Your good spoken evil [May. 16th, 2004|05:23 pm]


Folks, recently amongst you i hear that there is evil, and you claim that it is good. No matter what good it is, do not do it, if it is spoken evil of. If listeining to secular music is being spoken evil of you then do not do it. No matter how fun yugioh or any other card game is, if you are being spoken evil of about it, do not do it. And i know people that speak evil of most people who play it, so dont.

Sadly i thought

I thought people would have a contriversy with this. I do not care what the "popular" kids think. but 2 things make this real obvious what you should do. The "popular" kids need Jesus too. There for if they dont like what you do and it isnt commanded in teh bible to already do it, then dont do it. "do not let your good be spoken evil of" its right in the bible. The second thing is Yugioh is a card game of monsters, and magic, and even a realm of darkness, that the egyptians used to temper with. The bible clearly says stay away from these things, and you know what, do some research the game wasnt created "just for fun" there is a point, and obviously so many of us can not see the darkness in card games like that. The bible says for us to stay away from them, and do not even live around them, but to destroy that influence. I pray the Lord opens your eyes. Research it some, and you will see.

well, you see the thing is, if someone actually thinks yugioh is real, then they are a moron. Most people know it is just pretend, so it causes no mental harm. Imaginations are good things to have. Magic isn't real. So what is the harm in pretending? All the yugioh and magic players I have met are usually really smart, and most are Christians, pretty strong Christians. So its obvious these cards have no effect to slash at their faith. And the kids who think its "evil" to play yugioh have a serious problem, and probably need to realize that Jesus accepted everybody, He would even accept yugioh players. I am not trying to make fun of you or anything, so don't take this the wrong way.

i think what he is saying is not that he doesnt accept those who play, but that the lost people who really need Jesus dont like it, and that makes them less likely to accept the christians who otherwise could be the ones to help them come to Christ.

and our enemy is a deceiving one. he wants us to think it isnt affecting us when in fact it is, whether we realize it or not. it may not make us worse necessarily, but could cause us to get stuck on one level in our relationship with God, rather than growing closer to Him and fulfilling what we could be if these games were not hindering us.

but i'm glad you were mature about your disagreement. rather than "yelling" and getting mean and nasty about it.

hope this helps some.
