Demonic Movies... Your thoughts

Discussion in 'Teen Hangout' started by Ladybug16, Jan 6, 2012.

  1. My school is going crazy about this new movie called The Devil Inside. Honesty I can't stand movies like those. My friend know Im a christiam and I hate movies like those (Paranormal Activity...) but she still wants me to go see those movies with her. Is it really true tht if you watch a movie like that a demonic spirit will come from the screen and haunt/ follow you home? I really want to know!

  2. Don't be afraid to separate yourself from people who are not Christian, especially if they want to drag off to do worldly nonsense. What happens is you end up not having any influence over them, and they begin to influence you to wander away from Jesus.

    I hate to say it, but friends who don't have an ear for the gospel can be dangerous for your spiritual walk. That doesn't mean we avoid the lost, that would be silly. We need to be witnesses to His saving power. However, there is a line that must be drawn or you may find yourself wandering off and find you're no longer seeking Jesus.

    Satan wants to distract, hypnotize, and draw you away from Jesus. Satan will use worldly things to do this (including lost friends), so running off to do worldly stuff kind of gives Satan a chance to get ground in your heart. Give him nothing, give all your heart to Jesus.

    He will connect you with brothers, sisters, fathers, and mothers within His Body, and they will be spiritually healthy people to be around.
     
  3. 80% of Hollywood movies are occult based.
    A lot of people are demonic, never mind Hollywood. But I DO BELIEVE a lot of people become demonic from watching the tv & movies.
     
  4. The bible tells us to focus our thoughts on things of our Lord Jesus and if we go about watching things that are demonic, having spirits or ghosts or having anything to do with being taken over by a demonic force are not good things to watch or focus our thoughts on..these things are dangerous and should not be watched in my opinion. Why allow satan another porthole to enter into our lives.

    Alot of people think this way " oh its only a movie what harm can it do" fact is satan is prince of the airways and will use what he can to try to destroy and these movies in my opinion just open the door of the occult into the lives of people and should be stayed away from. It's not just a movie when it consists of demon possession of a person.. its dangerous and not something to be messed with.

    My intention is not to scare you in anyway my sister in Jesus Myself as well as everyone here just wants what is best for you.

    Philippians4:8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praise worthy meditate on these things.

    God bless you LadyBug16 and His Peace and Love surround you now and always.

  5. I remember how a friend of mine told me he "just had to" see The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo when it came out in the theaters. I guess he was following all the hype and was getting worked up into a frenzy of anticipation like so many others were.

    I knew nothing of it other than the title, as I don't watch t.v. and I don't follow trends. Anyway, as soon as I researched how brutal the movie was, it was a no-brainer to me that I was not going to see it. I didn't care if there were great actors in it, or some great writer or director was involved, etc. Same thing with any other movie.

    I have striven to have a consistent spirit of discernment towards Hollywood movies. And so as to not watch fleshly movies, I have purged most of my large DVD collection and now I basically watch Christian movies, or at least movies that do not pander to the flesh (violence, sex, etc.) or take the Lord's name in vain. I'm not saying anyone else needs to do anything like this. It's just something I have felt the need to do for conscience sake.

    And what I have found from doing this, is that things that I once thought I couldn't live without, are things that I don't even miss once I give them up and strive to be true to the Lord!

    I agree that we shouldn't involve ourselves in demonic movies. If Jesus was in the theater, no one could seriously say He would be okay with what we were watching, that we are just being entertained or some nonsense like that.

  6. I challenge everyone to stop watching television for two months. Then, go back and sit down and peruse all the channels. You will be shocked at what you formerly thought was "nothing."

    It's the frog in the pot syndrome. People have no idea the heat is turning up it's happening so slowly.

  7. Absolutely. T.V. has been conditioning us for a long time, slowly adding new things for the viewer to accept and become apathetic to. I say unplug the drug! And if it's not a drug, then why do people need it so badly, as if they're a junkie in need of a fix? And if it's not a drug there should be no withdrawal symptoms when we stop taking it, but I suspect there are.....
    I know someone that will go on a 2 week vacation and before he leaves, make sure he programs all his favorite sitcoms to be recorded while he's away. He needs his fix!!
     
  8. non-demonic movie

    the way is one of my favourite movies - check it out at wikipedia if you haven't seen it.
     
  9. Thanks for replying to this topic! I appreciate it!
     
  10. upside

    upside looks like a good movie.

    google upsidemovie (no gap between upside and movie)

    ...This fresh story of faith, romance, and coming of age is an inspiring reminder that when life gets you down, there's always an UPSIDE.
     
  11. Good day...:)

    For me, those movies about demons are lies.Those evil spirits lurking around and killing you in some moment is not true.


