Why THE BIBLE Mini-Series Is Nauseating (or What I Learned Watching South Park)

South ParkOne of the most insightful episodes of Comedy Central’s animated television series, South Park, was an episode entitled “Christian Rock Hard.”

In it Cartman and the boys decide to start a Christian rock band because they think they can dupe Christians into buying their music.

Kyle: I think our band better buy a whole bunch of music CDs to listen to for inspiration.

Cartman: [stops] Inspiration? Wait a minute, [turns right and walks away from them] that’s it. Inspiration, you guys. Don’t you see?

Stan: See what?

Cartman: [turns around] Our band should play Christian rock! [beams with pride]

Kyle: Christian rock?!

Cartman: [races back to the band] Think about it! It’s the easiest crappiest music in the world, right? If we just play songs about how much we love Jesus, all the Christians will buy our crap!

Kyle: That’s a %$#@! great idea, Cartman!

Cartman: [protests, takes a step towards Kyle] It worked for Creed!

Stan: I don’t wanna be in a stupid Christian rock band!

Cartman: [steps towards Stan] You just start that way, Stan, then you cross over. It’s genius!

Christians used to be known for producing great art and classic literature, now we’re so afraid of the evils of the culture at large we’ve created a Christian subculture where we buy and sell sub-par Jesus junk. Purged of bad language and suggestive dress, we’ve insulated ourselves from the non-Christian culture at large. Occasionally smart executives will use this against us.

“Christian” has become a corporate marketing niche…

  • We have Christian bookstores, Christian television stations, and Christian websites.
  • Those who are curious can flip through a Christian best seller, thumb through a multitude of Christian magazines, or sit back and enjoy a blockbuster Christian motion picture.
  • One can quickly find Christian solutions for any and every problem a bewildered American faces—there are Christian exercise videos, and Christian weight-loss programs.
  • And now, thank goodness, even Christian vitamins.

The Bible History Channel

I’ll never forget walking out of the movie theater after seeing Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ” and saying to another staff member, “That was the biggest evangelical hype since Y2K. We were duped.”

And then the hype for The Bible mini-series on The History Channel started flooding my inbox.

The Bible will provide the church with the greatest opportunity for outreach and discipleship since the Passion of the Christ. – Scott Evans, President and C.E.O., Outreach, Inc.

Oh geez, I thought. Surely the church will see through this.

No such luck.

Since debuting March 3, 2013, THE BIBLE has been seen by more than 68 million people, and according to producer Mark Burnett, “The most-read book of all time is the most-watched TV event of our time!”

Please. Jesus. For. The. Love. Of. God. No.

Fortunately most Christians were spared the cheesy pre-marketing to pastors to get the Christians in their churches to watch the show.

  • The Christian marketing tie-ins.
  • The appearances by Mark Burnett and Roma Downey in megachurches to promote the film.
  • The email blasts.
  • The ads in periodicals targeting church leaders.
  • The pre-done Bible study materials and sermon series.
  • And finally the Rick Warren endorsement.

Rick WarrenAh, yes, the ever-coveted Rick Warren endorsement, virtually ensuring every white suburban congregation in America would not only hear about the series, but also view it as the single greatest evangelistic opportunity of the 21st century.

I believe the church has been waiting for an outreach tool like The Bible. – Rick Warren

Rick. Please. Tell. Me. They. Forced. You. To. Write. That. Under. Threat. Of Bamboo. Under. The. Fingernails. Torture.

Is The Bible mini-series bad because it’s teaching the Bible? Of course not.

It’s bad because, well, it’s just bad television. Period. Mediocre acting following a jumbled plot filled with a Scottish talking Noah and Ninja assassin angels saving Lot and destroying Sodom.

As Madeleine L’Engle once observed, “Much so-called religious art is in fact bad art, and therefore bad religion.”

Or as the boys from South Park would say, “Think about it! It’s the easiest crappiest television in the world, right? …All the Christians will buy our crap!”

Am I wrong?

