Tonight, I watched Divergent. Let me preface this review with this. I have not read the Divergent book, they’re not my style. So why did I watch the movie, you ask? Because I’m married, that’s why.
Divergent is a story of a young woman who expects to discover her purpose in life, only to discover that she doesn’t fit in anywhere. To me, this sounds a lot like high school. As it turns out, being different is bad. Really bad. Not as bad as the movie, but still. The people call this state “divergent”. People who are divergent are unable to be controlled by the smart people.
Ah, the smart people. The elitist left or right, who know how to better handle things than everyone else. They also know how to use mind control against law enforcement. So they use this mind control technology to attempt to take over the city. But I’m sure you can guess that our leading roles, who are a divergent, stop them.
I’m sure that to a teenager, these events would translate well into their own life events in High School. But to the rest of the world, it would translate well to recent events in Missouri, Turkey, or the Ukraine. But what it’s really like is the Middle East where being anything other than Muslim will end in the death of you and your family. Because, well, you are divergent. You are awake, and you won’t conform.
Are you awake? Are you paying attention to the signs? Jesus is coming back someday soon, and things are going to get a lot worse before they get better.
