Please dont hate :

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.
I am surprised honestly that a Christian forum is letting posters post pro- Harry Potter and magicians wearing anarchy symbols unchallenged. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anarchist_symbolism

But then I am a narrow-minded, judgemental bible-basher. :lol

To be rather honest with you, I didn't think that it would be allow3d either but it wasn't against the terms of service and even Eugene is getting in on the act no pun intended. So it must be alright. I don't judge the magicians as people myself. I just enjoy all of the magic for what it is,..entertainment! :biggrin

I like the difference between real witchcraft and entertainment magicans. I think we are one mind with that, aren`t we?

Fairytales clearly marked as fairytales (i.e. not true, like Brothers Grimm) are not that difficult. Same for SciFi.

In my opinion the danger lies not in HP being a magican (that is clear for every reader - stories are fiction), but in a way that ... those stories tell that there could be a "good" witchcraft, it seems ... so harmless ... isn`t HP a cool guy? It influences the thinking of the reading kids, tending to play down witchcraft. And so for the symbols JoChris mentioned. One sees them, sees them again, a kind of getting-used-to takes place. Awareness could get sleepy. A symbol itself can not harm you, only wearing a cross does no save you either.

And the question for reading or not reading: I believe it is the same kind of question as the Corintheans had: Eating or not eating ....
If it troubles ones conscience, leave it. Those who are free in the Lord to read, don`t bash the non-readers (and vice versa).

About haunted places: Yes, there are. But the Lord is stronger. When we bought and moved into our house more than 20 years ago, there was something. I wandered around a few months feeling kind of unconfortable and fearful, especially in one room. But then I realized that Jesus is stronger than any other force ever could be. So I went in every room, praying, telling the demons to go away and gave every room to Jesus. And same for the yard and the garden. Since then there is nothing disturbing left. We have the power given by God!

Love and blessings, A.

:clap Good point! :goodpost And since I never made a point of bashing the non-readers, I really appreciate it if they wouldn't bash me.
