Should Christian Mothers Let Their Girls Play with Barbie Dolls?

Is Barbie a good toy for young girls to play with? Can we clean her up, dust off the worldliness and make her wholesome?

Secular Objections to Barbie

Barbie has her enemies even among worldlings:

  • Barbie said “Math class is hard” like a dumb blonde
  • Barbie looks too thin and her body proportions are unrealistic
  • Barbie is too feminine and represents oppressed women

“Barbie reinforces the concept of heterosexuality because Barbie is very feminine. She has plump lips, well proportioned breasts and large hips. Moreover, she is often wearing skirts or dresses, high heels, earrings and make up. She defines how someone who is female should look and dress. However, it is not just Barbie’s appearance but her actions. Barbie is always with her Barbie look-a-like friends or her handsome, muscular boyfriend, Ken. She is often quoted as saying things like “let’s hang out” rather than “let’s study”. She is often associated with having fun and partying. However, when Barbie was not partying she was being a homemaker. She was in charge of looking after the children and cooking which rienforced [sic] the 1950’s role of the housewife (Klassen, 80–81). The few dolls that have careers are often in female dominated fields such as “Flight Attendant Barbie” or “Teacher Barbie”. Yet again, Barbie’s actions often reinforce gender stereotypes and constructions.” – https://medium.com/religion-and-popular-culture/barbie-i-am-not-your-girl-7e2565acac28

“Many mothers see Barbie as a negative influence; not wanting to teach their daughters that they have to be blonde and beautiful to get a boyfriend or a career, some women do not allow Barbie’s into their homes.” – https://commons.pacificu.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1075&context=eip

Okay so this is why the world objects to Barbie. I agree about the too thin/partying/immodest part. But the world sees being smart as a virtue, so they act like being “dumb” is a sin.

In reality, Barbie has far bigger problems than her IQ level.

Now let’s look at why I believe Christians ought to stay far away from this devilish doll based on the Word of God.

There Is No Christian Barbie

The world laughs at the idea of a Bible-believing “Christian Barbie:”

“Could you imagine a Mattel exec saying the same about a fundamentalist Christian Barbie, let alone manufacturing one? A Barbie that, according to readings of the New Testament, would be required to dress “modestly and discreetly” — hide her figure, her beauty, and defer at all times to men?” – https://nypost.com/2017/11/16/barbies-hijab-doesnt-empower-it-oppresses/

Yet Mattel made a Hijab-wearing Barbie as part of their “Shero” empowerment line. Because Hijab-wearing Barbie is a fence-fighter, so that’s okay. And because they will honour the god of the Muslims, but not the God of the Bible.

(Side note: sadly, the author of the article cited above who mocks Biblical Christianity recognizes the plain teaching of Scripture regarding how women ought to dress and act more than most professing Christian women today!)

So what it comes down to is Mattel won’t make a real Christian Barbie. There is no Christian Barbie and probably never will be. Why is she laughing at the idea of fundamentalist Christian Barbie? Because it doesn’t make sense. Barbie is a strange woman and a feminist (more on this later.) She is diametrically opposed to true Christianity in every respect. No matter how many thousands of different Barbies they come up with, at the end of the day there is only Worldly Barbie, because the makers of Barbie are against God.  The world looks at Barbie and at the Christians and says “Are you nuts? Barbie’s not a Christian and doesn’t pretend to be. She has nothing to do with God. Why are you playing with her?” And the Christians who see the flashy lights and glitter glam of Barbie’s enticements as something fun want to be like the world, not realizing (or downright refusing) the truth. And lest you think Mattel just hasn’t gotten around to it with so many other kinds of Barbies to create – they’ve done pretty much every kind of Barbie you can think of.

“Included among those made into Barbie and Ken dolls were Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, and Donny & Marie Osmond. This trend continued into the ‘80’s, 90’s, and 00’s as dolls replicating the rock-band KISS, the actors/singers Brandy and Britney Spears, and other Hollywood stars appeared on the market. When television threatened to put an end to Barbie,Mattel responded. Barbie could not beat the actors, so she joined them.” – https://commons.pacificu.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1075&context=eip

So we’ve even got a Britney Spears Barbie (and recently a historical Rosa Parks Barbie). Where’s the Susanna Wesley Barbie? Where’s the Johnathan Edwards Ken? (The closest thing I could ever see them making would be a Joel Osteen Ken, that one might not surprise me.) Why does Mattel only honour those of the world? Because Barbie is of the world.

“If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.” (John 15:19)

Barbie is a Teaching Tool for Girls

And a role-model.

“M.G. Lord, a Barbie biographer, once said she was designed ‘to teach women what—for better or worse—is expected of them in society.‘” – https://time.com/barbie-new-body-cover-story/

Okay. Remember that. The question is… what is she teaching? Is she putting girls on the path to virtuous womanhood and godliness? Does she ever quote the Bible? Does she ever glorify God?

The question I’d like to ask Mattel and all those that approve of Barbie is… is being smart a virtue? Is being pretty a virtue? Because those are really the only “good” things that Barbie teaches kids, besides maybe being “nice.”  Oh sure, Barbie’s “nice.” But is being “nice” a virtue? No. Not once in the King James Bible will you find the word “nice.” (This is a topic in and of itself for another post.) Nice only means you can get along with the world. When Barbie tries to teach any kind of character to kids through the movies or TV shows or whatever else, you’ll never get any Scriptural truth. You’ll get a feel-good, fuzzy, fluffy morality message with no substance to it. It’s not Christian. It’s just more rehashed humanism that tries to make parents feel better about letting Barbie the strange woman train their children up in the way of perversion and evil. She doesn’t ever even mention God or Jesus or even ever go to church.  But after all, why would she when she is in trouble with the Lord? I’m going to show you why.

“Not everyone loved Barbie. Some people mocked and pointed out the problems with the message she told girls to embrace. In response, Mattel stressed that Barbie’s message was that girls can do anything they want.” https://medium.com/religion-and-popular-culture/barbie-i-am-not-your-girl-7e2565acac28

Ahah! Now we’re getting to the brass tacks. She does not believe in or ever acknowledge God. Her message is not the gospel. So who does Barbie believe in? Barbie believes in SELF. And “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of thy law.” This is satanic, antichrist doctrine to the core!

I remember as a girl watching the Diamond Castle Barbie movie. There was a segment before or after the movie (can’t remember which) where moms and daughters were being interviewed about what they believed in. What were the answers? The tooth fairy, wishes, sleepovers, and “my daughter.” It sounds so good and wonderful, but not ONCE did God or Jesus ever receive any acknowledgement. The only thing that matters that you believe in is in the Lord Jesus, more than anything or anyone else in life, yet the Lord was deliberately censored from this, obviously because Mattel wants to exclude God to buddy up with the world, in defiance of James 4:4.

“Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.” (Matthew 10:32)

Barbie was Originally a Whore

“A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.” (Matthew 7:18)

Barbie is truly a strange woman.

Not many people know where Barbie originated, and that she was actually an Americanized version of the German doll “Bild Lillie,” a plastic version of – you guessed it – a prostitute comic strip character.

“The comic strip character was known as ‘Bild Lilli’, a post-war gold-digging buxom broad who got by in life seducing wealthy male suitors.” – https://www.messynessychic.com/2016/01/29/meet-lilli-the-high-end-german-call-girl-who-became-americas-iconic-barbie-doll/

She was described as “the star of every bar” due to her risque wardrobe, with a feminist attitude to match.

“In the comics, Lilli was witty, irreverent and sexually uninhibited. One strip, summarized by Lord, shows Lilli covering her naked body with a newspaper and explaining to a friend, ‘We had a fight and he took back all the presents he gave me.’ Another shows Lilli in a bikini; when a policeman tells her that two-piece swimsuits are illegal, she says, ‘Oh, and in your opinion, which part should I take off?'” – https://time.com/3731483/barbie-history/

Oh, now this sounds like a nice playtoy for children, doesn’t it? Lots of godly, Biblical character traits being exemplified there. (And remember, Barbie’s goal is to “teach women what is expected of them in society.”) Well in case you think Barbie’s changed from her old rotten ways… she hasn’t.

Barbie was first released in America by Ruth Handler (who was inspired by the Lillie dolls she acquired in Germany and brought back to the states). The only major difference between Barbie and Lillie was that Barbie had lighter skin and removable shoes.

The German doll ironically was not intended to be a child’s toy.

“Lilli dolls could be bought in tobacco shops, bars and adult-themed toy stores,” Gerber writes. “Men got Lilli dolls as gag gifts at bachelor parties, put them on their car dashboard, dangled them from the rearview mirror, or gave them to girlfriends as a suggestive keepsake.” – https://time.com/3731483/barbie-history/

“A journalist for The New Yorker magazine, Ariel Levy, later referred to Lilli as a ‘sex doll.'”

And that’s what Barbie is too. Barbie hasn’t changed. Barbie is still Lillie. Barbie has not repented of her whoredoms. That Barbie is and always has been a whorish woman is a fact readily acknowledged by the world. Why don’t we open our eyes?

In fact… Mattel bought the rights to Lillie in 1964!

“Barbie has courted controversy since her birth. Her creator, Ruth Handler, based Barbie’s body on a German doll called Lilli, a prostitute gag gift handed out at bachelor parties. Her proportions were designed accordingly. When Handler introduced Barbie (named after her daughter Barbara) in 1959 at the New York Toy Fair, her male competitors laughed her out of the room: nobody, they insisted, would want to play with a doll with breasts.” – https://time.com/barbie-new-body-cover-story/

Her proportions are designed to look like that of a prostitute. Sure sounds like Barbie was off to a great start.

Emphasis on the sexual aspects of her body was revolutionary in the world of dolls at the time. Wait, you mean it used to be that no girls’ dolls ever had the anatomy of an adult woman? that that was only introduced recently, when the heyday of the sexual revolution of the 60’s finally accepted what was previously taboo? Like me, if you grew up playing with Barbies, it might have been something you were desensitized to and it seemed natural and normal, even expected. But to them it was really shocking and bizarre. So what is wrong with Barbie’s figure?  Actually, there are a number of problems. Firstoff, when the young girl has to change her doll’s clothes, she sees things akin to very crude pornography. She sees things that she shouldn’t have to think about, suggestive things that rob innocency from her play. She may start comparing aspects herself to that and wanting to be like that, or feeling she ought to be more like that. It’s sleezy and defiling. But it’s not just little girls who see Barbie’s bawdiness – what happens when Barbie loses a leg and Daddy needs to fix her? What happens when Barbie is left on the floor half (or totally) undressed and brother walks by? Barbie defiles the whole family.

So maybe you can find a Barbie at a thrift store or garage sale and avoid the materialism, worldliness and evil influences of the Barbie movies/games/website/fashions (though a girl may still be introduced to these by Barbie).  She can live a simple life without a convertible and a mansion, like one of my Barbies did in a nightstand drawer. You can even buy or make Barbie a modest dress and put a little doll-sized Bible in her hand (you’ll have to make one, Mattel won’t) and make her go to Barbie church. But what is she showing when she needs to change her outfit? No matter how much you try to make Barbie a “good girl,” she’s still a whore and designed to be one (all it takes is a change of clothes to see that).  And just try to find a make-up free Barbie doll. They’re all pre-painted up with bedroom eyes and lips. Nothing you can do can change who and what Barbie is and was from her inception. No matter what you do to try to “clean her up,” you can’t.

“Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean thing? not one.” (Job 14:4)

Now, I want to make a point on this whole issue of Barbie originating from a sex toy. Several true Christians have warned about Barbie before this was widely publicized information. And in all honesty, we shouldn’t have to base our decision on letting girls play with Barbies only on this “hidden” knowledge that’s only recently gotten attention (intentionally; Mattel was aware of the potential damage to their brand). Because the signs of it were there all along right in front of our eyes. We could hold up Barbie to the mirror of the Word of God just as she is and say, “See? Barbie dresses immodestly out of the box in miniskirts, form-fitting, low-cut shirts and flashy jewelry. Barbie has the attire of an harlot.  And even when you change her clothes (and you’re looking at suggestive Playboy material when you do that) she still paints up her face like Jezebel with makeup you can’t even take off without removing her face altogether.  The Bible says to stay away from the strange woman. Barbie has no place among Christian people.”

Barbie hasn’t changed from her origins.  She’s remained the same – enticing men, acting and dressing provocatively, out of control.

Barbie’s Body Obsession

Ruth developed Barbie to be a sort of “role-playing” doll for little girls to fantasize about their life as a 16-year-old, (her own words) and so she justified the sculpted, voluptuous body of a developed female figure as being suitable for them to look at. But I believe the very premise of this is wrong. Little girls should be being little girls. They don’t need to be thrust forward prematurely into the physicality of womanhood, and doing so can result in problems such as unhappiness with their undeveloped body. They don’t need to be worrying about that stuff before they’re ready.  They don’t need sexuality in their face.  An 8 year old girl “role-playing” a 16-year-old girl is unhealthy because of what is presented to her, not only because it teaches dissatisfaction with her current phase of life, but because what Barbie models in what a 16-year-old’s life should be is as you can imagine not what a Christian 16-year-old’s life should look like – dating, partying, high school drama, fashion shows and striving to be an independent, feminist career woman.

