You religious folks, christians and otherwise - can you honestly say that vampirism, and kin issues, does not drive you TO your faith, partly if not totally due to fear? fear of the unknown, of what some urges make one want to do?  

Yes. I can honestly say that vampirism and kin issues have not driven me to my faith, for fear or any other reason.

Persephone - excellent post and excellent points.

Seconded.

If she's just made her own personal choice and decided to shuffle off and stop calling herself a vamp, then fine - more power to her. I believe in freedom of conscience and religion too, so that's just fine by me.

However...

What I don't like is where this may be going. Her statement appears to indicate that she is looking at this "conversion" as some kind of "reformed vampire" or even *shivers* "ex-vampire"... and the involvement of this "pastor" of hers appears to indicate some kind of attempt to infiltrate and even "convert" other members of the VC...

Lol - no wonder the Romans viewed Christians as dangerous... maybe that's because they are. Blind faith combined with ignorance and weak will always are.

Nobody will be converting this one to no Jesus. She needs to watch the show Ancient Aliens on the History channel I think that my dads got me watching. It cleary denotes the bibles accuracy. It's hard to explain but God didn't create Adam and Eve. But you'll figure that out soon enough sister. More power to you

To all you religious folks, I can say but one thing ---

Take a good hard close look and read at what your source material has to say about life in general.

@ Nightshade - I don't have a need to prove my beliefs to anyone, so I'm not going to argue that point, suffice to say if I'm right it doesn't matter, if you're right it still doesn't matter, so why worry?

@ RK - I keep running into a lack of "like" buttons round here Wink

Shouldn't that be addressed to "all you Christian folks" (instead of "all you religious folks")?
