  • Charlie Charlie Challenge: 10 Reasons You Don’t Want To Play

Charlie Is Real and You Want Nothing To Do With Him

The internet is abuzz about the Charlie Charlie Challenge. It’s a simple, homemade version of the Ouija Board game. To play you draw two lines on a piece of paper in the form of a cross. Write the words yes and no inside four squares. Lay a pencil on one line and another pencil on top of the first pencil along the other line. Participants repeat the words “Charlie, Charlie are you here?” Frequently the pencil moves. The “game” continues with the participants asking yes or no questions.

Many people who don’t believe in the supernatural think this is an innocent game like this article in the Mirror Newspaper.

It’s real and spiritually dangerous. Here are 10 reasons no one should play the Charlie Charlie Challenge.

10 Reason Why Playing the Charlie Charlie Challenge is A Bad Idea

  1. Spirit beings are real. They were created by Jesus. Colossians 1:16.
  2. Evils spirits rebelled against God and still oppose God. Isaiah 14:12-15, Revelation 12:4
  3. Evil spirits are deceitful and hide their true intentions. 2 Corinthians 11:14
  4. Evil spirits can get a foothold and control a person’s life. Ephesians 4:25-32
  5. Evil spirits torment people. Matthew 8:28-34, 1 Samuel 16:14-23
  6. Evil spirits can control non-Christians against their will. Mark 9:14-29
  7. Evil spirits can put lying thoughts in our minds to turn us from God. 2 Corinthians 11:3
  8. Satan and his evil spirit followers want to destroy you. 1 Peter 5:8-9, John 8:44
  9. God forbids people from talking to demons. Leviticus 19:31
  10. God tells us to resist demons. Ephesians 6:11-18

There are other reasons I could give based upon what people say who have played the game. The problem is for every person who says something bad happened there are others who say the opposite. That’s why the only thing that matters is what God’s Word says. Look up the verses above.

Bad things don’t happen to everyone who plays the Charlie Charlie Challenge. Demons are smart enough to hide their activity just enough to discredit people who believe the Bible, like me.

Do you want to be the one that something bad happens to? If something bad is happening to you and you want help leave a note below and I’ll get back with you to help you resist.

Here are four other posts I have written about Satan and demons and how they attack Christians.

  • I have a very important question, if you are around people that are playing the #CharlieCharlieChallenge and your not playing does it still affect you and your life? Can someone please answer this question for me?

    • Hi Jasmine,

      I wish I could give you a simple yes or no answer but I can’t. If you’re in the room when people are playing it could affect you. That isn’t 100 percent certain. The people who are playing are definitely opening themselves up to contact with the evil spirit. Just being in the room doesn’t mean that will happen. Evil spirits do seem to attach themselves to people and places, like specific rooms.

      The only time I was around some friends playing with the Ouija board (which is the same thing as #CharlieCharlieChallenge) I watched them and nothing happened to me. I was probably in 8th or 9th grade. It was only one time. I think the more time a person is exposed to demons the greater the chance they will affect your life. I would say that if they do it again tell them that you’re not interested and leave the room until they are done.

      I will pray for you Jasmine that God does protect you.


  • If you watch the youtube videos of the challenge do you get affected because ive watched loads of videos because I was worried…

    • Hi Olicia,

      you probably won’t be affected if you only watch and don’t participate. I believe they really are demons but they seem to need an opportunity or open door to affect people. That happens by playing the game and also trying to talk to them in other ways. I have seen a few, maybe six or seven YouTube videos and was not affected. I haven’t seen anyone play it in person and if someone tried to play around me I would leave. I think you can tell it isn’t good. I’d stop watching just to be safe.

      I will pray for you now that God protects you from any personal attacks.


    • Hi Cadence, it may mean a couple of things. First, there may have been no demons near you when his name was called. Second, if you are a Christian he may not answer you because you have the Spirit of God within you defending you and so he didn’t want to interact with you. Our God may have protected you and not let him talk to you. Whatever the reason I believe you are fortunate he didn’t answer. It can open you up to hearing from him when you aren’t playing the game.

    My journey of faith started when I was nine years old when I realized that Jesus died and rose again to pay for my sins. At the age of thirteen I felt the call of God on my life for ministry.

    I have been fortunate to work in the marketplace for over ten years and in full-time Christian ministry for over thirty years.

    My passion is to teach God's Word in such a way that it is easy to understand and so that God uses it to bring about life change in those who hear it.

    It is my greatest joy to see God work through me to produce fruit for His glory!
