This isn’t Rick Warren’s quote now. It’s the Ancient One. Marvel hits a lot of theological points that would make atheists think twice. Here are seven points that we can say about the theology of Dr. Strange.



I had a conversation about “crimes” we committed in our entire lifetime. In building relationships, we come to a time where we exposed our vulnerabilities, and that includes being honest about who we were in the past. That way, when we come clean, we don’t have to keep looking behind us because we know that our past has a way of haunting us, if we don’t deal with it.

This is a tsunami of epic proportions. This is the background of the film, The Impossible.
