Sunday Funnies: Now You Can Play God, in a videogame!

A friend from church sent me the following YouTube video, pointing on this new video game and its problematic views about God.

Would you believe that there’s yet another videogame based off of VERY BAD BIBLICAL INTERPRETATION? And not only that, gamers get to get their game on as the Almighty YHWH. #FACEPALM!

I don’t know how old this interpretation is, the Tower of Babel as a curse just does not work in light of Pentecost, and reasonable exegesis. Well, get ready to “unleash your wrath and mortify these arrogant humans with your divine powers. Summon bolts of lightning, massive earthquakes, meteor showers or vengeful floods upon the Babylonians: The perfect apocalyptic arsenal”; obviously, cuz the story was just about the Babylonians, am I right? Am I right?

Actually no, the Babylonians did not establish their empire until centuries later. But hey, when you have a videogame where you can play the Lord of Hosts, why be bothered with little facts like that? Or the fact that  God acted to save humanity from human empire by blessing us with linguistic diversity, rather than throw thunderbolts like some pagan god, you know, Zeus.

Well, glad to see more and more folks profiteering on the idea of a violent, merciless tyrant. Have fun with that!
