Twilight Good or Evil?

Ok, I have been watching all of the hoopla on the Twilight movies.  I don’t think I have to share

with most about the new movie being out.  It’s all over TV, magazines and online.

I am not asking that everyone agrees with me on what I am about to share.  I hope you’ll at least read this with an open mind and be willing to pray about this.  At the end of the day you’ll have to do what is right for you personally and I think we can all agree with that.

I would like to begin with a verse I have been thinking about lately.

2 Corinthians 11:14, “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.”

Some times I think Satan appears so evil that many will not receive a film, TV program, music etc…  The Bible is very clear that Satan can also appear as an angel of light.

Some of you reading this today would never dream of watching the movie The Last Exorcism” that came out about a year ago.  A movie like that is perhaps so evil there is no way that you would consider watching it.  Perhaps “Paranormal Activity 3″ is a movie that is still to evil for you to watch.  But what about a vampire movie that has two good looking lead actors in it with a great romance theme to it?  Is Satan appearing more subtle, an angel of light so more would be willing to let down their guard?

Edward is part of a coven which is of course witchcraft.  A scared woman, who’s one of the housekeepers at their island retreat, calls Edward a “demon,” and Jacob remarks that Bella is carrying a demon. When the housekeeper places her hand on Bella’s stomach, she hisses, “Death!”  I love the conclusion that www.pluggedin.com offered in their review.  “The film wants us to ignore the bloodsucking nastiness of it all by masking it in selfless actions and sweet baby smiles. And it even asks Twihards to root for a supernaturally dark death so it can sink in its fangs and magically save the day. But if you’re looking, the truth is driven home by the impact on Bella’s withering body, her internally snapping bones and eventually stone-cold heart. This is a vampire movie after all.”

So when I read stories of teens that have been vampires since 6th grade it breaks my heart. “I became a vampire, I think.  So I was in 6th grade and I went home.  I went to bed and I heard voices calling my name…”  Another post,  “So I don’t like this think I am dealing with.  It’s hard to keep cool at night when apart of me just goes out in the night.  I am feeling like dead.  I cray and eat and drink blood…”

I realize Twilight is romantic but vampires are very real.  I know vampires like in the movies do not exist, however, people who drink blood are real.  There are web sites on how to enter a vampire community without looking like a fool.  When you play with fire you eventually get burned.  Can you be entertained with witches, demons and vampires and not have it impact your life?  I think the answer is no.  I have talked with to many people who have shared with me the impact some of these movies have had on their lives.  Its no wonder we find the following verses in the Bible.

Leviticus 19:31 Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.

Isaiah 8:19 And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?

I am not forcing anyone to not watch this movie.  At the end of the day you might think I am over reacting to some of these movies and that is ok?  The only thing I ask is that you at least read this with an open mind and pray about it.

I appreciate you sharing this today.  Please feel free to leave a comment for this blog, it’s appreciated.  Check out my latest book, “The Day Satan Called” available everywhere.

God bless,

Bill Scott

  • Bill,

    I am thankful that you have shared your view point on this series. I am in total agreement with you and wish that Christians would grasp the seriousness of these types of movies. It is clear that Satan is using these “romantic” movies to desensitize our culture. I pray that folks wake up. Blessings on you and Janet.
