He wants to kill God

It’s amzaing how powerful the entertainment industry has become.

Rappers sing about a pink T and thousands of young boys run out and buy pink t-shirts. A few months later, the same rapper sings about a white T, and the same young boys run off to buy white t-shirts.

One movie changed the course of children’s movies and books (Harry Potter). Children saw the first film, and “BANG” they ran in droves to read a book bigger than the Bible. The phenomenon that is Harry Potter has only set a precedent for other authors and scriptwriters to strive for.

No matter what the purpose is in a movie, book, or song….it attracts children of all ages and moves them to action: to buy a new product, do something they normally wouldn’t do, or causes them to question their beliefs.

The Golden Compass is one such movie. It’s release date is Dec. 7, just in time for Christmas…but it’s message is anything but celebrating our Lord and Savior.

As Christians, I believe that we need to be wise in the decisions we make, including the movies we see. The Lord says to resist the devil (James 4:7) and flee from all evil (2 Tim. 2:22) and to focus on things that are true, pure, noble, right, and lovely (Phil. 4:8). If we allow anti-God entertainment into our lives and minds (especially impressionable children), and financially support an evil agenda we are not honoring our Lord.

The author of this movie has one purpose: to kill God. He believes he knows how to do it…through entertainment.

Read about it for yourself…. The Golden Compass.
