When did the power of the Creator become impotent?
I stopped while channel surfing and watched a scene in which a group of teens were using witchcraft to escape from something. The images were compelling. I asked myself what that scene would look like if it were teens praying to the God I profess.
I admit honestly that there are times when even in my head the sin of witchcraft seems a bit less sinful, especially when I’m seeking immediate relief.
This generation, this microwave, tiktok, and yes, witchcraft embracing world has seemingly rendered the God I serve – impotent.
Let me say first, that Harry Potter taught me that we do our kids a disservice by not teaching them not only what we believe, but also the why and how of our faith.
Attending church isn’t teaching them. Church is the pep rally for game day. It’s the day when the coach rallys support for the team and all of the hard work they put into their skill. AND YES THIS FAITH JOURNEY REQUIRES SKILL.
It’s easy to be critical about the fictional school called Hogwarts. And it’s even easier to ignore the teaching of the power that awakened Lazarus. We, parents, are responsible for the teaching and the gathering of the knowledge so that we can teach.
Deep, deep sigh. Never forget that Hebrews 11:6 and be ever diligent.
