Jesus: "Love your Enemies" Religious Right: "Lock and Load"

At first I assumed this was a prank but apparently it's serious! (The graphic is a spoof, I should add.)

In "Left Behind: Eternal Forces," a violent video game marketed by one of the executives at Pastor Rick Warren’s Purpose Driven Life business empire, Christian children are taught that violence against non-believers is not only acceptable, it’s fun

A top aide to mega-church pastor Rick Warren is advising the makers of a children's video game in which characters kill New Yorkers while shouting "Praise the Lord." When children tire of converting or killing New Yorkers, they can switch sides and command the demonic armies of the AntiChrist, and kill the conservative Christians.

The real-time strategy game, slated for release in October 2006, is based on the best selling series of Left Behind novels by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins.

Isn't this evidence enough to declare the Religious Right heretical and apostate?

Matthew 5:43-48 (New International Version)

Love for Enemies

43"You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' 44But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
