no matter how much you want to. And I want to ignore this but just can’t. One of the more interesting things about putting your thoughts out on the web is the strange responses you can get to the most inane thoughts and the complete lack of such to some of what you think are decent observations. So it is with much hesitation I bring this up but it begs consideration.
What already? Left Behind Game
Okay, so now I’m treading in deep water but this game is just wrong, IF you are a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ. If not, blast away I suppose. But remember, this is supposed to be a positive view of Christianity. Hmm. Let’s see about that:
“You lose spirit points if you kill somebody, but you can hit the prayer button to restore the points.”
Okay, so I can blow away someone and pray it away? Are they sure about that?
“We had the vision to create a game with a positive moral message based on biblical values that parents could embrace and discuss with their kids.”
Biblical values? Guess I missed this one:
“You are sent on a spiritual and military mission to convert people, and nobody is allowed to remain neutral,”
Can anyone say Islam? Forced conversion? This is Biblical?
though neither he nor most of those e-mailing him have yet seen it for themselves.
Okay, well, I’m in that group. Haven’t seen it, haven’t played it. But I’ve seen the false rapture stuff for years – this is based on that – and it isn’t going to help spread the Good News.
The game has elements that educate players on various issues (such as evolution and intelligent design), and gives them the opportunity to become believers.
Great. More drivel. I wonder if they have a cartoon character asking the game players to recite the sinner’s prayer before blowing away the heathens. Sigh. Late.
