LDS Church warns against dangers of MMORPGs
If you are a Mormon, or have ever been one, you know full well the Church is not a live and let live organization. They are involved in every aspect of your life, from dictating what kind of food you put in your mouth, to the choice of underwear. In this article, the Church warns of the dangers of MMORPGs, which they consider to be an idle waste of time.
“One of the ways Satan lessens your effectiveness and weakens your spiritual strength is by encouraging you to spend large blocks of your time doing things that matter very little. I speak of such things as sitting for hours on end watching television or videos, playing video games night in and night out, surfing the Internet, or devoting huge blocks of time to sports, games, or other recreational activities.”
If the Church had it their way, you would be spending your time doing something more “useful”, like praying, thinking about Jesus, or reading the joke they call The Book of Mormon. I could tell you that the real waste of time is bothering to talk to your invisible friend all day instead of learning about the world around you, but who the fuck am I to judge what the hell you do? At the end of the day, anything could be considered a waste of time. So long as it makes you happy and doesn’t hurt anyone else, I really don’t see the harm
Now there will always be people who abuse a good thing, and that’s just a fact of life. You can’t save people from themselves, but like all addictions, people will eventually get bored and try something else. Let’s just hope they don’t turn to a religion that thinks Native Americans descended from the Jews. What a stupid waste of time that is!
