Twilight: A Poor Story, But a Good Question

I do not know much about the Twilight books and films, but this series has become popular enough that hearing references to it in daily conversation and seeing posters publicizing it are practically unavoidable occurrences. The subject matter is of great concern to Christians, and I have heard a great deal of well-deserved, Scripturally-based criticism of it. Some Christian writers have done a wonderful job of considering this story in the light of Scripture; among others, I would recommend the review by Eric S. Mueller, especially to parents who may be considering allowing their teenage daughters to read the books or watch the movies. However, my purpose is not to criticize the story, but to highlight one of its main premises.
