Judges 1

Judges honest appraisal.

It seems Christians are very good at sniffing out evil wherever they find it unless it's right under their noses in their Bible, or should I say in the Hebrew Bible? To them, genocide is not genocide if it is written in the Old Testament. It suddenly becomes 'necessary divine justice'. Apparently, some towns were so 'evil' and did such 'evil' things that it was necessary to the land. Nothing to do with just wanting to grab the land off its occupants then?

 Yes, that does sound just like what the Nazis would say to justify their cleansing of Jews. But Christians don't realise they are condoning Nazi-like genocide. They have been so effectively warped they think their Lord did the right thing in even killing babies.

I debated with a Christian woman who claimed that killing babies of enemies using 'divine justice' (genocide) was not a big issue as those babies would be taken from an evil situation and put into heaven, an apparently non-evil situation. Well, the Nazis believed as everything was an illusion anyway, killing millions of people was just like switching out a more consequential than that.

So, let's take a closer look at Judges 1 and see how much 'Jesus' we can find in it.

1.After the death of Joshua, the Israelites asked the Lord, “Who of us is to go up first to fight against the Canaanites?2 The Lord answered, “Judah shall go up; I have given the land into their hands.

Given 'than land'. That is a bit of a giveaway. Land grab.

4. When Judah attacked, the Lord gave the Canaanites and Perizzites into their hands, and they struck down ten thousand men at Bezek.

Nice...choppy choppy.

6. Adoni-Bezek fled, but they chased him and caught him, and cut off his thumbs and big toes.

How very Talibanesque.

8. The men of Judah attacked Jerusalem also and took it. They put the city to the sword and set it on fire.

They burnt Jerusalem, the 'holy' city? Nothing changes.

9 After that, Judah went down to fight against the Canaanites living in the hill country, the Negev and the western foothills. 10 They advanced against the Canaanites living in Hebron (formerly called Kiriath Arba) and defeated Sheshai, Ahiman and Talmai. 11 From there they advanced against the people living in Debir (formerly called Kiriath Sepher).

'Advanced against'......meaning....went in to kill and plunder.

12 And Caleb said, “I will give my daughter Aksah in marriage to the man who attacks and captures Kiriath Sepher.” 13 Othniel son of Kenaz, Caleb’s younger brother, took it; so Caleb gave his daughter Aksah to him in marriage.

Forced marriage.

17 Then the men of Judah went with the Simeonites their fellow Israelites and attacked the Canaanites living in Zephath, and they totally destroyed[c] the city. Therefore it was called Hormah.[d] 18 Judah also took[e] Gaza, Ashkelon and Ekron—each city with its territory.

More genocide and ethnic cleansing.

22 Now the tribes of Joseph attacked Bethel, and the Lord was with them. 23 When they sent men to spy out Bethel (formerly called Luz), 24 the spies saw a man coming out of the city and they said to him, “Show us how to get into the city and we will see that you are treated well. 25 So he showed them, and they put the city to the sword but spared the man and his whole family.

Trickery, spying, genocide.

27 But Manasseh did not drive out the people of Beth Shan or Taanach or Dor or Ibleam or Megiddo and their surrounding settlements, for the Canaanites were determined to live in that land. 28 When Israel became strong, they pressed the Canaanites into forced labor but never drove them out completely.

Why should they give up their land? Wanted to live in their land! Of course they wanted to live in THEIR land! Poor buggers ended up as slaves in their own land.

30 Neither did Zebulun drive out the Canaanites living in Kitron or Nahalol, so these Canaanites lived among them, but Zebulun did subject them to forced labor.

More enslavement of the occupants of Canaan.

33 and those living in Beth Shemesh and Beth Anath became forced laborers for them.

More enslavement of the occupants of Canaan.

35 And the Amorites were determined also to hold out in Mount Heres, Aijalon and Shaalbim, but when the power of the tribes of Joseph increased, they too were pressed into forced labor.

More forced labour.

Now you can try to rationalise it as much as the best bullshitting Christian can but who will you be trying to kid? Me, you, the world?

Does Judge 1 sound more like Jesus or Mohammad?

That question obviously does not need to be answered.

Here is what the religious Jews in Israel think of Goy (you)...

and here is what they think of Jesus...


What a joke!

Christianity and Judaism are two distinct religious inheritances, despite all the superficial attempts by modern scholars to manufacture a naive "Judeo-Christianity." The very term "Judeo-Christian" is a mischievous misnomer without historical or Scriptural validity.
