From Belle Ringer at Salvation and Survival:
….there will still be those (and that includes the Christians who are advertising their Churches as Pokemon locations) who will say that “it is only a game”. But it is a role-playing game and involves fantasy and elements of magic and potions. That is definitely something the Bible warns us against!
Besides that, look at the thousands of hours people are spending on their phones playing Pokemon GO; (the app has been downloaded over 15,000,000 times in its first week in the U.S.). The word “idolatry” comes to mind. And here we are in the Last Days running around trying to capture mythical and virtual demons, when we should be focusing on our mission to save souls. Who do you think we’re pleasing — God or satan?
