Building upon what Jeremy's stated, I reference Psalm 16:11, "You have made known to me the path of life; You will fill me with joy in Your presence, with eternal pleasures at Your right hand."Psalm 23:5..."You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows."I would rather have my mind constantly set on the Lord, than be in a fantasy world. Here, I reference Colossians 3:1-2..."Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things."The other thing that troubles me about sci-fi and fantasy is the content matter than most seem to share. Magic and spell-casting, witchcraft and sorcery are things that are detestable in God's sight. I do know that not all sci-fi and fantasy contain these elements, but quite a lot does. (I know because I took great interest in these things B.C.) There are many Biblical references to this that can be found throughout the Bible, from Isaiah to Acts and so forth. I'll list them if asked, but I think they're relatively easy to find on one's own.Again, hope I helped. :-)

so basically, ya'll all find nothing wrong with it if it has a Biblical Message? cool. that's what i needed to hear. thanks ya'll
No, we did find a lot wrong with it. Reread those verses and what we've put forth on it. Why live in a fantasy world when the life we have in Christ is amazingly pleasing and fulfilling?
If I'm not mistaken, I think VampireBite is speaking more along the lines of the popular genres of fantasy and science fiction.
As a young Christian one has to get the mind as well as the heart off of anything not belonging to Christ to be able to grow in Christ.A maturing Christian is not keen on leaving his position in Christ for anything that looks like gold.Lars
