The Bible loves War and Killing (video)

; Pat Macpherson and Pfc. Sandoval, Wisdom Quarterly
Gog and Magog go at it (again) because Bible stories can be reused every generation.

The Christian and Jewish Bible (New and Old Testaments, which are actually collections of handpicked books and writings) are enamored of "God"-approved war, violence, and harming.

Regarded more as history than spiritual inspiration, these books tell how all humans are to behave. If they do not, they risk being killed by "God" directly (smiting), or by his followers (stoning, pillaging), or by God indirectly (damnation).

The Book of Judges in particular is a bloodbath of the Christian gods (always plural in a book used as proof of monotheism) encouraging war. Even the nice parts are all about sacrificing animals to appease gods and feed them flesh more the way one imagines feeding giants or demons.

No apparent motive, just kill and kill again. The Gods demand it.

Visiting space alien giants, messengers, and overlords are terrible task masters. They demand allegiance and spawn brutal attacks and genocidal policies against neighbors.

Whether this is what they -- the sky "gods," Elohim, El Shaddai, El Elyon, El Olam, Yahweh (Jehovah), Adonai... (space visitors do not want to be asked their names, Judges 13) -- demand of their followers or what humans construe is demanded of them is difficult to parse out.

The Bible literally tells people to make war and kill, while another section records a general order that says, "Thou shalt not kill." This can only mean, kill only with heavenly orders or preapproval.
Whatever the case, the Bible is all about killing in the name of God(s). The titans (asuras) could not be happier, and neither could Western empires that use it as support for more and more wars of aggression.

The Book of Ezekiel is said to have been written between 593-565 BC during the Babylonian captivity of the Jews. Ezekiel Chapter 38 gives a "prophecy" of a war against Israel from a country named Magog and her allies.

Book of Judges is full of mind-numbing , God-approved violence.

Israel, it is said, was a nation scattered in 70 AD, which meant it ceased to be a nation at that time. Ezekiel 36 gives the prophecy of Israel being scattered and then coming back and becoming a nation again.

Zionists say this happened in 1948 when a Western-backed group took land from Palestinians then captured Jerusalem in 1967, attempting to set it up as the new Israel's capital, which is actually Tel Aviv.

It is rare if not unheard of for a nation to be scattered, cease to exist, then roughly 1,000+ years become a nation again. Of course, it did not happen on its own. It was a conspiracy by those who read the book and wanted a self-fulfilling prophecy.
