“Whatever your theological perspective, there’s a good chance you’ll enjoy the action packed thriller series Left Behind". [N.Z Christian News]

“This gives them [teens] something worthy” [Tim LeHaye, Co-Author]
Like me you are probably offended at the very concept that a video game, based on a book by the same name, could be conceived and then distributed, that actually encourages & rewards religious hatred.
So who is behind this vile PC game & publication, which instills bigotry & deliberately targets local teens?
At a guess most Kiwis would say an underground cell of Al Qaeda?
Well, they would be way off the mark.
The hate mongering book and game is marketed in New Zealand by those ‘family friendly’ Christian Stores.
Now imagine what would happen from the likes of Family First, The Kiwi Party and other fundamentalist interests, if a similar game or publication arrived in New Zealand where the aim and synopsis was to exterminate Christians?
The moral outrage would be heard the length and breadth of New Zealand, and the well practiced Christian pressure groups would call for its immediate banning.
"Hey come look Dad, I killed me one of those no good heathen Jews"
It will be these very same indignatious Christians, that will be filling their own children’s Christmas stockings with this ‘wholesome’ game & book, in which it’s heroic character, leads a post-rapture cell of ‘Christ’s Warriors’ who battle the ungodly masses.
If you look closely to the above picture from 'Left Behind Eternal Forces' you'll spot 'the army of the damned' are basically unarmed civilians.
It’s fine for these god-fearing parents to fill these young minds with images of this Christian ‘Mad Max’ waste-land, where a lack of faith in Jesus, is enough to justify extermination.
These paragons of Christian ‘values’ have no problem gifting their kids a video game, where after liquidating Jews, Atheists, Hindus, Muslims you get bonus points for saying “Praise the Lord”.
It’s easy to see why we live in a world so full of intolerance, why Christians are so often labeled hypocrites.
