Product Description
A few summers ago, when the Twilight phenomenon was at its height, I created a Bible study to teach to high-school aged students using some of the concepts in Twilight to help students see how they can "partner" with the Holy Spirit to fight sin in their lives.

An important life-long skill is to be able to make connections between life and what is read, seen, and heard. In reading, these connections are called "text to self" and "text to text." In Bible Study, it's not just the reading of God's Word that's important; it's the application of the Spiritual truths in one's life that is essential. Through helping students make Spiritual connections with what they read, see, and hear, they can learn how to make those same connections between the Word and their lives.

In Twilight, Edward struggles with his internal desire to kill. He is able to overcome that fleshly desire because of his love for Bella, his "family," and his ability to control his fleshly desires through his strong willpower. In the same way, we have an innate desire to sin. We can fight that desire through the willpower that God gave us to not sin when we became his children. God commands us to be holy and grants us the power to do so, but we have to take responsibility to use it.

This is an instruction guide, student handout, rationale geared toward adults, and PowerPoint presentation that is pretty much ready to teach! The only thing it does not include are the short video clips from Twilight (obviously due to copyright issues!), but there are references to the sections on the DVD.

I am open for feedback and ideas for this! I know it is a somewhat controversial idea, using a secular movie to try to illustrate Biblical truths.
