first it was the da vinci code..... now dota... this was posted in friendster. and i personally thought it was pretty lame.. Saturday, 3 June, 2006 8:31 AM Subject: the TRUTH behind DOTA...t'was jst emailed to me... Message: Dota defense of the ancients ANCIENT question: who is ancient? answer: God but satan disguises himself and deceives us, saying that He is the Ancient one. Why? who would you think you will defend on this game? whose defense is this? (with those cheats and verbal acknowledgements.. later to be discussed) the obvious aims: -to kill your enemy, to destroy the tree of life for sentinel, to destroy the frozen throne for scourge, and TO BE BEYOND GODLIKE in this game. the real aims: - worshipping satan through consciously enjoying the game. Why? - because this game is extremely a deception from satan and you are actually enjoying it. THE GAME There are tow bases or teams: Sentinel vs. scourge Good one monsters Human dark evil Weak strong CHEATS: WHO'S YOUR DADDY? - This is used to become stronger - But actually this cheat pertains to admittance that your father indeed is satan. GREED IS GOOD - To have more money - In Ecclesiastes 5:10-11 "Those who love money will never have enough,, the more you have.. the more people come to help you spend it." - It feeds your mind that it's fine to love money because you need it. I SEE DEAD PEOPLE - This allows you to see the map - The truth behind is that, spiritually the players and those who are involved are dead; they don't have real life for they are being used by satan to praise him through this game. Dead people! Verbal acknowledgements: - OMG (Oh my God) The Bible states, "do not use the name of the Lord in vain!" - BULLSHIT and HOLYSHIT need not to explain - God job / Good work when you killed somebody you are being congratulated with a good job or good work. TESTIMONY: At the dawn of April 17, 2006, my brother (REYVON VALENTINE) dreamt of 2 dreams. First, he dreamt that Jesus is showing how evil dota is, then he woke up and blurted out: "ayoko na magdota!" he fell asleep again and had his second dream, he was talking with a friend who in real life doesn't want to play dota anymore, when my brother blurted out once again, "ayoko na magdota!", a man came near to him and laid hands cursing my brother. When they rebuked it in Jesus name, it disappeared. Then, when he shouted "hindi na ako magdodota kahit kailan!" Crystal Maiden (one of those unpleasing character in dota) appeared in my brother and he told us that it felt like he couldn't breathe, my brother rebuked it in Jesus name and told to it, "hindi na ako magpapabitag sa iyo, I belong to Jesus!" Then he woke up and ran downstairs. He told everything to us and prayed for him. My father helped him renounce it and right after he surrendered he puked, and we brought him to hospital. But our family claimed that Jesus is victorious and satan will never win. He had a testimony about his dream the Sunday after he experienced it, after he the witness, those who are involved in dota were prayed for. Note: Akala ng lahat laro lang dota, pero si Satan hindi nakikipaglaro. He is using dota to pollute the minds of our youth. Ephesians 4:27 Don't give devil a chance! If you ignore this, it's your own risk. This is the TRUTH. Do not be blind and do not harden your heart. If Jesus would play DOTA would He enjoy it? Then, what would Jesus play? What would Jesus choose? a message posted by my friend at friendster.. i'm not afraid to say that i believe in this mail..satan deceives us through a lot of things..you think it's just a game, but it's not! satan would do evrything to deceive us, because right from the start he knows that he was already defeated by Jesus by His blood that was shed on the cross at the Mount of Calvary.. satan was defeated thousands of years ago & he wants someone to be with him at the 2nd coming of Christ wherein he would be thrown in the lake of fire together with his fallen angels.satan is an "ANGEL OF DECEIT!" Godbless! END OF MESSAGE ok. so i'm not taking anything out from the message except the names. if you need the translation for the testimony part, maybe i'll translate it later or somebody else can. i respect GOD and i am a Christian myself but these are just unreasonable claims. some have legitimate reasons and the verses taken are as good as it can be. but still it was not used in a right way of reasoning. but thats all just IMHO. feel free to criticize.
