JESUS' FAIL COMPILATION

 

----------------------------------------------

‚Äč

"A chariot of fire and horses of fire appeared... and Elijah went up to heaven in a whirlwind."

2 Kings 2:11, Bible (NIV)

VS.
"[Jesus said]: No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven — the Son of Man [Jesus]."

John 3:13, Bible (NIV)

 

Jesus has a short memory.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"Do not think that I [Jesus] have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets"

Matthew 5:17, Bible (NIV)

"It is easier for heaven and earth to disappear than for the least stroke of a pen to drop out of the Law."

Luke 16:17, Bible (NIV)

 

Jesus says he's not canceling the rules of the Old Testament. So, when are you going to, say, stop doing anything on Saturdays and start killing those who do, as the biblical law commands in Exodus 35:2?

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"Anyone who says, 'You fool!' will be in danger of the fire of hell."

Matthew 5:23, Bible (NIV)

VS.
"Those who trust in themselves are fools"

Proverbs 28:26, Bible (NIV)

"[Jesus said]: 'You blind fools!'"

Matthew 23:17, Bible (NIV)

"[Jesus said]: 'Ye fools'"

Luke 11:40, Bible (KJV)

"Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die"

1 Corinthians 15:36, Bible (KJV)

 

If the Bible is true, then a biblical prophet, an apostle, and Jesus himself are clearly in danger of the fire of hell.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them."

Matthew 6:26, Bible (NIV)

"Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father's care."

Matthew 10:29, Bible (NIV)

 

Jesus thinks that his heavenly dad does a good job feeding and caring for the birds. But in reality, the majority of the birds die before they reach maturity. As for sparrows in particular, under "Father's care" 75-80% of sparrows hatched do not survive to their first breeding season. Then 35%-55% of survived adults die each year.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"When Jesus heard this, he was amazed"

Matthew 8:10 = Luke 7:9, Bible (NIV)

 

Not-so-all-knowing Jesus. You can't get amazed by hearing something you already know.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"These twelve [disciples] Jesus sent out with the following instructions: 'Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans. Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel. As you go, proclaim this message: "The kingdom of heaven has come near." Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons.'"

Matthew 10:5-8, Bible (NIV)

 

Jesus wasn't interested in helping anyone except those from his favorite nation.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"If anyone will not welcome you [the disciples] or listen to your words... Truly I [Jesus] tell you, it will be more bearable for Sodom and Gomorrah on the day of judgment than for that town."

Matthew 10:14-15, Bible (NIV); similar: Mark 6:11, Luke 10:10-12

 

Jesus continues his father's course, planning to severely punish people for having a different opinion.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"Whoever acknowledges me [Jesus] before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven. But whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in heaven."

Matthew 10:32-33, Bible (NIV); similar: Luke 12:8-9

"If anyone is ashamed of me [Jesus] and my words... the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his Father's glory"

Mark 8:38, Bible (NIV); similar: Luke 9:26

 

Blackmail is one of Jesus' favorite techniques to gain popularity: "Promote me or else..."

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"Do not suppose that I [Jesus] have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword."

Matthew 10:34, Bible (NIV)

"Do you think I [Jesus] came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division."

Luke 12:51, Bible (NIV)

 

Thank you, Jesus, for wars, suffering, desolation, and orphanhood caused by sword and division that you brought! That's much better than peace, sure thing.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me [Jesus] is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me."

Matthew 10:37, Bible (NIV)

 

"Love" of the biblical deity Jesus is completely opposite to love. He wants to take all of you and wants to have the most special privileges granted to him while giving nothing in return, except unfounded fairy tales about a magical reward after death which no one can ever verify.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. But I [Jesus] say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you. And thou, Capernaum... shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day... It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee."

Matthew 11:21-24, Bible (KJV); similar: Luke 10:13-15

 

Jesus is upset about not getting the worship he expected, so he sends entire cities to hell.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"Whoever is not with me [Jesus] is against me"

Matthew 12:30 = Luke 11:23, Bible (NIV)

VS.
"Whoever is not against us [Jesus&Co] is for us."

Mark 9:40, Bible (NIV); similar: Luke 9:50

 

Jesus is not familiar with the concept of neutrality. He sees the world in black and white, which sometimes interchange in his head.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"Some of the Pharisees and teachers of the law said to him [Jesus], 'Teacher, we want to see a sign from you.' He answered, 'A wicked and adulterous generation asks for a sign! But none will be given it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.'"

