If you could have any Twilight vampire talent, what would it be?
I would probably choose Alice’s ability to see the future. It just seems so useful—to be able to see and evaluate a course of action before it occurs. I would like to be certain that my course of action will produce the results I’m looking for before I set out on it.
One of the most surprising parallels between the Twilight Saga and Christian life has to do with supernatural gifts like foresight. Did you know the Bible promises believers Spiritual Gifts? Gifts like Eleazar’s discernment, Sioban’s faith, and Carlisle’s healing? Much like the process of changing from human to vampire, we are changed from the inside out to something more resilient, more beautiful and more powerful than ever before. Read it for yourself in 1 Corinthians 12:7-11.