Now let’s talk about Barbie’s excessive emphasis on the body, an idol of today’s society.  For years the anorexic Barbie with twig limbs and a wisp of a body whose diet book recommending “Don’t Eat” (I’m not making this up) reigned.  Some people calculated that if Barbie was a real person with her proportions she couldn’t hold her big head up or even stand… that’s how unrealistic her appearance is.  Setting aside the dangerous eating disorders so many girls suffered from because of such false ideals, even IF someone could attain to the figure of Barbie, it’s not healthy to get girls worrying about their figure so much!

Due to so much push-back on Mattel to get Barbie’s figure more aligned with the American woman’s changing notions of the perfect physique, the doll designers introduced 3 more shapes in 2016 – curvy, tall and petite. A competitor to Mattel created a doll that reflects more average proportions. Yet none of them would be considered by most people to be unattractive. And all of them still retain the fully developed, defined female figure.

While people are complaining that the curvy girl doesn’t look fat enough or the short doll is still too thin, they’re missing the bigger picture: it’s damaging for girls to be so bombarded with body types.  Does it really matter whether they are longing for a thinner profile or wider hips, when either way they end up dissatisfied with themselves and worried about their sexual attractiveness?

Barbie & Materialism

“Around the world, Barbie became an icon aspired to by both mothers and their daughters who identified desperately with the ‘rich, blonde Barbie from that rich, blonde country.’ Barbie’s portfolio reflects her financial success, independence, and material wealth: a ‘dream house,’ a town-house, a convertible, a pool, a camper, a Jacuzzi, a couture wardrobe, a horse, a dog, and so on.” – https://commons.pacificu.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1075&context=eip

Mattel has been constantly targeting children to make them want the latest, greatest new Barbie product, which they crank out as fast as they possibly can and then promote with their movies. It’s all about making money. They churn out new riches for Barbie every year to market to their audience, mostly comprised of children, tempting them with something that seems so wonderful they just have to have it. What’s it all about? Wanting more. It’s never enough. You’ll only be happy if you get this newest thing for Barbie (which is really like it’s for them, as they live vicariously through their toys). Their marketing preys on daughters in an unwholesome way – it trains them through advertising that they need the latest, greatest thing to have the “perfect” life. When they’re adults, they are groomed to follow the same patterns as manufacturers tempt them with material goods and promises of earthly happiness. It’s unhealthy and promotes a covetous spirit.

Barbie Promotes Pagan Magic Witchcraft

“Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.” (Exodus 22:18)

Barbie is a witch who is greatly into the world of magic (and attempts to draw young girls there).

If you’ve ever watched the Barbie movies (I’m talking about the early ones that came out when I was a young girl such as Barbie and the Nutcracker, Swan Lake, Rapunzel etc… the newer ones are only much worse) you will know Barbie promotes the use of magic and has done so for years. In the Fairytopia series (fairies are devils) Barbie goes to witchcraft fairy school where she learns how to conjure up magical forces from inside of her to move water. This is totally of the occult. In the Magic of Pegasus movie she even casts spells of “good magic” using a magic wand. The whole wicked, satanic lie of good magic/bad magic is taught in almost every Barbie movie! There is no such thing as good magic. It’s all bad and it’s all of the devil. It invites satanic forces into the lives of children who start messing around with this after they get interested in the idea of having magic powers. There are a plethora of witch Barbies to be had (many that aren’t clearly labeled with the word “witch). You can even find many Barbies dressed up like “bad” witches for Halloween. Who was the queen of Fairytopea? the Enchantress. The Enchantress was portrayed as the beautiful “good” witch. Laverna (yes, I still remember) was the “bad” witch who was trying to destroy everything to get back the kingdom. It’s all a mind game and perverts the truth of the Bible, saying there can be good and bad magicians, when all of them are evil.

“There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,” (Deuteronomy 18:10)

Barbie defies God by using and promoting magic witchcraft.

I remember when my sister and I used to have “fantasy Barbie” play time when we would change from playing with the more realistic Barbies. At the time my sister and I had decided miniskirts on Barbies may not be decent, but when it came time to dress the fairies up in their skimpy flower outfits (so short that making them bend over would leave their backsides quite exposed), we began to discuss if this was right. We concluded since it was just fantasy, it was not wrong for Barbies to dress in a way we knew was immodest. There didn’t have to be morals in Barbie fairy land. After all, magic is not allowed in real life, but in fantasy land it is fine. See the blurred lines? See the confusion, the double standard, the pushing away of God’s clear Word? Speaking of which…

Barbie is a Rebellious Feminist!

“For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.” (1 Samuel 15:23)

Barbie is a “Hellion of Rebellion.”

“Our brand represents female empowerment,” argues Dickson. “It’s about choices. Barbie had careers at a time when women were restricted to being just housewives. Ironically, our critics are the very people who should embrace us.” – https://time.com/barbie-new-body-cover-story/

Barbie is an astronaut, surgeon, veterinarian and more. She was on the forefront of the career woman scene. And she has run for president 4 times – directly AGAINST the prohibition of women from leading as found in the Word of God.

But as I’ve said before, all willful prostitutes are feminists.

“Therein lies Barbie’s problem. As much as Mattel has tried to market her as a feminist, Barbie’s famous figure has always overshadowed her business outfits. At her core, she’s just a body, not a character, a canvas upon which society can project its anxieties about body image. “Barbie has all this baggage,” says Jess Weiner, a branding expert and consultant who has worked with Dove, Disney and Mattel to create empowering messaging for girls. “Her status as an empowered woman has been lost.” – Ibid.

This quote isn’t just from anybody – this is Mattel’s own branding consultant saying this.  What she’s saying is yes, Barbie’s a feminist, but she’s more of a prostitute than a feminist. In all her feminist activities, it’s really all about showcasing her physicality and beauty (pride). Her body overshadows her character (which is not virtuous). This “Barbie” Mattel markets is a double-defier of God’s Word! She defies God’s Word about the place of women in society while she defies God’s Word about modesty and humility.

Maybe because a lot of hard-core feminists tend towards androgyny and don’t go for the makeup and toned female figure, they ridicule Barbie. But ultimately, the world and its feminists still love and buy Barbie for their children, because she’s of the world and the world loves its own. Should we who profess the name of Christ do likewise?

Even in Barbie in the Princess and the Pauper (which was much tamer than the later Barbie movies), what was the story about? Two girls who were dissatisfied with where they were in life, singing about freedom. Free to do whatever they want and not be told what to do. It goes down smoothly with young girls and even parents alike, yet it teaches rebellion. How did the story end? Each getting what they wanted in the grand finale of self glorification. What about the cat that barked like a dog? What was the message Erika sang to it? “To thine own self be true.” If you start acting weird and unnatural, embrace it for who you are. It seems so subtil – yet such a deadly doctrine. Isn’t that what we’re seeing all around us, the fruits of people being true to themselves (yet all that is is serving the lusts of the flesh, eyes and pride of life, and ultimately becoming a servant of sin)? No, Christian, to thine own God be true! Your self is to be denied for Christ’s cause, even if it interferes with your identity. I am crucified with Christ. The crucified life is not one of being true to self, but faithful to God, which Mattel will never teach a girl, because Mattel is on its way to hell.

