Quick! Get your lanterns and pitchforks….no, actually, get your Bible.
Is it just me or are we swamped with Vampires? New Age (occult), Vampires, and a whole host of “other-worldly” subjects are running rampant in our culture. What is really, really sad is that even “church-kids” are into it. “Twilight” is taking front seat to the “Real Light”, Jesus Christ. “Oh, it’s just harmless entertainment.” Keeeeep telling yourself that.
1 Timothy 4:1, Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

1 Peter 2:9, But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

“There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee … For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the Lord thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.” Deuteronomy 18:10-12, 14.
