“Jesus vs Harry Porter?”

This was forwarded to me and I thought I should share it with you people. It is about the Christian war against Harry Potter. Just read it and see for yourselves where we are heading. For those of us who will be having a family of our own, perhaps we should at least be aware of what books our kids read?

Christoper Nobat writes:

"Jesus died because He was weak and stupid": This is a quote from 6 year old Jessica Lehman of Easley, SC, - after reading the HARRY POTTER BOOKS!
The following is an email sent for the American Family Association, which is VERY disturbing, to say the least.

Dear Friend:

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 & Noble or Waldenbooks storefront. OR - Go to Amazon.com and read the reviews. Read the touting by educators and even (so-called) 'Christian' teachers about how "It's great to see the youth so eagerly embracing the reading experience!"

Harry Potter is the fictional product of a former UK English teacher who promotes witchcraft and Satanism. 'Harry' is a 13 year old 'wizard'. Her books openly blaspheme Jesus, and God, and openly promote sorcery. 'Harry' also teaches children to seek revenge on anyone who upsets them by giving them examples of spells & rituals and demonic powers (even the sources with authors & titles)!

The 'real' problem is that parents have not reviewed the material.
The name seems harmless enough...HARRY POTTER.......but that is where the 'harmlessness' ends!! Here are some quotes from some 'influenced' readers:

"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", says 10 year old Craig Nowell, Hartland WI...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 Jessica Lehman of Easley said: "Jesus died because He was weak & stupid."
And then there is dear Ashley, a 9-year old (the 'average age' reader of Harry Potter)

"I used to believe in what they taught us at Sunday school," said Ashley, who is attempting to conjure up an ancient spell to summon Cerebus, the three-headed hound from hell. "But the Harry Potter books showed me that magic is real, something I can use right now, and that the Bible is nothing but boring lies."

DOES THIS GET YOUR ATTENTION? If not, how about a quote from a High Priest of Satanism: "Harry is an absolute god-send 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!)
This 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 that Hollywood can produce nothing new to give them the"high".

Parents have neglected to be fully aware of what their children are reading and doing, and simply seem to be satisfied that "Little Johnny" has become very interested in reading". AND educators and the NEA are PUSHING this with NO WARNING as to it's effects or 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 is 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 & cavort in victory."
The author has now published four books in less than 2 years.

Note: The Holy Bible teaches us that Jesus, though he had the power did not want to use it randomly to avenge those who opposed him. Harry Potter, however, teaches revenge and how to cast magical spells or use power at random when you possess it. Harry is everything against what Jesus taught in the Bible. But if Jesus was just a hoax, how then would we classify Harry? Just where do you draw the line?

Ends…

Apparently there's nothing really wrong with reading children's book. I congratulate the author's efforts in putting together such a wonderful and most readable book like Harry Potter....but as long as we don't lead our fragile youth into believing that one is greater than the other! I mean we don't really know for sure who is the greatest! Do we?
