called the T-1000. The Terminator 1000 has a mission that is quite opposites from the
Terminator that is to protect John Connor, and this Terminator is also the most lethal
machine ever created. This Terminator has a mission to destroy John Connor. Why? to
prevent the freedom fighter from ever occurring in the future. The Terminator 800 also

is on to see who will get their hands on John Connor first. In the last second during a high

Christ. He not only protects both Sarah and John throughout the drama, but he sacrifices
everything in his path. He is crafty and can change form in order to deceive.
It is claimed that the presentation of Sarah incorporates both Jewish tradition and modern
theologians. This means that the sinful state is inherited and unavoidable for human beings.
Consider his background. He is a foster child whose mother taught him to steal. One can

the desert, she has a mental soliloquy about the faithfulness of the T-800. Sarah notes that
others). A second coming is important for both (Hanry Howard 149).
There are also several similarities between the T-1000 and the Devil:
The Devil is thought to change form. In Christian tradition Satan takes the form of a
serpent and he is called the beast. Also, look at 2 Corinthians 11:14. Clearly, just as the
T-1000’s main asset is his ability to change form, so is it Satan’s. The T-1000 desires death
for John (i.e.. ?everyman?). Likewise, Satan desires death for all men according to
Christian tradition. Look at Revelation 19:20. We see that the Devil will be thrown alive

R.C. Sproul has a lot to say about judgment day. In one of his books, called ?Now,
day. A Christians should realize that there might be all sorts of possibilities for a Christian
to become victim of suffering during the tribulation or by different sorts of trials, or by a
abscission in building the chip. We might ask God why he allows us to be the victim of
someone else?s unkindness. God puts us to many tests to see if we have faith in him. This
makes us victims of another attack by Satan, but we have to remember that God is
sovereign over all of those things. Recall the scientist being the victim of Sarah Connor?s
violent behavior when she shot him in the shoulder during her unexplained, violent act in
his house. A Christian therefore, should take this as an test of Satan?s attack to turn away
to God when things happen to us (R.C. Sproul 99).
Recall in the movie Terminator2 a shocking dream Sarah Connor has which shows
a city being devoured by a wall of fire in which three million people die in not entirely a
minute. Sproul asks whether or not the Scriptures say that during the last days the earth
will be destroyed or that God will regenerate the substance that already exists here? One
thing is certain, while the judgment will come to all men, the expression of God?s wrath
Christians such as Sproul look at judgment day as a purification process rather a
destructive process. A process in which the old will be renewed, restored, and brought
back to life (R.C. Sproul 100)
We have to agree that the format in which judgment day was explained and in
Terminator 2 was easy to understand. After all, we understand the concept of a nuclear
Therefore in the movie. The Bible teaches us that we will be judged by the same measures
by which we judge others. The indication is that Judgment Day will cause a massive
give is what we can expect to receive. Mr. Sproul finds an answer that soothes the thought
of pain. If we find our selves in a situation in which we are aware of the cause and harm of
others, and we do it any ways, the ?just Judge? or better known as God will give us a
more hurtful judgment. If we find our selves in a situation where we do not know the
cause, and the effect will become tragic, the ?just Judge? will recognize our mistake.
Therefore, we have to ask our selves, did we allow the nuclear bomb to be created
because we didn?t know better, or was it created for specific purposes (Sproul 132)?
As Christians in the world we should exposes our selves to everything, because
through exposure we can learn how to be better Christians, and what we have to do in
order to get closer to our saver. Almost all Christians would agree that the movie

a movie like the Terminator 2. The movie teaches the viewer how evil the world really is

nature of killing is a sin. Therefore, no one should kill (Hunt 78).
Humanity is also considered as a threat in this movie. The entire movie is based on
the near extinction of humanity, and the way the movie brings across the message of
?Global Peace? and he talks about the prophetic message coming across from some
researchers these days. he simply says that many people have prophesied the end, and even
as early as the apostles, people have known that we are living in the end of times. So it is
only expected that the nearer we approach the year 2000 the more talk there will be
peace and plenty, since not everyone expects God?s judgment.
The movie Terminator 2 deals with the wrong morals to those that will develop
any morals by watching the movie. The movie Terminator 2 deal with the fact that
extremes the movie goes into is kill for peace. Normally the two would contradict each
other because if one wants peace then killing is not the best way of arriving at peace. The
movie does not deal with moral in the right ways, because it also teaches that future can
the end. He sovereignty rules over all human history. But in the movie, Sarah Connor, her
son, and the Terminator 800 are trying to change the future by first killing the scientist so
that the end will not come. As Christians, we have some what different morals then
non-Christians have. Therefore, we will view this movie differently then non-Christian
would whether we like it or not. It is therefore very important to realize that God tells us
not only to look into the Bible for answers, but in addition we should also look into the
nature to find what God has revealed to us (Lindsey 78)
One idea that was taken from the Bible was the ?Judgment Day?. This will be a
day when Christ will return and judge all man. Throughout history men tried to predict the
day He will come back but no one has done it yet. In order to keep people informed of
such an event, many have gone out to explain this upcoming event to those that may not
know so much about it. Terminator 2 was one of the best ways of explaining this event
using a different approach to it so that all come watch the movie and think about such a
possibility in the future.
