Terrorism in the Bible – Is the Godhead of the Bible Morally Upright?

Most Christians either completely gloss over or ignore the violence of the Old Testament. Such an apologetic is usually framed in the form of contextualising this violence as being for a specific period and people. We’re speaking about genocide, mass rape, mass torture, and horrendous acts of this nature. When compared with the New Testament, it is difficult to reconcile the two versions of God being presented to us. Our most read article also inspects some of these stories of the Old Testament.

The Old Testament contains the single most violent passage among any scripture in world history:

However, in the cities of the nations the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes. – Deuteronomy 20:16.

Rivaled by none, the scale of sheer violence and bloodshed in the Bible is not only disturbing, it is also extremely difficult to accept that this is the God that Christians want us to build a relationship with. Concerning the apologetic that such violence is meant for a specific place and time, this betrays the Bible’s teachings itself. To begin with, the Bible teaches that all of God’s laws are eternal:

All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal. – Psalm 119:160.

Pursuant to this belief, of the 613 commandments given in the Old Testament, several of them are to act upon the rules of Deuteronomy Chapter 20. This includes Deuteronomy 20:16. Some Christians in reading this chapter may state that it mentions Israel a number of times so it must only refer to the Children of Israel, however this is incorrect as the Church today is considered to be partakers in Israel, as is explained by one popular Christian ministry (emphasis mines):

Finally, Galatians 3:29 says, “If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” In other words, in Christ, believers are counted righteous by faith in the same way that Abraham was (Galatians 3:6-8). If we are in Christ, then we are partakers of the blessing of Israel and all nations in the redemptive work of Christ. Believers become the spiritual descendants of Abraham. Believers do not become physical Jews, but they may enjoy the same type of blessings and privileges as the Jews.

Financier of Sam Shamoun Threatens a Terrorist Attack

A well known financier of Sam Shamoun, Anthony Rogers and David Wood, has made quite a startling threat to innocent civilians.

cc-2015-robertwellsterroristMany schizophrenics who are Christians and proclaim to hear voices in their heads, otherwise known to them as “God”, pose a very real and terrifying threat to human life. It is quite disturbing to see the extent to which this Christian has been radicalized. Speaking on Christians who claim to hear God speaking to them, psychologist Tanya Marie says:

“Most people reading the ancient scriptures understand these accounts of hearing God’s voice as miracles that really did happen but no longer take place today, or maybe as folkloric flourishes to ancient stories. Even Christians who believe that miracles can be an everyday affair can hesitate when someone tells them they heard God speak audibly. There’s an old joke: When you talk to God, we call it prayer, but when God talks to you, we call it schizophrenia.”

This is a very real threat, one recent example of a Christian hearing voices in her head, believing the voice to be God, almost murdered a man:

Police later found the driver of the car, Prionda Hill, at the Rally’s several blocks down the road from where she hit [motorcyclist Anthony] Oliveri. She told police “she was driving and out of no where God told her that he would take it from here and she let go of the wheel and let him take it.” She’s now facing several charges.

We call upon Sam Shamoun, Anthony Rogers and David Wood, to contact the authorities and help prevent a massacre in the name of Christianity, by a psychopath who claims he would absolutely kill everything that breathes if the voices in his head told him to do so.

Islamic Terrorists and Sudan: The Broken Narrative

In the years leading up to the secession of South Sudan from Sudan, the narrative being proposed by the media and many Christian polemics, insisted that the Christian majority south of Sudan needed a separate state because of the brutality and genocide they face from the Muslim majority north of the country. So, in 2005 talks between rival factions began which eventually led to the 2011 split up of the North African country. Thus, South Sudan was now going to be a utopia of Christian rule and freedom from the brutality of Muslims whose only purpose it seemed was to oppress the feeble South Christian majority.

