Fairies, Gnomes, Elves and More.....

                                                         [picture cite]
The other day, a non-Christian acquaintance from my old community told me they were making a fairy door for their tree outside, and I said "What is that?" It seems that this is a new trend where people will make little miniature doors, and windows and rooms for would be "fairies". They will use bottom crevices in trees often to put these doors. I found myself very disturbed by this.

                                          [picture cite]

 Some towns have made these art installations for the entire town. Even their town library has little
doors spread among it's shelves for the fairies. That's kind of creepy. What would you think to walk down a street and see little miniature doors and rooms that no humans could enter? Also take note
of how they leave coins for the fairies.



This is now a popular trend with people putting these things in their trees and decorating their yards and gardens with fairy doors, sometimes called Gnome Doors too....



The world thinks this stuff is cute fantasy but what is a fairy or faerie as they are known in the occult?

Ever hear of wood, water sprites? of elementals? of "lights" out in nature? Some claim they see little lights or orbs. Faeries are known to be connected to magic. Faerie magic is a known subject in Wicca. There are magic spells to call up faeries [aka demons]. There are herbs and magical properties that go along with the faeries or "little folk".

Here is a definition of fairies. Obviously they are considered SPIRITS even in the occult realm.
"Definition from "Funk & Wagnalls Multimedia Encyclopedia"-- "a diminutive supernatural creature, generally in human form, dwelling in an imaginary region called fairyland; and the stories of its interventions through magic in mortal affairs. The term fairy is also loosely applied to such beings as brownies, gnomes, elves, nixies, goblins, trolls, dwarfs, pixies, kobolds, banshees, sylphs, sprites, and undines. The folk imagination not only conceives of fairyland as a distinct domain, but also imagines fairies as living in everyday surroundings such as hills, trees, and streams and sees fairy rings, fairy tables, and fairy steeds in natural objects. The belief in fairies was an almost universal attribute of early folk culture. In ancient Greek literature the sirens in Homer’s Odyssey are fairies, and a number of the heroes in his Iliad have fairy lovers in the form of nymphs. The Gandharvas (celestial singers and musicians), who figure in Sanskrit poetry, were fairies, as were the Hathors, or female genii, of ancient Egypt, who appeared at the birth of a child and predicted the child’s future."

One thing I noticed is some dictionaries listed fairies as "imaginary creatures full of mischief", in other words "not real". I am sure some would read this post and think it crazy that someone would protest the building of fairy doors and little doorways spread around a town for fairies to move into. But how many places in our society are we told that spirits aren't real and that dabbling with the spirit realm is just child's play and FOR FUN? How many times do lost people invite the occult in under the guise of fantasy and fiction or just playing a game? Why are human beings so fascinated by the idea of little creatures who have powers superior to human beings moving into cracks in their trees or little doll-houses they have set up for them? Talk about an invitation to false spirits. Talk about leading children into vain imaginations. That's what that Santa Claus and Easter Bunny stuff does too.

 2 Corinthians 10:5

King James Version (KJV)

5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;


Makes you wonder about FAIRY TALES? Named for the fairies, maybe they aren't so good. That would be a subject for another post.

I believe that demons shape-shift, in various forms, and that fairies definitely would be one of those forms during human history. Today one form are aliens. There is a reason they never have found a UFO with little green men to take to the lab. Those are sometimes spiritual manifestations in my opinion. [Of course with Project Blue Beam and other deceptive forces among human beings there is a lot of planned trickery as well]

Many mystical creatures are demons shape-shifting throughout history. If the creature is "metaphysical", has special powers, etc, then watch out!  Leprechauns, Gnomes, Elves, Fairies, Goblins, Aliens, etc. Perhaps even Big Foot and some of the other creatures seen out there beyond what the tricksters are up to. While yes, they can be just imaginative and not a physical manifestation of a spirit, I believe there is a reason the theme of their existence crops up in all human societies. Demons have shown up to deceive and mislead. These creatures are demonic and as they have appeared in history to people they are just shape-shifted variations on demons.  



 In the 1970's, Gnomes were celebrated. I owned this book and even collected Gnomes and as a child I imagined "What if they were real?" My relatives bought me Tom Clark Gnome statues for Christmas. We sold off the Gnomes before I became a Christian or realized the truth about Gnomes. One thing about Gnomes, they were praised even in the Gnomes book for having magic powers. You may want to rethink the next time you buy a garden gnome to decorate your yard with.



All those Gnome statues had coins attached to them. What did that mean? Trolls and pot of gold go together and so does money and Gnomes.

People take for granted how much all these little would be " metaphysical" creatures are part of the secular world and imaginations. House decor, decorations, garden decorations, wind chimes, Tinkerbelle, naming little girl scouts Brownies--Why on earth do little girls have to say this to a mirror on the floor ?


Of course the LOGO itself has the ELF/BROWNIE in it. [picture cite]

Another name in the fairy world is "brownies" which may make you wonder about the Girl Scouts choosing that as the name for their younger members. [Warning on link. it is a witchcraft website]

"In 1703, John Brand wrote in his description of Zetland that:

“Not above forty or fifty years ago, every family had a brownie, or evil spirit, so called, which served them, to which they gave a sacrifice for his service; as when they churned their milk, they took a part thereof, and sprinkled every corner of the house with it, for Brownie’s use; likewise, when they brewed, they had a stone which they called ‘Brownie’s stane’, wherein there was a little hole into which they poured some wort for a sacrifice to Brownie. They also had some stacks of corn, which they called Brownie’s Stacks, which, though they were not bound with straw ropes, or in any way fenced as other stacks used to be, yet the greatest storm of wind was not able to blow away straw off them.”
And here is a new LOGO for the Brownies in the Girl Scouts, check out those keys and the one closed eye on the figure. I saw the keys on a bigger picture and one has a star in the middle of it, one a circle, and another shape I couldn't figure out. The picture is from Scoutland.com but seen on many other scouting websites.




