Why does the film “Let There Be Light” anger atheists?

LTBL_poster

There is a film called Let There Be Light  now available on Blu-Ray and DVD which according to some review sites such as IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes has many atheists enraged.  Why?  The first reason being is that Sean Hannity is the executive producer of this movie. To many like myself, this is a positive thing but to people who have a anti Biblical world view and oppose God, (because the love of sin is greater), Sean Hannity is like a Ray Comfort or Jesus Christ who proclaims truth and light in a place that doesn’t want that light.

How many of us know how much Sean Hannity is hated, mocked and scorned on a daily basis?  Many of us wouldn’t be able to bear as much as Sean does but why is the hatred happening at all?  Sean like many others is a champion of liberty, truth, and a defender of the defenseless.  Sean Hannity proclaims light in a dark place just as the film “Let There Be Light” attempts to do.   And while it’s true we need more Sean Hannitys in this world to spread the “light” in a political sense, his film  “Let There Be Light” goes even further in doing just that.

The war between good and evil is real

This film “Let There Be Light” to some extent, takes on the daily war between good and evil.  It displays the battle going on between going God’s way and the way we naturally would probably rather go.  One reason Jesus was murdered was because He proclaimed that men’s hearts are evil.  We naturally want to sin (break God’s law).  It’s in our DNA.  You don’t need to train a child to do bad deeds.  Instead responsible parents will train their children to do the right thing, morally and lawfully speaking.  Now because it’s natural for sinners to sin, it can even be “fun” to break God’s law, for a season but the real question is, what happens after we die? Will there be a consequence for our sinning against a holy God?   If hell is a real place as Jesus proclaims in Matthew 5 will you find yourself existing in hell for eternity or living in heaven for eternity.  If God is real and requires accountability for our actions, where will He find you?

Let There Be Light proclaims the Light

Now the movie “Let There Be Light” does not discuss hell directly but what is does share is the message of the cross and the resurrection of Jesus Christ.   The idea of the resurrection of Jesus Christ on its own is enough to enrage an atheist.  Reason?  If the Jesus who is spoken of in the Bible is the one who He claims to be (God manifest in the flesh) and did rise from the dead He is therefore the Savior of sinners.  But we each then must deal with our sin before God.  We will someday face a holy, perfect, righteous God who cannot have sin in His presence.  If you have ever taken the good person test, you find we all have broken God’s moral law, the Ten Commandments.   However, if Jesus was a liar and did not rise from the dead despite what his disciples claimed, then none of what I am saying or what He has spoken in His word matters.

When a film shares the truth and especially the light and the One who is the Light of the world, and exposes who the enemy is and his evil plan, it will be opposed by workers of iniquity because as the Bible proclaims, “their deeds were evil”.

“This is the condemnation, that the light [Jesus] has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.”  John 3:19

Do you know the One who is the Light?

How Overrated is Subnautica?

subnautica

Is Subnautica an overrated game?  Of course.  And generally speaking, glowing reviews surround Subnautica despite poor optimization, massive texture pop-in, and inexplicable frame-rate drops, Subnautica gets promoted as one of the best games in existence. Recently it made the number eight spot for PC Gamers top 100 games on Steam.  No mention of the poor optimization,  studders or random textural pop-in.

The Good

Now let me be clear. Is Subnautica a fun game? The short answer is yes.  Is Subnautica a beautiful rendered game world? Yes it is.  It has great visuals and territory to explore at your own pace.  Love games like this.  We call these sand boxy or open-world type games.  Subnautica solely an open world game though because it does follow a story if you wish to progress in the game and upgrade your equipment. (Although there is a free build and explore mode in the menu)

The Not-so-good

And yet after the glowing reviews have settled down one cannot ignore the seemingly random frame drops and studders regardless of the graphic settings one chooses.  I tested this out too. After 40 hours of game-play I chose low, medium and high graphical settings and I got the same result–random studdering at various locations with a mix of random  low and high frame-rate each time.  Load the game again and the studdering would occur in a different place than the previous time I played.  Why?  I hadn’t changed anything.

Another twist

Subnautica also has another (albeit most likely unintentional) feature most people might not realize.  Intentional or not, Subnautica might just well share some allegorical tones with Christianity.  Let’s take a closer look.

Important to note: What follows contains spoilers

Subnautica is an underwater survival game in which you, the player, have crash landed on an alien planet.  The planet is filled with alien sea creatures–some scary and some cute and friendly while others are downright deadly.

In a similar way, the earth we live on is filled with people, some of which are hostile to others, mean and outright murderous.  And still many people are genuinely nice, friendly and trustworthy.  For a Christian, we know the hostility many face is because of our simple belief and trust in the God of the Bible—namely Jesus Christ.

