    Why is it that most video games characters are demonic in appearance? Not the kind of thing that is good for kids or adults. And then we wonder why there is so much violence in our society. Philippians 4:8 (NIV) Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.

    Each article I have read is very well written and to the point. I would also like to state, not only are the posts well written, but the lay-out of your web-site is excellent. It was easy to navigate from post to post and locate what I was looking for with ease. Keep up the excellent work you are doing, and I will return many times in the near future.
