Minecraft’s been all the rage lately. I’ll be honest, I haven’t played it myself, and I don’t know what the game really consists of. However, I just get a feeling that the Christian Gaming Zone has gotten the wrong idea.
Go ahead, read the review: It’s very creative, to say the least. I have to wonder if the writer truly believes what they are saying, or if they’re just really trying to form any parallel they can, at the fear of the webmaster calling down the fury of Hell on them. I really want to think the latter, with a quote like this…
“…there are clues to the Christian purpose of the game. The most obvious is the name: Minecraft Alpha. This is of course a reference to Jesus’ revelation that He is the Alpha and the Omega (Rev. 22:13).”
…Or maybe because it’s the final build, thus the ‘Alpha’ tag?
Oh, there’s even a picture of the writer doing some missionary work in the ‘Classic’ area, claiming that the user he chatted with became born again.
I”m really not one to mock people, or make fun of them because of their different, skewed views… but come on. Seriously? This is on a whole other level. But I guess some good does come out of it… I’m sure a lot of die-hard Christians will enjoy some Minecraft now, too!
