What the hell is wrong with KFC? If you rearrange those same seven words in that rhetorical question you’ll get the answer to that question: “Hell is what is wrong with the KFC!”
Lilith is a real demon. A powerful one currently very active in our world and culture. Playing games that involve demons is not something you should be encouraging with your kids. Especially demons who fuel lust and seduce people into sexual immorality.
Lilith is first mentioned in ancient Babylonian texts as a class of winged-female demons THAT ATTACKS PREGNANT WOMEN AND INFANTS. From Babylonia, the legend of “the lilith” spread to ancient Anatolia, Syria, Israel, Egypt and Greece. In this guise—as a wilderness demoness—she appears in Isaiah 34:14 among a list of nocturnal creatures who will HAUNT THE DESTROYED KINGDOM OF EDOM. This is her only mention in the Bible.
Lilith’s controversial character is mostly talked about in Jewish folklore. Her name does not appear in the Torah, but is mentioned several times in the midrashic text which regards Lilith as Adam’s wife before Eve, taken from his ‘rib’.
“Over the centuries Lilith became known in the Jewish legends as a succubus demon who copulated with men during their sleep and strangled newborn babies! In recent years, the feminist movement has reclaimed her dark character by ignoring the killing stuff and re-interpreting the patriarchal texts that portray her as a dangerous female demon in a more positive light.” [See: “…].
Lilith was the great ‘seductress’ who brought to Satan the destruction of God’s most precious creation – newborns which she created in sexual immorality solely to destroy:
“Lilith is said to kill infants and rob children of their life. It is believed that male children after birth might become a target of Lilith’s wrath for eight days and females for twenty days. Lilith mostly stole the lives of children at night. She would spare those who wore the amulets of the angels……Lilith was known to rule side by side with Satan. She did not care about the aftermath she left in her wake after seducing men and killing children..” [See: “…/….]
