ClassicRadar: GamesRadar vs Shirley Phelps-Roper

GR: My goal is to get you out to buy a new game or system today.

SPR: [Laughs] I’ll leave all that game buying to my children.

GR: You talk about all these people going to Hell. Gamers are no doubt aware of the consequences of this. Are you aware of what happens when there is no room left in Hell?

SPR: There’s no such thing as that. God is not running out of room in Hell.

GR: Wrong. The dead will walk the Earth. The way you guys talk, you make like it’s some exclusive party and no one gets to go to heaven but you.

SPR: First of all, when you say it’s "exclusive," that’s the language of the scriptures. That it is a remnant, a very small remnant, according toThe Election of Grace. You understand what I just said?

GR: Absolutely not.

SPR: it’s a remnant according to The Election of Grace. “Except the lord of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant,” we would’ve already been destroyed like Sodom and Gomorrah. Serious and sober stuff.

GR: So heaven is small?

SPR: No, I don’t believe heaven would be small, or even considered small. What it is - is awesome. It’s everlasting! Look: it’s bliss, it’s glorious. It’s, what I would think, everyone would be interested in doing. What’s most amazing about this is that you will put all that energy into those games, and thoughts about the games, and never stop to consider that if you would draw a line around this galaxy - you hear me? Galaxy - and you put a tiny little tic mark around that line, the tic mark is too big to be an accurate representation of your life on this earth compared to eternity. So you’re gonna invest all this time on something that’s vain, empty, nothing

GR: Hey, that’s not fair.

SPR: And that’s called the time on this Earth, instead of getting about the business of- like you mean it- serving God. It’s little, called a vapor… I’ve lived long enough that I can tell you without reservation - what are you, about twenty?

GR: Somewhere around there.

SRP: Yeah, you’re gonna look up and you’re going to be fifty. That is if the Lord wasn’t coming.

GR: Is He coming?

SRP: The Lord is coming.

GR: When’s He coming?

SRP: Shortly. So what you’ve got-

GR: Wait! Can you be more specific?

SRP: Of course you know I can’t be more specific. The scripture is very specific about that answer. “No man knoweth the day nor the hour when the Son of Man will return.” But what you do know-

GR: Can you make a guesstimate?

SRP: What you do know is that it’s going to be…

GR: Bloody!

SRP: Oh yeah. But besides that I’m talking about the signs of the times. [They’re] going to be very evident and easy to see. And Mathew: 24, Luke: 21, Mark: 13: Those places where the Lord Jesus Christ speaks to the conditions of things [and] when he’s going to return.

GR: Are you looking forward to the Apocalypse?

SRP: Oh, you couldn’t imagine how forward I look to it. Two things are going to happen shortly before your eyes. And the first one is the destruction of this nation.

GR: #1, Nation’s destruction…

SRP: And many more words... multiply [the]words.Or you can just get over there to Revelations: 18 and read those words. And then you’ll have a good idea of how that’s going to be.

GR: Revelations 18. That’s an address?

SRP: Only if you are Bible ignorant. But if you understand that there’s a last book of the Bible and it’s called Revelations, and there’s 22 chapters in it, and Revelations: 18 is a good description of what this nation is headed for shortly.

GR: Is there a map inside so I can tell where everything is taking place?

SRP: The destruction of doomed America is going to be taking place in doomed America.

GR: You’ve called you organization “The Evil Angels” and that sounds like an awesome Counter-Strike clan or WarCraft guild.

SRP: It is awesome. And that is the game I play, buddy. It’s called running around this country as fast as I can sowing seed. We did that quietly, while you weren’t paying good attention. And now it’s been done. And what we did, what we accomplished, was made an unencumbered path for the Wrath of God to come flowing in. And it’s daily. Just daily. Daily!

GR: Daily…

SRP: Did you see what they dubbed in the media last week “The Wrath of God” that swept through the heartland? Killing in excess of sixty people, ninety-four-plus tornados. Those things are called “The Whirlwind.” “God has his way in the Whirlwind and it falls grievously upon the head of the wicked.” It’s called His Glory! He says, “You know me by the judgments that I execute on the Earth.” And it caused the apostle Paul to say, “Our God is a consuming fire.”

GR: [Sigh] What do we do until then? Is there any hope?

SRP: Not with that blase-blase goofy attitude, there’s not. If you have an interest in your never-dying soul, you’ll get about the business of getting to the bottom of what your duty is. And that means that you’ll be searching those scriptures everyday. The time you’re spending on all that gaming, you should be spending getting a clue! I don’t know who raised you, but you can write it down and take it to the bank: They hate you. They would’ve taught you what the Lord Your God requires of you. If they didn’t teach you that, then they give evidence of their hatred towards you.

GR: Okay… getting back to games. How do you feel about sexuality in games?

SRP: Yeah, yeah. Why wouldn’t you do that? Why wouldn’t you have your filthy sex deeds piled up in your games? You have them everywhere else!

GR: So I’m guessing you haven’t played Mass Effect at all.

SRP: Of course not.

GR: You actually get to court somebody and build up to a physical relationship-

SRP: Forget that courting nonsense.

GR: People were making the ability to engage in sex a big to-do in the news.

SRP: Well, I don’t know why that would be upsetting to anybody in doomed America?

GR: Yeah, me neither.

SRP: Why should that be upsetting to anyone in doomed America? That’s their standard! That’s their manner of life. Who made that game?

GR: BioWare.

SRP: No, I’ll tell you who they were. They were the children of doomed America. Who were taught rebellion against the standards of God, and that God is a liar. So why would these teachers of that rebellion give a rat’s ass if you do what they taught you to do?

GR: It’s a great game. I just wanted you to play it…

SRP: I believe it’s perfectly on par with what this nation is taught.
