Is it possible!?!?

Thanks for doing the seemingly impossible and not making Christian entertainment cheesy. Too many Christians are afraid to use the fun gifts that God has given us, like video games, to show that God is fun and not a boring God. Love the Godly advice you give (especially the what your reading segment) and really love that this is equally entertaining me and challenging me in my walk with God. Would love to play some games with you guys one day and hope to see the podcast grow for the glory of God!

Wow!!

I am so thankful I stumbled across this podcast. Growing up video games always was portrayed in Christian circles as evil and a waste of time. It’s so refreshing to see doctrinally sound people talking about video games from a Christian perspective. So thankful for you guys and what you do. Also the Discord is so awesome!! Keep doing what you are doing!! Grace and peace.

Gaming Through the Lens Of the Gospel

I have been a fan of the show for a few months now and I can’t get enough. I have back tracked to older episodes and enjoy the discussions and recommendations given by the hosts. Logan and Adam do a great job detailing games but they also give a section called, “What have you been reading?” This section often times turns into a type of devotional encouragement to the listeners with emphasis on prayer, ministry, and sanctification. I’ve picked up several games just because of their recommendations and I haven’t been disappointed. I will continue to follow the show as the hosts continue to follow the Father and produce excellent content! GG and amen.
