As many of you know, The Golden Compass, one of three films, based on Phillip Pullman’s books “His Dark Materials,” opens today (December 7th) in theatres. These books and movies have a clear agenda in promoting atheism to children.
I encourage you to read Dr. Mohler’s blog as you consider the ways in which Christians should respond to challenges like these. My wife and I discovered that our nine year old daughter already had this book in her possession! Thankfully, I had placed it on my bookshelf and she has not had time to read it yet. I know that we cannont (and should not) isolate our children from things like this, but I’m thankful that I can now prepare her for what the author is trying to accomplish, and discourage her from being fooled!
As Dr. Mohler says, Christianity is not going to be toppled by a few fictional books. But, this is a great opportunity to show the futility of life apart from Jesus Christ, our only true Savior.
