How Should Christians React to Harry Potter?

I would be lying if I said I didn't grow up with Harry Potter. For those who might be unaware, Harry Potter is a fantasy book series written by J.K.

When the wizard tried to kill Harry too as a baby, a lightning bolt scar was left on his head instead. On his eleventh birthday, he receives an acceptance from a magic school called Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. A half-giant named Hagrid brings him to the wizarding world, where he attends Hogwarts and meets two other students known as Ron Weasly and Hermoine Granger. During his years of studying, he also faces the same dark wizard that tried to kill him, known as Lord Voldemort. And that's basically the bare-bones premise. The books have also been adapted into a successful billion-dollar film franchise, with a new film based on each book released every few years. As a kid, I really liked Harry Pott
