As a Christian and bible teacher I am pretty well known in many nations. I have done work in Israel, Canada, The United States, El Salvador, India and Ceylon. I served as a missionary in The Philippines. And I have experienced some of the most astounding सूपरनॅचुरल events, witnessed द्वारा hundreds of people all over the world.

A सवाल that has come up और than a few times is why I watch The Vampire Diaries so much. "How could you, as a servant of Christ watch that show?"

For a long time even I did not understand why I was so taken द्वारा the show. There is quite a bit of blood and gore. And yet week after week I found myself racing घर to watch it. Especially after the introduction of Klaus and his family. Wow! Finally this summer I found the answer. Actually I discovered that there were two reasons I really enjoy the show.

The first reason is The Vampire Diaries is a classic genre, no different than King Arthur, Troy या the story of King David. Every classic of this genre has three elements.

There must be a hero या heroine. There must be a villain या great challenge to overcome and there must be a princess या beautiful lady to save. Romance has always been essential to a great story.

The Vampire Diaries has all of these elements and much more. In some ways आप could say that there are two heroes; Stefan and Damon, depending on how आप view Damon. Klaus and Katherine would certainly be the classic evil villains and of course Elena is the beautiful maiden that we all want to rescue.

My सेकंड reason is I really identify with the characters. Stefan is what really attracted me to the show.

Stefan is this really cool guy, the classic hero who like David and Samson has this constant battle against his dark side. And in my own life I have learned how कड़वा and difficult that battle can be. And like so many हीरोस of the past Stefan is willing to sacrifice everything for his true प्यार the beautiful Elena Gilbert.

Damon is like this no nonsense, in your face guy who would be a great warrior in any time period. And yet he can be as romantic as any man could be.

And then आप have Bonnie who uses सूपरनॅचुरल power to help her friends. If we combine all of the above with fantastic story lines, excellent scenery and some really beautiful women like Caroline and Rose. Well what और can I say!

Should a Christian watch The Vampire Diaries? I expect it would depend on your point of view. As for me the Characters have दिया me a great deal of inspiration.

Now I just need to find the Elena या Caroline in my life!
