But seriously, I’m in 2 minds about fantasy role-playing. I spent years of my life in D&D (I’m a purist – AD&D didn’t do it for me) and don’t think that I was affected at all. Having said that I think I had a firm grip on reality.
But can these things really be a conduit to something evil? I know that some people get into the occult through stuff like this but I’ve always thought that Satan was a bit more subtle. We spend our time looking out for overt Demonic Worship as though he’s got a sign outside a building saying “come worship Satan here, every Friday evening” but fail to spot his more subtle side-attack – all the things that consume our lives.
So I’m not completely anti-D&D, in fact I think it can be quite helpful for children to expand their imagination. However, when my child grows up I may come to a different view.
What do you all think? Especially the dads and mums….
