Quote# 6544

Bob, does this [Harry Potter] remind you of another prominent series of movies? 'The force be with you'??? Don't think about what you do, just let the force run what you do??? Unfortunately, there are forces around to run what the unbeliever does -- we Christians just have our wretched flesh/human nature (not body) to take over with the evil forces and the world just around to make suggestions... God is not a 'force,' or a 'higher power.' Can you not see a common denominator between Potter, Star Wars, and A[lcoholics ]A[nonymou]'s 'higher power'?

Yeah, that common denominator is God, or The Powers That Be.

Harry Potter is Christian allegories, dumbass. It's the fight between good and evil, the idea that friendship and love makes us stronger than power and violence. Kind of like the message from your beloved Jesus.

The good vs evil is present in all cultures and religions, just like war the good vs evil concept is way older then the first scrolls the Bible was culled from.
Not everything springs from the Bible, the Bible was born from earlier myths.

So there's parallels between "Harry Potter" and "Star Wars"? Both are examples (and very popular ones) of the 'Hero's Journey'. And both are examples of good fighting evil, with good overcoming and winning.

Your point, ENOCH?

"Unfortunately, there are forces around to run what the unbeliever does -- we Christians just have our wretched flesh/human nature (not body) to take over with the evil forces and the world just around to make suggestions..."

I find your faith disturbing.

"God is not a 'force,' or a 'higher power.'"

You've just admitted God isn't omnipotent, thus he's an inferior being. Ergo, 'God' doesn't exist. QED.

Expelliarmus!
