re: Happy 8th Year Anniversary Saints 3G

8 years ago today I did something I will never regret, I decided to start an ALL Christian gaming guild.

I was ridiculed for being a Christian gamer, by both Christians and non-Christians alike. The guild was mocked. We were banned. We were called prejudice, haters, and unloving. We were threatened. We were blackmailed. But in spite of all that, we kept our integrity, we persevered, and God blessed and we grew.

Lifelong friendships have been made here, people have met in real life after meeting here, prayers have been answered here, needs have been met here, people have helped each other here, friends were invited here, people have come here, people have left here, tears have been shed here, and Wern8 passed away here.

Problems have sprung up, but by God's grace & wisdom, they were overcome.

In the past 8 years, we have endured many trials and tribulations, but God is good and we're still here.

In 8 years we have:
Accepted 1,273 applications
Rejected 171 applications
Closed 168 applications

We have raised more than $3,000+ for members with financial/health needs

We have shared the Gospel, personally or via written word to over 5,000 unique visitors

After 8 years, we are averaging 35 member visitors per day and 18 non-member visitors per day on our site

We have hosted well over 150 Bible studies; held prayer, opened or closed in prayer, or prayed together over 500 times; and shared 100's of prayer requests.

This place is my home on the web and you all are my family, literally, in Christ. I want you all to know that I love each and every one of you and though I am not perfect, I try my best to be the best leader that I can be for this guild that God has entrusted me with. It has been my privilege to be your Overseer these past 8 years, and I look forward to seeing what God will do with Saints 3G in the next 8.

Happy 8th Anniversary to all of you. May God bless you.

8 years, cool


_________________
2 Corinthians 5:21. "He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf that we might become the righteousness of God in Him." All people are sinners by nature and by action. All people are sinners from birth. All people are born alienated from God who is Holy, cannot look upon sin, cannot fellowship with sinners. That alienation because of sin prevents us from knowing God. He is too perfectly Holy to have anything to do with sinners, except to reject them. Now the result of that rejection, the result of that alienation in time is Godlessness. The result of it in eternity is hell. So this alienation in to which every human being is born is indeed a serious issue. It means that everybody lives their life without God and if they die in that condition, will spend their eternity without God in torment.

Thought I heard him mention Disney/Orlando, but that could have been wishful thinking on my part. ;p

Happy Anniversary, Saints! Thank you all, current and past members, for the memorable times.
