Human beings have lost the sight of Godly things and it seems we are no more bothered by who God is. Hence, we find it easy to mock and blaspheme Him, to serve our own passions and to please the world. Thanks to the modern world where everyone wants to hear what pleases their ears and see what impresses their worldly lusts and passions. What we haven’t realized is that the devil has taken over the world and we are going to die in deception if we can’t stand up and fight the devil with the weapons God has given us. One of the sectors which the devil is finding easy to deceive the world is through the entertainment industry.
Actors and musicians mock and blaspheme God’s name everyday not forgetting the latest graphic scene showing Jesus Christ having sex with a married woman the night of the last supper. The scene is part of AMC’s “Preacher” latest episode and has left many people especially Christians extremely upset and offended with the show. The AMC show is based on a famous cult comic book about a modern-day preacher who is losing his faith in God and experiencing many demonic creatures and monsters. However, what has left many people offended and angry are the opening scenes of the drama.
The two characters are depicted in silhouette in their varied sexual positions, talking explicitly and otherwise discussing about what’s taking place in the scene. The Jesus character later tells the woman to keep their encounter confidential before telling her that he must leave to do something for his father, referring to the Last supper and his crucifixion. “Depicting Jesus in a grotesque sex scene is an assault on the sensibilities of all Christians, as well as people of good will who are not Christians,” Catholic League President Bill Donohue in a statement said. “We have been treated to this kind of fare from some pay-per-view channels, but we are not accustomed to AMC getting into the mud. If this is a signal of what it aspires to become, we will rally Christians against it.”
The second episode of the same drama portrays the main character, Jesse Custer’s search for God. This comprises of his experience with the Grail, an organization founded by the Apostle Thaddeus, responsible for protecting Christ’s earthly bloodline which began when Jesus impregnated the woman the night before his crucifixion. The episode proceeds on to further graphic blasphemy, introduced with the Custer character enquiring from the pope and the archbishop of Canterbury if they knew where God was.
According to the scene’s review, the pope’s answer is that God had already given up on man and has created a new species which the pope claims he doesn’t know. But he advices Custer that “the boy” later referred to as the “Messiah” knows. Later, kneeling before “the Messiah”, the Custer character asks if he is on the right path in finding God. Shockingly, “the Messiah” urinates on him. “The Messiah” is then revealed to be a mentally disabled man named HumberDoo, resulting from inbreeding conducted to keep Jesus’ bloodline pure in preparation for the end of the world. “The latest episode featured a subject so embarrassingly gross that I’m shocked I got through the entire episode without slamming my head against a wall.” Wrote News Buster’s Lindsay Kornick.
After giving some information about the sex scene, she termed it “so, so, so wrong,” and later branded its writers “depraved.” On the contrary, the co-producer Seth Rogan wasn’t troubled by the turnout of events and in fact he considered it a god thing in promoting the show. He went further to tweet that, “If this isn’t a good endorsement of “Preacher”, I don’t know what is. He had also previously confessed on twitter before the episode’s airing that he was shocked when AMC permitted him to go that far, saying, “Tonight’s episode of “Preacher” has some stuff I’ve been excited to bring to life for years and I’m SHOCKED they let us do it. Please watch.
A report from Catholic Online said, “The scene is offensive to all pious people, and is unworthy of AMC, or television.” But again we are left wondering, why didn’t the producer choose to depict Mohammed in the sexually explicit scene instead of Jesus. So we can see beyond reasonable doubt how evil Hollywood has become and everyone is enjoying the blasphemous shows. This is so depraving and no upright Christian should support it.
Are we losing the race to eternity? Has the devil already won the battle?
Have you taken your stand? Will you defend God? Or you have joined those who are mocking him?
