    There is killing, of course. It is a video game

    "There is killing, of course. It is a video game," he said. "But the basis of the game is spiritual welfare."


    "The reality is that our game perpetuates prayer and worship and that there is no killing in the name of God," said Troy Lyndon, the CEO of Left Behind Games Inc. who describes himself as a "follower of Christ."

    "After you kill somebody you need to recharge your soul points and to do that you need to bend down in prayer ... I think the message is extremely clear," said Clark Stevens, co-director of the advocacy group Campaign to Defend the Constitution.

    A spokeswoman said Wal-Mart would continue selling the game online and in stores where it expected demand.

    "Left Behind: Eternal Forces," is a teen-rated PC strategy game based on the wildly popular Left Behind Christian book series. Set in New York City after millions of Christians have been transported to heaven, its players are charged with recruiting, and converting, an army that will engage in physical and spiritual warfare with the Antichrist and his evil followers.
