Role-Playing Games (RPG)

Role-playing games are fantasy games that contains elements such as: elves, dwarfs, gnomes, giants, dragons, griffons, sea serpents, centaurs, and other mythical creatures.

Fantasy RPG games are inspired by Greek, Roman, Norse, Celtic, and other European mythology. Most RPG games involve some sort of magic (magical weapons, wizards, spells, etc.).

Let’s define mythology:  A collection of myths, especially one belonging to a particular religious or cultural tradition.

Let’s also define a wizard:  A man who has magical powers, especially in legends and fairy tales.

Synonyms: sorcerer, warlock, magus, (black) magician, necromancer, enchanter; archaic mage

Most RPG games I have come across have the player use magic in the game for various reasons. Role-Playing games praise and promote witchcraft, which the Bible condemns as a wicked practice.

Deuteronomy 18:9-12 (ESV)

“When you come into the land that the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not learn to follow the abominable practices of those nations. There shall not be found among you anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering, anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer or a charmer or a medium or a necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord. And because of these abominations the Lord your God is driving them out before you.”


RPG games can be dangerous to the point where you start to believe you really are the character you’re playing.  You can make better use of your time doing something in the “real-world”, instead of a made-up fantasy world that promotes evil and godlessness.
