Idols in Video Games

 

 

Cordova, TN; July 17, in the year of our Lord 2015--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is peeking at a very dangerous topic. Video games can become an idol to some people. We Christians are warned by God to reject anything in our lives that become a false idol. That does not mean that video games are an idol to everyone. As I looked at this issue I realized it was even deeper than that. There are false idols within some video games. Many of the Final Fantasy video games have a god or goddess in it. In fact some of the later Final Fantasy video games has players attacking a god like character.

I know some out there right are saying: “it is just a game, no one is actually worshiping a false god within a video game.” Why are people declaring their religion to be: ‘The Force,” on governmental censuses? Where did someone get the idea of the force? Where did they get the idea of using the force as a religion? There were these just entertainment movies called Star Wars. And that just entertainment made some people decide it was their religious belief. In case you forgot there were also plenty of Star Wars video games that promoted that belief to turn people away from God. So it obvious that entertainment can change the opinions of people. It is also obvious that entertainment can change the core belief system of some people.

I was not done there in my analysis though. It gets even deeper in modern day video games. Many of the game designers, and developers are being treated like idols themselves. They are human beings like the rest of us. They are no more special than you or me. I treat everyone the same. I do not comprehend treating someone better because one of their ideas made hundreds of millions of dollars. Or because they get in front of an audience and read from a teleprompter. There were a lot of other people that helped a company become a success. There are a lot of people whose ideas are not given an opportunity. Any executive at any video game company wants our money for their products. I refuse to bow down and worship anyone who makes any product I enjoy.

Finally this goes for me as well. I know some people out there see me as a celebrity. Let me be perfectly clear. I am a man with faults and failings. I make mistakes. I am far from perfect. I am merely a man working as hard as I can to do God’s will for my life. I strive to point everyone to God. Do not idol worship me. If you admire anything about me - admire the fact that I am willing for God to use me for the Kingdom of Heaven. Any success I have had is God working through me.


God bless,
