Harry Potter V.S. Evangelicals


Harry Potter V.S. the Evangelical Church

Several years ago a single mother, jobless and newly divorced decided to put her creative energies to work so she could provide for herself and her infant child.  So she sat in a coffee shop making notes on a paper napkin.  She eventually published her first volume in the Harry Potter series, The Sorcerer’s stone.  Her first book was a hit, and the crowd demanded more.  However her talent was hit with a blight of hot criticism from the evangelical church in America.  She was very offended and disappointed. 

Meanwhile back at the ranch of the land of the brave and the home of the free, I got curious about Harry Potter now an aspiring star gaining popularity.  So I read Harry Potter, and I loved him.  Now what to do about all the controversy.  Good question.  I am a conservative evangelical and among my “people” those books were taboo.  I am glad that I live in a country where free speech is still allowed – occasionally. I have given much thought to the trouble with Harry Potter.

The thing that offended evangelicals was the whole idea of  teaching children to practice witchcraft.  That is a frightening thought.  That caused a huge hiccup with the church.  From a Biblical perspective it makes sense because in the Old Testament the practice of witchcraft came with a death penalty.  However when you examine what these children were actually being taught, it bore little resemblance to the real practice of witchcraft.

The occult is steeped in the most depraved forms of sexual perversion.  Children in the occult are sexually traumatized regularly as a form of discipline.  In fact SRA uses sexual abuse to deliberately induce multiple personalities in their children.  In addition children are further traumatized by being forced to participate in ritual sacrifice involving both humans and animals.  Occult children are impregnated and are kept isolated during pregnancy so that the child produced can be ritually sacrificed.  The minor parents of those infants are required to participate in the sacrifice of their children.  Occult children are forced to drink the adrenaline laced blood of traumatized victims.  They are also poisoned with drugs and repeatedly raped.

By contrast there was not even a hint is perverted sex in the Harry Potter series. There was one scene with mild nudity in the last film. I didn’t read the last book. The children were for the most part treated with affection and respect. There were a few exceptions but the rest of the staff worked to balance them out.  In addition, in contrast to the typical American High School, the students were not taught safe sex and were never given condoms.  There were no pregnant teenagers and no abortion clinics.  The nurse did not hand out birth control pills either.

Real witches and wizards do not ride on brooms as they did in Harry potter.  Real witches do not use magic wands.  A woman sitting in church next to me remarked about Harry Potter with authentic concern and a nod of her head, “Those were real spells  [in Harry Potter]”.  She probably had not read the books but was parroting the scuttlebutt surrounding the books.  Well maybe some of them were real spells.  Most authors, even fiction writers, do a significant amount of research to add weight to work and make it more realistic and interesting.  I sincerely doubt all the Potter incantations are real spells.  For example, Mrs. McGonagall confronted Harry and let him know that the Headmaster, Professor Dumbledore, required his presence in his office.  Harry mounted the spiral staircase as Mrs. McGonagall pointed her wand and said, “Lemon Sherbet” and the spiral staircase began to move and carried Harry upwards into Dumbledore’s office.  You might want to try that sometime, say when you have to carry a heavy load up a flight of stairs.  Let me know how that works.  Or if you happen to find yourself surrounded by a bunch of bullies, try shouting “Expecto Patronum” and see if a ghostly looking white stag shows up to rescue you.  Or if you find yourself confronting something that scares you, try looking at it and shouting “Ridiculous” and see if it turns into a clown.  Seriously now!

Well, I lined Harry Potter up with The Lord of the Rings and the Chronicles of Narnia because the Evangelical crowd loved those.  What was different?  Were there similarities?  Magic was an integral part of all three, though admittedly there was a heavier emphasis on magic in Harry Potter.  All three of them depicted a classic struggle between good and evil and in all three the good wins out.  In all three you find people combining their efforts to overcome a common enemy. In all three there are heroes who willingly lay down their lives for the sake of their mission. 

