Virtual Reality and Faith
Now this is very intriguing, definitely worth some more reflection. But I’ll just put it out there:
When the Paris terror attacks occurred a few weeks ago, someone took a screenshot of an online role playing game. Where were the players? In the virtual cathedral paying their respects to the victims of a tragedy that happened in real life.
Roleplayers of Argent Dawn EU have gathered in the Cathedral to pay respects to Paris instead of RPing tonight. pic.twitter.com/PuZ5LXg0t6

What does this say about our human longings both in the real world as well as in virtual worlds?
Does this point to a deeper reality that transcends what we experience as “reality”?
I have more questions than answers, but thanks to the above twitter user for bringing it up and please continue to both pray for and take action in any way possible that God’s grace would move us all towards peace and justice and away from oppression and terror.
