Don’t you think this is very funny? That after years of trying to make Satan look like an ugly guy with horns in the wrong places, now Fox have come up with a show that ‘kind of changes that perception’.
“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” John 8:44 (KJV)
The Show seeks to change everything you ever believed about Satan. And funny that while the Christian loving America is bashing God for the high standards of morals set in the bible, now we have something else, a good guy that was close to God and one that does not really mind if we have gay marriages.
Here is the official blurb from Fox.com:
LUCIFER IS THE STORY OF THE ORIGINAL FALLEN ANGEL. BORED AND UNHAPPY AS THE LORD OF HELL, LUCIFER MORNINGSTAR HAS ABANDONED HIS THRONE AND RETIRED TO L.A., WHERE HE OWNS LUX, AN UPSCALE NIGHTCLUB. CHARMING, CHARISMATIC AND DEVILISHLY HANDSOME, LUCIFER IS ENJOYING HIS RETIREMENT, INDULGING IN A FEW OF HIS FAVORITE THINGS – WINE, WOMEN AND SONG – WHEN A BEAUTIFUL POP STAR IS BRUTALLY MURDERED OUTSIDE OF LUX. FOR THE FIRST TIME IN ROUGHLY 10 BILLION YEARS, HE FEELS SOMETHING AWAKEN DEEP WITHIN HIM AS A RESULT OF THIS MURDER. COMPASSION? SYMPATHY? THE VERY THOUGHT DISTURBS HIM – AS WELL AS HIS BEST FRIEND AND CONFIDANTE, MAZIKEEN AKA MAZE , A FIERCE DEMON IN THE FORM OF A BEAUTIFUL YOUNG WOMAN.
Devilishly handsome and charismatic. And they are marketing the show on Twitter with the hashtag #LuciferIsComing
For us Adventists, the hashtag has always been Maranatha, Christ is coming. But now this super giant of Television has put in millions of dollars in acting and marketing to come up with another version of it.
And just like everything else that God provides for us, Satan will always bring a counterfeit. The Saturday Sabbath had Sunday in place. God’s marriage had gay marriages to compete with, but today is a dawn of a new era. In 2016, we start marketing Lucifer as a good guy. Not God.
