I have issues with books involving magic. Therefore I have issues with Tolkein, although my family and other people I respect and hang out with greatly admire him. Miss 15 posted her thoughts recently in “Magic and The Lord of the Rings” and I am convinced. I think.
So I may try Tolkein again. But I must remember that if I’m reading with a guilty conscience, then it is wrong for me, even though it might be perfectly alright for other Christians to read (Romans 14:22-23). This is always a complicated scenario and can involve much second guessing.
Do hop over to read the article; it’s long but worth pondering. I am thankful that Miss 15 was able to articulate and support her opinions so clearly. There’s always so much to learn from my teens!
What about you? How do you deal with such issues?
