Satan and his pomps
The goal of the education at the Poudlard School is neither beauty, nor truth, nor goodness. On the contrary, the subjects studied constantly, the ever-present topics are ugliness, vengeance and lies. For example, an entire passage gives the description of a repugnant plant, resembling a mollusk and having buboes filled with pus, which one must break open in order to gather with precaution their very precious contents and make of them a marvelous remedy. The details of the colors and the odors are described in minute detail. In another part there is most complacently depicted a monstrous creature, a sort of beast which is half toad and half octopus, without a mouth, but which must be fed (Harry asks himself how, - he has common senseGÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Â¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Âª) with ant eggs, frog livers, and pieces of snakes. These lessons of practical work take place in an atmosphere both malicious and nasty. The hideous dispute monstrously.
In the 4th volume of Harry Potter the culminating point is an unequivocal description of a satanic rite which includes the death of a child, the profanation of the deceased in cemeteries, a bloody sacrifice and blasphemies.
White magic and black magic
Harry and his friends study different arts of witchcraft and we would like to humor her in letting ourselves be carried along by the author in this world of magic fantasy. Now we have men being changed into animals and vice-versa. And then we see, and this is not the most difficult, gold or delicious food made to appear. According to necessity, one can rejuvenate or age as one wishes. Teeth can grow according to ones desires, and of course they can also become more beautiful. With the magic cape one can become - or make others become - invisible, one can cover long distances in a few seconds (in case of car breakdown it’s the “magic command of car accidents” that intervenes). Letters and packages are distributed in the twinkling of an eye and those who make mistakes in their witchcraft appear immediately before the “Commission Against Bad Usage of Magic”, etc. etc.
As we can see, the imagination - the lunacy? has no bounds.
That is why these books are exactly the contrary of what one would call "inoffensive" or "recreational" books
However, one discovers, dissimulated under what appears to be an inoffensive game, a spirit of seriousness, bloodthirsty and merciless, which shrinks from nothing in annihilating every rival. At the school and from the books of sorcery, the children learn the power of cursing and injuring one another. A professor teaches irreversible curses which assure a complete domination and an annihilation of the victim in an absolute sacrifice.
From esotericism to satanism
It may be nothing but an unsettling coincidence that this mortal curse is depicted exactly on page 666 (German edition). But it is not by chance that ugliness leads to hatred and hatred leads to death.
Who would dare to still speak of innocent games?
In the 4th volume of Harry Potter the culminating point is an unequivocal description of a satanic rite which includes the death of a child, the profanation of the deceased in cemeteries, a bloody sacrifice and blasphemies. Lord Voldemort, who personifies Satan, but who is never called anything but “You-know-who” (6), reunites his spirit with a human body, thus giving himself a new life. It is not appropriate to reproduce here the rite described. However, it can be affirmed that the formulas used in the rite are, without any possible doubt, formulas which are blasphemous and anti-Trinitarian and which claim to create life, to reproduce it and to copy it, imitating the divine act of creation in a diabolical manner.
Of course, the story shows Harry fighting against Voldemort; it is precisely this which permits the obscure and confused theories of “myth of the child-god” to be propagated, even though the Evil is never completely vanquished, but on the contrary is, in a subtle way, glorified.
It is truly a pagan world, an anti-Christian world which is described all throughout the story of Harry Potter. The world of sorcery, of magic and of esotericism is depicted and put forward to the imagination and to the admiration of the reader as “a normal world”. This world, which is that of Satan, is “fascinating”, - “GÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Â¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚ÂªBecause by your enchantments all the nations have been led astrayGÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Â¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Âª” (7).
That is why these books are exactly the contrary of what one would call “inoffensive” or “recreational” books. It is strongly probable that the young readers (and the adults) do not understand clearly - and maybe not at all - the profound implications and the dangers that these works contain. However, the minds and the hearts are thereby prepared for a time when Satan will reign all-powerful, world-wide, and when, in appearance, he can no longer be conquered by Christ; for a time when the Moldus, the Christians, will no longer have the strength to fight against the Evil.
The author of the adventures of Harry Potter has in a certain manner acknowledged, declaring to a journalist of the London Times: “These books help the children to understand that this feeble and weak Son of God is nothing but a joke which still has nine lives, and that he will be humiliated, annihilated, at the coming of the deluge of fire.” (
It is certainly not an exaggeration to affirm that those who conceive and organize the intense media hype which ensures the promotion of these books - the 4th volume came out just before Christmas, exactly at midnight - are perfectly informed of the underlying stakes involved and of the immense combat between Christ and Satan, and they know perfectly into which camp they have enlisted.
As for the Christian, he has gone with Christ.
At this point, it is evident that to differentiate oneself from this dangerous craze is not only a necessity, but also an act of testimony. - (Alias, December 16, 2000) "
