"Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires." (2 Peter 1:4 NIVUK)  It is God, not Gollum, who offers what is truly "precious." The Lord of the Rings is as nothing when compared with the promises we have been given by the LORD of Redemption, Jesus Christ!
