Twisted Tuesday – Whose in Charge Here?

Today’s twisted scripture is Luke 12:4-5.

There are many that would love to twist Luke 12 to fit the bizarre view of Satan and his demons torturing non believers in hell. There are others who claim, like Joyce Meyers, that Jesus was tortured in hell by Satan and his cohorts. But it’s clear and obvious, in the text that Jesus is not referring to Satan, He’s talking about God the Father.


Why do people want to twist this scripture? Because it’s uncomfortable to tell sinners that God is sovereign. Many want their Christianity without having to seperate from the world. But friendship with the world is enmity with God. Do we so desire the approval of man that we’re willing to twist Gods Word to earn it? Please, friends, do not hide the truth from sinners. Don’t give them the impression that they need to be saved from Satan. Christ died to pay a sin debt we owed, we’re being saved from the judgement rightfully due us, by the Judge of all, God the Father. 

The cartoon view of Satan ruling hell, helped along by false teachers, is unbiblical and illogical. God created it, God is sovereign over it, God gave the keys of hell and death to His Son Jesus Christ. We need to seperate ourselves from the false teachers who refuse to tell sinners the truth. On the day of judgement no sinner will thank these people for lying to them. Love the sinner more then you love yourself, love them enough to warn them of the wrath to come. 


Sinner, your in the hands of an angry God full of justice. It is appointed once for man to die, and then judgement comes. On that day it will be too late to cry out, and the ‘hell of hell is that it’s forever’ as Spurgeon so rightly pointed out. Repent of your sins, today is the day of salvation, put your faith in Christ alone. 

As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

    1. Thanks for finding that article, brother! The clip it includes is the exact one I was eluding to. It’s always bothered me when I see the scene in Narnia where Aslan is tormented by all the creepy creatures. When I heard JM repeat the same idea it grieved me deeply. Jesus specifically said that no one takes His life, He laid it down by choice. Not to take the wrath of Satan, Satan isn’t Christ’s equal (or brother like some cults think) he is a created being. It changes the entire view of atonement, it seems harmless enough on the surface, but when you think through it logically it falls apart. Anyone who is unsaved but willing to listen can work through the issues with that train of thought and be happily on their way thinking they had disproven Christianity. When the proper perspective is given and a sinful heart realized they’re held accountable to God Himself, it’s harder to walk away.

      I should have also pointed out that Peter explains that when Jesus went to Hades it was to preach victory, not be tormented or tortured. I may have to go in and add that when I get a minute. There are so many misconceptions that I held, myself, before salvation.

  1. I really want to approve your comment but my daughter has a blog now and I have to keep it clean for her. Please, I would be so thankful if you would take the B Word out then repost this. I think this is something very important for others to read

  2. Spurgeon also said Cristina that Jesus was an Angel which Scripture refutes, many have got it wrong because they Trust in their own or in others fleshy Understanding instead of asking for God’s Wisdom and Empowering which none of us were Born with as confirmed on the link below with Scripture…

    Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom and with all thy getting get Understanding.

    The Scriptures also confirm that God is Love and can do no evil and that all good things come from Him not bad.

    Lamentations 3: 33 For God doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the Children of Men.

    1. Hello there, not sure if this is addressed to someone else or made it to my post by accident. I think Cristina reblogged my blog, I’m not real sure how comments work on reblogged posts. I’d be happy to respond to the point you’ve made Anne, I just wasn’t sure if you were addressing me or Cristina.
