The Hypocrisy of Jochen Katz
By Sami Zaatari
Once again Jochen Katz exposes himself for what he truly is, a hypocrite who cannot follow his own criteria. You see, some time ago, in his response to me, Katz nagged to me crying out:
Zaatari thinks it is perfectly alright to denigrate and insult those who dare to disagree with him.But just as Zaatari, Muhammad only disqualified and exposed himself by doing so.(http://answering-christianity.com/sami_zaatri/rebuttal_to_jochen_katz_1.htm)
Katz made the claim, that both me and the prophet Muhammad were disqualified for insulting people who disagreed with us. I soundly destroyed Katz' argument on this by showing that in his own Bible, that Jesus and the disciples insulted people who did not agree with them, I shall re-produce these verses for the sake of exposing Katz again
Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the kingdom of heaven in men's faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to. Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much a son of hell as you are. Woe to you, blind guides! You say, ‘If anyone swears by the temple, it means nothing; but if anyone swears by the gold of the temple, he is bound by his oath.’ You blind fools! Which is greater: the gold, or the temple that makes the gold sacred? You also say, ‘If anyone swears by the altar, it means nothing; but if anyone swears by the gift on it, he is bound by his oath.’ You blind men! Which is greater: the gift, or the altar that makes the gift sacred? Therefore, he who swears by the altar swears by it and by everything on it. And he who swears by the temple swears by it and by the one who dwells in it. And he who swears by heaven swears by God's throne and by the one who sits on it. Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices--mint, dill and cummin. But you have neglected the more important matters of the law--justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former. You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel. Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be clean. Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of dead men's bones and everything unclean. In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness." Matthew 23:13-28
The Apostle Peter insulting:
"But these men blaspheme in matters they do not understand. They are like brute beasts, creatures of instinct, born only to be caught and destroyed, and like beasts they too will perish ... They promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity - for a man is a slave to whatever has mastered him ... Of them the proverbs are true: ‘A dog returns to its vomit,’ and, ‘A sow that is washed goes back to her wallowing in the mud.’" 2 Peter 2:12, 19, 22
So as you can see, Jochen disqualified his God Jesus, and the apostle Peter, in doing so he also disqualified his own Bible.
But recently, Katz even made more damage to himself! In a recent article of his, Katz actually went as far as to say that it is OKAY TO INSULT people! This fool's stupidity never seems to end; here is what was written in his article:
Well, let us go back to the Sermon on the Mount and see what Jesus said right at the end of the sermon. He said:
But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. Matthew 7:26
So, clearly, Jesus has no problem whatsoever using the word "fool" to describe those who don't follow his words. (http://answering-islam.org/Responses/Osama/foolishness_jk.htm)
Notice here, that in Katz' own article, it writes that Jesus had no problem in calling people FOOLS, which basically means in insulting them. What makes things worst is notice what is being written here, the person is saying that Jesus had no problem in calling people who did not follow his words a fool, meaning that anyone who disagreed with Jesus meant that he would call them a fool!
This is direct dis-qualification! Remember what Katz wrote:
Zaatari thinks it is perfectly alright to denigrate and insult those who dare to disagree with him.But just as Zaatari, Muhammad only disqualified and exposed himself by doing so.
Katz claimed that whoever insults someone who disagrees with you disqualifies that person; this is exactly what we see Jesus doing! As Katz' article wrote:
Jesus has no problem whatsoever using the word "fool" to describe those who don't follow his words.
Katz has seriously shot himself in the foot, even worst, he has blown both his feet off! Jochen Katz is now speaking from two mouths, in one instance he says that if you insult someone who disagrees with you, this means you are disqualified and wrong, yet we now see from Katz' own article, that Jesus found it perfectly okay to insult those who did not follow his words! HILLARIOUS!
Katz’ article goes on to try and justify insulting people by quoting Jesus! Before continuing, it must be said that it was an Arab Christian who wrote these comments. However so, that does not matter, since the article belongs to Katz and his name at the top of it, and obviously Katz would not post comments and place them in his article if he did not agree with it. So Katz is just as responsible for these comments as the person who made them.
So as you can see, Jochen Katz is a hypocrite who sets up standards which he himself breaks! Indeed there are no limits to this man’s stupidity.
