THE SOL O. MANN TOP 10
Topic: Harry Potter

How well do you discern the "salt and light" in pop culture?

Score one point for each correct answer.

"The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge; the ears of the wise seek it out."
-- Proverbs 18:15

1. Lord Voldemort, an evil wizard, tried to kill the infant Harry. What king gave orders to kill all boys in Bethlehem and vicinity who were two years old and under, in an attempt to kill Jesus?

2. Connie Neal writes in "What's a Christian to do with Harry Potter?": "Lily Potter jumped in front of Voldemort's curse to save Harry; Jesus jumped in front of death's curse to save us....When we think of how Voldemort's curse could not kill Harry, the lightning bolt scar on Harry's forehead can symbolize that God cast Satan down like lightning." In what Bible book does Jesus say: "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven."

3. Ecclesiastes 10:20 states that "a bird on the wing may carry your words, and a bird on the wing may report what you say." What birds are used by witches, wizards and Hogwarts students to carry their mail?

4. Proverbs 1:19 states: "Such is the end of all who go after ill-gotten gain; it takes away the lives of those who get it." What building has the warning engraved on its silver doors: "Enter, stranger, but take heed/ Of what awaits the sin of greed/ For those who take, but do not earn/ Must pay most dearly in their turn..."

5. To get to platform nine and three quarters at King's Cross Station, Hogwarts students walk straight at the barrier between platforms nine and ten without stopping. And just as the barrier is the way to the magical realm of Hogwarts, what's the way to the Father and His house? (John 14:1-7)

6. At Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Harry is accepted into Gryffindor House "where dwell the brave of heart". What animal is Gryffindor's symbol?

7. The Sorcerer's Stone produces the Elixir of Life, which makes the drinker immortal. In what Bible book does Jesus say, "Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life."

9. In "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire", name one of the carols the suits of armour sang whenever anyone passed them.

10.Who said in his July 14/00 commentary: "The Potter craze reflects the longing in our kids' souls for God." -- George Carey (Archbishop of Canterbury), Chuck Colson (Prison Fellowship) or Andy Rooney ("60 Minutes")?

Answers:
1. King Herod (Matthew 2:13-18)
2.
Luke (10:18) Neal continues: "Voldemort's power was broken when Mrs. Potter willingly sacrificed her life for Harry; Satan's power was broken when Jesus died on the cross to sacrifice his life for us....It's helpful to remember this connection to Jesus' sacrificial death and resurrection by making the association between Lily Potter's first name and the Easter lily." See also: Galatians 3:13, John 3:16, I John 4:9-10, Hebrews 2:14-15.
3.
owls. The most bird-brained member of the movie cast is Ook the Owl, star of British television, who plays Hedwig the Owl, Harry's personal messenger.
4
. Gringotts, the bank run by goblins for wizards. Gringotts is entered off Diagon Alley but located several miles beneath London.
5.
Jesus. "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6). See also: Revelation 3:20 and John 10:9.
6.
The lion. John writes in Revelation 5:5a: "Then one of the elders said to me, 'Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed.' "
7.
John (4:14)
8.
Paul, in Ephesians 6:11
9. "It was quite something to hear 'Oh Come, All Ye Faithful' sung by an empty helmet that only knew half the words."
10.
Chuck Colson http://www.gbgm-umc.org/prospect/colson.htm "BreakPoint with Chuck Colson" is a daily commentary on news and trends. http://www.breakpoint.org
