Integrity Gamer’s purpose is two-fold:
To present a genuine Christian perspective in gaming
We want to offer reviews, opinions, and gameplay videos that represent a Christian view in today’s Media Marketplace. We want to make our voice heard and to be properly represented in gaming and in today’s media-culture.
To shine the light and love of Jesus on gamers everywhere
People game for many different reasons. When I was growing up gaming for most was a fun past-time, hobby and family activity. Today however, it’s very plain to see that more and more people are drawn to gaming as a way of escape from reality, responsibility, and the problems they face in their day-to-day lives.
Gaming addiction is real and it’s effects are felt across broken relationships, ruined marriages, neglected children and in some cases death. One only needs to look at the ‘Console Wars’ to find that many gamers have even associated their gaming platform of choice with their identity and sense of self-worth. The percentage of gamers that are addicted and in bondage to pornography (internet or otherwise) is also very alarming.
Is gaming then inherently evil and the root cause of so much misfortune? No. But like anything else that takes the rightful place that God should have in our lives, it most certainly will become a stumbling block in every area of life.
We want to reach these gamers in gaming, right where they’re at! In the very midst of their struggles and escape to present them with a real hope, love, freedom, and forgiveness that is only found in Jesus. Whether it be through faith-based articles on the the website, our gameplay videos, our website forum, or even our official Playstation Community where we gather almost nightly to encourage, pray, and spread God’s love to each other and others.
The bottom line is that there is a real and tangible need for ministry within gaming and the field of gaming is ripe for harvest. Since the time we have begun we’ve seen God move within the medium of gaming! We’ve seen lives changed, people set free from the chains of pornography addiction and even come to the accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior! It’s amazing to see God change lives like only He can, and we’re blessed to be a part of it!
