The Three Wise Women

You do know what would have happened if it had been three wise WOMEN instead of men, don’t you? They would have asked for directions, arrived on time, helped deliver the baby, cleaned the stable, made a casserole, and brought disposable diapers as gifts!

I loved for King and Country song titled “Joy” and started listening to some of their other music. This is a great upbeat version of “The Little Drummer Boy”….enjoy.

Christian Gamers – Part 2

Grace and peace to you from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Thessalonians 2 (NIV)

Last week I blogged about the Christian gamer but had written so much about the Christian gaming community. My apologies this week I will address the Christian gamer.

Most Christian gamers gravitates towards Christian guilds/clans because of the much too often ridicule and/or persecution from the secular gaming groups. There is great comfort when a Christian joins a Christian gaming community where like-minded Christian gamers gather together to game in safety and without fear of ridicule or persecution. There are some Christian gamers that join secular groups without a lot of persecution this is because the makeup of the secular group is geared towards respect. Christian gamer’s faith always grows within the Christian guild as inevitable fellowship arises allowing for the growth in faith. The Christian gamer will stop and pray for their fellow Christians that have faced difficult events in their lives. The Christian gamer can sometimes forgive more easily than others.  We often have to forgive other players that have sinned against us and move on with our gaming…or there is the ignore list and then the forgiveness.

Most Christian gamers do not have problems with what is real and what is a game. One time I was playing Call of Duty on a multiplayer level and got asked about my clan tag which is -JF- which is a clan tag for Jesus Freaks after the DC Talk song and being a Christian clan. Surprisingly the next question was “Why are Christians killing people?” Obviously this player is secular and has issues discriminating reality from the game. This was my answer “Because we know this is a game.” After that the poor fellow was bombarded with many unkindly comments from other secular players.

We are Christian and we are Christian gamers. We believe that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior and died for our sins. In this gaming community Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior and leader of this community of Christian gamers. Our faith come first then family and real life after that is games. The Christian gamer does all things that God asks us to do in our faith in our lives and with our families whatever little time is left we use to game.

God bless all that read this with His love, light, grace, mercy, and wisdom. In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen.

21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. Revelation 22:21 (KJV)
