I asked Marty Bee to do this article for me since he has been inside the computer
games making world. I believe his observations are powerful. I decided I should
add an analysis of how these fantasy distractions directly affect a believer's
victory and walk before the Lord Jesus Christ. I trust this is a help to you.
BEE'S OBSERVATIONS ON COMPUTER GAMES
verses come to mind right off the bat:
Thessalonians 5:22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.
2:4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first
love. 5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do
the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick
out of his place, except thou repent.
The word of God is very specific about dabbling with the occult:
18:10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter
to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or
an enchanter, or a witch, 11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits,
or a wizard, or a necromancer.
It also has something to say for those of us who just want to LOOK a little bit:
Exodus 23:13 And in all things that I have said unto you
be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it
be heard out of thy mouth. (notice it says not to even mention their names).
So I have some thoughts about computer games, RPG"s, and Dungeons & Dragons.
My heart catches a bit when I read a Christian reviewer (he also has a magazine
dedicated to Christian Computing) say that its OK to play a game like Baldur"s
Gate if you are mature enough. Baldur"s gate is the video game version of
Dungeons & Dragons, "Forgotten Realms." You have a chance to enjoy all
the killing, virtual sex (yes SEX), spell casting, raising the dead and so you
want all from the comfort of your keyboard. D & D is "Occultism 101"
for those of you that don"t know. It affords a chance to have what is called
in the industry an "immersive" experience. That is you get to really
"live it". One could easily see this as a training ground for all sorts
of new Wiccan"s, Neo-Pagans and so on. Paul had a different viewpoint, if
it "offends a brother for me to eat meat sacrificed to idols, may I never
eat meat again."
That Christians get involved with this is no surprise either. I talked to one
person who was a leader in his church and he admitted (ashamedly) that his favorite
game was Baldur"s Gate. Now I am not totally free from guilt here either.
I am developing games on my own. With my artistic ability I was approached by
someone who wanted to build another "Baldur"s Gate" online. This
was a possible big profit idea too. The video game industry is actually bigger
than the movies in terms of profit. I was merrily headed into this big project
with dollar signs dancing in my head. Then the Lord caught my attention as if
to say "Ahem, what about the occult connection in all this Marty?" "What
about all your friends that have come out of the occult and seen actual DEMONIC
ACTIVITY?" I had to bow out of that real quick with an explanation that I
couldn"t really go any farther in the process. (Now you know why we are referred
to as sheep in the Bible, we are constantly prone to wander...)
The industry is built on four pillars or false gods. I borrow three of them from
Billy Graham"s 20th anniversary sermon at the Hollywood Bowl. Baal (the god
of sex and eroticism), Molech (violence and mayhem), Mammon (money), and finally
Satan himself (the occult). iD software is the grandaddy of the PC game industry.
iD"s 3D engine is what drives most of the current FPS (First Person Shooters)
in the industry today. Games like "Alice", "Half-Life" and
"Quake III". Their office was in an all black building and they picked
their office number very carefully "666". All through their first Quake
you are confronted with upside down pentagrams, vaguely occult symbols on stretched
skins, devil heads and supernatural fiends. You play the part of a "space
marine" so I don"t know how you end up fighting the occult. DOOM had
many of the same elements in it. Their very first shooter that defined the genre
was "Escape from Castle Wolfenstein". You have to literally blast and
shoot your way out of the Nazi stronghold to get out. This game is banned by the
way in Germany.
latest incarnation of Castle Wolfenstein has much better graphics and effects
but now you not only face the Nazi"s but undead warriors that Himmler has
called up by occult means. iD is totally aware that we are strongly attracted
to the darkness and uses this to make millions off of our children (us essentially)
John 3:19. I don"t think they are Satanists or anything like that but they
are simply cashing in on the Devil (payback is going to be something else though).
These games are by far some of the most bloody that you have ever seen. Enemies
don"t just die and fall over but explode into various bloody parts and smears.
