The Power of Words (Guest Post)

25 Nov

This short post has special meaning for me. It is submitted by a 15 year old with great insight into the potentially dangerous social phenomenon known as “bullying”. The school district that we live in has seen a teen suicide due to bullying, and this post was sent to me by a boy who is currently experiencing the same, to the point that he considered self-harm. As you well know, the satanic agenda is to attack the families and especially children, and it seems that lately the agenda has been amped up to new levels as we hear of more youth violence, promiscuity and bullying. Please read the words of this post and pray for the Author of it, as well as other children who may be in the same predicament.

What is making kids of this current generation so mean? Why does it seem like these past few years have been the “dark ages” of the world? Lately, the commercials (even Christmas commercials!) have been darker, movies, TV shows, they’ve all just been dark. Clearly, the entertainment industry has a huge impact on the human race. The youth of this generation have become more mean. We could, perhaps, trace the roots back to the parents… but what about the media? In the midst of this darkness, one of the problems people struggle with is bullying. Although there is so many variations of bullying, the most common seem to be verbal and cyber bullying. Clearly, the tongue has a lot of power, as the bible says:

For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:
But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. (James 3:7)

If we could all be honest, we all have said something hurtful to somebody. A lot of times, we don’t mean it. We, as people, say a lot of things out of spite. We have to realize that some people are naturally more sensitive to what we say than others, and that some people pretend not to be hurt, while taking it all in and bottling it up.

There seems to be a lot of people walking the Earth full of anger and rage. There’s people who seek vengeance on those who have wronged them, and some who would rather take the problems out on themselves through self harm. Seeking vengeance will not put you in any better of a position than you already are, and the Bible speaks of that.

Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. (Romans 12:19)

Be blessed.

(40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. – Matthew 25)

    I definitely want to follow up with a comment after re-reading the post because after a second read I had tears in my eyes. To know that there are children out here who have been tormented to such extremes, yet continue to smile on the outside is heart-wrenching. I cannot understand people who take this issue for granted, or who brush it off with a “tsk” saying that boys needs to “man up” or “stop being so sensitive”. Tell me, what is “sensitive” about not wanting to be called gay (when you’re not) or ugly, or stupid or poor, raggedy, etc. Many of these things are out of kids control, and for others to target those things is just insane. Parents, be vigilant…know what your children are doing, what they’re watching, playing and reading. As the blog author stated, the MEDIA is communicating these messages to our children, under the direction of the god of the media (airwaves). Just remember….this could be your child writing this article.

    God bless you!

    Very great post. I pray that God places a hedge around you and shield your ears from what offers say. From the content of this post I pray that you continue to write/blog as more teens need to hear your story and know that they too can overcome their horror story.

    Rev 12:10 Then I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, he who accuses them before our God day and night. 11″And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death.
