Well,to most,a 26 yr old GUY Twilight fan is strange.But I think my interest in Twilight is unique.I feel like it helped put my life back on track and,because of that,I will always be a fan.Also,I have been fascinated with vampires since I was very young.But,Because I am a Christian,I felt that,by indulging in that fascination,I was betraying my faith.Then,Twilight came along--A story where the vampires have respect for human life,and because of that,they don't drive human blood.And they also have faith in God(Atleast Carlisle does).In new moon,Carlisle said "By all accounts,we're damned regardless.But I hope,maybe foolishly,we get some measure of credit for trying.When I read this statement,I thought "Wow! finally someone created the kind of vampire we can respect". A vampire with dignity and integrity.That's when I knew it was spiritually safe for me to be interested in it.
well,I wont talk alot about it,but I did something that I will regret for the rest of my life.Something that,even though I knew God had forgiven me for,I had a hard time forgiving myself.That's why I wrote "Sin for Salvation".And I discovered Twilight while I was going through all this.The more I read it,the easier it was for me to get my mind off of what I was going through.So as funny as it sounds,I strongly believe God sent it to me as a took to get me through that situation.That's why I am such a big fan
Harry Potter is another thing that I think influences kids in a very negative way(just like the "television violence" in that video--even though it seems innocent,it teaches kids that witchcraft is harmless and cool--But like I say in my blog discussion,Twilight is different.It sets morals and guidelines that no other vampire story has ever bothered to do before
isnt that video good?I mean people can't deny the truth behind it.When you see something like that,it makes you realize how much we really need God in this world,And the kind of effect our praise can have--It can do alot of damage to the gates of hell:-)
