Yu-Gi-OH comes in the form of cartoon, card games, video games, etc. My adult son is playing the card game all the time. My nephew is totally obsessed with it, he plays it almost constantly, and my 12 year-old is now playing it for hours at a time. This game is obsessive. I am going to ban these cards and video games from my home because it is quickly becoming all my son wants to do.
I feel that Yu-Gi-Oh is purely evil. It is based on the things of the occult such as demons, warlords, witches, faeries, dragons, sorcerers, magicians, and all sorts of evil things. There are spell casters and evil spell cards, summoning cards, and probably many more that I am not even aware of.
Does any of this sound like a simple child’s game to you? It sure doesn’t to me. At first, I was naïve and thought it was only a cartoon, and not a very good one, at that. Now, it has somehow managed to wiggle it’s way into our home, and our children’s minds. This is not good. It’s not a game anymore. It’s trying to take over.
To give you a better understanding of this card game, I will tell you what I have learned about it. First of all, you can just go to the official Yu-Gi-Oh website at: http://www.yugioh.com/background.php .
After reading just the introductions, you can get a quick view of it’s evil roots and purpose. Here is a quote from the website that I find particularly disturbing:
“Legend has it five thousand years ago, ancient Egyptian Pharaohs used to play a magical game very similar to Duel Monsters. This ancient game involved magical ceremonies, which were used to foresee the future and ultimately, decide one’s destiny. They called it the Shadow Game, and the main difference back then was that the monsters were all real! With so many magical spells and ferocious creatures on the earth, it wasn’t long before the game got out of hand and threatened to destroy the entire world! Fortunately, a brave Pharaoh stepped in and averted this cataclysm with the help of seven powerful magical totems.”
There are deeper things of the occult such as spiritism, witchcraft, fortune telling, demons, ghost, goblins, vampires, and much more. All of this begins from “little” things such as Yu-Gi-Oh. Why would we possibly allow our children to be exposed to these things, knowing that their minds are being manipulated in such an evil way?
I love my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and I believe that He has forewarned us about such things in His word. It is our duty as Christians and parents to protect our children from such evil forces. Yu-Gi-Oh will no longer have a place in my home.
