Yes. Christians can play video games.
Back in 2015, we got tired of reading all the articles about how Christians shouldn’t play video games. We’ve heard all the arguments and seen all the misappropriated Bible verses about “growing up” and “games being for children”. We, however, believe that video games are a gift of God. So, how do we glorify God in it?
Enter The Reformed Gamers.
Logan is a teacher/educator that loves God and has been gaming since he was a newborn. His desire is for Christians and non-Christians alike to enjoy gaming to a higher level than just the surface. Every other week, we release a new episode centered around discussing a specific video game or gaming news topic from a Biblical worldview. For example, ever consider how the 2018 game, God of War, has a positive view of masculinity that’s close to the Bible? No? Well, you have now.
TRG also aims to bring guests on that are doing something different in the gaming space. Whether it’s Colin Moriarty’s more conservative/populist perspective, Jon Harrison’s methods of using gaming mechanics for leadership skills or even Charles Watson’s tool that helps gamers stay fiscally minded on their backlog, we aim to bring new perspectives to you, the listener, on just what is going on in the world of gaming and how these individuals are making the world a better place.
