Comments: Hay, this is a phat site ... and informative. Even though some of it is a stretch, it is still a great site. I enjoyed my visit. I do wanna say one thing, though. About the spoon boy ... to me and a few other ministers, the spoon represented faith ... not looking at situations the way they present themselves, but ... to look at them from a spiritual aspect. Great example - you pray for the Lord to bless you with a job. And He gives you peace about it. Well, right after you interview for the job, someone else is hired. You are baffled because the Lord TOLD you you would get that job. Now, you pray again and proceed to apply for other jobs, on your own. However, He tells you He said He would bless you with THAT job! That is where the 'spoon' comes in. You can't see how you will get that job or how He will work it out, but He will. So ... you wait on Him. Bills mount, you get a telephone disconnection notice and ... it's looking grim. However, you get a call from the place. The person they hired FAILED the drug test. Without faith, you wouldn't have waited for the Lord. You would have applied for something else. You can't look at your situation. In a spot like that, it seems impossible. However, when you are in Christ, you can't look at the normal as being 'normal' ... you have to walk by faith! The tiniest amount of faith can move mountains! I am living proof God can defy the laws of this world. Whenever you get a chance, check out my site. I was in a van when I was a missionary. I lost control of the van and crashed into a car, tree and a truck. I wasn't wearing my seat belt and I was flying toward the windshield. Physics dictate I should have flown through the windshield, but I praise the Lord He is above physics. I really enjoyed the site and I am encouraging all of my friends to check out this site! Be blessed and check out my site sometime! - In His Service, <>< Bro. Will

Comments: There is more to the matrix than just another film.Deep truth is hidden in the film.I am a reborn christian and the story behind the film really encouraged and strengtend me. It is true if you read the bible,there is more to life than just this life.(He Who gives up his life for Christ's sake will find it,but he who keeps his life for himself will lose it)Thank's very much for a deep and good film. You will only understand the film spiritually if you are reborn by the spirit of God.The carnal man cannot understand the tings of the spirit.

Comments: What a load of junk! Sorry, you have done a nice job with this site, but for "christ sake", THINK whith the thing that is above your shoulders! I'm so sick and tired of all of you who believe that christianity is the ONLY religion in the whole world and that everything should be based upon it. Christianity can be good. Just as well as Hinduism or Witchcraft or nature-religion...but cristianity is not the only, nor the ultimate religion, so please, make the world a better place and understand that The Matrix has nothing to do about christianity. Sure there is lots of symbolism in The Matrix, but not all of it eminates from the christian beliefe. Appreciate this movie for what it is. Not for what you want it to be. Regards, Seq

Comments: Hi. I just got done reading your parallels between Neo and Jesus and I have to say, "Wow!" The funny thing about this is that I was commenting to my girlfriend as we were leaving the theater on the concepts within The Matrix that corresponded to Christianity in some way. Anyway, I have another aspect on the Judas/Cypher concept that you didn't have posted. In Blockbuster, they had tags up with little pieces of trivia concerning the movie, not that I didn't catch it myself, but I know that I wasn't the only one thinking this. "Cypher" is part of the name "Louis Cypher', a name used by a character in the movie Angel Heart. Well, if you haven't seen that movie, I don't want to spoil it for you, so I will go no further. If you have seen it, then you know what I'm talking about. Otherwise, go rent it and I'm certain you'll know by the end of the movie. Thanks for the enlightenment, Chris

Comments: The symbology in the Matrix was what made it such a great movie. Humans have a real need for a spiritual connection to something, and movies like Star Wars, and The Matrix feed that need. That is why they do so well in the box office. Hopefully Hollywood never realizes this, or we might be presented with some horrrible copycatting.

