A Former Witch Doctor Shares His Thoughts About Pokémon
By Danique Tersmette, Little Light Studios,

There was only one thing in the world for which a 7-year old Dutch girl would get up at 6 am and turn on the TV: Pokémon. Even though I was not raised a Christian, my parents did not like the idea of me and my brother watching animals fighting each other. Too much aggression, they said. So the only option was to sneak out of bed, turn on the TV and watch Pokémon before my parents would wake up. They became a bit more mellow later on, and my brother was allowed to have Pokémon cards. I even borrowed a Pokémon Diamond game for the Nintendo GameBoy Color from a friend (which I forgot to return and kept for years). My childhood truly was all about Pokémon. But we all get older, and I had already forgotten about these little creatures. But then came Pokémon Go. Is the world hooked? Not a doubt.

The 10th Commandment ?

ten-commandments-childrenThe Tenth Commandment

     When you look at the Ten Commandments, they are pretty straight forward all the way through up to the last one. John was right when he said, “…His commandments are not grievous (too hard, too difficult, not a burden)” (1 John 5:3).

His Commandments are . . .
1 – Have no other gods
2 – Do not worship idols
3 – Do not take His name in vain
4 – Remember the Sabbath day to keep in holy,
5 – Honor your parents
6 – Do not kill (murder)
7 – Do not commit adultery
8 – Do not steal
9 – Do not lie
10 – Do not covet.

     Everything is fairly plain and simple until you get to the last one. The last one is very interesting. It says, “Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s” (Exodus 20:17). Think about that for a minute. To covet something is to want something you do not have. God had already said, in laws seven and eight, not to take your neighbors wife or anything that belongs to him. Now He says, don’t want (even desire) them . . . ? Continue reading

Warning – a Biblical Review of The Hunger Games ?

hunger game books     “This know also . . . that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy . . . without natural affection (toward parents, spouse or children), trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent (without any self-control), fierce . . . . despisers of those that are good !”     II Timothy 3:1-5

THE HUNGER GAMES is a dark movie where viewers literally watch children kill each other in bloody fashion. With its humanist worldview, THE HUNGER GAMES has no depiction of God or the supernatural world. It’s all up to the movie’s heroine to win the game, but she has to lie and hurt other people to win. Based on a popular book, THE HUNGER GAMES is a science fiction thriller with a big budget. That means even more young people will see it. THE HUNGER GAMES is one movie that parents might want their children to avoid.”
