Vampires are all over the place lately. Twilight, True Blood, Vampire Diaries, and so many more series like these are followed obsessively. I saw the following image on yahoo, and it made me think of the questions asked by the band, Godsmack, in their song, "Vampires."
Here are the lyrics to the Godsmack song, "Vampires":
"Few creatures of the night have captured our imagination like vampires...
What explains our enduring fascination with vampires?
What is it about the vampire myth that explains our interest?
Is it the overtones of sexual lust, power, control...
Or is it a fascination with the immortality of the undead?
And what dark and hidden parts of our psyche are aroused and captivated by the legends of the undead."
The Christian Broadcasting Network has an article entitled "A Christian Response to Vampire Obsession" by Hannah Goodwyn. If you are interested in this topic, you might enjoy reading it.
And by the way, did you know that the vampire writer, Anne Rice, is now a Christian author. Check her out in the Christian Inspiration section of Barnes and Noble.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on the current vampire obsession.
