Author: Jack Hager

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."

  1. >I'll be completely honest. I think this video is ridiculous. There's a very big difference between fiction and demonic. While for everything good, there is an opposite, I do not believe that means that anything that is not Christian is automatically "demonic". However. I do agree that there are some things that shouldn't be read by preteen and teenage girls. I guarantee my Wife and I will be censoring our daughters entertainment. That's for sure.

  2. >I have to disagree with the previous comment. Sort of. There is, in literature, two types of Fantasy fiction. High Fantasy involves a totally unheard of world full of unfamiliar races and traditions. These stories, descending from the fairy stories of old and most popularly known in the present through Lord of the Rings and Chronicles of Narnia, maintain the purpose of their tradition which is to teach morals and truth through a different vein (think of parables and fables). These stories are healthy and useful to us.Then, regrettably, the popularity of the occult and romance novels have combined to create Lesser Fantasy, an amalgam of innuendo, deviancy, sorcery, cult ideals, and so forth. These novels are tantalizing and fascinating to the unwary reader, and teach nothing of value and use but celebrate the demonic.Twilight is the current pinnacle of this garbage. Anything that doesn't teach the truths of the Bible, whether directly or indirectly, is demonic. All ideas have only one of two different sources: Heaven or Hell. I love my fantasy, but it better well be High Fantasy.

  3. >Funny to me how Mark D can be considered so "out there" by some borderline (or over the line) legalists, yet my buddy CJ thinks his comments are "ridiculous." Mark's distinctions are helpful; though I doubt CJ will "buy in." But I am confident that CJ will try to guard his daughters heart and eyes…and, heck, might change his view as this "stuff" gets more in your face. Re the twilight stuff, I'm probably more concerned that the author is a supposedly devote Mormon…
