I just want to share Psalm 139 7-12 with the readers of this story:

7 Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?
8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea,
10 even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,”
12 even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.

I think God has a pretty good concept of VR. While Drumsy might not have been the best example of it, the baptism online is still legitimate in many perspectives.


That's space which has been explored in Second Life and by more than Christians. I was with a Neo-Pagan group that designed and provided a version of the Eleusinian Mysteries revival/reconstruction begun in the 1970s by the Church of All Worlds. Many of the people who assisted had never been in a virtual world before and were convinced going in they could not possibly have the same experience sitting in front of a computer as they would live. They proceeded to eat crow in two realms. The reality of religious experiences are in the mind, heart, and soul. People who attach so much to the tools that they deny the power of others which do the same thing because of newness alone are limited thinkers.

The VR Church, motto - "It doesn’t matter if you believe in God or not."
(Straight up - on its web site haha) Well thats a relief then. Apart from where it lists its indoc... erm belief systems. A-PEST sums it up nicely.

Seriously - this is a new thing? Very quick search gives you


from 1998. And thats one of the less woo woo ones.


No, religion is BS, so is spirituality.

Religious or non-religious, I think we can all agree it's the same level of realness as a regular baptism.
