This is whack

ok.. I get the part about people making servers, but calling Creepers walking dicks? no. Making children not do the American way? The American way is lazy. you are basically saying: "Kids should just sit around all day and do nothing instead of doing work.

Minecraft is not based on reality it is based on the passed just with zombies and skeletons and exploding creatures.

Seriously, I'm a Christian, but I still do not approve of the message.

You must have read this, haven't you? Or why revive it with a post clearly indicating you have not got the satire part?

I skimmed over the first section of this and then down through the headings and that was it. I couldn't be bothered reading ridiculous stuff like this. For me at least, if that was an attempt at humor it falls flat. If not, well I am glad I didn't waste too much time on it.

Have you read the Bible!?!?!? There is some love in there, but there is a whole lot more hate and violence. I would say the central message of the Bible is "God has really low self esteem and needs his ego stroked continuously, which we must do for him or he will burn us in a lake of fire for eternity."

EDIT: Ugg, just saw that this is a 2 year old thread...shoot me now. Exit stage left.

If his theory was right, then your friend would be punished with some awful disease. For his presumptions to know God's will, and for his hatred against his neighbour Christopher Reeve.

On the other hand, not all people are Christians who call themselves Christians or even believe they are Christians. Your ex-friend clearly isn't.

But to shamelessly attack Minecraft like that- despicable!

Not exactly. One difference is that nowhere in the Book of Jobs does it state that "Steve loves you."

This is the internet. I'm not surprised by anything anymore. I've come across some serious whackos in my time and some i wouldnt even let out of a padded room, not to mention let loose on the world wide web. Whatever we may think, the horrible fact remains, however unlikely, he could be serious.

I'll repeat what I said on the last page.

It's Landover Baptist. They're a parody/troll site that leans heavily on Poe's Law to stir people up.

I wonder if this ministry is related to the Florida nutball minister who tried to make a gigantic bonfire from 2,000 kerosene-soaked Korans?

I kinda doubt it. Landover usually sticks to internet trolling, and probably wouldn't do anything to directly piss off a whole load of people to the point of potential violence.

Is this thread some kind of joke ?

If not it should be in the PRSI forums.
