Devil in my living room

Hello Everyone:

I come to you with a matter thaT is weighing heavy on my heart and mind. I will try to make a long story short:

My Native American granny raised me with her on the reservation. My mama sucked, I hear.

Although Cherokee, we were southern Baptists and a church bus would come and get us.

Now, to the part Im so concerned with.

My granny is/was my everything. She is gone now (died when I was 15 but I made it, did ok) But now I dont have her enormous hand to guide me.

I still talk to her all the time though. I dont care what people think. She tends to 'mess with me' in a way that I know Im not alone on this earth. But always VERY sure not to spook me. Just lil small things. Ok, now Im rambling.


My granny always told me:

'Baby, near the end to times, the devil will be sitting in all of our living rooms'.

Nothing less, nothing more. Just that. Does anyone know of this saying? Is it in the Bible?

I always assumed it was the god-awful television but some things have recently happened in my home that has made me believe a TV, as terrible as it can be... is NOTHING compared to the hurt a computer can cause. Pure evil.

I would appreciate someone talking to me about this if they know of this 'verse' or ideology? Or if it was just a way my granny felt. Course, we didnt even have a TV or a toilet so I dont know what she meant.

Hurting over here and about ready to throw all the laptops into the pool and MAYBE allow family members to be online an hour a day under direct supervision on the desktop.



If there are any elders or anyone out there than can talk to me about this, I would appreciate it so much. Thank you!

I want to reply, but the irony is killing me! OK here we go, hold on now.

How do you know you're not entering into a conversation with the devil himself?

When you are protecting your family, you really have to go with your gut instinct.

Computers are tools, they do not themselves have the power to be right or wrong (well not the ones we have in our living rooms at the moment) and a bad workman always blames his tools!

Personally I'd go with getting shot of the TV. We have no choice as to what is put on it, we only have the choice not to watch... How many people make the choice to stay away from the idiot box and really do.

So you know not of such a reference in the bible? Correct?

You replied yet you didnt reply to anything I asked. Unfortunately for me. Maybe someone else will be familiar with what I am speaking of.

Nonetheless, thanks.


Im not here to 'enter into any conversation', with or without the devil. Im here for a source. A passage concerning this matter.

Can you help me there?

You know that in the last days All would worship the image of the beast, whose names are not in the Lamb's Book of Life.
I think the 'chip' will have holographic capabilities, allowing the user to interact with the beast directly!

I am also part cherokee, on both sides.
I just got a chance to go (for the first time) to the Cherokee, N.C. reservation.

Sure... When I have a problem I reach straight for the 1800 year old storybook.

Try Matthew. Or of course Revelations (there's a fair bit about the dark side in that bit)

I've never gone to church much, but: I can has google pls?

Thank You Clearskies for your response. So you too have been told of this by your elders?

How was your visit!? I havent been back since I left at 15, Im now uhm older hehe. We will leave it at that.

Dont plan to go back as there is nothing for me there any longer since my granny passed.

Was a rough life back then, not anything I wish to relive but I hear things have REALLY changed in 15-20 yrs. Including indoor plumbing!

Even a casino, that blows my mind.

If you would care to elaborate more, I would love to hear what you have to say.

I'm sorry if I confused you. I'm not part of the nation.
My husband and I were going to register years ago and changed our minds.
I wasn't raised around any Elders. Just my Momma and step-dad.
A friend of mine just moved there about a year ago.

It was great! I got to hear the native language(for the first time) and we were there for the Christmas parade!
Also, I'm in my late 30's.

Have a blessed weekend!!!
