Twilight The Movie

The newest movie and book craze right now is "Twilight" a movie (and book series) aimed at teens about a love story between a clumsy teenage girl and a vampire.

Yep blood sucking vampire meets nerdy girl...they fall in love.. however there is no sex in this movie and thus parents are giving the thumbs up for their children to watch this movie and read the series of books.

Now I have at my disposal 4 sites that I want you all to look at.

We as parents need to teach our children about healthy relationships NOW.
1. The bad boy?? Hang it up.. you can NOT change someone. If they show traits now that are disturbing.. just you wait.. it can only get worse.
2. Stalking is not a trait I would want in a future boyfriend or girlfriend for my children.
3. Although there is no sex in the movie..many times the scene is set. Never put yourself in a situation that is unable to be controlled. Flee from temptation the Bible says.. not.. sit and stay awhile.

Now I tell my kids.. if it is not of God, (movie, music etc) who does it glorify. I find it hard to believe that someone would think a movie of a vampire would be of God.

I want to encourage all of the parents in a big way.. using myself. I loved horror writings as youth.. and yes.. the so called "innocent" fiction will draw your kids deeper into the temptations of the occult. No self professing witch woke up one day saying, "I'm a witch."

Parents study this one first.. do your own research.. see for yourself...

As my mom used to say, "Garbage in, Garbage out."