Comments: I find your page interesting in the highest respects, however, I don't think this is a Messiah movie or even a parallel. I mean it very well could be and it makes it more exciting, but I think some Hollywood writers wanted to tell a story and used the bible as a guideline. Maybe they thought no one would pick up on it, or maybe they were hoping people would. Either way it does make for vigorous, exciting and perplex film. I loved the movie and will now read the book. Not sure if a second movie would be any good, but we'll see what the future holds. Besides, if it uses the bible as a guide for a story line, there are many more chapters in this saga!

Comments: Hi. Seen the Matrix 3 times. Every time that i saw it it reminded me of Jesus and Angels. You see Morpheaus said that there was a world that we can't see that others are fighting to make better. The truth in that is that there are angels all around and demons all around that we can see but can't see because our minds have not expanded to be able to see and fight the demons or in the Matrixs' sense the demons are the Androinds. Like the movie you can take the blue pill and you wake up in your own bed believing what you want to believe, or you can take the red pill and your eyes are opened and you can see for the very first time in your WHOLE LIFE! If we see the blue pill as the devils and temptations of this world and we take the blue pill the devils' army grows stronger until we can wake up everyone's eyes to God. Some people are not ready though to be woken up but they will be and don't give up. Now the red pill it means that your eyes are opened to God and you can spot the temptations of Satan EASIER until you die and your eyes get rid of the sleepy gunk in your eyes and you can defeat the demons of Satan and STRANGTHEN the resistance between Good and evil And the REALITY of GOD!! Remember Theres A little bit of GOD in every bit of good. So do what I did take the red pill. Bobbert age 13

Comments: I also noticed the fabulous symbolism in this best-of-all sci-fi movie to date imho. I also noticed a touch of Zen, & an almost equal dose of nihilism. I couldn't figure if the writer was selling zen and nihil with christian symbols or trying to promote christian ideas with nihil and/or zen images. I gave up trying to be a mindreader and enjoyed it as the latter, while guessing now that he was utilizing all these to maximize the promotion of box office cash.

Comments: This is a great page. The comparisons to Christianity are fascinating. A few questions though... What did Trinity mean when she said to Neo, "You can go to hell because you're not going anywhere else." Also, I believe that Neo in his person is a closer match to Buddhist self-enlightenment than Christian total reliance on God. I also noticed in the "bend the spoon" scene that it made me think of the Scripture about learning from a child, (I don't quote Scripture well). Thanks for the great info.

Comments: Youíre right on target with your explorations of the Christian symbolism in the film. Since the dominant theme is the dream-like nature of reality, however, I would say that Neo is more a Buddha figure than a Christ figure. According to the Christian church, Jesus was born, died, and resurrected to save humanity. He didnít do this by teaching people to question the reality of their daily existence, however. Buddha did that. Jesus taught people to forgive their "enemies," to be "meek," and to love unconditionally. Can you imagine Jesus dressed in black leather, toting automatic weapons and kick-boxing a path to human salvation? Buddha also embraced unconditional love, but the focus of his teachings was the unreality of the world we seem to live in. I could imagine Buddha, dressed in a trench coat and dark glasses, leading his disciples through a spray of metallic projectiles, and chiding at them when they fall down. Guns donít kill people, he would say with a wry smile-- bullets kill people. But how can you punch a hole in nothingness?

In addition to these thoughts, It has great significance with the world in so many aspects. It's great to see your thoughts and the parallelism with the Bible. The matrix definitely is the "the veil that blinds us." I own the Matrix-DVD and I much anticipate the next two. It better win all four academy awards!!!! We're all looking for a higher understanding; this movie speeds up our minds and allows us to experiment in our own personal perceptions of the world, and it does it so ellegantly. God is Supreme!!

