ABC’s New TV Show “From Hell” — Really?

“From Hell” — Really?

ABC has a new TV program — “From Hell.” From the promo it seems to present people’s frustrations, pain, and misery as a form of mass entertainment. My thoughts:

* Other people’s suffering doesn’t entertain me. It breaks my heart.

* So what kind of a society is entertained by people’s troubles?

* If a Christ-follower mentions Hell, they are called narrow minded, fundamentalist, judgmental, and/or mean spirited. So why not ABC?

* Christ-followers want to share the good news that God has provided a way to avoid Hell, not to make money off of people’s Hell-like circumstances.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @
