I’m a VERY infrequent poster on this forum but I have a few things I wanted to get some opinions on. I have a friend that I’ve known for 7-8 years, and over the years we’ve been friends and shared things in common such as video games. Over the last 2 years, I’ve grown in my spiritual life to where I’ve embraced my spiritual life as a blessing, not a burden. As a result, I’ve changed a lot from where I used to be. One of the things my friend and I used to play was the Yugioh card game. I played it frequently in 2008, but very infrequently from 2009 to most recently. I had another friend tell me that the game is demonic but I never really believed him or took him seriously until about a week and a half ago when I last played. There’s cards in there that contain any of the following words: Red Dragon, hex, spell, curse, charm, or demon, plus the pictures on some of the cards are very suggestive when it comes to monsters/demons. I looked up in Scripture to back this up and I found Deuteronomy 8:10-11, plus the book of Revelation mentions the Red Dragon during the apocalypse.
My take on the game is that it not only is demonic based on my above description, but it also promotes greed. Many people, myself included, have attempted to take advantage of young children who have rare/high-valued cards because they have very little, if any, knowledge about the price of the cards. Plus, at higher-scale tournaments, people get their cards stolen, which not only violates one of the 10 Commandments, but also promotes one of the seven capital sins in greed.
I appreciate any thoughts/comments/violent reactions on this subject. I respect whatever your opinion may be, and I thank you all in advance for taking time to read and respond to this post.
