Christian VideO Game: Not very Christian

video-game-clipart-11.jpg

A new computer game in which players must kill or convert non-Christians is causing controversy in the US.

Liberal and progressive Christian groups are calling for retail giant Wal-Mart to pull the game from its shelves.

Violent Christian video game shocks US

The game – Left Behind: Eternal Forces – is based on the Book of Revelation when Jesus has taken his people to heaven and left nonbelievers behind to face the Antichrist.

Left Behind Games’ president Jeffrey Frichner insists the game is actually pacifist because players lose ‘spirit points’ every time they gun down nonbelievers instead of converting them.

Well spiffy.
This ought to really encourage tolerance and inter-faith respect.

I got 3 words for the creators of this pathetic excuse for a game: bigoted, intolerant and divisive.

But we musn’t ban it..heavens no. Freedom of expression after all is the course du-jour.
Well, even “freedom” has its limits.

God’s family is made up of people from every tribe and nation, is it not.
True Christian values promote diversity, inclusion, and tolerance.

But the vast majority worldwide have shed their Judeo-Christian roots which has actually created a moral vacuum which the burrrka wearing, American and Jew hating, polygamy endorsing, sha-ria-law Rad.Muzlims are all too eager to fill.

This video game is the result of secular humanism. It’s comrades are well known..Take yer pick. fascism, Nazism, communism.

After all..who’s to say what right or wrong, or where the proverbial line should be drawn on what a culture tolerates or accepts.

This is how we reap the rewards of a country being gagged with moral equivalence, white liberal guilt, self- hatred, and above all ..suicidal multiculturalism.

After all..anything goes…right?

Whats that sound?”
Oh yea……….that would be
Cognitive dissonance ringing awfully loud.

    Secular humanism? Explain. I’m not seeing the logic here. Christians did witch burnings and jew persecutions long before secularism.

  2. Gayle says:

    Oh good grief, you’ve been honored by the presence of either a Muslim or a Muslim wanna-be.

    I’m with you, Angel. This is totally disgusting. Many of the Video Games are but this is the pitts! We must put a stop to this vile nonsense. These people will do anything to make money, but we know they will pay for it in the end.

  3. Ma r t i n @ b l o g b a t says:

    This game is disgusting. Abdullah however needs to check his history. While it is true that many professed Christians committed some extraordinarily evil (and might I add, unbiblical) atrocities, no one, not even radical islamists have caused the deaths of as many innocents as by radical atheists and/or pagan revivalists in the 2oth Century alone. Look it up Abdullah. :)

    As for the game, I thought the “Left Behind” name was protected. If the people behind the book series sanctioned this game, they have a LOT of explaining to do. There is no excuse for it.

    And yes, the government should ban it in the public interest, in my ever-humble opinion. :)

    Random Thoughts in search of correlation:
    ~
    Left Behind: Eternal Forces is probably of the
    same lame production quality as Left Behind:The Movie.
    ~
    Painting a Christian label on a first person shooter game doesn’t make it edifying, any more than stocking it in the Hello Kitty section would make it rated “E- for everyone”
    ~
    How about “faith based” games like”Radical Jihadi : 9-11″ in which you recruit a team of hijackers to destroy US landmarks and kill people ?
    or “Sati : Widow’s Pyre “, in which… never mind ? I’d bet they would outsell LB:EF until all the Wal-Marts that carried them were torched, that is.

    Speaking of that, where are the protests ,
    the smoldering Sam Walton effigies,
    the screaming morons shouting :
    “Hey Hey Ho Ho
    Video Games that misrepresent the faith of the Bible as violent and murderous and sell for only $ 49.99 at Wal-Mart instead of $59.99 like they do at the Mom and Pop video game stores
    have got to go!! ”

    Shoot, I shouldn’t have had that cappucino on the way home from Church tonight. Sorry to ramble.
    ~
    Christianity just doesn’t make an exciting video game.
    That doesn’t make knowing Jesus less of an adventure.

    It is much more exciting in reality,
    in virtual reality, well …
    …not so much.

    I love the Amazon customer reviews on it…

    ‘Thou Shalt Not Kill…unless it’s a hecka fun videogame’

    ‘You get to kill people that aren’t Christians and then pray your guilt away. Just like in real life! I can’t wait for the Pat Robertson Pray Pray Revolution game next!’

    ‘It makes killing OK, as long as you pray.’

    ‘Doesn’t this just sound more like “Grand Theft Auto: The Rapture?”‘

    ‘The goal of the game to convert everybody to one faith (Christian) ‘

    mmm that sounds like… like an Islamic analogous aspect.

    FTGF!

    Kinda funny

    Grand Theft Jesus…under your hanuka bush courtesy of wal-mart..
    and Steal the Menora from the Airport… by the liberal left playing all accross the country…
    Happy and Merry to all….

  7. Abdullah Ali says:

    Well, we’re mature around here. I’ve been visiting this site for a while and I usually agree with the author. All I asked is how does secularism cause Christians to be intolerant- (some) Christians have been intolerant at various points throughout history, long before secularism. And the answers? 1. Oh oh muslim 2. Atheists did it more. My point was that you can’t blame secularists for every intolerance and problem around. The terrorists call the Western world secularists- does that mean secularism is causing terrorism?

