Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered outside the gate.  Therefore, let us go forth to him outside the camp, bearing his reproach.  For we have no continuing city here, but we seek one to come.

The Politics of Harry Potter

An email from a brother in the Lord.

Hey, this isn’t much, but I thought it was neat. Today, I was looking at Wikipedia. They have a “Did you know . . .” section.

One of the titles was, “Did you know that several universities now offer courses on the politics of Harry Potter?” Of course, I wondered what in the world a course on “the politics of Harry Potter” could possibly be. Under the link to this article, I read, “There have been many published theories that read politics and meaning into J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter books. Often the theories conflict with each other, such as some writers who see Harry Potter promoting Devil worship and others who interpret it as promoting Christianity.” And I thought, “Well, they are arguing the same thing.” :-)

I think that is incredible . . . that we know these two things to be the same: Devil worship and Christianity.


It is incredible. And only God can help us keep believing that truth in the face of such opposition.

Stay humble, and there is no telling what else the Lord will teach us, or what good he will use us to do. And in the meantime, please remember that although participation in the religion of Christianity does glorify Satan, God has precious children in there unwittingly doing that, and He still loves them dearly. Always do good for them when you can, and never puff yourself up against them because of the truth you know.