Then let's take false holidays like Christmas, where they focus on ELVES:


                                                      [picture cite]

There is a popular trend out there called ELF on a SHELF, that is like this fairy door nonsense. Based on a 2005 book, this is a new tradition where people are buying elves to "watch" over their children and get them to behave:

"The poetic story dictates that the elf's main priority around the family's household is to keep watch over the children's behavior during the day and return to the North Pole overnight to report their behavior to Santa Claus, detailing any acts of obedience or misdeeds performed by a child during that particular day, returning home by the following morning. Starting from the day following Thanksgiving to Christmas Eve, the elf remains with its family to ensure that they behave properly throughout the holidays. However, the top policy regarding the Elf on the Shelf is to refrain from touching the creature, as doing so could permanently erase any Christmas magic with which the elf had been bestowed upon being named by the family. It is no longer capable of fulfilling its duties of recounting the events of the day to Santa Claus, cautioning that he may or may not learn about a child's behavior should the Elf on the Shelf be stripped of its holiday enchantment. Every day, the elf's position changes, providing the family with the responsibility of locating its current perch before its departure for the year on Christmas Eve."
There a child is taught legalism and indoctrinated into more false Christmas traditions. Basically the Elf on the Shelf is like NSA and Santa [Satan Claws] rolled up into one.  As everyone here knows I have posted against Christmas multiple times. Christmas has witchcraft as part of it, that is because it is based on paganism at it's core. "Christmas magic" is a phrase oft used. 

So why are people so into this stuff? All these "creatures" in every world culture, are credited with magic powers. The Bible warns us against witchcraft time and time again.

Isaiah 19:3 - And the spirit of Egypt shall fail in the midst thereof; and I will destroy the counsel thereof: and they shall seek to the idols, and to the charmers, and to them that have familiar spirits, and to the wizards.

It's like Disney world, the worse of the occult and obvious witchcraft is infused into the culture. No one even questions this stuff.  My space was limited here but I could provide endless other examples.

                                                     [picture cite]

Obviously if one reads through legends and more in other world cultures, these are "beings" called upon for the use of magic and to "fix problems" and also seen as the cause of problems as well as help at a price to human beings. In "fairy tales", very few pray to God, they seek after false spirits and beings.

In fairy tales, elves, fairies, leprechauns, brownies are called upon to aid humans and they all require a spell or a price in every fairy tale I ever have read. So why are these creatures celebrated by Christians in too many instances? Why do they buy their child a fairy-princess bedroom set, or buy a set of Gnomes for the garden? Trust me I know these are some things that may not even occur to some folks until pointed out.  I know some are going to be outraged by this article, telling me I am legalistic and in disbelief that I am even addressing this issue, but if you know God's mandates regarding spirits and witchcraft, why celebrate characters that are associated with BOTH?

Especially considering all of the false perverted bible versions flooding the market and churches, all of which deny the diety of Jesus Christ, his blood atonement, the Virgin Birth, etc - not surprised at all that a lot of this witchcraft nonsense has really flooded the world in our present day.

Leaning on those perverted bible versions is having a wet noodle-arm defense. Not surprising that b/c these bible versions is building your house on sand, other occultic nonsense is being brought in like this.

As for these shape-shifters - not saying I'm 100% sure about this, but wouldn't surprise me if most of the MSM(especially on tv), political leaders and showbiz folks are just that. After all, they spread a lot of lies and propaganda.

God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow, what He hated at the beginning of time still aplies today. Just because people re-package things, like Christmas and other pagan holidays does not make them clean in His eyes. There's a reason the Remnant is warned to "come out of her", "to not be unequally yoked", "be seperate", "trust in no man", "be wise as a serpent but gentle as a dove" etc.... People want to be called Christians but don't want to bother pleasing and trusting our Lord God. A little leaven...

I study the folklore of fairies and hope I might be able to help with any questions you have! I'm also slightly puzzled by the popularity of fairies these days in popular culture and toys, etc. Traditionally in folklore and myth the fairies were something that many superstitious people were scared of, they were seen as dangerous creatures who stole children and replaced them with changlings, kidknapped people, and played cruel tricks on them etc. Though some fairy creatures like Brownies were thought to be kind helpful creatures who helped people in return for food etc, harmless creatures who wouldn't hurt humans. Superstitious people wouldn't even say the word 'fairies' for fear of offending them, and would stay away from places associated with the fairies. It's only in the last hundred years or so that fairies have become cute little things in pretty pink dresses.

Fairies aren't usually associated with witchcraft in traditional folklore, though there are some historical accounts of witches during the witch hunting times claiming they worked with fairies, but this is not typical of most fairy stories. Likewise, fairies aren't usually associated with devils, demons, or occult practises, this is generally a more modern invention. Though in some traditional ballads, like that of Tam Lin, it is said that the fairies must pay a tithe to hell every 7 years, make of that what you will! Usually however fairies are written of as a seperate race of beings, independent from humans, not evil or good, just mischevious and abiding by their own rules.

You might be interested in hearing some old folklore of fairies concerning Christianity. Some say that when the angels revolted and God closed the gates of heaven, some angels were too bad for heaven and too good for hell and they fell to earth and became fairies. Another tale tells that God visited Adam and Eve and asked to see their children, but Eve was ashamed to show some of them as they were dirty and unwashed, and when god realised he said those children shall remain unseen and they became the fairies.

