Howdy! My name is Luke Strain and I am an adult Christian Gamer. I was inspired to start this blog a long time ago by one bible verse, and just now got enough outside motivation to begin.
"For since the creation of the world, His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made..." Romans 1:20

God reveals himself through everything in this world. Through the trees, the mountains, and even modern media. Video Games are no exception. I learn a lot about life as a Christian through video games. This blog is about sharing these lessons that I have learned with my fellow Christians, and gamers. I AM NOT trying to find the "true meaning" of these games, but instead use examples from video games to prove points, and teach about God.

But my aspirations for this blog go even beyond the posting of devotionals every once and a while...

Most of the Christians that I interact with through video games or online forums are adolescents whose faith is really based on the influence of their cool hip youth pastor and have not made their own yet. Which is great, truly. I was there once too. But now I have grown. Done some soul searching. Asked myself hard questions and found answers myself (well, God helped too I guess). I am now a stronger Christian than I ever was. Unfortunately, the place that God has lead me to is quite unique. My friends who were Christians and gamers are now Christians or gamers. Sure my christian friends may play video games, but they do not have a passion for games as I do. And yes some of my gamer friends are still Christians, but they do not have a burning desire to live their entire lives glorifying God as I do. Very few of my peers have both a passion for games, and a burning love for God as I do.

Yet James 5:16 tells us to "Confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed," establishing a community with one another. We are not meant to go through life alone.  Instead we are meant to pursue God's will in fellowship with one another, glorifying God in whatever social group we fall.

That is what this blog is meant to be, a unifying place for Christians, Gamers, and Christian Gamers alike to find fellowship, and glorify God. I don't want this to be just a place for devotionals, but a unifying community for Christians and Gamers everywhere.

"So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God's household, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone" Ephesians 2:19-20


  1. Really great idea! It's cool how you want God to be a part of every aspect of your life. Even though I'm not really a gamer, I hope you continue with this blog because this may help encourage someone.

  2. This is a really neat idea! I don't know that I've met someone with the desire to bring gaming and faith together, what a cool concept! As an older sister to younger brothers that like to play video games, I am greatly encouraged to see you can connect the two! Way to go!
