Sounds of Fundamentalism: Jesus is the Original Superman

jesus the original superman

The Sounds of Fundamentalism is a series that I would like readers to help me with. If you know of a video clip that shows the crazy, cantankerous, or contradictory side of Evangelical Christianity, please send me an email with the name or link to the video. Please do not leave suggestions in the comment section.  Let’s have some fun!

Today’s Sound of Fundamentalism is a video clip of The Marksmen Quartet singing the song, The Original Superman.

He heals the sick He saves the lost
and died for you in case you’ve forgot, man
He’ll jump a building in a single bound
I once was lost but now I’m found
He needs no mask or cape or gown
all He needs is His holy crown
it’s time for you to understand Jesus Christ the Original Superman
He’ll be your hero in the end. He is that one true super friend


Kryptonite can’t slow him down nothin’ can at all
He’s always there for you. He’ll pick you up if you should fall

He came to earth in the flesh and
Performing miracles and died for man
A forty day fast is more than I could take
he did it for you and he did it for my sake
Ye of little faith he said to them raised his hand and all was calm again
It’s time for you to understand
Jesus Christ the Original Superman

up up and away He’s saving souls in a new way
Just like Superman was there He’s always there to save the day
he works through all of us
Through Him we have the power
It’s time to unify so we can constantly devour
The devil and all of his games we need not be ashamed
Of anything we can do that we can glorify His name
Many names he has been given
Prince of Peace Son of Man
Here’s one more for his list.
the Original Superman

    Jesus is a little late to be the original superman. What about Jacob/Israel who literally wrestled with God(according to the very same contradictory unreliable cobbled together book that also gave us Jesus). What about the supermen of other pagan religions who far predated Jesus. Of course they don’t matter, there is only one true religion and that is whatever the pastor says it is.?