Proud Barbie

Barbie always shows off her own abilities (to defy God’s order) and her own pretty looks – not any kind of virtue. Barbie never glorifies God. She is a self-glorifier and exalts herself. It’s all about looking up to Barbie and wanting to be like Barbie.

It was interesting that on a video I found of some young kids comparing Barbie with another kind of doll with more realistic proportions, one boy observing Barbie’s narrow waist said that Barbie looked like “she thinks she’s better than everyone else.” Even a child can see that Barbie oozes with pride!

“Sometimes she raises negative thoughts about oneself, such as “why cannot I have as many friends as Barbie?”, but more often she raises positive possibilities for the imaginer, such as “I can be a doctor… I am free to dress however I wish …I can speak for myself.”” – https://commons.pacificu.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1075&context=eip

Hmm… do you know what this reminds me of?

“For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High.” (Isaiah 14:13-14)

Lucifer! The devil! Barbie teaches children to defy the Word of God and do whatever they feel like doing. It is just  satanic. It’s the crux of the matter. Barbie is wicked and teaches wickedness.

Popular Barbie

Barbie is very popular. Barbie always has a big group of friends that adore her, both in the movies and in the dolls.  The boys vie for her attention and other girls are jealous. She always has support from her friends who adore her. The only ones who don’t like her are jealous.

But is Barbie popular because of her devotion to God? Does she have a lot of friends because she’s a virtuous woman? or is she a worldling who attracts other worldlings because she is worldly? I think the answer is obvious.

I remember when I was younger, I wanted so much to be popular like Barbie. That was my mission in life! When the Barbie Diaries movie came out was about when I started going to middle school. Barbie went from being the “good girl” (not that she was, Barbie has always been bad since her inception) to the electric guitar playing, hair-flipping, boy-obsessing, party-all-night rock star. It was the perfect segway into a life of sin for me, as a lost young girl transitioning into a lost young lady. I had no reason to be choosy with my friends when I cared about quantity over quality. That got me into the bad crowd real fast. It also turned me on to bad music.

How come I was so concerned about being like Barbie? Because Barbie is presented to girls as a role model. If Barbie has a lot of friends and is well-liked, that means I should be too, right? The glaring truth is that to be popular with the world, you have to be like the world. You have to have the same values as the world. You can’t be the same as the world and stand for the Bible and the eternal heavenly truths of the Lord. You know what makes you unpopular? Dressing modestly. Chaste, sober, pure behavior. Hating evil and loving good. Refusing to go along with the crowd. That alone will get rid of most of your friends real fast (let alone speaking truth to them about God’s judgment on sinners or rebuking or warning of the wrath to come!). If you walk with God, if you seek to live a holy, separated life as you as a child of God are commanded by the Word of God, you won’t be popular.

“Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.” (James 4:4)

According to the word of God, Barbie is the enemy of God. Again, John 15:19.

“If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.” (John 15:19)

You know, it really appeals to our flesh to be loved by the world. It’s easy to think sometimes as Christians, wouldn’t it be nice to just have a lot of friends and be accepted? It’s easy to get tired of being lonely, mocked, despised and lied about. I get tired of it many times. But as Christians, we ought to be going the other way, even if it requires sacrifice of popularity and being well-liked… because Christ did that for us. And because the world is going to hell.

The Barbie Theme Song

Let’s look at the well-known Barbie theme song by Aqua:

“I’m a Barbie girl, in the Barbie world
Life in plastic, it’s fantastic!
You can brush my hair, undress me everywhere
Imagination, life is your creation
Come on Barbie, let’s go party!

I’m a blond bimbo girl, in a fantasy world
Dress me up, make it tight, I’m your dolly
You’re my doll, rock’n’roll, feel the glamour in pink,
Kiss me here, touch me there, hanky panky…
You can touch, you can play, if you say: “I’m always yours””

This song is performed to and sung by young children. It’s vulgar, sick and satanic to the core.

Hanky-panky is used to refer to sexual activity between two people, especially when this is regarded as improper or not serious.” – https://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english/hanky-panky

Sorry, I’m not trying to defile anyone here. You can see how Barbie +  immodesty + fornication go together hand and glove. Always have and always will. But notice how it’s all about Barbie’s world, so self-centered. Barbie’s all about Barbie, and doing whatever she feels like doing and having “fun.” Whereas Christians are called to be crucified to themselves and their own desires.

“Barbie has all this baggage” is a statement we Christians should take heed to. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking we Christians can do what even Barbie’s expert brand consultant can’t do – unload all her baggage (which is built into her, by the way). By letting our girls play with Barbie, we tell them Barbie is good, or can be made to be good. How can we try to protect them from all the evils of Barbie while buying them the very doll that promotes this stuff? When a little girl hears the word “Barbie,” she’ll perk up, whether it is in that filthy song or at the store. How does that work? you go to Walmart and see a big pink Barbie sign, and tell her “Oh, no, we can’t go there, we can’t look at all Barbie’s raunchy clothes even to go buy Barbie a new bed.” She won’t understand that she should beware of the very thing she is given to play with. It is dangerous to give a girl a “cleaned up” version of Barbie thinking that it is even possible to keep her back from all Barbie would hold out to her. She is inextricably linked to evil, by her very appearance (not to mention associations with worldliness). And what saith the Scriptures?

“Abstain from all appearance of evil.” (1 Thessalonians 5:22)

Some may object that Christ can redeem the vilest of sinners, so can’t the Christian turn a lost doll into a converted one? It’s a doll, how hard can it be? Yes, Christ can redeem the filthy sinner, the sinful soul of man. Christ does not redeem things that are innately evil of themselves. Things that are innately evil show themselves to be so and ought to be shunned by God-fearing people.  Again,

“Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? not one.” (Job 14:4)

Unless you are a skilled artisan who can melt down and reconstruct Barbie’s body and repaint her facial features so she doesn’t look like the prostitute she was designed to be, you’re not ever going to be able to make Barbie appear wholesome. And her worldly associations alone would be enough to deter me from such an effort.

The Continual Manifestation of Degeneration

We find many kinds of Barbies presented in a downward spiral:

  1. Sleazy Barbie (from her inception to present)
  2. Witchcraft Barbie
  3. Mouthy Barbie (think back to “A Perfect Christmas” movie, if you unfortunately ever watched that, which spotlighted spite and bickering between siblings)
  4. Feminist Barbie
  5. Proud Barbie
  6. Devil Barbie (Monster High; owned by Mattel)
  7. Sodomite Barbie

Newly Introduced… Sodomite Barbie from Mattel!

“Creatable World” is a new doll line promoted by none other than Barbie’s parent company.

In their own words, it’s designed to “keep labels out and invite everyone in.”

