http://www.playthebible.com – Great Words! Great Characters! Great Fun!
In this multicultural world of many religions, people are often disenchanted by the idea of religion – it is often associated with politics as an important topic not to discuss with a friend unless you want to start a debate – because everyone has their own ideas about matters of faith. Throughout history, many wars have been started in the name of religion.
But people of nearly all faiths agree on one thing – JESUS lived a remarkable life. He lived what he taught, that we should 1) love God with all our heart, and 2) we should love our neighbor as ourselves. Jesus didn’t teach that we can choose to ignore God because we don’t care. And he didn’t say we can choose not to love someone because of how they act or how they live. He set a golden standard that can provide the world peace, if we follow his command.
The Bible today is made up of two sections – the Old Testament – original Hebrew texts (written before Jesus), and the New Testament – (mostly written after Jesus lived). According to Jesus, he came to fulfill prophecy as written in the Old Testament. The New Testament chronicles how he fulfilled more than a hundred of these prophecies.
And since Jesus, the Bible as we now have it was formed and has become the most widely distributed book in the history of the world.
Play The Bible was designed to introduce a new generation to the text of the Bible, and do so in a format that can more aptly compete with today’s entertainment focused world. Presently, the game is more than 90% complete and those Beta testing are reporting that it is already providing hours and hours of fun.
At RD Games, we sincerely hope that everyone who gets Play The Bible will have a great time and be blessed with its enduring message which has stood the test of time.
The objective of this game is to help kids and adults alike to enjoy this interactive biblically-themed entertainment intended for mobile users while learning many things about the Bible and God’s word. Play The Bible has a wide array of elements that are just as enjoyable as any Android or iOS mobile games that billions of people love to play on their mobile devices. The game includes tile color to word matching (a new concept), multiple choice questions, character biographies of some of the most popular Bible characters, wisdom breaks and more! The game even includes famous Bible films for people to discover more about the Bible, its important characters, history and the Gospel!
The developers at RD Games felt that the changing landscape of our modern society’s technological infrastructure has left cyberspace devoid of God’s ever-helping hand – especially in the area of smartphone apps. While there are Bible apps and other Christian-related apps available, there are only a handful of game apps that attract the majority of mobile web users. There are also some Bible-based games that are not very entertaining or are not offered with a wide variety of selections – and therefore, unable to retain the user’s attention long enough for them to adequately learn the good news of Jesus Christ.
Play The Bible hopes to change that paradigm and expose the new generation of mobile app users – who are not big on traditional means of evangelism – to God’s word, the Bible. Most people don’t associate learning God’s Word and reading it with fun.
Why we also Need to Evangelize in Today’s Tech Space
In the past, rival religions, cults, atheism, the night life, money and other vanities would compete with or get in the way of missionaries and ministers to spread God’s word. Today’s modern environment is like all of those things have been placed in a huge box, teleported into tech space and then kept under digital lock & key. The gap of reaching out to the masses in order to share the Gospel has completely been reversed thanks to the tech space of mobile web, and slowly people are losing touch with the voice of God as they focus in on their mobile devices to vanity with no end.
Now, missionaries and pastors can go anywhere on the planet, but they’d be walking through a dense forest filled with wild beasts if they try to share God’s word on a mobile app store, because let’s be honest, how many people will download an app that’s just going to narrate the Bible to them? If they are to grab the attention of kids and other people who are acquainted with the internet and mobile apps, then they must compete based upon rules defined by these new platforms. And Play The Bible is an answer to that conundrum.
How’s the 10/40 Window? Evangelism may need a Version 2.0 Update Soon
In the 1990s Christian Missionary Strategist and Partners International CEO, Luis Bush, coined the term “10/40 Window” which is a part of the world that the Gospel of Jesus Christ hadn’t been preached. This area is located between 10 and 40 degrees north of the equator which includes the eastern hemisphere, plus the European and African part of the western hemisphere. Today, Christian missionaries have successfully infiltrated even the remotest regions of the world as well as those countries with extremely strict Islamic laws like Saudi Arabia. And almost everyone has heard of the Gospel at least once, and have been given a Bible more than once, too!
However, the last frontier that the Bible needs to be preached isn’t even on the map, but is in cyberspace and in handheld devices called smartphones and tablets. Play The Bible is the perfect tool to be used for spreading the Gospel to billions of users worldwide! It is not only educational but also fun to play with and kids won’t be shy to share the Gospel in this manner, because it appeals to all kids and most adults as well. We here at RD Games are confident that Play The Bible will be a game changer in the field of mobile apps in terms of evangelizing and we also hope that other Christians around the world will follow suit.