Matthew 12:38-40, Bible (NIV); similar: Mark 8:11-13, Luke 11:29

 

People ask Jesus for evidence for his affirmations, but Jesus replies with generalized insults that the generation asking for it is wicked and adulterous. Then he says that his future resurrection will be a sign. But these people won't be able to verify it. A very "productive" debate.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"Some Pharisees and teachers of the law came to Jesus from Jerusalem and asked, 'Why do your disciples break the tradition of the elders? They don't wash their hands before they eat!'... Jesus called the crowd to him and said, '...What goes into someone's mouth does not defile them'"

Matthew 15:1-11, Bible (NIV); similar: Mark 7:5-15

 

The supreme omniscient deity came to people from another dimension and gave the worst medical advice possible — to not wash hands before meals. They ate with hands back then. Why is God unaware of microorganisms? Because he was created by people who were unaware of them.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"[Jesus] said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition? For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death. But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. Ye hypocrites"

Matthew 15:3-7, Bible (KJV); similar: Mark 7:9-13

 

Jesus criticizes people for not killing children for non-compliance. A message of love.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"A Canaanite woman from that vicinity came to him [Jesus], crying out, 'Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is demon-possessed and suffering terribly.' Jesus did not answer a word. So his disciples came to him and urged him, 'Send her away, for she keeps crying out after us.' He answered, 'I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel.' The woman came and knelt before him. 'Lord, help me!' she said. He replied, 'It is not right to take the children's bread and toss it to the dogs.' 'Yes it is, Lord,' she said. 'Even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their master's table.' Then Jesus said to her, 'Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted.' And her daughter was healed at that moment."

Matthew 15:22-28, Bible (NIV); similar: Mark 7:25-30

 

Jesus didn't want to help the woman because of her "bad" nationality. He equated Canaanites with dogs. Only after she degraded and humiliated herself was Jesus satisfied, and he decided to help her daughter.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"Came to him [Jesus] a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying, Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed... I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him. Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me. And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour. Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief... Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting."

Matthew 17:14-21, Bible (KJV); similar: Mark 9:17-29

 

Jesus loses patience and calls the entire generation names because a few folks couldn't cast out a demon. He says it's because of their unbelief, but then he says casting out this kind of demon actually required other steps. Quite an incoherent chain of accusations.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"He [Jesus] said unto them... There are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it."

Matthew 19:11-12, Bible (KJV)

 

Jesus promotes self-castrations in his name, for the kingdom of heaven's sake.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"Every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my [Jesus'] name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life."

Matthew 19:29, Bible (KJV); similar: Mark 10:29-31, Luke 18:29-30

"Those of you who do not give up everything you have cannot be my [Jesus'] disciples."

Luke 14:33, Bible (NIV)

 

Wanna be cool with Jesus? He wants you to forsake your real family and real property in exchange for promises of an imaginary post-mortem otherworldly and completely unverifiable reward. A perfect con.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, 'Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, say that the Lord needs them'"

Matthew 21:1-3, Bible (NIV); similar: Mark 11:1-3

 

Isn't taking someone's livestock without permission called stealing?

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet... He sent his servants to those who had been invited to the banquet to tell them to come... But they paid no attention and went off — one to his field, another to his business. The rest seized his servants, mistreated them and killed them. The king was enraged. He sent his army and destroyed those murderers and burned their city."

Matthew 22:2-7, Bible (NIV)

 

In this parable, Jesus continues the "collective guilt" policy of the Old Testament. The whole city must be burned because someone in it killed the heavenly king's servants.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"[Jesus said]: 'You say, "If we had lived in the days of our ancestors, we would not have taken part with them in shedding the blood of the prophets." So you testify against yourselves that you are the descendants of those who murdered the prophets.'"

Matthew 23:30-31, Bible (NIV)

 

Jesus continues the "family guilt" policy of the Old Testament. If someone from your distant ancestors did something wrong, Jesus will use it against you despite you condemn those wrong actions.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"Suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, 'My master is staying away a long time,' and he then begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards. The master of that servant... will cut him to pieces" 

Matthew 24:48-51, Bible (NIV)

 

To Jesus, an appropriate master's response to misbehavior of servants at work is cutting them to pieces. Beating and drinking at work is not cool indeed, but cutting to pieces for that is way worse.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"It [the kingdom of heaven] will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his wealth to them... The man who had received one bag [of gold] went off, dug a hole in the ground and hid his master's money. After a long time the master of those servants returned... The man who had received one bag of gold came. 'Master,' he said, 'I knew that you are a hard man, harvesting where you have not sown and gathering where you have not scattered seed. So I was afraid and went out and hid your gold in the ground. See, here is what belongs to you.' His master replied, 'You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed? Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest. So take the bag of gold from him... And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'"

Matthew 25:14-30, Bible (NIV); similar: Luke 19:12-26

 

Do you generate "interest" for God? If not, he will throw you away to the place of suffering. He doesn't give a shit about you, he only needs the interest you can give him. That's what Jesus' parable teaches.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"Jesus took bread... saying, 'Take and eat; this is my body.' Then he took a cup... saying, 'Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood'"

Matthew 26:26-28, Bible (NIV); similar: Mark 14:22-24, Luke 22:19-20

"Jesus said to them, 'Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink.  Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in them.'"

