It seems like every generation has their own cultic or demonic games. I remember when I was in middle school it was “Bloody Mary”. I wasn’t a believer at the time, so I thought it was a bunch of nonsense. I did it, and nothing happened (at least that I can tell). But here is the thing; sometimes something DOES happen. And don’t kid yourself, Satan and his demons will take any open door they can find in your life. Satan and demons are not to be toyed with. They want to bring you pain. They want to make you miserable. They want you dead and they want you in hell.
Things like the Charlie Charlie Challenge, Bloody Mary and ouija boards are not just games. They encourage people to communicate with demons or the dead. This can open the door to some very scary, very dangerous and very real demonic beings. So what can you do if you are pressured into doing something like the Charlie Charlie Challenge?
1) Warn the people you are with about what Jesus said about evil spirits and demons. – Not everyone is a Christian, but almost everyone respects what Jesus had to say. Remind them that Jesus called them evil. EVIL. These spirits aren’t there to mess around. They are tremendously powerful and do not have anything ultimately good in mind for you or any other person
2) Warn them that we are only to communicate with God. – 1 Timothy 2:5 tells us that Jesus is the only mediator, or “go between”, between men and God. In other words, we are only to pray to God the Father, the Son or the Holy Spirit. No on else.
3) If they insist on going forward, leave immediately, pray for them that God would stop it from happening and protect them. – If they insist on doing whatever it is, get out of there. Leave wherever it is you are and pray to God that he would stop what is happening and protect the people from any demonic activity that might be happening.
I know this might sound a little, but if we take the Bible and Jesus seriously, we must avoid activities like these. They are dangerous and sinful.
Do you know anyone who has tried the Charlie Charlie Challenge? How did you respond? How else might you be able to keep yourself and others from falling into things like the Charlie Charlie Challenge?
