The Devil Within
Battling the Heroes and the Monsters

I think Spock would disagree with that summation. Humans and Vulcans seem to have the same problem when it comes to the monsters buried deep down inside. I think he would say they will keep raising their ugly heads no matter what we do. Maybe not in such "descriptive terms" but you get the point.

Anger, fear, hatred, revenge, depression, isolation, sarcasm, rudeness, racism, arrogance, egotism...the list goes on and on. Memories or events in our lives are pushed deep into our very soul. We believe we've shoved them out of our lives or for lack of a better word, "dealt" with them, but instead, they're lurking somewhere beneath where they begin to fester.
When they do come to the surface, and they will eventually, man, do they stink! Not merely for us but for everyone who may be around. Our friends, family, even strangers. And it's how we face them at that time that matters. Will we let lose the Hulk, Spock, or Iron Man? Or will we let a much more effective and powerful hero handle the devils in the shadows?
God has conquered every known enemy to man. Psychological and physical. How? He walked this earth as one, Jesus. He knows what it's like to be angry, afraid, hated, and depressed. He's been the target of racism, rudeness, sarcasm, arrogance, and much, much worse. So whatever you're dealing with, Jesus is more powerful than the Hulk, smarter than Spock, and even quicker than Iron Man. He's the ultimate hero.
