I dont know, but I think that, as Christians, we already have faith and it's not like we necessarily believe in those things.

As humans much of what we believe (or all in some people's case) is what we see and know to be true. There is a spiritual realm in this world that we know next to nothing about and I think that a lot of what we dont know we try to explain through various means. But I think that Bleach and Death Note and anime like that are more for entertainment. I think that entertainment uses our imagination, a God given gift, and it does not harm to our faith if we guard ourselves so I don't think that he minds.

Good question. I think that as long as we're strong in our faith it's fine. As long as we know that these things are false we should be fine. Of course, I may be wrong , but we'll never know until we see God face-to-face. Just keep readin' the Bible and believin' in Him with all ya' have.

Its Fine...Just Dont get engrossed in it. like wad RivrStyx, we already have faith, we should not believe in death-gods or wadever crap.
Though u may see Demons or Angels in animes, im nt telling u angels and demons dun exists. But i think the way animes make demons and angels...are pretty bad...

I used to get so absorbed in animes and dramas that I watched them whenever I had the chance but recently I've realized that all I'm doing is wasting my time...especially the time i have to spend in God's presence ~_~...and maybe study

I know it's really hard not to give importance to awesome animes (like Bleach XD)...but I'm trying to stay away from animes that i know will keep me from God's presence...anything like hentai, too much importance given to demons/angels (especially scary horror animes), anything that gives me the slightest inclination that God wouldn't be pleased with, I try to stay far away from...but I promise that it's not easy...but we can at least give God our best

Same here and now I find that since I became a mod. I am doing less Anime watching but, more well for lack of better word, Gods work here on BA. I know I have told most of you that in person I am not a very strong witness for Jesus. But, here all the things I have learn in my life. Seem to come forth as ways to help others. AND I WANT TO DO MORE

It's interesting that you should ask because... I've really been praying about this. Whether it's ok to watch anime that have stuff in it that God might... no, DOES not like. This is the conclusion I came to: I havn't come to one yet. *smiles* I really can't say, but AbaraiRukia, I totally admire what you are doing... by taking out Bleach and other animes that are not honoring to God. I havn't been able to do that yet... But I guess in some ways... it's different for everyone. Now, there are some like Monster that I don't believe are good for any Christian and any ones that are horror or even ones that blatantly go against our beliefs. So I've found, that for me, God is helping me to be able to watch animes and not focus on them or dwell on them while I'm focusing and dwelling on God's word and his will for me more than anything right now.. including friends! So honestly, it's as the Lord leads. For A.R. it might be to cut it out completely. For others it might be to just watch a few (especially if you are caught up and have to wait a week for the next one). I guess one major thing is that if it's keeping you from spending time with God every day, take it out. As much as God tells you and the hardest part is... listening and complying... obeying.

lol don't admire me i haven't weaned myself off Bleach yet but i'm trying to avoid xxxholic, claymore, and anything full of sexual nonsense ^_^...but yeah ur right pray before you jump into anything and ban yourself from awesome anime or even life in general.

when it comes to bleach i'm just limiting how much time i spend watching it and how often i think about it in general...
