I can't speak for Twilight, but he has clearly never read any Harry Potter book.
I have, I read them before I let my daughter read them because of the concerns people posted about. As far as I’m concerned they have as good a message as Harry Potter IMHO.
It’s a freakin kids book!
Did Stephen King open a portal to hell by writing stories about the Paranormal?
Some people need to lighten up...Seriously.
Harry Potter is replete with Christian themes. Good vs. Evil, loyalty, sacrifice, Love...anyone who thinks otherwise has not read the books.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read the series. I’m currently back to Chamber of Secrets. I’ll be teaching a Harry Potter Lit. class next semester, and I’m very excited about that! This person obviously has not read the series, as power is not glamorized but portrayed as very dangerous. Hello, the statue at the Ministry of witches and wizards sitting on a pile of humans anybody?
Also, I’d love to know what this braintrust thinks about such classics as Alice in Wonderland, Through the Looking Glass, and The Wizard of Oz.
in a book called the dark side of the occult, researchers found common traits among all those who were demon oppressed or possessed and that was the occult or drugs. they found the fastest route to become possessed was the ouija board or drugs.
dont kid yourself. harry potter is all about the occult. it may be entertaining but it glorifies it same as all these tv shows where folks attempt to make contact with the dead or have paranomal encounters.
maybe the bible is not your book but it is incredibly clear that we are to NEVER participate in any of these things and that supernatural entities (whether good or bad) are awe-inspiring created beings—not the harmless ones people like to think of. Apostle Paul himself said that he was never disrespectful when talking about them because of their power and office.
although the exorcism of emily rose was wrong in that demons cannot possess a christian, much else about it was spot on.
I can’t believe people actually believe this stuff. Aside from the obvious references to current books, this article sounds like it could have been written in the dark ages.
Imagine if there was a way to combine a Potter and a Linclon thread.... It would implode under it’s own psychopathology.
Don’t you just hate it when you’re trying to walk somewhere, reading your Harry Potter book, and suddenly the Gates of Hell open up before you?
What a waste of time. Always makes me late...
I just read some Harry Potter and think I may now be possessed. It might just be gas though. I had a corndog earlier. I like taffy.
But even if he had, a guy who goes looking for the devil is certain to find him, no matter where he looks.
I wonder what demons our exorcist friend has found in, say, the Narnia books....
A friend of the family is a librarian. She's seen how the same kids progress from the Harry Potter books and then ask for the "real thing".
If you haven't noticed, the major book stores such as Barnes and Noble are all too happy to accommodate the demand for the occult. I even saw a voodoo doll in a store recently. Take a look at the "Young Adult" section of a book store. It is full of vampire garbage. This kind of stuff influences impressionable minds. Even to the point that some of them get involved in weird rituals.
Believe in it or not, this is sick stuff. It's best not to plant the seeds to begin with. There are plenty of purely wholesome things to be exposed to if you look for them.
