The Harry Potter book has just been released in bookstores this week.This book is sixth book in a planned series of 7 books.
Iím sure you have all heard that these books have been a huge success and there are millions of kids throughout world hooked on these books as well as quite a few adults themselves. The publishing industry has never seen anything quite like this. What is fascination with these books and now movie? Why are so many children and some adults drawn to these books?
There have always been movies and fiction books on witchcraft, wizardry and sorcery - but none of them have ever obtained popularity that this series of books has. What is so different with this line of books? Why are they so much more popular than anything else that has ever been written?
Many of major Christian ministries are up in major arms about these books and now movie. They say these books are a lure to lead children and adults into witchcraft and other dark occult arts.
However, we have always had these types of movies and books coming at us. Why all of a sudden are so many Christians coming out against these books where they have really not done this in past with all of fantasy movies Hollywood has come out with in past.
I've always felt in my spirit that there really was something different with these series of books - but I never bought or read any of them. I went ahead and rented very first Harry Potter video and watched it in its complete entirety to see if these Christians were right in their criticism of this movie and these books or if they were just getting too carried away on what at first glance just seems to be harmless fantasy entertainment.
After watching and reviewing this movie very carefully, it is my personal opinion that Christians who are up in arms over these books and movie are right! This movie, and especially series of books themselves, is a definite lure from dark side to entice and trap people into not only witchcraft itself - but other occult arts, which are expressly forbidden by God Father in Bible.
There is no question that Satan is one orchestrating way that these books have been written up and how they have been so cleverly marketed to a mass audience who have no idea what is really lurking behind all of it. Satan has very cleverly put a major spiritual secret in these books and movies that is in operation in spiritual realm that will draw some of more ignorant and naive into real world of witchcraft.
