“Sweet Dreams, Kid, Everybody’s Lookin’ For Something”


Today’s installment ties up some of the loose ends from yesterday. Bradley Martin, “Lloyd Servant, Your Servant Of The Lloyd,” no longer has to worry about “the Kid” being quiet about what happened to Billie, but this new shadowy character seems to know a great deal more than even the reporter!

Both Bradley and Bradeena seem to be oblivious to possibility that since Betty May Butler disappeared, she can also reappear! But I’m getting ahead of myself!

There are two very true statement in today’s comic strip about theology. First, it can be used to sell “a load of junk.” Second, it makes people think. “Lloyd Servant” has to give people something to believe (and perhaps fear) in order to sell his “load of junk,” but it can’t be so involved that it actually makes people think about God.

There’s definitely more to come! In the meantime, I’d seriously like some reader input to further the plot. Here’s a question that I’m posing to all of my readers for comment: If you were to pick one thing that would be the biggest and most spiritually dangerous lie about God currently circulating, what would that be? (There are probably quite a few!)

Your responses may be incorporated into future installments of “The Lloyd Servant Show.” I have a general idea where I want to go with his brand of theology, but it’s always fun for me to see how I can work your ideas into the plot as well!

“The events depicted in this comic strip are fictitious. Any similarity to any person living or dead is merely coincidental.”

  1. I still maintain that the prosperity (aka health and wealth) gospel is one of the most dangerous lies we believe about God. Viewing God as a magic genie in the sky who grants our wishes is seriously risky business. This was not an idea that ended with the movement of the 80s televangelist. It is still very common today. So, there’s my input. Hope it helps!

  2. This might sound odd, but I find that the most pervasive and dangerous lie about God is that He has been revealed (primarily) by anything other than Jesus.

    Now, this isn’t to say that we don’t see aspects of God in other scriptures, in nature, in the Spirit working through people, etc.

    But we also need to check all of this against Jesus as the perfect revelation of God, as the one who shows God to us. So if any of those other potential sources of God’s revelation contradict Jesus, then we know we’re in error.

    Too often, I see people (especially me) trying to act like I understand God best through a Psalm or piece of theology or a speaker or artist that movies me. And those can get me to part of the story, but they always have to be checked against Jesus. He reveals God to us, he fulfills any other way that God appears to us.

    I am in the wrong whenever I forget that.

  3. the biggest lie. ” everyone you see, all around you, church folk or not, believes or not, are unknowingly already Saved by the grace of God. No matter the life they live nor Sin they commit they have a ticket to heaven. They do not need to believe in Jesus the only son of God because in fact they are also a child of God. They hold the same powers Jesus do within themselves. They are within God as God is within them, if people knew this the Truth of Light. The church would be no more and Their authority would not be. For the biggest lie is the biggest truth but, humans are to young and unstable. without the law of God and with the biggest lie the biggest truth their would be anarchy. For most people could not handle the power they hold. So instead of believing they are in fact God in living form they surrender themselves to the church and act as to serve to the rule of authority. “

    1. I agree. This is a huge falsehood: “Everyone you see, all around you, church folk or not, believers or not, are unknowingly already saved by the grace of God.” If this is true, then why would Our Heavenly Father send His Only Son to die a cruel and painful death? Thanks!

      1. A great wise man once told me.” If you keep believing that Jesus is coming. Then he will always be coming but, if you believe he is already here then he is.
