Fortnite: Battle Royale by Epic Games is Satan’s latest attempt to lure young people into his service. The premise of the game is that a storm came along and rained down monsters on the earth, which went around devouring people and destroying society. It is the player’s task to find loot to construct forts and make weapons so that he can defend himself and his team from the next storm of monsters and rescue other survivors. You can play with others online and you get the choice of whether you want to be a constructor, soldier, outlander or ninja. Players are encouraged to make their teams as diverse as possible so that they will stand a better chance of survival, perpetuating the diversity-is-our-strength propaganda of the left. Here are six ways playing the game serves Satan’s ends.
1. It promotes idleness
Gamers are lazy. They indulge in mindless escapism when they should be out getting a job or doing chores around the house or praying or reading their Bibles. Idleness is the leading cause of poverty.
Pro 10:4 He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.
2 Thes 3:10b If any would not work, neither should he eat.
14 As the door turneth upon his hinges, so doth the slothful upon his bed.
15 The slothful hideth his hand in his bosom; it grieveth him to bring it again to his mouth.
16 The sluggard is wiser in his own conceit than seven men that can render a reason.
2. It encourages looting
In Fortnite, looting is the only way players can get the materials to build forts and make weapons. Instead of earning what they need, players simply take whatever they find without any regard for property rights or the fruit of others’ labor.
Ex 20:15 Thou shalt not steal.
“But it’s just a game,” I hear you say. Not so. The Bible tells us to think about pure and virtuous things.
Phil 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
You simply cannot obey this command if you spend hours every day playing this silly little game that requires you to think about nothing but looting and murder. Your time would be better spent reading the Old Testament.
3. It promotes the myth of climate change
In order to bolster support the failing theory of global warming, Fortnite presents an apocalyptic vision of the near future in which runaway climate change causes massive storms that rain down monsters on the world. God, however, has promised that the climate will not change. We need not fear rising sea levels. God has promised He will never again flood the earth.
Gen 8:22 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
8 Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it brake forth, as if it had issued out of the womb?
9 When I made the cloud the garment thereof, and thick darkness a swaddlingband for it,
10 And brake up for it my decreed place, and set bars and doors,
11 And said, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further: and here shall thy proud waves be stayed?
4. There were no white men in the trailer
People who play Fortnite are racist and sexist. They endorse the oppression of white men. In the trailer there is not a single white male to be found among the heroes. This is just another example of the gaming industry engaging in leftist political correctness and “positive discrimination”. Women are not heroes. Their place is in the home.
4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
5. It is addictive
Kids are playing Fortnite in class and late into the night when they get home. If you are addicted to something, you have made it your idol, your god. This makes the real God green with envy. He will tolerate no rival for your affection and attention.
Ex 34:14 For thou shalt worship no other god: for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.
6. It presents and unrealistic, unbiblical view of the apocalypse
One of the goals for the heroes or “good guys” in Fortnite is to rescue survivors of the zombie apocalypse. This makes a mockery of everything the Bible says about the end times. It undermines and cheapens God’s Word. Satan wants people to doubt the Bible, to think it’s silly. In reality, all the heroes, all the good guys of the world – that is, all the Christians – will be taken away, raptured, before God pours out His righteous judgement on the world (Rev 3:10; Mt 24:30-31; Lk 17:34-35). Then there will be seven years of tribulation (Dan 9:27) in which monsters will torment the survivors.
2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.
3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.
6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.
7 And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.
8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.
9 And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.
10 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.
11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.
But there will be no good guys left to rescue the survivors, who will simply be getting their just deserts anyway. Since the end times are coming very soon, as they have been for last 2,000 years, it will be the fate of all Fortnite players who survive the plagues, wars and other catastrophes prophesied in the Bible to be tormented by these locust-scorpions.
My message to Fortnite players is simple. Stop living a life of escapism and denial. Stop mocking God. Put down your silly little game and pick up your Bible and get on your knees before God in prayer. Instead of serving Satan in these six ways, serve God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength. He will accept nothing less if you want to escape eternal torment.
