Satanic or superb?  Wow – those of you really against are REALLY against.  
A4C: “I am really appalled by people who call themselves Christians and read satanic books like Harry Potter.”
Hmmm.
I faced it a long time ago – the world is ruled by the fallen angel himself.  Trying to avoid everything that may have satanic influence is like trying to stay dry when walking in a rainstorm.  That’s why we have the armor of Christ; to keep us "dry in the storm".  
I haven’t read any Potter books – it’s just not my genre – but I have read everything Dean Koontz has written so I suppose A4C would be “appalled” at me also.   Smiley
I look at it this way – if it makes you sweat stay out of the kitchen, but don’t condemn those who can take the heat.  For instance – I am extremely uncomfortable reading books or watching movies with strong sexual context.  Sorry – I’m just very weak in that area and am uncomfortable with the temptation.  But occult “stuff” doesn’t tempt me in the least – I feel no wish/want/need to do ‘magic’ – and it doesn’t scare me in the least.
A4C; do you turn the TV every time an old rerun of ‘I Dream of Jeanie” comes on?  (I do – but it’s not because of the magic!)   Grin
I think all of us have weaknesses in our armor – and those weaknesses vary from person to person.  Like my late Aunt Rosie used to tell me – “If it makes you feel guilty DON’T DO IT”.
I guess there is another side to being familiar with the "occult";  "Know thy enemy"(?)
