Judeo/Christian Scripture is a history of the most compassionate, loving and capable people on Earth promoting and accomplishing a constant movement toward civilization and its finer aspects. Without the Christian influence, we would still be living with the most violent, vicious and cowardly aspects of pagan culture, ruled by a few homosexual perverts, whose imposition of slavery was what Christianity changed and promised a movement toward freedom for all. This can be seen in all ages after the downfall of pagan Rome and its pagan contemporaries. For example, the Abolitionist movement in the US would not have existed were it not for the Christians. Blacks would still be paving their throne rooms with human skulls had it not been for Christian influence. Even today, it is the pagan, atheist, or anti-Christian elements, who continue slavery and victimize humans on a massive scale.

Anyone of any education can see through your ridiculous and groundless accusations. It is your myopia and rationalization, which causes you to embrace extreme perversion and the diseased, such as sodomites. Even increased threats to the children around you doesn't sway you from promoting that which is detrimental to society. Like those you support, you are a sociopath.

It was a world of slavery, created by the pagans you embrace. Moving toward slavery 4, 5, 6 thousand years ago to a system of humanitarian concepts was progress. Even two thousand years ago, it was progress. Even as the Christians started the Abolitionist movement it was more progress.
It is those you support today, who are enslaving young people in sexual slavery and lust. It is those you support and you, who would impose complete ignorance and subservience to concepts without morality. Any morality you have comes from the forward progress of Christianity in the world and nowhere else. You've absorbed it and unless you are a complete psychopath with bodies in your basement, you practice what you've absorbed from what you condemn. In other words, somehow, probably with drugs, you've not contained your irrational incapacity toward true scholarship and have convinced yourself the mundane, profanities you spout are intellect. You wouldn't even know of the ancient world, were it not for Scriptural histories. You're a lowlife supporting lowlifes.
what does that have to do with you worshiping a god that openly supports slavery? what kind of god would do that?

a proven false god would. one that was created by humans. you worship a false idol, and one with horrid morals.

What a load of absolute BS. From the Inquistion and the Crusades, from the branding of scientists as Heretics, the Jueeo/Christian Plague has held humanity back for centuries. That Same Christianity contains within it not only the Justifications for keeping slaves, it also told how they were to be treated.

You've only read that which confirms what you want to believe and only snippets of that. Pagans and atheists continue to represent themselves as Christians today. That's why you had so many homosexuals successfully invading the Catholic seminaries and using those seminaries as jump-off points to molest young males. It's why you had Hitler on occasion claiming to be Christian, when in fact, he was designing a completely Christian free world specifically. Yes, there have been many things done in the name of Christianity through the ages that are anathema to a person truly committed to the teachings of Jesus Christ. Still, historically and comparatively to what you pagan screwball preach, even their destruction pales in comparison to yours(pl).(BTW, if the Crusades had not happened, the Europe you probably hail from would have been under Sharia Law and your women in black bags.)

Judeo/Christian Scripture is a history of the most compassionate, loving and capable people on Earth promoting and accomplishing a constant movement toward civilization and its finer aspects..
"Then I heard the LORD say to the other men, "Follow him through the city and kill everyone whose forehead is not marked. Show no mercy; have no pity! Kill them all old and young, girls and women and little children. But do not touch anyone with the mark. Begin your task right here at the Temple." So they began by killing the seventy leaders. "Defile the Temple!" the LORD commanded. "Fill its courtyards with the bodies of those you kill! Go!" So they went throughout the city and did as they were told." (Ezekiel 9:5-7 NLT)

Make ready to slaughter his sons for the guilt of their fathers; Lest they rise and posses the earth, and fill the breadth of the world with tyrants.(Isaiah 14:21 NAB)

And he smote of the men of Beth-shemesh, because they had looked into the ark of Jehovah, he smote of the people seventy men,`and' fifty thousand men; and the people mourned, because Jehovah had smitten the people with a great slaughter. And the men of Beth-shemesh said, Who is able to stand before Jehovah, this holy God? and to whom shall he go up from us?(1Samuel 6:19-20 ASV)

1) If your own full brother, or your son or daughter, or your beloved wife, or you intimate friend, entices you secretly to serve other gods, whom you and your fathers have not known, gods of any other nations, near at hand or far away, from one end of the earth to the other: do not yield to him or listen to him, nor look with pity upon him, to spare or shield him, but kill him. Your hand shall be the first raised to slay him; the rest of the people shall join in with you. You shall stone him to death, because he sought to lead you astray from the Lord, your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that place of slavery. And all Israel, hearing of this, shall fear and never do such evil as this in your midst.(Deuteronomy 13:7-12 NAB)


2) Suppose a man or woman among you, in one of your towns that the LORD your God is giving you, has done evil in the sight of the LORD your God and has violated the covenant by serving other gods or by worshiping the sun, the moon, or any of the forces of heaven, which I have strictly forbidden. When you hear about it, investigate the matter thoroughly. If it is true that this detestable thing has been done in Israel, then that man or woman must be taken to the gates of the town and stoned to death.(Deuteronomy 17:2-5 NLT)

