The Golden Compass is a new movie that will come out in December. Commercials and trailers are beginning now. While the movie looks like it’s along the lines of the Chronicles of Narnia, there is a deep darkness to this movie that should motivate Christian families to stay away. The movie is based on a series of books called His Dark Materials and is supposed to be much worse than the film. Creators of the film are hoping to release the movies, have kids see it and then be enticed to read the books. But the author is an atheist who is promoting his atheistic world view. Along with a whole host of troubling concepts, the final book has the heroine killing God.

While I am never into boycotting a movie or anything, I am concerned that parents know what their child is watching and reading. Everything may be permissible, but not everything is profitable for training a child in the way he should go. Please pass this information on to parents you know!
