Joshua on Monday commented on his Twitter account @jay_mike, that the popular series, whose fourth season was released on May 8, literally had the devil in the details.
“There’s a show called Lucifer Azin the devil o lol, and you, knowing how captivating foreign series can be, You still watch.“Now you love the character; Lucifer, Like Jack Bauer and somehow you think, the devil isn’t winning your soul over…”, he tweeted.
The tweet, which has since attracted mixed reactions on social media, is trending with 472 retweets and 690 likes at the time of filing this report on Tuesday.
Following the immediate backlash from Twitter users , Joshua, on Tuesday, responded to his intial tweet which read: “This tweet really exposes how bad things have gotten. Satan is far more smarter than we think. It’s not just sitting around waiting for rapture to happen.

How do we give our lives to Christ? By believing and DECLARING right?

” He’s turning as many hearts as he can to himself using MOSTLY the media. It’s the easiest most subtle way for him.
“That being said, this isn’t to scare us, but to remind us to stay vigilant, wise, keeping our hearts and spirit on what glorify God. We are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus.”
Reacting to the controversial tweet, @TheFavoredWoman, commented: “Your dad’s poorly researched, badly scripted and low budget attempt at movies didn’t do Christianity any favors either.” Y’all basically scarred people for life.”

Another user, @KhamsObaje, responded to the controversial tweet saying “Abegi! It’s not that deep. I guess you haven’t seen a single episode of the show. Depending on what content you desire in TV, I find it entertaining . Anyone who’s gonna admire and idolise the devil will do it unaided, not from watching LUCIFER abeg.”
Mike Bamiloye made strong and lasting impacts on everyone regardless of their faith, than many of you or your Dads can ever think of making in a century, but it's Twitter, you can drag the man because his son is having an opinion you don't agree with. Uncouth & stupid generation

However, @solaadio who favoured Joshua’s comment on Lucifer said: “Agbara-Nla saved my marriage from being attacked by an ayamatanga. Please add my name to the list of testimonies of your father’s ministry. If I didn’t watch that movie in Lagos, i would have been clueless and naive and destroyed.”.
Take a look at our society… Take a look at your own self.
How increasingly tolerant have we become of actions and atrocities previously unheard of?
Homosexuality, Incest, Fraud, Drug Abuse amongst others…
How did we get so tolerant?
Movies and Music. Dig it https://t.co/lHKU8UDsPJ
