Wreck It Ralph is just fed up with being the “bad” guy, so he finally decides to go to “bad guy counseling”. There Zangief teaches him to accept his bad guy status and he is counseled by the ghost from Pac-man. The ghost teaches him that you can’t change who you are. Finally, he agrees to the bad guy affirmation:
“I am bad and that’s good, I will never be good and that’s not bad, there is no one I rather be than me.”
This is what happens when you are counseled by a ghost or demons. Satan wants you to believe that Jesus doesn’t have the power to change you and you must accept sin.
This is not enough for Ralph; he wants to be a good guy and sets out on a quest to get a medal. He believes with this medal, everyone will accept him and he will finally be a good guy. So many Christians today are like this – trying to get medals, trying to do good works to attain God’s love and acceptance.
On his journey, Ralph finally meets a little girl that loves him even though he is a bad guy. The movie closes with an awesome statement:
“It turns out I don’t need a medal to be a good guy because if that little girl likes me, how bad could it be?”
What an awesome thing to find your identity in the love of Jesus Christ; because He loves me, I am valuable. He looked at us and saw something of worth. Why not discover true unconditional love in the person of Jesus Christ and be set free from religion. Free to love because you have been loved by Jesus. You don’t have to accept being a bad guy or pursue medals to be good. Jesus loves you so much that He will make you born again and give you a “new you” and a new nature that naturally loves.
“It turns out I don’t need a medal to be a good guy, because if He loves me, how bad could it be?”