You might also be interested in a book called 'The Secret Commonwealth of Elves, Fauns, and Fairies' written in 1691 by a Scottish clergyman called Robert Kirk. You can read it online here: http://www.sacred-texts.com/neu/celt/sce/ Lots of books on folklore, including fairies, were written by clergymen and ministers, I think this was because to some degree they were fighting against superstition and trying to convert people away from their old beliefs and introduce them to Christianity. It is said that fairies hate church bells and move away when a church is built!

I find it all very fascinating but do agree that people certainly shouldn't be inviting fairies into their houses just in case, who knows what they might let in!

I thought mischievous meant maliciously or playfully annoying, causing harm or trouble and harmful or injurious. I equate to being evil. It is interesting what you said about fairies and church buildings, should tip us off to their true nature. - Don

I'm not surprised either anon, that it has helped the world get more overtaken with witchcraft. The perverted bible versions WATER everything down.

I don't think the news casters are shape-shifters but some be mind-control types with tons of alters? I could go with that.


I agree Don, the fairy doors are a way to invite in the demons. That's not a Christian dominant place sprinkling the fairy doors all over the place.


Well I went into the cryptozoology realm including Big Foot above. A lot of the 'animals" like that could be shape-shifted demons too. Why haven't they been able to haul a Yeti in or a Big Foot after all this time?

Some of the cases may be mistaken identities with the Chupacabras, a dog with manage, another type of animal where the hair fell out.

Yes a slang word for homosexuals is "fairy". I've heard it used too.

I'd stop eating the Keebler Elves cookies too due to the GMOs, who knows what else is in them. Those huge name brands watch out when it comes to food quality.

Bible Believer said...

Hi Anon, thanks for sharing the folklore. The fairies from what I know of folklore were definitely something to FEAR not to invite in. There was even one tale about how the fairies could take a baby away or turn it into a 'changeling"...[possess it?]That's one I used to read about. I have read Bettelheim and the real meaning of fairy tales a bit, there is a lot of dark stuff buried in them.

You are right many people feared them before...

Anonymous said...

Hi, me again with more folklore :)

The folklore of Changelings is very sad and horrible :( It was indeed said that fairies would steal healthy babies and replace them with sickly unhealthy fairy children. To get their own child back, women who thought they had a changeling baby would do horrible things to the child including abandoning them in forests, beating them, and burning them - they thought this would make the fairies come back to save their changeling and return the human child. There is a famous story of a man who believed his wife to be a changeling and she was burnt to death: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bridget_Cleary There are similarities between stories of changelings and demonic possession, with both subjected to horrible torture and ordeals at the hands of people who believed they were helping them.

It's quite likely that many of these children who were believed to be changelings were actually suffering from misunderstood conditions that made them look sickly or deformed, for example down's symdrome. It's very sad how superstitious people mistreated these poor children :(

Excellent article, Bible Believer, and much needed.

Nevertheless, there are only two sources of the supernatural: God or Satan. If the source is not from God, it is from Satan, no matter how appealingly it is presented. Demons will take any form human beings will accept. Indeed, they take cute, pretty forms such as fairies because they know human beings not schooled in the Bible are easily enticed by the supernatural, especially if it appears in a comely form.

Hi Anon, I agree about the folklore of the changelings being horrible, it is a belief that led to many evils. That is horrible about Bridget Clearly. Have you ever heard of "walk in's? I think that is the more modern word for changelings...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walk-in

All the attributes of demon possession are the same with this stuff but of course children even without demons were abused, I think most likely there were plenty of autistic, and many other conditions where the children were probably labeled as changelings and abused or hurt.
Down's Syndrome would definitely be on that list.

Thanks Anon.

Lisa,
In modern Wicca, the witches do seek after the "fairies", just google Wicca and fairy or better the other spelling faerie. I agree if something is not from God it is from Satan.
Demons do take beautiful forms--so called angels of light as well as ugly and revolting forms.

Fairies and all those other creatures are associated with magic,therefore unfortunately witchcraft does play a part because it is ungodly magic!!!
Sometimes we are a bit too naive to notice it...and can be affected without realising that it leads towards evil and authority is given to evil when we ignore God and focus on decorations in our gardens of gnomes, fairy houses and other such things!
Although I must confess that I loved just about all Disney movies when I was younger, as many kids do!

Keep believing in magic, and it will affect you. Keep naming the magical creatures, and they will come in. These creatures were around long before Christianity, or its precursors, and you all are idiots for provoking them.

Accept the things you dont understand and keep away from them. Elves have enough trouble with all the "development" humans cause as it is. Coming from someone who has a relative as a changling, YES, it is so the elf world and the human world can unify. It is more of an agreement a lot of parents in the years past have regreted due to their human nature and because of the nature of humans, they will try to hide their shame, and harm the elf baby. So sickening.
I like having duel worldsmanship. When I need to get away from how disgusting the human world can be, I disappear and go visit my elf relatives. But I have to come back and be a human still. It's kinda tough. Humans look at me oddly. Elves are sweet and accept that I am different from them and still love me. God works through and shows himself through MANY different ways. There is more to the world, then THE WORLD.

Bible Believer said...

Are you pulling our leg?

I don't belief in "elf world" unless it's hell or a false hell-brought vision.

I used to read Wiccan books where some did believe in the "little folk". If you are hanging out with them via "visions" of yours, you are in huge spiritual danger.

My sister & her husband were recently in the south of Ireland (we live in the north) & had to come home as they really got freaked out by the leprechaun situation - indeed there is a sign stating that the EU has protected the flora, fauna & leprechauns in that area - similar to whoever wrote about the Icelandic elves being protected. To cut a long story short, we now believe leprechauns are actually demons, & my sister & her husband were never as glad to get home in all their lives - God gave them warning verses that night to flee the area, Ireland is such a dark land, pray for us here!

