Xbox to replace tracts in evangelism…really?

LeftbehindgameChristians these days have so many options.  We have our own entertainment industry. I am all for it and think there is a lot of biblically-endorsed freedom to culturally express our faith.  But, sometimes even I think things go a bit far for even me.  Imagine, if the Left Behind movies have been already an embarrassment for you as you talk with your non-Christian friends, that there is a Left Behind video game about the series.  Tanks, Humvees and troops are gathered in a game akin to "Warcraft" yet where we Christians are fighting the evil forces of the Antichrist.

I have already read reports and posts about this game, but not until today did I find a worthy post about it.  At one of my regular reads, ThinkChristian you will find more about this.

What do you think:  is a video game where evangelism is done by a click of the mouse really a good thing or not?

  5. All I wanna know is two things: Can I play as the forces of the Antichrist (the bad guys always have cooler stuff!) and if there will be a “World of Warcraft” version of this??? (Imagine making your own Saint!)
