browsing a gaming site tonight and came across this…
Left Behind Games today announced that it will be publishing a real-time strategy PC game based on the Left Behind novels. Left Behind: Eternal Forces is appropriately scheduled for release “between Christmas 2005 and Easter 2006.” Left Behind Games was established in 2001, and it aims to bring morally just and family-friendly games to the masses.
The game is set after the Rapture has taken the faithful up to heaven. Satan’s forces are slowly taking over the world, slowly bending countries to their will. As part of the rebel Tribulation Forces, gamers will fight in apocalyptic battles in New York City.
Eternal Forces crosses over from the series of novels written by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins. The Christian books have sold more than 63 million copies across the world, and the first two novels were adapted into films starring Growing Pains actor Kirk Cameron.

yes, as if they didnt make enough money with their water down theology books and movie, but now Lehaye and Jenkins are cashing in on the gaming market.
how can i say this?
because a glance at their site and all you see is the market for “God Games”.
to me this will turn into CCM’s problem. Christians will go out and buy this less than great video game just because it has a christian label on it.
put out piss poor and theologically weak products catering to mass appeal.
this is a sad day in Christendom…
sad sad day indeed
