|'god' is a vampire!!|
|Back to 'Why Christianity is evil'|
|Killing terrified animals for fun and profit:
It all started with Cain and Able offering their sacrifices to "the lord". Cain the farmer offered up fruits and veggies & Able slaughtered an animal or two to make 'god' happy. Apparently the "broccoli sacrifice" wasn't as impressive as the rump roast sacrifice because 'god' chastised Cain about it. This pissed Cain off to the point that he thought "Hell, I've give you a blood offering" and bashed Able's head in. 'god' didn't like this too much but oddly enough seemed to not have a problem with human sacrifice at a later date. After 'god' got a taste for the blood of the innocent, he started demanding it on a constant basis. It seems that 'god' not only needs constant affection and ego-boosting, but he needs to eat animal fat and drink "clean" fresh blood of the "blemish-free" innocent. The more innocent the better. Leviticus 1-9 is about practically nothing else but lessons on how to horrifically slaughter innocent animals and their slinging their blood and entrails about.
Why does 'god' love to savour blood so much?
"For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul."
Ah...so when 'god' drinks your blood, he's eating your lifeforce. 'Sounds vamiliar. ;-)
Here's some examples from Leviticus...
1:13 "But he shall wash the inwards and the legs with water: and the priest shall bring it all, and burn it upon the altar: it is a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD."
1:15 "And the priest shall bring it unto the altar, and wring off his head, and burn it on the altar; and the blood thereof shall be wrung out at the side of the altar: "
1:17 "...and the priest shall burn it upon the altar, upon the wood that is upon the fire: it is a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD. "
3:16 "And the priest shall burn them upon the altar: it is the food of the offering made by fire for a sweet savour: all the fat is the LORD's. "
And on and on and on. We see "sweet savour" again and again describing burnt sacrifices. Keep that in mind.
'god' condoned Human sacrifice in the bible:
"Thou shalt not revile the gods..."
Notice; "gods" plural...
"...nor curse the ruler of thy people. Thou shalt not delay to offer the first of thy ripe fruits, and of thy liquors: the firstborn of thy sons shalt thou give unto me. Likewise shalt thou do with thine oxen, and with thy sheep: seven days it shall be with his dam; on the eighth day thou shalt give it me.
"The firstborn of thy sons shalt thou give unto me". Is this refering to human sacrifice? Probably. There seems to be no distinguishing between these 'sons' and the animal sacrifices spoken of immediately afterwords.
1 Kings 13:2
"And he cried against the altar in the word of the LORD, and said, O altar, altar, thus saith the LORD; Behold, a child shall be born unto the house of David, Josiah by name; and upon thee shall he offer the priests of the high places that burn incense upon thee, and men's bones shall be burnt upon thee."
King Josiah is prophesied to sacrifice the priests of the "high places" on their altars. And he does so in 2 Kg.23:20.
2 Kings 23:20 "And he slew all the priests of the high places that were there upon the altars, and burned men's bones upon them, and returned to Jerusalem."
And last but not least is the infamous Jephthah in Judges 11.
The Israeli leader Jephthah is in battle and makes a vow to 'god'-Yahweh (Jesus' father) that if he helped him win the battle he would offer to 'god' as a burnt offering the first person to greet him from his home upon his return. His family consisted of himself, his wife and a young virgin daughter. His daughter was the one who greeted him (big surprise there, eh? "Mmmm...nice juicy virgin blood!").
He told his daughter his vow and as the story goes, SHE told him that he should keep his vow, but to let her wander around and become one with nature for a while and say her goodbye's to the world. So she rambled around in the woods for a short period...
"And it came to pass at the end of two months, that she returned unto her father, who did with her according to his vow which he had vowed: and she knew no man. And it was a custom in Israel..."
First, I find her willingness as implausible as Lot's virgin daughters plotting to rape HIM when he was the one who turned down living in the land of Zor and taking another wife, opting instead to live wifeless in a cave with his two virgin daughters and staying drunk on wine.
