Hi, guys —

Some of my co-workers and friends talk a lot about playing Dungeons and Dragons.

I thought this game had satanic origins.

  • Am I mistaken?

Thanks,

Mike

Bob replied:

Mike,

Dungeons and Dragons, in itself, is not intrinsically evil. However, it is capable of being misused and may serve as a vehicle for the occult. I have not played the game and cannot comment as an insider, but I can evaluate the results of others, which clearly have demonstrated a link to the occult under certain conditions.

Any Christian should be mindful of any "game" that play-acts "divinizing" rituals. While many may be able to pretend without investing their will in a summons of spirits, others may become so enthusiastic that they literally summons spirits that could possess them or offer some harmful influence.

Peace,

Bob K.
