First it was Blue Whale challenge, now the devil is in the Momo app
Suicide rates spiked the last few years, and social media apps are part of the reason. First, there was the mobile app, “Blue Whale Challenge,” responsible for at least 130 deaths. Now there’s “Momo Challenge.” It was the cause of death of teenagers from Mexico, Argentina, Russia, Spain, Columbia, according to The Sun UK.
The phone app is a 50-days challenge that involves self-harm, watching demonic horror movies, and suicide towards the end of the challenge. Tweens and teenagers are the usual victims.
It’s similar to the Blue Whale app that also suggests the participant commit suicide through a series of mind-conditioning challenges. Momo content added to the Minecraft game, according to Fox News.

How Momo leads to suicide and what to do
1. Momo app sends depressing photos.
The app is linked to depression and insomnia, which makes sense when you expose yourself to demonic images that depict death and sadness. The Bible tells us to focus on what is right and look straight ahead to what is good (Proverbs 4:25).
2. The app hacks private information.
Also called “doxing,” the app’s strategy is to blackmail participants. It forces them to obey. The result is extreme anxiety. The Bible tells us not to be anxious about anything and allow God’s peace to guard our hearts. (Philippians 4:6-7)

3. Momo challenges you to commit suicide.
The mind is conditioned by showing depressing photos and suggestive suicide methods like jumping from a rooftop (Everyday parent). Mind-condition into depression, the gamer commits suicide. The Bible tells us Satan seeks to devour; he is the god of this world (2 Cor. 4:4).
Know who you are in Christ! There is power in the name of Jesus, and demons are no match even at the sound of His name (Luke 10:17). Jesus will return to save those who belong to God, but the question is, do you know the real Jesus and His promises?
