No,I do not stand against non-Bible self-help books. Of course it depends on the book as to whether or not I'd read it. I'm very particular about my reading material, but I'm not the public censor. Stephen King's novels? I've never been attracted to them. Too much pure horror. Dean Koontz' novels? I used to be an addicted fan of them. Wow, that man can really tell a story, and what an imagination. Truth be told, I love his novels. (The movies they've made from them just haven't measured up.) I stopped reading them though. Just other more important things to do.
I read The Once and Future King years ago. Arthur is transformed by Merlin (a wizard living backwards in time) to different types of animals, in order to gain experience in different situations. There was a lot of magic in this book, but it didn't lead me into witchcraft.
Haven't read it. But it sounds like a combo of fantasy and science fiction. My objection to Harry Potter is that it doesn't just have some elements of witchcraft in it as literary vehicles, as most fairy tales do. It is 100% witchcraft through and through, without any break from it. It just creeped me out, and I trust my intuitions.
You know what ? Go read your Bible, pray, do NOT do anything at all else; ESPECIALLY , do NOT come onto a FR thread, ignore the artile, put words into other people's mnouths, and then accuse them of things they did NOT say !
You whinged and whined about people being " insulting " and yet, YOU have the nerve to break one of the 10 Commandments ( THOU SHALLT NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS ! ) , all the while you talk about Harry Potter being " FULL OF WITCHCRAft ', and you haven't a clue what " witchcraft " is ! Harry Potter's witchcraft is abut on the same level as the witch in Hansel & Grettel, Cinderella, ALL of the Aurthurian legends, and " THE LORD OF THE RINGS " !
You are a bloody hypocrite, a liar, ill educated, and a blasphemer !