Mammon (their profit), Molech (kill, kill, kill), and Satan are all served in
Baal will find his counterpart in the RPG"s, Tombraider and Duke Nukem. The
maker of Duke Nukem regretted that he could show more naked flesh on his covers
and in his games. It is literally a "go shoot the alien cats in the Los Angeles
adult movie house" set up with this one. My wife gets offended everytime
she sees the coverart for many of the fantasy series with the oversexed and underdressed
females on the covers.
But this only a taste of what is available down at the local retail superstore.
I now wish to examine another genre of game called the "Adventure Game".
It is like the RPG only not usually done in a group. One title that caught my
eye is "Gabriel Knight, Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned." We
have vampires attacking children in this one, but it gets steadily worse. Gabriel
finds himself in the French village of "Rennes la Chateau." This place
was made famous by an occult book that came out some years ago called "Holy
Blood, Holy Grail". What it maintains is that Jesus never died, but traveled
to the south of France with Mary Magdalene and settled down and had children.
They eventually became one of the bloodlines of the French kings and exist today
as the Plantagenet line. The book maintains that this bloodline will eventually
rule from Jerusalem (read the ANTI-CHRIST here if you are awake.) We know where
they were doing their research on this one. There is only one clear winner with
this game, Satan and the cause of the coming Man of Sin.
All of this barely touches the surface of modern culture. We have become "neo-pagans"
in the phraseology of Chuck Colson. So "how then shall we live?" The
words of Jesus to the church at Ephesus in Revelation come to mind: Repent and
do the first things...
For me personally this study was a "course correction". I had initially
gotten into game design after seeing a demon-head and pentagram displayed prominently
on a CNN special on game designers. I just thought something could be done in
the Christian realm that would be uplifting to the cause of Christ. But I find
that the Lord is a much more demanding client than the world. Some things I CANNOT
do: Haunted houses, UFO"s (this bothers a close Christian brother of mine
in Eastern Europe), RPG"s that emphasize the occult and of course the overtly
violent. I hope that I can fine tune my mission to the point where I can produce
something that enlightens and entertains and yet is true to the cause of Christ.
* * * * *
Bee in a letter recently talking about how some of you will defend certain games:
will tell you all about Myst and Riven next as non-violent alternatives. All you
have to know about the two brothers that built those is that they were addicted
to C. S. Lewis. One of the popular games to hit the Christian market gave the
player a chance to choose between an angel OR a demon (War In Heaven). I saw the
early concept art for the demons, lets just say they had seen a little too much
"Tomb Raider". I couldn't square that with a Christian point of view.
again for your hard work on Lewis. Just ditching my one and only Narnia book itself
seemed to open up more ideas on the Revelation game I am working on... (makes
you wonder don't it?) I was always somewhat bothered by the fact that the first
creature that the youngest child meets is a faun (read the god Pan or Satan).
VAN NATTAN DISCUSSES WAYS THESE GAMES AFFECT THE BELIEVER'S THINKING
Bee has said many of the things which you need in order to see the biblical reason
for shucking off these computer games, at least the ones based in evil. I want
to show you four areas of evil associated with these games:
trivialize the truth.
tune pianos for a living. I was tuning in Fremont, Michigan one day, and the teen
age kid of the house was playing a computer game called "Doom". He was
in hell with a big gun and various weapons trying to kill all the demons and escape
back to earth. By the time I finished tuning, he had made it out of hell and was
back in Fremont.
you can say anything you like about such fantasy friend, but I believe Satan wants
YOU and every person on earth to make a game out of hell and eternity. Whether
via the theater, worldly music, Nashville, or a computer game, the world has been
mocking hell and damnation for a long time now.
asked the kid playing the game, "If you were really in hell, do you think
you could shoot your way out?" He pondered the question for a while, and
then said, "I don't think that is the way it is in the Bible. I think once
you are in hell, you get to stay there forever." Well, that kid figured it
out and had better theology than a lot of seminary professors, but it took him
a long time to drag the truth to the surface. Satan wants the truth of God's Word
trivialized, and what better way than to make a game of damnation?
of you preachers preach sin and righteousness and judgment right, but you are
a practical atheist for six days a week in front of your computer. Those Satanists
who make the games saw you coming preacher, and they have been planning on messing
with your mind.
