10 Star Wars Quotes That Are Backed by Scripture

Whether you grew up watching Star Wars or have never seen an episode in your life, everyone across several generations can share in the themes, characters and Star Wars quotes laid in the foundation of the wildly popular films. You don’t have to know a thing about the saga to know characters like Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, R2D2, and Yoda.

George Lucas has created arguably, the most successful cinematic empire of all time, and one thing I especially appreciate about the films is how closely some of the most famous Star Wars one-liners, echo scripture.

On this ‘May the fourth’ day, we recognize the Star Wars quotes that can be backed by scripture. Because sometimes the simplest statement can have a lasting impression.

Here are 10 Star Wars Quotes that are Backed by Scripture

1. “Do. Or do not. There is no try.”

In the wise words of Yoda, this small dose of tough love is the perfect quip for when someone needs an extra boost of motivation. It also echoes this verse we see in Revelation: “‘I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.” (Revelation 3:15-16)

2. “Your eyes can deceive you. Don’t trust them.”

Obi-Wan Kenobi’s voice of reason is one for pretty much any circumstance. On the more serious end of the spectrum, this short but sweet advice could be used to steer someone away from lustful desires, or false intent. On the more day-to-day end of things, this Star Wars quote echoes what my mother always said when we attended a potluck: “your eyes are bigger than your stomach.”

However you may take it, this is one of the Star Wars Quotes that, I think, 1 John 2:16 sums it up pretty nicely: “For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world.”
