Perspective on the News

Actor Corey Haim died recently at just 38 from an accidental drug overdose.   Haim left behind his mother, a couple thousand dollars and what royalties remained from his child-acting career. 

Haim became a teen idol playing the heroic ‘vampire slayer’ Sam in the hit movie “Lost Boys.” 

What a shame, that poor, lost boy.

Girls grow up dreaming of their knight in shining armor, the hero that will whisk them away but the new hero isn't a 'knight' he is a nightwalker.

Twilight was the biggest selling book of 2008 and stole the hearts of young girls everywhere. Since its release, vampire novels have been flying off the printing press. Check out any chain bookstore and you will find vampire aisles.  When I pointed this out to my daughter, she pointed to the word fiction and turned away.  I counted it a blessing.

Working with teens it is hard to be objective; after all, the “prince of the power of the air” is a driving force in their culture.  Vampire stories make my skin crawl. Still, I mustered up enough courage to read “Twilight.”

I was surprised that the book series has done this well – the series has been translated into more than thirty languages! The storyline seems so depressing, boring, and repetitive. I tried watching the first two movies but fell asleep. Nevertheless, I persevered and eventually made it all the way through.

The premise of the story is this: Bella (the heroine) is a bored, depressed teen who moves to a new town where she meets Edward.  He is sooo“gorgeous” (in a ghastly sort of way) but she thinks he hates her. She can tell by the way he scowls and runs away every time he sees her.

Yet he draws her like a moth to a flame.

He is oddly attracted to her blood, but he became a ‘good' vampire after suffering an attack of morality that caused him to give up killing people. He resists his thirst for human blood, preying on deer to keep it at bay.

He had only fallen 'off the wagon’ a couple of times and, according to the book, regrets eating those people, really he does.   Bella wants to understand (she mentions it several times).  His ‘affliction’ (for so it is portrayed) just makes her love him even more.   

Just look at the sacrifice he is making!  He hasn't killed her . . . so it must be love!

And on the story goes. . .  in a seemingly endless circle. As the t-shirt says; “Marry a vampire, he’ll love you forever.”  Oddly, fascination with vampires and the undead are the latest craze among young women.

Media has the power to mold these young imaginations with delusional thinking that there IS such thing as vampires and that some of them can be good while remaining immortal apart from God.

The unexplained needs explanation. How can they know, unless someone tells them?  TV is becoming reality -- and the Bible is an old book.  

Racing with stimuli, young minds have trouble distinguishing fact and fiction. Give them the facts. The battle is on for the next generation.

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 1 Peter 5:8

Uneducated, uninformed and unprepared kids could be a tasty little morsel.  What stands between them is you.  Or nothing at all.