    Please don’t spread that “Y2K was all hype” garbage. I was there, in the trenches. It was totally real. My employers found and fixed 800 high severity problems that would have damaged our customer accounts. We had industry newsletters that detailed the serious bugs that were found and fixed in power plants, refineries, banks, hospitals, and on and on.

    Between 1995 and 1999, the IT industry spent an estimated extra $1 Trillion dollars worldwide, and people like me put in thousands of hours of overtime. AND WE SUCCEEDED!

    How about a little credit, instead of mockery?

    Having left evangelical Christianity behind me a long time ago I sometimes look back on the culture I lived in with other friends who left, and, damn, what a sad, strange world. I’m glad to see someone still in that world capable of pointing out things that are easily obvious to outsiders like the creators of South Park (and most others). Just to clarify, I’m not insulting anyone’s beliefs here. Just the insular bubble culture. If you are ever going to push against the rising swell of non-belief in the US, you’re going to have to be able to take an honest look at your own culture like the author does here.
    Best wishes.

    I agree with what you said in your opening remarks and in your reply to comment. The ‘message’ was watered down. It was also very humanistic. I was particularly troubled by the portrayal of King David…arrogant, prideful, trying to bargain with God. There are already too many people who think they just have to do enough good to appease God. It is NOT about changing the world…it is about yielding our lives to God so that He can change us into vessels for His use.

  • kimberly melton

    i didn’t find the acting that bad or the plot convoluted. it told bible stories which is what most people are familiar with, sunday school being the only bible they get. and though it missed some marks i would have liked to have seen better hit, i thought that over all it did better than most hollywood attempts at biblical rendidtion

    Perhaps there are mediocre artists who produce for the Evangelical subculture because their art is not considered good enough for the mainstream. Then perhaps there are sincere believers who are just doing the best they can. Then perhaps there are writers who paint both groups with the worst imaginable stereotypes in order to sensationalize their material and sell books. God knows our hearts. I trust that He will be merciful to all of us who do what we must do with a penitent heart.

    Sarah, I can assure you I’m not jealous of this TV series. Channing Tatum six-pack abs jealousy, yes. Cheesy TV, uh, no. The one thing we agree on is there are some AMAZING Christian artists coming up. Here’s one I was just listening to today. http://m.reverbnation.com/artist/robharrisnashville

    So many Christians are living a false image of Christianity, should we condemn acting by secular people proclaiming the Bible? I am disappointed in the Bible mini-series because it did not stay true to the Bible; but at least it may lead people to read the Bible.

    We are in the time of Unleavened Bread following the Passover; Jesus said, beware the leaven of the Pharisees. Jesus said to live by every word out of the mouth of God; that is not Christianity. ( Matthew 4:4) Notice Luke 16:31 Jesus said, “If they believe not Moses and the Prophets, neither will they be convinced though one rise from the dead.” It is time to read the Bible as written in the older versions, without commentaries, and see if you can find your church in it. BibleGateway.com has many translations and languages. Exodus 20 & Leviticus 23 & Deuteronomy 4:2 & Leviticus 23 and 26.

  • Sarah

    Man, do you sound jealous. To use SP as your “inspiration lead in” to this piece I find insulting and out of line. In my opinion some of the best music and lyrics produced today are coming from some very talented “Christian music artists.”
    As to the Bible movie, the producers seemed sincere in their efforts and motivation for making the movie. Do you know otherwise? If you have the ability to produce something better, than do it. There’s always room for improvement. Sadly, many Christians find it necessary to tear down other Christians. For what purpose?

    Thanks for sharing this Matt. Excellent observations.

  • http://www.facebook.com/msteinruck Matt Steinruck

    Had a friend forward me this link.
    As someone who’s career is centered around cultivating arts and media to raise the visuality of God’s Word in today’s rapidly-changing culture, this post piqued my curiosity. Particularly since we’ve worked closely with Mark and Roma personally to promote their miniseries within our networks….

    Anyway, here was my reply to my friend, and I’ve decided to share it here, FWIW.

