CATS, WARRIORS, PENGUINS AND KIDS

In the wake of Harry Potter's popularity, a tidal wave of dark, mystical children's books has arisen. Led by Scholastic, publishers across the country have adapted all kinds of occult beliefs and magical rituals to the tastes of young readers. Now, a decade later, children everywhere are learning to see paganism and syncretism (spiritual blends) as more "real" and "normal" than true Christianity.
Scary stories and mystical forces excite human nature. They always have! So have the corrupting social values that follow those beliefs. But unlike the mind-changing revolutions of the past, the current changes are driven by intentional worldwide social engineering. In other words, the tempting new values planted in unguarded minds through tantalizing tales fit the goals articulated by UN leaders more than half a century ago. [See UNESCO and World Health Organization] Their plan for early indoctrination involves classroom myths and shocking stories that...
Pushing this agenda (with Hillary Clinton's support), education leader Marc Tucker declared that the new educational objective "will require a change in the prevailing culture -- the attitudes, values, norms and accepted ways of doing things."
Europe follows the same global track. "Homosexual kings, lesbian mothers and gay penguins -- these are the protagonists of a new type of schoolbook for British children," according to the article, "Gay Fairy Tales for British Pupils." Promoting their message through cute, humanized animals rather than people, this plan to "raise sexually-tolerant students" will probably succeed. As UK's Project Director Elizabeth Atkinson explains:
Of course, the "reality" the books "reflect" is not real reality, but a preferred reality -- a persuasive vision of a supposedly "better" world. It demands a global spirituality, for the biggest obstacles to mass acceptance of the new "norms" are the timeless "certainties" of Biblical Truth.
Contemporary change agents know that nothing undermines faith in those trusted truths faster than today's tempting alternatives. So they train our children to love evil and despise His Word." But God tells us the exact opposite: "Abhor what is evil, cling to what is good!" (Romans 12:9)
CATS THAT WORSHIP STARS
Erin Hunter, official author of the Warrior books, actually represents two women: Cherith Baldry and Kate Gary. To popularize their love for cats, myths, astrology, and sacred sites, they have endowed their furry heroes with human minds. Cat lovers as young as six can hardly wait for the next series of books.
The first book, Into the Wild, introduces the main hero of the first series: A former "kittypet" named Rusty, who becomes Firepaw when he joins the warriors of the Thunderclan. As he rises within their ranks, Firepaw's name is changed to Fireheart, and finally to Firestar. His tribal religion looks much like the astrology and ancestral worship of ancient human tribes:
The all-powerful deity in these stories is StarClan, a growing community of departed warrior cats whose spirits are revived as stars. This collective deity hears their prayers of living cats, strengthens the faithful in their battles, guides them with omens and prophecies, and welcomes them to their starry heights when they die. Notice that the words used to describe the tribe's relationship with StarClan sound much like the Biblical words used to describe our relationship with God:
Notice that this collective "god" offers cats a personal relationship that imitates what God offers His people. In contrast to these "personal" cat gods, the magical forces behind Harry Potter, Pokemon and Star Wars are impersonal. They seem less like our God. Children don't pray to them; they just manipulate them using magic formulas. Astrology and divination can be adapted to both personal and impersonal paganism, but they have no place in Christianity:
RE-IMAGINING ANCIENT RITUALS
Long ago, stone monuments to the "host of heaven" were raised in many parts of the world. Most familiar is Stonehenge -- an ancient stone circle in England. A blend of myth, astrology, geometric measurements and shapes (triangles, rectangles, etc.) determined the placement of its massive "Bluestone" pillars. Moving shadows and rays of light would then guide its pagan celebrations: an ancient form of occult worship that God has forbidden.
The Warrior cats worship StarClan at a similar ceremonial site called Moonstone. Ponder this dialogue from Book 1:
A few pages later, Bluestar brings Firepaw to the Moonstone:
Five books later, Firepaw, now a great warrior leader named Firestar, returns to the Moonstone:
DIVINATION, OMENS AND FULL MOON
Through the ages, witchcraft, divination and fortune-telling have included scrying: a magical way of "seeing" future events or omens in a reflective surface such as a "magic mirror" or a pool of water. This scene illustrates it well:
As in witchcraft and sorcery, "magical work" requires faith in the power of ritual words or affirmations and in the spiritual significance of ritual settings such as a full moon and "sacred sites."
Concentration and visualization are key to all magical practices, explained Wiccan leader Starhawk in her occult manual, The Spiral Dance. Satan's tricks don't change through the centuries. They are merely masked behind the alluring words of changing cultures.
Much of what seems innocent and safe enough to our media-bound minds is evil to God! Remember, He said, "There shall not be found among you ... a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer... or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord." Deuteronomy 18:10-14
But, you might argue, it's just imaginary fun and fantasy! No, it's not! Jesus warned us that imagining an evil is as bad actually doing that evil.
When we follow Him, he gives us the strength to resist evil -- and to stand firm in Him no matter how great the pressure. "Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!" 1 Corinthians 15:56
