Dr. Richard Land: Fox TV's 'Lucifer' Show 'Blasphemous'

By    |   Tuesday, 09 June 2015 06:57 PM

Christians are up in arms about the Fox TV program "Lucifer" because "it's obscene, it's blasphemous," Dr. Richard Land of the Southern Evangelical Seminary told Newsmax TV on Tuesday.

"Jesus said that the Devil was a roaring lion that walks around seeking whom he may devour," Land, president of the North Carolina-based Christian university, told "Newsmax Prime" host J.D. Hayworth. "He's able to disguise himself into an angel of light that hides the darkness and the evil within."

Fox has said that the program, which depicts the Devil living in Los Angeles, will be on its 2016 schedule. A preview of the pilot can be seen online.

"Lucifer" is opposed by such groups as the American Family Association and One Million Moms.

"He hates us, he hates us, and he hates God — and to portray him as some kind of romantic figure is not only tragic, it's wicked, and it just proves the truth of the Bible," Land said of Satan.

"The Bible says that he's the god of this age and the prince of the power of the air, which means that the Devil has some input into all worldly philosophy and all worldly activity."
