Did the Judeo-Christian god (YHWH) command human sacrifice?

24 Sep

Seems like good ol’ YHWH liked having babies killed, yet the majority of the western world worships him:

Ezekiel 20: 25-26

25 I also gave them over to statutes that were not good and laws they could not live by; 26 I let them become defiled through their gifts-the sacrifice of every firstborn -that I might fill them with horror so they would know that I am the LORD .’

Also don’t forget about when YHWH asked Abraham to sacrifice isaac..and Abraham wasn’t like “isn’t this out of character for you?”

I find it amazing how people don’t read about the passages in the bible where god slaughters children and babies for what their parents did and they don’t stop and think ..”hmm..maybe if god is depicted here in the bible as being a genocidal homicidal baby killing maniac, it may not be a book actually written by god but by men…”

God Kills da babies:

1 Samuel Chapter 15

2 This is what the LORD Almighty says: ‘I will punish the Amalekites for what they did to Israel when they waylaid them as they came up from Egypt. 3 Now go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy everything that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.’ “

God punishes babies for what their parents did:

Exodus Chapter 20

5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me.

Exodus Chapter 37

Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children and their children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation.

Jeremiah 32:18

You show love to thousands but bring the punishment for the fathers’ sins into the laps of their children after them. O great and powerful God, whose name is the LORD Almighty,

But..god said it is WRONG to punish children for the sins of their parents:

2 Chronicles 25

4 Yet he did not put their sons to death, but acted in accordance with what is written in the Law, in the Book of Moses, where the LORD commanded: “Fathers shall not be put to death for their children, nor children put to death for their fathers; each is to die for his own sins.”

The bible is fun..so many contradictions..a homicidal maniac god..baby killing god at that..and everyone loves him *shrugs*

Don’t forget he command his people to commit ritual genital mutilation on their babies as a sign of their devotion to him. (circumcision)

    You know what, when I was still in the Navy in Restriction all we had to read was a bible and go figure everyone locked up with me were thumpers…I brought up a lot of those points and I thought I was going to be murdered. It’s funny to see how people react when something they let run their lives is proven to be something extremely hypocritical/contradictary; what have you.

      christianty’s main fault is taking the bible literaly and beleiving it infallible. If they were more like eastern religions that focused on spirituality over strict adherence to written laws, then it would be different.

    Just a note but christians never said God wrote the bible, man did write the bible, and many things were altered over time. There is no arguement or question on that. anyone that truly knows the bible knows what the points morals and stories are. Also most of your passages you wrote there do reference the ideas of fear and others, more commonly from the jewish and old testament where as many of those laws and ideals were revoked. I could go on for a long time but in all reality, to each his own the bible is interpretation. Maybe you should study the satanic bible, it would give you a good comparison of ideals and concepts.

      what does the old testament’s laws being revoked have to do with gods character? My point in showing those stories where god slaughters babies is that it is supposedly the same god as the new testament, and this is supposedly true acts he commited.
      If you are a christian, you beleive the bible as truth, and when the old testament says god did something, you beleive he did that.
      Christians don’t say god directly wrote it, but essentially dictated it to man, or ‘inspired’ man to write it. Same thing. It’s often called a ‘letter from god to us’
      Where are there ‘ideas and fears’ of others in those passages? The passages say ‘god ordered his people to kill babies’ and ‘god punishes children for what their parents did’
      How is that a fear and idea? That is a direct account of an action god did, or an order he gave. I’m not even sure the point you are trying to make. If you are trying to disagree with my point, that god is a homicdal manianc who kills babies, then you have offered nothing in the way of evidence to counter my direct quotations from the bible.
