Quote from: Jonathan WaltonAs such, I think I'll change my definition of "Christian games" to those that both deal specifically with Christianity and ultimately support or futher the exploration of a Christain faith. This does not mean they have to say "Christianity is right and good" but they at least should allow for "Christianity is something worthwhile to explore and wrestle with."
Quote from: ClayIf I wanted a game that specifically modeled what being a Christian meant to me, I would choose Sorcerer hands down. The premise of the game is "what would you do?" For me at least, aside from acceptance of the possibility of salvation of my soul, that pretty much sums up what it means to be a Christian. In the end my life will be judged, with salvation or damnation in the balance.
Quote from: crucielWould a Christian object to games that place christianity on an even could-be-truth slate with atheism or buddism?
Quote from: Clinton R. NixonCruciel,Most definitely. It's funny, because I couldn't really talk about my gaming growing up, with the very religious, very conservative, very fearful-of-the-devil parents.Now, I live in Seattle, and am a very liberal, very ecumenical, kinda-maybe-Christian, and I wouldn't tell a soul, much less a gamer. I normally avoid talking about RPG.net's forums, but you'll get your ass verbally stoned there if you mention you believe in a god. .
QuoteMatthew 6,5-6: And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
