    More Sermon Details:   
    Peter Jackson has done it again. The Hobbit is setting box office records for its first weekend out of the chute. Does this fantasy genre constitute an irreconcilable synthesis of pagan mythology/witchcraft and Christian themes? How does a Christian family handle these motion pictures? Should you let your kids watch them? Kevin Swanson and his daughter Emily discuss the positives and negatives of this blockbuster film based somewhat on the Tolkien novel.

    “ Great Sermon! ”
    Although I like C.S.Lewis and his Narnia books, i wouldnt like the Hobbit or 'usually' anything else out of England. Wasnt England going 'downhill' spiritually when they let Darwin get a foothold in their country? besides I notice that many occultic scenarios come out of that country especilaly since the late 60s--this is just a thought

    not for children (12/22/2012)
    “ not for children ”
    Its too terrifying for children or even youth. Plus it glorifies pot smoking and getting high through various joke scenes where it plays down getting high as a fun thing. It would definitely give children terrifying nightmares. A lot of it also is filmed way too fast which looks like one of those 3d walk through shooting games which dements your mind when you play them due to the speed and disorientation. It also has very very very dark visions of black magic ideas and spectres which would terrify even most adults. It also specifically refers to necromancy and gives examples that it was done in the time of the story. A new age basis for good in the movie, no mention of God in any way shape or form, similar to star wars the force types of beliefs and basis for the claimed good heros.
