The series Supernatural revolves around two brothers hunting a demon that has killed their mother. According to the presentation today, Sam was fed demon blood since a young child and has a destiny as Lucifer’s vessel. Here, angels and demons must possess a body in order to walk around on Earth. In this case, the demon blood is comparable to the forbidden fruit and gets addicted to it, but what confused me is…is this his fault? If he was fed it since a child were his parents responsible for him consuming the blood? I am a bit confused. The colt is a weapon that is able to kill anything in the real or supernatural world, but the colt could not kill Lucifer. This is representative of the old law. The amulet is very symbolic of faith because Dean throws away the amulet when he loses faith in his brother. The amulet is present when faith is present and not present when the characters lose hope. Sam is the “Christ-like” figure for the demons. In the youtube clip that was shown in the presentation, he blames “the blood” and the female that he is talking to says “no it was you” and says that his actions are what is responsible for the events that have occurred. He tries to blame the temptation rather than himself for being easily tempted (and now addicted).
This is a reality TV game show in which contestants are placed into competing tribes. In this game, religion influences the alliances that are created and can ultimately affect who wins the final million dollars. There was a season with tribes entitled “Heroes vs. Villains”. The Villains were known for making any kind of move to try to get any kind of gain. The Heroes are honorable and virtuous. The Heroes are comparable to selfless Christians and the Villains are comparable to selfish people who act in whatever way to benefit themselves rather than the majority. There was one season that used “Exile Island” where one person was voted to live by themselves for several days. This shows how power, or winning in this case, makes people feel above others and gives them the feeling of authority to tell people where to go and what to do. In contrast, Redemption Island is reminiscent of Jesus saving humanity. When a player is sent to this island they are given a second chance to earn their way back into the competition (could be seen as symbolic of heaven). Just as the contestant gets a second chance, Jesus gave Christians a second chance to enter heaven by allowing for Christians to have their sins forgiven.
