Do you believe in Superman - Able to fly to the scene where his help is needed

With all the trouble in this world of ours, do you think Clark Kent could respond to every wrong, every tragedy, every injustice?  As needy and greedy as we are, I’m certain Clark would have felt it necessary to leave the earth and never return as those who dwell on it never seem to learn from their mistakes.  But Jesus was always at the right place at the right time, whether it was a disillusioned Samaritan woman at a well (John ch 4) or needing to calm a sudden storm for the apostles in a boat on the Sea of Galilee (Luke 8:22-25).  His power, concern, compassion and love are just a call away through the gift of prayer He has extended to us.   Superman couldn’t resolve the root cause of the evil of this world – sin.  But Jesus died in our place and one day He will return and sin will be eradicated from this world of ours and there will finally be peace.   This qualifies Him as a superhero.
