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.

Modding GTA games

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.

Harvey Weinstein is the Face of Hollywood (and the left)

 

Harvey_Weinstein

 

If the name were Donald Trump instead of Harvey Weinstein we’d see a left-wing media and Hollywood frenzy of glee.  And why? Simply because they are hateful of God and love their immorality.  Hollywood elites have made a god to suit themselves which allows for such immorality.

However, this story isn’t about Donald Trump but rather Harvey Weinstein.

So what does Hollywood do in a case like this? Cover-up and cover-up some more. And even when the truth is revealed after years of cover-up, they attempt to cover-up their cover-up because their worldview dictates it.  Will Hollywood and the Democrat party ever come clean?

So who is Mr. Weinstein?  Publicly, he is a Hollywood big-wig mogul, Democrat party donor and producer.  And now we know Mr. Weinstein is none other than a sexual predator who used his power to manipulate and control people.  He is nothing less than a bully on a grand scale.  Unfortunately, because of who he is, much of his inappropriate acts of sexual abuse and harassment was ignored and probably landed on deaf ears.

Of course these are things many of us on the outside already know about the worldview of Hollywood and of the Left.  We know about their blatant defense of a religion that believes in honor killings, abuse and mistreatment of women.  We know about their hatred and antagonistic views toward Christians and Jews (namely due to their hatred of the God of the Bible). We know about the atrocious acts of murder seen in abortion which Hollywood defends publicly and in who they vote for.  And let us not neglect to tell about the content they endorse.  We see it everywhere–the sexual innuendo against women, vulgarities and immorality that permeates their TV shows, movies and games.   Yes, Hollywood and many on the left may want (and try) to deny this ugly reality but sooner or later the truth has a way of catching up.  When you least expect it, the Harvey Weinsteins of the world show up and expose the truth.

And yet, there is still time for us all to repent.

“These times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.” Acts 17:30-31

Las Vegas Shooter Paddock Didn’t Know or Fear God

sign_1-e1491266704672.jpg

 

While America is busy attempting to unravel and mentally sort the tragic and horrific shooting massacre that occurred in Las Vegas over the weekend, one fact remains: The Las Vegas shooter didn’t know God. This fact alone is one many people might rather ignore but its reality is undeniable and deeply important.  This may seem like a trivial matter to some but had this man Stephen Paddock believed in God by trusting in Jesus Christ for his salvation he wouldn’t have committed this heinous crime. This goes for anyone, at anytime.  What do I mean you ask?

 

good_evil

Are we seeking God?

First things first.  When it comes to the most important matter of life, simplicity without compromise is best.

Clearly the world is crumbling and falling apart. People are more and more seeking to break the law and do harm to others.  The Las Vegas shooting demonstrates more of the same.

However, God has spoken a stern warning to all who seek to ignore Him. We have all broken His Law (the Ten Commandments).  As lawbreakers or transgressors of the law we are all slaves of sin (doing evil).  Therefore we are all under a curse.  Sin clouds our minds and blocks our view (or a correct view) of God.  As a result we are self-seeking sin-filled creatures who are at enmity with the God of the universe.  We shoot, murder, lie and cheat.  In the Garden of Eden with Adam and Eve, our relationship with God was broken.

Sin is transgressing or breaking God’s law.


The Test

Here’s our biggest problem.  To enter heaven, God demands holiness, perfection and a sinless life.

Have you sinned?

Broken God’s commands? 

Are you willing to seek God? 

Have you ever lied? (9th commandment)

Stolen? (8th commandment)

  

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

 

Ever used God’s name as a cuss word to express disgust? (3rd commandment)

Hitler and Mohammed are not hated this much.
 

Lusted? Jesus said lust is the same as adultery of the heart.  (Matthew 5:27-28) (7th commandment)

 

These are just a few of the Ten Commandments. It’s evident we are all guilty of breaking God’s God’s law, the perfect standard for what is right and wrong.  Therefore since God is holy, perfect and He cannot have sin in His presence (Psa. 5:4, Hab. 1:13) we deserve His righteous judgment in Hell.


