Hi. I am a Christian and I am a writer and artist.
Over a year ago, I met a Christian penpal through this site who expressed an interest in the cartoons and comics I wanted to develop. I was trying to get some research done and I was asking for help to get my material developed, and this guy contacted me when he saw some of the questions I posted.
For over a year, we had lengthy discussions about toons, comics, video games and other forms of popular entertainment and other subjects and issues from a CHRISTIAN and BIBLICAL standpoint.
He told me I shouldn't be drawing and creating "furries" or any anthropomorphic characters, like people in the world do, for a number of reasons:
They are fabular, they promote paganism, secularism and the occult, they promote evolutionism, and dressing up in animal costumes promotes devil worship.
By "dressing up in animal costumes" he means wearing fursuits like people in the furry community do, or dressing up as those anthropomorphic (animal) characters you see at theme parks, etc., or as sports mascots, video game mascots, etc.
My penpal also likened anthropomorphic characters to familiar spirits. I am paraphrasing what he said, but I am not making any of this up.
What does dressing up as an animal have to do with animal worship?
I am curious and I don't get the correlation. I know the Word says we are supposed to worship the Creator and not the creations- this is referenced in Roman 1:25
Please help- thank you.
