Each day I do a blog search for anything written about James the Just or the Epistle of James. This time, I found a real gem! T. J. Sode writes:
Did you know that the original Star Trek was a subliminal attempt by the Roman Catholic Church to convert the masses back to true Christianity? Who is the Captain of the Enterprise? James Tiberius Kirk. James is the brother of Jesus, and after the crucifixion, James became the leader of the early sect. Tiberius was a Roman emperor. Kirk is the most common European spelling for the English word “church.” James T. Kirk = Jesus, Roman, church. We have a Kirk or church flying through space, representing an unseen Starfleet.
Of course, Sode goes on to explain some “fascinating” connections between Spock (who represents Satan) and McCoy (who represents the “true faith”). Don’t you just love speculative “exegesis?” I wonder if there are any Trekkies out there who could chime in… Are there other connections between James T. Kirk and James the Just?
