Games 2:14-18

I had an epiphany today on the nature of my struggle with Game’s usefulness: It’s a crisis of faith versus works.

The writers of Game with a Christian background (currently or no) seem to follow this cleft, too. The closer a person skews to Roman Catholic, the more likely the person takes the approach of : Work the system–practice and ritual will get you there. But even Baptists get baptized.

The closer you are to Protestantism, the more Game seems to be about Frame; inner-Game. The idea that successful Game is the fruit of internalizing it. Still, Roman Catholics should read their Bible.

I’m a Protestant at heart, so that probably influences my view.

  2. Cane, I must say you miss the mark on this one. You are working from a cariacature of Roman Catholicism. You, who have such a deeply developed view of the sacramental dimension of marital sex, are almost a closet Catholic. And I mean that as a compliment.

    I was working from a caricature of both. It isn’t so much what each side of the schism actually says or believes, but how they express themselves.

    I may end up RC. Blood is made in the marrow, but then gets pumped through the whole body.

  4. I like the reference here: linking it to 2 Corinthians and the growth of the Christ-fueled “inner nature.” Not sure about the Catholic/Protestant split there, but I haven’t examined who’s where, either.
