What are your kids watching and playing??



Recently my middle son {age 6} came home role playing a game. At first sight it was harmless. Then I began to listen to what he was saying. 
I sat back a few minutes and watched him play with his younger brother. 

"MS, what are you playing?"

He proceeded to tell me he was playing minecraft.
I had only actually seen this game in passing on another child's phone. It looked harmless.
But the more my MS {middle son} played I began to rethink this game. 
I looked it up. I did not like what I had seen.
 

Now let me say this, we do not have this game anywhere in our home. My MS has only seen this game played a few times from some of his friends. 

Now, I am not telling anyone what they can and can't, should or shouldn't be doing or allowing in their own homes. But I am warning all my fellow Christian brother and sisters of the dangers in allowing games and t.v shows like this in our homes.

This game is full of magic spells, demon entities {zombies} and other various things that are NOT God honoring!

"The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light." (Matthew 6:22)


If we allow of children to play games like this, view those evil things, do you think it will not effect their little hearts? Children's attitudes and thoughts are greatly effected by what they see and hear.
The Bible also tells us in Philippians 4:8;

"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things."

How can our children think of things that are pure and lovely when their minds are being bombarded with evil??

Ok, now that I have addressed that particular game, I want to enlighten you to some other things that are trending!!

MANGA

What is manga? 

The term manga (kanji漫画hiraganaまんがkatakanaマンガAbout this sound listen English /ˈmæŋ.ɡə/ or /ˈmɑːŋ.ɡə/) is a Japanese word referring both to comics and cartooning. "Manga" as a term used outside Japan refers specifically to comics originally published in Japan.[13] {source}

These cartoons would be Dragon Ball, Pokemon, Sailor Moon and many, many more!!
These shows may seen harmless in nature with just a tad bit of fighting and just a smidge of magic.
 
WRONG!!!

These shows have TONS of hidden religious meaning and can directly inflict demonic beings into your childs life!!

 




 
Cartoons like this have a mixture of religions associated with the characters and themes such as Shinto, Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism, and folk religion. The use of swords may seem like a natural things to use...but in Japanese culture the sword is more than a weapon. The sword represents three characteristics of Shinto- spirituality, aestheticism and utilitarianism all in one. 
In anime the concept of reaching a Death-God status is prevelant. The weapon used is a reflection of the character and his soul. The act of becoming a Death-God is by learning the weapon's name which can be seen in a metaphysical realm; a world within the soul. This is usually the common theme in these cartoons. 

There are tons of scenes within these shows were the character meditates and chants to activate his powers. These powers can be the act of healing, resurrecting the dead, gaining more strength...etc
Certain hand poses and gestures are used to call up gods to aide them in fighting and helping them with their quests. 

The list can go on and on.
This can get pretty intense and deep the more you study this subject matter. I will not go on because this could turn into a lengthy post and you might get bored with reading.

But my point in posting this is,
do you really know what your kids are watching?
Do you really know what the theme is? What direction the show or game is taking?
What are the results from watching and playing?

It is our job as mothers and fathers to protect our children. To guard against the enemy coming into our homes and causing chaos!!

You might think shows and games are harmless, but they are not. Demonic forces can operate in and through anything we allow into our lives. 
If we see it, it enters in. If it enters in and we don't get rid of it, we create a foothold. Footholds are places for the enemy to climb deeper into our hearts. Footholds become strongholds. Strongholds are fortified areas; places dominated by a particular group. This group would be demonic forces. 

We need to be diligent in parenting, being careful of what goes into the eyes of our children's souls...


Let's just say my MS doesn't play like that anymore!!

  1. Amen, it is really hard to share an opinion on this topic. We have pocket minecraft which is limited function, I find it harmless, I guess thats because we do it together, but online gaming is not something I would venture into, just the static, age appropriate stuff will be all we need. I personally have aversions to manga anyway but it absolutely baffles me the subliminals in those tv shows. I look forward to hearing peoples thoughts on this. Have a blessed day. Tara.

  2. I agree with Tara. .never been an anime fan--felt like something wasn't right and it only took one cartoon of pokemon to figure it out. .minecraft the free app (or whatever you want to call it. .not sure) is not the same as what is being described here..I have played it with my son and I think that is a key here and it is just a creative site to build and collect things-like legos or farmville etc...I am interested in knowing more of what the basis is on the info source and the differences..thx!
