Addiction to Death: Games People Play

Continuing our mini-series on gaming addiction and what a parent or participant might need to know to avoid or identify the problem. Next week, we will have a replay of a testimony of a young man now free from gaming addiction.

Young Man Says He Was Delivered from Gaming Addiction

Today we have a rerun from our first summer, when a young man tells how he was delivered from gaming addiction. Amazingly, he was home educated, active in church, and yet slipped into a gaming addiction. This is happening right under our eyes and we don’t see. Eventually he did. And he shares his story.

We now know that not only can gaming be an addiction, but often it is de-sensitizing young men to killing. In fact, they are practicing killing over and over. Even the fast rides are addicting them to adrenaline.

This is an ever more serious problem, as there are more games, more realistic games, and more reason to stay inside. Please listen. Please share.

Feel free to respond with your own experiences.