64:6 They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search: both the inward
thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep.
you every wonder why so many preachers and saints are running after UFO theology
and junk prophecy? Why did Christians go for this mysterious Drosnin and his numbers
racket? I will tell you. It comes of too much fantasy and not enough real life
experience. Now, let me illustrate. You have a choice to play some fantasy game
in space on the computer, or you can go have coffee with a friend. You can bash
your way out of hell, or you can shoot pool with Bufford Higgins in his basement.
Which one do you chose.
are a bunch of dead head preachers today who will go for the computer fantasy
every time friend. The problem is not only that you missed fellowship with Bufford.
You also chose to dive into the unreal at the expense of the real. Having coffee
with friends, of shooting pool with Bufford, are real time, real world, and they
do not lead you anywhere, assuming you are not in a bar when you do these things.
have never heard so many saints come up with stupid notions about Bible prophecy
as in the last ten years, and I am convinced that the reason is computer fantasy
obsessions. People are feasting their minds on things which never existed and
never will. They do this so much that when Texe Marrs tells them that their credit
card is the mark of the Beast, they believe him. They are so gullible that they
will take any fool thing off of a crooked preacher in the area of prophecy, especially
if there are yannis and greys in it.
6:5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every
imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
Genesis 8:21 And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart,
I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination
of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every
thing living, as I have done.
Luke 1:51 He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in
the imagination of their hearts.
cannot find anywhere in the Bible where God says anything good about man's imagination.
You are really in trouble when you feed your imagination at the expense of REAL
LIFE experiences. Some of your poor clones of Balaam have not looked up at the
stars in years. Too busy shooting up cyberspace.
I suggest you take a week of fasting from everything but E-Mail? Prepare your
sermons the long way. Get the old KJV and a Strong's, and go up the creek, sit
on a rock, and get blessed once without pounding the buttons. Let someone else
feed the spreadsheet. No games, and no surfing for allegedly indispensable news
and sermon illustrations on the Web. No visiting my Journal. Every time you think
of the computer, walk briskly outside, and look around, or call an old friend,
or read a chapter from Proverbs. Silly idea, eh? Well, you are addicted to cyberspace,
and you are nothing but a worthless wart on Satan's index finger.
Computer games invite devils to take over your mind.
a. "With" devils
Christians can be possessed
WITH devils, but not BY devils. Nowhere in the Bible is an Israelite said to be
possessed BY devils. My dog can be possessed WITH fleas, by my dog is not possessed
BY the fleas. The wording of the King James Bible here is very important. King
Saul was possessed WITH a devil, but King Saul did not go to hell, for Samuel
told him at the end of his life that he would be with Samuel soon. If Samuel was
not in hell, then Saul was not either. This is important to the rest of this discussion.
"... a worse thing" is coming
told about a man who had a devil, and he got rid of the devil by human zeal. Let's
read about it as Jesus told it:
12:43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places,
seeking rest, and findeth none. 44 Then he saith, I will return into my house
from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.
45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked
than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man
is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.
of you will look at your games and clean them up, but you will not see in those
games a pattern of life and mental activity which is evil. You will get clean
to the degree that it does not interfere with your fun, right. Well, I have seen
this, and one day you will not only be back in hell shooting up devils and making
the blood fly-- You will be having cybersex with a devil whore while your wife
goes to bed alone. Mark it down sir.
Bee has also said that he has seen demonic possession result from computer games.
