The short answer. Only you and God can answer that together. The longer, CC answer?...
We as a community are asked often why Christians would be caught playing violent video games, or games which feature occult references, or games with bad language, or anything of this sort. There are many opinions on this issue, and lots and lots of our best members have given their opinions on these questions. The following will be an amalgamation of many of the opinions and responses, with some Scriptural reference included, as well as some other resources which might help a new Christian or a non-Christian understand our viewpoint best.
Much of the following information will be compartmentalized in spoilers so that you can view headings dealing with each part of the answer in an orderly, less cluttered fashion.
Before we begin with OPINION and magniloquent rhetoric or hyperbole, we'd like to share the answers to some similar questions put together by the wonderful people of GotQuestions.org
What GotQuestions.org has to say:
We feel that our community does this. We know that young teens to older adults are going to play these games, and we offer them a place where they can not only play them in a family-safe atmosphere, but we offer Bible Study, fellowship, and a Fire for Christ as well.
Some of our member opinions put it even better, here are a few of them from over the years...
What our members have to say
An interesting aside:
Anything "of this world" or "of the flesh" has the capacity to lead us away from Our Shepherd, but we must hope that He has his eyes on His Sheep, and that He will bring us back into the flock if we stray too far.
The least we can do is take all of those things "not of the spirit" and try to produce spiritual growth through them, despite their worldliness. Christian movies do this, Christian games and music do this, why can't secular entertainments do the same?
God can use ANYONE or ANYTHING to fulfill His Will and Purpose according to: "Has the potter no right over the clay, to make out of the same lump one vessel for beauty and another for menial use?" (Romans 9:21 RSV). So Scripture itself supports the idea that God can use anybody, believer or nonbeliever.
In Isaiah we are told that Nebuchadnezzar was the servant of God (Jeremiah 27:6), even though he was a Babylonian pagan. Cyrus the Persian king is called "God's anointed one," (Isaiah 45:1). God speaks of him as "my shepherd" (Isaiah 44:28), though he too was an unbeliever. If we understand life from the Biblical point of view, we must know that all people and all things can be used of God. So it is not a question of whether you are going to be used of God or not, or your gameplay, or your community. As this passage points out, the question is, How does God plan to use you? What is he going to do with you? To what purpose is he going to put you in his program? Will it be a noble purpose, or will it be, as this version says, an ignoble? Will it be for good or bad, blessing or judgment? We need to clearly understand this fact.
In the Christian Crew, we believe, truly believe, that God uses our efforts, at all times, and in all ways to reach those who would otherwise never step foot into a church, or otherwise never have a POSITIVE debate with a saved person, or otherwise come to Him.
It is our fondest hope that this Answer satisfies your Question. If it does not, we would be more than happy to pray and research this topic with you further. You have only to reach out, that's what our community is for!
With blessings and a fervent hope that we have helped, The Christian Crew.
