Let's get personal.
Secularism is a worldview that believes all societal matters (government, education, public parts of society) should be free of any religious elements such as morals beliefs, faith or worship. It sets a boundary that draws a line in between religious groups and any affairs of the state. Through this separation, secularists believe they have not only gained democracy and freedom from any religious beliefs but have protected religion and the religious from governmental interference.
Relativism is a philosophical belief that all perspectives are equally acceptable, and that all truths are relative to the individual. Right and wrong is define by how each person perceives each situation. This term is often used to defend people who do not agree with the fact that there is an absolute God. The beliefs of moral absolutes and absolute right and wrong are often disapproved by relativists.

Hedonism is a worldview that believes happiness or pleasure is the most important purpose of life. Hedonists are all devoted to pleasure as they consider this the best way of living. They believe happiness is the “only good” and pain is the “only evil” in life. Therefore, the pursuit of happiness is to minimize pain.

HISTORY
- Pupil of Socrates taught that the purpose of life was to attain pleasure
- In Middle Ages, Christian philosophers denounced Hedonism as they found it inconsistent with the Christian emphasis on avoiding sin, doing God’s will and developing Christian virtues
- In 19th Century, when the term utilitarianism (any actions can be right if they benefit the majority) was first introduced, British philosophers, John Stuart Mill and Jeremy Betham, developed and refined Hedonism and stated “The greatest good for the greatest number.”
HISTORY
- Idea came from Protagoras - a scholar who could argue any side of an issue
- The term was first used in 1895 by a Scottish philosopher, Sir William Hamilton.
- Later on, it was translated into English through German
HISTORY
- started in mid-19th century
- a movement toward modernization (away from traditional religious values)
- inspiration came from early freethinkers
- George Jacob Holyoake, a British writer, was the first man who used the term “secularism”

- Open world action-adventure game developed and published by Rockstar
- A political satire
- Very recent, released 17 Sept 2013
- All about criminal activities
- Players use pistols, machine guns, sniper rifles, and explosives to kill various enemies and/or random strangers
- The game includes depictions of sexual content and advocates sexual activity
- Players can consume alcohol whenever they please and drive under the influence

CONNECTION
Secularism is significantly shown in the society of the game as no religious values are portrayed. GTAV promotes a moral-less society that consist of no religious elements in any states of affairs as anyone is free to do whatever they want.

CONNECTION
In GTAV, players are allowed to do anything they want. Everything that is done in the game is considered “right” from the perspective of each player. As a result, relativism is shown in the game when players act according to what they believe is right because each character weigh their moral beliefs differently.
CONNECTION
Throughout the game, hedonism is constantly portrayed in the missions. Characters attempt to reach their goals, whether the situation is morally good or evil. As each player successfully achieves his mission, he gains satisfaction. Therefore, players would use their “power” to pursue their own idea of “happiness.”

In Genesis 19, God destroyed the city of Sodom and Gomorrah. People who lived there had turned away from God. They chose to do wrong because they thought they had found "joy" in the wrongs they did. As a result, God burnt up "those cities and entire plain, destroying all those living in the city"
Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Philippians 2:3,4

- God’s standards are the ultimate standard. Given the 10 commandments.
- Even without commandments, God gave us conscience:
Romans 2:14-15
14 (Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law,they are a law for themselves, even though they do not have the law. 15 They show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts sometimes accusing them and at other times even defending them.

Responding to Secularism
God is the ultimate being in control, all authority is given by God. Therefore, it is impossible to neglect or take out God from the society matters (government, education…)
Colossians 1:16
For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.

The story follows three main characters, Michael, Trevor and Franklin. Nine years ago, Michael and Trevor were part of a notorious trio of bank robbers along with another man named Brad. During their final robbery in a small town called North Yankton, not everything goes according to plan. Michael and Brad both get shot as they are apprehended by the Federal Investigation Bureau (FIB), while Trevor manages to escape
Brads wound turns out to be fatal, and Michael strikes and unknown deal with the FIB, where he not only gets to elude prison, but also is moved to another city name Los Santos under witness protection through the FIB, and is given a new identity. The publicized story used to cover up these events was that, Michael was killed by the gunshot wound and Brad was sent to prison. Trevor was never informed about the truth.

Franklin is a repo man working for a local car dealership in Los Santos. By chance, Franklin meets and befriends Michael after Franklin is assigned to repossess Michaels sons car. Shortly after, Michael catches his wife having an affair with her tennis instructor. In a blind rage, Michael contacts Franklin to help him exact revenge on the tennis instructor. Michael and Franklin chase to tennis instructor all the way to what appears to be the tennis instructor’s house. The two men damage the house considerably as a means of revenge.

The house turns out not to be owned by the tennis instructor, but a high profile Mexican drug lord, who seeks $2.5 million dollar from Michael for reparations. Unable to pay off his debts, Michael reverts back to a life of crime, and enlists Franklin to assist him with the robbery of a jewelry store.

After successfully robbing the jewelry store, the events are broadcasted over the news. Trevor, now living in a small town just outside of Los Santos, watches this broadcast, and immediately identifies that the robbery had to be performed by his former partner Michael. Trevor decides to head to Los Santos in search of his former partner.
Upon reuniting with Michael, the two men return to their former life as bank robbers along with their new partner Franklin.
