Twin Peaks’ Spiritual Warfare

Twin Peaks’ Spiritual Warfare

Because I’m a nerd who writes things on the internet, I am legally required to write something about Twin Peaks.

So I did. For ThinkChristian, “Twin Peaks’ Spiritual Warfare.” Here’s a little bit of it!

Given Lynch’s signature use of dream logic, it’s neither useful nor satisfying to attempt a coherent statement about the metaphysics of Twin Peaks. The series works on an intuitive level. As I watch, I’m reminded of the warnings made by the first apostles against giving “a foothold” to the devil, who “prowls around like a roaring lion.” Paul develops this notion in 2 Corinthians 10, which teaches the church to use weapons that are spiritual, not worldly. The former, he explains, begins with one’s mental life, and he urges readers to “take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”
