Not a Children's Movie

I was recently made aware of the movie The Golden Compass and it strikes me as one that I would not want any child to see. What one sees as a young child embeds in the brain more strongly than that which we see as adults. I can still recall a certain Dean Koontz book I read as a teenager that affected my thinking about love into early adulthood. It took quite some time meditating on 1 Corinthians 13 to get the twisted idea of love the book portrayed out of my head.
I encourage all parents to be informed about what is out there waiting to influence their children. I also think it is important to expose them to the reality that not everyone agrees with their family values. However, when those values are presented in such a contemporary and entertaining way it will be hard for children to not accept them as the truth.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippians 4.8