I live in Australia and was invited to be part of a Brownie pack when I was about 8 years old. We had to do this 'twist me and turn me' incantation in front of a mirror on the ground representing the pool, and then there was the trip to the 'wise old owl'. I was more like Narnia than some kind of community group for children.

What was worse, our brownie 'packs' were formed under the names of spirits from Indigenous groups in the area. I distinctly remember I was in the 'Junjarin' group. Now as a Christian of many decades I have only recenly thought back on those ridiculously pretentious ceremonies we partook of. I have had to repent of my involvement in the occult however harmless it might have seemed. Some of the girls who ran those brownie/guide gruops had malicious and nasty personalities. I didn't stay for very long for that very reason.

You guys are all CRAZY and SERIOUSLY OVERREACTING! There is absolutely NOTHING dangerous about fantasy! And believe me there are absolutely NO such things as fairies, unicorns, pegases, brownies, elves, Santa Clause, Easter Bunny, wizards, magic, spells, trolls, werewolves, vampires, pixies, pixie dust, leprechauns, knomes, and whatever other fantasy creatures you may have named!

And they're NOT EVIL! They are IMAGINARY! Or are you not familiar with that word? Apparently not, considering you've basically condemned every imaginary being ever created in fiction!

If you want to be a big party-pooper and condem fantasy, then you're welcome to be a sour puss all you want, but KEEP YOUR RANTS TO YOURSELF! NO ONE IS GOING TO LISTEN TO YOU ANYWAY! GET A LIFE!

Ok so.. I know LOTS of mythology.. I know that the term 'fairy' isn't usually associated with demons or witchcraft. It is actually a Christian tale. Fairies (little beings), are too bad for heaven, but too good for hell.. It's not a demon, but a mischievous little fellow. Now, am I saying it's right? Not really. I am simply saying this, "TAKE IT AT FACE VALUE!". I see we are all Christians. I DISAGREE WITH ELF ON THE SHELF.. IT'S JUST PLAIN CREEPY.. But I want you to know, as Christians, we should look at myths for virtue, not to knock them. There are plenty of myths that can shed the Word of God, while not believing in it. As long as it does not remain Pagan, it is good.

I am not an independent Baptist.. I guess that's a false religion. A lot of people say, "Catholicism is like what the Pharisees were doing", but they make themselves sound like low-minded idiots. Independent Baptist are the true Pharisees who follow traditions of man, rather than God. The evil FALSE tradition of DRESSING IN DRESSED TO 'PLEASE' THE LORD! I AM GOING TO EXPOSE THE JW'S, INDEPENDENT BAPTIST, AND OTHER OCCULT FALSE RELIGIONS CREATED TO PLEASE MEN, RATHER THAN GOD!
YAWWEH SHALOM!

You people who stupidly think that imaginary creatures such as elves, Santa Clause, fairies, unicorns, pegases, brownies, pixies, trolls, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Chip and Dale, Alvin And The Chipmunks, Disney, talking animals, and every other form of Disney and fantasy creatures you can name and fantasy itself are evil are COMPETELY RETARDED!

There is absolutely NOTHING EVIL or WRONG or DANGEROUS about them! They are IMAGINARY! Guess what that means? NOT REAL! And things that are NOT real, are NOT DANGEROUS! It's all in your pathetically small, retarded brains!

Instead of focusing on protecting our children and warning other Christians against all the imaginary dangers, aka fantasy/Disney movies, you should be focusing, instead, on protecting your children from the REAL dangers out there! Like the dangers of guns and knives, school shootings, drugs, alcohol, drinking and driving, ect. The REAL dangers that could REALLY harm them! Not fantasy stories and movies that can't leave a scratch on your child's knee!

My point is, STOP WORRYING ABOUT FANTASY STORIES/MOVIES AND GET A LIFE! So what if your child wants to escape into a fantasy world every so often? It's actually good for them. Fantasy helps exercise the imagination and helps them grow in creativity.

And to those of you censoring your child's readership. . . It's actually hurting them! What are they going to think at school when all their friends are reading the latest fantasy novel or going to see the latest blockbuster-fantasy-novel-based movie and you say your child can't see said movie all because IT'S FATNASY?

They're going to be left out of a lot of conversations with their friends when they speak of the next great, best-selling fantasy novel. How do you think your child feels when all his/her friends are reading and talking about a great fantasy novel and all your child can tell them is "I'm not allowed to read it because I'm forbidden to read fantasy?" He will feel left out and excluded, even lonely and his friends may shun him for it.

Let me say this again. To those of you who are censoring your child's readership and movie-watching, (especially to the extreme,) you are HURTING THEM! NOT HELPING THEM!

Instead of banning all fantasy from your children, you should allow them to read and watch fantasy with Parental Guidance. Also, after reading or watching a fantasy book or movie, you should have a discussion with them and ask questions such as these.

1. What did you like about this movie/book?

2. What did you not like?

3. Is there anything in this book/movie that you agree with? If so, what is it? Why or why not?

4. Is there anything in this book/movie that you disagree with? If so what is it? If not, why?

5. Did you see any Christian principles in this movie/book? What were they?

6. Did the main character act in a godly way during the movie/book in this situation? Why or why not?

7. Do you think this character is a Christian? Why or why not?

Instead of critisizing and banning fantasy/Disney books/movies from your home and children, bring them in and use them as teaching moments for your children. Children grasp the spiritual nature better when reading about it in a fantasy world than hearing it directly from a preacher or Sunday school teacher.

Please read, watch, and THINK about fantasy/Disney BEFORE you ban. Thank you.