Um, excuse me… since when are labels worthy of being shunned? Well Mattel, for hating labels so much you sure do make a lot of them. You label each Barbie box, movie and game. You even “labeled” your doll line supposedly against labels. What you should have named it is “Detestable World.” You think you’re God, being able to make your own world that is directly opposed to the God who really did create the world – and the natural rules that govern it. You aren’t creating anything – you are perverting. And as much as you want to, you can’t create your own gender. And to preach otherwise to kids through toys is absolutely satanic to the core.

Excerpt from the promo video:

“Kids right now – especially Gen Alpha kids, which means kids under the age of ten – they see gender very differently, they experience gender very differently. It’s a perfect time to introduce this new doll line that is truly gender neutral.” – https://time.com/5684822/mattel-gender-neutral-doll/

What a witch! This turns my stomach. Translation: We are queering your kids because we want to catch them while they are young and vulnerable to our sick, satanic messaging so we can pervert them into a bunch of devil-possessed sodomites under the wrath of God. It’s a perfect time to introduce this abomination now that what once was a society that embraced Christian principles has all but crumbled into degeneration. And you know what? As sick as this is for the world to sell to its own, a good portion of mainstream Christianity will probably buy it, because they abandoned the Bible long ago (or never knew it to start with). The fires of the sodomite movement are licking up the false converts today by the masses. There is going to be nothing left of our society that will remain untainted by this filth, besides those who are truly God’s people. It’s the devil’s plan in action.

Oh, it’s so vile and wicked. I tremble at the thought of what God will do to such people who are guilty of deliberately leading children astray into abominable sin and LYING to them. It is a lie from the pit of hell. It’s putting a cute, colorful face on evil and sin.

“One of the criticisms is it’s social engineering, but you think, well isn’t the Barbie and Ken kind of a social engineering too, you just didn’t even think about it?” – https://www.cnn.com/2019/09/25/us/mattel-dolls-gender-nonbinary-inclusive-trnd/index.html

Well, yes, exactly, that’s why you shouldn’t get either of them. When deciding between two evils, choose none. The question is, what are they engineering? Barbie is social engineering towards feminism, pride, worldliness, lasciviousness and witchcraft… Creatable World is engineering undiluted sodomy, atheism, humanism and abomination. Both are wicked. It’s simply Poison #1 or Poison #2.

You might say “This isn’t Barbie, it’s another kind of doll.” Well, that’s done because it’s all about brand protection. It’s a trick to make people think it’s something separate when it’s still the makers of Barbie doing their thing. This is the same thing Disney and other major companies do when they want to keep up their sparkling image while going in a worse direction that may cause them to lose customers. When you buy the Barbie label you still support the company making the Monster High and Sodomite dolls and damning the next generation.

Conclusion

I’m not a mother. I don’t have children of my own. But I know Barbie very well. I grew up with her as my idol from the time I was in preschool. I had her movies, colouring books, games, her friends (Chelsea, Theresa, Niki, etc.) and family members (Skipper and her boyfriend Todd, Stacie, Kelly, baby Chrissy, her parents George and Margaret). If I ever got a Target gift card for Christmas or a Birthday, that was a guaranteed Barbie purchase (despite most of my gifts being Barbie-related anyway). I spent nearly all my spare time in something to do with Barbie, mostly playing with them and coming up with intricate stories between all the dolls. I would make doll-sized food for them to eat out of clay. When I got older I learned to sew them outfits. My sister and I spent countless hours – literally years – playing and laughing together, which was really the most important part of our relationship and how we bonded to each other. Without that playtime we would probably not have had really much of a relationship at all, us both being in public school, and I have a lot of memories of playing with her that resonate deep within me. So I can understand how it can be hard to disconnect from those emotions and sentiments you might feel towards Barbie that are tied up in other emotions like love to your family members. It was hard for me at one point and didn’t happen overnight. I’m not here to tear down good things like bonding with family members and spending time together. Those are good things in and of themselves to be cherished as a blessing of God. It is what we are spending time in together doing that I believe God wants us to be concerned about, because He is concerned about it and how it affects us. My desire is to spare other girls of having Barbie help lead them down the wrong path, and to caution those who might attempt to allow Barbie into their house after cleaning her up about the dangers of doing so, not because I just have a grudge to grind against Barbie (in my flesh, in my old sinful nature I still love Barbie), but because of what the Lord has revealed to us in His Word for us to do:

“Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.” (1 Thessalonians 5:20)

So with that in mind, my desire in this post is to prove Barbie and see if she holds up to the testings of the fires of the Word of God, not to tear down anything that is right.

I could literally go on and on documenting all the problems with Barbie from a Christian perspective, but at the end of the day these things alone are enough to make a strong case against Barbie dolls. I pray that you please keep this wicked witch out of your homes and protect the girls in your life from her influences. Shun her and give your children wholesome toys instead.

    I never knew Barbie and Mattel for that matter could be very against God. In my honest opinion, it kinda offends me. Not the story. But, Barbie and Mattel.

    • Meredith says:

      Thank you for your comment Alyssa. I have no doubt in my mind but that Barbie is offensive to God, and it is good that there are people like you hate the things God hates and are willing to say so openly. Psalm 139:221 & 2, “Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee? I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.”

    Thank you for this. My daughter is turning 5 & she has always liked babies. well, my husband bought her her 1st barbie doll and she likes it a lot. I haven’t been able to sleep and I wonder if its because I have this in my home.. well we were planning a 5th birthday party and he suggested a Barbie party and It just wasn’t sitting right with me. so I searched & found this. Thank you!!! I will be throwing the doll away and no Barbie birthday party.

    • Meredith says:

      Thank you for sharing this, Kimberly. I’m very glad to hear you decided to hit the brakes on Barbie for your daughter. Yes, I would think the not sleeping is tied to having the doll in your house. It is good you were convicted about this and took the time to confirm why your spirit was troubled. Was not the camp of Israel troubled when Achan “took of the accursed thing?” But when this cursed thing was destroyed, so also was the trouble that came with it. It is good you took heed; many parents never give it a second thought, sadly.

      Just a quick thought that came to me while reading your comment… some may accuse parents who withhold Barbie/that which is Barbie related from their children as being harsh or unkind, depriving their children of happiness even. I would speak a word about this in case that is the thought of someone judging your decision. Actually, it is the kinder road, as you know, because 1. Not everything a child may derive happiness from is good for them, and 2. The opposite is true – it is unkind to give a child that which has so much potential to lead them into the wrong path. Rather, once we know something is earthly, sensual and devilish, we are commanded to “touch not the unclean thing,” 2 Corinthians 6:17. Barbie is not the only toy in the world and happy girlhoods have existed long before Barbie’s advent darkened the doors of playrooms.

