Harry Potter: A Spirit Conspiracy?

 

 

 

This documentary by Joe Schimmel focuses on the Harry Potter phenomenon that has swept the world since author J.K. Rowling introduced her best-selling book series. But is Potter-mania merely the result of imaginative writing and clever marketing? Or could there be a hidden power behind the craze that has “cast a spell” on adults and children alike? Pastor Joe Schimmel is pastor of Blessed Hope Chapel and founder of Good Fight Ministries. He has spent nearly 25 years researching cults and the occult from a Biblical perspective. His research has led him to believe that the “seducing spirits” prophesied of in the Bible are today at work preparing the world for the coming of Antichrist. Can Harry Potter be a part of this occult agenda?
