Jesus frowns on killing people, even heretics, who are just sitting around drinking eggnog. But if the heretics are attacking you, merry Christmas. You may fire at will. Just be careful where you aim. You can lose “spirit points” for indiscriminate killing. Of course, you can always win them back if you pray hard enough. You should pray hard anyway. You don’t want to be “left behind” come the Rapture. You could end up in some bizarre Christian video game like “Eternal Forces.” Tiny electronic Christians will chase after you, trying to rack up their score by converting you. The only respite you’ll get is when they occasionally turn their attention to killing murderous hordes of unbelievers. Does all this strike you as a tad ridiculous? — Tom Henderson/Lewiston Morning Tribune.
DFO: As an Evangelical, I don’t know what makes me more nervous here — a cynical but talented Lewiston Trib editorialist discussing an apparent new conservative Christian e-game. Or the fact that the game is loony and worthy to be criticized. I’d never heard of “Eternal Forces” until this week. I’ll need to read up on it before I comment on it.
Question: Do you know enough to have an impression on “Eternal Forces”?
