Warning to Christians!


In today's entertainment culture, many Christians are
embracing subtle and not so subtle material that is
opposed to a Christian worldview. One not so subtle
movie, riding on the success of other children's adventure
books, is the Anti- Christian propaganda from Atheist
Phillip Pullman in his first installment called
"The Golden Compass".

A new film from New Line Cinema, 'The Golden
Compass,' is due for release this week. It is based
on a book of the same name (also titled 'Northern
Lights' in the UK) written by prominent British
atheist, Philip Pullman.

The film has been variously billed as:

- "This Year's [Christ]mas Blockbuster",
- a "classic ... outshines even the likes of Potter
and Narnia."

Philip Pullman has gone on record as saying:

- “I’m trying to undermine the basis of Christian
belief”;
- “I am all for the death of God”;
- “My books are about killing God.”

He has poured this hatred for God into 'The Golden
Compass' - and, to an even greater degree, into the
remaining two books belonging to the same series (the
title of the series is, 'His Dark Materials').

It has been claimed that the anti-God sentiment that
runs through Pullman's books has been dumbed down for
film to minimise offence.

However, we should not be complacent; the film is
bait for the books! Unsuspecting parents who take
their children to see the movie may be impelled to
buy the books as a Christmas present.

And no parent who wants to bring their children up
in the faith of Christ will want anything to do with
these books - or, by extension, this film!

You have been warned, and I do hope you shall seriously
heed the warning.

Mark
