Still, there are clues to the Christian purpose of the game. The most obvious is the name: Minecraft Alpha. This is of course a reference to Jesus' revelation that He is the Alpha and the Omega (Rev. 22:13). Also, the only animals in the game you can kill for food are pigs. This emphasizes the New Covenant with Jesus where we can now eat delicious ham -- a common ground we share with most Secularized people.

Hahahaha, oh man  :D

I am a Christian, and that is just pathetic  :D

That's obviously not a serious article, in case it wasn't apparent to you...

Isn't Sweden one of the most secular countries in the world, anyway?

It wasn't apparent to me, no. Seeing as there are a hell of a lot of Christians out there that would actually write something like this.
Are you sure its not a serious article?

This site is part of its web ring. I'm fairly sure it's not serious.

Hmm, it is indeed just a very straight-faced spoofing. However, it would not surprise me at all if serious articles were made about said topics on the website.
On another website, that is..

It's probably just a joke.

Remember that one about Spore?

Y'see, this is why we Christians can't have nice things.

I swear, it's almost (pardon my French) damn embarrassing. Why do they have to do things like this? Can't they just go to church like the rest of us? (Well, I suppose that's a little snarky [I'm Christian, but don't go to church :P])

They seem awfully knowledgeable of Bible passages. Maybe they actually are Christians having a little fun. It's not something I wouldn't do if the mood strikes me.
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.
