That’s right, you read the title correctly. A game that your children can play, free of homosexual, and sinful content. Maybe you’ve heard of it? The original game was released in 1986, titled “The Legend of Zelda” and although it was created by a foreigner, it has a hidden meaning behind it. The creator of the series is a faithful Christian, and through his ingenious marketing skills, encourages Christianity through more “electronic” means, reaching a worldwide audience in Asia, North America, and Europe. His intentions are only to save the evil gay foreigners he is surrounded with daily, a good, but seemingly hopeless cause.
Now onto the subject of this phoneminal game series, “The Legend of Zelda” is a multi-million dollar project, celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. The games are a biblical allegory, so please read carefully, as the creator has carefully hidden the Christian themes in the beginning to trick his fellow foreginers.
“Hyrule was formed many ages ago through the works of the three Golden Goddesses: Din the Goddess of Power, Nayru the Goddess of Wisdom, and Farore the Goddess of Courage (Allegory of God’s Divine Attributes). Before spirits and life existed, these three goddesses descended upon the chaos that was Hyrule. Din, with her strong flaming arms, cultivated the land, created the red earth, and was thus responsible for the creation of the geography of Hyrule. Nayru poured her wisdom onto the earth and gave the spirit of law to the world, bringing order to a formerly chaotic realm.; thus, she was responsible for the establishment of all the laws of this world (10 commandments). Farore, with her rich soul, created all life forms that would uphold the law established by Nayru (God’s creation of Man). When the labors of the three great goddesses were completed, they departed the world for heaven. It was in the Sacred Realm that the three goddesses left behind a symbol of their power, the all-powerful relic known as the Triforce, which when mastered in its entirety would grant the heart’s desire of its holder.”
Clever right? Here comes the plot of the actual game.
The whole Triforce could only be claimed by one pure of heart, and this would cause the Sacred Realm to become a paradise (a world without sin). But if that one’s heart is unbalanced, the Triforce would split into its three separate pieces, leaving only the piece representing the force in which that one most believes in hand and transforming the Sacred Realm into a world of evil (a sinful world). If that one who shattered the Triforce were to seek the true force to govern all, they would have to acquire the two lost pieces. The other two pieces would dwell within two people chosen by God, who would bear the symbol of the Triforce on the backs of their hands. The ancient Angels, fearing that the Triforce’s magic could be abused, crafted a sword infused with God’s magic resistant even to the Triforce itself. This weapon, the Blade of Evil’s Bane better known as the Master Sword, was capable of banishing evil and was reserved for use only by a hero in times of great need.
In these games, the Triforce was shattered by a great Demon man named Ganondorf or sometimes Ganon for short. The games generally revovle around these three recurring characters and storyline.
Zelda, the Princess of Hyrule and bearer of the Triforce of Wisdom.
Link, the Hero of Time, and Hero you play throughout the games, he is the bearer of the Triforce of Courage.
And Ganondorf, the harbringer of sin to Hyrule, he is a King of Thieves and a demon masked within a man’s body.
So in allegorical terms they follow as this:
Zelda is an Angel, and Martyr of Hyrule, she wishes to save those with good hearts, and bring good into the hearts of the damned. Notice her Angel like appearance.
Link is a “Chosen” Christian, he is given powers by God to defeat the minions of Satan.
Finally Ganondorf is obviously the Devil, or his farmiliar at the least. He is a red haired, long nosed, grey/greenish skinned demon, sometimes taking on the appearance of a Boar like beast.
The best game in the series so far was called “The Ocarina of Time” and due to its international success it has been remade with updated graphics and gameplay. But before that I wish to address a side note, in these games Link has “magic” like ablilities, but these are not “witchcraft” in the games Link often has to defeat a pair of twin witiches called “Twinrova”. His powers are given to him by the triforce, directly recieved from God! Ganon also has magic abilities, but his are evil, seeing as he is the Devil. But with Link’s “Light/Good” Powers, you can overwhelm Ganondorfs in every last game that you face him in.
Now onto a very Christian aspect of both “Ocarina of Time” (which I recommend you buy for your son or daughter) and other games.
Several houses of worship and temples exist in Hyrulean society. Hyrule has been known to have temples dedicated to each of several different elements, each with a caretaker Angel that is guardian of the temple. The most well known of these Angels are the Seven Angels: Rauru in the Temple of Light at the heart of the Sacred Realm, Saria in the Forest Temple deep within the Lost Woods, Darunia in the Fire Temple on Death Mountain, Ruto in the Water Temple deep beneath Lake Hylia, Impa in the Shadow Temple residing in the graveyard in the shadow of Death Mountain, Nabooru in the Spirit Temple far across the desert in the Desert Colossus, and Princess Zelda in the Temple of Time. The Temple of Time’s architecture also draws from Gothic cathedral architecture, and acts as the primary gateway to the Sacred Realm. The Earth Temple and the Wind Temple house the Angels whose prayers power the Master Sword and grant it the Power to Repel Evil
Several towns in “The Adventure of Link” have churches, and a lone priest that resides at the Sanctuary in “A Link to the Past” helped smuggle Zelda out of Ganondorf’s clutches.
So, are you going to buy your children this amazing game? It not only teaches your son or daughter to thwart the Evil of the Devil, but to save the believers of Hyrule! This game not only encourages the teachings of God, but become the Christian God wants them to be. It teaches them moral values, and discourages homosexuality. Over 90% of the gaming audience of these games are Chritians, and as we speak, the devout creator of this game is attempting to save non-believers. So why not join in? There’s nothing to lose, and you can only gain more appreciation for The Lord.
