Why are there so many demonic symbolism in Todays Media?

You really need to give proof when making such a sweeping statement. As it is, I don't believe the premise of your question.

I truly believe Satan knows he is in a short leash. He is so trying to decieve the unbeliever--- and to trip up the believe who does not know scripture! he starts out making things look fun( never lets you in on the consequences).
Harry potter is fun..... Esp the spells!
Then there are cute little magic wands/and game boards and apps.
Now it creeps into the talk shows/ kids shows/and the media wants to latch onto anything for attention,and on and on til it looks like the normal thing to do!!
Scripture speaks against all this:
An abomination to the Lord!

This is so sad. Can't even read a fictional book without calling it Satanic. But the magic in the bible is of course a-ok.

Sheesh.

Your rhetoric is really getting old, Kitten. Of course, you can say anything you want to say, but it seems you really go for the jugular of any Christian comment. Sad to see...
Report as
No, it's sad that you people can't even see a fictional children's story without calling it satanic. Don't you have better things to do than suck the fun and imagination out of everyone else's entertainment with your paranoia?

Oh, quit ganging up on Skeptikitten. She's absolutely right about fictional things.
Do you have a persecution complex?
Report as
They do. They seem to think it's horribly unfair of people to call them out on unsupported claims they make in a public forum.

Kind of like how so many Christians today seem to think they're being "persecuted" because they no longer receive special treatment.
Report as
Agreed.

Better that we sit in silence in a dark room, respectfully reflecting on The Lord, than cruising the children's book aisle and chancing upon Harry Potter. GASP!

skeptikitten, if you knew anything about our religion then you would know that our God condemns any form of witchcraft, if you had any form of respect in your veins, you would let us alone and cease to hate upon us for our beliefs. there is no paranoia, and the "magic" in the bible is quite different than that of satanic rituals thank you very much. If Christians dont like tales depicting witchcraft, dont make it your problem

Think of why symbols were made to begin with. Hieroglyphics and such and you'll have your answer.

Symbols were made to communicate. I don't understand where you are going with this.

Surely you are not ascribing evil meanings to hieroglyphs for your point; maybe you mean that there are new hieroglyphs out there today that demons like to use..

Hieroglyphics were just a system of writing, no different than our own Arabic letters.

Oh gosh. You will laugh about the things you thought about in your teenage years when you grow up. If, when you're all grown up, you still think kesha likes using demonic symbols and and might part of some illuminati then that's when you are have a conspiracy nut problem.

That video may stink but it isn't demonic. Funds kids need something better to do with their lives than obsess about what music/movies/TV/books other people enjoy.

Funny how some people just launch right into an explanation without even questioning what alleged symbols are being referenced. The problem with identifying the symbols is that it would open them up to rational, non-supernatural explanations, and that does not serve to support the initial assumption.

@HaiMai You must be referring to Leviticus 1:31-32...
-----
But you shall keep my statutes and my rules and do none of these abominations, neither consume the Harry Potter words inscribed on the tablets nor the magic of the moving images upon the walls which profess and promote the worship of the evil fantasies among you, lest the land vomit you out when you make it unclean. Cleave only to thoughts of that which is real, for thinking about things which do not exist is like poison.

Because demons own the planet... Jk it's just a marketing gimmick to scare people like you into a secret love hate relationship and to coax occultists into buying the media to feel like they are apart of something other than their non-conformists clique.

Yup, cause satan knows he has a short time left and is trying to deceive as many as he can, desensitizing if U will. Making evil look good and good evil. And not only that but what about all the perversion in movies and in commercials, ie. Carl's Jr commercials!

You saw some during the Super Bowl, too...eh??? Immersion is how you make people desensitized to anything you don't want them to concentrate on or you want then to accept. Violence too. I've seen so many woman characters get hit by men with guitars and violent acts even kids movies, lately. It's all tempting us to accept things that are worldly and evil and not to do anything about it spiritually. Be godly and steadfast in the wake of these things. 2Timothy 3:2-4(below) is true. See it through spiritual eyes and pray for this country.
-People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God. Have nothin to do with them. You have to know what to be aware of, in order to have nothing to do with them.

Well you're right, there are so many demonic influences today. From reading material to movies. It's everywhere. However, the Bible explains why this is happening. At Revelation 12:9 it says, "So down the great dragon was hurled, the original serpent, the one called Devil and Satan, who is misleading the entire inhabited earth; he was hurled down to the earth, and his angels were hurled down with him." There is so much badness, because Satan the Devil inhabits the earth. At 1 John 5:19 it says, “the whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one." We can, though, fight it. At James 4:7 it says, "oppose the Devil, and he will flee from you." I hope this answers your question.

This is truly fascinating, Pandora, and I've just had a close encounter of the demonic kind.

In order to discover what on earth you were talking about I checked all the comments and learn that you are objecting to some of the background images in Ke$ha's video, "Die Young"

Well, I'd never heard of Ke$sha or her song but, before attempting to answer, I went to YouTube and listened.

It's not a bad song, not a bad sound, not a bad singer, but I'll admit that some of the background symbols are calculated to shock.

Then half way through the song my laptop CRASHED.

Was it a coincidence?
Did the Devil get into my hard drive?
Was God trying to save me from getting too close to Hell?

I'll never know but I'm not going back there again. Instead I'm off to cook a good pastafarian meal in honour of the great FSM.

R'amen.
