Teen playing Charlie Charlie
Thousands of videos have been posted to social media of people playing the 'Charlie Charlie Challenge.' But is it more than a spooky game?

The “Charlie Charlie Challenge” is growing in popularity as teens upload videos to social media of them trying to call on an evil spirit. The trend involves putting two pencils in a cross position on top of a sheet of paper with “yes” and “no” written on it. In an effort to “summon” a Mexican demon said to be named Charlie, participants then say, “Charlie, Charlie are you here?” and wait for the pencils to move.

Curiosity about ghosts and demonic spirits is no new phenomenon. From horror movies like Candy Man to Ouija boards and the folklore legend of Bloody Mary—generations have experimented with occult practices and it doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon. But, are people playing with fire? Does this open the door for actual demonic forces to enter someone’s life? These answers from Billy Graham help make sense of the issue:
