The graphics in this post are from the website of a new computer game titled, "Left Behind: Eternal Forces."
It is a computer game that places the player in a post-rapture environment. In case you're not familiar with "The Rapture," it's the alleged abduction of all good Christians by God, right before the devil incarnate wrecks unholy hell on those "Left Behind."
From their own website, "Left Behind: Eternal Forces" features:
· Conduct physical & spiritual warfare : using the power of prayer to strengthen your troops in combat and wield modern military weaponry throughout the game world.
· Command your forces through intense battles across a breathtaking, authentic depiction of New York City .
· Control more than 30 units types - from Prayer Warrior and Hellraiser to Spies, Special Forces and Battle Tanks!
· Play multiplayer games as Tribulation Force or the AntiChrist's Global Community Peacekeepers with up to eight players via LAN or over the internet!
What they're saying is this: "There will be holy Jihad. All infidels will perish!" Check the screen-shot below - haven't we heard this kind of rhetoric before?
Obviously, with self-righteousness like this, they don't need a savior, they need a decent BRAND MANAGER.
Soon, zealots from all over God's green earth can practice the devlish art of religiocide because, "It don't matter! All the good'uns ha'been taken up!"
We can read that Jesus healed, wept, lead, preached - even got pissed off (at people who profit from other people's ignorance).
But - can you imagine Jesus scrunched down on the crest of a hill, peering over a group of Pharisees, whispering, "Ok. Here's the plan. Mark...you and Simon walk around the left flank. John, Bartholomew...you guys get the flaming tar balls ready. Judas? Ok- you saunter down there and distract'em while me'n Peter rush in to cut off their ears!"
Good grief - too many people's brains are in their "left behind."
Christian culture is definitely in need of salvation.
