Neither Jesus Nor Satan, But International Socialism!

In the video game Left Behind: Eternal Forces, sinners left behind after the Rapture have to decide whether to join or combat the forces of the Antichrist. The object of the game is to kill or convert the opposing forces. Christian critics are objecting that the true Christian approach of turning the other cheek is not offered as an option to players.

The makers of the game say that the violence featured in the game is only defensive. On the Web site above, they say that "Christians are quite clearly taught to turn the other cheek and to love their enemies. It is equally true that no one should forfeit their lives to an aggressor who is bent on inflicting death."

Hmm. What would Jesus do?

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.

Jesus wouldn't play a shitty pc game in a fit, Jesus has the xbox 480 already, when they haven't even invented yet and he's playing Halo 5 on it, which is better than sex!

Jesus loves everyone, except those christian guys, jeez did they never get the joke, the whole fish thing was trying to get them to understand evolution...

I always saw Our Lord as the outdoorsy type.Paragliding, rockclimbing maybe the odd half-marathon here or there.

That's a thought, why aren't marathons mentioned in the Bible?
It must pre-date the bearded wonder.

"Pacifist Christians . . . are taking the game material out of context"?!

What other kind of Christians are there?

He asked sarcastically.
