Subj: RE: D&D
As a Bible believer though we are bound to follow the commadments of the
Bible, and the Bible is clear in telling us to avoid all "appearance of evil"
(I Thess 15:22).
God also gives us the things we are to think on (Phil 4:8). D&D would, in my
opinion, fall under both of these [negatively].
Have a super day in Jesus,

Subj: D&D... EVIL?
I don't pretend to have any direct knowledge of the new "Christian" fantasy
games. The reason for that is that after being an avid D&D devotee for
several years, I found it necessary to swear off role playing games. Granting
that there is very probably a large dose of personal weakness involved on my
part, I still find it naive to claim that D&D is alright "as long as one
doesn't get into casting spells". The sorcery aspect of D&D is unavoidable,
as born out by my many experiences in the D&D population in the
Columbia/Ellicott City, MD area. There is no such thing as a D&D round that
is unaffected by the occult. In order to progress to the highest levels
(anything beyond level 15) one must get into pagansism (calling out to false
deities). I have to go now.

Subj: REPLY TO MSG# 11990 (RE: D&D... EVIL?)
This is a continuation of my previous message. I had to stop abruptly because
someone else had an urgent use for my telephone line.
Anyway, when I had a character that began getting into the upper teens in
terms of mastery levels, I was forced BY THE RULES to choose a mythological
deity whom I would invoke to allow me to make use of the more extraordinary
abilities of which my character was capable. Between that and the
obsessive/compulsive behavior which regular play has elicited from nearly all
of my friends, I came to the conclusion that D&D is at best a psychologically
unhealthy environment, and at worst a demonic device for introducing high
school aged children into the world of the occult.
Yours in Messiah Jesus, King of Israel,

Sorry to interrupt your conversation on D&D, but I had to speak (woof woof).
Yes, in college I got involved heavily into D&D.(5-6hrs every night). I am
not a mystical or unballanced person. I got involved because I was able to
manipulate my "men" to do what I wanted. I treated them as one who was in
control. I was the King and they were the serfs. It was great to be
DungeonMaster because I WAS IN CONTROL. For me this was my downfall. I lost
40 lbs, flunked 2 classes, came close to losing my fiance', and was fired from
my job. I feel this was because of the influence of D&D on my life. I lost
Christ but HE DIDN'T LOSE ME!!!!! Thank the Lord. Do I believe that everybody
who plays D&D is going to HHHEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLL. No, But don't let your eyes
get off Christ and to something like this fantasy that can control your life.
REMEMBER, EVEN THE ALCOHOLIC SAYS HE DOESN'T HAVE A PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!