Infected

Within Subnautica a bacterium (known as the Kharaa bacterium) has infected the planet’s inhabitants, alien life, including you the player, and apparently has become part of the ecosystem of the make-believe planet known as Planet 4546B.

In Genesis from the Bible we learn that the day Adam and Eve disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden, sin entered our world and has infected all of mankind.  (Sin in our world is the breaking of God’s law (the Ten Commandments)).

In Subnautica the primary goal’s are to find a cure for the Kharaa bacterium and ultimately leave the planet (since it’s not your real home).

Today, the world needs a cure for sin otherwise they will be facing God on Judgment when they die without their sin fixed and taken care of.  To the Christian, earth is not a permanent home because heaven is our ultimate hope.

Deliverance

In Subnautica, the planet’s inhabitants need a savior–someone to rescue it from the doom it is facing.  You the player, also need to be rescued.

In real life, we each find ourselves (whether we admit to it or not) in far worse predicament.  Since God is holy and perfect He cannot have sin in his presence which means no sinful person can be in His presence without being consumed by His judgment.  Sort of like a dry leaf being consumed by fire. And as a good judge must punish a lawbreaker God must deal with our breaking His laws. God being just and righteous means He must punish sin wherever it is found. Ever broke God’s law?  Let’s see.  Ever lied?  Stolen something? Hated someone?  God views human hatred as murder.  Lusted? Jesus said to look with lust is the same as adultery (see Matthew 5:28).  Ever used God’s name as a cuss word? Hitler and Muhammad names are not even hated as much to be used as a cuss word.  To use God’s name to express disgust is blasphemy.  The point is, we All have sinned by breaking God’s perfect holy law and need someone who hasn’t sinned to save us from judgment in hell.

In the game Subnautica, a rescue attempt is made by the spacecraft Sunbeam. As the Sunbeam descends onto the alien planet it is immediately destroyed, killing all the crew on board.

To me this valiant attempt at rescue by the Sunbeam could be looked as in similar terms as current world religions and people groups who try to persuade people to believe anything but what is true about God, the Bible and Jesus.  They come with a message full of a different Jesus or no Jesus at all the results are the same—it’s all done in the effort to deny, suppress or ignore who God really is and the reality of our sinful offense against God Himself.

Hope

As there should be in any great game, there is a hope in Subnautica but it has nothing to do with God, Jesus or the Bible.  A large sea creature called the Sea Emperor and something known as Enzyme 42 is where you will find this hope. The Sea Emperor is the only source of Enzyme 42 and ends up dying while her young hatch and save the planet (and you).  They hold the cure to saving the infected planet.

In real life, God is the only one who can save mankind from coming judgment against sin.  God paid the penalty of our breaking His law through Jesus Christ.  Jesus, God manifest in the flesh, took the punishment for sin by dying on a cross.  While we cannot fully understand God’s sacrifice for our sin or what He went through and the love He has for us (since He’s God and we’re not) we do know he rose again after three days.  Jesus’ in completing the payment for sin was raised from the grave which ultimately  demonstrated His love for all who believe in Him. So Jesus defeated death (punishment in hell), sin and judgment for all who repent and trust in Him.  Do you know where you are going after you die?

 

He was despised and forsaken of men, A man of sorrows and acquainted with grief; And like one from whom men hide their face He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.
Surely our griefs He Himself bore, And our sorrows He carried; Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, Smitten of God, and afflicted.
But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, And by His scourging we are healed.
All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on Him.   (Isaiah 53:3-6)

Don’t Assume We Know the Basics

What is sin?

What is sin? You might say it’s doing something bad.   What “bad” is to me most certainly doesn’t mean the same thing to someone with another worldview.  Without some independent standard for right and wrong it could be considered a broad statement to try to pin down in practical terms.   But if we can get specific about what sin is there can be no debate.  (Of course people might try but it ultimately won’t be a debate with me.)

So what is it? Simple put, sin is transgression or the breaking of God’s Moral Law.

The Ten Commandments is the standard God uses to define what is evil (or bad).  It’s not a standard made any human with imperfections or fallibility.   God’s standard for right and wrong is perfect because God is perfect.

Here’s a quick sample of the “test” God will use to measure the worthiness to enter His presence.  How will you do? (Remember God requires perfection to enter His Kingdom. More on this later)

Always put God first in your life? (1st, 2nd commandments)

Ever lied? (9th commandment)

Stolen something?  (8th commandment)

Hated someone?  God views human hatred as murder. (6th commandment)

Lusted? Jesus said to look with lust is the same as adultery (see Matthew 5:28). (7th commandment)

Ever used God’s name as a cuss word? Hitler’s and Muhammad’s names are not even hated as much to be used as a cuss word.  To use God’s name to express disgust is blasphemy.  (3rd commandment)

What is love?

