Half man, half raging beast; unable to control his actions and desires. Left to the mercy of - of what? The full moon? Where did this legend come from?
Man has always struggled with his darker side. From the fall of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, sin temps us all. And all, except one, has fallen prey. It is always a choice with us.
Now many will say that their sin is not their fault. Like the werewolf, they had no choice. They were at the mercy of the elements that control them, and therefore are not responsible for their actions. Like the werewolf is at the mercy of the full moon, so we are at the mercy of evil. But the truth is we are all responsible for our actions. We can choose our good side over our bad side. God will never give us more than we can bear.
Are werewolves real? Well, I’ve never seen one, although I love to read about them. Because I can relate to the inner conflict they suffer. From wanting to do the right thing, but constantly being pulled away, to the joy they feel when they come back to their true selves. The reconciliation they face with friends and loved ones, in some ways mimics the reconciliation we have with Christ when we realize the depth of our own sin and come back to Him.
Is the struggle of the werewolf real? Yes. As real as the struggles you and I face every day.
So next time you read about, hear, or even see a werewolf, remember this: There is evil in the world, but through Christ we can overcome. Evil does not have to rule our lives. We have the choice to turn to Him.
Out of the ground the LORD God caused to grow every tree that is pleasing to the sight and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
"For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.
For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing.