Only One Way of Escape

Therefore, we need a Savior–a way of escape from His judgment for sin.   (James 2:10) 

Our trying to keep God’s commands to enter Heaven or by doing good deeds is not “good enough” since God as the Judge of Universe and cannot be bribed. Because He’s Judge there is only one way in which God can provide this escape.  He must pay the penalty of our sins Himself.
God has to take our sins away for us to be cleared of wrong doing.
He sent His Son Jesus Christ–God manifest in the flesh–to die on a cross paying the penalty for our breaking His Law (Sin). (Ro. 5:8)
Jesus rose from the dead after three days defeating sin and death (the second death in Hell). (1 Cor. 15:3-4) (Revelation 20:9-15)
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)
This is known as becoming born again.
What a great incomprehensible love God has for us when we seek it!  (This is salvation)
“God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”   Romans 5:8

In Summary

 

1. God is holy and perfect

and He cannot have sin in His presence.

 (Psa. 5:4, Hab. 1:13)

 


2. We broke God’s Law  (Sinned against God)

God’s perfect standard, (known as the moral law or the Ten Commandments)

Have you ever lied?

Do you always put God first in your life?

Ever used God’s name as a cuss word to express disgust?

(Hitler and Mohammad are not hated this much.)

Lusted? Jesus said lust is the same as adultery of the heart.  (Matthew 5:27-28)

 

The more detailed test is linked here


3. We deserve God’s Judgment for breaking His Law

because of God’s perfection and holiness we deserve judgment in Hell for breaking His Law. (remember due to God’s holiness and perfection He cannot have sin in his presence)

 


4.  Good Works Are Not Good Enough

Trying to keep God’s commands or doing good things won’t work with God (God is the Judge – He cannot be bribed)

Only God can provide the way of escape (from His Judgment) since He is the Judge.


5.  We need a Savior–a way of escape from God’s judgment for sin.  (Salvation)  (James 2:10)

God the Father sent His Son Jesus Christ—God manifest in the flesh—to die on a cross paying the penalty for our breaking His Law (Sin). (Ro. 5:8)

Jesus rose from the dead after three days defeating sin and death. (1 Cor. 15:3-4)  Therefore the tomb is now empty.

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 (God’s judgment against sin), you will have eternal life! (John 3:36Titus 3:4-7Ro 6:23)

This is what it means to have salvation.


Final Thoughts

Just because Mr. Paddock did not have salvation in Jesus Christ and a relationship with Him doesn’t mean it’s too late for us.  We are all given a limited time on this planet.  You may not have tomorrow or another minute to seek out God.

If you would like a more detailed version of what I have posted about salvation please take the good person test.  Right now Bibles are plentiful in the United States.  (They even have them at Dollar stores!)  Please pick up a Bible and start reading in the book of John (or wherever God is leading you to start reading). Just start in His Word.  When you have questions seek out answers but don’t stop looking in God’s Word.

I am not a pastor (or even part of any church leadership) but a guy with struggles, faults and battles with sin who’s only desire is to point people the right way which is to know Jesus Christ.  If I can be of any help don’t hesitate to ask.

 

Thank you for reading this important post.

One Good Thing About Hurricane Irma

Irma_track


No, this isn’t a joke. Granted, there isn’t much good about a Hurricane when it hits the mainland but believe it or not I have found at least one good thing about Hurricane Irma.  The good news is this: the news media which includes but is not limited to CNN, MSNBC, NPR, Google, Yahoo and Microsoft won’t be leading their news cycles with fabricated fake news reports about Donald Trump, Russia or a rigged election.  Instead, as we saw with Hurricane Harvey, we will now be hearing and reading news about Hurricane Irma as it makes its way on to the mainland in Florida and up the west-coast.

Unfortunately, the media has sunk so low and has become so bankrupt in its quest for complete honesty and truthfulness in their reporting it has to take a Hurricane to interrupt the daily onslaught of misinformation and lies that spew from their left-wing media outlet centers. Nevertheless, a break in such reporting has occurred and it’s a welcome pause for truth lovers everywhere.

