A warning

I am currently almost through the book of Ezekiel again in my private bible reading. This time through the Holy Spirit tapped me on the shoulder about a certain passage.

Ezekiel 33:7-9

"Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. When I say to the wicked, 'O, wicked man, you will surely die,' and you do not speak out to dissuade him from his wicked ways, then the wicked man will die for his sin and I will hold you accountable for his blood. But if you do warn the wicked man to turn from his sin and he does not do so, he will dies for his sin, but you will have saved yourself.

Brothers and Sisters in Christ, I have a warning. I see a darkening trend in console/computer games. The subject matter is becoming more and more evil. I see titles like The Darkness, Diablo 3, and Dark Souls. Games like Mass Effect 3 are applauded for having alternative lifestyles in them. Mature themed games which are dubbed such because of foul language, crudity, gore and sex are in demand. There is even a game that lets you play an antichrist like character(Lucius, indie, 2012) Games like the Binding of Isaac are distorting biblical truth in heretical and downright satanic fashion.

Thus I call on you to be mindful of what you are engaging in and what your kids are playing.

Luke 17 1-3

Jesus said to the disciples: "Things that cause people to sin are bound to come, but woe to that person through whom they come. It would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a millstone around his neck than for him to cause one of these little ones to sin. So watch yourselves."

It may be "fun" but does it hinder someone else's growth in Christ? If so better to get rid of it.

The passage from Luke of course applies to game developers as well. We are held accountable for what we do in this life. I know I don't want to go before Jesus and have to say that my actions led to sin or worse. Rise above this darkening trend and you will be blessed.

Watch out for one another, Brothers and Sisters. May the peace of Christ guard your mind and the love of Christ dwell in your heart.  -- Freedom's Scribe

  1. So very true. I wish more would take heed, stand up and say 'No more'. Change will only occur if we hit where it hurts - the pocket book. In other words, support games that reflect light, not darkness.
