About the Armoury Bible Game
"Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates."
The account of the Judges opens with a telling verse: “After that whole generation had been gathered to their ancestors, another generation grew up who knew neither the Lord nor what he had done for Israel. Then the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord and served the Baals.” (Judges 2:10-11)
God had made a covenant with the children of Israel and they emphatically confessed that they were going to keep all of God’s law and not worship the gods of the Canaanites. (Joshua 24:17-18)
They forgot one important thing: to teach their children what they had seen and heard. They neglected to teach their children who God is (The Attributes of God) and what God has done by delivering them from the bondage of Egypt (biblical history). As a result, we see the aftermath of such negligence in the account of the Judges.
Fatherlessness and escapism through entertainment are connected problems in our culture and the Gospel needs to be applied to the world's largest entertainment industry: gaming. The Armoury is a Bible game that is designed to teach the Scriptures to children and adults with the hope of illuminating who Christ is. Players will develop skills in opening and handling the Word of God through playing the game. We want to help parents and equip churches as the Bible teaches that God's chief means of discipling children effectively is in the home (Deut 6:2; Ps 44:1; Eph 6:4; 1 Thess 2:11-12).
The Armoury is a game that has been designed with these three goals in mind:
1) To encourage family-lead Bible teaching and worship.
2) Give players a wide knowledge of the character and nature of God and the work of Christ.
3 ) Give players confidence to defend the Word of God as a true historical account.
