Answer these question please and then read on...
1. What race is your friend?
2. Where's he from?
3. What are some of his personal beliefs?
4. What exact type of media does he write about on his blog?
(The rest of this post will be written like I am speaking directly to your friend. Instead of saying your friend, I will say 'you'.)
Roots is a reference to our roots as humanity I believe. Our values, etc.
Look up Matthias Gretzschel and you'll find:
Matthias Gretzschel (Author of In Martin Luther's Footsteps)
Gretzschel seems to be a German writer.
It's hard to find his work translated, but you can check out a book by him on Google
Let's play a game sounds like the 'Saw' series. The Saw series is comprised of a set of games by a serial killer who sets up situations that play
on people's personal values. The motivation is that if you don't win, you lose. It is black and white thinking and losing in Saw consists of
Perhaps the $1.500.00 reference is made to show you that death is not a concern for you however, the game is the same as Saw.
While doing a sermon, a pastor named his speech/sermon "Win or lose: the choice is yours". He speaks about part of the bible which can be found
(Joshua 24:1-15). It is about choosing your God, or in
reality: Choosing your beliefs, who you follow and ridding yourself of evil and exterior entities.
Gretzschel also has ties to chemical testing on cattle; perhaps for unknown reasons?

Back to money...
The fact that the poster uses the $ sign is very important. In US Dollars the . (period) symbol is nothing like some places in Europe's use of it. We
use it to distinguish the end. For example, $15.005 is very different than $15,005.
The former is 15 dollars and a fraction of a cent where as the last is 15 thousand and five dollars.
So with the use of $1.500.00 they are really saying about ONE dollar and 50 CENTS for answering correctly. They will not give you money, but they may
include this to further emphasize the fact that this journey they hope to bring you on is not for money, power, etc, but for:
-Improving your values
Anyways, I hope this helps