Before I get back to sin and God’s standard let’s switch gears for a moment.  It’s probable you have heard much or at least some about God’s love or that Jesus loves you.  There are bumpers stickers, shirts, signs, posters, and more with the words God love you!   But have you ever wondered what that really means what that actually looks like practically speaking?  We know love can mean different things to different people and with an “anything is acceptable” mentality in today’s world becoming increasingly more popular, love might mean something unnatural, non-traditional or both—think gay marriage.  Perhaps love to you is that great care and concern you have for your child or a friend or parent.  Maybe it’s plain old romantic love, traditional or not, that comes to mind.

But what about the love of God.  I will admit I still have struggles completely pinning down God’s kind of love when all I can relate to is human kinds of love with all its imperfections and inconsistencies it might bring with it.

Yet, I will attempt to sum up a small picture of what God’s love really looks like by showing you a glimpse (an important glimpse) of who God is.

I mentioned earlier about sin that is when we break the Ten Commandments.  The Ten Commandments aren’t the sin, it’s the breaking of them.  Lying for example.  Adultery, Murder. Not loving God and putting Him first in our life.  A quick look at The Good Person Test shows we have all broken God’s moral law.

God, because He is so holy and perfect, cannot have sin in His presence.  He therefore, because of His very nature or essence being that of holiness, must punish all lawbreakers. Hell exists for lawbreakers/sinners by the way.

And yet God did something indescribable even when we all deserve eternal death also know as judgment in hell.

God made a way of escape.  The Creator of the Universe namely Jesus Christ paid the penalty as the perfect sinless sacrifice for us breaking His moral law.  He did this by dying willing for our sins on a cross and taking the full punishment and anger by God put on Himself. Because God hates sin so much, the Bible states that Jesus was crushed for our iniquity/sins.   And then Jesus because He is God was raised up from grave after three days proving His earlier claims to be God and defeating eternal death.

The Bible states it like this,

“In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation [acceptable payment or sacrifice] for our sins. (1 John 4:10)

 “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”  (Romans 5:8)

The kind of love which God shows us is that He can be the only Savior from certain doom, is the perfect sinless sacrifice and ultimately the only salvation for those who repent and put their trust in Him as the Savior.

It’s important to clarify only two options exist for humanity.  After we die physically each person will enter either eternal life or eternal death.   God in His mercy has loving granted us a choice even when what we all should be getting or deserve is eternal death (judgment in Hell).

When you repent from your sin (turn from it as in changing your mind about committing sin) and trust in Jesus Christ alone to save you from the wrath to come (judgment against sin), you will have eternal life! (John 3:36Titus 3:4-7Ro 6:23)

 

“When the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared,
not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior,
that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.” (Titus 3:4-7)

Have you seen it? Audacity is a movie you don’t want to miss out on watching

If you haven’t heard about it, there is a great film out that tackles some highly controversial issues within society today.   Without spoiling the movie, a central issue confronted in the movie is homosexuality.  This film does not gloss over the issues involved which I find refreshing especially in a day where being political correct is on so many of our minds.   It also features the best news one can ever know.  You will not want to miss Audacity and please share it with others.

P.S. I recommend watching Audacity in fullscreen mode

The ‘Graphic’ Face of Islam

face_of_Sharia

It’s not really difficult to know about what Islam is and Sharia Law.  Most people know about its evil but choose to ignore, deny it or both.  Yet, simply follow Muhammad’s life and see what he did.  Muhammad’s life was marked by violence and disregard for human life.  This image,  straight out of current events, is graphic but it is the face and reality of what Islam is and specifically Sharia Law.

This article says this action by Iran is “shocking”.  But is it really? It shouldn’t be when we know the face of Islam.

See for yourself.

The Allegorical Similarity of Subnautica and Christianity

subnautica

Could Subnautica share some allegorical tones with Christianity in our world today?  Let’s take a look.

Important note: This post contains spoilers

Subnautica is an underwater survival game in which you, the player, have crash landed on an alien planet.  The planet is filled with alien sea creatures–some scary and some cute and friendly while others are downright deadly.

In a similar way, the earth we live on is filled with people, some of which are hostile to others, mean and outright murderous.  And still many people are genuinely nice, friendly and trustworthy.  For a Christian, we know the hostility many face is because of our simple belief and trust in the God of the Bible—namely Jesus Christ.

What Lego City Undercover Has Proven

lego-city-undercover

Lego City Undercover is an extremely lite GTA style open-world game for computers and consoles that proves it is possible to make a popular family friendly open world game that is still fun but without profanity, prostitution and excessive gore.  In addition to this, the main playable character in Lego City Undercover is a police officer.  Yep.  That’s right, you play as a cop (Chase McCain) and actually have lots of fun and adventure in the process.