There is a power there which no one can estimate, and you play a deadly game friend,
for devils are watching over your shoulder. They are parked in your cache memorizing
your favorite URLs. Thus, these devils are at least in your home, if not in control
of your mind. They cannot own your spirit, but they sure can have you mind. Tell
me, how is your Bible reading and prayer life when you are deep into these games?
Computer games blaspheme God.
diverge here to a movie which played some years back called Lawn Mower Man.
In this movie, a scientist takes a dull kid and puts him on a computor. The kid
takes over and turns on the scientist. The scientist has to use his mind to fight
back against the kid, and the big scene of the flick is when the kid puts the
scientist on the cross and torments him mentally as the scientist writhes in pain.
is a classic example of how Hollywood makes book on Jesus and the Gospel. Computer
games are full of such blasphemy. Why? Computer game makers hate God. They are
vastly the type who worship Satan and are given to sodomy and filthy living. They
NEED to trash God and the Gospel. You can say you don't pay any attention to these
blasphemies, but you are a fool. That's right, you are a FOOL.
Proverbs 23:7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:
Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.
are what you think. If you fill your mind with blasphemous thoughts, that is what
you will one day give way to. Hitler started out telling Himler that they would
lie long and loud to the German people, and Germans would believe them. It worked,
but analysts have concluded that Hitler also believed his own lies by the end
of his life.
dare you to subject your videos and computer games to the Word of God. Oh, I imagine
you THINK you do this, but you don't, for if you did, you would learn that over
and over God and His Word are offended.
Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful,
and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of
soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts
and intents of the heart.
you know what you are doing? Amos talked about you who thank God for filth and
then dive in:
4:5 And offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving with leaven, and proclaim and publish
the free offerings: for this liketh you, O ye children of Israel, saith the Lord
Computer games change your mental responses to life.
The computer has so many
seemingly innocent uses. Here I sit, trying to challenge you to do right and glorify
God, and you could be in Perth, Australia, or Singapore. What great opportunities
we now have in cyberspace. But, with all good things, there is a twist from our
adversary. The most evil aspect of the computer is that this vast measureless
reservoir of information can suck us into surfing the Internet endlessly, and
our home and family are left out. It may not be like watching network TV, but
it is just as deadly at destroying the family.
you may easily control this if you keep your computer time scheduled, and if you
make it a task oriented thing. This is how I deal with it. This is why you don't
see as many articles written by me these days. My family comes before you, and
if you don't like that, it's just tough bunkie.
I used to play SimCity. It seemed innocent enough. Nothing nasty in that game.
But, I got to where I had to check and see how my cash flow was going, and I had
to make the city bigger and bigger. In my mind, the thing was a cross between
a silly game and something urgent. Who suffered? Me. My Bible reading came way
to late when I was blurry eyed at best, and my wife went to bed alone.
have no games now. I have conditioned my thinking that the computer is ONLY a
tool to accomplish what I should do with it for the glory of God. I slip, but
I sure catch it from the Holy Ghost, for He and I know the rules. You can tell
me that I am the only one with this problem, and you can shoot your way out of
hell, or commit yourself to a batch of godless competitors from around the world
in some group game, and you have not distraction. I refuse to believe you friend.
Corinthians 10:7 Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written,
The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.
that how your evening goes? Play, play, play?
are you FOR?
Psalm 120:6 My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth
peace. 7 I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.
you dwell with those, in your imagination, who long for peace? The Bible believer
is at war in spiritual ways, and this we dare not back away from. (Eph. 6) I find
though, that I am tempted to let my mind go to physical solutions to life's problems.
I think of my guns, and I think of my fists. Then I am ashamed, for I remember
that, physically, I am to turn the other cheek, while in regard to principalities
and powers, I am to be vicious with Satan. The weapons are to be reserved for
the war in the spirit, and those weapons are not to be carnal but spiritual also.
when you mix physical guns, bombs, and explosions with spiritual forces in hell
or space, you are confounding the two realms of life. When you are out there on
the street, you will be conditioned, even if ever so slightly, to deal physically
with spiritual matters and wickedness in other people. The weapons of your warfare,
which are mighty to the pulling down of strongholds, will be cast aside, and your
raging mouth, and even your fists and guns, may come out.
me you don't have a problem with this, and I will tell you you are a bold faced
liar. The boys at Columbine sure had the real world all mixed up with cyberspace.
