This "Redemption: City of Bondage" has a sinful title, considering that the Bible criticises bondage in all its forms. I quote Exodus 1:13-14; "And the Egyptians made the children of Israel to serve with rigour: And they made their lives bitter with hard bondage, in morter, and in brick, and in all manner of service in the field: all their service, wherein they made them serve, was with rigour."
I find it very disturbing that a minister would recommend what is clearly a violent and unsuitable game to a young man who is so obviously concerned about the salvation of his soul.

I have to disagree with the statement that playing yugioh will cause people to get mixed up with the occult. That is not true there is no way to prove that. I am a born again beleiver yet I watch harry potter and play yugioh. Yet I know that magic and monsters do not exist. I don't even believe people can be possessed by evil spirits. I think that as long as you know it is all fake and don't actually practice magic than you should be fine. That is my opinion.

Don't be silly... It's obviously saving the city from bondage... WOW, think a little more?
The game looks really good. Better than Yu-Gi-Oh, and I have played Yu-Gi-Oh many times and other card games.

You stated that instead of YuGiOh one could play Redemption ccg. tell me what the difference is. Do you not use your cords against your opponents cards. One character places a hero and the opponent places an evil character. Then you have them battle. This is the same concept your cards in battle your opponents cards. If the only difference is that one uses biblical characters and the other doesn't is a weak argument. If the fundamental aim is to use your cards to beat your opponents cards then it doesn't matter what the names of the cards are. In YuGiOh you play against your opponent, not your cards versus your opponent's cards. by suggesting that John play redemption and not YuGiOh you have made a double standard and therefore made your own argument invalid.
My advice John would be to ask God through prayer if the game is evil and if he doesn't want you playing it. try out redemption, and if you like or enjoy YuGiOh more then play that.
Because YuGiOh is a game it is morally neutral. it is how you use it. if someone were to say football is ungodly because there is violence is that the truth or is it a question of Worldviews and intent.
