What? You do not know the Green Lantern Oath? For shame.
Say it along with me:
“In brightest day, in blackest night, No evil shall escape my sight.Let those who worship evil’s might, Beware my power… Green Lantern’s light!“
If you are going to use the oath in any of your up coming messages, by all that is holy, let’s get it right.
Here are some themes you could use using the the Green Lantern’s Oath
“In brightest day, in blackest night” I Peter 3:15, 16, 2 Timothy 4:2
Let’s always be ready, no matter what the conditions, to share the good news
No evil shall escape my sight. Romans 12:9, Hebrews 5:14, 2 Timothy 2:22
We have to be wise, discerning what is good from what is evil.
Let those who worship evil’s might Proverbs 14:22, Romans 2:8
If you choose to love and do what is evil, it is not going to work out for you.
Beware my power… Green Lantern’s light!“ 2 Corinthians 12:9, Ephesians 1:19, I John 4:4
Obviously, evil doers will not fear OUR power, but the ONE who is in us is greater than he that is in the world.
Green Lantern was a simple movie and much maligned movie but I enjoyed it. If you’re a believer, you won’t be able to not see the spiritual parallels.
