I've never been into the whole comic book series. However, millions of kids digest this info daily. Therefore, I need to be familiar with what they are absorbing. As if TV shows, movies, magazines, apps and video games aren't enough to monitor when it comes to harmful content bombarding our kids, we must add comic books to the list.
DC comic books, one of the most popular comic books on the market today, will be releasing on March 3rd (just in time for Easter...how nice) a new comic book called Second Coming. Here is a short blurb from their webiste.
"Witness the return of Jesus Christ, as He is sent on a most holy mission by God to learn what it takes to be the true messiah of mankind by becoming roommates with the world’s favorite savior: the all-powerful super hero Sun-Man, the Last Son of Krispex! But when Christ returns to Earth, he’s shocked to discover what has become of his gospel—and now, he aims to set the record straight. "
This mocking of Christ should never be allowed and is never allowed for other religious beliefs. Here's just how backwards the message of this comic books series is.
According to creator Mark Russell, "An all-powerful superhero, named Sun-Man, has to share a two bedroom apartment with Jesus Christ. The conceit is that God was so upset with Jesus’s performance the first time he came to Earth, since he was arrested so soon and crucified shortly after, that he has kept him locked-up since then.
God then sees this superhero on Earth a few thousand years later and says “that’s what I wanted for you!” He sends Jesus down to learn from this superhero and they end up learning from each other. They learn the limitations of each other’s approach to the world and its problems."
Absolute garbage....and kids are believing this junk.
A concerned parent emailed me this week that she went to check out their website in detail. "Looking at all the comics in their library, I realized how very dark they have become. I used to read Archie Comics when I was young and comics aren't like that anymore."
I couldn't agree more.
This concerned mom went on to say, "While I was looking around I saw that they have a comic called Lucifer that was released in October 2018. They've already completed six that you can see at the site and Lucifer #3 is about to be released on January 19, 2019. There is very obviously a "rehabilitation" of Satan going on but unfortunately, most people refuse to see it." (I would like to add, many parents don't know how far off the deep end DC Comics has gone)
DC Vertigo is the publisher of this comic book series which is the adult graphic comic arm of DC Comics but read by millions of underage kids. If your kids like comic books, talk to them about the DC comics and how they are trying to lead many astray with lies that contradict scripture. This is a teaching moment for sure. Compare the comic book with the Bible and help your kids see the deception.
