What does the Bible say about Harry Potter?

Ever wondered what does the Bible say about Harry Potter? Or about the war in Iraq?

Now you can!

Take a look at this recent OpenBible project to create a new topical Bible. The basic idea is similar to that of Wikipedia. Any user can contribute a verse they think is relevant to the existing topic or start a new topic. Some standard of quality is maintained through a voting system, where the users are able to choose which verses they considered helpful.

I gave the system a try by searching for topic “Judging others”, which is missing from most topical Bibles. I was quite impressed with what I got – it practically coincided with the result of my own research, which took me more than one hour. I am really looking forward to see how this system will eventually evolve!

A word of warning, though. Some of the verses given are short and hence there is a danger of reading out of context (see one of my previous posts). So don’t be lazy to take out your own Bible, navigate to the verse and read a paragraph before and after. This is a very good discipline.
