The Charlie Charlie challenge involves placing one pencil on top of another in the form of a cross. A paper with “yes” and “no” is placed beneath the pencils. Challenge takers then say the words, “Charlie Charlie, are you there.” If the supposed demon is present, one of the pencils will spin to the word “yes.” This is a type of divination.

Time magazine reports the pencils move due to gravity.

The first commandment is being violated. Commandment # 1 says:

I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself a graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them or serve them.

The first commandment embraces faith, hope, and charity. When we say ‘God’ we confess a constant, unchangeable being, always the same, faithful and just, without any evil. It follows that we must necessarily accept his words and have complete faith in him and acknowledge his authority. He is almighty, merciful, and infinitely beneficent.

Therefore to call any entity or spirit other than God is a direct violation of God’s law. Continuous exposure to the occult can desensitize a person to some degree, making them more susceptible to subtly misleading ideas.When engaging in things such as seances, ouija boards and divination the door to demonic possession is opened.

Possession typically occurs when the victim leaves themselves open to demonic forces either through a life of vice where they are in the grip of evil, or through occult activity. This activity arises as a result of divinations, witchcraft and black magic and may include the use of the Ouija board, tarot cards, fortune telling, voodoo, satanic rituals and particularly violent video games. All of these provide an invitation for demonic influence.

Be careful and mindful to what our children are engaging in.
