Couple of days ago I was asking about the safety of vampires in New orleans, if the govt doing something or not. But all of a sudden a gora guy seriously got offended, for God knows what reason I mean, come on ! nobody was threatening to kill your stupid dog or something
Anyways, What Christians think of Vampires ? Is drinking blood halal (allowed) in christianity ? Can vampires go to heaven or not, if they believe and Jesus christ and all christian beliefs ?
There seems to be close relationship as they show in movies that vampires get frightened by "cross" and they can only be killed by this cross or something similar.

forget vampires, many Christians drink blood on Sunday
1. Conversion of one substance into another.
2. In many Christian churches, the doctrine holding that the bread and wine of the Eucharist are transformed into the body and blood of Jesus, although their appearances remain the same.

Vampire lore while having been around from the hellenic period, got it's christian flavor during the Rule of Vlad Tepes of Wallachia or Vlad the impaler, son of Vlad Dracul. Vlad Tepes was the thorn in the side of Sultan Mehmed who saw the horrors that Vlad Tepes unleashed on the Ottoman outposts in occupied lands of the balkans. Vlad the impaler was not only incredibly cruel to the ottoman forces, he once had an ottoman emmisary's helmet nailed to his head because he refused to prostrate and take it off infront of him.
WHile he was reviled by his own people and the ottomans for the atrocities committed healso had a legion of fans who saw him as a liberator against the ottoman machine. Legend has it that he was killed by the Janissaries, the private militia of the Sultan, and beheaded. His body was buried in Lake Snagov monstary in Romania or Svet Gorgi monstary in Bulgaria...and his head still waiting to be united and thus he is the undead. Since the monks of the era were the sole proprietors of knowledge for the masses, the links to christianity obviously developed.
Now go and close this thread...your lesson is over.Now repeat after me...."Jeter is the prophet and Rivera is the savior"

PD - Backward Desi's don't know about Vampires, Its a European,Christian thing
I appreciate your enthusiasm, but no use.
Gupguppy- I drink blood too sometime, but that does not make me thirsty for more. Vampires are Undead, and live forever, untill exterminated by some complex method. Like duracell.

it is stupid point Code red. There is no direct correlation between christianity and vampires other than fending of evil with crucifixes as per Bram Stoker. Now you can continue with your circle jerk. shabbashNow repeat after me...."Jeter is the prophet and Rivera is the savior"

I respect your view
But there is a whole wide world out site your soap opera
Prince Dracula was a real person, an historical figure of Eastern Europe with a horrible habit of impaling friends, foes and his own countrymen. He was bitterly opposed to the Ottoman Empire, which eventually caused his death.Bazinggaaaa ....

In the olden days over here in England the Christian clergy propagated the myth of vampires to hold onto their congregations, they would scare people with becoming vampires after death if they left the Church…
I think how it must have started was thieves and bandits must have used tombs and morgues for hideout places and only come out at night so people started mistaking them for vampires, also corpses would sometimes be stolen and people explained it by saying the person became a vampire and flew off… English people in the olden days actually use to go to check the graves of their loved ones to make sure they hadn’t turned into a vampire.

New Orleans is the city, where vampire lived happily, the citizen loved them and they were the tourists attraction, along with the above ground cemeteries We have to rebuild it and make it alive and festive like it was for decades
People in other parts of the world should also learn from the citizens of New Orleans in this regard.Bazinggaaaa ....
