This is the place to hang out with Christians who love gaming. If you are a Christian or an open-minded individual I encourage you to join and stay a while.

Ugh. Joel Olesten...
What's wrong with Joel Osteen (not olesten)?
I don't like his style of preaching. He is all about the goodness of God. That's only half of what people need to know though. He rarely emphasizes (think I spelt that right) on sin and the wrath of God. Both of those things in my opinion are very important.
Sounds like he belongs to a United Church also what I call a feel good church in all honesty.
"feel good man"
"feel good men"
Hey the "wrath of GOD" comes to those who seek it. I think we should best focus on how good GOD is so that we could complain less and be more thankful. It is also to bring optimism to the people in these hard times. I don't know about you, but times are really hard for a lot of people and we need some good news. The whole point of Joel's message is that everyone is welcome to go to GOD and not to condemn people (which no human has the power of). That is why I am kinda against the whole "wrath of GOD" preaching, while it is true, it is the main reason why so many have blindly turn to Christianity and have been mislead like during the crusades or have become atheist. In my opinion, backed by facts and experiences, it is a fear tactic. If you haven't done anything wrong and always honored GOD, then you should be at peace with GOD. One who fears GOD out of blatant fear, because they are afraid that lightning is about to come down, has obviously a problem with GOD. It clearly states countless of times in the bible that with GOD one shall not walk in fear.
In my honest opinion, GOD is fair and he does not stoop down to the human level to get mad at you for your petty sins, because if it were so many of us wouldn't be playing video games. GOD is infinitely greater beyond imagination to get mad at us, now he might teach us a lesson or two, but that is for our own bettering or to prevent us from doing something foolish. Remember that we are all his creation, not one of us is not a child of GOD. I know that GOD loves me and that GOD loves all of you, and I am about to go and catch some ZZZZZZzzzzZZZ (what I said was just my opinion backed by my own experiences).
May El Shaddai The Almighty Empower guide you and keep you. Good night
peace be among you!
Well I think God would be disappointed when you sin. You think He wouldn't be disappointed if you let say hypothetically had premarital sex?
@carson-and so it is brought up 0_o
So yeah the good of God is only half of God. Read Revelations. The point of it is for you to love God, but also fear him because of his almighty power.
I love Revelations nuff said...