John 6:53-56, Bible (NIV)

 

Whether literally or figuratively, cannibalism is generally bad. Unless it's Christian cannibalism. Then it's good.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"The crowd that gathered around him [Jesus] was so large that he got into a boat... He taught them many things by parables, and in his teaching said: 'Listen! A farmer went out to sow his seed... [blah-blah parable]'... When he [Jesus] was alone, the Twelve and the others around him asked him about the parables. He told them, 'The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables so that, "they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding; otherwise they might turn and be forgiven!"' Then Jesus said to them, 'Don't you understand this parable?... The farmer sows the word... [blah-blah parable explanation]'"

Mark 4:1-14, Bible (NIV); similar: Matthew 13:2-18, Luke 8:4-11

 

Jesus knows that people don't understand his parables. More than that, he talks this way on purpose, so that they don't perceive, don't understand, and don't turn to be forgiven. He tells the "real" meaning of his parables only privately to disciples. Talking in puzzles, and then blaming people for not understanding is a godly trait indeed.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"Some people brought a blind man and begged Jesus to touch him... When he [Jesus] had spit on the man's eyes and put his hands on him, Jesus asked, 'Do you see anything?' He looked up and said, 'I see people; they look like trees walking around.' Once more Jesus put his hands on the man's eyes. Then his eyes were opened, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly."

Mark 8:22-25, Bible (NIV)

 

God Jesus needs a second attempt to make it right.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"A man in the crowd answered, 'Teacher, I brought you my son, who is possessed by a spirit'... When the spirit saw Jesus, it immediately threw the boy into a convulsion. He fell to the ground and rolled around, foaming at the mouth. Jesus asked the boy's father, 'How long has he been like this?' 'From childhood,' he answered."

Mark 9:17-21, Bible (NIV)

 

God Jesus needs input from a human witness to know what to do with the patient.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he [Jesus] went to find out if it had any fruit. When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves, because it was not the season for figs. Then he said to the tree, 'May no one ever eat fruit from you again'... the fig tree withered from the roots."

Mark 11:13-20, Bible (NIV)

 

What Would Jesus Do? He would kill a tree for not bearing fruit when it's not the season for fruit. This is like smashing your TV on Wednesday for not showing a Friday show.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"He [Jesus] fell to the ground and prayed that if possible the [crucifixion] hour might pass from him. 'Abba, Father,' he said, 'everything is possible for you. Take this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will.'"

Mark 14:35-36, Bible (NIV); similar: Matthew 26:39-42, Luke 22:41-42

 

The world created by God is full of pain. Then he sends billions of people to the everlasting agony without batting an eyelash. But it's a real problem for God-Jesus himself to feel pain for even one day, so he goes into chicken mode and asks the other part of himself to let him avoid what he came to do in the first place.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"After the festival was over, while his parents were returning home, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem, but they were unaware of it... Then they began looking for him among their relatives and friends... They went back to Jerusalem to look for him. After three days they found him in the temple courts... His mother said to him, 'Son, why have you treated us like this? Your father and I have been anxiously searching for you.' 'Why were you searching for me?' he asked. 'Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father's house?'"

Luke 2:43-49, Bible (NIV)

 

Are you a parent who wants your kids to follow the "What Would Boy Jesus Do" thing? Then expect them to sneak out while no one is watching, not tell anyone, and let you figure it out. They will make a point to not apologize when you finally find them several days later.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God"

Luke 2:52, Bible (NIV)

 

God grew in favor with himself?... OK... God also grew in wisdom? Isn't he supposed to be uber-wise already? Anyway, it's about time to smarten up, given the long record of his catastrophically poor judgment calls in the Old Testament.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"A woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years... She came up behind him [Jesus] and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped. 'Who touched me?' Jesus asked... 'Someone touched me; I know that power has gone out from me.'" 

Luke 8:43-46, Bible (NIV); similar: Mark 5:25-32

 

All-knowing divine Jesus has no clue who stole his power.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"Another [man] said [to Jesus], 'I will follow you, Lord; but first let me go back and say goodbye to my family.' Jesus replied, 'No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.'"

