Monsters, monks, Star Wars,

I realize, from a Christian point of view that the theology of Star Wars is dodgy. It is dualistic and pantheistic. “The Force” is an impersonal power in the universe which can be positive or negative. As such, the theology is defective not in being totally wrong, but in being a subordinate or lesser theology. Like all heresy, it is not totally untrue. It is half true. Nevertheless, the monsters and monks of Star Wars are a reminder to all of us that there is a battle between good and evil and that each one of us are participants in the conflict.
