Come Lord--And Bring Some Ammo?


I didn't believe it until I saw it for myself -- "Left Behind" is now a first person "shooter" video game. That's right, the Parousia is coming. And what is your role exactly?--Shoot to kill.

I'm not kidding. Here's the description of the new game, "Left Behind: Eternal Forces," from a recent LA Times story.

"In the game, Tribulation squads unleash the usual arsenal against the Antichrist: guns, tanks, helicopters. But soldiers lose some of their spirituality every time they kill an opponent and must be bolstered through prayer. The failure to nurture good guys causes their spirit points to drop, leaving them vulnerable to recruitment by the other side."
If that's not bad enough, it gets worse.

When you kill one of the bad guys, your player exclaims: "Praise the Lord!"

You can't make up this stuff. For more horrifying details go here. Talk about apocalyptic...

Wow! Just when you thought that the Rapture teaching couldn't get any more heretical!
