SNAPSHOTS FROM VIDEO GAMES.......







Violent video games can:

· Lead to antisocial behavior in children
· Lead to poor academic performance
· Lead to delinquency
· Reinforce racist or sexist stereotypes
· Desensitize children to violent acts
· Teach children that using violence is an appropriate way to solve problems
· Allow players to become emotionally involved with their character and take joy in violence
· Allow players to commit violent acts
· Allow players to receive constant and immediate reinforcement for aggressive
performance, either visual or auditory stimulation
· Act as a training ground to learn aggressive behavior

I'm 22 and I'd have a hard time sleeping after playing a game of that sickness!!

I know this is a grotesque post but my point exactly is..........
"IT IS GROTESQUE!!"

You should thank God big time in prayer for being raised in a home (Church) that protected you from such disgusting visuals like those Star.
How can someone have a wholesome, tender, restorative nature; participating in a steady diet of such rot as that.
I thank God for my Pastor who taught us right!!!

I just reas on Sis Elms blog about their childrens revival. What a stark difference, the images seen there of children still so beautiful and innocent, laughing and having fun, singing and worshipping God to the images seen here. I am so glad we live like we do!!

Oh my sweet Jesus! thats wretched! I'm never playing Zelda again.
I do agree, video games with gore and strong violence and language have the ability to be desensitizing.

Isn't it scary what they come out with nowadays? Even scarier is that parents allow their children to see this everyday, and become desensitized to it. I pray always God continues to strengthen me as a mom, and as a family to stay close to Him, and protect our babies from as much as we can!
