The TV show Supernatural’s 9.11 episode (ninth season, eleventh episode) is titled “First Born” and plays off of encountering Cain—the son of Adam and Eve. Below we will discuss the twisted twist the show places upon Cain’s murder of his brother Abel.
One of the show’s protagonists is Dean Winchester who is a hunter; a good guy killer of monsters who engages in occult practices so as to fight the occult—go figure. Hunters are basically the grunts of a secret society called “The Men of Letters.” He travels around with Crowley who is the former king of hell; a bad guy who is a practitioner of the occult as to reap souls into hell.
This not so unlikely odd couple cast a spell so as to find the location of the “First Blade”; the super weapon that looks to be an animal’s jawbone with a handle, that can kill the current ruler of hell, Abaddon (a “Knight of Hell”), who ousted Crowley. Apparently, the good guy and bad guy are attempting to reinstate Crowley to his kingly position because he is the lesser of the two very bad evils…or, something.
In any regard, our concern is the worldview behind the show and, specifically, how they play off of the Bible and distort it. Are the writers the Supernatural TV show incapable, unwilling or too lazy to come up with actual fiction? Who knows; perhaps they have other agendas.
As we noted previously (see links below), they sometimes get is right as when they defined a Nephilim (as per Genesis ch. 6) as the offspring of an angel and a human. Yet, they define angels as disembodied beings that possess the bodies of willing humans. Wait! What! Disembodied beings that possess the bodies of willing humans? That is the Biblical definition of demons. Biblical angles look just like human males and, by the way, do not have wings.
Within Supernatural’s 9.11 episode “First Born,” Cain (a salt and pepper haired honkey, who lives in Missouri and to whom the show refers to as “the Father of Murder”) explains why he murdered his brother Abel and what happened thereafter; after all, he is alive all of these millennia later.
Interestingly, Cain is depicted as “retired” and occupying himself with beekeeping. The esoteric / occult symbolism of bees is employed by Illuminati Masons as humanity that is; the profane, the lower humans over whom they rule as they see us as drones who live to serve and are expendable.
After murdering Abel, Cain became a demon; Biblically this is preposterous but the show defines demons are the souls of human being who become corrupt due to their time spent in hell (this is utterly unbiblical as well).
Cain then became the trainer of the Knights of Hell. Millennia later, Abaddon possesses Cain’s wife Collette who, the show emphasizes, loved Cain regardless of his being a mass murdering demon—oh, how sweet. Well, Cain figures that the best way to exorcise Abaddon is to jam the First Blade into his wife but, oopsy, Abaddon abandons the body just in time for Collette to regain consciousness and get shanked to death. The details of the plot are not relevant to our point but basically Cain set about to slaughter the Knights of Hell of which Abaddon is the last remaining alive.
Now we come to the point where Supernatural moves from playing off of the biblical record and takes a dark and sinister turn. They employ the law of reversal whereby anything that YHVH does is mimicked but corrupted and turned inside out, upside down and backwards.
Within this story, Cain—murderer, demon, trainer of satanic knights—murdered his brother Abel out of love and again we must say; oh, how sweet, “I love you bro” BOOYAH!
The premise is that satan sought to entice Abel into serving him so Cain decided to sacrifice himself so that Abel could go to heaven. That’s right folks, no need to get YHVH involved in such matters as the eternal destiny of one’s soul. Instead, make a pact with satan—'cause that’s a good idea! Oh, and satan decides that (didn’t see this a comin' did ya Cain?!) Cain is to usher Abel into the heavenly gates by murdering him—out of pure love, of course.
The episode ends with Dean Winchester being told by Cain that Cain did not have the First Blade anymore—funny how they cast a spell which was to reveal its location and which lead them to Missouri, but alas it was not here—as he had thrown it in to the deepest sea. Oh and another catch; the only one who can use the blade is he who has the mark of Cain so, no problem, Dean agrees to take the mark and Cain transfers it to him.
Well, how can dean scour the depths of the deepest sea? He cannot, oh shucks. But hey, that’s okay, the demon formerly known as the King of Hell offers to do it for him; it’s a match made in, well, you know where.
Besides being anti-Judeo-Christian, the show does that which has become as standard as it has become played out. You will note that just about every anti-hero story now a days places the protagonist in a false dichotomy whereby we are lead to believe that a person can find themselves in a situation whereby they have, only, two choices: perish (or stand by as loved ones perish) or do the wrong thing for right reasons.
Thus, Walter White is given a pass on the show Breaking Bad for becoming a mass murdering drug pusher since, after all, he is merely doing it to support his family (see our “Breaking Bad” symbolism). And Cain is a good, righteous guy because rather than turning to YHVH, he gave his soul away to satan and murdered his brother as per a satanic scheme.
The main point being that script writers will do that which they will do; they will express their personal worldviews (prejudices, perversion and all) into their “fiction.” Yet, we must be discerning as there are people who literally get their theology from movies, TV shows, novels, etc.
