I was reading this week that video games such as Grand Theft Auto and Sims “now generate more income than all sporting events and all Hollywood movies.” I find this disconcerting that millions spends buckets of money to immerse themselves in a virtual reality. We can add the money spent on movies and television in this catagory as well. While we amuse away our lives in a virtual reality the truth (or real reality) is that we live in a lost world that desperately needs the gospel of Christ. Heaven and Hell are not a matter of opinion but eternal destinies that every human faces someday. Let’s clear through the fog of etertaining clutter that surrounds us and be people of truth.
