I recognized them and used the authority I have in Jesus, but it was unnerving because the client struggling was a child under 12. Fortunately, the parent didn't think I was crazy. It made me angry that sweetness and innocence should be taken over by evil. Yet I know we live in a war zone, and children are the most vulnerable.
The child had been traumatized by violence and pornography that had come to them through You Tube unsolicited.
That makes me angry also!
The parents hadn't known they needed to put parental controls on You Tube! I didn't know that either. So for any of you parents that think that is a harmless site--think again and if your child has an ipod, or goes on You Tube, or the internet, put in parental controls!
And to Google, doesn't your users' agreement forbid that kind of content? I'm sure I read it. You should exercise some control over your site!
I'm writing this because evil takes advantage of ignorance. We can't afford to be ignorant of the dark side and their ways.
I'm sure countless children have been affected but are afraid to tell a parent or say anything to anyone. They suffer in silence. The feelings of violation are very powerful, sometimes making them want to end their lives. That is where it went yesterday.
We don't have to live in fear, that is not why I'm writing, we need to be wise and aware.
God is stronger, but it's our job to protect our children--they are our dependents. God will help you, but freedom requires you to ask.
