What.

When I can't think of something to blog about, one of the first places I go is reddit.  Not trying to steal content or anything, just looking for inspiration, perhaps something to comment on. Browsing through the Minecraft subreddit, I discovered this conversion guide for using Minecraft as a missionary tool.

I honestly can't tell whether it's a joke.  This looks like a real website, but it contains lines like this:

Also, the Endermen drop "enderpearls", which if you use on a pig will do absolutely nothing (a clear reference to Matthew 7:6).

Matthew 7:6 (NIV) says:

Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces.

If Minecraft has any sort of religious undertone, I can't really see it as being Christian.  (spoilers:) The end of the game is a weirdly obscure new-agey sort of spirituality, and the enchantment of weapons, tools and armor seems more like witchcraft of the sort that gets Christians up in arms about stuff like Harry Potter than anything resembling traditional Christian values.

This website seems like it's too completely put together to be fake, so I'm going to go out on a limb and say this looks like the sort of crazy confirmation bias that, honestly, most people do about some thing or another.  I know I've personally done it, about personal relationships and semi-subconscious desires, and it tends to work out poorly for me.

It's weird to see people who've gone that far off the deep end, but I think it's worth remembering that that sort of crazy ins't a categorical difference, it's just a matter of degrees.
