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.

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)

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.

Revisiting Target’s Transgender Policy and this Hot-button Issue

It’s hard to believe it has been nearly a whole year since Target’s transgender policy and boycott beganThat was then.  This is now.

UPDATED 10/19/17

The following story is as disturbing as it is disgusting and definitely not for anyone who would rather ignore the truth.

Now take a look at what happens when people allow the transgenders to pretend to be something other than what God has created them.

 

My original post continues below


Yes, Target was my favorite store until management decided to advocate for men entering the women’s bathroom.   Many believe a boycott is ineffective and I believe it might be in terms of  deeply “hurting” the merchant’s bottom line.  However as a matter of conviction, for me not shopping at Target has been a public statement proclaiming a disagreement in an anti God store policy.   Target’s bathroom policy of course puts kids in danger of perverted men masquerading as women but most importantly it is a sin against God.    Yes, a surgery or surgeries to the human body and manipulating hormones does not change what God has already ordained from birth.  We all know this to be true but as the CEO’s of Target are proving, many will try to pretend it isn’t so and that God is not in charge.

I first posted about the Target boycott here.  Now consider another post of mine.

I suggest a better way of reaching Target and anyone is to start by watching a movie called Audacity.   If you haven’t watched it already check it out here.

Someone in top management of Target made the decision to allow men to use the woman’s bathroom and vice versa.  Many people agree with this and because it’s sin (see the Good Person Test) against God what needs to happen is a change of heart.   Do boycotts change hearts?  No.   Who changes hearts?  God.

Headed for Hell

People at Target or not are all headed on a path to hell because of crimes against a holy God.   Yes, (there’s a long list) and we’re all doomed unless there’s a way of escape.     See the good person test.     There is hope however and it’s not man-made. God through Jesus Christ is the only escape and Savior from hell and judgment to come.   Are you ready?

Let’s get the word out about this movie.   If you work at Target or anywhere share it with your co workers, family and friends.    And top CEO’s at Target, have you watched Audacity yet?

Twitter Attempts to Hide the Ugly Truth About Abortion

 

smartphone-586944_1280

In a not surprising move by Twitter, the social media giant tries to suppress the truth about abortion. While most everyone already knows abortion is nothing less than cold-blooded murder of billions of babies, not everyone would like you to know.  The latest case by Twitter to hide this gruesome reality was seen when Republican Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn posted a campaign video about Planned Parenthood’s practice of abortion. In her campaign ad, she boldly states, “I’m 100% pro-life. I fought Planned Parenthood, and we stopped the sale of baby body parts — thank God.”

The details were clear about the disgusting reality that abortion is and Twitter blocked her video.  In a statement made by Twitter they said, “the sale of baby parts” was “deemed an inflammatory statement that is likely to evoke a strong negative reaction.”

And of course it should evoke a strong negative reaction. Abortion is the gruesome practice of murdering babies.  What could be more ugly and offensive than the murder of the innocent?

The question is why would Twitter block the truth? Is it that Twitter along with other large media outlets, actually believe murder is okay? After all, they have gone to great lengths to defend Planned Parenthood in the past.

Now if the Twitter CEO’s had a strong moral compass, I would expect a strong statement speaking out against the ugly practices of Planned Parenthood with abortion, along with any murder of innocents. God hates murder. Remember, the command “You shall not kill.”  Maybe that is also why so many people today hope God’s commands and His messengers would disappear.

” If our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing,
in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.” 2 Corinthians 4:3-4 (NASB)

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.
