Children’s story writer Terry Prachet nearly gets it right with his world view on his view of the world. He thought it’s on a Tortoise but the Bible(KJV1611) clearly states that the world is flat. And now so called NASA scienticians have admitted it with this up to the minute data, I assume it was from Hubble microscope or the LHC or something.

Revelation 7:1 And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree

1 Corinthians 11:3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

Revelation 22:15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

Leviticus 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

After you thoughtful analysis Dr. Niles, I decided to do some research of my own. As a home educator with access to Google, I now have just as much knowledge and authority as any writer, essayist, or literary critic of course. Even the foolish British ones who think they're so amusing with their "dry humor" and their "wit" and their "jolly good old man I saaaaaaay."

More importantly, in addition to the many hours I've looked online for information, I asked the Holy Ghost to guide me (James 1:5). I am happy to share what I've found for the sake of others who may be tempted to think of this Terry Prachet fellow as a clever writer, or merely a man who spins an amusing tale, and think these might be good bedtime stories for children.

The book in which Prachet's world is described is called "The Colour of Magic (1983)" and the series takes place on a magical world called "Discworld." This is where the problems begin. The LORD Almighty has no high opinion of magic and magicians (Leviticus 19:31; Deuteronomy 18:10-12; Revelation 21:8). Christians will recall He worked through Moses to humiliate the Pharaoh's magicians (a wizarding duel if you will, but not like in Harry Potter because Harry Potter isn't real).
And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so as the LORD had commanded:
and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh, and before his servants, and it became a serpent.
Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers:
now the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments.
Exodus 7:10-11
Nevertheless, Pratchet treats magic like a normal, credible, alternative reality.
Quote:
We've strayed into a zone with a high magical index,' he said. 'Don't ask me how. Once upon a time a really powerful magic field must have been generated here, and we're feeling the after-effects.'

'Precisely,' said a passing bush.
Quote:
It was octarine, the colour of magic. It was alive and glowing and vibrant and it was the undisputed pigment of the imagination, because wherever it appeared it was a sign that mere matter was a servant of the powers of the magical mind. It was enchantment itself.

But Rincewind always thought it looked a sort of greenish-purple.
Quote:
That's what's so stupid about the whole magic thing, you know. You spend twenty years learning the spell that makes nude virgins appear in your bedroom, and then you're so poisoned by quicksilver fumes and half-blind from reading old grimoires that you can't remember what happens next.
On this world, the Lord Christ Jesus isn't mentioned even once! This is in defiance of reality (Psalm 19:1). Why, if anything, Jesus is mocked as it is implied He may be but one of many gods with various accomplishments about which one may or may not brag, but most people don't appreciate in any case.

Quote:
on the disc, the Gods are not so much worshipped as blamed
And who would follow and worship a god if they can do magic willy-nilly anyway, I'd like to know.

This story is high in imagination and as a mother and educator, I cannot condone such an abomination. Imagination is not good for children! The Holy Bible never talks about the value of the Imagination, and whenever something out of the ordinary happens, it is personally delivered into the mind by the LORD Almighty Himself. The Apostle John was given a Holy Revelation about the End Times and Thereafter, and we would not say his imagery was based on imagination. Imagination is the work of journalists and animators, not Christians.

In my opinion, children should be given a healthy dose of reality and their entertainment should be more of the same. A child derives authentic joy from fulfilling his nature, and that means pleasing and obeying their parents (Ephesians 6:1). This is the LORD's Divine Plan, as children then can naturally learn to anticipate the desires of Jesus (Ecclesiastes 12:13; John 14:15).


Hello, my name is Mary. I hope to fellowship with you! That is, unless you don't listen to church authority (Deuteronomy 17:12); are a witch (Exodus 22:17); are a homosexual (Leviticus 20:13; Romans 1:24-32); or fortuneteller (Leviticus 20:27) or a snotty kid who hits their dad (Exodus 21:15); or curses their parents (Proverbs 20:20; Leviticus 20:9); an adulterer (Leviticus 20:10); a non-Christian (Exodus 22:19; Deuteronomy 13:7-12; Deuteronomy 17:2-5;Romans 1:24-32); an atheist (2 Chronicles 15:12-13); or false prophet (Zechariah 13:3); from the town of one who worships another, false god (Deuteronomy 13:13-19); were a non-virgin bride (Deuteronomy 22:20-21); or blasphemer (Leviticus 24:10-16), as God calls for your execution and will no doubt send you to Hell, and I have no interest developing a friendship with the Spiritually Walking Dead.

If I recall, God associates imagination with evil.
I'll check The Bible.................................

