The Golden Compass

Many rumors about this film, which released yesterday, Dec. 7th, have been circulating and discouraging Christians from going to see it. Why are we all in an uproar about The Golden Compass? Sure, some guy hates God and wants to see Him destroyed - but he's not the only one you know! There are plenty of folks trying to do the same thing.

Do we think that if we shelter our children from this sort of world view we are doing them some sort of favor? Of course not. If we are training our children properly, we would expose them to this type of non-belief and blatant attack on God and show them the truth of God's word. We must teach them how to deal with times of questioning, not hide them away from it! Read this thoughtful article that shares my sentiment on the issue.


  1. I really liked what you (and the article) had to say. I especially like the articles suggestion to read the books WITH your kids. Kids are going to be exposed to stuff no matter how much we try to protect them. They need to know what they believe and WHY. They need to learn to discern truth from lies.
    Thanks for sharing Katie!
