Twilight filth

I’m sure many parents will come under pressure from their teenage children (and even younger – gulp!) to see the new Twilight film.  I’ve not seen the latest or any of the proceeding ones, but I’d wholly endorse Mark Driscoll’s comments here and his conclusion:

As a pastor and a father, I am particularly concerned for Christian parents who are naively allowing this filth into their children’s lives, buying these books and driving kids to see these movies. To such parents, “It is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God” – Phil 1:9-11.

We’re not to mess around with filth, we’re to be increasingly approving of what is excellent so that we might be pure and blameless for the day of Christ.
