left behind video game trailer



I was going to post this here but they insisted on putting a picture of God in it. They won't show Adam's naked body and insist on drawing clothes for him but they don't care about the Second Commandment. It's like I'm the only one with Deuteronomy 4:15 in my Bible! Can't they just stick to messing up Revelation?

Let's get to the content.

What do you think about the three paths?
1. Those who daily seek a personal relationship with God
2. Unbelievers and believers who don't seek after God
3. Those who choose to ignore God

Isn't an unbeliever that doesn't seek after God choosing to ignore Him? If one doesn't have a devotional every day does one fall into the second category for good or just on days when one doesn't read the Bible? Why should believers and un-believers be in the same category? I think this was written by a theologically schizophrenic Baptist trying to keep eternal security and not scare away the pentecostals. Why have three categories when discussing Revelation? How about the sheep and the goats like the Bible says? But wait there are more categories!!!

4. All infants
5. Children (did they mean all to qualify infants only?)
One of my professors was telling us that he can clearly see sin in his children when they covet toys, hit eachother, and say, "MINE!" He said it would seem that if all children go to Heaven then one would think it a merciful act to save them from eternal torment in Hell by killing them before they became unsaved and it would even make abortions save people from Hell.

Is the terrible human suffering of the End Times too serious to be made into a game? Can there be any educational value? Especially when the game is geared towards gamers in their late teens, 20's, and up? What about something like the old Bible Adventures Nintendo games from the 80's where Noah collects animals and food for the ark? Does playing this game count as "daily seeking a personal relationship with God?"

Here is a Reformed Historicist website you might find usefull.

That's gotta be a loincloth. Shorts are just absurd! When were they even invented?

I didn't realize it before but the cheribum are all hidden so that one only sees them peeping out here and there and the angels are excessively clothed.

This statement is posted from an employee of Left Behind Games on behalf of Troy Lyndon, our Chief Executive Officer.

There has been in incredible amount of MISINFORMATION published in the media and in online blogs here and elsewhere.

Pacifist Christians and other groups are taking the game material out of context to support their own causes. There is NO “killing in the name of God” and NO “convert or die”. There are NO “negative portrayals of Muslims” and there are NO “points for killing”.

Please play the game demo for yourself (to at least level 5 of 40) to get an accurate perspective, or listen to what CREDIBLE unbiased experts are saying after reviewing the game at www.leftbehindgames.com/pages/controversy.htm

Then, we’d love to hear your feedback as an informed player.

The reality is that we’re receiving reports everyday of how this game is positively affecting lives by all who play it.

Thank you for taking the time to be a responsible blogger.
