The newest issue that parents and the media are dealing with is the Momo Challenge.
Some hackers hacked into YouTube's kids video and put an scary video within an innocent kid's video. The video told the kids not to tell their parents and do something destructive to themselves or to someone else.
This makes people want to find out who is responsible for this fake challenge that can cause damage to kid's world wide. People do not like it when kids are being scared or people feeding lies to their children.
I am not an parent and I feel bad for parents. Social media is great but it is the wild west of information. There are information out there that kids should not know about. Parents need to know what is going on with their children's lives.
The person is behind the Momo Challenge is Satan. People say that they don't believe in Satan but why is their murder and this Momo Challenge. Satan want to harm people and cause fear among the parents and kids.
If you are an parent, kids or everyone else know that there is truth and lies. There is God and the devil. The devil has a few tricks and he is in control of this world. Jesus pointed this out in the gospels. Luke 4:5-8 says, The devil led him up to a high place and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. And he said to him, 'I will give you all their authority and splendor, for it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. So if you worship me, it will be yours.' Jesus answered, 'It is written : 'Worship the Lord your God and serve him only."
Jesus didn't rebuked Satan on the point. God is in control and he is more powerful than Satan.
1 John 4:4 says, "You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world."
If you are an believer in Jesus, you do not have to fear evil or Satan.
People wonder why Satan has the title deed of the earth. Adam had the title deed in the garden of Eden then Adam sinned so giving the deed to Satan (read Revelation 5).
The sad fact that sin entered the world and Satan is in control of this world with the permission of God is that the Momo Challenge occurs.
If you are an parent, this world is not your friend to you or your child. The parent and all adults needs to get right with the Lord. There are many lies in this world and we must know the truth in the Bible.
When lies and fears comes in our lives, we can depend on the Lord. If you are an parent then know the truth and live it. Then tell it to your kid or to your children. Proverbs 22:6 says, "Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it."
Parents should know that social media can be bad and use wisdom and ask the Lord to guide you in this area.
Satan does not want kids to obey their parents and the Momo Challenge promote the idea of not listening to the parents. Satan is pushing rejecting parent's wisdom because the Bible talks about children listening to their parents. Exodus 20:12 says, "Honor your father and mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you."
The Momo challenge is Satan's work. The best way to handle this situation to listen to the Lord and be led by the Bible's teaching. We need to accept truth and reject lies from Satan and the culture.
There are two camps in mankind. The people that have accepted Jesus or the people that have rejected Jesus. 2 Corinthians 4:4 says, "The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God."