Secondly, Judges chapter 11 makes a big deal over the human sacrifice of Jephthah's daughter being a young virgin sacrifice to 'god'-Yahweh. No doubt this was part of the appeal of what was probably a real burning body murder on a rock. No doubt the "lord" enjoyed a "sweet savour" of sweet flesh and blood then as well.
Now, before Christians get started bemoaning how unfair I am, ask yourself when was the last time YOUR preacher or priest or rabbi condemned Jephthah in your church or synagogue service? What was the last time you heard about Jephthah at all? HAVE YOU EVER heard about Jephthah?
Who would approve of such a thing?!!! SURELY not the Christian Church, right?
In Hebrews 11, Paul of Tarsus keeps going on and on about faith. In Hebrews 11:32 he goes on about the 'hero's of faith'.
"And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gideon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthah; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets:"
The ONLY mention of Jephthah in the whole freaking bible (even the apocrypha which were included in the Septuagint which was Paul's bible) is Judges 11 where he sacrifices and slaughters his virgin daughter on a rock to Yahweh. For this Paul offers his admiration in Hebrews 11:32.
"MY daddy can commit human sacrifice of his child better than YOUR daddy can!"
It's amazing how Christians will vehemently condemn Muslim's for strapping bombs onto the backs of their "willing" children to die for their holy cause and 'divine' purpose to the glory of the one true 'god' of Abraham, but are not willing to criticize Jephthah for EXACTLY THE SAME THING.
What is even more shocking is that they condemn the Muslims for doing this AND YET CHRISTIANITY IS BASED ON THE SACRIFICE OF ONE'S CHILDREN TO 'GOD'-YAHWEH.
Christianity is a beautiful thing where Jesus volunteered to die for your sins and if you accept his "gift" you are blessed with is "grace", right?
Christianity is where 'god'-Yahweh planned the torture and sacrifice of his son to himself, 'god'-Yahweh. What good is a sacrifice to oneself? Well, if the guilty decide to accept Jesus' torture (called the "passion") and blood atoning payment to Yahweh for their sins, then they get to go to heaven instead of being sent to hell to be tortured themselves. Just as Jephthah (theoretically) profited from the human sacrifice of his daughter to Yahweh, so do the sinful (guilty) profit from accepting the same through Jesus Christ's torture and death sacrifice to Yahweh.
Am I being "unfair" by characterizing Jesus' death as a human sacrifice to Yahweh?
Not according to the bible.
In Hebrews 9:12-14, Paul wrote:
"Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?"
"For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself."
"...without shedding of blood is no remission."
'god' doesn't forgive; he demands an atoning payment of fresh innocent blood to drink.
And in Ephesians 5:2
"And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour."
mmm...Jesus' blood is savory too!! Yummy. 'god' loves the smell and taste of the blood of the innocent!!
'god'-Yahweh just looooves to drink Jesus' "blemish free" lifeblood.
Can you say VAMPIRE?!!
The "Last Supper", Eucharist, communion and Transubstantiation.
A common element with human sacrifice is cannibalism. There tends to be a common belief amongst primitive tribes that engage in such practice is that you "are what you eat". That is, that one absorbs not only the power but the essence of a thing by eating it, especially in religious rituals.
'The Last Supper' is a Eucharist ceremony and it was and is not common among the Jewish people, but it was common among the pagan Hellenistic religions of the time. It is a symbolic ritual eating of the flesh and drinking of the blood of a sacrificial victim in a religious ceremony. Transubstantiation is the Catholic belief that the 'symbolic' blood of the wine in the ceremony literally becomes the blood of Jesus when it passes the gullet. If one believes in the transubstantiation ceremony, then one believes that they are LITERALLY and ghoulishly drinking the blood (and eating the flesh) of the sacrificial lamb named Jesus. This is nothing short of ghoulish vampirism in mimicry of Yahweh's flesh eating and blood drinking at the altar.
Christianity's own members and leaders CONFIRM that 'god'-Yahweh is a drinker of innocent blood of the slain.