Great report. I once had a dream and saw a demon sitting in the window of my bathroom, this was soon after I married. I felt awake, it was vividly clear. It had pointed ears like a fairy, was small and creepy . Looked like a fairy, harmless, but I knew what it was without having ever seen one before in real life. It had the same pasty head and pointed ears like the elves and orchs in the Hobbit movie that later came out. The following day was complete destruction In my life. I married a troubled man with an evil hearted daughter and life has since been chaotic. I prayed against all the wickedness in this house and in my husband and his daughter but it seems something else always takes them back to chaos and evil. I never knew nor believed much in fairytales until I saw the wickedness behind them. I have no doubt now. The worst part is I live with a spouse and step child that inhabit the wickedness yet still claim to be believers. They don't live as Christians though. I never know when they are going to be nice or create cruel issues and evil mischief. I used to pray fervently. I'm worn out now. Please pray for my faith and deliverance for my spouse and stepdaughter.

People are so nonchalant about things that they shouldn't be brushing off. It's because people have been programed to look at demonic things as being harmless, that most of society is confused. There is a movie can labyrinth (subtitled, in Spanish). It pertrays a young girl going into a secret realm. There are fairies that come and get her. They look like demons with wings. Thats probably what they really look like. It someone put a tinkerbell dress on one of those creatures everyone would run in fear. So the enemy takes truth, mask it with lies, and makes it appealing to the senses.

There is a big difference between demons and fairies. HUGE, very large. . . here is the thing, I have a lot of experience with this and it was forced upon me. This whole war between Christians and the entire world and everything that lives in it or has lived in it in the past. I don't really care about any of this but apparently this issue cares about me. Fairies don't like hanging out with humans, otherwise we would all see them all the time. Fairies are afraid of humans, fairies, while highly prone to mischief are NOT witchcraft, that is completely different and has absolutely nothing to do with Fairies. I highly encourage anyone writing about this to be FACTUAL otherwise you just look like an idiot.

I get to say all this because I was asleep in my house one day and a drunk guy broke in and raped me and I kept the baby and I'm now a hard working, stigmatized single mother who was told by Christians all this help would be there for myself and my child going through all that and it was a lie and therefore I blame ALL Christians because likely you are all aware of someone in your life or area who has had a challenge and you said to them, "I'll pray for you." Which is Christian for, "I basically don't care." Therefore if we are going to get into the hierarchy of who is going to heaven and who isn't I'm going to be ages ahead of you on this one so sit down.

Communing with fairies isn't worshiping them. Playing games, reading books . . . that isn't inviting the devil that is inviting a different perspective and opinion of the world and giving the individual, especially highly manipulated children, the opportunity to make their faith their own. You are only afraid of this because you are weak in your faith not because you are strong. It doesn't take strength to shun, isolate, burn, torture, humiliate, gossip or bitch about something like this. It is bored weakness. How long did it take you to write this article huh? How many Syrian Refugee care packages could have been packed and shipped to help those in need?

The problem with the lot of you is that Jesus isn't going to come back until we don't need him anymore, he already suffered for his ideology and likely it would be worse this time and it would occur at the hands of the people who claim to believe in him most.

Super disappointed to share faith with people like you.

Listen, the elf on the shelf deal is nuts! Can nobody see this? Over and over again you hear hesitant adults say yeah they're kind of creepy but the kids love them and it's harmless... Isn't that house in works or isn't that how witchcraft works? You know my daughter told her mother that you had to unbind the hands of the elves for the magic to work... I mean, that's witchcraft at its most basic principle binding and unbinding. It's almost like the principality has set up this unbinding to utilize humanities authority that God gave us! I've been looking for someone to cover the elf on the shelf as witchcraft on the Internet and so far have only found your post. I thank God for you and I hope that he continues to lead you closer and closer to his heart.

I have a great idea, I'm going out Friday and Saturday and I'm going to get me a pile of cocaine, some Jack Daniels, and two hookers...after all come Sunday I can go to church, confess my sins and blame my actions on the fairies, elves and Mickey Mouse! Lol

If God cannot make you do good deeds unless YOU wanted to, on the flip side, Satan cannot cause you to sin...unless YOU want to! Satan merely provides you the menu to the smorgasbord

Dear friends:

I have read many of your interesting contributions and of course, as a Catholic and Christian (beacuse I do believe one is not apart from the other but every group has members proud and arrogant enough to believe they only hold the truth) I do respect your views on the faerie matter and thank all your comments. HOWEVER, I do believe that if someone, no matter his/her religion or creed, even if he or she doesn't 'believe' or know about our beloved Jesus (because it also happens), has a pure, loving heart and does good to his/her neighbour and leads a spiritual life, God will be with him/her and will protect him/her from all harm, because He is Almighty. So, instead of getting too worried about if some innocent (or fooly, or ignoratn) person finds some comfort or happiness into watching a film, setting up a little cute door in his/her garden tree, or eating a forsaken brand of biscuits, I would look more into what kind of example the person in question is setting in terms of leading a Christian life (i.e. giving to the poor (material or of heart and mind), being generous with everyone (family, no family, brothers and sisters in religion (or not), enemies (as Jesus said we should aim to do), working for the community, avoiding destroying our environment, making steps to be a better person in every aspect of his/her life, etc), because we may learn something good from it, and also, because maybe, and just maybe, God is also watching over us, seeing how busy we are critisizing someone in the little, futile and not doing our own homework of love to the world. If we are truly doing and following His commandments, we should not fear for the world (as He watches it too with all His love), nor for our loved ones (as He hears our prayers and sees our love and good deeds for them), not for ourselves (As he loves us and takes care of us and protects us of any and every kind of harm there may be in the world, even all things we still don't understand)...

Proudness and arrogance are also sins, and we fall into them more often than we think because of our ignorance... As my mom uses to tell me: Less words and more good deeds, as your gay neighbour could be closer to God than yourself, as only He knows his/her true heart, and your sight could be deceived by appereances. We are no one to judge, compared to God, and he certainly has not asked us to judge in His place, only to be kind and loving to all we can.

