Does God like video games?

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4:8-9

God doesn’t like anything that violates his nature. Most video games aren’t true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, even though they may be excellent and praiseworthy to your standards. Most games glorify violence (like Grand Theft Auto), while God encourages love and reconciliation.

A constant diet of death and blood reprogram our priorities and can distance us from the things of God. We must be careful with what we ingest into our minds.
