QotW: Where Should Christians Draw The Line On Mythical Figures/Gods?

I noticed my daughter reading a book that contains mythical figures and Greek and Egyptian gods. This got me thinking again about where Christians should draw the line concerning this type of content. I know that my daughter isn’t worshiping the gods and mythical figures in her book. However, can the pantheon or hierarchy between between the gods, or even the personalities of the gods, negatively affect her understanding of the one true God? Can this help to confuse people, or muddy their understanding of Christianity and who God really is? Does it depend more upon the individual and whether or not they can properly separate fiction from reality? These are the thoughts floating around in my head, and I think they are worth considering further.

“Pay attention to all that I have said to you, and make no mention of the names of other gods, nor let it be heard on your lips.” – Exodus 23:13
