For the Son of man came to seek and to save the lost.” Luke 19: 10
I have heard a number of people say that they watched the TV show “Lost” at the beginning of its six year run, and stopped watching when things started getting weird. Well…that’s when I began watching.
I enjoyed the mystery and reoccurring philosophical themes that ran throughout the show such as good vs. evil, faith vs. reason, time travel, fate vs. free will, the importance of names, the spiritual nature of the show, and I could go on an on.
I never spent much energy on trying to figure the show out or where the writers were headed in the story line. I just watched and enjoyed and picked up little pieces here and there.
As I watched the finale this past weekend, the show ended in a church, and outside the church was a statue of Jesus with His arms outstretched welcoming all to come in.
During the six seasons of “Lost” the characters have lived in the past in flashback sequences. They have lived in the future with flash forward sequences, and they have lived in a kind of presence in what the producers referred to as side-ways sequences. No matter where they were: stranded on an island, in the past, present, or future life the characters always seemed to be lost.
That is until they were all united in the church. The church built by Jesus Christ.