That was the narrative, and now that the Christian majority south is free from their Muslim oppressors, what happened? Well, nothing changed. As it turned out, South Sudan is unstable more now, than it ever was. The narrative given before couldn’t work now, Muslims couldn’t be blamed, suddenly the massacres by Christians against Christians in South Sudan is based on ethnic tribal disputes and not based on religion. Varying Christian majority ethnic groups began to kill and fight for control of the new country:

The country has been in turmoil since President Salva Kiir accused Mr Machar a week ago of attempting a coup. The BBC’s former Sudan correspondent James Copnall says the situation now looks very much like civil war. At least 500 people have been killed since the fighting began with the government struggling to keep control of the capital, Juba. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called on both men to “find a political way out of this crisis”. – BBC News.

Continuing since the inception of the newest country in the world, in December 2013 massacres en masse began occurring by the Christian majority ethnic groups:

Thousands of people must have been killed in the past week of violence in South Sudan, the top UN humanitarian co-ordinator there has told the BBC. Toby Lanzer, who is in Bentiu in northern Unity state, said it had been “a devastating week for South Sudan”. The UN Security Council on Tuesday voted unanimously to almost double the number of peacekeepers to 12,500. Earlier President Salva Kiir said his forces had recaptured the key town of Bor days after it was seized by rebels. – BBC News.

As of last week, another genocide occurred, leaving over 1 million Christians reeling from the fighting and blood shedding by their co-religionists:

Hundreds of people were killed because of their ethnicity after South Sudan rebels seized the oil hub of Bentiu last week, the UN has said. They were targeted at a mosque, a church and a hospital, the UN Mission in South Sudan said in a statement. It added that hate speech was broadcast on local radio stations, saying certain groups should leave the town and urging men to rape women. The Nuer community are seen as supporters of rebel leader Riek Machar. President Salva Kiir is a member of the country’s largest group, the Dinka. Although both men have prominent supporters from various communities, there have been numerous reports of rebels killing ethnic Dinkas and the army targeting Nuers since the conflict broke out in December 2013. Since then, more than a million people have fled their homes in what was already among the world’s poorest nations. – BBC News.

It would seem then, that when South Sudan was given independence all the violent and maniac Muslim crazies killing the innocent Christians in the south, stopped and disappeared into thin air. Following that magical occurrence, the massacres between the Christian majority south ethnic groups began to happen. It’s tragic how this narrative has developed. Muslims were demonized for what we can call the benefit of no one, when the real issue was the violence between the ethnically divided Christian majority south. This had nothing to do with Muslims. It had everything to do with inter-religious, tribal, Christian violence in the south of the country.

What a shame.

Who is the New Pope? A Quick Rundown

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ ,

Cardinal Jorge Maria Bergoglio, now Pope Francesco/ Francis (I) has a significantly worst history than that of the previous ex-Nazi Cardinal Ratzinger (Pope Benedict). According to several news reports, he has been a public defender in the Argentinian Dictatorship, aided in the kidnapping of babies, helped pedophile priests skip jail time and was even implicated in the murder of two other Catholic Priests!

  • Pagina 12 – April 18th, 2010.  –“Five new testimonies, offered spontaneously, following the article “Your past is condemned”, confirmed the role of Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, in the military government’s crackdown on the ranks of the Catholic Church, including the disappearance of priests . Those speaking are a theologian who for decades taught catechism in schools of the diocese of Morón, former superior of a priestly fraternity (that was decimated by enforced disappearances), a layman of the same fraternity who reported the cases to the Vatican, a priest and a layman abducted and tortured.”
  • Tiempo Argentino – May 3rd, 2011. – “Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio could be called to testify again in a case involving crimes against humanity, this time before the Federal Court in June, for the systematic plan to steal babies.”
  • Infobae (Latin America) – October 18th, 2012. – The now Pope is implicated in aiding/ defending an accused Priest of escaping prosecution for the sexual abuse of children.

A book documenting the complicity of Cardinal Jordge Bergoglio (now Pope Francis) in the crimes of the Argentinian Dictatorial regime is well documented in the book by veteran Argentinian Journalist,  Horacio Verbitskys in his book, “The Flight: Confessions of an Argentine Dirty Warrior”. More to come as the history of the newest leader of 1.2 billion Catholics is examined and critiqued.