    Ok. This isn’t about Barbie. It’s about the Magic Tree House books. I have 17 as of right now. Both the standard ones and the Merlin Mission ones. And I’ve been wondering if I should stop reading them and donate them to a Goodwill. Jack legit mutters under his breath a couple times in standard Magic Tree House books 1&2, “I’m going to kill her”. Of course, he was talking about his sister, Annie. But, he really didn’t mean it, I guess. He was just irritated that Annie ran off without him knowing. And I was a little bit irritated too. Not at the fact that Annie ran off, but that Jack said, “I’m going to kill her”. Like, sibling trouble is enough, Jack!! The last thing you need is to wind up in Juvie for saying something like that! Lord, have mercy on this child!! Okay, here’s another example that worries me a bit. In standard Magic Tree House book #20, “Dingoes at Dinnertime”, at the end of their adventure, Annie says something about the Rainbow Serpent having a grand role in the creation of the world. Girl, I hate to break this to you but you and your brother got lied to! The serpent, (really, Satan in disguise), was the one who tempted and deceived Eve in the Garden of Eden in Genesis. I mean, yeah put partial blame and Adam and Eve, but most of it on the serpent! It’s NOT Adam’s and Eve’s fault they chatted with a serpent!! Hey, the serpent started the talk! Don’t blame Adam and Eve for talking to the serpent first!! Okay, where am I going? So, yeah Annie, the serpent did play a key role in the creation of the world, but in reality God is the hero. The serpent was and still is y’know, the villain. I’m sorry, but if I hear a serpent name one more time out of those books, I’m gonna pray to God that A. Jesus comes back soon and has a talk with Ms. Mary Pope Osborne, B. that Jack and Annie find a Bible in a bookstore, they buy it, and for Christ’s sake KNOW THE HEAVENLY LEGIT TRUTH ABOUT CREATION!! and C. that in the standard book #36, they meet Jesus in ancient Israel and learn about His love. And also witness the many miracles He did, The Last Supper, Him being betrayed by Judas, (I’m sorry, Judas, but people back in your day and nowadays are calling you out for that!), His crucifixion, His resurrection and ascension. Good Lord, that’s long! And here’s another thing. In Book #7 of the Merlin Mission series, “Night of the New Magicians”, magic was used a lot. So, I’ma back up for just a minute here. In almost every Magic Tree House book, magic was used. The tree house that they found, belonged to an enchantress, Morgan Le Fay, and despite her being the evil character in the King Arthur stuff, Ms. Osborne turned her around and made her good. I’m sorry, but you cannot change people! People either change themselves and turn their lives around or let God change their hearts and lead them down the right path. It’s as simple as that. There is also Merlin the magician. (Well, duh! Some of those Merlin Mission books mention that Camelot is in trouble). Jack and Annie also meet two young sorcerers named, “Teddy” and, “Kathleen”. Here’s the thing though. Kathleen is a selkie. Meaning she’s a seal while in the water, and human on land. And apparently, Jack has a crush on her…. Does that not scream, “HOLY LIVING WATER!!”? Jack is apparently in love with someone not his own something! I dunno!! But, I was legit worried. Okay, when they first finish their first adventure in the entire Magic Tree House saga, Annie says that the tree house is magic. And, like I said, in 3 later books, the siblings found out the Morgan Le Fay, the enchantress, owns the tree house. And said that only they could see it because Annie believes in magic, and Jack loves books. But, here’s the thing though. Jack may have been going down a righter path than Annie, until he also stumbled upon the tree house. And because, Annie believes in magic, I’m just worried it was sending her down a wronger path. Because, like you said, and like I’ve heard in those LED: Light Exposing Darkness videos on YouTube, that magic is one of the many sinful practices. Annie just believes in magic? No, no that’s not it, Miss Morgan! She’s choosing to believe in magic A. K. A. taking pleasure in watching people commit those same Satanic sins. And since she does that, to me, Annie is also leading Jack down a wronger path too! And I think that because, they’re parents barely show up for most of the books, they’re choosing to follow their hearts. Because, Annie believes in magic, I think she legit followed her heart and saw the tree house. In all honesty, I guess Jack was tempted into it too, because he loves books. He was letting his heart and sister lead him down a wronger path! And will maybe continuously do so unless they (forgive me for my language) FRICKIN meet Jesus in the standard book #36! A. “The heart is desperately wicked. Who can know it?” And B. (An excerpt from The Lord’s Prayer), “Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil”. These two Bible qoutes right here are from the books of Jeremiah and I guess all 4 Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Like, and John. And what’s interesting to me is that Jack and Annie had a great-great-great-grandfather ironically named, “John”. Hmm…. Sounds like a Bible character was making it’s way into the Magic Tree House book saga. I’m kidding! A lot of men have the name, “John”. It’s nothing to laugh at! But, then again, Jack and Annie learn about some other historical figures beliefs in the 1 true God. But to me, they need to learn more about Christianity than that!! But, again. I hope you understand my experiences with these books. In no way do I find these books straight from the pits of Hell. They just send a little bit of mixed messages, that’s all. Again, Jack and Annie do have the strength to listen to real life people, but they also have the strength to listen to God, even though most of the time, I’ve noticed they were just choosing not to. Okay, Jack and Annie, this question is straight for you. Choosing to follow your hearts and other people, was that a legit slap to Christianity, everyone who believes in The Lord, and most importantly, The Lord in the face, or are you guys atheists? Hey, I’m trying my best not to be rude to atheists, okaaayyy? Or were you guys just being led into temptation and Satanic stuff? Jack, you are 8 years old! You should know better than to be tempted by your sister and your heart like that!! And Annie, you are 7 years old! You should also know better than to let your heart and temptation lead you like that! But, you two only did it because Annie was the one who believes in magic. And Jack loves books. Okay, author of the Barbie post, I want your honest opinion. Do you think I should donate my Magic Tree House books to a Goodwill? And get rid of all that Satanic stuff? Or should I let my childhood be with me as a Christian? I’m not kidding. I legit met the two imaginary versions of Jack and Annie back in my first year of second grade and then one night they legit disappeared. I was disappointed, until the 5th grade, they came back. Oh yeah, I’m taking them to church with me. And one last thing. I do not want an infinity war in my household. I only need infinity peace! 🤣 But, again? What do you think?

    • Meredith says:

      Hi Alyssa. Thank you for writing about your question about the Magic Tree House books. I have not read the books myself, though I remember when I was in school other kids reading them. But I think you filled me in enough to be able to see the overall picture. I will be honest, I am very concerned about you reading the books and would definitely advise you to stop reading them, and to stop reading them now. They are dangerous and will lead you down the wrong path. It sounds like you already are learning that magic is a satanic practice, and are feeling convicted about some of the “red flags,” the bad things in the books, but you are torn because there are some apparently good aspects in them too. Satan does not usually tempt people with things that are 100% evil, because he knows it will frighten us away and is too clearly wrong. He usually tempts them with things that are a mixture, creating confusion, so he can get us to accept it. By accepting what good is in those books, we end up accepting the bad as well and being influenced by it. This is exactly what he wants, as it will be harmful for us.

