Christians who Doom!

#1

Post by dannymears » Wed Jul 22, 2020 3:38 pm

Hey everyone!

I'm pretty new here so thought I would introduce myself.
I'm a Christian who is a huge Doom fan. No game has affected me as much as Doom has over the years, especially after watching my Dad play the SNES version back in the mid-90's.

On a faith level, I've always found it interesting why Christians seem to hate this game given that it's literally about killing demons! :lol:
Anyway, just wondered if there where any like-minded Christian folks out there who enjoy doing 'The Lord's work' :cool: *cocks shotgun*

Or even if you're not a Christian, would just be good to get to know some folks so we can hit some Doom 2 co-op at some point! :biggrin:

Anyway! Cheers!

I think there is no reason why would Christians ( or any other believers ) find Doom inappropirate more than any other videogame. I am a Christian too and the only kind of videogames I would have a problem with would be some that are meant to make inappropirate fun of anyone or anything that is too dear for someone. For example, I made a lot of custom monsters in my life, received a plenty of monster requests - and the only ones I turned down was making a Ganesha ( a Hindu god ) because I did not like the idea of people being able to shoot at someone who is worshipped as a good being ). But when it comes to shooting at beings that generally represent evil...I dont mind that.

This, there is no reason why being a Christian prevents you from playing something if you know that it does not affect your religion at all, for example, I am a Christian and my project is based on various parts of the Christian religion, containing sacred items and biblical angels n.n

Yeah, I personally never thought there was anything wrong with enjoying Doom and being a Christian. I don't understand why many Christians hate this game either, maybe because of the violence but even then a lot are just fine with Counter Strike (in which you kill humans so technically it's worse?) and even Quake 3 and games like that so... dunno :p

Anyways, really cool to see others who think in a similar way!
No Gucci, no Prada, no Supreme, but my sadness got an ending, my smile shining like bling-bling, i'm so blessed feeling like a king!

play with my bots or bad stuff will happen to u >:c
