Jesus killed children

#1  Postby Arcanyn » Jan 03, 2012 3:51 pm

Jesus said that to follow him, we must become like children. But Jesus killed children. From the Infancy Gospel of Thomas:

Once again he was going through the village, and a child who was running banged into his shoulder. Jesus was angered and said to him, "You shall go no further on your way.". And immediately the child fell down dead.


There are many similar instances where the young Jesus impulsively kills those who irritate him.

Jesus thought being the son of the creator god meant he had the right to kill children randomly. If you annoy him, he will kill you.

Did Jesus eat the child? No. But evil atheists would have done. Therefore God.

I heard about this a few years ago on Newstalk (Irish talk radio). Some guy was on talking about gnostic and other gospels and this came up. Don't know why it never occured to me to mention it before. Just never came up.
With regard to heretics two points must be observed (heretic and Church).. On their own side there is the sin, whereby they deserve not only to be separated from the Church by excommunication, but also to be severed from the world by death.

The earliest infancy gospel was from ~150CE. If you read them critically, you'll find they're even more fantastic than the usual gospels, with such beyond obvious exaggerations that taking them even remotely serious as a source of anything historical whatsoever isn't just a little naive. Some of them do tell us about developments within Christianity, and the spread of some doctrines in early Christianity can probably be linked to some of these gospels.

Not just children. From the "Arabic Gospel of the Infancy of the Saviour", a 6th C work:
http://www.newadvent.org/fathers/0806.htm

    Then the son of Hanan came up to the fish-pond of Jesus also, and kicked it with his shoes, and the water of it vanished away. And the Lord Jesus said to him: As that water has vanished away, so your life shall likewise vanish away. And immediately that boy dried up.

    At another time, when the Lord Jesus was returning home with Joseph in the evening, He met a boy, who ran up against Him with so much force that He fell. And the Lord Jesus said to him: As you have thrown me down, so you shall fall and not rise again. And the same hour the boy fell down, and expired...

    Thereafter they took Him to another and a more learned master... And when the master hereupon raised his hand and flogged Him, immediately his hand dried up, and he died. Then said Joseph, to the Lady Mary: From this time we shall not let him go out of the house, since every one who opposes him is struck dead.

A scribe is a person who writes books or documents by hand as a profession and helps the city keep track of its records. The profession, previously found in all literate cultures in some form, lost most of its importance and status with the advent of printing.

I didn't ask what a scribe is, I asked what scribes those were who wrote that. Tell us something more about the individual scribes that gave us the protevangelions.

You're not telling us anything, really. You're spouting obvious shit as though it were somehow highly relevant and even profound.

Not directly. He just drove them mad with possession of demons and they ran off a cliff. I can imagine him turning to the farmer with a sheepish grin, shrugging with upward palms and saying, "Oops!"

Oh, I suppose that means he either deliberately killed the piggies, or he was forced to because he was unable to remove the demons without the destruction of a farmer's livelihood. Neither seem to describe the jeebus I always hear so much about, but we can probably just ignore that or something. :crazy:
