So far, this book has been more than worth its price. There are a few quotations in particular that I would like to share with my Christian brothers and sisters, and with any idiot moonbat sinners in dire need of redemption. On pages 22-23, the book states,
Children spend most of their play time in the world of “let’s pretend.” In his imaginative play, a child can think himself into situations, work out reactions and generally come to terms, his own terms, with people and events. In his imagination, games and play materials are actually miniature replicas of the adult world… However, when children consistently pretend to be mystical characters, they are not recreating a real world. Often, when a person fantasizes too much on one thing, especially on something filled with the occult, that fantasy runs the risk of becoming a reality. Herein lies the problem.
Some “experts” believe fantasy is good. In fact, many psychologists encourage patients to use fantasy and illusions to deal with personal tragedies or physical or emotional setbacks. Others say to fantasize is wrong. Most psychologists agree that after personal tragedy, illusions and fantasies are crucial to psychological adjustment; however, the patient must have a firm understanding of reality…
Toys allow children to let their imagination run free, unrestricted from pre-set ideas. Nevertheless, these good influences also can be extremely harmful if occult symbols and violence are used. Occult symbols and violence guide a child’s imagination into the world of Satan…
To discipline the imagination, it is wise to avoid television, books and toys which present occult, violent or sexual images. Through these, Satan stimulates one’s mind to focus on vain and carnal fantasies. Imaginative play that is not focused on exploring the real world, but on the mystical world, is called “vain imagination.” When involved in “vain imaginative play,” children often exalt themselves above God, by pretending to be characters which they believe to be more powerful than Jesus.
(emphasis in original) Heady stuff, that. We can see that the roots of American atheism lie in the toy industry. Then, on pages 36-37, he provides concrete anecdotal examples of these same tendencies in American children:
A mother and her young son riding in the car were listening to a sermon on the radio. The minister started to pray: “Our Lord God, the master of the universe…” The little boy jumped up from the back seat of the car and said, “Mommy, God isn’t the master of the universe, He-Man is.”
There was one little girl who ran around the house doing everything by the power of Grayskull. Grayskull is a demon-possessed castle in the He-Man series. But, after hearing me speak at church, she started running around the house doing everything by the power of Jesus.
There is another case where a mother and her young son were in the car and they just had a near collision. Understandably, the mother was upset. So, the little boy put his hand on his mother’s lap and said, “Don’t worry, Mommy, He-Man would have saved us.”
Once my father was ministering at a church and he mentioned my ministry. Briefly he also mentioned He-Man. After the service, a little boy was seen in the parking lot running in circles while holding his He-Man figure in his hand. He kept repeating, “He-Man has more power than Jesus. He-Man has more power than Jesus.”
Chilling tales that should shake you to your core. Clearly, these toys allow demons to enter childrens’ minds.
As I keep reading the book, I’ll keep posting material that seems especially interesting and relevant. My hope is that the Brownback Administration takes concrete steps to ban the sale of toys containing occult influences. If a few toymakers go to jail for life or find themselves on death row, I wouldn’t see a problem with that. Better they die soon, with a chance to repent, than die later, in the full gluttony of sin and damnation, having drawn thousands more children down into Hell alongside them.
That’s the way I feel about it, anyway. You, of course, may draw your own conclusions. Just pray that they’re the right ones.
