Dear friends, Seeing as there is no topic related to Harry Potter, I'd thought I'd start one. Now, heed this rule : Please, I hope this topic will not to turn into an insulting one. You can explain why you think Harry Potter is Satanic and evil, but you MUST respect those who like the series. Such as myself. I like the good VS evil piece in the books/movies. Good always wins. Not to mention Harry Potter teaches about friendship, being true to yourself, and sticking together. However, I do understand that Harry Potter also teaches about Witchcraft. Yes, I admit that it does do that. What you all must know is that I do not practice what I read/see/hear from Harry Potter. I stopped playing the PS2 video game of the Chamber of Secrets because of that. You basically were practicing witchcraft through a video game. QUESTIONS I AM ASKING BAPTISTBOARD.COM: ----------------------------------------- 1.) Why do you think Harry Potter is Satanic and Evil? 2.) Are there good qualities about this series? 3.) If not, then why are so many teens/little kids drawn into it? 4.) If Harry Potter gets kids to read who before never would pick up a book, does this mean it is evil and Satanic? 5.) Would Jesus Christ hang out with those who read Harry Potter in order to bring them to HIM? 6.) Is it okay for a Christian to use Harry Potter for the one purpose: Evangelism....? 7.) Where in the Holy Bible does it say that you can't read about something that deals with Witchcraft...if you do not practice it? 8.) Take me for example. I read Harry Potter and talk on a Harry Potter forum. However, I do not practice what I read/see/hear from the films and books. I don't walk up to a book, pull out a stick and yell "ACCIO!" (A spell for levitation). So, with this being said...am I doing the right thing? If the only reason I like Harry Potter is for using it to bring others to Jesus Christ and I do not practice what I see/read/hear from the series, then where's the harm? If you all could answer these questions as clearly and detailed as possbile...I'd appreciate it. I know this is a debate board, but if we can refrain from judging those who like Harry Potter, I'd appreciate it. Thank you! Enjoy!
