Jesus revered the Bible and promoted it hugely despite or more likely because he knew of the endless sick violence commanded by his Father in it.  He knew the effect this had on people in his violent day.  The most effective way to be an apologist for such hideous bloodshed and murder is to enshrine the evil book that commands it and is to blame for it in the hearts of the people.  People who set out to give arguments to justify already are okay with it in the first place.  They don't care and are happy with it and then they try to make the case for this being rational.
Jesus was certainly not a pacifist though he may not have lifted a sword against anybody when he was on earth as far as we know.  It did not stop him from using other things as weapons such as whips.  He sanctioned the Law and the Prophets, the whole Old Testament as the Jews have it. The Law and the Prophets promise that one day this king will come and lead the Church into bloody warfare against evildoers and unbelievers (Joel 3; Ezekiel 38-39; Zechariah 12 and 14; Daniel 2:44; Revelation 17:14; Revelation 2:26-27; Revelation 19:14). Jesus claimed to be this king and that he would return as the Old Testament foretold. When Jesus was not a pacifist it is hardly right to assume that he did away with the Old Testament’s murderous and bloodthirsty laws. He never needed to fight when he was alive except when he caused a violent riot in the Temple. He embraced his death because he said it was right for him to die and not because he thought that bearing arms was wrong.

The New Testament really is far from pacifism. It does not do away with the bloody laws that were formulated by God in the Law of Moses in the Old Testament. Any scripture that commands such acts should be banned for those who have no way to learn sense it is a malign influence on the person who is tempted to kill in the name of God. Many disturbed people have read the Bible for it is so easily available and have found it to steer their urges in an extremely violent direction and to give them the twisted religious motivation to go out and attack and even kill people.
The truth is that we are all disturbed to some extent which underlines how poisonous books like the Bible are and takes us closer to behaving like psychopaths. Evangelical Christians who believe they are guaranteed salvation would see no reason why they cannot fulfil Bible prophecies such as by exploding a nuclear bomb in Rome to destroy the religion that the Bible says is the whore of Babylon. It would be a sin it seems though when the Bible says the whore has to die and God and the saints approve it is impossible to see how it could be. If it is a sin it is not much of a sin.
Christianity is saturated with the thought that God has the right to tell you to kill somebody or to wage war. Yet the Christians hypocritically reject the view of some socialists that if you are in your right mind and wish to end your life then that is your right. Christians reply that it is up to God who gives life to take it away! This is not faith but hypocrisy! No wonder Christian warmongers are not deterred by their faith and piety. If anything it’s a support to them as they struggle with their conscience to unleash evil.
Belief in a divine protector has given the likes of George Bush Jun the confidence to threaten nuclear destruction confident that God won’t let the world perish in a conflagration that will eliminate all life. Even if religion gives comfort and support – a claim that I deny categorically – it is better for us all to do without it and be fairly depressed than to be part of something that will one day wipe out all life on earth forever. Romans 13 says that the authorities that run even pagan nations are appointed by God and not to be overthrown. When you think of all the decent men that would not wage nuclear war that could have been chosen as president of the United States and that Bush was the only one out of millions it is clear what the message is. God chose Bush and you are not to shoot him even to stop him killing others. The war he wages is God’s will in some sense.


Get rid of the likes of Jesus.  It is too near passive-aggression to honour him at all.  And that is at best.
