This sort of thinking makes Christianity look plain silly. It presents an image of Christians as close-minded simpletons, easily lead by fear. And make no mistake, Arms is out to spread fear - it's remarkably easy to control people who are afraid.
As a Christian I am insulted that the very serious subject of good vs. evil is trivialized by comparison to a harmless series of books. The only crime J.K. Rowling is guilty of is getting kids' noses away from the T.V. and into books. As for Pokemon, referring to a cartoon as the work of Satan is simply moronic.

Every day I become more and more shocked with the stupidity of the people in our society today. As a Christian, I try to lead a God-like life, as it says in the Bible, but it's kind of hard right now. This Phil Arms gives Christians everywhere a bad name. As Robert Fernandez said, every episode of Pokémon has a an important theme for children to learn: friendship, values, etc. Check out the first movie if you don't believe me; it deals with segregation and its own form of racism. As for Harry Potter: these books are FANTASY. Look them up on this website, they're under FANTASY. If, as an adult, you are so stupid as to think FANTASY is REAL-LIFE, you need to go back to kindergarten. I don't remember anyone bringing out this Christian controversy when Lord of the Rings came out. Oh no! Our children may think that Hobbits and Elves exist! AAAHHHH! Please. Anyone dissing this stuff obviously has no lives of their own, and needs to check their religious status. I'm not proud to be associated with close-minded [people] such as this.

The funniest book I ever read! The fact that there are at least hundreds of thousands of crackpots that think the same way is even funnier.

This book really shows Phil's intolerance of other cultures, as seen in the critique of Pokemon.

If he is truly concerned, he'd make a game and a series and/or books along with merchandise for children based on Christianity. (For those that have actually read the Bible, think about how truly creepy that would be.)

A Kid's Review on July 23, 2001
Format: Paperback
*comes in wearing a Charmander costume and a Harry Potter wizard hat* Sheesh, I'd rate this negative infinity stars if I could. The only thing I find wrong with Harry Potter is that it swears. *shudder* Anyways, I'm a HUGE fan of Pokemon and Harry Potter AND I'm a Christian. People, don't buy this book. It's a waist of time and money.

We came across this book at a used book sale, and after paging through it, decided to purchase it for under a dollar. After reading it thoroughly, it became clear why the previous owner didn't want it.

Phil Arms claims that the Japanese animated series Pokemon and the popular Harry Potter novels are demonic and are only leading children down the path of Satan. This is just ridiculous; how can a show and series of books that teach the values of teamwork, good sportsmanship, love, respect, and good versus bad really be "evil"? Pope John Paul II himself even gave his blessing to Pokemon, and if such a holy man found nothing wrong with it, why should a man like Phil Arms?

In addition to that, he manages to get many of his facts wrong. He spells many names of Pokemon incorrectly, and claims he got his information from popular Pokemon websites, but doesn't specify what ones! Obviously, unless he was on one of the official websites, there is an definite risk of getting wrong information. He also states that Digimon and Pokemon are created by the same people and companies, which is false, and that Digimon is aimed toward younger children, which is also false. I know many people who are older teenagers who consider Pokemon a little kid's show, but love Digimon.

It is unfair that he gives Harry Potter such a prominent place in the description and title of the book, since there is only one short chapter on the so-called "evils" of J.K. Rowling's wonderful books. It seems that he got this information off of the Internet, and from book reviews as well. I doubt that Phil Arms has read a Harry Potter book. In the process of spreading his message, he states that Christianity as the only "true" religion, and basically states that all non-Christians are going to hell.

What a bunch of lies! Everything in this book is not true! I am a Pokemon and Harry Potter fan and I am also a Christian! I beleive God, but I don't beleive this book! For example, they say that Mewtwo is evil because its psychic. That is so stupid! Even Mewtwo beleives in God! If you get the Birth of Mewtwo CD, the story states it that Mewtwo asked the scientist if it was created by God, but the scientist said no and Mewtwo was outraged. Also, if you have watched the uncut verson of Mewtwo's Orgin, it shows that Mewtwo is NOT evil, but is confused and misunderstood. And for the battles being violent, that is stupid, too! It states in the Pokemon Handbook that a Pokemon Battle is a sport, not a fight. Pokemon also teaches kids valuable lessons, like in Mewtwo Strikes Back, it teaches that fighting doesn't slove problems. And now for Harry Potter. These books actually help your reading skill devolpe. Also, it lets kids expand their imagination to a level that will be helpful for later in life. Magic isn't going agaist the bible if you ask me. Harry is always trying to stop you-know-who (Valdemort) from distroying the entire planet. So in that case, magic is saving the world. Now this is the part that the author must always be forgetting. . . THIS IS ALL FICTIONAL!!! Really, saying that fictional stories are evil is really dumb. This author should reaserch a bit BEFORE having an incorrect opinion about this. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY UNLESS YOU WANT IT TO LAHF AT THE LIES IN THIS INCORRECT-STATING BOOK!!!
