I used to have this [1] and I'm trying to find the company that made "Conflict in Jerusalem" so I can add it to the list.

We should categorize all these games by the system they are played on, and sources should be found for all of this

Where's C&C[edit]

Where is command and conquer it's kind of christian numerous quotes from the bible and even characters from the game are bases on biblical peaple Kane, Seth for exampel Jamhaw 16:24, 25 January 2007 (UTC)jamhaw

Interesting question though, does this article just list games produced by companys with ties to christian organizations or should it also list games that have the bible as a theme in them? I don't think it matters either way but would help to classify it for the article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 137.186.121.136 (talk) 08:41, 29 October 2007 (UTC)

Recommend that every producer add their URL to games that are still available. Also, there are numerous titles NOT listed on the GAMES list. I've not listed about 20 of our titles so as not to appear to dominate the list. Many of those titles were created by others, and think the protocol should be that the original developer CREATE the listing and include their own URL even though some of us who also carry it could post the listing. What do you think? <>< neil

Notability[edit]

I fail to see why this qualifies as an article or a category given that quality that is being used to place games in this category is purely thier content rather than what is traditionally used to define a games genre. Furthermore if this were category of content it would be much better served as religious video games - i cannot see any reason why Christianity or any other religion should have a category of games that feature it in its content. For that matter a very large number of games include some facet of Christianity yet they are not featured here - i am going to judge this as by Christian games the category really means video games for purely Christian propaganda purposes and judging just off the titles of these games targeted at children which i find personally disgusting. I suggest that this article be merged into another category or given that the majority of the games do not have thier own articles be deleted in its entirety.Apple-I-mage (talk) 11:14, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

I agree, not even all of these are Christian video games per se, some are Jewish video games! The article should be renamed to 'Religious video games' to preserve neutrality and not to show bias towards Jewish culture. For that seems to be religious racism. --Masterius (talk) 20:29, 11 February 2009 (UTC)

"Religious racism"? How silly. Anyway, there's nothing wrong with this article - just because some of you may find these games disgusting or insignificant doesn't mean they don't deserve a Wikipedia page about them. Please keep any religious biases to yourself. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.56.0.35 (talk) 19:01, 7 April 2011 (UTC)

Definition is vague[edit]

I'm sure this will ruffle feathers but "Christianity", "Christian", originate with the teachings of the "Christ". Without promoting "Christ" and/or His teachings, isn't it just a "Religious" game? See this definition for example, <http://www.uvlist.net/groups/info/mormon>. Hence Doom by that definition, is not a Mormon game simple because Sandy Peterson is a Mormon and the game involves fighting evil.

Could somebody please fix the "Cathecumen" link?[edit]

The real link to the game is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catechumen_(video_game) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.74.109.234 (talk) 00:00, 30 August 2013 (UTC)
