Forget about climate change. A far more immediate threat to your family lurks in books about demons aimed at a youthful audience. The Amazon.com web site describes author Aaron Leighton’s “A Children’s Book of Demons” this way: “Don’t want to take out the trash tonight? Maybe you’re swimming in homework? Perhaps that big bully is being a real drag? Well grab your colored pencils and sigil drawing skills and dial up some demons! This paranormal parody is filled to the brim with funny spirits more silly than scary!” And it’s aimed for ages 5-10, according to the publisher. Publisher’s Weekly describes the book this way: The demons necessitate specific summons and express specific characteristics and abilities that range from pragmatic to gross. They include “Flatulus,” whose talent is passing gas; “Quazitoro,” an expert at finding missing objects; and “Spanglox,” “the best-dressed demon in the underworld,” who offers cutting-edge fashion advice. The author’s renderings of the multi-eyed, multi-armed, sharp-toothed demons are outlandish without being creepy, and the creative concept will likely inspire some readers to create demons of their own. While most evangelical churches quash any discussion of demons, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Target are full-steam-ahead with books that teach the summoning of evil spirits.
Disney’s latest blockbuster film “Frozen 2” goes even further. (Yes, I’ve seen the movie, so my account is firsthand). Sweet Elsa hears voices of the dead calling her from the Enchanted Forest. She follows the spirits to learn the past and future (divination). Elsa heeds the lure from the powers of Fire, Water, Air, and Earth (classic paganism and witchcraft), represented by Stonehenge-like stone stele. In addition to her occult abilities to create ice on demand, she rides on top of the sea (a mockery of Christ’s miracle) on a Nordic horse-spirit called Nokk (a Scandinavian sea monster that drags people to their death). One well-read Christian blogger said of all this, “Some Christians may object to the content, however, in an ever-growing world, I embrace these opportunities to learn more about other cultures, their myths, and their beliefs.” Sure, let’s all teach our Christian children to learn as much as they can about how to practice sorcery to be more culturally aware. Ridiculous and blasphemous. Beware, demon books and movies are after your children and grandchildren, and only the well-informed will escape the deception.
