Mark Driscoll: 'Twilight' Is for Girls What Porn Is to Boys
Author and outspoken pastor Mark Driscoll says he wants to make it clear that movies such as "Twilight," which opened this weekend, are something Christians should not treat as harmless entertainment and, in fact, have inspired some real-life demonic trends.
Subtitled in his blog, "A Father's Fright of Twilight," Driscoll states, "Twilight is for teenage girls what porn is to teenage boys: sick, twisted, evil, dangerous, deceptive, and popular."
While millions of movie-goers attending the final installment of the teen vampire series are expected to bring in high numbers at the box office, he warns that many mothers have joined daughters in their obsession over the dark plot and characters....
Porn one of the greatest threats to Christianity: Christian apologist, Josh McDowell

âHow big of a deal is this for the body of Christ right now?â asks John Stonestreet.
âWell, the stats which I have documented,â explains Josh, âshow that upwards of fifty percent of pastors struggle with pornography. Sixty-two percent of men who attend evangelical churches regularly struggle with pornography, and upwards of sixty-five to sixty-eight percent of teenagers. This is probably the greatest threat to the cause of Christ in two thousand years of church history, because it so undermines your life, your walk with Christ and your beliefs. My fear is that many pastors are not addressing it because theyâre involved in it. Somehow, weâve got to get the leadership in the body of Christ addressing this.â
This from the same man who wrote, âRestrictive Christians go too far and name everything a universal sin, forbidding some cultural activities that the Bible does not, such as listening to certain music styles, getting tattoos, watching movies, smoking cigarettes, consuming alcohol, and body piercing.â

I agree; anyone who does not desire to lead a holy life is not in the body of Christ. If Christ died for my sin, then how can I be comfortable living in sin. This is the height of antinomianism.
Romans 8: But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.  Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.  For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.  For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
Romans 6: What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?  What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.
2 Cor. 5:15 And [that] he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.
