Following the publication and popularization of the Harry Potter book series, many professing Christians rightly came out in protest of the books and movies. Like other books for children and teens, the Harry Potter series is about witchcraft and wizardry, sins which will send one to the lake of fire (Rev. 21:8). Witchcraft through Harry Potter has, unfortunately, been growing in popularity to the detriment of SOULS.
The Harry Potter books and movies put the wrong ideas associated with the occult in the minds of children at an impressionable age. While Christian parents may love books that motivate their children to read, they must carefully avoid all which may lead them astray from Christian beliefs, especially into something as sinister as the occult.
