And It Wasn’t Very Good

Twilight

It’s nice to see that my site is on the first page of Google search results for “list of biblical principles that twilight the movie is against.”

So, since you asked, here’s the list (it’s a short one):

  1. “God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.” (Gen. 1.31a)

In case that’s not clear enough, the principle here is that just as what God made was very good, we also, as bearers of the imago dei, should also strive to create what is very good. Twilight, in both its written and cinematic forms, is not “very good” and thus violates that foundational biblical principle.

I hope you, whoever you are, found that list helpful. And should you ever need more guidance on such issues, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Patterson looks like he’s speed walking to get away from the franchise.

I was talked into reading the books, by women at my church, all older than me. I finally succumbed to post-tween peer pressure and read the entire series. I want those hours back.

Now I am anticipating the next installment of the Game of Thrones novels. It has everything that Twilight didn’t, complex characters, wonderful setting, and most of all, complexity to the plot.
