Dr. Derek P. Blake replied to Robert Gerald Barnett's discussion 'Is it bad for a Christian to star an anti-hero in their novel?' in the group Christian authors
"I certainly think we need to be wise about what we write, I have certainly written several pieces, both books and articles that were not overtly Christian.  In the UK we have a tradition called 'Pantomime', which is a strange blend of…"

"Good answer. I need to get back into writing it. Keep making the mistake of reading it and editing it instead of adding to it. Need to just jump to the end and keep going. "

"http://www.answersingenesis.org/articles/2013/04/26/does-bible-tell-christians-to-judge-not Today's definition of judging is far too sensitive. I'm judging if I'm not in agreement with you over the color of your shirt. I'm…"

"It doesn't necessarily have to present the Gospel, but if it engages people in a dialogue of good vs. evil, of right and wrong, and of Christ ultimately winning, then it opens a way to present the Gospel."

"I'm not sure it's a way to present the Gospel. But neither is Ted Dekker's "Obsessed". It just had a very evil bad guy that seems to excel in everything while the good guys keep losing, until in the end the bad guy loses."

"Bridget's right on the money there.  The bottom line is this:  if it's a stumbling block to you or those around you, it's a sin.  If not, and it opens up ways to present the Gospel, then you're…"

"The problem with writing dark and violent... is that the mindset consumes you.  I've struggled writing about the demonic.  CS Lewis said he struggled with writing Screwtape Letters for the same reason. I love fantasy and I'd love…"

Is it bad for a Christian to star an anti-hero in their novel?

Is it bad for a Christian to write a nonChristian book?From my understanding, there are books like Frank Peretti's novels where it's a suspense thriller with clear Christianity in it. There are books like Ted Dekker's where some of the have open Christianity in them, some of them are latent but obvious enough. And some where the bad guy losing is the message.I'm writing a fantasy novel that's dark and violent. It's a story I've had in my head for years and have been slowly working on. I've…See More

Robert Gerald Barnett replied to Tom Ragsdale's discussion 'Who or what exactly was the serpent in the Garden of Eden?'
"I can't think of nor find any scriptural or logical evidence that would disprove your position. The only thing I might point out is that some of it is based on assumption or theory and not fact. However, the facts we do have do not appear to…"

""Adam wrote Genesis 3 over 235 years after God cursed the Tempter." Forgive me if I missed it, but where does the Bible say/imply this? It's commonly accepted that Moses wrote the first five books. If Satan was not yet known as an…"

"If the Bible tells of satan's end, and doesn't tell of lucifer's end, then what are we to make of it?"

Robert Gerald Barnett replied to Tom Ragsdale's discussion 'Who or what exactly was the serpent in the Garden of Eden?'
"Isn't a seraph (spelling?) a type of angel? Satan and Lucifer being two different beings...at a minimum I've been surprised to see that them being the same is nothing more than an assumption. This is definitely something I'll…"

Robert Gerald Barnett replied to Tom Ragsdale's discussion 'Who or what exactly was the serpent in the Garden of Eden?'
"That's pretty clear. I've never heard of the idea that Satan was a seraph before. I've been trying to research that, although thus far everything I find is catholic. Was it a deduction that fits the evidence…"

Robert Gerald Barnett replied to Tom Ragsdale's discussion 'Who or what exactly was the serpent in the Garden of Eden?'
""IS" is "IS" and that's fine. Satan is the old serpant. While this qualifies as a possible reference to the serpant in the Garden, it does NOT prove that Satan was the serpant in the garden. Until I see biblical proof of…"

"Much of your argument relies on language translation. I guess I'm out of the game here since I'm not literate in Hebrew.  "

I've followed and supported AiG for years, and am raising my three children as best as I can do defend their beliefs. Although at ages 1, 2 and 5, at this point I'm trying to communicate belief.
