Discussion Question KSNM102409 by Doc B .
Nesse and Carlisle denied admission to heaven? As Edward believes! Or Not ?
Introduction: In the novel "New Moon" Bella Swan discusses Edward's beliefs with Carlisle as he tends her injured arm. Bella learns that Edward is convinced that vampiric conversion prevents anyone from ever being allowed to participate in an "after life." (be admitted to heaven) This question is one which is repeatedly raised through out the Saga.
As an act of love Edward lies to Bella and tells her that he is leaving. "My kind is easily distracted," He says Bella, desperate to: "find some way out of this nightmare," tells him,"This is about my soul isn't it. Well you can have it. I don't want it without you!"
Question: Do you agree with Edward that, being vampires prevents Carlisle and Nesse from ever going to heaven ? (And why do you feel that way?)
As always we sincerely look forward to learning your opinion, to help us both better understand and enjoy the "Twilight Saga"
ps As you know we: "disagree often, criticise virtually never." And we positively never criticise a member"s religious beliefs.
