"The Gospel According to Wall-E"

Sept. 12, 2021 - Matt Herndon

"The Gospel According to Wall-E"

  • Movie Summary
  • Biblical Theme #1: Adam and Eve in the Garden
  • “The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it” (Gen. 2:15).
  • “It is not good for man to be alone. I will make a helper for him” (Gen. 2:18).
  • And yet, how many of us try to live our lives alone? Marriage and friendship rates are all down in America.“
  • Again I saw something meaningless under the sun: There was a man all alone” (Ecc. 4:7-8).
  • “Adam and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame” (Gen. 2:25).
  • How lonely are you? How desperate are you? Enough to risk being vulnerable with others about who you really are?
  • Biblical Theme #2: Noah and the Corruption of Earth
  • “Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight and was full of violence” (6:11).
  • “Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God” (Gen. 6:9).
  • How realistic and Biblical is the ending of Wall-E?
  • What needs to change for things to end differently for us?
  • Sin must be judged and removed. And it will be. “We give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty, the One who is and who was, because you have taken your great power and have begun to reign. The nations were angry, and your wrath has come. The time has come for judging the dead. The time has come to destroy those who destroy the earth” (Rev. 11:17-18).
  • “The Lamb is worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and with your blood you purchased for God persons from every tribe and language and people and nation. You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God, and they will reign on the earth” (Rev. 5:9-10).
  • Wall-E Final Scene. Love can help us remember who we are.
