So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter (2 Thess. 2:15). Guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the godless chatter and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge, for by professing it some have missed the mark as regards faith (1 Tim. 6:21-22).

Forget Ouija boards,... there's Twitter!

In the 'human beings are getting crazier every day' category of events, there is news about the latest craze being passed around the internet like a venereal disease. Isn't that what "gone viral" means?

For those of you who have long suspected Twitter is a tool of the devil, Fox News (NY) reports:
NEW YORK — The latest topic to create some commotion on Twitter has teens trying to summon a demon named Charlie.
The challenge includes putting two pencils on a piece of paper in the shape of a cross. The words “yes” and “no” are written in boxes outlined by the pencils. Then the participants say “Charlie, Charlie are you here?”
The part about the pencils in the shape of a cross isn't offensive at all. It's not like the cross is meaningful to Christians or anything, eh?

Teenagers should learn how to write something meaningful with pencils instead of engaging in spiritually dangerous behaviour. Something, perhaps, such as 'Dear diary—I am, like,... such a total loser for like... OMG, trying to summon a demon... or... whateva.'
Be sober, be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.—1 Peter 5:8.
—Footnotes—

It's amazing how blowing on a pencil to move it eludes most people and that it can cause such a ruckus.


Speaking of teenagers and venereal disease, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC/USA) report the following.
In 2013, 949,270 cases of chlamydial infection were reported among persons aged 15–24 years of age, representing 68% of all reported chlamydia cases.—CDC 2013.
So much for the claims that teaching kids about contraception will prevent the transmission of STDs. Can the infections be attributed to the (faulty, misguided, disingenuous, dangerous) sex-ed curriculums lauded by ideologues teaching in public schools? Sure, why not?

Before hopping into bed, perhaps teens should consider using a Ouija board to ask their "nether-world friend" whether or not Bobby or Jasmine has an STD. Nine hundred and fifty thousand cases of chlamydial infection among teens in the USA, not to mention the shocking stats for other STDs, does not constitute a ringing endorsement of contraceptive programs. The only thing artificial contraception seems to be successful at is preventing people from conceiving of the consequences of using a risky technology. Has it occurred to the promoters of contraception that people are only contracepting their brains from exercising reason and applying common sense?
