“The Devil Inside portrays spiritual warfare as quite real and demons as quite fearsome. And I suppose it’s nice to see the spiritual world so blatantly affirmed.”
Yes, it’s nice to see the crazy part of Christianity that give all Christians a bad name.
|Me:||Oh daaaarnn, Focus on the Family had to lay off 49 people.|
|Roommate:||Oh mannnn, stupid economy! Times are tough for biggots!|
Because if people are curious about things other then Christianity, that would be awful.
“But even if Harry Potter’s magic isn’t of the occult, it still carries with it serious dangers. First, Rowling’s stories—unlike Lewis’ or Tolkien’s—are neither a Christian allegory, nor do they subscribe to a consistent Christian worldview. And second, we live in a culture that glorifies and promotes witchcraft and the occult. No matter what the essence of Harry’s magic, the effect of it is undoubtedly to raise curiosity about magic and wizardry. And any curiosity raised on this front presents a danger that the world will satisfy it with falsehood before the church or the family can satisfy it with truth”
- Focus on the Family
"While we do not believe an individual typically “chooses” his or her same sex-attractions, we do believe that those who struggle with unwanted same-sex sexual temptation can choose to steward their impulses in a way that aligns with their faith convictions. We affirm the Scriptural teaching that homosexuals can and do change their sexual identity (1 Cor. 6:9-11). We support counseling and the availability of professional therapy options for unwanted homosexual attractions and behavior."
