19th September 2008

“The most Christian industrialised nation, the USA, has been giving materialism a bad name for decades; its treatment of its less fortunate citizens (health care, flood victims etc) and its human rights abuses, including the continuing use of the death penalty, all under presidents who declare their undying devotion to the Christian faith, show how out of touch with the New Testament message they are.”

    I think our barbaric administration is actually in PERFECT harmony with the New Testament Message. I offer proof:

    Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
    -The alleged Jesus in Matthew 10:34

    But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.
    -The alleged Jesus in Luke 19:27

    And I will kill her children with death…
    -The alleged Jesus in Rev. 2:23 KJV

    Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.
    -Paul [I Corinthians 14:34-35]

    “For there are eunuchs, that were so born from their mother’s womb: and there are eunuchs, that were made eunuchs by men: and there are eunuchs, that made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.” (Matthew 19:12 ASV)
    Personal note:WTF?!?

    “Brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.” Matthew 10:21

    Jesus, whose clothes are dipped in blood, has a sharp sword sticking out of his mouth. Thus attired, he treads the winepress of the wrath of God. (The winepress is the actual press that humans shall be put into so that we may be ground up.) Revelations 19:13-15

    Jesus is criticized by the Pharisees for not washing his hands before eating. He defends himself by attacking them for not killing disobedient children according to the commandment: “He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.” Matthew 15:4-7

    Abandon your wife and children for Jesus and he’ll give your a big reward. Jesus asks that his followers abandon their children to follow him. To leave your child is abuse, it’s called neglect, pure and simple. Matthew 19:29

    Jesus criticizes the Jews for not killing their disobedient children according to Old Testament law. Mark 7:9

    And while today’s “Christians” are so quick to want to render the Old Testament moot, Jesus himself says “It is easier for Heaven and Earth to pass away than for the smallest part of the letter of the law to become invalid.” (Luke 16:17 NAB)

    So you see, we are nothing if not consistent. Who needs a drink?

    And since I missed the excitement yesterday, i’ll lob a bomb today and assert that the Jesus of the bible was a made up composite. Here’s my back up:

    HI Chris, missed you yesterday!

    Can’t disagree with your comparisons b/w Jebus and the current Administration. I especially like the eunuch quote. Perhaps if more folks, “made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heavens sake,” we could get out from under this yoke of silly superstition called christianity just through self-enforced population control. So, it is with great sincerity that I urge all xians to follow the New Testament literally.

    Also, like that link at infidels.org. It’s now in my arsenal of anti-xian links.
