There is a popular board game that I have been told, is satanic in its nature. It is called “Dungeons and Dragons.” Here is what one paper, The Baptist Pillar, which calls itself “Canada’s Only TRUE Baptist Paper,” had this to say about the “game.”
“After an exhaustive research one commission, the Christian Life Ministries, tells the naked truth through these incisive comments: ‘Dungeons & Dragons, instead of a game is a teaching on demonology, witchcraft, voodoo, murder, rape, blasphemy, suicide, assassination, insanity, sex perversion, homosexuality, prostitution, Satan-worship, gambling, Jungian psychology, barbarism, cannibalism, sadism, desecration, demon summoning, necromancy, divination, and many more teachings, brought to you in living color direct from the pit of hell.’ Terrific words! Unbelievable, do you say? I thought so, too, until I made a study of these anti-Christ systems. It is as if Satan has waited until now to release his most damning assault against the human race, making the children and young people the prime target.”
Never having even seen the game, I do not feel qualified to judge its content. However, I do believe there is some irony in the name itself. The Bible speaks of the Dragon being cast into a dungeon called the “bottomless pit,” and being bound there for 1000 years (also known as the Millennium - Rev. 20:1-3). He is freed for a short time, only to be defeated by “fire (which) came down from God out of heaven” (Rev. 20:7-10).
In the Book of Revelation, there are twelve verses which refer to the Dragon (12:3, 4, 7, 9, 13, 16, 17; 13:2, 4, 11; 16:13; 20:2). Two present him as also being known as “that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan,” (12:9), and “that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan” (20:2).
He is described as being red, having seven crowned heads, and having ten horns (12:3). He is said to have a tail with which he “drew the third part of the stars of heaven,” who fight with Michael, the archangel; losing, they are cast down to the earth (12:3-4, 7-9). Angered by his expulsion, he attacks the pregnant woman (Israel), but fails to kill her Child, Jesus, who is whisked off to His throne in heaven (12:1-2, 4-6).
For three and a half years, he empowers the Beast (Antichrist) to persecute Israel (12:13 – 13:10). Another Beast (the False Prophet), speaking the same message as the Dragon, serves as the Beast’s enforcer in his war on Israel (13:11-18). The forty-two months are described as ending with the Second Coming of Christ, and the Antichrist, with the False Prophet, being cast into the Lake of Fire (19:20). As I mentioned earlier, there is a gap between the Antichrist and False Prophet being cast into the Lake of Fire, and when the Dragon joins them. It is 1000 years plus a “little season,” whatever that is (19:20; 20:3, 7-10).
Messing with the game, Dungeons and Dragons, may affect one’s life.
Messing with the Dragon destined for “the dungeon,” may affect one’s eternity!
