I don't have a working television in my house. †I don't go see movies in the theater. †Nine tenths of all American entertainment is GARBAGE!! That in many cases includes video games. †Think about it this way... †if you had friends over and they started making out on your sofa, then just got right to business... †would you allow it? †Why certainly not! †That's disgusting. †But if you watch prime time television you allow strangers to do the same in your living room. †Same with many of the games especially if they involve killing. †If it's not something you would be comfortable with in person, why allow it or practice it?

Creation teaches that we were made special, made in the image of God, etc. †Evolution, in the meantime, teaches we came from monkeys and that we're nothing more than animals with better teeth and the ability to talk and walk. †The teaching of creation was taken out of schools a long time ago...too "religious" to be allowed. †If you ask me, the particulars of evolution are a religion in and of itself, as you have to believe that all these random events happened perfectly to get us here...even though scientific fact and the bible line up very very closely.
Which sorta brings me back to the point of this particular forum...we teach kids about evolution (that we're nothing more than animals with better teeth that can talk), we market and parents allow them to play violent video games, then we see things like Columbine, etc., happen around us.
Is it any wonder?...:wink:

Which leads me to another question.... If this child had been educated at home, privately, or in a system that taught Creation and had it's act together enough to keep kids from picking on each other.... would this have happened?

As for content of games affecting kids, I would say it's all in what mom and dad allow them to play. †The thing about content is that if you get blown away in a video game, you have another life. †It isn't that way in the real world. †I guess maybe it paints a false picture and sorta warps reality. †I have no problem with letting kids play video games, but there's a parental role to be played too...both in content and duration of play-time.
As for the anti-social thing...it's like anything else, it can become addicting to the point that there's nothing else to do but camp out in front of the TV and play Playstation. It's no longer like when I was small, when all there was to do was go outside and play ball and stuff like that. You had to think, you were challenged, you did things that kept you busy both physically and mentally. †All video games really do is "enhance" (used loosely) reflexes if you think about it.
Maybe this generation is so dumbed out on video games that we've lost our edge when it comes to the level of excellence in our schools? There's a spin-off sound off point for ya? LOL :-)

The same way books and movies are seen as entertainment.
I do not understand how any video game that involves killing or war could be seen as entertainment.
People think they're harmless, but if you get enough exposure to these things, they will effect you.

Keep in mind we are in a time where we need to be prepared and ready, we need to be spiritually grounded, and give our All to the Lord.

Your spirit is what you feed it. Feed it Gods word and you will become like Him. Feed it the world and you will become like the world. We are what we feed ourselves.
