comment Source of Christian attitudes towards fantasy and role playing games
I think this principle, along with a (mis?)interpretation of Thessalonians 5:22 could be a strong argument against games/movies/novels with "magic" in them. (Not that I would agree with this interpretation/view)

comment Is God just and/or merciful?
"evil is needed for good to be recognized" - God was good before he created anyone capable of evil. I suggest a Biblical basis for this view. I don't think this is a Christian view at all. If it is, please provide a Biblical or other Christian reference.

Auto repair, computer programming, and reading, can also be "all consuming with a cult like aspect of sucking you into it's world and not letting you go." :) I think @Caleb's answer does a good job of discussing how neither role-playing, nor anything else (apart from God), should monopolize our time. If role-playing is a problem for everyone, it needs to be a problem on its own merits--not because some people don't have a good sense of time management.

I also think that saying "fantasy is mostly for kids" really misses the point, too. I don't know any kids who play D&D.

comment When (and why) did the empty cross v.s. crucifix split happen?
If I'm not mistaken, for the first few centuries of the church, they didn't even use a cross at all.

comment Did Jephthah sacrifice his daughter?
The ESV you quoted uses 'past perfect' tense. The KJV you quoted uses 'simple past' tense. I think the only difference here is that the KJV's point of reference is more ambiguous. In ESV, it's clear that "at that time she knew no man," where as KJV could mean "at that time she knew no man" or "for ever she knew no man."
