One of my favorite passages in the Bible is Act 4:19-20. Here are the verses in context:
“What should we do with these men?” they asked each other. “We can’t deny that they have performed a miraculous sign, and everybody in Jerusalem knows about it. But to keep them from spreading their propaganda any further, we must warn them not to speak to anyone in Jesus’ name again.” So they called the apostles back in and commanded them never again to speak or teach in the name of Jesus.
VS. 19-20: But Peter and John replied, “Do you think God wants us to obey you rather than him? We cannot stop telling about everything we have seen and heard.”
BOLD! Threatened by authorities and still they stand in the fear of God. Oh how I am reminded of this watching Wonder Woman. I mean, she just don’t care – Honey Badger don’t care – she’ll walk right into a military council and speak truth and tell them what cowards they are. She knows what’s at stake: LIVES. PEOPLE. And she will not compromise.
If you’re a fan of the film, why did you love it so much? What was your favorite part?
Side note: We’re getting a Wonder woman sequel. Woo hoo! Not shocking really, but still. Heyyy… Here’s some more info:
