I know I said I was doing Unscripted today, but I woke up too late to exercise and shower this morning, and then I had a bad hair day, and things just happened and I’m not going to burden you with my face today. I’ll do it tomorrow. I promise. So instead of a vlog, today I’m listening to Lorde and answering the second set of tags from the blog chain happening at Fullness of Joy.
1. Taken from a Christian perspective, what are your thoughts and feelings on the fantasy genre in general? Do you hold to any convictions or guidelines on things like magic, sorcery, fantastical elements or allegory in fantasy books? This is an interesting topic for me, and I’ve discussed it before. To put it simply, I believe evil is evil and good is good, no matter what label you put on it. A lot of people I know don’t read things with ‘good’ witches or wizards in them, even if the ‘witches’ and ‘wizards’ are, in fact, behaving in a Biblical manner and I don’t agree with this, since those words are modern substitutes – the words weren’t even around when Jesus was alive. He was speaking in terms of necromancy and contacting the dead. It’s a big subject for me, but generally speaking, I don’t have a problem with magic.
