Minecraft

This game has been getting increasingly popular and while I'd always been sort of skeptical about it, I decided to try it out and it is actually incredibly addicting. I've sort of stopped playing it though because I've pretty much done everything short of just mining for more stuff and I really want to try multi-player with a friend at some point. Also the bugs are really starting to get on my nerves.
Anyway, just now I found a rather odd article on how Minecraft is about teaching Christian principles. I read through it and I'm utterly unconvinced. A lot of the points seem retrospective, only really applicable to someone who is approaching it from a religious perspective, yet they claim that it is a Christian game aimed at a secular audience. I actually really can't tell if this whole website is a joke or not, but I wanted to share it to see what you guys think.
Is this person trying to project meaning where there isn't any, or do you think he or she has an actual case?
[Edit]
This has to be a joke, no one could seriously launch this misguided an attempt to connect with youth could they? I mean I've seen some pretty cheesy stuff in the past but this? It's attached to objective ministries, which I'm positive is satire (even though they said explicitly that they are not). I don't know, it's all so infuriatingly on the line so as to make your head hurt.

I got to admit, I am a huge minecraft fan. I got the game via paypal and its so much fun.

I cant say anything stands out as christian though. It's so open ended that you could make the game about anything you wanted to.

This game was more popular and all, I've always been skeptical about such, I decided to try it and it's really addictive. I played the demo of it and want to buy.

Anyone bought the beta version and want a server to play on? It's just me and 1 other person right now, i'm looking to get a few more people building on my server so it's a bit more alive . Server is in the midwest so pings should be good almost anywhere in the US.

All are welcome as of right now, just PM me for connection info.

I got bored with Minecraft after about a week. It's far too limiting. :\

Minecraft a Christian Game? The folks on the server "wwjd.dyndns.org" think it is. They've merged with other Christian Minecraft groups to make a mega church fellowship of Minecraft. People can build in some areas as soon as they join the server. Several chapels have Bible verses and Biblical Recreations are not too uncommon.

The server address is "wwjd.dyndns.org" Christian Minecraft. It does exist :p

Kiss wwjd.dyndns.org

A group of people went to the server to bring our buildings down. t's commonly called griefing. It was so well protected by the Christian community, that some of the griefers actually posted "we attacked WWJD and WWJD is winning." Here is an excerpt from the server owner:

Most of the griefs were to a glass structure built by CCGR member, jgamer. It had water in it that spilled onto the ground. (not much action). Signs are posted near griefed areas to say why ppl were jailed.

The most creative grief? Elite_DWB (or something like that). Turned the cross on a recently built church, to be the number one. God is number 1, so most of us have taken this in stride. Elite is currently building the jail in anyway he sees fit. What did he to to the jail so far? He made it into a church.

We are Christian, we tell the world about God's son, Jesus. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved (John 3:17). The world is welcome on our server, to learn from our Bible verses and from our witness. Christian means Christ-Like. We are Christian. We are legion.

Praise God for making this possible.
