Questions regarding video games

I have been playing video games since I was a child and have never had an issue. However, after the LORD called me and have been born again I've been having some thoughts about the games I play. In particular video games including content such as summoning, spirits , magic etc. I understand these are just video games and not real, however it seems like everytime I go to play a game including this kind of content I seem to have a hard time playing. Its like I know it's only a video game but when I play it it's as If a feeling of guilt or something is telling me it's wrong. If i wouldnt do it in real life why would I do it in a game? Also it's not all games with magic or spirits just certain games where it feels like less of a video game in the way its portrayed and presented. I had no issues playing these games before being born again but now it's different. I understand scripture says it's possible for one brother to be able to do something that another brother considers not good. (1Corinthians 8) Is it possible that I am having an issue which another brother may not be having with the same games? Or is it a sin either way? Thank you for you responses and input and God bless.

Hi Vitamin J! Welcome here. I believe you may be feeling the conviction of the Holy Spirit not to play those types of games. He is wanting to guide us into all truth and into a deeper walk with Him, and this may include leaving things behind which formerly we had no problem with or did not feel convicted over. While games are "just games" yet as we are in an alternate reality while playing games it may desensitize us to the real thing.

Thanks for sharing and asking, it makes me believe that you honestly want God's will in your life! Wishing you blessings as you continue to follow Him!

Thank you for your reply. I've been praying for the LORD to guide me on this matter as for some it may be nothing but for myself it is really the only hobby I have. The LORD has guided me and given me grace that I cannot afford and so much more it's important that I seek His understanding doing and not my own. I appreciate your input very much and it's good to know there are forums such as these.

@Vitamin J

So happy to here you are born again !!! brings joy to my heart !! yeap as brother Chad said I to believe it is the Holly Spirit telling you to stop. Everything we put in our minds has a direct effect on our spirit. I can not watch the same tv programs I once loved to watch.

God bless you !!
