Halo 3 and Christians
By Eric Barger
I haven't mentioned much about video games in recent days. However, since the new Microsoft game, Halo 3, has become the rage of gamers, grossing over $300 million in just the first week of its release, I thought a few words were in order.
I am prompted to speak up here due to some email enquires we've received and because of the fact that it has been reported that churches - many churches - are using Halo 3 to attract teens. The New York Times reported "that hundreds of pastors [are] desperate to reach young congregants" and have turned to Halo 3 as a recruiting tool.
