The Twilight Series

Seems everyone is talking about Twilight. To my astonishment, some of my church sisters are even applauding the books. Of course, I refuse to actually purchase the books. I am very careful about where I put my money, but curiosity got the better of me and so I borrowed a copy from one of my sisters.

Now, the books are tintillating. Obviously, they would be. They are constantly ranking on the bestseller lists everywhere. Still, I was disturbed to know that my sisters that I pray and fellowship with at church every Sunday were not disturbed by the contents of the books. At some point, we have to make a stand. Of course, the book was entertaining, but there was a ton in it that was contrary to Christian standards, like most books in that particular genre. I don't fault the world for reading what they find entertaining. However, I do wonder how most Christians can stand firm against certain things, but then watch it and enjoy it in movies, books and magazines. I'm just wondering and looking at myself at the same time.
