Who wants to play Christian gang? Ok. Let’s pretend we’re patrolling the streets of post-apocalyptic New York and killing off Jews, atheists, and other evil people who refuse to convert to our kind of Christianity. Ooh-Rah!
This is the subject of, Left Behind – Eternal Forces, a video game series based on the frighteningly successful Rapture series, co-authored by Jerry Jenkins and the bible-thumping, fundamentalist minister Tim Lahaye. The games are carried by over 10,000 U.S. retailers, including Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Target, Circuit City, GameStop, EB Games, CompUSA, Amazon.com, Costco, and first hit the shelves in 2006, just in time in time to celebrate the birth of the man known as the Prince of Peace. The latest game, Left Behind-World at War 4, was released at the end of 2011.
Jerome Mikulich, director of outreach ministries for the company describes the game, as a beacon of light that could shine in the dark world of video games. The most important thing is it helps kids realize there is power in the spirit world and that by praying they can endure and get through real-life situations.
