Harry Potter Books
"Jesus died because he was weak and stupid". This is a quote from 6 year old Jessica Lehman of Easley, South Carolina after reading the Harry Potter Books!
Dear Christian, this is the most evil thing I have laid my eyes on in 10 years . . . and no one seems to understand its threat.
The Harry Potter books are THE NUMBER ONE selling children's books in the nation today. Just look at any Barns and Noble or Walden books storefront.
Go to Amazon.com and read the reviews. Hear the touting by educators and even Christian teachers about how "It's great to see the youth so eagerly embracing the reading experience!"
Harry Potter is the creation of a former UK English teacher who promotes witchcraft and Satanism. Harry is a 13 year old `wizard.' Her creation openly blasphemes Jesus and God and promotes sorcery, seeking revenge u;on anyone who upsets them by giving you examples (even the sources with authors and titles) of spells, rituals, and demonic powers.
I think the problem is that parents have not reviewed the material. the name seems harmless enough . . . Harry Potter. But that is where it all ends. Let me give you a few quotes from some of the influenced readers themselves.
"The Harry Potter books are cool, `cause they teach you all about magic and how you can use it to control people and get revenge on your enemies" said Hartland, WI, 10 year old Craig Nowell, a recent convert to the new Satanic Order Of The Black Circle. "I want to learn the Cruciatus Curse, to make my muggle science teacher suffer for giving me a D." (A `muggle' is an unbeliever of magic.)
Or how about the REALLY young and innocent impressionable mind of a 6 year old when asked about her favorite character. "Hermione is my favorite, because she's smart and has a kitty," said 6 year old Jessic Lehman of Easley, South Carolina. "Jesus died because he was weak and stupid."
And here is dear Ashley, a 9 year old, the typical average age reader of Harry Potter: "I used to believe in what they taught us at Sunday School," said Ashley, conjuring up an ancient spell to summon Cerebus, the three-headed hound of hell. "But the Harry Potter books showed me that magic is real, something I can learn and use right now, and that the Bible is nothing but boring lies."
DOES THIS GET YOUR ATTENTION?
If not, how about a quote from High Priest of Satanism: "Harry is an absolute godsend to our cause," said High Priest Egan of the First Church Of Satan in Salem, MA. An organization like ours thrives on new blood no pun intended and we've had more applicants than we can handle lately. And, of course, practically all of them are virgins, which is gravy."
(Since 1995, open applicants to Satan worship has increased from around 100,000 to now . . . 20 MILLION children and young adults! It makes me physically ill.)
But, I think I can offer you an explanation of why this is happening. Children have been bombarded with action, adventure, thrills and scares to the point Hollywood can produce nothing new to give them the next `high.'
Parents have neglected to see what their children are reading and doing, and simply seem satisfied that `Little Johnny is interested in reading.' AND . . . educators and the NEA are PUSHING this with NO WARNING as to the effects of the contents.
Still not convinced? I will leave you with something to let you make up your own mind. A quote from the author herself, J.K. Rowling, describing the objections of Christian reviewers to her writings:
"I think it's absolute rubbish to protest children's books on the grounds that they are luring children to Satan," Rowling told a London Times reporter in a July 17 interview. "People should be praising them for that! These books guide children to an understanding that the weak, idiotic Son of God is a living hoax who will be humiliated when the rain of fire comes . . . while we, his faithful servants, laugh and cavort in victory."
My hope is that you will see fit to become involved in getting the word out about this garbage. Please send this message to every pastor, teacher, and parent you know. This author has now published four books in less than 2years of this `encyclopedia of Satanism' and is surely going to write more. I also ask all Christians to please pray for this lost woman's soul.
Pray also for the Holy Spirit to work in the young minds of those who are reading this garbage that they may be delivered from its harm.
Lastly, pray for all parents to grow closer to their children, and that a bond of sharing thoughts and spiritual intimacy will grow between them. Please pass this information about Harry Potter books to everyone you know.
