The New York Times reports that a church has used a violent video game to recruit youth. It is a first-person shooter game called Halo. (First-person shooter simulations are used by the military to train soldiers to kill. See the book, Stop Teaching Our Kids to Kill.) This incensed me, and I emailed the youth pastor. He claims they have stopped using the game. Why it was ever brought into the church is the question. One cannot win the world to Christ through worldiness (Romans 12:1-2; 1 John 2:15-17; Luke 16:15).
