“Zombie Apocalypse”

Categories: GRAB BAG
If I play a video game that is all about walking around and killing zombies, is this considered a sin?

Sincerely,
BRAINS!!!

Dear BRAINS,

Video games are not inherently wrong, but it is also important that christians be careful what they put into their minds.  Php 4:8 tells us that we should dwell and meditate on wholesome and pure things.  1 Cor 15:33 says that if we keep the wrong company, we will eventually be corrupted by their influence.  These principles need to be considered when we choose television shows, movies, video games, and other forms of entertainment.  Violence in video games isn’t necessarily wrong – even the Bible has some pretty violent scenes in it, but if we find ourselves consumed by grisly, violent, and morbid entertainment… there is a problem.
