#47 a christian is supposed to not kill, right?
christians, being followers of jesus are not supposed to kill, so their apologists say, yet they have killed more innocent people-- men women and children-- in the past 100 years than anyone else in world history.
now, why is that? is it because for the past 100 years christianity is the biggest religious failure that the world has ever known? that it does absolutely nothing to reduce the urges to or motives to kill others?
or is it because that somehow, it feeds into the carnage?
well, let's go to the bible for a clue--
the old testament details years of death and destruction of masses of people at the hands of a vengeful lord. no atrocity is too mild! according to the true believing christian these brutalities described so graphically positively, actually happened because the bible is, according to the christian, the inspiration or word of god himself.
now, many christians will point to the o.t. and say, "well, the o.t. was abrogated through jesus-- we now believe in the teachings of the n.t." but the fact remains that god still performed all this horrible stuff in the first place!!! it cannot be denied by christians because to do so would negate their belief that the bible is 100% accurate.
take deuteronomy 2:33 for example. a true christian will NEVER deny that the lord allowed the israelites to slaughter men women and children indiscriminately. they'll simply say, "that all changed when jesus came" and wash their hands of the past actions of their new, gentler, kinder god.
but the fact (to christians) remains that it DID happen and moreover it was done by god, who is also, according to christians-- JESUS. so in essence, in order to be a trrue believer one must also believe that jesus, being part god, had a hand in these acts.
yet these same chrisitans see the same actions in muslims and they cry out against them as savages, upholding themselves as civilized and bearers of god's true message.
what utter hypocrisy!!!!
christianity might try to hide behind cleverly constructed arguments that deny it's bent towards death and destruction, but the evidence is there in their own writings and, more importantly, in the unfortunate results when they are the majority in power.
please withold any applause.
