A friend sent this to me today. What is it? He said there are scriptures that tell about these creatures. The Fairy-Excerpt from Watchers 10
The video you asked about is a fraud. It purports to show the mythological beings called fairies floating around in the real world. The BBC reported that the video is not true. Fairy fool sparks huge response In real life there is no such thing as fairies. The creators of the video were trying to fool people or play a practical joke – which is fine as long as it is done without malice. While I don’t know the motives of the people who created this video, it seems more like they were trying to pull our legs than that they intended any harm.
It’s important to be skeptical of things we see on the internet. Like most things, the internet is both good and bad. Used correctly, we can make wonderful friends and it can help us grow in our faith. Used incorrectly, it can damage our most sacred relationships and turn people against one another. That doesn’t mean that the internet is bad, after all Ask Gramps wouldn’t exist if not for the internet. We also know of people who have been introduced to the church by way of the internet, so it would be hasty to avoid the internet completely. Though for some people that might be their personal choice and there is nothing wrong with that.
Skepticism is also not healthy if it’s taken to the extreme. There is nothing wrong with reading about dragons, fairies, trolls, goblins, and other mythological creatures. Often times novels and movies of that sort tell us clean, entertaining, and interesting stories that we can greatly enjoy. The trick is finding a balance. So, when you come across things like this on the internet, apply a healthy dose of skepticism, do a bit of research to see what credible sources are saying about what you found, consider how it fits in with the truths you know, and judge from there what to think of it. At the end of the day, if it sounds too good or too “out there” to be true, it probably is.
While I’m not sure what scriptures your friend was referring to, there are a few verses in Revelation that come to mind. Revelation 9:3-10:
3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
Just my opinion, reading the description of these creatures doesn’t sound like fairies to me.
