The  game Five Nights at Freddy’s is a horror game that was released on August 8th, 2014. No, this game is not based off of Freddy’s Steakburgers and Custard. And no, it is not based off of Freddy Krueger. Five Nights at Freddy’s takes place at Freddy Fazebear’s Pizzeria. This is a spinoff of Chuck E. Chesse’s but you’re not there during the day. You’re there at night. Why? Because there have been alleged reports of the animatronic characters wandering around at night and killing the guards in the game.

Hang on! The Bible tells us to not kill people.

Exodus 20:13 You shall not murder.

The goal of the game is to survive the night from the animatronics who are closing in and wanting to kill you.

Ever since this game was released, five more versions of this game have been launched. The game has become increasingly popular.

How was this concept conceived? Well, the creator Scott Cawthon, had been creating more kid-friendly games such as Chipper & Sons Lumber Co. when he saw a rating that said one of the characters looked like a “scary animatronic animal”. He (Cawthon) then thought that he could create an even scarier, more demonic concept. And, the crazier thing is, he claims to be a Christian! What sort of Christian makes horror games?!

The Bible tells us to stay away from evil!

1 Thessalonians 5:22 Abstain from every form of evil.

 

Now to explain the evil, in the first game, the man on the phone talks about an incident called the “Bite of ‘87”. This is where an animatronic murders a child. In the fourth game, it is revealed that a child is shoved into the animatronic’s mouth by bullies.

Woah! God tells us the punishment for child sacrifice is death!

Leviticus 20:2 Say to the people of Israel, Any one of the people of Israel or of the strangers who sojourn in Israel who gives any of his children to Molech shall surely be put to death. The people of the land shall stone him with stones.

 

The “Purple Guy” in the game goes on a child killing spree. The souls of the children possess the animatronic characters.  They get their revenge on the “Purple Guy” by locking him in a suit. “Purple Guy” turns out to be the antagonist, Springtrap, in the third game. Springtrap is kept away with a tempting child’s recorded voice.

 

I could go on and on about these evils. But God wants us to think of better things than these evils.

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

God bless.

Trend Update: Gay Marriage, June 26, 2015

On Friday, June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court of the United States legalized gay marriage in all 50 states. All states are mandated to perform same sex marriages. All states must recognize same sex marriages that occur in other states.

The point of this post is not to lecture the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) population. Here, this topic is being approached with humility, respect, and grace. Condemning and hateful attitudes solve nothing. Harsh, ill feelings are barriers and obstacles to the good news of mercy and forgiveness that is Jesus Christ.

Here in the United States, we live in a culture and society that has elevated its civil law above God’s law. In regards to the gay lifestyle, our civil laws are different than how God views the topic. Our courts have spoken on the matter.

Next are God’s words. It is acknowledged, His words are offensive to segments of society. Eventually, His words are offensive to all of us if we are honest with ourselves. Please take your complaints and comments directly to Him. He will listen. He is a big boy. He can handle it.

Here is what God says.

God says in Leviticus 20:13 ‘If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltiness is upon them.

The Hebrew word for “lies” is shakab. It means to have sexual intercourse. Men having sex with men and women having sex with women is “detestable” or tow`ebah. God views this act as a disgusting thing or an abomination (Strong’s Concordance).

God is consistent in thought in the Old Testament and the New Testament. The above Leviticus verse is not a one off. See also: Leviticus 18:22, 1 Corinthians 6:9, Romans 1:26-28.

Deuteronomy 22:5 A woman shall not wear man’s clothing, nor shall a man put on a woman’s clothing; for whoever does these things is an abomination to the LORD your God.

Likewise, God sees crossdressing as tow`ebah or detestable or disgusting.

God states that marriage should be between a man and woman from the beginning in Genesis. See also 1 Corinthians 7:2 But because of immoralities, each man is to have his own wife, and each woman is to have her own husband.

As a friend of mine stated, gay marriage is a legal, civil right granted by the Supreme Court of the United States. Gay marriage is not a covenant relationship ordained or sanctioned by God. See Ephesians 5.

We are called to love one another. Galatians 5:14 For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement, “YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.” The Greek word for “love” is agape. Per Strong’s Concordance agape means: to welcome, to entertain, to be fond of, to love dearly. This love is the nature of God.

It does not matter if one steals, lies, commits murder, covets, or whatever. There are no “shades of grey” when it comes to sin. There is not a sliding scale for sin. One sin is not more condemning than another. If you break one, you break them all. James 2:10 For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles in one point, he has become guilty of all.

As individuals, it is not our place to judge others regardless of their actions. Every person on the planet has a lifestyle issue that can be taken to task. Judgment belongs to God. James 4:12 There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the One who is able to save and to destroy; but who are you who judge your neighbor?

We are all in need of sin remission. Every single one of us is a sinner. We all have sin in our lives. Ecclesiastes 7:20 Indeed, there is not a righteous man on earth who continually does good and who never sins.

And this is where the grace of Jesus enters the scene. Christ loves us ALL in spite of our actions whatever they may be. He paid the penalty for sin. For those who believe, He has paid the fine for sin.

1 Peter 3:18 For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit…

Romans 6:10 For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God.

Hebrews 9:28a so Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many…
