Left Behind: Eternal Forces is being called a Christian video game. I have problems with that on at least two levels.

Having a praying hands button that gives the player more power to kill the enemy and some text boxes with verses isn’t enough to qualify for a Christian label. My second problem is that the word Christian should be used sparingly as an adjective (i.e. values can be Christian, people can be Christian, but I don’t know how a video games, a store, a CD, etc. is Christian. Products and organizations can certainly have a Christian mission, but that mission isn’t created or accomplished by slapping down an adjective.
