Combining into

Because it has become insanely difficult to manage a bulletin board these days, the managers of Rapture Ready and Rapture Forums have decided to join our boards together under a software program that is easier to manage. Because RF has their database operating well under an Enforo license, we decided to make Rapture Forums the focal point of a consolidation. Since Chris, the owner of RF, has long experience in running a forum, he can better manage the problems that come with this technology.

  • "Twilight" the story/movie

    Is there a connection? I can't help but notice all the vampire themes lately in the media. Two movies, "Let the Right One In" and "Twilight" are in the movie reviews this week and both have vampire themes. My sister has teen age girls, and she said the hottest books right now among her age group are also vampire themed.

    Why is that? Is there some new age connection? Or is it just about introducing more blood and violence to desensitize people? Or is there some sort of end times connection just because it is anti-biblical?

    What do you think?
    is good
    is evil

    Stories about vampires have been around since before Stoker's story, Ann Rice, etc . . . inspired by pure evil that is in the world - there is nothing new under the sun. All of it is from the very pit of hell.
    The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

      It is not the subject matter that is a problem. It is the preponderance of it in the media that is a sign of the times. That and the new agers belief that is catching on with far too many of the deluded masses.

        I moved the thread here, as their is a cult of vampirism that is alive and well today.
        Someone once wrote, "The vampire cult is the last and most damnable step in the exploration of Satanism".

        Figured you might get more input here than the prophecy forum.

          The Old Testament tells us the life is in the blood - Lev 17:11a: For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I feel this has been perverted in the legend of the vampire - that blood of creatures on earth - that are under the curse of sin - can give eternal life.

          If you read the rest of the verse in Leviticus 17:11 it says: and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one's life.

          The ultimate Atonement for one's life is the Blood of Jesus - Vampirism is a perversion of what Jesus did for us on the Cross!!!

              There is nothing wrong with enjoying speculative fiction as long as you know it is fiction and treat it as such. So what I am trying to say is that it is not the story that is wrong so much as it is the person who is unable to discern that it is fiction.

              The discovery channel recently ran a program on the "Vrill". It was a life force described in a science fiction novel that developed a cult following and became one of the major influences in the belief system of Adolph Hitler. So you see what started out as a simple work of fiction was, at least in part, responsible for the worst assault on humanity by evil forces in modern history, ie; the holocaust.

              In it's day the "Vrill" had as much of a cult following as L. Ron Hubbard's "Dianetics" that was the start of the Scientology movement of today. The ideas put forth in Dianetics started out as parts of Hubbard's science fiction works and became the foundation of the false religeon of Scientology when L. Ron Hubbard started believing his own twisted public relations and turned it into a theology for fools to follow.

              Make no mistake, there are way too many fools in the world and they will follow anything they are taught with enough conviction and fervor. It doesn't even have to have self consistancy. Satan is capable of clouding the vision of people who don't seek the truth of the bible and that is who the real enemy is.

                If my goal was to undermine Christianity, incite rebellion against parents, eradicate Biblical values, and spread moral chaos, I would urge teens to read the Twilight series. I would prompt them to immerse their minds and emotions in the dark, emotional whirlpool of sensual occultism. And I wouldn't warn them of the consequences.

                Of course, my real goal is the opposite: to expose this assault on Biblical faith and to equip potential readers with information that enables them to resist the temptation to join the collective journey into the mind-changing realm of the occult. The following points show the raging spiritual war that's sure to intensify in the years ahead. Click here to read this entire article:

                    Yes, garbage in, garbage out. What don't people understand about that?

                      And of course, my 24y/o dd, who loves vampires, came home the other night to proudly tell me she just saw that movie What can I do? She loves the base and vile things of this life. I wish I knew what to do. Perhaps I will fast and pray today...

                        So I am getting the sense that its primarily rebellion in a general sense against God and His teaching.....and that it has an undercurrent of blood giving us power and strength as opposed to looking to the blood of Christ.

                        Did I interpret the posts correctly in that little summary?

                            I think as long as teens are mature enough to realize the story is a work of fiction (and respond to it as such) it is alright for them to see it. My son is a literature major and certainly keeps his entertainment seperate from how he lives his life.

                            We may not be OF this world but we live ON it and I don't think Jesus wanted us to isolate ourselves from the realities of our day. An open mind is not a bad thing as long as a relationship with God is ALREADY present.

                              How OPEN should we be? What do you mean when you say open? Is there a Scripture reference telling Christians that they are to have an open mind to the things of the world?

                              Phillipans 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

                              Romans 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

                              As His Bride said so eloquently, garbage in, garbage out. Truly