    I can see what Brian’s doing and where he’s coming from, but it’s really like cutting off your nose to spite your face. Throwing the baby out with the bath water. And other really old cliches.

    The comment thread is good, and many people seem to indicate the same thing: “come on, really, dude? Maybe a little overboard.”

    I’m all for good art, and pushing to boundaries, and avoiding hype and stuff.

    And, while this might not be the most groundbreaking thing to come along, there is a lot of good that can be derived, not the least of which is that it’s gotten nearly 70 million people talking about the Bible.

    In a survey we did directly related to this that was used on CBS news, 79% of Americans were aware of the series, 42% had seen it, and 69% had gained a more positive view of the Bible as a result. So… that’s something.

    Bottom line for me, I appreciate his desire to sharpen the awareness of Christians to be better, more critical, produce better stuff, and engage with the world in cutting-edge ways. But, there are a lot better ways to say that, IMHO, and to lead by example more than cutting off at the knees something that has some degree of merit.

    Like one of his congregants said, they now feel badly for having watched it. How about providing them a sense of critical caution, and engaging them in conversation about what good things they drew from it?

    Finally: I dont think the comparison between South Park and The Bible is a good one.

    To Cartman’s credit, i think there’s a ton of cheesy Christian Jesus crap out there in a completely niche market that serves to bring the overall value of our faith down and keep us isolated from the world.

    But when one of the top TV producers in some of the most secular markets steps out, shares his faith and talents to produce what is truly an immense effort which has engaged not just the Christian market, but major media outlets …. I think it stands in a different category than your Average Christian Band and Jesus bobbleheads.

    That’s my take.

    Watered down and shortened yes, but I pray and have hope out of millions watching (saved or potentially) that as the Word promises; it will not come back null and void and is powerful enough to accomplish intervention in some form.

    There are some bibles with watered down translations & there are some watered down preachers, but if a seed is planted it is left to our Holy Spirit to get the increase..

  • JH

    Brian is writing provocative copy to “market” his blog to a Christian audience…. sounds a lot like what the the producers for the Bible mini series did… love the irony of this. And, now I’m intrigued enough to watch the tv show. Nah – I’ve wasted enough time now as it is. Your sarcasm and critical perspective is entertaining.

    You know, I think you’re right. I didn’t make the prodigal son connection. But he very clearly functioned as that in this last episode. Ugh. Gonna miss that character.

    I actually LOVED Merle (well – not until he came to the prison and showed himself to me more logical than Rick)! Especially at the end when he let Michonne go. I think you could see that he knew the error of his ways and was determined to make it right.

    Between that and when, several episodes earlier, Herschel was quoting scripture to him and Merle finished it (with a flippant “Woodbury had a great library” comment)?

    (sniff) TWD does have many religious undertones…Merle had potential to be The Prodigal Son

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=749525558 Mindi Cherry

    Love this!

    I will say that we are DVR’ing the series and watching it with our 2 boys (the 6-year old is really to young to see the violence, IMO) for 1 reason – before we switched to solely attending CCV about 18 months ago and they were attending CCD at our old church, they never really got much info about the Bible stories. After 18 months of Valley Kids and Impact, they know so much more about the Bible than they ever learned in CCD, but I thought watching the series might give them a “visual” to refer to when they are learning on Sundays at CCV.

    That being said – the acting is horrible and I found myself grabbing my iPad to search my Bible app (thanks to that “There’s An App For That” series that you did) to see if I missed the part about the ninjas in Sodom :-)

    But you hit the nail on the head – this is all about marketing to Christians…and it is sad. I don’t know any non-Christians that are watching it.

