God on World of Warcraft

Here is a brief conversation from general chat in WoW today. I logged in to see what the reaction to a question running around in my head would be.

Dan: Is it possible to find God in the wow community?
Response 1: unlikely.
Response 2: i think u can.
Response 3: im listening
Dan: its just a simple question from a youth pastor setting at his desk who loves playing wow and the community a simple game has created.
Responce: i believe you find god by praying. not much of that goes on in this game. just killing and leveling mostly.
Dan: ROFL
Response 1: : )
Dan: It’s still people though
Response 3: Aye, true.

  1. this reminds of me of the Halo at church debate we were involved with once

  2. Find God in WOW is like finding needle in the sea. Of course, God wouldn’t be killing and leveling.

  3. Dude, you enjoy that World of Warcraft, don’t you?!

  4. Can you imagine the possibilities of doing ministry in this community? Some friends here and I have been praying about the idea of just that, ministering to the WoW community on one server and then if God allows it to move it to other servers. I’m not talking about just creating a safe haven for Christians who want to play wow, Im talking about actually trying to minister to the spiritual needs of the real people who play in this virtual world, literally getting our hands dirty for Jesus in a place that at times can be very hostile toward Christians and Christians guilds.We desire to play alongside them, praying for them as we join them in party groups and raid groups. Letting them know that we like them enjoy this game and allowing God to move among us and hope that he will allow that to overflow into the game.

  5. Good point, Dan. There’s a lot of ministry to be done in a lot of places, and the cyber world is CERTAINLY one of them. Good thinking, on your part!
