‘I am Jesus Christ’ Video Game Lets You Play Jesus

No, you don’t get to play Jesus, as though he’s an opponent on a multi-player game (by the way, he would win). You get to play Jesus…as in, role-play as the Son of God.

Let’s chalk this up to the list of bad ideas and Second Commandment violations, as though gamers don’t already have a god complex…

“You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above…

It’s not a troll, and it’s not satire. The game developer, according to Fox News, is Playway, a Polish video game company.

Playway’s description of the game is as follows:

“I am Jesus Christ’ is a realistic simulator game inspired by stories from the New Testament of the Bible. Check if you can perform all famous miracles from the Bible like Jesus Christ. It is a simulation game and you can try to save the world as He did. Are you ready to fight with Satan in the desert, exorcising demons and curing sick people? Or calm the storm in the sea?”

So, and this may be surprising to you, but Adam and Even were kicked out of the Garden of Eden for disobeying God in order to try being like Him (Genesis 3:5), and not in the ‘imitation is flattery’ sort of way. Satan was kicked out of Heaven for trying to play God (Isaiah 14:12-15).

Life Tip: Don’t try to play God.

Reviews claim that the video game will give users a unique first-person role playing game that will allow them to feel what it’s like to fight Satan.

For the love of all that is good and pure, don’t buy this junk for your kids at Christmas. You know, on account of blasphemy being a bad thing.