    Why do I think that, at some point in the next month or so, some publisher or online retailer will have a PR campaign “You saw the TV series – now read The Book! Get the Bible for 40% Off!”

    one of these days, I want to hear your thoughts on Veggie Tales. We actually loved them in my house and I will still find myself grabbing the Netflix remote to watch A Snoodles Tale even if the kids are at school and I need a morale boost :)

    And you didn’t ask, but before I hit publish on this post, I checked a few comments and see that you are NOT actually a South Park fan. I am (although I think their more recent stuff is crossing the line, but I am glad to see that my pastor isn’t), but you would probably get a kick out of these episodes (especially the one about Mormons): http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/11/17/top-10-south-park-episode_n_824696.html

    I would not agree that it is flawed comparison. It is the same Lord. The same Gospel. The same Holy Spirit. The difference is the accepting the pure Word and obeying it. We have such a skewed idea of what the function of the Church is that is doesn’t even resemble what the Lord established. In other countries, they accept and obey. Often, not always, but often, we teach a mental ascension rather that a practical relationship with a real God.

    Thanks Patty. I’m sure it has, and will continue to help lots of people seek God, despite its shortcomings. And if that happens, that’s a huge credit to the Holy Spirit. He can use bumbling people like me, and others, and cheesy movies and the like to do amazing things.

  • http://www.facebook.com/rlordtarries Patty Williams-Utzurrum

    It has been very difficult for my husband and I to sit through the episodes and not be critical and judgemental of it – we are trying hard to be gracious. There is no need to “change” or tweak the stories for more dramatic effect like they have tried to do. The Bible as it is, is totally action packed and filled with sex and all of the other stuff that society is interested in or that “intrigues” us, but they are losing the message of Grace. They have changed, left out and added very important words and structure of so many of the stories that I believe the meaning has been lost which God warns us of. Even the corney Christian movies like The Book of Ruth, or Ester or the Jesus film or so many of the others that are shown on the GMC etc are trueer to the real stories in the Bible than this mini-series. I can’t imagine how I would respond if I was a non-believer to this movie – I do hope it is turning non-believers to Christ. We belonged to Saddleback and got raised up there for 10yrs before moving to Oregon and we were pretty bummed that they went “so hollywood” with this movie. We still love our old church but the church does have this downfall of doing things like this. But again, we only hope that it will bring Glory to God in one way or another – God can use it for good! I hope it is a blessing for all who are involved and not a curse ~

    Comparing churches in America to churches in Africa is a flawed comparison. It’s like comparing the church today to the church 100 years ago. Of course the church is popular in cultures where there is so much need, little else to rely on and hope is in short supply. In America today, folks are brainwashed to think the government is going to be the answer to their hope and the various media forms keep us entertained 24/7. Not negating the strides being made in other countries, but pointing out the problems in comparisons.

  • Dan Lawlis

    Never look a gift horse in the mouth. With all the Jersey Shore garbage type shows, we should be delighted for anything that can push people in the right direction, and pull them from their immoral entertainment.

    I will agree with you that Christian music needs to be more creative, and I’ve seen signs of that improving.

    Overall I’ve found the bible TV series very gripping and very watchable. My one criticism would be it could have done without a few of the explicit scenes of gore. Younger kids should not really be watching this.

  • http://www.facebook.com/sean.healy.146 Sean Healy

    I’m not sure a studied pastor has the right perspective to be a TV critic. I get that the mass media puts out a ton of junk and the so called “Christian” media does as well. The show has flaws but for my friends who are new to church and new to the faith, they have found the show very helpful. It helps them to ask questions and actually open their newly acquired bible to see what the text says. It prompts me to do the same so I can be prepared for the avalanche of questions my friends will have. Your post concludes that “its just bad television”. This may be a true statement but it offers no alternative. What is a Christ follower to do with bad television? Not watch I guess but every experience is an opportunity to learn something.

  • http://www.BrianJones.com/ Brian Jones

    Of course not. Good point.

  • Phil Vaughan

    Of course some followers of Jesus easily confuse critical thinking with simply being critical. Lots of people enjoy “bad TV”, “horrible writing” and “ugly art” every day — and not just of the ‘christian” variety. I don’t think you are saying that someone should cast a critical eye at something because it’s christian…right?