Love to all. Blessings to all and thanks for reading.

I am an artist and I've been sculpting Faerie houses and doors for some time now. Recently, however, I've questioned the word "faerie/faery/fairy" and it's entire meaning. My conclusion is this,...fairy tales have been around for hundreds of years. But the doors and houses, whether made for decorative purposes or used to summon creatures, can lead away from God. My focus is squarely on the Father and His perfect Will. I've decided to continue to make my art and rename it. Miniature doors and houses is a much better name. It just may give me an opportunity to share Christ with someone else.

I know that the situation of fairies/fantasy/Disney has a lot of arguments. Well since I'm at the eastern part of the world the folklore of fairies are alien to me but I have read a lot of fantasy books to get in touch with these characters. As some have already said, that these are absolutely harmless, I have to prove you wrong. This because even I used to think so and believe me I ,myself was a great adorer of books and of anything fantasy related too although my parents had slight disagreements. But in the long period I just realized that this habit of reading had affected me in ways I don't understand. To begin with, the language used had me affected, and it was like I couldn't survive without reading at least one of them! To be precise, I got addicted that even it weakened my relationship with God! I know that many could have criticisms against this opinion as I wasn't reading for a fixed amount of time. But the content in these book itself lured me into their world! And guess what? It grabbed my studying hours too! I knew I was walking in the wrong path but still I couldn't stop this psychological addiction.
Book :

Galatians - 4 Verse : 3 Even so we , when we were children , were in bondage under the elements of the world.
Book :

Galatians - 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free , and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.

But Praise The Lord! After the spiritual Baptism, my mind is longer a slave to this addiction. I hope that my simple kinda testimony would help any who reads it! God Bless!

Fairies are nothing more than nature's angels. The OT is full of crap like that. I believe in what Christ taught, not a bunch of BS made up by self-important men. Besides, the god of the OT is not God - he was a more tech advanced being posing as the real God, who Jesus DID come to teach us about. Stay in your fear, and you will be left behind.

Fear-based. Fairies are just nature's angels.

I'm not in fear from the little doors and stuffed animals. Can't anyone think about why things are done?

Hannah Collings said...

Interesting article. Sad to read so many negative comments, but not surprising on such a topic. I haven't had much firsthand experience with this, except I would honestly say that I always felt an uneasy sick feeling with some of the fairytale my parents read me as a child - long before I even understood anything about this. My husband however has done reading into some of this recently, and we were talking about how although we are not to fear these things as Christians (because our God is stronger and has overcome evil) we should not put our guard down and allow anything prohibited to be part of our lives. We have protection if we are walking with Him. I think God gives convictions to each family maybe at different points along their walk - I have some Christian friends who embrace various books/films/games etc that i would not be comfortable with. That doesn't make them not Christians though, and whilst I wouldn't judge them, if there was an opportunity for discussion on the subject I would be happy to share my convictions just like in this article because I care about them, and I would definitely want them to share things with me that maybe I need to understand and see more clearly. Faith. Not fear, and not foolishness.

"Superstitious people mistreated these poor children". Personally i think its sad that the puritans burbed "accused" witches at the stake for having a mole or freckle... i really think its sad how the christians slaughtered buffalo in the west in an attempt to STARVE the native americans for refusing to convert.. you christians are so boring. SO boring in fact that you stole your holiday ideas from the pagans. You just cant handle the fact that your mind wonders about the things out there... shame your imaginary friend tells you not to think about things like that.. you know.... the one who told joshua to slaughter all women and children in jericho.

So, I am a devoted Christian and Love my Lord with all my heart, soul, spirit. I believe Jesus is Lord and Christ is God's only begotten Son, and our only way to Heaven to love Him even more.

I just recently, started a Fairy gardens, cute doors on trees etc., thinking it only as a "hobby". Recently, even bought my grandchildren Fairy Doors to put in their rooms to enhance their imagination. I only thought of this as pretend- nothing else. But, now I wonder where this idea, in my mind, even came up?

Does everything that we can use our imagination- be called evil? I truly would like your thoughts on this. I would never do anything intentionally to break the heart of my Heavenly Father.

Please- just a yes or no answer and a short comment. Do you believe fairies are evil? Don- what makes you think we are inviting demons in with a door?

Bible Believer said...

I am against burning of witches. People who do that do not follow scripture.

John 16:2 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.

Also I'm against killing buffalo and wasting food. That is evil.


I don't celebrate Christmas or Easter

Last anon, not everything imaginative is evil, but think about where the fairy legends are rooted in. WHY fairy doors?

God will know your intentions of your heart but consider the WHY of it all.

Becky said...

Fairies and goblins etc are all deceptions from satan they seem so cute but do have demonic tie ins.
I once received a fairy book with a lovely little necklace when I was about 10. That book scared me to this day. The book said if you don't do certain things for these "fairies" the sorts of punishments they do to you etc...had sort of things to say to birds to invite in these fairies and I spoke to a bird which didn't move then flew off. I once heard a story or myth of a man or woman who apparently took a picture of one and the fairy looked demonic and cursed the person. The bird thing was horrifying I kept saying "no no no!" After i spoke to the bird. i was terrified these "fairies" would come. I am not joking about any of this and yes it was for children. Fairies are tied into magic as well like demonic Disney and Tinkerbell. Magic is forbidden whether "good or bad" all christians know there is no 'good magic". All these creatures have evil trasitions...trolls under bridge...evil fairies..evil mermaids etc. Just google and you get evil imagery and evil research these things and they have evil origins and witches use them
The smurfs are kind of sketchy to me too..they look like gnomes, I always kind if thought gnomes were kinda iffy. I do believe they have occult undertones. I don't trust any of these creatures now...I am wanting to get rid of all my tinkerbell stuff I used to love her

Thank you for your comment! It makes sense...

