With Jesus in the room? I'd fear nothing.
The ulcer twins, he he he.
Well that's fine, I haven't signed up to anything yet.
No, I was just playing the games over on my mobile.
Thought maybe they could be unhealthy for your mind.
Doug said: rp, We consider this about those things. Would we be ashamed if Christ appeared at what ever we are doing. This is the way a "born again believer" walks in this age. Not everyone who says they are a Christian are not always what they say they are.

Doug said: Hi rpguy, We don't sign up. we are called. We are called by the word of God. You either are drawn to Christ by the word of God or the word of God has no light upon your soul and no influence. Those who are called by the WORD repent, then God regenerates that soul with the Spirit of Christ. To the unbeliever it is of no value, but to the believer, it is a life changing rebirth of a new man.
I love Jesus in my own way.
IMHO, I would steer clear of such video games. I spent hours and hours playing COD a few years back. In fact, maybe even all video games (difficult when you're growing up I know). How do they benefit your walk with God? They don't and walking around with a video game character shooting people/monsters is hardly an activity that allows you to grow in the knowledge of God.
Be careful, the devil will love to keep you entertained with other things as opposed to living for God. not saying it's easy to just drop the video games and move on, but I would suggest that is the path to take brother.
1 John 2:15
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
This sounds like wise words to me.
The biggest bad about video games is the distraction. I'm pretty sure that scripture says that we become what we see.
We've talked before about the passage that says, if we even look upon a woman in lust, that we are guilty of adultry. This is possible because...the original thought is not sin, but what we do with the thought is what makes it become the sin within us. If you cast it down, (put it out of your mind) then it is not sin. If you entertain the thought by allowing it to swirl around your mind then at some point, it goes WHOOSH, down into your heart and becomes a part of you. Then it is sin.
If we apply that principle to video games, then they would become a part of us too, part of who we are...So does playing video games make us into murderers? Perhaps so. If we look upon a woman with lust in our heart (How is that done?) That's done with the imagination...forming pictures in our minds eye. We may like to think that imagination is not real, But Jesus sees it as reality. That's the important thing.
So wwjd? Would Jesus play Call of Duty with you?
Hi there rpguy
Actually, I'm thinking of the scripture, 'I will walk within my house in the integrety of my heart and will set before my eyes no evil thing.'
Sounds like it fits the description to me.
Maybe we women think differently about all this since we're the ones that get to raise the kids.
1. Everything one is exposed to will have an affect and an effect on his life.
2. If a kid can't do it, why should an adult be able to?
3. Children have changed a great deal in the past one or two generations because of these games. Grand Theft Auto has caused persons to knock people over in real life. They just walk up to them and hit them hard on the head. This is also happening in Europe.
4. Would you play this game if Jesus were around? I doubt it.
5. Some things are more tolerable than others. These games are not tolerable because they change people. They are evil and glorify satan.
6. I think Jesus spoke to this stuff in Mathew 5:29...
Something about plucking out your right eye if it makes you stumble.
I'm sorry, I feel very strongly about these games. The world was a better place when they didn't exist. Fortunes are made by ruining our children. I wish they had never been invented.
BTW, maybe if all things are permissible but not all are profitable
1 Corinthians 20:23...
Maybe I could indulge in some adultery??
Yeah. That's the ticket.
I think Nintendo puts out more mild-mannered games than xbox or playstation. But it's still probably a spiritually fruitless thing to do.
