How to Act As a Christian Super Hero

How can you "act as" a Superhero/heroine? Well, "super" means "at a higher level, or of a high grade or quality, and is highly approved".[1] Okay, to be called "hero/heroine" seems to mean having "special achievements and noble qualities."
How is this possible as a Christian? Well, without being full of pride you can say, "I am a 'child of the King' and 'a brother' and 'heir and joint heir/heiress' of the Father through His son.

There are many situations that may point to a level above and to greater or nobler achievements as you breathe and have your being--your life in The Truth and have an extraordinary purpose to serve his children here on earth.

When you face the court of opinion about the fact that you have seen the light--of course, you won't crawl across the ceiling like a spider (man or woman), and perhaps you're not sure what to do next.

    Understand faith. Faith is the origin of all good Christian acts, but also realize that faith doesn't only produce good acts.
    • Faith is believing in something unseen, that there is evidence of
    • Faith produces action; but action isn't always faith

    Be in direct contact with the highest authority who surprisingly said, "Whatever you do to the least of my children you do to me."--good, mediocre or bad. So, if you cheat versus help someone -- you do it to He Himself says the Master of Super Heroes of all time. So be sure yours is a purpose (vision or mission) such that it is possible to help people to understand life's challenges in a special way, and then live that vision; do the good plan; walk in the path.

    Know about conflict: "For ours is not a conflict with mere flesh and blood, but with the despots, the empires, the forces that control and govern this dark world--the spiritual hosts of evil arrayed against us in the heavenly warfare."(Ephesians 6:12)[3]Seek and find the light of the Good News and you can help friends to see the light and to escape condemnation and to escape "imprisonment" in darkness like dungeons of the second death.[4]

    Show a wanderer/stranger the way off of the shadowy, crowded expanse, as that stranger is on the broad open way to destruction. You can help people to find the light and to be saved from that "second death" through the plan of God, by grace through faith in Jesus. Tell people how to avoid the quicksand like the "Slough of Despond" in their progress through the darkness of night. The Slough of Despond is a deep bog in John Bunyan's allegory The Pilgrim's Progress, into which the character "Christian" sinks under the burdens and weight of his sins and his sense of a guilty conscience, like into a bog of sludge, but is saved by God's plan.

    Realize that you have opportunities to clearly warn and save the wanderers so that you may "all fly away," so be the "heroic witness". You may know that "If I had the wings of an angel, over these prison walls I would fly" were the words of an old spiritual which inspired the author of I'll Fly Away to speak of flying "like a bird [man or woman] from prison bars has flown." in the song "I'll Fly Away." That song saying that I will fly away has been called the most recorded gospel music song of all time.[5]
  5. Image titled Act As a Christian Super Hero Step 5
    Think of the supernatural quality of existence in and through the Master of the Way the one who in a supernatural way bears all your weaknesses and trespasses: "For there are three that bear record [testify] in Heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit: and these three are one."(1 John 5:7) [6] Realize that Jesus is called the Word, Way, Truth and Life in the Gospel.
  6. Image titled Act As a Christian Super Hero Step 6
    Hone your talents to as sharp an edge as possible, and put your talent to work for God--to their best uses. Your talents and abilities are shown by what you do and how and why you do those activities in which you participate like volunteering as a singer in a singing group or choir, or in a group or team at school, work or church. Don't wait to be asked or begged to join, as that is the wrong approach for a "Superhero" as a Christian...
  7. Image titled Act As a Christian Super Hero Step 7
    Dig up your buried ambitions, abilities and talents, but be humble and confident. Bragging often seems like lack of confidence, but if you "bury" your talents (as if you are embarrassed or ashamed), then they are not serving their best uses.
  8. Image titled Act As a Christian Super Hero Step 8
    Accept the freely offered approval at the super level: "For the authorities are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you like to live without being afraid of the authorities? Then do what is right, and you will receive their approval."(Romans 13:3)[7])
  9. Image titled Act As a Christian Super Hero Step 9
    Put on the whole armor of your profession. Professing the knowledge of the Truth through faith:
    1. Be covered by protection: "Put on the full armour of God so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil."(Ephesians 6:11)[8]
    2. Stand as victor: "Therefore put on the complete armor of God, so that you may be able to stand your ground on the day of battle, and--having fought to the end--to remain victors on the field."(Ephesians 6:13)[9]
  10. Image titled Act As a Christian Super Hero Step 10
    Prepare to make your testimony of the facts or events.
  11. Image titled Act As a Christian Super Hero Step 11
    Testify of what you know, understand and have experienced. "But as for what was sown on good soil, this is the person who hears the word, understands it, and produces a crop that yields 100, 60, or 30 times what was planted."(Matthew 13:23).
  12. Image titled Act As a Christian Super Hero Step 12
    Testify means give or be "witness" as:[10]
    1. attestation of a fact or event: testimony
    2. one that gives evidence; specifically: one who testifies in a cause or before a judicial tribunal
    3. one asked to be present at a transaction so as to be able to testify to its having taken place
    4. one who has personal knowledge of something
    5. a: something serving as evidence or proof: sign
    6. b: public affirmation by word or example of usually religious faith or conviction "the heroic witness..."
  13. Image titled Act As a Christian Super Hero Step 13
    Don't forget to smile and have fun with your conversation, testimony and witnessing!
  14. Image titled Act As a Christian Super Hero Step 14
    Start by walking boldly, not unlike sauntering across the room and say meekly, "Hello." Tell the wanderer your name (alias or nickname) then ask, "What is your name?" while shaking hands or offering a high five, upon his/her responding to you that way. (If you go to other cultures, greet the person according to the particular culture, e.g. in Spain greet by saying Como esta? [How are you?] with an extended hand).
  15. Image titled Act As a Christian Super Hero Step 15
    Look around observing the matrix (visual parameters), the setting, of your view. Register any worthwhile conversation piece in your eye. Point out something unusual about it--zingy!--you've got a starting place for diving into the swirl of conversation.
  16. Image titled Act As a Christian Super Hero Step 16
    Derive a compliment from an honest impression and explain why you say that. Don't lie and say you love someone's grunge hair when you think it's a mistake, but if you like his or her skates or shoes, or a noteworthy shirt or blouse because..., say so and explain what you like about it.
  17. Image titled Act As a Christian Super Hero Step 17
    Tell why you said that nice remark: A sincere compliment has to be explained to get someone to warm up to you. But be careful not to say something so personal that you scare the person off or make him or her feel uncomfortable. It is best not to compliment a person's looks or body. It might even seem like criticism in a sense or as a challenge...
  18. Image titled Act As a Christian Super Hero Step 18
    Ask some interesting questions! Most people love to talk about themselves--to get them going. "What classes are you taking this year?" "Have you seen/heard (Insert-Something-Here)? What did you think of it?" Again, keep the questions light and not invasive. Don't ask too many questions, if he or she is not seeming responsive to them.
  19. Image titled Act As a Christian Super Hero Step 19
    Deal with and accept any conversation-starters he or she might offer; take something he or she has said and run with it. Agree, disagree, ask a question about it, or offer an opinion, just don't let it go by without saying anything...
  20. Image titled Act As a Christian Super Hero Step 20
    Look your friend (person you are meeting) in the eye (like one eye then the other, or look at the face area like reading lips), it brings out trust -- but don't stare.
  21. Image titled Act As a Christian Super Hero Step 21
    Use the person's name a couple times during the conversation; it will help you remember the name. "Oh, yeah, Jodie, what do you think about Jesus Christ?", and as it draws the person's attention to what you're saying, continue to seek a statement of belief in God, Jesus. "Well, Jodie, would you like to have a quick prayer together about ____ (salvation, healing, daily-life, school, or such)?
  22. Image titled Act As a Christian Super Hero Step 22
    Ask, "Would you like to experience the miracle of receiving the Holy spirit just like the disciples in the Bible? If not, ask "Would you do that? If so, say repeat after me": "Father, I come to you to accept your plan of saving me from sin and death. I repent of my sin and my need to be saved. I accept your death, burial and I'm willing to be baptised to identify with that and resurrection to new life that you will share with me so that I can experience the miracle of spiritual salvation. I ask you to accept me as your own child. I thank you. You are worthy of all praise. Let me be a blessing to others. In Jesus Christ name I pray. Amen!"