Oh, yes it's in Lamentations. I was thinking about this earlier, how the Jews continually rejected God despite all His promises and were repeatedly chastised as a result. They tended to complain about that but God always gave His reasons.

Lamentations 1:8-9 Jerusalem hath grievously sinned; therefore she is removed: all that honoured her despise her, because they have seen her nakedness: yea, she sigheth, and turneth backward. Her filthiness is in her skirts; she remembereth not her last end; therefore she came down wonderfully: she had no comforter. O LORD, behold my affliction: for the enemy hath magnified himself.

Of course we understand that it was not so much the enemy magnifying himself as Jerusalem having grievously sinned and being smitten with evil, created by imagination, and thus brought low. Well, worse than that: carted off into captivity.

God explains the role of imagination for us, but first there is a description of the suffering entailed. Quite a lengthy description but here is the gist:

Lamentations 3:2-8a, 60-61 He hath led me, and brought me into darkness, but not into light. Surely against me is he turned; he turneth his hand against me all the day. My flesh and my skin hath he made old; he hath broken my bones. He hath builded against me, and compassed me with gall and travail. He hath set me in dark places, as they that be dead of old. He hath hedged me about, that I cannot get out: he hath made my chain heavy. Also when I cry and shout etc.
This carries on at length even though we know the cause from Chapter 1.
In any case God was very clear what would happen if His people turned away from Him.
Resuming from verse 60..
Thou hast seen all their vengeance and all their imaginations against me. Thou hast heard their reproach, O LORD, and all their imaginations against me.

A prayer follows requesting God to curse them with sorrow of heart, persecution and destruction. The point however is the function of imagination in this. From it sprang all the horrors visited upon this wretched people and we know what those horrors were because God, in His mercy, explained the consequences of declining His love when He undertook to protect His people but they dissed Him anyway. I will append that passage below for reference. In the meantime however it is so important to quell the flames of imagination, especially where things like "yoga" or "tai chi" or even "astrology" are concerned as is so prevalent today. Education is a critical environment where God's Word may be instilled, for example as reading lessons and from actual historical examples recorded in The Bible. It really is the best book to read!

Quote:
DEUTERONOMY 28 .KJV
15-20
But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee: Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in the field. Cursed shall be thy basket and thy store. Cursed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy land, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep. Cursed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and cursed shalt thou be when thou goest out. The LORD shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me.
21-26 The LORD shall make the pestilence cleave unto thee, until he have consumed thee from off the land, whither thou goest to possess it. The LORD shall smite thee with a consumption, and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew; and they shall pursue thee until thou perish. And thy heaven that is over thy head shall be brass, and the earth that is under thee shall be iron. The LORD shall make the rain of thy land powder and dust: from heaven shall it come down upon thee, until thou be destroyed. The LORD shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies: thou shalt go out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them: and shalt be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth. And thy carcase shall be meat unto all fowls of the air, and unto the beasts of the earth, and no man shall fray them away.
27-37 The LORD will smite thee with the botch of Egypt, and with the emerods, and with the scab, and with the itch, whereof thou canst not be healed. The LORD shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and astonishment of heart: And thou shalt grope at noonday, as the blind gropeth in darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save thee. Thou shalt betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with her: thou shalt build an house, and thou shalt not dwell therein: thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not gather the grapes thereof. Thine ox shall be slain before thine eyes, and thou shalt not eat thereof: thine ass shall be violently taken away from before thy face, and shall not be restored to thee: thy sheep shall be given unto thine enemies, and thou shalt have none to rescue them. Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all the day long: and there shall be no might in thine hand. The fruit of thy land, and all thy labours, shall a nation which thou knowest not eat up; and thou shalt be only oppressed and crushed alway: So that thou shalt be mad for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see. The LORD shall smite thee in the knees, and in the legs, with a sore botch that cannot be healed, from the sole of thy foot unto the top of thy head. The LORD shall bring thee, and thy king which thou shalt set over thee, unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers have known; and there shalt thou serve other gods, wood and stone. And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither the LORD shall lead thee.

I think the problem here is mainly one of "magic". Theologians have for centuries tried to distinguish between miraculous acts performed by the One True Deity, and "magic".

The matter was concluded for me in a strange way: I was about to remonstrate with an atheist who was heckling a Baptist Street Preacher by shouting the same argument. I am glad that I did not, because the Baptist preacher came back with the final logical that destroyed the atheist's argument. He said,


"God does not do magic."


I have never felt the need to go further than this as it is the perfect explanation to a Christian.


If you aren't a Christian, then it's you who have the problem, not God.




Ec:7:16: Be not righteous over much; neither make thyself over wise: why shouldest thou destroy thyself?
