Our brothers in Christ and friends over at Relevant Gaming recently featured Video Games and the Bible as part of their initiative to highlight a worthy site every month. A few quotes:
“Whenever I find a new Christian gaming site, I approach with caution. You just don’t know what people believe and sometimes it’s hard to tell if they’re speaking the truth with just a courtesy browse of their site. So when Nelson from VGAB approached me about becoming one of our featured gamers for 2015 you can understand my caution.

“Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.” (John 17 20-23)
