Chess is alright, but I prefer Freecell.

Re: Games, Books & Entertainment

I'm sorry, I've been really busy. I work graveyard and things just get away from me.

It's just stuff I've been into all my life. Hard to give up who you were, you know?
I've always been into fantasy and science fiction stuff and I'm trying to figure out where the line is.
The word says that the imagination of man's heart is wicked, so should I just give up all forms of fictional story driven entertainment since it's all just the imaginations of men?
I mean, I love these stories, but they're part of the world the God says not too love, right?

I bet if you get in Holy Ghost, you'll find your answer. All things may be lawful, but not all things are expedient. Pray, and pray until you get an answer.

Take up your execution stake, and follow Jesus.
