On the surface, for the extremely naďve, Harry Potter seems to be a simple, innocent fantasy.  And what child would not be attracted to fantasy?  After all fantasy is fun, a delicate slip from the pressure of life.  Fantasy is to dream to desire; it is the flight of the imagination, a mystical escape from reality.  What could be wrong with that? 

But therein lies the problem.  Is Harry Potter an escape from reality into the imaginative?  The answer for anyone that has done his homework is NO, No a thousand times No.  Harry Potter deals with the occult and is an intrinsically evil reality.  There is no escape here, it is reality.  Harry Potter is a highly polished, well-orchestrated and magnificently marketed attack against God Himself.  It is witchcraft, it is alluring and it is all too easy to slip supernaturally right on into the dark side.  And they have for their champion Coke-a-Cola, Mattel, Warner Brothers and the list goes on.  Disney Corp must be pulling its hair out or at least casting a few spells.  They do not have a piece of this pie. 

It is so easy for the deceived to say that I am making something out of nothing, but foolhardy is the person that cannot see the big picture here.  Satan’s on slot of late has been through Dungeons and Dragons, Pokemon, Potter and the likes.  Satan is laughing out loud, “I am killing your children and you can’t even see it.”  Let me clue you into the theology of the subject at hand.  Scripture says: 

New American Bible

Deu 18:10-12  Let there not be found among you anyone who immolates his son or daughter in the fire, nor a fortune-teller, soothsayer, charmer, diviner, or caster of spells, nor one who consults ghosts and spirits or seeks oracles from the dead.  Anyone who does such things is an abomination to the LORD, and because of such abominations the LORD, your God, is driving these nations out of your way.    Check also: 2 kings 9:12, 17:17, 21:6, Jer 14:14 

Scripture is clear on the subject and the prognoses for those involved in witchcraft are not good.  So why, I ask you, subject your little ones to the tempter?  Is it Just fun? 

New American Bible

Mark 13:22-23  False messiahs and false prophets will arise and will perform signs and wonders in order to mislead, if that were possible, the elect.  Be watchful! I have told it all to you beforehand. 

So God warns us that even the elect will be deceived and so we see in Our Sunday Visitor and many Catholic papers promoting the Potter path to Hell.  The very name Potter reflects the trap, a female goddess.  The scenario, mother goddess, the woman as the creator.  We see this attraction to evil theology in many Catholic circles through wicca, enneagrams and the promotion of the woman, even if we have to trample on Scripture itself. 

Watch and you will see.  The ones that promote the de-masculinization of Holy Scripture will be high amongst the promoters of Harry Potter.  Having our children sucked into the vortex of cultism and having parents and religious alike cheering them on is a classic case of the elect being deceived. 

God and His prayers are not allowed in the schools, but Potter, witchcraft and the like are not only allowed, they are heralded as solid teaching.  Thirty five different magazines distributed through all American secular schools, by Scholastic, promotes Potter.  Even though the government has classified witchcraft as a religion and given it non-profit status as a religion and to the point of having witchcraft chaplains in the military, we now see the embracing of this religion by most everyone, especially in the schools.  It is mother-goddess worship that makes the male subservient to the female god.  The Catholic Church has a name for it.  It is called anti-christ.  It is everything that stands against God.  It is the opposite of God at work here.  Let there be no doubt about that. 

Oh, you cannot see this in Harry Potter.  You better look again.  You can tell a tree by its fruit.  I admit you can not see mother goddess in forefront of the Potter trap, Harry is just the bait for the trap.  What happens next is the inquisitiveness embarks the child on a journey for a more fulfilling hands on excitement.  And where do they find that?  On the web.  Most every child is familiar with the web.  You will find witchcraft and all that Satan has to offer on the web.  Go to search on the web and type in witchcraft and now you will find mother goddess.  The trap is sprung.  Hands on?  It is all there, from the very basic spells to the blackest of black magic. 

Start asking children what they think about Potter.  The answers? “I want the power that Harry has.”  Not the power that saints have, the power that comes from God, oh no they want Harry’s evil power.  Yes Harry has power and in the books and the movie he uses his power for “good,” does he not?  He used his power for revenge and spell casting is what he does.  Is that good? Yes some say, it is against his more evil enemy, but that does not make it good.  It is one in the same power at work in Harry Potter and his ach enemy Vomdimer.  We need a disclaimer on the Potter book covers that says CAUTION SATAN AT WORK, possibility of possession high. 

 “Can I go to the Hogwart School?”  That is another popular question children have.  This school, just like our schools, teaches evil, but 100 times greater.  Hogwart is the next step in being a full blown wizard or witch.  You can call this a fantasy all you want, that is the lie they want you to believe, the fact is, it is a reality and children are casting spells on each other, just for practice.  Through practice, just like Harry, they develop their power. 

The books are provocative, humorous and beautifully written.  The author, Joan Rowling, majored in mythology in college.  She has brought forth in this box office smash all that history has stored up in that seemingly harmless mythology.  The books and the first movie, much more to come, teach children about the other side, scorers and the like and they find solaces in that.  Distant from the far too often boring faith we teach children about THE God, this new attack by Satan is slick and well presented.  Your children find much fun in the tapes, books and scorers' games you buy them.  And isn’t it wonderful to see them read so much.  It is reported that kids read these books 3 and 4 times.  Is it not wonderful how quite they are as you place them serenely in Satan’s lap and he lulls them of to dream dreams of him? 

Think about it, your child’s soul is at stake. Talk to them.  Ask them what it makes them think about.  You can bet it is not Jesus.  It is about Harry Potter’s mystical attraction and they want to be like him.  Your children just may be casting spells on you because of your attempt at discipline.  Getting any migraines lately?  Wake up and smell something other than roses?  God is the Potter and we are the clay. 

Still think I am off base?  This just in:  Rome’s official exorcist, Father Gabriele Amorth, warns parents against the Harry Potter book series.  The priest, who is also the president of the International Association of Exorcists, says, “Satan is behind the works.  Behind Harry Potter hides the signature of the king of the darkness, the devil.”

Search on Harry Potter.  As you can see the schools promote him and so the schools promote Satan over God.
