Lucifer is Coming, DC Comics, Supernatural, Fox Show

Apparently, the idea for the show is adapted from the DC comics title The Sandman. Lucifer Morningstar, is a character in the comic book. Comic books many times use mythology as a starting point for their stories. But the Bible isn't mythology and shouldn't be treated as such.

The problem here is using biblical characters in ways that put an unbiblical spin on the characters. In Supernatural, the TV show, the devil supposedly rises from hell to earth. The problem with that notion is that biblically speaking, he hasn't been cast into hell yet. He roams the earth like a roaring lion, seeking those he can devour (Job 1:7).

In 2009, tweets about the show Supernatural, saying that Lucifer is coming caused quite an uproar. This concerned the season 5 premier. Twitter got many complaints and removed the tweet about the devil.

In the upcoming Fox show called Lucifer, the character is depicted as bored. What? The devil never bores of his evil work. He hurries along trying to do as much damage as he can, while he has time. He will never tire of lying to people and causing evil to happen, and garnering lost souls for hell.

The premise of the show undermines the truth of the Bible. It twists God's word. It is spin at its worst! The description of the show also says that he is unhappy. This is ridiculous. He is the ruler of his unholy realm. He isn't sad.

The description of the show by Fox says Lucifer felt something that alarmed him. The writer questions whether it could be compassion or sympathy. This is his response to a savage murder. Wrong.

"You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it (John 8:44)."

The Bible says the devil/Lucifer was a murderer from the beginning. So, depicting him as compassionate is a mischaracterization. It's false as Lucifer is false. It says that he is the father of lies. That sums up his role in getting this disturbing show on TV for people to gobble up like sheep to a slaughter.

Fox also says he will be charming you through your TV.

"But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ. (2 Corinthians 11:3)." The serpent, also called Lucifer charmed Eve into committing the first sin, called original sin. Fox is telling you that he is charming and that's okay. It isn't okay. Be aware of this deceit.
