Well said. Bottom line, people, the key here is to keep things in
perspective. It is probably alright for Christians to play Dungeons and
Dragonsor other games provided they don't get carried away with it, and
don't let the game rule their life. If a person doesn't feel comfortable
playing that type of game there is no law says you have to, but at the
same time don't try and force others not to enjoy it either.

I agree with you for the most part. I am also a christian, and I have
played Dungeons and Dragons for a large part of my christian life

Games in and of themselves are not the problem, it is the persons
focus on those games that cause the trouble. This isnt a preaching
sermon, just a little information. The common christian is told that
JESUS is to be their main focus for every aspect of their life, so
when a christian gets involved in other things, there is this constant
reminder that material possessions and such have their place, but it
should never be before JESUS.
In my case, I had to stop playing dungeons and dragons because I would
blow large amounts of cash on it, and play it constantly to the point
it would consume my life. To a non christian that might seem fine to
have a favorite hobby, but for the christian who focuses on that
favorite hobby it becomes a kind of battle about what needs to take
Some cults and other religions require strict rules on what to eat,
touch, watch, celebrate and enjoy. The belief is that by sacrificing
things in their lives will make them holier in some fashion. All that
does is take away the object, but it doesn't take away the desire in
the heart of the person who wants those things.
I hope that examined the brain of the common christian, grin.
