For those of you out there who are parents and enjoy attending the occasional movie with you kids; here’s one I would definitely not recommend. Watch out for the new movie called “The Golden Compass.”
I’ll be the first to tell you that I’ve not done a ton of research on this, but the guy who wrote it, Philip Pullman, desired to counter C.S. Lewis’ “Chronicles of Narnia.” (Disclaimer…I’m about to spoil the end of this movie if you desire to watch it.) Supposedly, in the end of the movie God dies and everyone is freed from His tyranny and injustice. The point is to reveal that life is so much better when there is no God.
Now believe me, I am not one to be constantly warning about the dangers of anything that doesn’t contain blatantly Christian themes. I am, however, very concerned when I see atheistic propaganda in the form of a “children’s movie.”