  • http://www.facebook.com/Scottmichaelwhitley Scott Michael Whitley

    Because it is watered down Christianity. Unfortunately that is the status of much of the “Church” culture in America. More on enterainment less on the meat. It is easy to see the contrast when you look at the difference in the Church in America and the Church in say, Africa or Asia or the Middle East. The power of God is moving because the Church is operating in it. True evangelism in everyday lives and seeing conversions by the thousands. Here we try to lure the lost with media and advertising Jesus like a commodity. The world cries out for the revealing of the sons of God. This “Stuff” like this waters down the Word to not offend, takes out the substance and markets it. The Christians here in America eat it up because it requires nothing of you.

    Wow, this seems just a bit over the top. Lambasting “The Bible” as mediocre art not even worth being produced on the grounds of a South Park episode? Than using quotes about bad art being bad religion? As US Christians our enemy isn’t bad art, our enemy is apathy. Is there bad Christian art? Lot’s of it. But as others have pointed out, if this moves people to action and interest than why be so incredibly judgmental of it? 68+ million people are talking about the Bible in an accurate and relevant way. I just fail to see how in the world this could be a such a bad thing.

    There’s definitely been worse.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=622370741 Tina Kachmar

    I’m pretty sure that’s the goal of this mini series as well, except they are focused on getting non-Christians to think about what Christ did for them. I agree with Kim, I think you are deterring the focus audience from learning about just that. If it saves one person, they will learn the whole story of the Bible anyway.

    I have not watched any of the Bible miniseries yet, but I had such high hopes for it. I have not heard good things. I had hoped it might be an informative, historical piece of work.

    I am in total agreement of the rest of the post. I have been under the “spell” of Christian subculture for awhile, fully convinced that the music and products I was being sold were beautiful, God inspired, and things I needed to be a real Christian. Recently I’ve come to see them as the marketing ploys that (most of) it is. And I gotta say, I’m pissed. And I love that episode of South Park, by the way.

  • Larry Marshall

    I’m thinking 10 hours of prime time TV to highlight some major themes of the greatest story ever told is worth leveraging. If they didn’t skip any stories or had Spielberg and tons of CGI…it would take 50 hours and more $ than they had. Like any of these things, Passion of the Christ et al, it gets God in the conversation. I’ll take it. I confess there has been some awful stuff produced in the name of Christian art and entertainment, like the Left Behind movies…and most Newsboys releases which are usually covers of songs that other people wrote and recorded first. I admit to watching and listening to most that comes down the pipe. Though this History Channel effort isn’t perfect and there are moments of cheese, I think there is more good here to be leveraged than the usual fare. I think you might be a bit jaded by the Outreach Magazine et al stuff, endorsements, etc. wonder if they all stayed out of it would you see it any different.

  • http://www.facebook.com/timeogle Tim Ogle

    Brian, I get it. I understand what you are saying and even agree on some levels. Christians flock to consumer pitched stuff.

    My family and I have enjoyed watching the series. Does it leave a lot to be desired? Of course.

    Do I think it’s the greatest Christian marketing and outreach tool history has ever seen? Not at all.

    In contrast, Walking Dead contained a full reading of Psalm 91 on Sunday night.

    I may be skeptical and critical of the way The Bible is being produced and used in our media, film and television. However, it’s awfully interesting the ways it is showing up and the attention it is drawing.

  • http://www.facebook.com/darenandkristi Daren Mitchell

    i don’t think you’re wrong on the premise. The Bible as a tv show is full of errors and crappy acting. i was really disappointed with the scene of Jesus in the temple court during the Passover week. in the Gospel accounts he’s a bad*** but in the tv show he’s barely strong enough to tip over a table or he’s very timid about it…it sucked!
    but anyway…i do think the Passion of the Christ has it’s merits. We watch it with the family from time to time, to remind us of what it very well could’ve looked like for Jesus to pick up his cross, because as His followers we are to do the same.
    For that reason i believe Mel’s movie deserves some cred.

  • Maria Feuerstein

    In a world full of evil, I wouldn’t be critical of any method in which the message of Jesus gets out. There’s a difference between being analytical vs. critical and this article is just plain mean. Not something I’d expect from a fellow Christian.