There are many fans of GTA that will always defend what it is. They will say it would never be possible for a similar game to exist that could be as fun unless the profanity, gore and prostitution exists.  I have long believed however that this claim could be proven wrong if only the game existed.  (By the way, I believe it’s actually the profanity and prostitution that is being defended from GTA games rather than the exploration of the beautifully rendered game world.

Enter Lego City Undercover

Lego City Undercover nearly achieves the objective of “fun to explore”.  Note I said nearly.  The world of Lego City has adventure and extensive exploration including flying helicopters but remember, the vehicles, aircraft and characters are made of computer generated Legos.  There is no blood and gore here just broken Lego bricks which is fine for what it is.  The sandbox open world style of Lego City Undercover is fun to explore even for adults like me but imagine if this world was not Legos but was a living breathing world complete with realistic looking people and vehicles.  (Imagine if there was an actual train horn for the trains…. something Lego City Undercover is inexplicably missing.)

If Lego City Undercover wasn’t made with Legos

I believe the concept and story found within Lego City Undercover is brilliant and should be developed into a realistic looking game world.  Even though Lego City Undercover is amazingly fun as it is with Legos, a realistic looking version of it (including a working train horn for the trains) would create a whole new game for me (and others) to play and completely accomplished without prostitution, profanity and excessive gore.

Will we ever see a cleaner GTA looking kind of game?  As of this post, one game to keep your eyes on is Police 1013 currently in development.

Would you be interested in a family-friendly version of Grand Theft Auto?

Vlc_2013-08-15_08-23-01-13

The question was once raised, “Would you be interested in a family friendly version of Grand Theft Auto?”

And my response is, absolutely.  By now, there are mods available which turn GTA games including GTA 5 into a similar family friendly gaming experience.  Yet I believe there is money to be made for any game company/developer who developed a GTA 5 style open world game without the extensive profanity, sex and violence (specifically against others) which GTA games are known for.  Essentially it could be GTA 5 lite.  This game would feature the same map, same natural environment including AI traffic but different gameplay options.  Police patrol? Yes. Catch bad guys? Yes.  Cause explosions? Sure.  Fly?  Drive?  Run? Yes, yes and yes.

In-game options are always good

Another option would be for Rockstar games to include a filter(s) within their games.  Simple on or off options for language.  Street dialogue profanity on/off.  Assassin’s creed Black Flag includes a similar option to remove blood.

We already see games which feature beautiful scenery but do not focus on swearing, sex and violence at every turn.  The CREW Wild Run is a perfect example.  However, The CREW only features a driving mode.  No running, walking, doing police patrols, exiting your car, etc.  In fact you can’t get out of your car at all.

Just Cause 2 is another example of a great open world game without sex and extensive swearing. In fact, the swearing can be virtually eliminated by lowering the volume for dialogue.  However, Just Cause 2 does not feature a modern American style city nor a map or vehicles like GTA 5.  Additionally, there is a lot of violence in Just Cause 2 (explosions and commando style shooting)—against the bad guys.

Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption outside of missions doesn’t even feature all the sex, violence and swearing one can find in GTA 5.  Red Dead Redemption isn’t available for a PC nor does the map feature a modern American-like city.  In fact, RDR is a western game.

An open world game that virtually eliminates swearing, sex and allows the player assume the role of a good guy or as a cop will get my business.

At this point I will note the mod for GTA 5 called LSPDFR. LSPDFR is a police mod essentally allowing the player become a cop in the GTA 5 world.   The trouble with mod’s is how they cause GTA games to crash.  In the meantime, I will be waiting for a permanent solution to LSPDFR or even the family friendly mod for GTA 5.  Is Police 10-13 going to be that game?

 

Would you like to see a GTA 5 family friendly version or similar?

Republicans say Merry Christmas with a gift while Democrats remain grinches

bow-1294066_1280

The Republicans in Washington led by President Trump were finally able come through on a promise to give back to the American people. And what exactly was this promise to give back?  Our money of course.  This will come as a welcome relief for many who pay taxes and give their hard-earned dollars day after day to the to government.  And yet there was some sad news buried in with this otherwise wonderful Christmas gift.  The fact that all of the Democrats sitting in Washington voted against tax cuts for the people is nothing less than a disgrace.  But it shouldn’t be surprising should it?

After all this is the same Democrat party who removed God from their party platform in 2012 and the same Democrat party who consistently defends Planned Parenthood and the outright murder of babies.  This Democrat party is the one who claims to be advocates for women and yet never calls attention to the abuse, slaughter and dishonor of Muhammad’s Islam perpetrated against women and humanity.  And let us not forget about the disgusting jokes, obscenities and obscene graphic material exploiting women that is produced on a daily basis by none other than Democrat city aka Hollywood.

So while hard-working Americans will enjoy a little tax bonus coming soon thanks to right thinking people in Washington, we must also not forget how much the Democrat party is hurting America and the world.

But there is still hope.  The greatest Christmas gift of all is here.
