Simpsons Reveal Folly
The Apostle Peter said of apostasy “..there were false prophets among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of which the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. (2Peter 2:1-2)
“The Simpsons” is one of the most evil programs on television today. It is a program nobody, not even a non-Christian should want to watch, but it has had continued success since 1989, which says something about the moral and ethical condition of the United States. On February 20th 2005, the program lampooned the Episcopal Church and Christianity in general, with its program where Homer Simpson gets an online ordination from the “ee-Piscopal Church” and begins marrying male and female sodomites.
The Episcopal Church has done much harm to Christianity, even hurting evangelism in many countries because of its conduct. The producers of “The Simpsons” apparently can recognize how foolish that organization looks even though it leadership cannot. The program takes several jabs at the Episcopal Church for its “ambiguous theology and confusing moral teaching.” This is a fulfillment of the Scripture cited at the beginning of the article.
“The Simpsons” is not the first time homosexuality has been portrayed on prime time television. It used to be that even though many in the crowd producing programming were sexual perverts they knew better than to produce such programming because there was a clear Christian voice that would stand up and put them to shame. Organizations like the Episcopal Church and the members of the World Council of Churches have weakened the voice of those still faithful to the Word of God.
Today, those who stand outside Christianity: the immoral, the unbelieving, think that they have a right to criticize Christianity and even the Bible for the teaching of God’s Word. The reason they have gotten to a place of such boldness is not because they have the strength of numbers, but because those who should be proclaiming the truth in Christendom compromise it instead.
