Why Does Christianity Condemn Harry Potter, While Approving The Chronicles of Narnia and The Lord of the Rings?

ByRolando José OlivoRolando José Olivo

Why does Christianity condemn Harry Potter while approving The Chronicles of Narnia and The Lord of the Rings? The answers to this question are not simple neither intuitive, and correspond to religious and theological reasons, which predominate in the background and orientation of these novels. Clive Lewis and John Tolkien stood out for the religious and Christian content of their literary works (with a conflict between good and evil), and also reflected their concern about the way in which principles and moral values are being lost, in favor of a liberal, hedonistic and secular thought, that relativizes ethics, and despises religious beliefs and its practices. While Joanne Rowling goes to other way, extolling occult practices such as magic and witchcraft (condemned by monotheistic religious for several centuries), and supporting the liberal and immoral thought of Postmodernity and ideologies of New Age. This publication analyzes the novels of The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter, in order to give definitive answers to the question previously posed.
