I got into a bit of a debate on Twitter tonight about Christianity (just for a change). My comments here. When I pointed out the long list of genocides committed under Christianity, they asked me where in the New Testament Jesus had preached genocide. So I told them – Matthew 13:50.
13:49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,
13:50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Included in “the wicked” are people who don’t believe that Jesus is the Lord. That’s from John 3:18:
Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.
Now – if the Second Coming was tomorrow, the group of “the wicked” would be about 4 BILLION people.
Christians believe that the mass genocide of 4 billion people is entirely okay. Ninety7 said it’s okay because he’s not the one judging them. Apparently it’s okay to support mass genocide as long as you aren’t the one actually pulling the trigger.
That is why I say Christianity is a violent and intolerant philosophy.
How did these folks on Twitter respond?
When I asked Ninety7 how he justified his belief that mass genocide was acceptable, he just shut down and stopped responding.
is there a Christian out there anywhere who can stand up to a rigorous debate about their religion?
