More on Superman and Jesus

So I decided to treat myself to a showing of the IMAX 3D version of Superman Returns.

Here's another connection to the message of Jesus you may have not thought about.

Paul, in Romans 1, speaks of how mankind suppresses the truth of God in unrighteousness. In other words, deep inside were are made with knowledge of God.

Maybe a parallel, albeit and unintentional and probably weak one, is how people don't recognize Clark Kent is Superman.

I mean it should obvious, right?

Well, Paul says:
For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were they thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish heart were darkened. (Romans 1:20-21)

And I thought not recognizing someone due to a pair of glasses was foolish.
