Out of the three one LOTR isn't a family movie, Harry Potter has a lot of garbage, and Narnia has the best story line out of the three.

um ok back to the books, Lord of the rings and the narnia series were both written by devout catholics. well, i think cslewis was less catholic but still, they both took God very seriously. the morals in their stories are good. they both created different worlds in their books, both with good and evil, and things that could happen that don't normally in the real world.
i have no problem with walking through a wardrobe to get to a faraway land, and i see nothing wrong with a ntoher world were they are fighting for the good of the world, to keep it from being oftaken by evil.
i do have a problem with kids who go to a school to learn witchcraft or sorcery.

Well just because a christian says it is christian doesn't mean it isn't wrong. Did you no the really evil pentagrams they're "Christian" one too. does that mean they're ok to use.

Anyways back to the subject. this brings up my favorite quote does it justify the means.
If both contain magic and mystical powers and things that we should watch,think or try does it make it ok that a christian made it.

well, the reason for condensing the topics was to compare them to c what was acceptable, and where we should draw the lines.

Well, I'm trying to think of something witty to say...


((oh, wow, all three of us on at the same time? we are gonna be here for a while... XD ))

Ok, RJ, please explain your "gay" statement. Also, Jessica, I do not think we should lump Harry Potter, Narnia, and LotR together as one genre. Narnia and LotR were written by Christian authors and contain strong Christian themes and morals. Harry Potter, on the otehr hand, portrays it's "heros" as calling upon demonic powers to gain victory.


...so far: Nothin'.
