Fox Tv show “Lucifer”

09 Feb

I’ve been under the weather for the past week. Which for me means I was sick and didn’t feel like working or writing or for that matter doing much of anything. Instead, I binge watched television. One of the shows that caught my attention is a new fox show called Lucifer. This show, more than any other in recent time, worries me.

The premise of this show is that Lucifer has come to Los Angeles because he has retired as the Lord of Hell. I watched this show to see what all the fuss is about. People that I have in my life are raving about it. What I saw as a former Satanist made me sick. The real purpose of this show is to put several lies about the devil in the minds of today’s generation.

The first lie is that Satan is the Lord of anything. He isn’t, he’s a fallen angel. He’s forbidden to enter heaven according to scripture and was cast down to earth where he roams until the time of his punishment is come. By watching this show you are given the impression that God himself put Satan in charge of hell and that in reality Satan is just a good guy who wants nothing but to punish the evil people.

That too is a lie. Satan isn’t good; there is no good in him. He doesn’t care about punishing bad people or, as the show said, “get justice for the good people.” No, Satan has one agenda and only one, and that is to destroy everything that God loves. Jesus himself said it best in John 10:10, “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”

This show bothers me because it is a new way of Satan getting his old lie out to a new generation. He’s using fiction to do it because fiction reaches us in places that nonfiction can’t, deep in our thoughts and feelings. Satan is not here to rest, he’s not here to become more caring. He can’t care. He is a destroyer and he want’s nothing more than to kill our chance at a meaningful relationship with God. Oh, I know I’m preaching to the choir because those that will read this blog won’t watch that show, and yet what are we doing to reach those that will watch? How do we lovingly present the TRUTH to those that are going to be reached by this cleverly disguised lie? We rant at their sin and failings. We harp on how evil the world and they are. We point out how they aren’t good little believers like we are. When in reality the only difference between Christians and the lost is our acceptance of the sacrifice Jesus made for us. Nothing else. They are us before we gave our lives to HIM.

Satan is winning the battle for the lost by appearing to care for them more than God’s own people do. Yet we prove his lie true by how we respond to their captivity. God help us.

    I agree with you. Satan was loved by God until he turned on God, thinking he was better than Him. Satan decided he wanted to destroy everything that God loves. He’s jealous of God. And evil exists more today than ever before. This t.v. show will only confuse the minds of the nonbelievers. It will just confirm their beliefs that God isn’t real and Satan’s not so bad. Horrible, horrible show for the world we live in.

      Thanks for your comment. What worries me the most isn’t the unbelievers who are buying into this but the young post modern Christians who are swallowing these lies.

    Thanks for writing this post. This is exactly why I wrote my angel series, and give the first ebook away free, in the hopes of getting out theological truth in a fictional setting. It’s been optioned for film. This show is adding to the misinformation society has regarding angels and personal salvation through our Savior’s sacrifice.

      Lisa love your angel series and waiting for the movies. Thanks for the comment. Yes the misinformation bothers me and the fact that some of the younger generation of Christians are being swayed by things like this is what worries me as a pastor and spiritual warfare teacher. As well as an author.
