He wants the unfallen beings of the universe to see where does sin lead to. Think of it as a vaccination against the virus of sin that works for eternity – there will be no need for a second dose.
