In the movie Hellboy, a demon is raised by a scientist to be a member of the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense, which is charged with the defense of the US public against supernatural menaces. The forces of evil kidnap him, his girlfriend, and another agent after killing the scientist who fathered him. The evildoers then torture his girlfriend until he takes up the mantle of “the destroyer” the demon meant to usher in the apocalypse. In the midst of the torture, Hellboy agrees- and goes to unlock the key to the pit with his own arm- built exactly for this moment, when through the moans of demonic forces ready to attack on the other side of the door, Hellboy hears the other captured agent, “You have a choice, your father gave it to you.” He then tosses the crucifix Hellboy’s father always wore, and as it burns a cross shape in his hellish hand- Hellboy looks at the evil forces that are making him do this, and fights back. –Jim L.

We too have a choice; do we fall back into what we always do: sin. Or do we rise up above all our ancestor’s failures- and conquer this evil that constantly fights for our will? Reach out, to the cross of Calvary, and fight back against these evil-doers who seek your life, for it was bought at a price.
