It's always amazed me...jt

Submitted by Joey Tranchina, Jul 15, 2014 13:10

It's always amazed me how people can take a book of fairy tales, most of which are outright lies made up decades after the main guy died and find in them so many reasons to hate other human beings, when about the only thing we know about Jesus, with any degree of certainty, is that he was a rabbi, a teacher, whose core message was one of pacifism and love.

 

Wise up - they're stories

May 22, 2014 09:05

The problem is when old books of stories are taken literally. The stories are meant to be understood as metaphors. People inflict damage on people's lives everywhere because they take the bible and quran literally. Remove religion and this would not be happening. Unfortunately most people are not intelligent enough to deal with religion at the metaphorical level so we mayhem. I'm sure this will upset everyone that isn't smart enough to realize that books written 1,000 to 2,000 years ago, meant to give people a sense of security, are nothing more than fabricated stories. Whoever put them in the non-fiction section made a massive mistake and it's what Christians, Muslims and Jews have in common: ignorance.

 

More than 95% of Muslims are antisemites and hate Jews and Israel

In fact, the Islam aims to destroy Israel and to murder all Jews. This is clearly written in the Quran. Every other explanation is simply Taqiyya. rememberamalek.blogspot

 

Of course the Jews had a hand in Killing Jesus

May 18, 2014 20:26

It is completely obvious to anyone who has read the New Testament that the Jews are entirely complicit in killing Jesus. Of course all people share in the guilt sins our sins are the reason that Jesus died. At the same time god used the hard heartedness of his people's leadership, from Ciaphas the high priest who said it was better that one man should die than that trouble should come to all the Jews, to the Sanhedrin - the Jewish council that put Jesus on trial and condemned him to death, to the chief priests who went to the Romans to request Jesus execution since the Jewish leadership didn't have authority to execute.

Does this make me as a Christian angry towards the Jews? No, I share the same roots, we grew from the same tree. I understand the circumstances that motivated those leaders. Am I prejudiced against Jews because I point out what it says in the New Testament?

 

We Crucified Jesus

Submitted by Ron82, May 16, 2014 21:41

You cannot blame the Jews or the Romans. It was Prophesied in the Old Testament, you might want to read psalms as well as the Prophets of the old testament that OUR TRANSGRESSIONS whether Jew or Gentile that cost this great sacrifice of Christ. He died for us that we might have eternal life through HIM. We have no one to blame but ourselves. STOP with your antisemitism and realize that it was yours and my sins that was the cause for His crucifixion. What more can you ask of God. WE ARE TO BLAME.
