The Indoctrination of our children through Media

Dear Children's Ministries Leaders, for many years I have been conducting workshops addressing the theological indoctrination of our children through video games, movies, television programs and toys. Over years what could be termed as a subtle suggestion has turned into an outright attack from the enemy. The media and supplemental material: toys, games, reading material glorify the spiritualism movement that E.G. White speaks of being prevalent in the last days. 

We can not dictate to parents what to let their children watch or what
to let them play with, but I do think we have a responsibility as
educators and children's ministries leaders to make them aware of things
that could adversely affect their walk with our Lord.  Please
prayerfully consider the information below and share it as appropriate.

In His Service,

THIS IS A PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM DR. BRYAN CUTSHALL

Yesterday, I was handed a children's book by a staff member who said, 'I
think you need to see this.'

The book is published by Scholastic and is part of a collection of
books. The book I was given is called The Golden Compass. This
children's book is one of the most alarming things I have ever read.
What makes it worse is that a movie based on the book premieres in
December. Both the book and the movie introduce atheism to children.
The story ends with Adam and Eve killing God.

THIS IS A MOVIE THAT WE MUST PROTEST AND OPPOSE AS CHRISTIANS.
Please educate yourself on this by checking out the links I have
provided below and help me spread the word.  Do not remain silent on
this issue.  This is a time for the family of GOD to stand together.

Senior Pastor, Twin Rivers Worship Center Founder and CEO,

Focus on the Family has several notices written about it. You can click

You can also read more about it below.

 I checked this out at snopescom; unfortunately, it's true... There will
be a new children's movie out in December called 'The Golden Compass.'
The movie has been described as 'atheism for kids' and is based on the
first book of a trilogy entitled 'His Dark Materials'
written by Phillip Pullman. Pullman is a militant atheist and secular
humanist who despises C. S. Lewis and the 'Chronicles of Narnia.' His
motivation for writing this trilogy was specifically to counteract
Lewis' symbolisms of Christ portrayed in the Narnia series.

Clearly, Pullman's main objective is to bash Christianity and promote
atheism. Pullman left little doubt about his intentions when he said in
a 2003 interview, 'my books are about killing God.' He has even stated
that he wants 'to kill God in the minds of children.' It has been said
of Pullman that he is 'the writer the atheists would be praying for, if
atheists prayed.'

While 'The Golden Compass' movie itself may seem mild and innocent, the
books are a much different story. In the trilogy, a young streetwise
girl becomes enmeshed in an epic struggle to ultimately defeat the
oppressive forces of a senile God. Another character, an ex-nun,
describes Christianity as 'a very powerful and convincing mistake.' In
the final book, characters representing Adam and Eve eventually kill
God, who at times is called YAHWEH. Each book in the trilogy gets
progressively worse regarding Pullman's hatred of Jesus Christ.

'The Golden Compass' is set to premier December 7, during the Christmas
season and will probably be heavily advertised. Promoters hope that
unsuspecting parents will take their children to see the movie, that
they will enjoy the movie, and that the children will want the books for
Christmas. Please boycott the movie and the books. Also, pass this
information along to everyone you know. This will help to educate
parents, so that they will know the agenda of the movie.