LovingJesus said...

Bible Believer and Anonymous: I have been reading your comments on Fairies and it has brought so many memories back from my childhood. I was 8 years old at the time and I remember that my mother used to get our toys at the Salvation Army, because she was legally blind and trying to raise 6 children on her own. When we got our Christmas gifts, there were always these elves in them, dressed in these blue, green or red silky, shiny suits. At the time I really liked the dolls, but after I turned 8, I started to have these open visions, {While I was awake, during the day} I would go into this place where ugly gargoyle, elf type things would dance on my window shade, screaming at me, "Why did you do that?" and then that very night I would have this absolutely terrifying nightmare, where I would end up in the middle of this huge field with these creatures and a huge wheel with numbers on it. The creatures told me that they were going to spin the wheel and if it went past the number 200, my mother would die. Of course, they spun the wheel, but in this dream, these things would shove me into this gigantic black cannon and shoot me into the sky, where I would break into millions of shiny, silver discs and I would wake up and be screaming so hard, and so loud that I would hyperventilate and pass out. I had this dream for the next 18 years, I turned 26 and then this psychologist took me to Charlottsville,Va where he said that he knew a dream interpreter. When I talked to the guy and told him the dream, he said that it was about me wanting to kill my mother, because of the terrible things that she had done to me. Well, to say the least! I don't remember ever wanting to do that, but I stopped having the dream! Even though I didn't have the visions or dream anymore, for the next 18 years I was haunted by the details of it and couldn't get it out of my head, so about three years ago, I called this Pastor that I know, who interprets biblical dreams and he told me that it was a purely demonic dream and that Satan had been trying to keep me away from God, by making me angry at Him for the horrible things that He allowed me to go through with my family. After I contacted the Pastor, I haven't been thinking about the details of this nightmare since and I also had this Chaplain named John McTernan pray for me for over 2 hours, because he said that I had never been healed of a broken heart due to the events in my life. While he was praying for me, I started to shake uncontrollably, I couldn't stop crying and then I felt this deep, dark, black cloud lift up off of me and for the first time in my life I felt peace! I believe that these elves did something to me and whatever was in them used the events of my life to cause me to have the visions and dreams and also to have these rage attacks all the time, where I saw nothing, but red. I hurt people, because of it and now, though I get angry at times, it's nothing like it used to be. I am finally free in the Lord and long to go home to Him! There were other events in my life, but I would have to write a book to tell of all of them and for the most part, the first 12 years of my life are a blank!

very very very interesting ..... that a person that can type (which suggests a level of human intelligence, but this could have been written by a very smart dog... who knows?) can write so much nonsense

Bible Believer said...

Just calling something nonsense is not presenting an argument. Even then if you are so rational minded and these people making fairy doors are, why are they focused on fantasy and fantasy creatures so much? A smart dog probably wonders what humans smoked to make doors too tiny for it to pass through.

Lots of people seem kind of angry over these creatures. Telling me off, for people focusing on them. I find that kind of interesting.

Anonymous said...

Okay! So here is the thing. You have to also consider these facts. One if you read in Revelations 9:7-8 then look up fairies their is a either a video or pictures (can't remember which) of little mummified creatures in a glass case and above their heads are little crowns. Fairies are most often times described as little humanlike creatures with sharp teeth. Same description as in that part of revelations. Most would argue this fact by saying this is a metaphor. Which it may very well be. Others would say something along the lines of "God didn't say He created these things so they must be demonic." One let's really think about that. If we are to go off a book translated by man. That means dinosaurs didn't actually exist yet we have bones and fossils. Yet in Genesis in the KJV version it says "And He created the great monsters of the seas" and the McArthur version says "And He created the great whales of the sea." If God is suppose to be the truth why are there 2 different translations to the same book. A book that even it says everything in it was not from these men but from God. In fact the original Translation is suppose to say "And He created the great dragons of the sea." Based on their own perceptions they saw dragons could also be translated as monsters and thought "well there aren't any great dragons wondering around so they must mean great sea monsters." and the McArthur people saw there were these great huge whales so they went with that. Furthermore you need to think about this. These people at that time didn't know about bioluminescence in animals, if they saw the glowing fish at the bottom of the sea they wouldn't assumed they were demons to, so when they saw these little humanlike creatures emitting light, they assumed they were magical and therefore thought they were from demons. Much like these churches saw people practicing medicine using the plants God gave us to do such things with and burned them at the stakes for being witches when they were not.

Christmas is not based on paganism
Halloween is and yet I do not see anyone saying anything about that.
Christmas at its core is based upon the Bible its self. We do not realise that it is the imagination that is being blamed for actions of witchcraft and the idea of Christmas. To believe in something that does not exist cannot be seen smelt touched etc. Is to this world nonfiction.
Was not the success of this world because of the many versions of Christianity? Which is based upon the Bible and the belief of Christ?
How then can something such as nonfiction create such a great and huge people of civility?
It is not nonfiction that we need to worry about but how we use it. I do not believe in the darkness so, I choose to not celebrate Halloween. I believe in Christ so, I will celebrate Christmas.
It is an event not a belief. Christmas is the greatest time in human history.

CSL was a Christian and author of the seven books of Narnia. He is connected with the author of Lord of the Rings which had elves in it.
This is good nonfiction because it shows an idea of a story in likeness of the Bible scriptures. Example.
The stone table (death) was turned at the Lions (Christ's) arising. Having been conquered by Christ.
You have to have a level of understanding of what it means
Truth in the form of nonfiction is hard to see.