Luke 9:61-62, Bible (NIV)

 

God wants people to abandon their families without even saying goodbye before departing to do for God what God can't do himself.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"This generation will be held responsible for the blood of all the prophets that has been shed since the beginning of the world, from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechariah... Yes, I [Jesus] tell you, this generation will be held responsible for it all."

Luke 11:50-51, Bible (NIV); similar: Matthew 23:35-36

 

Jesus fully adopted the principles of "justice" from the Old Testament, holding one generation responsible for actions of a few specific people from other generations that are long long gone.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"I [Jesus] will show you whom you should fear: Fear him who, after your body has been killed, has authority to throw you into hell."

Luke 12:5, Bible (NIV)

 

Jesus continues threat-based marketing campaign of his dad.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"The master of that [bad] servant... will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the unbelievers. The servant who knows the master's will and does not get ready or does not do what the master wants will be beaten with many blows. But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows."

Luke 12:46-48, Bible (NIV)

 

This sums up Jesus' parable about God the master. To Jesus, cutting servants into pieces for disobedience is a normal practice. Unbelievers don't deserve any better. Also, Jesus thinks that it is right to beat servants even for not doing something they didn't know they should do. What a role model!

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"If anyone comes to me [Jesus] and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters... such a person cannot be my disciple... Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division. From now on there will be five in one family divided against each other"

Luke 14:26; 12:51-52, Bible (NIV)

 

Do you hate your unbelieving family members, and see them as your enemies? No? Then you're are not discipling right.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"[Jesus said]: 'Suppose one of you has a servant plowing or looking after the sheep. Will he say to the servant when he comes in from the field, "Come along now and sit down to eat"? Won't he rather say, "Prepare my supper, get yourself ready and wait on me while I eat and drink; after that you may eat and drink"? Will he thank the servant because he did what he was told to do? So you also, when you have done everything you were told to do, should say, "We are unworthy servants; we have only done our duty."'"

Luke 17:7-10, Bible (NIV)

 

In Jesus' worldview, people shouldn't thank slaves for their work or take slaves' needs into consideration.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"He [Jesus] went on to tell them a parable, because he was near Jerusalem and the people thought that the kingdom of God was going to appear at once. He said: 'A man of noble birth went to a distant country to have himself appointed king and then to return... But his subjects hated him and sent a delegation after him to say, "We don't want this man to be our king." He was made king, however, and returned home... then he said... "those enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them — bring them here and kill them in front of me."'"

Luke 19:11-27, Bible (NIV)

 

Jesus tells a parable about God, about himself. Its main character orders to kill people who voted against his kingship. One of the biblical ways of evangelism. People in the middle ages were pretty good at this one.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"[Jesus said]: 'if you don't have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.'"

Luke 22:36, Bible (NIV)

 

Because God is unable to achieve much without a human swinging a sword.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"Jesus went up to Jerusalem. In the temple courts he found people selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money. So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple courts... he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables."

John 2:13-15, Bible (NIV)

 

A human getting thrown out of balance upon seeing something he/she doesn't accept is normal, but a god whose emotional stability is so fragile is a very weak god.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"Jesus went around in Galilee. He did not want to go about in Judea because the Jewish leaders there were looking for a way to kill him."

John 7:1, Bible (NIV)

 

God Jesus was scared of Judean thugs.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"Jesus told them... 'You go to the festival. I am not going up to this festival'... However, after his brothers had left for the festival, he went also, not publicly, but in secret."

John 7:6-10, Bible (NIV)

 

Isn't lying a sin?

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"Jesus said... 'All who have come before me are thieves and robbers'"

John 10:7-8, Bible (NIV)

 

Jesus, the master of the generalization fallacy.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"Jesus wept."

John 11:35, Bible (NIV)

 

A weeping god... Really?

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I [Jesus] have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you."

John 15:19, Bible (NIV)

"[Jesus prayed]: 'I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world.'"

John 17:14, Bible (NIV)

"Don't you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God."

James 4:4, Bible (NIV)

 

Cult Job-Aid from Jesus:
Step 1. Create in people a sense of being "chosen" or "special"
Step 2. Convince the "chosen/special" ones they are hated by the "non-chosen" for being good
Step 3. Foster a "them vs. us" mentality to broaden the chasm
Step 4. Mental slavery for the win!

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"I [Jesus] am not praying for the world, but for those you [God the Father] have given me... I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message"

John 17:9, 20, Bible (NIV)

 

Jesus cares and prays only for his zealots. He doesn't have enough love to care for the rest.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"I [Jesus] pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you... I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one... so that they may be brought to complete unity."

