I find this article shocking to be at this website - what's acceptable next - pornography as a form of God's love of the flesh? That anyone can find this topic of vampires inspirational is absurd. To be in the midst of complete horror, blood sucking vampires, killing... and ignore this and see God's love? This is a freaking movie you moron! You need to stop watching this drivel because you obviously can't separate it from reality. It has no basis in reality and certainly not in spirituality. And then to compare that to the love you have with God! I guess you live in a fairy tale world. My God doesn't sanction the violent killing that you accept. Perhaps you are on a Jihad?

I am just trying to figure out, what part of this young woman wants to give up/destroy her immortal soul don't people understand? If someone could explain that to me, perhaps I could understand the movies and the books. I just know that my "job" as a wife is to help my husband get to heaven and his "job" as husband is to help me get to heaven. I love my husband and look forward to the day my soul will look at the face of God. If you have no immortal soul, how can you hope to ever see the face of God?

Hi! It is very important that when individuals mention what they think God would and wouldn't like, they need to look where God speaks: That is through His Word. In His Word it states that "faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God", meaning that in order for us to have our minds, will, and emotions aligned with God's we need to tap into His heartbeat, which is His Word. Therefore, we CAN know what God thinks about things--we go to His Word to figure it out. We as Christians are also called to "cast down thoughts and imaginations, and anything that sets itself up against the knowledge of God", which is found in His Word. Based upon the Word, you can make your decision about whether or not vampires are pleasing to God. I already know the answer, but I desire that you seek it for yourself. His Word says that when you seek Him with your whole heart, you will find Him. Read His Word and it will tell you the answer. But please, DO NOT listen to people when they say God doesn't want to judge everything that we do. That is a lie of the enemy told since the Garden when he deceived Eve. Their judgment was being kicked out of the Garden. He loves you and desires what is best for you. Seek His heart for His desires and His will.

I think your comparison of your love for God and Twilight was beautiful and very interesting. *Some* Christians use their faith to distinguish what they think God would want people to think or like, like the movie Twilight is bad and God would not want people to watch it because it portrays vampires and immorality. You can gain values from the bible, but no one knows what God would think about Twilight, and frankly I do not think he would want people to judge other people for liking it. What I liked about your story is that you connected your love for God and the movie. I am just so glad that there are people who can find good things in everything.

It's mostly about sensuality not Love...too many baby Christians not making the connection between your heart and your head, to make that connection would be a spiritual connection which is called Baptism by the Holy Spirit ..too bad most don't practice that now a days , then you could make better rational decisions whether it's love or a passing fantasy...