  • Just relax about small-talk. Chances are that whatever small-talk you're making isn't going to stick out in anyone's mind a few months from now. Just say whatever comes into your head, so long as it's not offensive or weird. That is called "chatting" (but avoid "chattering incessantly"--if you hardly slowdown or just never stop)...
    • If you are shy, it will be helpful to have already thought about a topic or two that you may talk about. You can easily discuss how interesting it is to "observe people" as they walk into the room, store, gym or other place where you are talking.
    • Follow the lead that your listener is expressing. If he or she appears interested in your inputs, then continue. If he or she is looking at a clock or watch, or trying to escape, then you have been going on long enough -- so you won't be overbearing.
    • Read the Bible and also keep yourself well informed reading newspapers and magazines, viewing/listening to news reports. Increasing current events and general knowledge can give you interesting things to be relevant upon -- but don't dominate the conversation.
    • Inspiring and interesting facts or great quotes can strengthen your conversations and brighten things up, and be prime things to talk about. You could also make a set of review, conversation starter or question cards to consider for inspiration and review them every so often, but don't memorize them.
    • Influencing others over the phone or in person, you must keep the person involved in the conversation--try asking "open ended questions" as a technique. Just keep asking unobtrusive questions as long as they are appropriate that do not just require a "yes" or "no" answer. Ask "Who...", What...", "When...", "Why..." or "How..." questions. For example "How do you know the hosts?" (like at a "by invitation" party). Ask questions about what they just said or follow up with how you yourself would respond; like on how you know the hosts (for example). Remember to be sure that it is to be friendly -- not like an interrogation.
  • Part of a conversation is the way you communicate by body language--hands, eyes, face and posture, and not just what you say. Practice being friendly to be confident and better in being somewhat warm, thoughtful and confident in Christ!
  • Be super by never smoking or by quitting, which can make you live longer for your super health. So, if you smoke, research for examples of how young persons have quit smoking, even an addiction/strong habit of smoking -- by spiritual and by natural means, including through faith. Do you believe that addictions may be broken through your faith? If you say, "I don't know" -- well, pray, study and seek the Holy Spirit for help.


  • Don't hide your talents -- but don't be a "know-it-all". Use your abilities, but don't brag. Your talents and abilities are shown by what you do or participate in like a singing group, a choir or conversation, participating in the youth group at church.
  • Don't be invasive with questions, and don't use too many fill-ins like "uh-hmm" or "so-o". It may make the other person feel awkward or obligated to say something in response to "so-o..."
  • Talk slowly and pause and "let others get a word in edgewise." This slow approach may help make your newly found friend to whom you witness to be more into the conversation.
  • Don't comment negatively (try to be open-minded) on the person's or someone else's style or look... You never know whether or not they have a personal, positive opinion in favor of that style--or may be friends with the person you are critiquing.
