Please ignore this "pastor." He is *not* representative of Christians

• In Response to: Extremely OFFENSIVE film and music, Potter is ... (Pastor C St. John)

Believe me, folks, this fellow is not representative of all Christian thought on the matter. I have heard actual sermons defending Harry Potter as the Huck Finn of our generation and helping to encourage kids to read. This fellow is either well-intentioned but misguided or just out to stir controversy for its own sake... pay no heed.

> Bottom line: This film is [not of God]

And your rant is of a shallow mindset brought upon by the unthinking tradition of the doctrine of man's religion. There is a difference between faith in Christ, diligently seeking Him and upholding your own dogma as the [word of God]. I have a hard time picturing Jesus boycotting children's films. Regardless of my opinion of the quality of the first Harry Potter movie, did it not support positive values such as the strength and pureness of love? Jesus was a spiritual radical, and folks like you twist his name, words and actions into ham-fisted, illogical ignorance that not only is more akin to the pharisees that he was persecuted by, but more often that not, turns off those your are trying to "reach." The biggest obstacle to genuine Christianity in the world today is often some Christians themselves...

This all said, John Williams is a fine composer, and the Harry Potter music, while not spectacular, is quite enjoyable. How are YOU the one who discerns what music is OF GOD? Are there specific chord progressions and orchestration styles that are of God and those that aren't? Please, anyone reading this, pay no attention to this misguided fellow. He is represtentative of nothing but his own personal biases.
