Should Christians read Harry Potter?

Ouch. A bit feisty. A lot of people believe in magic, you're in no place to declare that.

Crimson has a kind of borderline offensive way of posting.

No, I don't think they should. I never really got the hype of kids running around in dresses waving sticks in the air. There are plenty of other ways to promote imagination without involving Wiccan practices. Give kids a blank canvas and let them go crazy.

I think if you are going to "promote" something, it has to be your intention to. If you're pretending to pull a rabbit out of your hat, your intention in most cases is not to promote a cult.

It's your opinion, really, but here's my two cents. 
Harry Potter is much more than dresses (robes) and "sticks." It's sacrifice, love, friendship, bravery, and good vs. evil.
 Harry Potter has lost so much. (I don't want to spoil it for some readers) He's lost many family. 
He was verbally abused by his aunt and uncle and physically abused by his cousin; he was bullied at school, yet he turned out to be nice. He found out that a dark wizard wants to kill him. 
And he accepts that. 
I think kids should think whenever they're down about Harry and how he was treated and how much he lost. That motivates me to do whatever I want to accomplish. 

Dumbledore.

If your religion dictates that you cannot read Harry Potter because they say, "Abracadabra!" then you seriously need to rethink your life.

Ignorance like this is why I don't believe.

I think the most important thing here is the acceptance that a dark wizard wants to kill him.

It's a powerful lesson for everyone with dark wizard enemies. I know my life turned around when I finally accepted it. 

Mutual caring relationships require kindness and patience, tolerance, optimism, joy in the other's achievements, confidence in oneself, and the ability to give without undue thought of gain.

It's a book. It's fictional, and completely surreal. No person I have ever met who has read Harry Potter believes it. It's not meant to offend any religions whatsoever. It supports imagination.


Yeah, I agree.


You'd have to be stupid to believe the Bible, it's only a fictional book that supports imagination, yeah.



No, you're not stupid. I believe in the bible, because that's my religious view. You don't, I don't care. But now I'm reporting you.
