A couple of years ago I posted a short video making a snide comment about the Fox network and a new show they were getting ready to release entitled, Lucifer. You can watch that video here.
The premise of the show is encapsulated in a title screen at the beginning of every episode in season one.
Rule Hell? Uh, not really, no. The Bible tells a very different story; Satan, Lucifer, has never been to Hell, and when he finally gets there, certainly won't rule it. He'll be a prisoner just like everyone else. But the Leftist writers at Fox didn't let a little thing like the Bible stop them. Instead they went full bore, denigrating everything the Bible says, committing blasphemy, taking God's Name in vain, telling an endless series of lies, and calling evil good and good evil.
During the course of the two seasons released so far we learn the following things:
In the first episode of season 2, Lucifer explains to his therapist (who thinks he's using metaphors) about his mother and father, as seen in this clip below.
The writers specifically have Lucifer claim his father and mother had sex to create the universe and all the angels. They built a house called heaven, but his mother refers to it as the Silver House. His father was “tinkering” with a project called humanity, and both of them were neglectful parents, which led to Lucifer's rebellion.
Every one of these items – and there are more – is either blasphemy, an outright lie, or a made-up fairy tale tailored to fit the show's writer's anti-biblical world view. One of those made-up fairy tales concerns a “divine” artifact on earth, in the form of a knife taken from the Angel of Death, that drives people to commit murder, but can also cut through the gates of heaven to let his mother, Amendiel, and Lucifer back into heaven.
He and his mother want revenge on his father, God, who, throughout both seasons, is consistently spoken of as the bad guy, the cause of all their problems. More blasphemy.
In season two, his police partner, Chloe, puts her reputation, and the trial of her father's murderer, on the line when she refuses to accuse Lucifer of lying. The writers go out of their way to portray her angst as she rejects taking the easy way out, but instead adamantly insists that Lucifer never lies. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the Father of Lies we're talking about!
Jesus Himself said in John 8:44 [NIV],
You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
What makes this series so powerfully misleading is the skill, talent, and style with which the actors, cameramen, writers, and directors bring it to life. From beginning to end it's smooth and polished; no B-grade production values here! This is a first class Hollywood production with beautiful sets, gorgeous women, gripping story lines, heart wrenching pathos, superb dialogue, astounding special effects, excellent musical score, brilliant cinematography, and fantastic direction.
Executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer (Top Gun, Pirates of the Caribbean, Flashdance, Remember the Titans, National Treasure, and others) has created one of the most persuasive, compelling, seductive lies I've ever seen or heard of. Anyone who doesn't know the Bible backwards and forwards (and even some who do) will be taken by in it in a heartbeat. It's that good.
Let's be clear; it's good at what it does, but evil in what it's doing.
The what it does – how it does it – are the things I just outlined. What it's doing; committing blasphemy, lying about God and the Bible, turning everything upside-down; those are absolutely evil to the core.
That America should have arrived at the day when a show such as this can be produced, renewed for a second season, then possibly renewed again for a third, is an indication of how far our country has fallen from it's once lofty origins.
Trump or no Trump, America is falling. Trump is a decent man, a decent President, but he can't pull us back from the brink. The Church could have pulled America back to solid ground if it had stood up on it's hind legs and fought for what it claimed to believe in – but it didn't.
America is made of people, and the people apparently like Lucifer.