John 17:20-23, Bible (NIV)

 

 

God didn't answer your prayer? Don't worry, he didn't answer Jesus' prayer either. Otherwise, Christians would be "as one" and in "complete unity". Having a few good friends from your denomination is not enough to consider this prayer answered.

 

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"I [apostle Paul] rejoice in what I am suffering for you, and I fill up in my flesh what is still lacking in regard to Christ's afflictions"

Colossians 1:24, Bible (NIV)

 

Christ's suffering wasn't complete. Something was still lacking and you're invited to finish what he couldn't.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"Jesus... in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel... who shall be punished with everlasting destruction"

2 Thessalonians 1:7-9, Bible (KJV)

 

Imagine a person walking on the streets of your neighborhood with a flamethrower, burning everyone who didn't read or disagreed with the article that he wrote in the local newspaper. You'd likely consider him a mentally deficient psychopath who needs to be isolated, if not more than that. Now back to Jesus. The scene is essentially the same, but Jesus acts even worse, he extends the suffering of the victims into the afterlife. What's your verdict about it? If you found a way to rationalize it, would you be sincere enough with yourself to notice how double standards clouded your judgment in Jesus' favor?

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"Jesus... has been tempted in every way, just as we are"

Hebrews 4:14-15, Bible (NIV)

 

A transcendent god-creator who can be tempted by human temptations is quite a pathetic god.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"I [Jesus] have given her [Jezebel] time to repent of her immorality, but she is unwilling. So... I will strike her children dead."

Revelation 2:21-23, Bible (NIV)

 

There is plenty of killing of children by God for acts of their parents in the Old Testament. You'd expect Jesus to be a bit more reasonable. But no.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"To the one who is victorious and does my [Jesus'] will to the end, I will give authority over the nations — that one 'will rule them with an iron scepter and will dash them to pieces like pottery'"

Revelation 2:26-27, Bible (NIV)

 

Jesus likes nations resting in pieces.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"When the Lamb [Jesus] opened the second seal... another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make people kill each other... When the Lamb [Jesus] opened the fourth seal... there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death... They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague"

Revelation 6:3-8, Bible (NIV)

 

Jesus wouldn't be God without arranging a bunch of wars and mass murders.

"They [people living at the end of times] called to the mountains and the rocks, 'Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb [Jesus]! For the great day of their wrath has come'...
When he [Jesus] opened the seventh seal... A third of the earth was burned up... A third of the sea turned into blood, a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed... A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter... Locusts came down on the earth... They were told not to harm the grass... but only those people who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads... to torture them for five months. And the agony they suffered was like that of the sting of a scorpion... The four angels... were released to kill a third of mankind... A third of mankind was killed..." 

Revelation 6:16-17; 8:1-9:18, Bible (NIV)

 

Jesus played benevolent for a few years on the earth. Not long after he finished his sermon about giving another cheek to the offender, hypocrite Jesus is going to ferociously devastate those who did not listen to him.

"If anyone worships the beast and its image... they will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb [Jesus]. And the smoke of their torment will rise for ever and ever."

Revelation 14:9-11, Bible (NIV)

 

Jesus is looking forward to enjoying the endless watching of the endless torture of people, simply for worshipping the wrong way. How sick is that?

"I looked... and seated on the cloud was one like a son of man [Jesus] with a crown of gold on his head and a sharp sickle in his hand... He who was seated on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth, and the earth was harvested. Another angel came out of the temple in heaven, and he too had a sharp sickle... The angel swung his sickle on the earth, gathered its grapes [people] and threw them into the great winepress of God’s wrath. They were trampled in the winepress outside the city, and blood flowed out of the press, rising as high as the horses' bridles for a distance of 1,600 stadia."

Revelation 14:14-20, Bible (NIV)

 

In this vision, Jesus and his angels grab infidels and crush them in a huge winepress. Their blood flows out of the press and forms a lake 1,600 stadia (296km/184miles) in radius. If this is not monstrous, then what is?

"He [Jesus]... wages war."

Revelation 19:11, Bible (NIV)

 

Not-so-pacifist Jesus.

 

----------------------------------------------

 

"I saw an angel... who cried in a loud voice to all the birds flying in midair, 'Come, gather together for the great supper of God, so that you may eat the flesh of kings, generals, and the mighty, of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, great and small.' Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to wage war against the rider [Jesus] on the horse and his army. But the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet... The rest [of people] were killed with the sword coming out of the mouth of the rider [Jesus] on the horse, and all the birds gorged themselves on their flesh."

Revelation 19:17-21, Bible (NIV)

 

Reveling of mass bloodsheds is something that biblical deity will never give up, not even by the end of the New Testament.
