In just the latest of attacks on The Lord Jesus Christ and the Christian faith, comedian Sarah Silverman used a skit from her newest TV show to portray Jesus Christ as a profanity spewing pansexual seeking to ban crucifixions. Silverman who has spent much of her career mocking, attacking and ridiculing Christianity not only demonstrated the current state of TV when it comes to its treatment of the Christian faith but also how far society is falling from any fear of God at all.
According to reports:
“Comedian Sarah Silverman, who has made a career out of mocking religion, took her crass humor to another level last week with an Election Day skit involving a cursing “Jesus” who is promiscuous.
The skit, which appeared on Hulu’s I Love You America, shows Silverman in a line on Election Day when she spots “Jesus” (played by Fred Armisen) at the front and calls out his name. Newsbusters first reported about the controversy.
“Sarah, my child, how are you?” she asks.
“I’m great, how are you?” he responds.
The discussion quickly devolves into a discussion of his genitalia – which he happily talks about – before the conversion turns to politics.
“I don’t want to say who I’m voting for,” he says.
Silverman asks him which issues are most important to him.
“I just want a law that says you can’t force your kid to die publicly by bleeding to death on a cross,” he says.
The discussion then turns back to sex, with Silverman saying she wished he wasn’t celibate.
“I’m essentially pansexual,” he says, before adding that he had “sex” with an oak tree recently.
When Silverman lets an f-bomb slip, he curses, too, saying, “I curse all the time. F— f— f—. D–. P–. H–, B—-. S—.” (source).
Sarah Silverman’s History of Blasphemy
Silverman has devoted much of her comedic efforts ridiculing Christianity. Here is just a portion:
- In 2015, on Christmas Day she sent out a tweet stating: “Merry Christmas! Jesus was gender fluid!”
- She filmed a skit featuring herself in bed with an actor portraying Jesus discussing abortion rights.
- One of her first major comedy shows was called “Jesus Is Magic” in which she made stated Jesus was “magic” because He turned water into wine.
- In 2007 she was depicted having sexual relations with God on her Comedy Central Show.
Webster’s 1828 dictionary (based on the English of the King James Bible) defines blasphemy as:
“An indignity offered to God by words or writing; reproachful, contemptuous or irreverent words uttered impiously against Jehovah.
Blasphemy is an injury offered to God, by denying that which is due and belonging to him, or attributing to him that which is not agreeable to his nature.” (source).
The Bible warns: “Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.” (Exodus 20:7). Denigrating the Name of God is a serious offense in the Bible:
“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.” – Galatians 6:7-8
And yet, Silverman has relentlessly attacked God in her comedy skits and shows. Why? The Bible is clear that the farther someone moves from God, the more their anger and animosity towards The Lord grows:
“For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.” – Romans 8:5-7.
All people are born with a corrupted, sinful nature as a result of the first sin in the Garden of Eden. And thus, we are “carnally minded” focused on satisfying the sinful desires of our hearts that we all have. But in addition to wanting to sin – the carnal mind is at “enmity” or at war, with God. So, the problem for an unbeliever like Silverman is not that she does not believe in God – but that she hates God. Hence her spending so much time attacking, mocking and challenging a God she claims does not exist and a faith she says is “magic.”
An Outspoken Support of Murder In The Womb
To no surprise, much of Silverman’s public anger towards Christianity centers around abortion. She is an ardent supporter of Planned Parenthood – the abortion corporation Beginning And End has repeatedly detailed for its racist history, encouraging minors to have abortions and having workers on video encouraging the cover up of statutory rape. At a pro-abortion telethon Silverman berated laws that seek to prevent corporations from using the body parts of aborted children for commercial use. In response the comedian said: “If anything has ever made me want to eat an aborted fetus, it’s this law.” (source).
In response to laws that seek to provide funerals for babies killed in the womb she stated: “F— funerals for f—aborted fetuses? I would like to speak at those funerals. He lived the way he died. He died the way he lived. The size of a sesame seed with no discerning brain function.” (source).
She’s also tweeted her support of abortions on a regular basis:
God says of those who come to belief and faith in Him and the mindset of those who willfully reject and deny Him:
“For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the Lord. But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.” – Proverbs 8:35-36
Notice the verse above does not say “all they that do not believe in me…” but rather rightly identifies the many people who hate God. And along with that becomes a love of death. The pro-abortion movement has continually linked attacking Christianity with their political movement – one stark example being when a group of pro-abortion activists shouted, “Hail Satan!” during a rally at the Texas Capitol building.
Pray For Sarah Silverman
Without a doubt, some reading this article will be incredibly angered at the brazen disrespect and blasphemy carried out by Sarah Silverman for over a decade. And that anger stems from a love for God and the defense of the Christian faith. But remember that the Bible says: “Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: Neither give place to the devil.” (Ephesians 4:26-27). The Lord Jesus Christ commands believers to pray for those who persecute Christians. Pray for Sarah Silverman and the many entertainers who use their platform to blaspheme the name of God. And pray for society to move away from viewing blasphemy as entertainment.
Silverman is a lost soul whose heart has been seared from years of rebellion and enmity at God. But that does not change the fact that the same Jesus Christ she disrespected gave His life for her, just as He did for the soldiers who mocked and attacked Him as He walked to the cross. God loves her just as He does all the lost souls in the world today. Pray she repents and receives the free forgiveness that can be found through faith in the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross, taking her punishment so she could be forgiven. If you are a Christian tune out blasphemous entertainment. And if you are not a Christian, understand that Jesus Christ predicted this would take place as the end times approached. And He gave a stern warning about how we speak to Him:
“A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.” – Matthew 12:35-37
Lord willing Sarah Silverman will repent of her words before the day she stands face to face with the real Jesus Christ.
