A number of strange characters appear in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles episodes and comic books. Coming from the notorious Foot Clan, a ninja-like enemy organization that is opposed to the Ninja Turtles, the Foot Mystics use magic power to fight the Turtles and their sensei, a mutant rat named Splinter.
According to TurtlePedia, a website dedicated to the Ninja Turtles franchise, the Foot Mystics can fight on an "astral plane." In the the TMNT animated episode titled "Bad Day," the Foot Mystics use "black magic" to attack the Ninja Turtles on an "astral plane." ("Foot Mystics")
The Foot Mystics can also be controlled by a magic object called the "Heart of Tengu." It looks like a blue stone encased in a type of metal holder. By way of this "artifact," a character called Karai can control these "Mystics." The "Heart of Tengu" is also supposed to protect the user from attack ("Heart of Tengu"). This is no different than a magic amulet or a talisman.
The "astral plane" is a concept taught in occult circles by witches and sorcerers. And, magic amulets and talismans, such as magic rings, magic stones, etc. are used by sorcerers to control something that they call "the force."
David J. Meyer, a former witch who became a Christian, and later a pastor, wrote articles exposing Lord of the Rings, Narnia, Harry Potter, and other things. In his article about Lord of the Rings, Meyer said:
"The first thing a neophyte or beginner witch is taught is that there is a “force.” The “force” has two sides and can be controlled by magic spells, words, potions, incantations, rope magic, rings, amulets, and so on. Witches believe that there is good witchcraft and bad witchcraft, and the good always triumphs over evil! Witches also teach that battles are fought in the Middle Earth and in the astral plane causing upheavals both above and below. Thus, witches emphasize that good must triumph over evil, but it is all witchcraft." (Meyer)
The Bible speaks about all sorcery, magic, witchcraft, the occult, fortune telling, prognosticating, scrying, spell-casting, palm-reading, "psychic powers," wizardry, magic "arts," etc. as being evil and of the devil. In Deuteronomy 18 and throughout the Bible, God's Word says that these practices are forbidden.
"[10.] There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, 11. Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. 12. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee."
Sadly, TMNT (Ninja Turtles) promotes witchcraft to children and adults through the cartoons, movies, video games, and comic books.
What you read or watch will affect you in a negative or positive way. If it contains any occult references or themes, it is harmful and spiritually dangerous.
Would you let your children wander into a war zone where violent fighting is taking place if you could help it? What millions of children watch and read today is designed by the one who seeks to kill, steal, and destroy their lives (John 10:10). His goal is nothing less than bringing as many people as he can into Hell. And, the Bible calls him the dragon, a serpent, a beast, and Satan.
But, thanks be to God that there is hope and salvation from sin, and that there is deliverance from Hell in Jesus Christ, who died on a cross for our sins about 2,000 years ago. There is abundant life in Jesus Christ alone (John 10:10).
John 10:10 says: "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."