It’s August 21, 2017: “I don’t believe there is a Solar Eclipse”

backyard_eclipse_2017

“I Don’t Believe It”

I wanted to believe the Solar Eclipse of 2017 was real, but I couldn’t see it. Today August 21, 2017 there is expected to be a total eclipse of the sun by the moon but I’m not sure I believe it.  It’s not that I didn’t want to believe either.  I really wanted to see to the eclipse–I even brought my camera so I could show you. The trouble was that where I live the sky was overcast and the air carried a dull orange tint from nearby wild fires. I trust my eyes and I believe what I see. Perhaps you see what you believe. Yet, I scanned the skies in vain seeing only cloudy skies, fog and orange haze. Unless you count the fog, as far as I’m concerned there wasn’t any solar eclipse.

Do You Seek The Truth?

Of course if I should truly doubt the solar eclipse really happened, I don’t have to go far to find the truth.  In fact, according to eyewitness accounts there actually was a solar eclipse.  I even read about it online and saw some videos of what some eyewitnesses described as an “amazing” event. Some people say it was showing the hand of God. While others were simply awestruck.  Should I believe them? I don’t know these people. How do I know these accounts and videos aren’t fabricated or made up? But I still want to know if it’s all true and there is not a good reason not to believe there was actually a solar eclipse.

Many people don’t believe in the God of the Bible. Most often our preconceived worldviews get in the way of believing in Him.  Yet not like believing or not in the existence of an eclipse, many people hate or distrust the God of the Bible. Many of us by nature don’t want to hear what His word says about us.  Maybe you have been hurt by someone who claims to know God or know someone who has been. Perhaps there is great pain or trail in your life that hinders you from believing God.  I have battled things like cancer and depression and know about that kind of pain. Yet none of these things disprove that God is real. In fact it’s just the opposite.

Eyewitness Accounts

There are hundreds of eyewitness accounts and testimonies of the reality of God and who He is.  There are eyewitness accounts of Jesus and who He claims to be. Perhaps you have heard or know someone who has said they would believe in God of the Bible if He would only show Himself to them. The solar Eclipse did not show itself to me. Why should I still believe it was real?  I even went looking for it outside and did not see it with my eyes because there were clouds in the way.  Yet, does that mean it didn’t exist? Of course not. However I have a choice to make. I can choose to believe whether the eyewitness accounts of the actual event are true or not. Similarly, God has revealed Himself to us in His Word. Jesus Himself  has made claims about who He is and any person can freely examine these things to see if they are so. God will not hinder any person from seeking Him, if and when they choose to do so.

I suspect rather, any person who doesn’t believe in God is being hindered by their own selfish desires and lusts.  Simply put, they don’t to find God or God to find them. Sort’ve like a thief doesn’t want to find a police officer. That had been true for me in my life.

“Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near.” Isaiah 55:6

“The Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”  Luke 19:10

“Without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6

Are You Seeking God?

You know this, the world is crumbling and falling apart. People more and more seek to break the law and do harm to others.  However, God has spoken a stern warning to all who seek to ignore Him. We have all broken His Law (the Ten Commandments).  As lawbreakers or transgressors of the law we are all slaves of sin (doing evil).  Like the clouds blocking my view of the eclipse, sin blocks our view (or a correct view) of God.  As a result we are self-seeking sin-filled creatures who are at enmity with the God of the universe.

Here’s our biggest problem.  To enter heaven, God demands holiness, perfection and a sinless life.

Have you sinned? Broken God’s commands?  Are you willing to seek God?  To get started, try this quick test.

Have you ever lied? (9th commandment)
Stolen? (8th commandment)
  
Do you put God first in your life?  (1st, 2nd commandments)
 
Ever used God’s name as a cuss word to express disgust? (3rd commandment)
Hitler and Mohammed are not hated this much.
 
Lusted? Jesus said lust is the same as adultery of the heart.  (Matthew 5:27-28) (7th commandment)

 

These are just a few of the Ten Commandments. We are all guilty of breaking God’s perfect standard. But since God is holy, perfect and He cannot have sin in His presence (Psa. 5:4, Hab. 1:13) we deserve His righteous judgment in Hell.

