It's being called the new Ouija board or a supernatural version of the Magic 8 ball. If your child is suddenly preoccupied with someone named Charlie, here's what Christian parents should know about the Charlie Charlie Challenge.
The "Charlie Charlie Challenge" has taken over on social media in the past few days. The purpose of the game is to allow players to summon a "Mexican demon or spirit."
Here is how it works. Your children are instructed to get two pencils and lay one on top of the other in a cross shape on a sheet of paper. They then write "YES" and "NO" in the resulting four quadrants and ask, "Charlie, Charlie, are you here?" or "Charlie, Charlie, will you come out to play?"
If the top pencil moves and points to "YES," then apparently a demon or spirit named Charlie is in your house and your children can ask it more questions.
The hashtag #CharlieCharlieChallenge has been tweeted 1.8 million times in the past week, according to www.Topsy.com.
Here is our take on the Charlie Charlie Challenge. satan and his legion of demons are real and should not be taken lightly. satan is always looking for a way in into your life or your child's life. If you open a door for him, he is going to enter.
"When the unclean spirit goes out of a man, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, and not finding any, it says, 'I will return to my house from which I came.' "And when it comes, it finds it swept and put in order. "Then it goes and takes along seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they go in and live there; and the last state of that man becomes worse than the first." Luke 11:24-26
satan and his spirits are nothing you should be afraid of, as you serve a BIG God, but there is no need for you or your children to invite satan into their lives. If you know that your Children are experimenting with the Charlie Charlies Challenge talk to them. If you do not feel comfortable as your youth pastor to step in and help.