Suppose you hear in one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you that some worthless rabble among you have led their fellow citizens astray by encouraging them to worship foreign gods. In such cases, you must examine the facts carefully. If you find it is true and can prove that such a detestable act has occurred among you, you must attack that town and completely destroy all its inhabitants, as well as all the livestock. Then you must pile all the plunder in the middle of the street and burn it. Put the entire town to the torch as a burnt offering to the LORD your God. That town must remain a ruin forever; it may never be rebuilt. Keep none of the plunder that has been set apart for destruction. Then the LORD will turn from his fierce anger and be merciful to you. He will have compassion on you and make you a great nation, just as he solemnly promised your ancestors. "The LORD your God will be merciful only if you obey him and keep all the commands I am giving you today, doing what is pleasing to him." (Deuteronomy 13:13-19 NLT)

<quoted text>
Typically undereducated, rebellious dope-head troll. Scripture specifically set down laws of death dealing with rape and murder. As to the "genocide" reference, you are referring to an infected tribe of people with STDs that were already suffering and dying and infecting the nation of Israel. They were wiped out because they didn't have penicillin back then and the whole world would have died if they weren't wiped out..
so how did you come about this information that an infected tribe had STD's?
So they sent twelve thousand warriors to Jabesh-gilead with orders to kill everyone there, including women and children. "This is what you are to do," they said. "Completely destroy all the males and every woman who is not a virgin." Among the residents of Jabesh-gilead they found four hundred young virgins who had never slept with a man, and they brought them to the camp at Shiloh in the land of Canaan.
The Israelite assembly sent a peace delegation to the little remnant of Benjamin who were living at the rock of Rimmon. Then the men of Benjamin returned to their homes, and the four hundred women of Jabesh-gilead who were spared were given to them as wives. But there were not enough women for all of them. The people felt sorry for Benjamin because the LORD had left this gap in the tribes of Israel. So the Israelite leaders asked, "How can we find wives for the few who remain, since all the women of the tribe of Benjamin are dead? There must be heirs for the survivors so that an entire tribe of Israel will not be lost forever. But we cannot give them our own daughters in marriage because we have sworn with a solemn oath that anyone who does this will fall under God's curse."
Then they thought of the annual festival of the LORD held in Shiloh, between Lebonah and Bethel, along the east side of the road that goes from Bethel to Shechem. They told the men of Benjamin who still needed wives, "Go and hide in the vineyards. When the women of Shiloh come out for their dances, rush out from the vineyards, and each of you can take one of them home to be your wife! And when their fathers and brothers come to us in protest, we will tell them,'Please be understanding. Let them have your daughters, for we didn't find enough wives for them when we destroyed Jabesh-gilead. And you are not guilty of breaking the vow since you did not give your daughters in marriage to them.'" So the men of Benjamin did as they were told. They kidnapped the women who took part in the celebration and carried them off to the land of their own inheritance. Then they rebuilt their towns and lived in them. So the assembly of Israel departed by tribes and families, and they returned to their own homes.
SPEAKING OF RAPE:
If a man is caught in the act of raping a young woman who is not engaged, he must pay fifty pieces of silver to her father. Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and he will never be allowed to divorce her.

A servant is not a slave. The Judeo/Christian God made rules about how to treat all people and it was totally different than the pagans, queers and atheists you embrace. Without that God changing things, things would still be the same and are the same in your communities, where drugs, thievery and lack of morality guide the new slavery you condone.
Your ideas continue slavery today amongst a third of the world's population. Your cowardice and refusal to even consider Christ's revelations and complete transformation of the human spirit is the reason millions have been slaughtered in the name of your particular politic. Those you support have intentionally infected and killed tens of thousand of people and enslave seven year old boys because of the lack of morality and rejection of Jesus Christ you preach. The shadowy increase of darkness in our culture is completely due to your influences. You have nothing to offer except anger and rejection. Because of that more people die daily from your drugs and depravity. A Christian home, a Christian community, a Christian nation would disallow such destruction. It would have the courage to stand against the darkness your atheistic views imposes on millions even today. Slavery exists today because of your sickness and ill will. Christ taught and directed against it and that's why you hate Him.
Yours is the false god... the god of the penis, the god of perversion and disease and death.
no, your god was quite clear that if you owned slaves and they had kids, you owned those people...why don't you know your own cult?

the jesus you think was your saviour was just a jewish preacher preaching for his god's kingdom on earth, for the jews and ethnically cleansed of all but the jews.

funny ho you cult freaks don't even know hte history of the people you claim to be a god.
if your jesus was actually a god, which he wasn't as the first god you claim he came from has been proven false, why would he change his own word? i thought the god your cutl attempted to create was infallible?

cult freaks are funny in their ability to ignore their own bible that proves their own god false!
