Bella and Edward are obviously tempted with each other. However, they spend a lot of time alone, from Bella’s bedroom to being in the middle of the forest. Explain how being absolutely alone leaves too many tempting doors wide open. Most importantly, any Christians who date should study God’s word and pray together. This will strengthen the relationship and help build spiritual armor against any temptation. In Ephesians 6:10-11, it reads: “Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in His mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.”
The other problem with armour is that you can’t see a person’s face and you can barely hear them speak, which sort of takes the fun out of dating (but obviously not for Christians)…. I am scratching my head to figure out what exactly you’re supposed to do with a Christian on a date. Can’t go anywhere alone, can’t have sex, and presumably if the first two are out of bounds then you can’t kiss either.
Incidentally, second Twilight movie is better than the first, but the advertising for abstinence is a lot more blatant (including a clip of ‘Virgin Airlines’ flying Bella across the Atlantic, and an ending that is straight out of Brian Tamaki’s abstinence handbook….but I won’t ruin the amusement for you).
