Christian musician Bryann Trejo made viral waves on social media when he livestreamed walking out of The Addams Family movie. “Growing up we watched Addams Family and it was like costume comedy,” he said walking through the movie theater lobby. “The Addams Family right here, it’s inappropriate.”
We are inviting intercessors to SING and PRAISE the Psalms from noon on October 30th until noon on November 1st. Over this 48-hour period, we are inviting intercessors to open their Bibles as much as they can to sing psalms and hymns located in God’s Word. Besides the 150 recorded Psalms, there are great songs of deliverance in Exodus 15, Deuteronomy 32, and 2 Samuel 22. We believe that our corporate songs of praise have great power to confuse the enemy, nullify demonic schemes, and clear the way for the King of Glory to come in! Will you join in? Leave a comment.
“The first thing that startled me was that they had the voice of a demon growling,” Trejo said. “Second, the little boy in the cartoon started crawling up the wall, possessed. Strike three was when they pulled out the Ouija board.” At that point, Trejo and his wife walked out of the movie. “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. I know the kids are probably mad. But it’s our job to protect them from this stuff.”
Trejo has faced much mockery on Facebook for standing up for Christianity. Over 100,000 people shared the video and there are thousands of snarky comments. The most troubling are the ones from “Christians” claiming that he is wrong and has “weak faith” for not subjecting his children to demonic themes. Others insist that demons can’t hurt them.
This is bad theology and the majority of Christian faiths are at fault for not teaching what the Bible has to say on the issue. Demonic possession and influence is well-documented both in the Bible and through the Church. The Catholic Church still employs exorcists and they are so overwhelmed by the need for their services that they are currently recruiting more. “It’s only in recent years that the demand [for exorcisms] has risen exponentially,” Father Pat Collins said. He added that anyone denying this is “out of touch with reality.”
Recently, I’ve noticed within Christian communities a lack of concern for demonic influence including allowing kids to play with Ouija boards, consult mediums, and adults taking children to demonic-themed Halloween events. Jesus dealt with the demons in one way only— rebuke and cast out immediately. He did not entertain them, speak to them, listen to their arguments or in any other way appease them or use them for entertainment. He sent them to hell. He then gave His disciples the power to cast them out in his name.
To deny demonic possession and influence as a Christian is to deny the teachings of Christ. If demons do not exist, then Jesus was a madman. There’s no in-between here. Christians who deny the existence of Satan and his minions of chaos are not Christians at all, but heretics and unbelievers.
As for me and my family, we will avoid The Addams Family movie and “hold fast to what is good,” and “abstain from every evil” (1 Thessalonians 5:21-22)..
On a positive note, Trejo is making Christian rap that’s actually fun to listen to (and my kids agree, which is the real test). That’s rare.
