Matrix is a movie that came out in '99, but which has
much to say about our world today. I got a copy of
the movie and we watched it a couple of days ago. If
you have not seen it recently, I think you would find
it quite interesting. The older version. We hear about
new things in the world of AI almost every day.

The back of the dvd jacket says:

Perception: Our day-in and day-out world is real

Reality: That world is a hoax, an elaborate deception

spun by all-powerful machines of artificial intelligence
that control us.

As I watched the movie I saw many parallels to the
Christian life even though it is not a Christian film
in any sense of the word.

1. We are born into this world as sons of Adam and
therefore we are slaves to Satan from birth.

2 We live our life thinking we are in the real world
and that we have choices. We don't. We aren't free.

3 God calls us to turn away from sin and enter into a
relationship with Him through the blood of Jesus. In
Him is real life, real choices, and freedom.

4 When we receive Him we are transfered from the
Kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of light.

5 Seeing life and our flesh as it really is involves time,
suffering and surrender.

6 If we do not know who we are as Christians, what
weapons we have and who our enemy is, we will live
defeated lives.

7 '...we do not wrestle against flesh and blood but 
against cosmic powers over this present darkness. 

For though we walk in the flesh, we are not 
waging war according to the flesh, but have 
divine power to destroy strong-holds, 
arguments, and every lofty opinion against 
the knowledge of God.' (Eph 6; 2Cor 10:4)

8 We are one in Christ but not 'the one.' He is the One.

'For Freedom Christ has set us free, do not submit 
again to the yoke of slavery.' (Galatians 5:1)

Reader, Are you  still living in the 'matrix' or have you
entered into the real world of full salvation? Are you
walking in freedom? 'If the Son has set you free, you
are free indeed.' Grab it and don't let go!
