Many Christians like to tell about
the virtuous teachings that Jesus bestowed upon those of his time. Yet
few question the validity of said teachings. Not to mention that many of
his teachings aren't even credited to him.
The Mustard Seed
Jesus gave an inspiring parable for
those who felt like they could not accomplish things. It has become known
as the famous "mustard seed parable". It has become so famous that if
you do a web search for "mustard seed" or even just "mustard", that you
will find many Christian related sites such as "Mustard Seed Christian
Music Store". Anyway, Jesus says in Matthew 13:31-32 "The kingdom
of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed
in his field: Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is
grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the
birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof."
Call me crazy, but I would think
that the son of God would know a little more about the plants his Dad
created. Since when is the mustard seed the least of all seeds? What
about Poppy seeds? On top of that since when has the mustard seed
developed into a tree? I've only ever seen bushes. Maybe they were once
trees but evolved into bushes.... Naaaahhhhh! I would think Jesus would
at least research his parables to help out with his credibility.
The Days After Tribulation
When Jesus describes the days
following tribulation (Matthew 24:29) he apparently doesn't have
the grasp of astronomy that most 3rd graders have. A sad disappointment
for the son of God. According to Jesus "the sun be darkened, and the
moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and
the powers of the heavens shall be shaken". How could the all knowing not
know the moon doesn't give light? And why would he seem to think that the
stars can fall from heaven? Did he actually think that the stars from our
galaxy and others as well were going to crash into us?
Jesus gives us very kindly advice
about being nice to people. Okay, maybe more of a threat than a lesson.
In Matthew 5:22 he says "but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall
be in danger of hell fire". That's nice and all, but Jesus condemned
himself to Hell with that one, take a look.
In Matthew 23:17 Jesus says
"Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the
temple that sanctifieth the gold?"
Then in Matthew 23:19 Jesus
is quoted as saying, "Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater,
the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift?"
If that's not bad enough, Jesus has the nerve to attack hypocrites in
Matthew 23:23, 25, 27, and 29. Is that not a case of the pot calling
the kettle black? This isn't the only hypocrisy that Jesus showed about
calling people fools.
In Luke 11:40 Jesus says, "Ye
fools, did not he that made that which is without make that which is
Then in Luke 24:25 Jesus
states "O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have
Come on Jesus, practice what you
preach. This example could justify all the crooked and dirty preachers
out there, couldn't it?
Jesus and Family
There is nothing as important than
family, right? Well, actually Jesus had some interesting view points on
family life. Of course this is never mentioned when Christians preach
about the importance of family.
In Matthew 19:29 Jesus says
"And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or
father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake,
shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life." So you
have to abandon your family for Jesus to get into Heaven? What's so bad
about having a family?
And let us not forget what Jesus
says in Matthew 10:24-27 which i find most disturbing. He says
"Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send
peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his
father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law
against her mother in law. And a man's foes shall be they of his own
household. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of
me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of
me." Isn't that about the sickest, most disturbing thing you have ever
read? He came to make families hate each other, and not only that, but
your family should be your enemy. That's not it, but you cannot love
your own flesh than blood more than him? This is absolutely sick. This
verse alone is enough for me to never be Christian. I could never worship
such a megalomaniac and egotistical louse.
In Luke 14:26 Jesus again
requires hatred to ones family, he says "If any man come to me, and hate
not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and
sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple." Why is he
so insistent on hatred? He even requires self-hatred. Why do people
worship this guy? I sure would wonder What Would Jesus Do.
Jesus and his Stance on
Often associated with Devil Worship,
drug abuse, and severe mental disorders self mutilation is typically
frowned on. But not by Jesus. In Mark 9:43-48 Jesus says that
self mutilation can save you from burning in Hell, he says that if a body
part causes you to sin, to cut that body part off. His reasoning is that
it is better to go through life with an eye, foot, or hand missing than it
is to burn in Hell. Why don't you see more Christian amputees?
Here's PETA's New Spokesman,
Jesus really did a rotten thing in
Mark 5:12-13. He sent evil spirits into 2000 pigs and killed them
by having them run down a steep hill so they could drown in the sea.
What's the big deal? Think about this. the almighty son of God meets a
man with an unclean spirit. ONE MAN (according to this verse at least),
and to get rid of this ONE MAN'S unclean spirit, it required the VIOLENT
and PAINFUL DEATHS for 2000 INNOCENT pigs? Luckily the town people asked
this ruthless animal abuser to leave their town, but this has got to make
you ask "How can Jesus save my soul if he can't cast out a demon without
murdering 2000 animals?" Aren't pigs supposedly God's creation? Did God
approve of this? Jesus probably wore fur coats and ate spotted owl.
Jesus and R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Remember how Jesus demanded people
to love him more than their families? The same man who demanded that kind
of respect makes a point of saying those who are respected are going to
Hell in Luke 6:26. Is it that hard for the son of God to make up
his mind? Jeez.
Now when you hear someone say "I try
to follow Christ's teachings", well now you know what they mean. Even
though they may not.
