I would love to start a Christian Linkshell if anybody is interested. If I can get 20 people showing interesting I would be more than happy to get it going. Just respond on here or send me a /tell to Susejnihtaif :D God Bless and Good Night!
ok well its been a while since i have bothered to post on here because i really wanted to see what the market was for a christian linkshell but unfortunately it seems that the majority of the people that have an opinion about it dont want anything to do with it which i find odd to be quite honest with you. Many of you have already made up your mind or have your own opinions about why i was interested in forming a christian linkshell without actually asking the question. So i will go ahead and clarify it so the focus on this forum can get back to the original intention and that is if there is enough christians that are in siren or interested in coming to siren to form a christian linkshell so here are some points and reasons i want to point out and clarify so i would appreciate it if you would bother to ask questions before flaming any other poster on this forum thank you :D
1: the intention of a Christian LS is not to preach any religious views on any other person christian or otherwise.
2: the intention of a Christian LS is not to Spam any religious views in any way size shape or form on any other person christian or otherwise.
3: the intention of a Christian LS is not a way to add to the bigotry through race *** or religion or any other size shape or form.
4: a christian LS doesnt have prerequisites to join other than being respectful of the beliefs of the other members of the LS.
This being said christians and non christians alike are more than welcome to join in fact it is encouraged. This being said words of intolerance words of hate towards Christians wont be tolerated.
5: Christians come from all walks of life all sizes shapes colors backgrounds male female etc etc. We are not perfect we are no different no better and no worse than any other person on the planet. No christian that understands the Word of God would think otherwise. With that being said the creation of a Christian Linkshell is not to designate a difference in standing or class within the game or the real world.
6: I almost didnt write this one because it seems like common sense to me but considering how many posts brought this up i really had no choice. Christians play video games. Yes, I know its a shock but they really do. Just because there are monsters and demons people raising others from the dead magic divination etc etc that does not mean in any way that we are promoting that into our beliefs therefore we are not being hypocrytical of our beliefs by playing video games. The fact is we live in a world of sin. That doesnt mean we promote or love that either :)
7: The purpose of creating a christian linkshell is beneficial to all not just christians and i think that is something that i should be have brought up in my original post in fact with stating that i think i will copy and paste this on my original thread as well. But this is what it boils down to and i am not preaching here this is just a fact that all christians will understand: To Love is To Give. in simpler terms we enjoy helping others giving our expertise our time our money etc. There is no reason we cant apply this in game as well. This already occurs to a degree with the mentor option and there are certainly christians and non christians alike that go out of there way to help others through out the game and to all of you Thanks alot!! But the fact is there is really no organized group of people or linkshell etc for people to go to for assistance and we all know that people expect christians to act differently an idea that is many times misconstrued but nevertheless we have different expectations of how we should live our lives. This may only be a game but we certainly interact with others and we can touch others lives. Christianity isnt about preaching its about living as we are commanded :) we can do that living without being a bible thumper!
I hope sincerely that this clears up any doubts of what it is that i am very much interested in doing here btw for all of you that have sent pms about this i apologize i wrote my name wrote if you want to send me a message in game please send to Susejnihtaif NOT susejnithaif! read that carefully :P or if you prefer which this would be easier anyway send me an email to email@example.com and i will keep you posted thank you all very much for your input take care and god bless
