A lot going on in this article and it's highly debatable. Don't want to attack numerous points with an expository essay, but I'll focus on the excerpt that stood out most to me: let's have a little fun looking at it critically to see if it can hold water.

"I do not see how allowing children to play with games that encourage fighting, reading of minds, use of poison, mimicry, taunting, teleportation, hypnosis, and evolution can be a good thing. This is not training a child to righteousness. It is accepting the occult and secular evolution. Is this what we, as Christians, want our children to meditate on? Of course not."

Before issuing outright blanking condemnation let's measure out some Biblical responses:

1. Fighting: the Bible is filled with fighting: Ecclesiastes 3:8, Isaiah 9:2

2. Reading minds: God can read minds: matthew 9:4, Matthew 12:25

3. Poison: Bible contains examples of poisonous things: Exodus 15:23, Mark 16:18
"They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

4. Mimicry: Bible tells people to mimic Christ: Ephesians 5:1

5. Taunting: Bible contains taunting: Habakkuk 2:6

6. Teleportation: Matthew 4:5, John 6:21 "immediately the boat reaches the shore."

7. Hypnosis: there's some possible verses but not doing to post them.

So I think this article is a little over zealous with how much it condemns especially calling things "occultic" that God does like reading minds or teleporting.

Some of those those it listed are non-starters. For example the Bible says to intimate Christ yet the article said mimicry is occultic.

The Bible says people can drink poison and not be harmed. Should we test God? No never, but the passage exists.

Teleportation. Did you know it's a fact Jesus walked on water, stepped into the boat, then instantly brought it to shore? Read the verse I showed you above.

Well, that's news to me. Good thing I don't play that game.

Why the sudden interest in Pokemon? Did something happen?

I’m actually finished here done you can chat how much you want and say whatever I’m done everything you see on this earth is 666 unless it blessed by a person through Holy Spirit for example shower-6 filter-6 that have snake shape form built by companies that don’t pray so demons enter these people and objects. sports equipment, your clothes, cartoons,video games,magazines,music and technology have these demonic symbols some of them not all it’s no wonder why the Bible says Seek the Things Above Colossians 3 Therefore, if you have been raised together with Christ, seek the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind on the things above, not on the things on earth. 3 For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, who is your life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with him in glory.

Best thing to do is go totally minimalist and either go live on a mountaintop....or climb a tree.

the meaning of the name Elmo is: Helm from God, hmmm 🤔 it’s almost like you’re saying god is demonic that’s not Christian like but anyways since it’s a red furry monster it has to be a demon monster that comes in the name of god it is possible cause that is the strategies the enemy uses to target children on tv since their minds are still learning. The name Barney is a boy's name meaning "son of comfort". Barney-6 letter word so it is very possible that David Joyner-6 is 666.The original Aramaic form is unattested, but it may be from בּר נביא (bar naviya') meaning "son of the prophet", though in Acts 4:36 it is claimed that the name means "son of encouragement". As an English name, Barnabas came into occasional use after the 12th century.

Yeah, I think s/he got banned. Many weird ideas about the Bible and s/he was rude/condescending, too.
