Mark Burnett

The Real Devil

Is Messing with 'The Bible'

There's a swirl that the devil character in "The Bible" TV show is a thinly veiled President Obama ... and Mark Burnett tells TMZ, it's all the devil's doing ...THE REAL DEVIL.

Burnett -- a deeply religious man -- tells TMZ ... he believes there is a devil on earth.  Burnett says the devil has stirred the pot and created a false likeness between Obama and the TV devil.

Why, you ask, would the real devil care about a TV show?  Fact is ... the show is HUGELY popular and is having a big impact on viewers.  Burnett notes the show last night featured a face-to-face meeting between Jesus and the devil ... BUT it's not the first time the TV devil has appeared on the show.  The TV devil appeared in the Garden of Eden scene awhile back and no one said anything.

Burnett believes the real devil is scared that Jesus has now entered the picture and is trying to distract from Jesus' message by creating a false story.

Burnett says, "What could be more annoying to Satan than talking about Jesus?" 

Burnett is confident the real devil's plan of distraction will not work, saying, "We believe in the light."

I heard them talking about this show on a radio show this morning. They were just talking about why it is so popular and that everyone likes it even if they aren't Christian or interested in religion. They said it is like Passion of the Christ.


They didn't say anything about the devil looking like Obama. I like the Jesus of Nazareth version better I think. The people in it looked like real Jews. They had a middle eastern look to them and they looked very rough and rugged.


All I saw of this show was Jesus lying on the ground with a snake bothering him. He didn't look like such a tough guy. Then in another scene he looks like an annoyed hipster. This is not my idea of a good portrayal.


Another very cool movie about the Christ is The Gospel According to Matthew. It is in Italian with English subtitles. It really made Jesus look like a man of the people.

Nothing else was on so I watched. After I seen how Mary and Joseph and Jesus was portrayed as white. I turned the channel. What is it with this inferiority order complex white men have. It's 2013, In that part of the world we now by now Jesus wasn't a pale face.

This guy and his wife are really creepy. They were on the View last week and she sat there like a mute robot for most of the interview, while he yapped off over and over about how she really IS the REAL MONICA from Touched by an Angel. Just all around creepy and wierd.

The bible is nothing more than fantasy stories and myths used to control numbers of people. There is no god or devil.

Funny how Libs always want to label anyone who believes in God and the Bible "mentally ill", yet they never utter a negative word about Islam, a religion in which women are property and practitioners routinely cut off the heads of living human beings in the name of Allah. Nothing mentally ill about THAT behavior, now is there?
