More Harry Potter hysteria
Whenever a Harry Potter book or movie comes out, the bible beaters come out of the woodwork to declare that young minds are being led to witchcraft or Satan. Like clockwork…
Evangelist Tim Todd, who heads up Revival Fires International, says both the church and the secular world need to understand the danger for children and teens in embracing occult literature.
…”The Harry Potter books present a Godless universe — one in which the most powerful wizard wins,” says the evangelist. “And in these books, the hero is a wizard who shows no evidence of belief in God and does not use the power of prayer to combat evil.”
Todd contends the church has not looked closely enough at the phenomenon of the wizard’s saga and the danger of it from a biblical standpoint. “The Harry Potter series — it promotes sacrificing animals; it’s emphasizing power regardless of good or evil; offering up blood sacrifices,” he explains. “In Deuteronomy chapter 18, it says that sorcery and witchcraft is wrong, it’s sin …. This is not something that we want to be promoting to our children as being a good thing,” Todd emphasizes.
