Subnautica wins 2018 PC Game of the Year

subnautica

It’s no secret that Subnautica is a popular game but is there more to this game than alien creatures?

Could Subnautica share some allegorical tones with Christianity in our world today?  Let’s take a closer look at the game that won PC game of the year for 2018.

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.

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 but the results are the same. Their effort is 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)

10 Real (and Great) Reasons Why Nobody Should Ever Vote Democrat

1. God removed from party platform –  It’s true, the Democrat party officially removed God from their party platform in 2012 (this decision alone governs everything else the party does, will do or can deem to be acceptable and at any cost)

2. Pro Abortion – The left generally supports the murder of babies otherwise they couldn’t have adopted a party platform without God.  These two decisions are not mutually exclusive.

3. Pro Homosexual Marriage –  The left supports homosexual marriage which is in direct opposition to God’s view on the matter (yet another reason they had to remove God from their party platform)

4. Will advocate and fight for illegal immigration – The left is outraged when one seeks to keep America safe by upholding the law supporting legal immigration rather than illegal immigration

5.  Believe Christians are a greater threat than a religion which brutally murders and beheads people who don’t follow them–simply for believing in Jesus Christ

6. Will choose to lie, at any cost, in order to protect like minded candidates and government bureaucrats rather than doing what is right and seeking the actual truth of a matter (a perfect example was how Brett Kavanaugh was treated and because he is pro-life)

7. Believe Climate Change (global warming) is a greater threat than people who hate us, want to kill us or think it’s okay to murder babies

8. Hypocritical/False Care of and Protection of Women – Democrats actively support the abuse of women within Islam and refuse to stand up against it. Women in general and more specifically Conservative /Christian women (and men) who hold a Biblical worldview are ridiculed, and denigrated in a majority of popular Hollywood movies/TV shows. (The false claim Democrats care about women extends to the music world too. Profanity and vulgarities aimed toward women is commonly found in rap lyrics and is increasingly present within the pop music world)

9. Like with Christians, the hatred of Jews is growing – Generally speaking democrats do not advocate or speak up in support of the Jewish people. In fact, when Donald Trump moves the United States Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, he is mocked and ridiculed by the Left. When Donald Trump chooses to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, Democrats mock and ridicule him.  Democrats support countries such as Iran, who are hostile to Israel and have vowed to “wipe Israel off the map”.  Antisemitism within the Democrat party with those such as Louis Farrakhan and Rahm Emanuel is not condemned.

10.  Jesus Christ is hated so much by the LeftHis name is commonly misused, blasphemed and used as a cuss word to express disgust in many popular left controlled strongholds—Movies, Games (such as GTA and Rockstar specific titles, Hitman, FarCry, Assassins Creed,) modern day popular TV sitcoms, Democratic Television Networks (MTV, E!, Bravo, Tru, FX, FXX, CNN, MSNBC, TBS, NBC, ABC, CBS, TVland, to name a few),  and atheistic based YouTube content.

 

Remember it’s election day today!  If you support life, safety, and protecting our freedom from government tyranny, please vote Republican

1 Person You Can Trust

1. Jesus Christ

Jesus is the one person you can trust.  In fact, He is the only one who can provide peace with God and because He is God manifest in the flesh (God incarnate) He could pay (and satisfy) the penalty for our breaking God’s moral law (the Ten Commandments) and is therefore the only One who can save from coming judgment in hell.   

Do you know Him?

5 Good Reasons World Unrest Will Grow

unrest

1. We are rebellious people –  From birth we are against God and choose to go our own way.

2.  We have broken God’s law (the Ten Commandments)  (The Good Person Test demonstrates this well)

3. Sin separates us from God.

Starting in the Garden of Eden, our relationship and sweet fellowship we once had with God has been broken.

4. Further from God – As people get further from God, the more trouble there will be on the earth.

 

 5.  The Bible Predicts it –  What God says about the end times and His plan for salvation has been predicted in the Bible, whether we read His word or not.

Who is Jesus?

cross_banner

Who is Jesus?

Let us consider the following accounts during the time Jesus walked on the earth.
 
Jesus talking to the Jews said.. “I have come to you representing my Father, and you refuse to welcome me, even though you readily accept others who represent only themselves. You gladly honor each other, but you don’t care about the honor that comes from God alone. “ (John 5:43- 44)
 
”The Father and I are one” (John 10:30)
 
The high priest said to him, “I demand in the name of the living God that you tell us whether you are the Messiah, the Son of God.” Jesus replied, “Yes, it is as you say. And in the future you will see me, the Son of Man, sitting at God’s right hand in the place of power and coming back on the clouds of heaven.”
 
Then the high priest tore his clothing to show his horror, shouting, “Blasphemy! Why do we need other witnesses? You have all heard his blasphemy. (Matthew 26:63-65)
 
Jesus said to the man, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” “Who does this man think he is?” the Pharisees and teachers of religious law said to each other. “This is blasphemy! Who but God can forgive sins?” The Jewish leaders tried all the more to kill him. In addition to disobeying the Sabbath rules, he had spoken of God as his Father, thereby making himself equal with God.
 
 
The Jewish leaders replied“…you, a mere man, have made yourself God.” (John 10:33)
 
After reading the above passages, you may have realized many trends. I would like to draw your attention to a simple yet common theme. This particular theme stirred up many who listened to Jesus talk. The Jewish leadership and others sought to even kill Jesus because of it and eventually we know they did. But why such hatred for an apparently good man who healed, and even performed countless miracles? Why would simple statements and acts of kindness and love by Jesus cause the leaders to cry out “blasphemy!” from a simple statement by Jesus? We know the answer from the verses above.
 
Jesus claimed one thing that was clear to all who heard Him speak. Jesus made the claim to be God and this was obvious blasphemy to the Jewish leadership. Likewise, even today this remains true. This claim continues to be considered blasphemy by Jesus and/or anyone who claims to be God unless of course it is true and Jesus truly is who He says He is. Like the Jewish leaders, I am aware that many today choose to believe Jesus is not who He claims and yet are willing to accept the account of the life of Jesus. In fact, many might even consider Jesus to be a good teacher and one who would offer good advice.
 
For us this remains true. If we do not believe Jesus is God than no one can be able to trust anything Jesus says to be the truth. If you do not believe Jesus is who He claims to be, than how can one trust Him to have been even remotely a good teacher? The choice remains. Either Jesus is God and the Savior of the world with power to forgive sin or He is not. Your life depends on who you put your trust in. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6)

Never Forget September 11, 2001

A simple reminder.  There is evil in the world.  But there is hope.  We will never forget the tragedy and the innocent victims who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.

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)
