The Warhammer Game(s)-The Pulling Down of Dark Powers

by Paul Villanueva The Warhammer game comes in a variety of flavors. It can simultaneously be played online with multiple players; it can be purchased as a tabletop board game, and engaged through role-playing. No matter how the game is played, it is totally demonic and unacceptable for any Christ-follower to play it or allow their children to play it.

Warhammer is rated "T for teen" because it contains mild blood, suggestive themes, has the use of alcohol, has the use of tobacco, and is violent. Unfortunately, these ratings do not include the use of the occult, witchcraft, spell-casting, and demonic worship. They should.

In the game Warhammer, players assemble their army of creature soldiers by painting them and collecting them for their magic powers in war. The game is played in a fictional universe far into the future, and is a fantasy game. There are many "races" or "factions" of creatures in this mythical universe, which are all based on demons. For a list of some of the demon characters, please see the following link.

Daemons or demons are just one of the races contained in the Warhammer game. There are many different types of demon warriors, which can be painted and assembled as soldiers. They are malevolent spirits born out of a mythical realm named Chaos or Hell. The Daemons have magical energy to cast spells and do sorcery, and can become strong "Chaos gods." One such Daemon is "Khorne," the blood god. He is the god of war and violence.

Some of the other races in this fantasy universe of war are,

1. Orcs or Goblins. The Goblins are a cunning race, which are war-like killing creatures.

2. Eldar or Elf. The Eldar have psychic powers and can perceive into the future by the use of magic, sorcery, and witchcraft.

3. Necrons or the Un-Dead. They are skeletal robotic humanoid monsters that are used as warriors.

The list of satanic creature soldiers in this game is long, and this account is but a summary to reveal the basic evil nature of this game. In Mark 16:17, Jesus states that His followers will cast out demons, not play war games with them. Apostle Paul wrote to the Corinthian church in 1Corinthians 10:20 that they should not become sharers in demons. Additionally, in verse 21 he declared, "You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons."

It should be obvious that the Christian should have no connection in any way, shape, or form to the Warhammer game(s). The painting and personalizing of demonic figurines for bloodshed is demon worship. Participation in this game will invite very real spirits into the lives of every player.