One Way of Escape

Therefore, we need a Savior–a way of escape from His judgment for sin.   (James 2:10) 

Our trying to keep God’s commands to enter Heaven or by doing good deeds is not “good enough” since God as the Judge of Universe cannot be bribed. Because He’s Judge there is only one way in which God can provide this escape.  He must pay the penalty of our sins Himself.
 
He sent His Son Jesus Christ–God manifest in the flesh–to die on a cross paying the penalty for our breaking His Law (Sin). (Ro. 5:8)
Jesus rose from the dead after three days defeating sin and death (the second death in Hell). (1 Cor. 15:3-4) (Revelation 20:9-15)
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)
This is known as becoming born again.
What a great incomprehensible love God has for us when we seek it!
“God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”   Romans 5:8

Calling out the 7 politicians who have joined the Democrat Party to Protect the Swamp

1024px-Capitol-Senate

Seven More Obstructionists Vote to Protect the Swamp

There are seven Republicans politicians who have voted to preserve Obamacare.  These seven republicans are Senators Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn.; Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va.; Susan Collins, R-Maine; Dean Heller, R-Nev.; John McCain, R-Ariz.; Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska; and Rob Portman, R-Ohio.  These seven Senators have voted with Democrats to keep a failing system failing.  You may have heard that President Trump has likened Washington DC. to a swamp filled with corrupt political operatives who would rather keep their job than do what is right for Americans.  This swamp includes any person especially in a leadership role who will not stand up to defend the innocent, justice and God’s law.

Attempting to Remove God

It is no secret that Democrats do not believe in the protecting and defending of God’s law and biblical values.   Instead they don’t believe in defending the innocent but made the decision to  remove God from their party platform.  Simply put, modern-day Democrats believe in extreme government control, taking away biblical standards and replacing those standards with anything that is contrary to God.  The seven Republicans who have voted with the Democrats in obstructing Donald’s Trumps plan to move the country forward are really not Republicans.  We know they are Republicans in name only and it appears they are more interested in protecting the swamp and corrupt political climate of Washington, DC.

Accountability and Prediction

Any person, Republican or Democrat who will not vote to defend good policies which actually help Americans rather than hurt and make things worse does not deserve a place in government.   Simply put, we the people must ignore the party letter besides a political leaders name or even what they say but see how they vote.  The Democrat party has grown by at least seven members and unfortunately for Americans (and the world), will only prove to hurt Americans further.

The GTA 5, Donald Trump Conundrum

open-world

75 million plus people have played the game Grand Theft Auto 5.  Twenty-five million have purchased Grand Theft Auto 4. Judging from these numbers many people do not have a problem with the language vulgarities, excessive violence and disturbing sex that is featured in these games.  In fact to criticize these blatant gratuitous aspects of the game is asking for put-downs, name calling and more cursing from the criticizers themselves.

9296023134_3e48034e41

Enter Donald Trump.  I venture to say many of these same people hate or strongly dislike President Trump.  Why?  I do not know because it certainly cannot be for his offensive language, decisions, tweets, or even his personality.  Perhaps what is not liked is his desire for the restoration of law and order to our land after the lawlessness of the previous president.  Or perhaps what many of these millions of Grand Theft Auto 4 and 5 fans don’t like about Donald Trump is his moral stand to stop the murder of innocent babies.  Maybe still, what is so despised is Donald Trump’s relentless defense of the police and military while he seeks to uphold traditional Biblical values that our country was founded on.  Yep.  That must be it.  Show support and belief in Biblical values and the fan base of a game that glorifies vulgar behavior, rampant immorality and excessive violence against police will cry foul against you.  And it’s understandable because it’s exactly this kind of thing that Jesus said would happen over 2000 years ago (see John 15).  In the meantime, I will be looking for a game as massive in scale as Grand Theft Auto 5 with it’s beauty (scenery-wise) that instead glorifies the police and obeying the law.