Sense of wonder
talked about the "sense of wonder." He was not a man who gave glory
to God, but he was a man who had the world in his heart. All men are given several
things from God at birth. They are given a conscience. They are given light in
1:8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9 That
was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
has the world in his heart.
3:11 He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world
in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the
beginning to the end.
average Fundamental Bible believer is so aggressive against environmentalism and
evolution that he is very suspicious of anyone who is move by nature. Well, I
see in my Bible a man who was a ferocious fighter against the enemies of God,
yet he was very attentive to the natural beauty of God's creation. This is David:
19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
talks this way over and over in the Psalms. Even today, the Jewish people have
retained a zeal for the arts, though often affected by sin and notions of ungodly
things. It is NOT a strength of Bible believers today that they have no sense
of wonder and very little interest in God's creation, which they claim to promote
in Genesis 1-3.
you name any stars in the heavens? Do you know even one constellation? Do you
know where Thailand is? Can you describe a baboon? At high noon, could you tell
someone right where the sun will go down on the horizon tonight?
is no longer of any interest to modern man. TV, videos, material things, and the
Internet have NOT enhanced man's appreciation for natural beauty and the creation
of God. These factors, over the past 50 years, have destroyed this thing God WANTS
in man. You and I have come to the end of the line, as far as I am concerned,
in the computer age, and we now have the Lord's Church, on the narrow way, carrying
the KJV, with a smart mouthed attitude toward the Lord's creation. We are in trouble.
Long ago, men did not have the computer, but they had the world in their heart--
even the man of the world!
seems to me that the ultimate flight and extreme destination into the darkness
is found in a computer game filled with fantasy made in the mind of some sodomite
in a wee room in a building a city block square in Seattle. And you handed him
your mind to fill with HIS world! What follows will be best read on a still night
with the lights down low and with a French accent, if you can muster it. Just
poke your lower jaw out as you talk. Enjoy:

on earth do you expect from the world-- "good clean fun"? Not a chance
friend. I find that Bible believers are blabbering on and on about the world offering
something clean to us. What insanity. The only thing in the whole world which
I can tolerate, simply as distraction, is Reiman Publishing's Country Magazine.
It seems to be very well salted, but I am keeping and eye on them. It is possible
that the reason they have not offended is because there are Bible believers in
the head office.
may protest that we need to buy books, and maybe an occasional video, on an issue
or from some organization in order not to be "ignorant of his devices".
Well, what kind of research are YOU doing as you rage around in hell killing demons
and making the blood fly? Is this some random sampling of anatomical investigation?
Try going down to the mortuary and watching them drain the real blood from a dead
body. That will cure you of your morbid "research" bunkie.
what are you learning, that will make you a better servant of Christ, from watching
those fantasy warrior Amazons with size 68 busts and size 6 waists smashing wimpy
men around? How would you like God to turn you wife into such a freak? Face it
friend, you are on a lust trip, and you have a whore house on your hard drive!
as far as Hollywood and computer games are concerned, this whole field is dominated
by God haters, queers, and New Age perverts. Their conscience is "seared
with a hot iron," so they will do the works of their father, Satan. I find
that the handful of games that used to seem clean are now becoming dirty or violent,
and more so with each "upgrade". It is like the myth of a "clean
comedian". I heard Bill Cosby say, back in the 1970s, that a really good
comedian never had to resort to filth in order to survive, even in Las Vegas.
Well, guess what? Cosby's ratings dropped, and he resorted to dirty humor. I heard
some myself coming from him.
