    JR Forasteros has a more silver-lining-focused view of that episode of The Boys Paeter covered:

    https://thinkchristian.reframemedia.com/the-boys-takes-on-corporatized-christianity

    He doesn't go as in-depth as Paeter did (doesn't touch on the one character's profanity-laced argument against Christianity). He seems to see the whole episode as a net positive because it exposes a fake Christianity where people use the Bible to justify their power.

    I think this is another worthwhile angle to tackle the episode from. My content addressed the fact that Christianity was being abused by the presumably Christian characters, but focused more on how the Bible itself was being misrepresented and how the arguments presented against it were broken.

    But content like this may more subtly speak to the hearts of some readers who don't want the in-depth analysis but just need to briefly hear from a Christian that "this isn't my Christianity".

    Thanks for the link!

    Here's another take: Brian Godowa, author of the Chronicles of the Nephilim series and screenwriter of To End All Wars, goes into his perspective on The Boys in general and "Good for the Soul" specifically on the Babylon Bee Podcast episode 11 ("Hollywood Hates Christians"). The whole episode is actually a pretty good listen, IMO.