      “A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump” (1 Corinthians 5:6). This means it only takes a little bit of evil to corrupt the whole thing. That is why the next verse says “Purge out therefore the old leaven,” meaning, get rid of it. If a book contains even just a few things that are evil, where that evil is portrayed in a positive light, that is reason enough to discard the whole thing, because God hates it, and we ought to only read things God would be pleased with. Things that are pure and without wickedness are things we should read, so we can glorify His name. That said, this book sounds like it contains not just a few wicked things, but many. Even the very name of it says plainly it is a book of magic.

      If you donate the books to a thrift store, someone else will probably buy them and read them, and it could lead someone else astray. I will tell you plainly that they should be destroyed, as the early Christians burnt their books about curious arts (magic); see Acts 19:19. I regret not destroying the childhood books I had that contained magic and occultic things in them, because I didn’t know any better and didn’t want to be wasteful. It is not wasteful. It is necessary. If they are bad for you to read they are bad for someone else to read, and we don’t want to put a stumblingblock before our neighbor and cause someone else to be lead astray.

      As a Christian, you do not have to let go of your childhood to be right with God. God made childhood and it is a beautiful thing if we glorify Him with it. He wants what is best for us. There are many good things we can lawfully enjoy. But we cannot hold on to the things of darkness and be right with God as a Christian, because it displeases Him, and He will need to rebuke us if we are His child. If our childhood is so wrapped up in things that are opposed to Christianity, it may seem like you are giving up everything. But Jesus sees this sacrifice and it is pleasing to Him, if you give it up for Him. You will be rewarded for it too, in this life and in the one to come (Matthew 19:29)

      Your parents, if they walk with God, should be glad that you have been convicted of the evil in these books and want to get them out of your life. Regardless, God will honor you if you honor Him in this matter (1 Samuel 2:30).

      I will leave you with this verse: “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” (Philippians 4:8) May the Lord bless your efforts to seek His favor in all the things you read.

    • Meredith says:

      Yes, I do. It is still being aired? I used to watch it as a child myself before I got saved by God’s grace (along with many other PBS shows; PBS was all the TV I had access to on a regular basis since we didn’t have cable) so I vaguely remember the plot and characters. If you want to know what I think about it, I would stay away from Cyberchase and PBS altogether. They pretend to be educational shows for children but honestly are totally unedifying entertainment – like junk food for your brain – and watching them negatively affects your mind and heart. They will seriously stunt your growth as a Christian. Children’s shows like these have been scientifically shown to shift your brain function and put you into a non-thinking state, which is spiritually dangerous. This is something the Bible calls “vain.” Vain means empty, without true benefit. There are a lot of other things I could name that are problematic, from a Christian perspective. Just some antichristian themes in PBS shows like this one include make-believe imaginary worlds without God (pushing God out of the picture is completely wicked and against the Bible as it robs His glory and denies His sovereignty), rebellion against authority, occultism, environmentalism, the new age movement, hybrids and devilish creatures, witchcraft/magic, pride, encouraging crushes/boy crazy attitude, making a mockery of Biblical truths, ungodly music and an atheist perspective that never glorifies the Lord and refuses to confess the name of Jesus Christ ever, because the people who made these shows are atheists. It is dangerous to be entertained by atheists, because they have an agenda and it is not for your benefit. The Bible calls such stories “wicked imaginations” which God hates (Proverbs 6:18).

      “I hate vain thoughts, but thy law do I love.” (Psalm 119:113)

      “Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity;” (Psalm 119:37)

      “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God,” (2 Corinthians 10:5)

      I mentioned a lot of problems with the show, but I’ll elaborate on one… the occultism. Why is Motherboard the ruler of Cyberspace? Because it ties back to paganism. Pagans teach that a female is the mother of the universe (they sometimes call her Gaia or Mother Earth), not God. The kids are in charge of serving this false goddess on all their missions. It’s all witchcraft, and they use witchcraft too. And it’s all founded on something that is a lie; there are no worlds where God is not the ruler! The Bible cautions us about such fables, stories made to entertain and not profit the listener spiritually and are made for those who don’t want to hear the truth.

      “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” (2 Timothy 4:3,4)

      I’m glad you want to examine these things and see if they are truly good. I just want to offer a word of encouragement. Sometimes it can seem like everything is being taken from you when you want to get serious about walking with God and see things in your life that need to go. You might be afraid life will be boring without it. I went through the same thing. There was a LOT of bad stuff that I had to give up, some things more obvious than other, and some of it I really enjoyed! It was hard at the time to give it up. But you know what? God was gracious in showing me how much really was not pleasing to Him, and also at the same time bad for me. I do not regret it now one bit. I am so glad to be rid of the things that held me back spiritually and only would lead me down the wrong path. If you are faithful to the Lord when you are convicted, you will be stunned at the growth spiritually and be blessed with far more spiritual fruit in your life, most importantly peace with God. Nothing is worth holding onto at the expense of your peace with God. Nothing is worth being dragged down.

      I would exhort you to study sound doctrine. Read the Pilgrim’s Progress and other good books by the godliest who are sound in the faith, not for entertainment, which is vain, but that you may glorify the Lord through what you learn and exercise thyself rather unto godliness (1 Timothy 4:7) rather than feed on the husks of the world. Above all things, seek the knowledge of God, His wisdom, rather than the wisdom of the world. Remember how Moses esteemed the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt by faith (Hebrews 11:26). One of those choices was definitely more pleasant to the flesh. But the other yielded good fruit, fruit that was lasting to eternity. May we all seek such fruit in our lives through the choices set before us to the glory of the name of Jesus Christ.

