This is the 2nd message in our God At The Movies Series at The Element. Every summer, the Element launches this popular series, where we take movies and talk about the deeper spiritual messages found in them.
Who doesn't love Transformers? I mean really, what's better than a group of robots being lead by someone named Optimus Prime? While the special effects are amazing and the music score is epic, there's a deeper spiritual truth that must be seen. While Optimus Prime was a great leader, he empowered his people (or robots) to be equally great leaders in their own right. A great leader doesn't create great followers, they create other great leaders. Jesus did the same for us. By sending His Holy Spirit He in essence made us into leaders just like Himself and it's our job to step up and follow His example.
