I know, I know, I’m a Star Wars geek, nerd, junkie, whatever! Anyway, I’ve been thinking though, and I even brought it up with my Dad and I settled on the fact that Jesus could never be a Jedi!
Okaaay, why you may ask? Well it is true that the Jedi are the guardians of peace and justice in the SW galaxy as Mace Windu says in Attack of the Clones: ‘we’re keepers of the peace…”, and the Jedi fight for what’s right and protect the weak and all that type of obvious stuff. Yes well, Jesus does those things too you may say. But every SW nerd knows that the Jedi tries to avoid attachment. Uh huh there’s the word. There is the fact that we as teenagers try really hard not to get into really deep relationships with our boy/girlfriend and try hard just to stay as “friends” because of the consequences that may come if we dive in too deep, but Jedi avoid attachments period.
Can you guess by now that Jesus can NEVER do that? Jesus can never be a Jedi because he would have to avoid attachment, and that’s one thing that Jesus just cannot do! He loves us too much for that and He wants to have a relationship with us that that’s far better than just as simple friends. With Jesus, we are one as the body of Christ and covered by the power of His great love. His love for us is too furious and too strong to want to avoid attachment, (if you ask me, Jesus would probably get expelled from the Jedi Order on the first day). He has all the qualities a Jedi has except avoiding attachment (plus He has no darkness in Him which is something Anakin had who disobeyed the rule of attachment as well).
Overall, if someone asked me if Jesus would make a great Jedi, I would say no because His love is too deep and too furious to avoid attachment.
