IT SEEMS WITH EVERY NEW TELEVISION SEASON A SHOW THAT MOCKS JESUS CHRIST AND THE CHRISTIAN FAITH GETS A PILOT.
“Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.” 2 Peter 3:3,4 (KJV)
On a regular basis, television studios in Hollywood release pilots that either glorify the Devil, as in the show Lucifer, or mock and belittle Christians and the Bible like we see in this new show, Living Biblically, just released by CBS on February 26, 2018. And of course, the “christian” in the show who goes on a quest to ‘live biblically’ is a New Age, ecumenical, embracing all religions mashup cartoon-like character who is hyper-judgmental and attempts to enact Old Testament justice.
What you do not see in this show, and will not see in this piece of trash, is salvation through the shed blood of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins as the only way to Heaven. But if you read all the way through to the end, we will be happy to show that to you.
This season it is the CBS show ‘Living Biblically’ – a comedic take on the real life quest of a journalist to live his life “according to the Bible” for one year. From the preview scenes alone, it seems obvious that this show has no intention of representing the Bible accurately or bringing any actual serious discussion about the Christian faith. Instead it seeks cheap laughs and gags all the while mocking The Lord Jesus Christ and those who try their best to follow Him.
“CHIP CURRY IS A MODERN DAY MAN AT A CROSSROADS IN HIS LIFE, WHO DECIDES TO LIVE STRICTLY IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE BIBLE. A FILM CRITIC FOR A NEW YORK NEWSPAPER AND A SOON-TO-BE FATHER, CHIP WANTS TO BE A BETTER MAN FOLLOWING THE LOSS OF HIS BEST FRIEND. HE DECIDES TO PUT HIS SLIGHTLY OBSESSIVE TEMPERAMENT TO USE AND START LIVING HIS LIFE 100% BY THE BIBLE TO FIND DIRECTION. HIS SMART, PREGNANT WIFE, LESLIE, WHILE BOTH SKEPTICAL AND ENTERTAINED BY HER HUSBAND’S NEW PASSION, SUPPORTS HIM COMPLETELY. KNOWING HE’LL NEED SOME PRACTICAL ADVICE, CHIP FORMS A “GOD SQUAD” WITH FATHER GENE, A CATHOLIC PRIEST WHO HELPS CHIP TRANSLATE THE RULES OF THE BIBLE TO A MODERN WORLD; AND FATHER GENE’S BEST FRIEND, EASYGOING RABBI GIL ABLEMAN, WHO RESPECTS CHIP’S CHUTZPAH AND IS GLAD TO SERVE AS A SOUNDING BOARD WHEN THEY MEET AT THEIR LOCAL BAR.
AT CHIP’S NEWSPAPER, HE FINDS SUPPORT FROM HIS NO-NONSENSE BOSS, MS. MEADOWS, WHO KNOWS CHIP’S SELF-PENNED STORY WILL SELL NEWSPAPERS, AND HIS CO-WORKER AND FRIEND, VINCE, WHO IS QUICK WITH A REALITY CHECK AND LIKES TO WIND CHIP UP FOR HIS OWN AMUSEMENT. AS HE BEGINS HIS SINCERE SPIRITUAL JOURNEY TOWARD A MORE MORAL LIFE WITH THE HELP OF HIS WIFE AND FRIENDS, CHIP WONDERS IF HE’LL BE ABLE TO TAKE A PAGE – OR EVERY PAGE – OUT OF THE GOOD BOOK, AND IF THE EFFECT WILL BE OF BIBLICAL PROPORTIONS.” (SOURCE).
From the preview clips alone, the show seems intent on turning the lead character Chip into a walking, breathing negative Christian stereotype. He is judgmental, hyper-critical and even violent, because “the Bible says so.” This attempt to highlight the view of the Old Testament revealing a God who is harsh, violent and lacking compassion is a common argument for critics of the Christian faith. Living Biblically seeks to make this argument in a more subversive manner by having its lead act out these negative traits all in the name of seeking to live a righteous, holy “Biblical lifestyle.”
When Chip seeks counsel from a Roman Catholic priest and tells him of his plan, the priest laughs in his face – clearly mocking the fact that anyone would take the Bible literally.
“People need to start talking about religion again,” producer Patrick Walsh said. “I don’t buy the idea that we live in a ‘godless society.’ Eighty-four percent of the world aligns themselves with religion, and 9 out of 10 people believe in God, yet religion is never discussed because everyone is too scared to offend. In talking about it, you can erase so many misconceptions about it on either side.” source
JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY WAY TO HEAVEN AND TO HAVE FORGIVENESS OF YOUR SIN DEBT, EVERY OTHER WAY IS 100% WRONG
The anti-Christian clowns in Hollywood will never, ever give you the truth about the Bible, salvation or Jesus Christ. But we here at NTEB exist to do just that. Want to know how to become born again, and have a home in Heaven? Here it is, share it with a friend.
