There is no official definition for game, some call it a way to know how to attract women. It is a system of psychology to try to get women to be with you, and in some cases, stay with you. Try as you might to pin down a game advocate on a specific definition, they will tell you that isn’t what game means to them. Game has become a religion to some, and some of their priests are trying to sell it to Christians for use in finding a wife and staying in a biblical marriage. Game advocates for Christians elevate a man’s ability to charm women above the gospel and its message to husbands and wives.
22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
The wife is to submit to her husband because that is the Word of God, and she is to be obedient to it. Her obedience is shallow if it is simply because her husband games her. His attractiveness is irrelevant to her requirement to be obedient. Attractiveness is not even a good way to search for a wife. If her response to you is because of the things you do to be attractive, what will happen in the day you aren’t attractive? What will happen the day she runs into another man who is MORE attractive? Her obedience is not based on biblical belief, and so the marriage crumbles. This should be another post but this illustrates that romance, or love matches, is a terrible way of going about finding a spouse.
Resistance to change is good when the change being offered is poor. The problem is so few follow the truth or respect it. The downright ignorance and twisting of words in this post and thread shows people do not understand the problem, and those that might are entrenched in their new ideology.
Women are elevated as gods in both church and society, and the best hope given for picking and keeping women is not Scripture, but game according to this movement. Things have changed so much that we need a new gospel according to them, and we will provide it cover because it is “necessary” and hey some parts of it are like things said in the Bible. Game keeps us focused on women, all our attention one way or another is on them by it. Game may give you “some” control over women, but it is by your work, and not by biblical submission. Gamers are still placing women on pedestals with so little self awareness that they think they are not idolizing them. A biblical marriage would free up a men’s attention enough to concern himself with God’s business. They are men who care more about women than God.
What hope is being offered here? Not all Christians were born into the faith, endlessly feminized by misguided churchians. Some of us came to Christ because we experienced and knew that something was wrong with the world and themselves. We are zealous for Jesus and for living out the faith. We stumble much but we get back up. I do not defend the church as a whole, I think that churches mislead a lot of people. You are taking a big chance when you enter a church, sometimes you find a good pastor and men who are for the true faith, but often you find the folks who have another gospel instead. Gamers do the same, but try to tell you the poison is the clear living water. One poster even suggested game opponents were lost.
People who advocate any philosophy, any psychology, any set of rules besides the pure Gospel is selling you a new worldly gospel. Their allegiance by ignorance or by knowledge is not to God. They are backsliders if saved, and I say if because a lot of people truly aren’t. The high priests of game are not well meaning Christians who want to use it to save biblical marriage, but pick up artists and heathens who simply seek sex by any means they can procure.
You want to save biblical marriage? Then do so by the Bible. Even if you think you are standing at the same point as the Word of God, your feet are pointed to the heathen gamers, corruption shall be at the end of your walk.