    First things first, if you are a truly believer, the evil cannot do anything to you, for GOD is always with you...:)
    1 John 5:18 says "We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the one who was born of God keeps him safe, and the evil one cannot harm him."


    So forget all those spirits that has the threat of killing you. They are just things that gives fear to people, and this fear alters the truth that GOD LOVES US and WILL NEVER LET US GO.


    Devils are always around, in my opinion..but in form of temptations and voices telling us that doing wrong is alright. Possessions are bible-based so they are true, but as the bible verse above had mentioned, no spirit will harm us because we are GOD'S CHILDREN...


    May God bless you...:) Hope this helps...:)

  12. I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes.


    The spirit of fear is a very powerful devil of satan's and which God has NOT given to his people:

    For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. (2 Tim. 1:7)

    This truth is not difficult to understand. God's kingdom is a kingdom of order; nothing happens by "accident." Anything satan wishes to do must first come across God's "desk."

    God is a gentleman; he will not interfere with your free-will choices. So, if you chose to align yourself with an unholy thing (e.g. a "scary" movie), then you have given satan the legal permission he requires to send his boys to you and set up a stronghold in your life. For example, a satanic devil (commonly referred to today as a "demon") follows every buyer of a Harry Potter book into his home.

    Hypothetical conversation between God and satan:

    satan: Did you see what Jane just did? She bought a Harry Potter book!
    God: Yes, I saw it.
    satan: Well, it wasn't a Godly thing to do.
    God: No, it wasn't.
    satan: Then I have a right to sick one of my boys on her.
    God: Yes, you do.

    This is Spiritual Warfare 101 and it's not taught in the mainstream evangelical churches today (hurts the attendance numbers).

    Until Jesus Christ returns, satan is before the Father, accusing the brethren:

    And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. (Rev. 12:10)

  13. It amazes that many Christians, even some prominent Christian leaders, think Harry Potter is just harmless fantasy and acceptable to read. You're right, most church leaders aren't teaching anything that could potentially upset someone in their congregation. They want to be man-pleasers instead of God-pleasers and in some cases the truth is too hot to handle. And society doesn't want the truth, they want their ears tickled by lies and half truths that justify their sinful behavior.

    Oh what wisdom and true words.


    I just need to say, thank you for this. This really blessed me too

    And dear Ladybug. I can remember the first few weeks of becoming a child of God, Jesus spoke to me a few, let say building blocks, one of them He said to me was: My eyes are now your eyes, My ears are now your ears, My mouth is now your mouth and My heart is now your heart.

    Why I'm telling you this is, the fact that you came on TJ to ask about this and that it troubled you is a open proof that Jesus lives within you and that He is warning you from the inside and making you alarmed on this. "Where God is, there is alway peace" and truely God is not present in the movie situation you find yourself in, and that my dear sister is something you need to always be aware of, is there peace present or not? If the peace is missing in any situation or dessision, consult the Holy Spirit and ask our Father for wisdom on the matter, for whoever asks our Father for wisdom and knowledge will get it.

    It is also no longer in your nature to have a liking in those things, for in Christ you are a new creation. It is no longer you that live, but Christ in you, through you, as you. You will never except movies like those, or music and whatever goes with it, this becomes natural and stronger with time how personally intimate your relationship grows with Jesus. And if you watch a movie unnoticed of danger, the Holy Spirit will let you know immediatly or the peace will be missing.

    So the thing is my sister, like the others said focus on Jesus and your relationship with Him (Jesus is the answer to all problems). The Holy Spirit will guide you and teach you day by day.

    Blessings to you

  15. I just thought that this would be relevant to to thread...

    Anyone remember Anton Lavey? Founder of the Satanic church, he was recalled to have said: that watching television is basically just Satanic evangelism.

    There are some decent shows on, but than you're forced to sit through the lustful commercials, and subliminal messaged all ingrained in there. Best to avoid it IMO.

    trauma-based mind control

    A re-reading of the posts on this page of the thread has been quite edifying.

    And you may have noticed in other recent threads the mention of trauma-based fear. Since there is no love in satan's camp, fear is the master. The enemy hits us with a trauma, then layers-in the fear programming -- and the proliferation of "scary" movies is merely part and parcel of this tactic. Also included would be both World Wars, 9-11, OK City, sinking of the Andrea Doria, Pearl Harbor, ad nauseum. Adoplh Hitler clandestinely burned down his own Reichstag (headquarters) to further his political agenda. "Create the problem you need" is one of the oldest tricks in the book.

    Demons are attracted by the "scent" of people. We are made in the image of God, and we are attractive prey to those who hate God Almighty. Cities are magnets for demons. When demons target a person or people, a common tactic is to make trouble for the person. When a person’s problems reach a crescendo, they will be in a state of mind to grab any solution that is passing by. People then make pacts with demonic forces. They sell their souls hoping for relief from their problems.

