Potter Mania Fulfills Ellen White's Prophecy on End-time Spiritualism
The following item on the
Harry Potter mania was posted to an SDA Internet forum:
“With the latest mania of
Harry Potter, I feel I have to send this as a warning about the
last days of witchcraft mention in 1 Tim 4:1.
Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart
from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
Christian parents or otherwise that let their children read and watch
this garbage cannot blame them if they end up in the occult.
A letter written to a Pastor that I am forwarding to you as it might be something
that you should know-
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. Go
to Amazon.com and read
the reviews. Hear the touting by educators and even
Christian teachers about how "It's great to see the youth
so eagerly embracing the reading experience!"
Harry Potter is the creation of a former UK English teacher who promotes
witchcraft and Satanism. Harry is a 13 year old 'wizard.' Her creation
openly blasphemes Jesus and God and promotes sorcery, seeking revenge
upon anyone who upsets them by giving you examples (even the sources with
authors and titles) of spells, rituals, and demonic powers. I
think the problem is that parents have not reviewed the material.
The name seems harmless enough... Harry Potter.
But that is where it all ends. Let me give you a
few quotes from some of the influenced readers themselves: 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
," said Hartland, WI, 10 year old Craig Nowell,
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 when asked about her favorite character: "
Hermione is my favorite, because she's smart and has a kitty
," said 6 yearold Jessica Lehman of Easley,
SC. " Jesus died because He was weak and stupid."
And here is dear Ashley, a 9 year old, the typical average age reader of
Harry Potter: "I used to believe in what they taught us at
Sunday school, said Ashley, conjuring up an ancient spell to summon Cerebus, the three-headed hound of hell. "But
the Harry Potter books showed me that magic is real,
something I can learn and use right now, and that the Bible is nothing but boring
DOES THIS GET YOUR ATTENTION!! If not, how about a
quote from a High Priest of Satanism: "Harry is an absolute godsend 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...14 MILLION children and young adults!]
It makes me physically ill, people! 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
Hollywood can produce nothing new to give them the next 'high. 'Parents have neglected to see what their children are
reading and doing, and simply seem satisfied that' Little Johnny is
interested in reading.' AND... educators
and the NEA are PUSHING this with NO WARNING as to the
effects or the contents.
Still not convinced? I will leave you with something to let
you make up your own mind. And finally, a quote from the author
herself, J.K.Rowling, describing the objections of
Christian reviewers to her writings: "I think it's 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 and cavort in victory."
My hope is that you will see fit to become involved in getting the word out
about this garbage. Please FWD to every pastor, teacher, and
Parent you know. This author has now
published FOUR BOOKS in less than 2 years of this 'encyclopedia of Satanism'
and is surely going to write more.
I also ask all Christians to please pray for this lost woman's soul.
Pray also for the Holy Spirit to work in the young minds of those who are
reading this garbage that they may be delivered from its harm.
Lastly, pray for all parents to grow closer to their children, and that a
bond of sharing thoughts and spiritual intimacy will grow between them.”