Harvey, the conservative good feeling commentator long ago, would tell sexually
explicit stories. Why? Answer-- To keep his ratings up. He was a Freemason, so
his mind was in his groin, and America liked his "good clean" filth.
Digest puts up great articles attacking the lax courts in dealing with sexual
offenders, and at the bottom of the page where that article ends, there is a "good
clean" story with a sexual innuendo. I wrote them about this hypocrisy, and
they wrote back, "We publish what our readers like." Well, I am sure
glad Jesus didn't teach what those Pharisees wanted to hear.
computer games, at their most innocent, are made by pagans, marketed in pagan
magazines you shouldn't have in your home, and played by people with a great tolerance
for pagan content.
12:36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall
give account thereof in the day of judgment. 37 For by thy words thou shalt
be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
do not want to be overly dramatic about computer games and the future, but the
following must be considered:
They will become more technical, more real, more deadly in person to person contact,
and they will demand more from the players. By MORE, I mean more commitment to
the degree that life away from the computer monitor will begin to be a world of
playing out what was in the game world.
They will become more bloody, more sexually filthy, and more graphic. By MORE,
again I mean taking the sexual perversion and blood lust to the street and acting
They will take on even more of a metaphysical and spiritual aspect as time passes.
By MORE, again I mean taking the spiritual fantasies of the game to the street
and school yard to act out Satanic rituals, and this will open doors for devils
to enter and drive the victims on and on into depths of depravity that will result
in death and suicide.
Eventually, the collective mind of the masses and asses will become one perpetual
throbbing game. All culture will become immersed in the cult, and anyone not gaming
will be thought of as a freak.
will one day be defined by the gaming world for many people on planet earth. This
will result in a large percentage of people unable to rationalize life's greater
issues. History, while mostly lost now, will be totally obliterated in the end.
I believe we already see this partially as people see no peril in the White race
governments going hell bent for election into worldwide debt and mindless fiat
money printing. Money, economy-- these notions are alien to the gaming world.
see this transfer of fantasy in our space scientists who design space stations
and vehicles on the model of Star Wars. They crave to find ET and Martians peeking
at them, though they would deny that space themes and science fiction in entertainment
since the 1950s has driven them to crave things once thought to be mad. I fully
anticipate that the day will come soon when there will be no disconnect by merely
logging off of the computer.
folks who watch those in high places speculate that the New World Order will soon
turn off the Internet in order to keep some false flag event from going viral.
What a surprise they would have if the Web was switched off, and nationwide riots
broke out by gamers going insane from withdrawal.
once the mindset is reached, you can expect the whole civilized world to demand
war, riot, and hell nonstop. The whole computer world will easily become precisely
the same world as we see in the end of the Roman Empire. The government had to
build coliseums and give people death, mayhem, and blood to keep them amused.
Will we one day have gaming in the US and European national budgets? The political
party that gives the plebes more games will win elections.
tricks of the programmers of games must be considered. Will you or your children
open this door? What good thing do you expect a godless programmer to give you?
What could you be doing for Jesus Christ if you were not sitting in the spell
of the damned bastards of mental hell?
2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
you think that if Jesus came back and visited your home he would want to sit and
play online games for hours, or would he crave fellowship with YOU?
what will the reward be if you delete ALL of your games and return to life as
you once knew it?
You will one day rule the world. Overstatement? I think not. Real life demands
various responses to crises and to explosive unpredictables. These cannot be gotten
ready for by diving into cyberspace and virtual computer parameters. Those who
cope best with the real world are those who lived in it ALL THEIR LIVES and coped
and learned. The day could well come when those who have had no fantasy world
other than in books, will be highly sought after. The gamers will be the drones
who do the mundane tasks, and the non-gamers who matured in the real world will
be paid top dollar to simply make things work for the drones.
me give you an example. How many gamers do you think could change a flat tire
using the spare installed in the auto? Indeed, how many gamers do you think would
know how to check the oil level in their car? Do you?
