The Golden Compass

Christians who have heard about and/or are thinking about seeing the movie, The Golden Compass, need to read the blog below (click on link below). Dr. Albert Mohler is the Southern Seminary president and has seen the movie and read the trilogy of books that it is based on. He believes that we as Christians should be well informed on what the movie and books are about, so we can accurately represent the truth.

The author of The Golden Compass, Philip Pullman, is a hard core atheist with an agenda. He hates C.S. Lewis, the author of the Christian series, Chronicles of Narnia. He told Hannah Rosin, an Atlantic contributing editor, that Lewis's famous work is "morally loathsome" and "one of the most ugly and poisonous things I ever read." Chronicles of Narnia, he said, "is the Christian one . . . . And mine is the non-Christian."

It is long, but worth the read:
