Before I begin, each week we have a discussion. Sometimes they may be controversial. However, I want to make it clear that NONE are going to become a mean spirited type of discussion. We are all sisters in Christ and we should act accordingly. If ANYONE posts a mean come back or has the profound need to force others to believe what they believe to the point of arguing, their comments will be deleted and never again approved on this site. So play NICE!
OK…on to the discussion part…
What are your thoughts on Harry Potter and other Witchcraft Entertainment?
Again…BE RESPECTFUL and KIND in your responses or you will be banned from the site. Period.
I will be doing a devotional on this in early 2011 on witchcraft, and I thought it would be a good discussion topic to see where my Christian Mom readers are at on this topic. Please know that I have a VERY clear and STRONG view on this topic and have wrote several pieces on it already. However, I am certainly NOT going to attack you if you feel differently. Do not be offended though if I DO reply with Scriptural evidence that contradicts your views. It is not… I repeat NOT meant to offend. This topic is meant to help us as Christian Mothers and daughters of the King learn HIS view on things and to become BETTER Mothers and examples to our children and the lost world we live in.
It is alarming how much witchcraft has become a prominent place in our society. Even Christians are buying into it in the name of entertainment. Well, quite frankly, I find it shocking to see how far from the Word’s standards we have come. From Harry Potter to Lord of the Rings to Princess and the Frog and everything in between. We have packaged it as “in your face” witchcraft, cutesy and even subtle. However, it is still all the same. Witchcraft.
Witchcraft and all that it implies is very UNHEALTHY and strongly prohibited Biblically…to participate in, endorse or let alone use for entertainment purposes. Our viewpoints and lifestyle should be measured by Biblical standards…NOT worldly…
A few Scriptures I found that I think are worth a read if you have become desensitized to this aspect of the world we live in.
- Lev. 19:26, 31; 20:6, 27
- Deut. 18:9-14
- Exodus 22:18
- 1 Samuel 15:23
- 2 Kings 17:13-18; 21:6
- Isaiah 8:19-20; 44:25
- Acts 8:9; 13:6; 17:11; 18-22
- Galatians 5:19-21
- 1 Timothy 4:1-2
- James 3:15
- Rev. 19:21; 21:8; 22:15
There are MANY more…LOL…but these should be helpful to get you started. I would also urge you to pray and ask God what He thinks about what you watch, read, listen to and allow in your life… and your children’s lives. I do not mean to seem “preachy”, however, I feel that we cannot ignore the Word of God, and act like we can just pick and choose the portions of it that we want to acknowledge. His ENTIRE Word is for teaching, learning, reproof and a GUIDE for ALL we do! God loves us and would not warn against something unless He was trying to protect us…and NO form of entertainment means more to me than my obedience to my Daddy’s Word. <3