    All this is clear as a bell to the spiritually enlightened, but the demonic forces are able to dull the senses of their victims to the point they no longer have the slightest realization that they have sold their souls. People make a choice to accept the falsehood offered by the demons for their relief, rather than stick with the truth which seems to hurt. The demonic lies may be that colds and flu's are caused by evil spirits--when in reality they are caused by viruses and bacteria. Or the opposite type of lie may be given, that demonic forces have no influence over disease, that only viruses and bacteria exist.

    In Africa, modern medicine is often viewed as White Man’s magic, because they fight disease with incantations which the demons have taught them to use to cure their problems. Authority to demons is transferred to them by festivals, ceremonies and pilgrimages.

    Strong demonic manifestations usually occur around festivals, ceremonies, rituals and pilgrimages which are being done everyday around the world. These ceremonies and rituals are welcome mats for demonic forces giving them the right to rule. Every area of the world has them. And often demonic signs and wonders occur at these rituals and ceremonies. The power of a lie has to be preserved and fueled by tradition, which is manifested via rituals. Without tradition the power of the lie would die out. If the tradition is being rejected by a people, the demons often augment it with "new" deceptions. The first lie doesn’t stand a chance.

    The pre-existing bondage then is strengthened by new deceptions that seem more appropriate. If you were asked now, "HOW DOES SATAN ENSLAVE PEOPLE?" you should know the answer because it was just given it to you. The answer is Satan’s control is trauma-based. A trauma is applied to the lives of people. They reach out for some type of answer to the trauma, and the demons offer some type of answer--so many Hail Marys, or so many sacrificed cats, or pray to some idol which is a disguised demon. The lies are turned into myths which the people believe. The myths are a blurring of reality which the people on one level may know are false, but their minds can’t break loose of the power of the lie. The power of the myths are fueled by tradition and demonic manifestations and demonic attacks.

    Anyone who steps outside of the demonic lie is attacked. The people feel they are being personally attacked when their traditions are ignored. Because a people has willingly sacrificed the truth for the falsehood in their need for relief from their trauma, they have chosen to be deceived. This choice to be deceived has a great deal of spiritual power to it. They are no longer truth-lovers. It is not enough to come to these people with the truth. They have rejected the truth. They must at some point will to seek the truth again. These people can have all the proof shown to them about the truth, and they will continue to reject it. Their demonic bondage needs to be broken somehow.

    This bondage can be broken in a number of ways. Pointing out the inadequacies of the lies is sometimes sufficient to break the demonic spell over people. But after the lies are broken, they need to be followed by the truth--and the love of truth. The programming that is being done to humanity on a large scale can also being scaled down and applied to a single human body.

    Trauma and lies are used in the same way. Souls are sold to the lies in return for their safety. A basic ingredient to the programming of a group of people is the same--trauma and fear.
     

  17. i used to have that satellite tv. thunderstorm took out the reciever box. company had horrid service. wasnt gonna pay for a months service when i got none. they shut it off and said pay bill and late fees and they will turn it on and send a tech out. told them to come get their stuff if they wanted it. havent watched TV in so long i dont know how long. TV is just vile and crude and obscene and vulgar with messages of revenge and bloodthirstyness and we are our own god(little g) and on and on. i do not miss tv one bit. television is voulentary brainwashing twards a non moral state.
    the bible says to flee even the appearance of sin, and yet TV is entertainment?

    please take ByGraceAlone up on the challenge. you will feel so much cleaner inside.
     
  18. How can ungodly and demon possessed movie makers and actors in Hellywood....I mean Hollywood....possibly make anything a christian would want to see? And they are getting worse and worse. Next thing you know, they will make a movie called "looking up all your friends while you journey through hell. People are mocking God by making these movies. I understand that many many young people like to be "scared" by movies of the paranormal. I don't necessarily belong that demons of darkness will possess those that watch it, and especially christians. But why grieve the Holy Spirit by taking part in it? I know there are a few decent movies, but they are scarce. Even the cartoons just have to have women in their bras and scanty clothing and children watch this. Yuck!
     
  19. Hollywood definitely has a sinister demonic agenda. On Youtube there is uploaded a documentary which deals with this called: ''Hollywood's Satanic agenda'' It goes over the history of the organization and how they're progressively becoming more and more wicked. As Satan gains power in this world, so does his media.
     
  20. A new t.v. show on ABC is called GCB, and I'm not going to say what GCB stands for! Their hatred and blatant mockery of Christian values and all that is decent is so apparent. They can keep their obscene, idiotic "entertainment".
    Not one of the t.v. stations cares about Christians and our values, so why would we watch their shows, and pay them for it? I wouldn't watch it if it was free!
    We could use our money for a lot better things than watching t.v.