In Harry Potter there is a point in which one of his arch rivals is in a tight spot and is likely going to burn to death, and Harry makes the decision to save his life.  I did not see the enemy being saved from destruction in either Lord of the Rings, though Frodo does befriend Gollum for a time in LOR.  In Chronicles, Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Reepicheep befriends the antagonistic Eustace and eventually wins him over. Both Lucy in Chronicles and Hermione in HP have a vial of magic potion that is good for healing wounds or even bringing someone back to life. 

The actual practice of witchcraft is very frightening and is very dangerous. Witches and Satanists chant the names of pagan deities during rituals.  They summon the spirits of the dead and they commandeer demon spirits to do their dirty work.   Some cultists have stood face to face with Satan himself. Though there might have been ghosts wandering around Hogwarts and the children talked to them, none of the other terror associated with pagan gods or demon spirits were associated with Harry Potter except for the dementors which the children were taught to avoid. In LOR an entire army of dead souls was called upon to fight the battle at Minas Tirath. Chronicles had also a ghost or two.

If cult members try to escape they can be severely abused or even killed especially if they betray any cult secrets.  None of the children were forced to be a part of their education at Hogwarts, and they were not threatened or abused if they wanted to leave.

I personally tend to avoid reading material or other media that is too heavy with occult themes.  Though I did not really have a problem with the books, I was concerned about the films because of the possibility of back masking which posses the threat of subliminal influence.  I decided I did not want to watch those anymore.  That would not be Ms. Rowling’s fault.  The entertainment industry is full of cultists and the fact that back-masking is against the law wouldn’t matter to them.

Each person has to make their own decisions about what they see and hear.  If you aren’t comfortable with Harry Potter then leave it alone . I would recommend reading a book by Linda Blood called The New Satanist.  Ms. Blood became intimately acquainted with an infamous occult character known as Michael Aquino, founder of the Temple of Set.  In her book she describes the infiltration of the occult into the US Military and the intelligence community and the danger it presents to children in our communities. What concerns me more is the silence of the church about the true danger the occult presents to us today.  Satanists and Luciferians have literally taken over this country. The church today remains largely asleep and oblivious to the real threat of the occult that is all around us.
Occultists are rich and powerful.  They posses degrees in higher education. They are doctors, teachers, lawyers, psychologists, psychiatrists and even evangelical clergy.  They have a frightening agenda and they posses no moral or ethical code.  They have infiltrated every public and private institution, every business, every public office and even our hospitals.  They don’t present to be any different than you and me, but they are committed to an agenda for world domination.  They could be your peers, your boss, the head of your board and even the person who signs your paycheck.  They have more political clout and more power then you ever imagined, and it is not magic.  All of our lives are at risk because of their work.  They have even taken control of the US military and the US Intelligence Community.  They are spying on you and their astral projecting spirits could easily be in your home, invisible to your eye. 

The church does not speak out so loudly about this.  I wish they would.  I wish that evangelicals would perceive the danger and prepare to fight.  I wish I could see evangelicals who were as committed as Harry and his companions were to winning the fight. 

Jesus commands us to love our enemies.  Cultists are people.  They have a diminished capacity to understand love, or the need for grace and mercy.  They tend to see Christians as tyrants because of our position on chastity.  They were raised with sexual perversion and abuse.  They numb their own pain with sex, drugs and alcohol.  They were never taught to believe that they mattered to anyone.  They were taught to believe that they only mattered for what they contributed to the cause.  They were rewarded
for unquestioned obedience to their cult authority figures and punished for the slightest infraction.  They have no clue that everything they were taught is an absolute lie. 

If we are going to shout about something, let’s not throw the proverbial tomato at our English sister, JK Rowling.  Let’s have some some compassion and face the real fight.  There are lives we could save.  There are people who have worked tirelessly undercover to save the abused of the occult world.  Let us pray and ask God how we could lend them our support and get into the ring.  Somebody needs to be rescued.
