Predators and Pray?
If you're looking to put a little Jesus in your paintball routine, make sure to visit Wisconsin's Promised Land, the nation's largest Christian paintball park. Being neither a Christian, nor a Bible scholar, I was a little shocked by the idea, but apparently the facilities are going over incredibly well with pastors, youth group leaders and gun-savvy believers in the region. I guess it makes sense. Apparently, all warfare begins with a group prayer, curses aren't allowed (no matter where you get shot), and all of the paintballs are emblazoned with Christian fish symbols. And while I have no reason to scoff at the idea (seems like it could be an effective bonding exercise), some of the players' speculations on Jesus' strength as a paintball player did make me grin. Particularly this one, from Ohio player Dan Skinner:
"The Bible talks about Jesus wrestling with his disciples... I believe if he played paintball he would play just like anyone else. He wouldn't use his divine power to win, because that would be cheating."
