THE FAMILY OF A TEXAS TEEN WHO HANGED HIMSELF SAYS THEIR SON WAS INVOLVED IN A GHOULISH ONLINE GAME THAT CALLS ON PARTICIPANTS TO COMPLETE A SERIES OF TASKS BEFORE TAKING THEIR OWN LIVES, AND SOME SCHOOLS ARE WARNING PARENTS ABOUT THE SO-CALLED BLUE WHALE CHALLENGE.
“Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.” Colossians 3:20 (KJV)
EDITOR’S NOTE: The very first “challenge” I became aware of was the incredibly stupid Cinnamon Challenge where people swallowed whole spoonfuls of cinnamon to see how much of a throat burning they could take. Then there was the Eraser Challenge, the Ice Bucket Challenge and various others. So while it’s incredibly sad, the Blue Whale Challenge, which has
claimed the lives of over 130 teens around the world,
seems to me like the natural and logical progression in the ‘challenge’ world. The Devil doesn’t get you in one, big bite, he gets you in a bunch of little steps. Parents, if your child participates in any ‘challenge’, take their phones away and suspend their social media accounts. Take the ‘I Love My Child’ challenge.
