Parental Warning - The Golden Compass Movie

Opening tomorrow in theatres is a movie marketed towards children titled "The Golden Compass" starring Nicole Kidman, Daniel Craig, Kevin Bacon, Eva Green, and John Hurt. 

Below is a review from

This film is an adaptation of part of an objectionable trilogy of novels. Titled His Dark Materials, the books were written to be an influential atheistic counterpart to "The Chronicles of Narnia" and "The Lord of the Rings." They are aimed at children and were written by anti-God activist Phillip Pullman who was featured in the 2005 documentary series "Why Atheism?". He is described as "one of England's most outspoken atheists" by New Yorker journalist Laura Miller.

Pullman said in an interview, "My books are about killing God. If we're talking on the scale of human life and the things we see around us, I'm an atheist. There's no God here. There never was. But if you go out into the vastness of space, well, I'm not so sure. On that level, I'm an agnostic." [Steve Meacham, "The Shed Where God Died," The Syndney Morning Herald (December 12, 2003).]

Jeremiah 32:27
NIV I am the LORD, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?
KJV Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?
NASB Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh; is anything too difficult for Me?"
Jeremiah 32:27

   The answer God gave is a summary of everything He had proclaimed through Jeremiah to this point-His judgment on the sin of Judah and His promise to restore them in the future. What Jeremiah needed was a reminder. This principle of remembrance and repetition of truth is a biblical one (Deut. 6:4-9, 20-25).

Did you know?
    Jeremiah delivers his prophecies in Jerusalem, capital of Judah. When Babylonian invaders conquer the land, they deport much of the population to Babylon, a city near what is now Baghdad. Jeremiah and a group of survivors who remain in Judah later escape to Egypt.
