Left Behind Video Game

Ok theres a minor buzz in the blogsphere about some game thats not even out yet where you play as a christian trying to convert non-belivers, and killing those who dont fall in line. Many people are angry because it gives the view that anyone who isnt a certain sect of christian needs to be "cured" oh same for gays. Ok yeah thats lame but then again its a game aimed at people who already have that beleif. To be honest I kind of want to play the game, albiet for the fact that you also have the option of playing as the Anti-Christ going around slaughtering preachy christians, which sounds like a good time. Particularly because I drove past about 4 people in a little protest (it is a small town) with signs about how jesus died for our sins and shit. When ever I see those folk I just want to make my own poster that says "Jesus Died Two Thousand Years Ago; Get Over It" or something like that, not cause I have any issue with Jesus, but mostly cause I like pissing off religious people. Im an Atheist and while I am convinced that there is no God, I do think Jesus exsited and I like his teachings, even if he was a little insane, thinking his Mom was a virgin and all. While Im on the subject of No-God I want to point out a little something that a great author Douglas Adams said before he passed. He said he was an Atheist although its funny that theirs even a word for it, I mean theres no word for someone who doesnt beleive in astrology theres no name for a person who doesnt beleive the moon is made of cheese, so why do we even need a word to describe a person who doesnt believe that their is some mysterious being out there that cant be found knows all and has the power to do anything and yet refuses to help people. Even if it turns out I am wrong and their is a god, theres no way that I would worship such a cruel comander. And truth be told Im not sure there was ever a time, even when I was a young child where I actually believed, it just never followed logic, and if god is all powerfull I would assume he/she/it would at least be somewhat logical.

Its a damn good thing no-one reads this crap I write cause this one would probably get my ass mauled to death by the folks with signs down the road. Oh well thats my view, I dont push it on others I dont tell them that they are wrong to believe in god or the flying spagetti monster of whatever and I simple ask for the same respect back.

Oh shit back to the game, now I remeber the one bit I did have issue with. The Anti-Christ is using the U.N. as its own personal army against the fun loving christians with machine guns. Now why the UN of all the military groups they could have picked, why would the Anti-Christ pick the UN Peacekeepers as its demon soldiers? why not the US army or marines? that and the logical issue of the UN headquarters are in NY but they dont have a standing army there. I think its just another rightwing ploy against the UN, because for some reason I havent been able to figure out the Right hates the UN. Like I said im not sure why they would be anti-un but its quite obvious that they are. Oh well thats my point even if I didnt get here by way of any sensical path.

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

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.
