Dark Matter

Presumably the blogosphere is already abuzz with warnings about The Golden Compass, a New Line Cinema production scheduled to open on December 7.

The warnings are justified: the film is based on Philip Pullman's trilogy His Dark Materials, which is nothing less than a deliberate assault on God, the church, and the saving work of Jesus Christ.  While the film is unlikely to be as overt as the book in its anti-Christianity, it will undoubtedly promote sales of the book and expose children, especially, to the seductions of an anti-God worldview.

It would be helpful, though, if the evangelical church could avoid giving the film undue publicity by making its release a cause celebre -- if we could avoid, in other words, the Last Temptation of Christ phenomenon.  It would be more helpful for us to give a clear warning to our congregations and then simply refuse to see the movie or read the books.
