He took the blind man by the hand and
led him outside the village. When he 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
What was the deal with Jesus spitting
on people? We know that if Jesus was
real, he could heal with just his own words.
Why did Jesus need to spit on people to heal certain maladies, like
Absalom said to Ahithophel,
“Give us your advice. What should we do?” Ahithophel answered, “Sleep with your
father’s concubines whom he left to take care of the palace. Then all Israel
will hear that you have made yourself obnoxious to your father, and the hands
of everyone with you will be more resolute.” So they pitched a tent for Absalom
on the roof, and he slept with his father’s concubines in the sight of all
Israel. Now in those days the advice
Ahithophel gave was like that of one who inquires of God. That was how both
David and Absalom regarded all of Ahithophel’s advice. – 2 Samuel 16:20-23
So all in all, because
David killed Uzziah in order to sleep with Bathsheba, Uzziah’s wife, God cursed
David and had David’s son forcibly have sex with his concubines “in the sight
of all Israel!” What does this say about
Yahweh, the God of Judaism and Christianity?
But if the thing is
true, and evidences of virginity are not found for the young woman, then they
shall bring out the young woman to the door of her father’s house, and the men
of her city shall stone her to death with stones, because she has done a disgraceful
thing in Israel, to play the harlot in her father’s house. So you shall put
away the evil from among you. – Deuteronomy 22:20-21
Therefore, if a woman has sex before marriage, she should be
stoned to death. What does that say to how
early Christian women in that time period were treated? This does not happen to men. Why the dissymmetrical management between
sexes? This is because women were
treated as chattel in the eyes of men and that belief was transposed into the
Bible because the Bible is the act of men and not of God. What say you?
Religion loves to deploy magic whenever science deconstructs religion. When science picks religious beliefs apart, religion turns to magical incantations in order to convolve faith and reality. Evolution? God did that. The creation of the universe out of nothing? God did that. Who created God? God is eternal. Its magic!
How long should we allow such sleight of hand to be the
response to such questions? How dare
theists use such childish rebuttals as responses to these important questions! What do you think?
How is it that God sees everything but failed to
intervene during black slavery, the crusades, women’s forced indebted
servitude, rape, child molestation, the outcasting and murder of homosexuals
and all of the mass genocides of the 19th and 20 centuries?
Proverbs 5:21 – The Lord sees everything you do.
Wherever you go, he is watching.
Hebrews 4:13 – Nothing in all creation is hidden from
God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to
whom we must give account.
Proverbs 15:3 – The eyes of the LORD are everywhere,
keeping watch on the wicked and the good.
Then God said, “Take your son, your only son, whom you
love—Isaac—and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt
offering on a mountain I will show you.” – Genesis 22:2
What kind of sick individual would put a parent in the
position of killing their child? How
could this be considered moral? It does
not matter that Yahweh/Jehovah recanted his mandate to Abraham and allowed his
son to live. Imagine what God wanted
Abraham to do as a test. He wanted
Abraham to slit his son’s throat and then set him on fire. Please re-read the previous sentence one more
time for emphasis. This is the God that
wants your adoration. This is why the
scourge of religion needs to be eliminated, not by force but by the
understanding that is what this God would like as devotion. Pure allegiance and service to this vile
creature is what it desires. This
monster can gift wrap the rest of the Bible as a sound foundation of morals but
this requested act is a testament to what God wants from us.
“Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not
worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy
of me. – Matthew 10:37
Please remember both the example of Abraham and the
aforementioned scripture when thinking about where you devotions lie…
It is faith that was the impulse engine for the
Crusades, the Inquisition, the Nazi’s Holocaust, and other atrocities. Faith
is the motor that allows people to be complacent in their lives. Faith allows people to truly believe in miracles.
Faith can make a father like the biblical Abraham place a knife onto the
throat of his son. Faith can make a Jehovah’s
Witness withhold a blood transfusion for
themselves or significant others when that is the only cure. Faith allowed 19 men to fly into the twin
towers, the pentagon and an open field in
Pennsylvania. Conversely, it was only
facts that allowed the U.S. to kill Osama Bin Laden.
What do you think?
Is faith so strong that it can lead people to kill? Is faith a bad thing?
So Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and did just as the Lord
commanded. Aaron threw his staff down in front of Pharaoh and his officials,
and it became a snake. Pharaoh then summoned wise men and sorcerers, and the
Egyptian magicians also did the same things by their secret arts: Each one
threw down his staff and it became a snake. But Aaron’s staff swallowed up
their staffs. – Exodus 7:10-12
Which God was
stronger? The God of the Bible or the gods
Excerpt from “The True
Nature Of Human Nature”
may never die due to the supposed comfort that it brings. Prayer has been
foisted upon parishioners as a way to directly communicate with God as a
means of comfort. However, what has
prayer ever done that was beneficial? If
two football teams pray for victory, one of their prayers will not be fulfilled.
The Islamic hijackers of United Airlines Flight 93 were praying to God
before they attempted to hit their intended target. The ironic thing is that
the passengers prayed to God as well.
What good did any of their prayers do?
For everyone who curses his father or his mother shall surely be put to death. He has cursed his father or his mother. His blood shall be upon him. – Leviticus 20:9
The murder of children because of their cursing of parents? How can this behavior be even remotely justifiable? Since when can anything verbal justify the killing of an individual? Who cares if this is listed in the Old Testament. How was this ever moral? Why did God ever allow this type of behavior?
Wives, submit yourselves to your
husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. – Colossians 3:18.
A woman[a] should learn in quietness and
full submission. I do not
permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man;[b] she must be quiet. – 1 Timothy
This is why there was a need for a women’s right
revolution! The Bible inculcated these
teachings to men on how a female should behave!
If it were not for the Bibles teachings, women would have been treated as equals. How can we overlook this mainstay in the Christian
religion? We can’t. The Bible is wrong for teaching this. There is no God.
