Hello all, this is my first post to these here message boards. My son bought me one of these crazy machines with the keyboard and the mouse for my birthday back in April and I have been getting pretty good and the internets and the clicking and what not. So anyways, onto my main point. My grandson is fourteen years old and his birthday is coming up in a month and he told me he wants me to buy him Dungeons and Dragons books so that he can play this game with his friends. Now to be honest I'm really torn up about this and I need some advice. I have been praying to the Lord and I think he is telling me to seek out the advice of those perhaps more wise and knowledgeable than me. I have heard many terrible things about this game, that it teaches the youngins to worship satan and perform rituals and what not. And I am worried about the safety of my grandson. If I recall correctly, I remember some fella dying in the sewers somewheres years ago because he was trying to act out the Dungeons and Dragons like it was his real life. Now on the other hand, my grandson gives me an entirely different argument. He's telling me that yes, there are options in this game to be bad, evil, etc. But that the most important thing to take note of is that it is a choice. He tells me that him and his little fellas that he's friends with get to choose if they are good or evil, and when they play they choose to be good heroes or whatever, saving innocents and fighting bad guys or what not. I am still very concerned about this Dungeons and Dragons, because even if thats the way he says he's gonna play it, the temptation is still there to turn towards the other side and be negatively influenced by Satan. I need help! My grandson is a good kid. He prays to the Lord daily and generally treats everyone the way God would want him to. Am I overreacting in thinking I need to prevent him and his little friends from playing this Dungeons and Dragons? Please provide me with some advice! Thank you for your time and patience in reading this.