  8. Angel says:

    Abdullah.. thanks for your courtesy….I usually “moderate” the comments that are vulgar or even personal attacks against anyone….I will try to answer your questions and ask anyone else to please do so respectfully. :)

    Thanks the rest of yaz as well for the comments and insights!

    Abdullah:
    Sometimes we need to listen to what people are saying.
    Most terrorists in today’s world are spreading violence in the name of (and with justification from) Islam: Look at Kashmir, the palestinian areas, Darfur, the suburbs of Paris, the inter-Muslim Iraqi violence, the Muslim-Christian violence in Indonesia, the Muslim serperatists in Thailand and the Philippines.
    It’s a pretty long list, and I don’t think I got most of it. Still, the point is that the instigators in these areas are not using secular humanism to justify anything; they are using Islam. The most recent non-Muslim terrorist activity I can think of was in Northern Ireland, between Catholics and Protestants, but that has pretty much petered out. Again, though, they used religion as justification.

    How this relates to a video game that promotes complete intolerance, I do not know…

  10. jimmyb says:

    A sad state of affairs.
    But I reckon we can’t ban it, because of that slippery slope ya know.

  11. Right Truth says:

    Democrats Plan to Take Control of Iraq Spending…

    The headline reads Democrats plan to take control of Iraq spending, but translated that means Dems will cut the budget for Iraq. If they can’t get the troops out one way, they will try another and cutting resources is not…

  12. KKarLLMmM says:

    Secular humanism…. is a humanist philosophy that upholds reason, ethics, and justice and specifically rejects the supernatural and the spiritual as warrants of moral reflection and decision-making. Like other types of humanism, secular humanism is a life stance or a praxis focusing on the way human beings can lead good and happy lives (eupraxsophy). The term was coined in the 20th century to make a clear distinction from “religious humanism”.
    Mr. Ali, the problem as stated so properly by Angel is the dilution of religion to the point where it is barely visible. the idea that there are always a few “bad apples” started in the Garden of Eden and will always be with us..but the concept to promote anti-religious ideas in the form of a game has brought the “playing field” to an alltime low..welcome to WHT and come around again and say hi!…

  13. InRussetShadows says:

    This marks a first for me — disagreeing with Angel about something. I am no fan of the Left Behind Series, as I find their theology faulty. However, in their defense, it is fiction. This is one step further removed — it is a video game based on a fictional book. As such, it does use the strictures of video games.

    Let’s be honest. Would you prefer a game that forbids the player from shooting people at all? Given the scenario that the game paints, that would be completely unreal. How about not allowing the player to shoot innocent people? Again, that would not fit with the scenario the game sets up. How about penalizing people for murder? Well that would work, and that’s what they did. Do you see what I’m getting at here? The point is that in order for a game to engage people you have to work within the strictures of what makes that genre of game good. In this case, it’s the strategy genre, which derives from the nature of the books.

    I also feel a kinship with the authors, as I too have published a violent video game, though to be honest it’s all text and not graphics. Heck, I even thank Jesus in the notes. This is all to say that violence itself is not necessarily a bad thing. It all depends on how it is used.

  14. InRussetShadows says:

    In short, a video game is not theology. The game creators have stated this. Don’t hyperventilate about it.

  15. American Crusader says:

    I’m sure that the ACLU will come running to defend the game makers right to free speech and I’m also sure that it should be protected.
    Still, this goes directly to the heart of what values we as a people and a nation want to instill in our children. These people have the right to make this game but as a customer and a parent, I have the right not to purchase it.

  16. cube says:

    I have an idea. Don’t buy the game if you find it objectionable. It won’t be under my tree.

  17. jimmyb says:

    I thought I had you blogrolled long ago!!
    It is done now! ;)

    Sorry for the oversight.

  18. VerityINK says:

    What in the hell is the matter with people? I read your top headline about this game and I’m back to spittin’ coffee and calling everybody assholes, again!

  19. Tim says:

    You beat me to it. I was going to blog about this but your post handles it perfectly. This is totally stupid and disgusting, and its prickish acts like this that get guys like me who claim to be Christian painted as zealots no different than Islamofascists. If we really were going to kill everyone that is not Christian (after attempting to convert them) we WOULD be just like Islam.

  20. The HILL Chronicles says:

    Kerry to visit Iraq – what for…….

    Senator John Kerry’s (D-Mass.) botched joke about the U.S. troops in Iraq put a damper on his presidential aspirations, plans to go to Iraq this coming weekend to meet with Soldiers, political leaders and military officials….

  21. Layla says:

    Sheese! What’s this world coming to?

  22. Angel says:

    Thanks thanks alls for the somewhat ‘differing’ but enlightening views! ;)

  23. Brooke says:

    How deplorable! I wonder about the folks who produced it; are they some kind of freak cult-type folks?

    Definitely un-Christian! :evil:

  24. kerwin says:

    Jeffrey Frichner may have a point since the game is appealing to a specific audience. Loosing points can be an effective deterrent. They question is how many point are loss and is enough to discourage individuals from killing in the name God and his Son Jesus. How violent is the game?
