"J K Rowling: 'Christianity inspired Harry Potter"  By Ray Gano

WHAT???

Yep, that was the headline in the London Telegraph.

Pretty amazing!

If you really believe that, I got a bridge I can sell you along with some great swampland.

Here is how the article opens…

"The pope may have condemned the Harry Potter books, but J K Rowling has now revealed that Christianity has been one of her major inspirations.

Breaking her silence on the much-debated question as to whether religious themes permeate her books, Rowling confirmed that they echoed her personal struggle with faith." (1)

In today's pluralistic relative ideas and liberal theology, this sounds peachy - keen and makes so much sense. The world rejoices in Rowling and her so called profession.

Here is what Rowling says about her books...

"To me, the religious parallels have always been obvious," Rowling said. "But I never wanted to talk too openly about it because I thought it might show people who just wanted the story where we were going." (1)

But here is the kicker...

"At the end of her latest and final installment in the series, there are specific references to Christianity and themes of life after death and resurrection."

"At one point Harry visits his parents' graves and finds two biblical passages inscribed on their tombstones. "(1)

Well praise the Lord and pass the potatoes!

HEY ETHEL.. These here are CHRISTIAN BOOKS fer sure. They got bible verses on some tombstones!

Do you realize there are Luke warm carnal Christians that have that exact ideals?

But here is a very troubling statement from Rowling...

"On any given moment if you asked me if I believe in life after death, I think if you polled me regularly through the week, I think I would come down on the side of yes - that I do believe in life after death.

"But it's something I wrestle with a lot. It preoccupies me a lot, and I think that's very obvious within the books." (1)

When someone is a washed in the blood Christian, they have no question as to where they will spend eternity. In fact, they don't question eternity at all. Why is that?

Here is what Christ stated...

John 14:6 (KJV) Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Romans 10:13 (KJV) For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Romans 10:10 (KJV) For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

It is promises like the ones above which we as blood bought souls cleave too....
