The books on our shelves contain a lot of good things but are also prone to error. No matter what we read, whether for pleasure or education, I do not believe we should accept any idea that isn’t biblical. Books should be divided in our minds into two categories: “Scripture” and “all else.” There is danger in communicating that some books are trustworthy and that others are untrustworthy. Of course, there are levels of trust, but only Scripture is truly trustworthy. Certain books will have certain errors and certain dangers. Some are more dangerous than others. We benefit from being aware of the specific dangers of specific books. This knowledge will affect whether we read and how we read. The purpose of this article is to elaborate on some of the dangers in the Harry Potter series while maintaining their value.