Comments: A more incisive question than where are you from would be ;"Why are you here?" That answer would be; to explain the Word. Explanations such as, Yeshuas' second answer to the high priests was "...the second most important commandment is the new one that I bring from my Father and that is "Love your neighbor as yourself." After years of searching for the meaning of the term 'Love' that would make it possible for it to apply to some of my rather unlovable neighbors I found that by viewing the inverse of it, its true nature was revealed. The inverse of love...or anti-love? 1 John 4:18 paraphrased: Love is not fear, Fear is not love. Even my rottenest neighbors qualify with this definition. This also gives additional meaning to Trinitys resurrecting Neo with love and the words,"I am no longer afraid" ,and neither was Neo once he knew that he had conquered death. Congratulations upon catching the Truth in "Matrix"! No one else here at U. of Mo. Columbia, that I'm aware of, has.

Comments: My experience of the Matrix film is that if you get stuck in any kind of dogma, you cannot find your way to freedom. Having taken a "dip" into the threads of Matrix and Messiah book VI, many of the statements from folks seem to be about how the movie supports their religious beliefs. It is my opinion that this is not the intention of the movie. **Thank you very much.** [note heavy sarcasm here] It is about more that "axes to grind." Remember how Agent Smith's mind set or programming was what kept him stuck into rote behaviors. Enuf said.

Comments: I take exception to the comment in The Matrix - A Cyberpunk Parable?, III. The Matrix as a Cyberpunk Parable B. The Parable 1. TRACKING: Confusion, Contact, and Conviction 1a. Apartment S: "This might be paralleled to much of the blatantly anti-God / anti-Christian media of today." If anything it is because of the GOD and Western/Christian conservatives of today. There is more of that than anti-Christian. There are very few of those (even Maryln Manson is more anti-everything than a particular sect, read some of his articles (pretty sharp guy for a freak, actually :) )). These kind of comments in the parable are sloppy, reckless and ill-conceived. Better to suggest that Morpheus is mis-portrayed as was many biblical figures than most modern ones.

But, if you think about it! Thats the truth. The real world in the film is actually the fake world in real life. And the fake world in the film is actually the real world as we know it!

Thank you Mr. Copeland for showing a strong connection between two of my favorite things...My faith in God, and the best movie ever made or to be made...It is reassuring to know that someone is doing such great works for God, ..I feel that in our country today, there is a deep spiritual awakening in the youth of america..and I feel like God is bringing about a revolution..Not a political one mind you, but one within the hearts and minds of all who have ears that hear..It is only a matter of time before we "Fling Down Jezebel" and allow God to be praised in all his glory wherever and whenever we choose.

I found your view points (if I can use those words) knowledgeable and truthful. I am not Christian (nor do I put a label on my believe in God) but I KNOW of Jesus' message. I see many other insights to this movie, from what you would term "pagan" or 'philosophical' or with 'Eastern traditions', but there were a few that you helped me out on seeing. Thank you for putting up your site, can't wait for the Matrix 2. Many blessings to you and may the Supreme Being guide your way. Blessed Be

I praise each and every person that work on this movie. I would love to be one the technical advisors on the next two movies,and maybe get a frame shot. People need something to hope for,dream of,be a part of and relate to. God speed. Science and Technology are noting! but a comformation of the existance of God. Christopher E. Wright

Comments: I agree with the parallels of this movie, but I feel it is the message it gives that is most exciting... rather than the similarities. There are so many wonderful messages in this movie. My favorite is the scene prior to meeting the oracle. The child: "Do not try to bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead, only try to realize the truth." Neo: "What's that?" child: "There is no spoon. Then you'll see it is not the spoon that bends. It is only yourself." This speaks to me so vividly. A similar verse of the Bible is Romans 12:2 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is-His good, pleasing and perfect will. There are so many of these examples throughout the movie but this one sticks out the most. Best description of this movie: a modern day parable. My only question is... what does the writer of this movie have to say about all of this?

I have seen the movie recently (where was I this past half a year?) and love it absolutely. I'm a new-born Christian and really appreciate the comparison you've made. Matrix is still showing here and still to a full house, and it's great to be working in cinema bussines - I've got free tickets! Will go couple of times more. Thanks, Cecil - God bless.
