Jesus, Tebow, and Saturday Night Live

Just when I thought the excuse for a comedy show, SNL, couldn’t sink any lower, it has. Their feeble attempt at humor through the Tim Tebow bashing sketch effectively places the show in the trash can as never before. When word leaked out ahead of time of the sketch, the first thought that came to mind for sane thinking people is that they would not be able to do the sketch…..because it would take a man to play the part of Tim Tebow and the comedy troupe of SNL is lacking when it comes to real men.

Then, there is the blasphemy issue. Jesus was mocked and ridiculed. There was nothing funny about the portrayal. I use the word blasphemy because Jesus is God in the flesh, not just a prophet or representative of God. Therefore it was not funny, but extremely offensive. Even non-Christians should be offended by this unfunny skit, out of respect for Christianity. If nothing else, it validates Christianity, as one more attempt in a long series of attacks by Hollyweird and the world on Christ, Christians, and Christianity. Remember the words of Jesus in John 15:18 “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.”

Also, notice the positive validation of Mormonism given by the actor in his attempt to play the part of Jesus. He said, and I paraphrase, “All that stuff about Mormonism; it’s true.” Their promotion of Mormonism is consistent with their hatred of Jesus and Christianity. Mormonism denies the deity of Jesus and eternal salvation by grace exclusively through faith in the finished work of Jesus on the cross and His resurrection. It is not surprising SNL would promote Mormonism, after trashing Christianity.

Now I am waiting. I am waiting for the SNL episode where they mock Islam and Mohammed. Yeah, right! SNL doesn’t have the guts, nor the desire to make fun of that darling religion which is protected by their siblings in the news media. And even if some of the cast and writers were to begin such an undertaking, the plug would be pulled because you don’t touch Mohammed, but it’s open season on Christ every day. So go ahead SNL. I double dog dare you. I’ll be holding my breath.
