Left Behind Video Game

Out of Ur blogged about the video game pointed out here a couple of days ago. Check out the quote below pulled from the Out of Ur post:

The same article quotes Heath Summerlin, a Christian gamer who believes Eternal Forces "could reach a broad spectrum of people who wouldn't necessarily be exposed to the [Left Behind] books or go to church." Yes, but reach them with what message? Convert or we’ll kill you? The message is more al Qaeda than agape; more Bin Laden than Bible. It makes me wonder if anyone who developed the game has ever actually read the New Testament.

Here, here. Couldn't agree more.

I agree. I haven't read the books because I don't like anything I've picked up about them. Frankly, your post about the games brought to mind the old film, "Road Warrior," which I absolutely hated.
