Would Jesus play video games? Would he shoot people?

Here's an interesting article from the LA Times talking about how new video games are coming out which attempt to have a "spiritual" or Christian message in them. Will kids actually want to play them? We'll see. However, the better answer is that parents should get their kids away from the TV and into reading, sports, playing outside, music, SOMETHING....

Also involved in this discussion is how can a "shooter game" (a game where kids are trying to kill one another) be a "Christian game"...that is what they are trying to do with this "Left Behind" themed are trying to kill the armies of the anti-Christ. Does that fit into the just war category?!? Here are some screen shots from the "Left Behind" game....
