2Ch 33:6 And he caused his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom: also he observed times, and used enchantments, and used witchcraft, and dealt with a familiar spirit, and with wizards: he wrought much evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.
Gal 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
Gal 5:20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Gal 5:21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
Lev_19:31 Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.
Deu 18:10 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,
Deu 18:11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
Deu 18:12 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.
2Ki 23:24 Moreover the workers with familiar spirits, and the wizards, and the images, and the idols, and all the abominations that were spied in the land of Judah and in Jerusalem, did Josiah put away, that he might perform the words of the law which were written in the book that Hilkiah the priest found in the house of the LORD.
2Ki 23:25 And like unto him was there no king before him, that turned to the LORD with all his heart, and with all his soul, and with all his might, according to all the law of Moses; neither after him arose there any like him.
Reba don't be ridiculous, I could never hate you. You have your right to your opinion too. If you feel like Harry Potter and magic tricks go against what you believe the Bible is saying then you have every right to believe that. Please don't hate me for disagreeing with you though. I love you sister! And even if we disagree sometimes I will always love you as a sister in Christ no matter what.
Maybe, if they were real but I think that the Bible was speaking of something completely different. Like I said, everybody has a right to their opinion. However, I didn't see anything about Harry Potter being against the terms of service or anything like that so unless you decide to disallow it, can't others who enjoy it here have their fun?
Harry Potter has a fan club and the motivation of the heart is to praise HP
Just reading here at CFnet i see the scriptures doubted and Harry potter praised .
I can not set back and read this wizard stuff with out, at the least, pointing out what the Word of God has to say over that of the word of Hollywood..
I will not continue on this topic
I know that Reba has decided not to be a part of this topic anymore, but for the rest of you that still think Harry Potter is evil watch these videos. I'm not trying to change your mind, I'm just trying to defend my reasoning.
Like I said though, I was already fully aware that I would receive hate and backlash when I started this topic so I have to admit that I'm rather pleased and surprised to see many other people enjoy it! Thanks for the support guys! Here's a little reward!
I just wanted to add a few more videos to this. This is a musical Harry Potter series that I really enjoy on YouTube, and I really hope that all of the other Harry Potter fans out there enjoy it as well.
I believe the greatest danger is in the lies that mask themselves as Truthes. I'm more concerned with the "almost true" than the blatantly false. As I've said, I'm not a fan of the Harry Potter franchise, but this is clearly fiction. I am a huge Star Wars fan, and I don't spend time worrying about "the force" that empowers the Jedi. I'm not worried that Darth Vader, Darth Maul, or the Sith Lord means to do me harm. It's fantasy! It's an escape!
I concern myself more with Mormons who cloak themselves in the name "Church of Jesus & Latter Day Saints" which has sold its lies to countless unaware people seeking truth in their lives. This is spawned from hell.
You'll always have people with loose grips on reality falling for fictional stories and characters. If it's not HP, it will be something else. If we're concerned with HP distracting people from Jesus, let's condemn everything that isn't Jesus, every fictional story, every secular song, every TV show.
Let me also add one thing to attempt to put this debate to an end. (even though that's probably never going to happen) everybody who is against Harry Potter take a good look at my singature. Read it, study it, memorize it! If God hadn't intended for us humans to have the ability to imagine and create, He wouldn't have given us the ability to do so in the first place! God never makes mistakes and He always has a reason for everything, and if we didn't have our imaginations we wouldn't have books, we wouldn't have movies, we wouldn't have television, we would pretty much be stuck with absolutely stinking nothing! So yeah, I'm not saying that you aren't allowed to have your opinions because you are, I am just trying to make a point and get you all to calm down already!
Great news to all of you other Harry Potter fans out there! Have you ever wished that you were Harry Potter flying on a broomstick up above the Qudditch Pitch trying to capture the Snitch? Well, now you can! Sort of, here is a ground version of the magical game right out from the mind of JK Rowling herself!
