In the Event of Rapture, Getting "Left Behind" May Not Be Nonchristians' Biggest Problem...

As a practicing, if not "official," Quaker, and as someone who is decidedly pro-peace, I may be vastly more sensitive to this sort of thing than most people (though I sincerely hope not). But, come on. Truly. This is the sort of thing that is accepted in the Christian church today? For real?

From CrossWalk America:

Perhaps the saddest thing of all is that Left Behind Games doesn’t think you care that they’re teaching teens to kill in the name of Jesus. In fact, they think most “mainstream” Christians will embrace it. Again, from their own FAQs:

Question: Are you concerned that the Christian community won’t want a game in their home where lives are taken and people get killed?

Answer: Absolutely not. I suppose there might be a very small number that do, but we do not expect this represents the majority of the mainstream and Christian marketplace....

C'mon, Tyndale: Give us all something to be thankful for and pull this turkey.

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.com

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.