    You will not believe what I found in that season 2 pilot of Cyberchase. In one part the numbers of rocks go in order like this. 5, 6, 6, 6, 7. Okay, so let’s analyze this. If they took away 5 and 7, 666 would be left. And what’s the Devil’s number? 666. I’m not sure if a Satanist worked on that episode, or if Sandra Sheppard the creator of Cyberchase, wanted 666 in there just to receive a ton of backlash from Christian homes. Oh, and I might as well warn you now. Have you ever heard of the Disney Jr series Little Einsteins? It’s a show that came out in 2005 or 2006, I really don’t know. Anyways, it’s a good thing I’ll never associate myself with them ever again. Why? Because Annie in a couple of the episodes was a selfish, ungrateful prick. The Little Einsteins can be a thorn in my side every single time they ask the viewers dumb questions, but this is just too far! Even for a character like Annie. She moped around for nothing on that Christmas episode when she’s the one that got most gifts. She should at least be grateful and thankful! YEESH!! Her brother and her friends are dealing with it like it’s NOTHIN’! Um, hello? If I was Annie’s friend I would’ve immediately whipped my Bible out in front of their faces. And try to patiently explain to her why God wants us to be grateful and thankful for what we have. Well, before I lose my patience! But, it could be hard for me because A. She’s a 4 year old! Some kids her age probably don’t know any better yet and you gotta cut ’em some slack!! And B. She’s animated. She’s not actually a real life person. The only way she can exist is through merchandise of herself and being animated. Just saying! Anyways, when she gets her wish box form on top of My. Everest in Nepal (finally found out where Mt. Everest was located!), she wishes for her brother and friends to be with her even though they’re literally right there hearing stuff like that come out of her mouth. There are more important things that I think she could’ve wished for. Like, having world hunger come to an end, world peace, homeless people being treated with respect, for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ to help fix this world, ETC!! But, no! She had to waste a perfectly good wish! And don’t get me started on what’s coming out in 2 years! The Magic Tree House books are having a CGI animated TV show! Produced by DreamWorks and releasing on Netflix!! I’d find it more suitable for PBS KIDS to do this like they’ve done with Angelina Ballerina, Arthur, The Cat in the Hat, Martha Speaks, Sagwa: The Chinese Siamese Cat, The Magic School Bus, Pinkalicious and Peteriffic, Clifford the Big Red Dog, Curious George, Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum, ETC! I got rid of Netflix on my phone because it was being a jerk! But, then going back to what you said, I really don’t care that I got rid of Netflix from my phone. It’s been screwing me over long enough! Oh, yeah! DreamWorks decided to kick VeggieTales in the stomach by firing Phil and Lisa Vischer, Kurt Hienekie, and Mike Nawrocki because they wanted more creative control over the franchise that Phil himself created. To me, that’s really fudging stupid, and DreamWorks had no right to do that! Fudge you, DreamWorks!

    • Meredith says:

      Frankly, I’m not surprised about the 666 insertion. This kind of thing is more common than you’d think in shows geared toward children, sickeningly enough. It is kind of the cherry on top of their devilish confection. I’m glad you got rid of Netflix. That was a wise decision. I agree it is good to break away from spiritually destructive Disney as well.

      It would be negligent of me before the Lord and for your sake not to follow Leviticus 19:17 and caution you against using language that borders on swearing. A while back I wrote a post on swearing that goes into more detail on why.

      Incidentally, I have a post regarding Veggie Tales in the works you might find interesting. I want to try to get it finished up. Thank you for bringing that up so I don’t forget to revisit it.

  6. Alyssa says:

    You’re welcome! Oh um, do you know about the movie The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It? Because, I wouldn’t watch it, even if it was the last movie on Earth!

  7. Alyssa says:

    Exactly!! Oh, um in the Descendants sequel during the song, “Ways to Be Wicked”, they said, “Evil is the only real way to live”. 🤨 Um, Disney??! WHAT?!!! Are you saying that good is bad and bad is good?! No!! Bad is bad! Good is good! Period! NOPE!! Resist the Devil and he will flee! That song better get outta my head before I grab my B. I. B. L. E. and smack the living darkness outta that song!!

    • Meredith says:

      Yes, evil is the only real way to live, if one’s goal is to end up in a devils’ hell, which is very clearly where Disney is leading countless thousands of people. That is their design and end goal. They are doing Satan’s work.

      Just looking at pictures of the movie, Descendants looks very dark, clearly nothing a Christian should come anywhere close to. It looks like it is centered around glorifying a bunch of proud, devil possessed, promiscuous witches. They might as well just write “hail Satan” all over it. I mean, with a motto like “Long live evil” what more could be expected? I can hardly believe this is something being targeted to children and teens, it’s so sickening.

      But I believe true Christians will know to flee something so obviously hellish as Descendants. Where they usually get caught is in the Disney movies that seem on the surface to be wholesome and innocent. Nothing Disney produces has been or can ever be wholesome. They’re an evil tree and will only bring forth corrupt fruit.

      “Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? Can a fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries, either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.” (James 3:11, 12)

  8. Alyssa says:

    Alright, going back to the Cyberchase thing. Hacker was Motherboard’s assistant until he rebelled or turned against her. Sound familiar?? Anyone else we know that rebelled against God? Namely, Satan?!

    • Meredith says:

      Yes, it is a mockery of Biblical truths, such as the rebellion of Satan, and full of blasphemy. I thank the Lord we no longer have a TV in our house and haven’t for many years. There is nothing worth watching there. Even the most tame of what they show is corrupt, never anything actually Christian. Nothing the lost world produces for entertainment is fit for God’s people to feed on.

  9. Alyssa says:

    Yeah, the first time I knew about Hacker’s backstory, I was like: Alright, Cybersquad! You call this educational??! LIES!!!!!! You guys are clearly mocking Biblical truths! WHAT IN GOD’S PLANET EARTH!?! It’s a good thing I stopped watching this show!

  10. Alyssa says:

    I’ve already banned multiple TV shows and movies from my room. Here’s my list. Lucifer, Twilight, The Vampire Diaries, The Hunger Games, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, every single Disney movie and TV show, For The Birds, Psycho, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, and after finding out that Cyberchase made 2 MOCKERIES of Biblical truths, I’ve banned that show from my room.

  11. Alyssa says:

    Well, as of today I just found out a 3rd Biblical truths mockery in Cyberchase. And I think you’re familiar with the story of Noah’s Ark. In Cyberchase The Movie: Part 1 they load 80% of the animals onto an ark. But, the flood is just slime…. I’m so fed up with this show making mockeries of Biblical truths!! In fact, if I went to a PBS KIDS convention and saw Cyberchase, I would’ve immediately held up my Bible in defense. I would be like: I can’t come over there for many reasons. And then I would feel good afterwards because I didn’t go to the Cyberchase exhibit. Or something.

      Thanks for sharing what you found. That’s definitely bad. I’m sure there are many more such vile things lurking in all of their many episodes and moves. And it’s good to want stand up to that. The Bible is always our defense against the onslaughts of the enemy. I think what you are telling me actually ties back to the article I’m working on; doesn’t Veggie Tales do the same thing as what Cyberchase did? They take biblical accounts and truths and change them to the point where one could say they also make a mockery of them, turning them into distorted entertainment. The slime thing replacing the flood in Cyberchase reminds me of Veggie Tales’ version of Joshua and Jericho (Josh and the Big Wall) from the 90’s. In that episode, the soldiers of Jericho assaulted Joshua’s army with purple smoothies. Veggie Tales also portrays the sin of Nineveh as hitting each other with fish, and many other such like things they do. I would humbly submit to you that it belittles the Word of God in much the same way. It causes me question whose side are they really on when they treat the holy Word of God with the same level of irreverence. Something to consider. There are also many other things I could mention. You’ve helped motivate me to revisit that post and get it finished up. 🙂