Demons are spiritual. Satan was an angel once beautiful like any other then be rebelled thinking he was better then god. He was cast out and some of his beauty fell on women which is the reason why he hates them more then men. When someone saus something that hurts you it is he that is seeking to you and makes you sin by you responding to that person in kind. What harm cane Satan do to you by being in your dreams? His goal is to make you sin and in that he harms you ( the very one he hates more) and God. That is his goal

It depends on how you look at it. Nonfiction can be used for good as well as bad saying elves are evil is too far of a judgment . It's like saying vitamin s are good yet to take more then regular is bad for you it's the same as anything
Watching TV slot is bad because that much of watching zombies is not good for you. Saying these things are bad is not right. It's the habitual idea of over and over that is bad

Anonymous said...

I get how these things are tied to pagan practices but we need to keep in mind that the devil will only take form where there is form to be taken. I agree that we as christians should divert ourselves from our neighbors and steer clear from items and displays that may invite evil spirits(demons). It's very scary to take a step back and see these traditions as originally pagan practices. Though, i think that these things like fairies and gnomes etc. can be used to make a point. For example, Santa Claus, It's a story told to children so that they behave. Instead of making the child believe it to absolute truth, we should use that story as a lesson that only good children get rewarded for their good behavior.
Other comments: If my mom got an elf on a shelf, that thing will not escape fiery judgement, I'm burning wood faster than the salem witch trials. Same for anything seemingly occultic, cant take chances.

I did not know that. And since all this stuff is "man-made" fairies coyld be good too. And btw, Disney made the bad magic and fairies and turned it good. If fairies are bad because of their backgrounds origins, Cinderella and The Sleeping Beauty is evil too because those stories are scary. And with all magical creatures and princesses gone because of their origins, there's no more childhood stories to tell to your kids so they won't be boring stuck up brats-there childhood is boring. But i do agree that the elves watching over kids and fairy doors is taking it too far.

Justice League said...

I did not know that. Fairies aren't evil. You can't discriminate things that are "automatically bad" because of there origins. In that case,we should get rid of princesses and superheroes because their origins or because they are supernatural. That's ruining everyone's childhood and turning them into non-creative brats!!! Disney makes the boring,scary and witchcrafty fairytales into something good(and the villians who use witchcraft like Jafar and the shadowman were defeated) so people should stop criticizing it. But i do believe people putting up fairy doors and elves that watch over your kids is taking it too far!

This is an interesting site. I have been reading a series of books - Missing 411 - written by a former police detective (David Paulides) who has cataloged hundreds of bizarre vanishings of people from all walks of life in wilderness areas, including national parks. Many of these locations are linked to native American land, including place names with 'Devil' associated with them. There is no doubt that evil stalks the wilderness. Stay safe, stay alive and leave the occult where it belongs, outside in the dark.

I personally think that by perceiving one's faith and celebrating one's ancestor's beliefs isn't witchcraft I'm sorry to say but that's that! For one to be judging another, they first should sweep there own doorstep and then cast that stone. And to be labeling things witchcraft I must say witch's got burned at the stake for selling there soul to the devil directly not by celebrating fairy tales or anything such. For ye without sin cast the first stone, every one is guilty in these regards. Even the saint's used certain entity's in to a account when they converted are pagan ancestors to Christianity look at The Book of Kells. So to say that all this is witchcraft then even the saint's that converted PAgan to christian would be guilty. So what now?

Very interesting article. I think whether you believe fairies or elves to be strictly imaginative or not, there is something strange with people following these trends. Fantasy is deceptive. Folks that spend too much time within it are not living in the truth. It is strange we allow ourselves to be surrounded with fantasy, mythical creatures and magic, even though most people deny it's existence. People almost crave it. I've seen with this can do to people. There is something dark about it even though it seems innocent. Even if you don't believe in it's authenticity, you can be pulled in to the point you lose touch with what is good, bad or real. I know people who have dropped out of school or quite their jobs only to replace it with a fantasy world. How many people do you know who spend most of their waking hours playing video games, watching tv shows or even reading books filled with mythical stories and magical characters? World of War Craft? Harry Potter? Frozen anyone? These examples are extremly addictive to the point where people lose themselves to obsession. Some folks even worship this stuff! They start collecting all its characters, spend hours drawing fan fiction, even grown adults dress up in full costume! It's totally creepy and no one sees it. This stuff starts really early. Toys and media depicting fantasy and magic are largely directed at children. People spend to much time worrying about statistically unlikely scenarios like school shootings and pedafiles lurking in the bushes that they completely miss another danger lurking in the living room. That being the television, toys and books that depict this idea of a blissful magical escape to another world. Either way, it's deceptive and does not bring anyone, man or child, closer to God.

Bible Believer said...

As I wrote in the above why is this stuff so important? Take the scientific atheists, why do they even like the idea of fairies, gnomes and the rest of it? I agree about the fantasy stories, some are totally immersing themselves in these worlds. I agree a lot of it is seen as a blissful escape. I like to read too, and read some fiction and understand movies, etc, but why does so much have this fantasy/magical element to it, when you strip it right down, the thing that entices is this idea of powerful magical beings, that give you power or allow you to use theirs. I like some comics, etc, so I get that piece, I like real life stories in visual form, but the magic, fantasy stuff, I never liked. The super-hero stuff too is like "gods" updated Greek gods partheon. Would kids be boring without Cinderella? After all even there a fairy god mother rescues her [not God, or escaping an abusive household of her own accord]. She has to wait for the glass slipper and the prince. I have read books making studies of fairy tales:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Uses_of_Enchantment

Not all their influences are "good". The holidays no one questions, why do people put faces on the front of pumpkins, the history is not good and the real meanings. The "meanings" of fairy tales are there too but they do not match the meaning or messages say in biblical parables. I remember all the focus on magic, and remember thinking when my mother got angry at me for owning Wicca books, well you took me to all these movies and the rest where "magic" was seen as something good.
