Jesus Commanded the Killing of Children who cursed their Parents

By Sami Zaatari

 

 

For some time now we have seen Christians portraying a false Jesus, often when they preach about Jesus, the Christian makes up so many myths about Jesus that when you eventually open up a Bible, you get confused and ask yourself 'are the Christians preaching some other Jesus'?  

Christians claim that Jesus never killed, that is a lie which has been debunked already:

In this article we will break another myth, that Jesus did not make any harsh laws, and that everything Jesus taught is very nice and lovely etc.

One teaching that Christians never bring up, is that Jesus affirmed the punishment of killing children who curse their parents, this law was established in the Torah, and when Jesus came to the Jews he too made sure that it was still supposed to be followed:  

Matthew 15: 1-9 :

1 Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying, 2 Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread. 3 But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition? 4 For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death. 5 But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; 6 And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. 7 Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, 8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. 9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Here we see Jesus rebuking the Jews who were not following this command, that those who curse their parents should be killed, rather the Jews made up their own man made laws. As you can see, Jesus was very angry with them for not following this law, and brought it to their attention, it is very obvious that Jesus still believed in this law and believed in carrying it out.

Christians often like to claim that the Torah laws are no longer to be followed; these verses completely refute that notion. If Jesus wanted to abrogate the Torah law on the punishment of children cursing their parents, he could have easily ended that commandment right there and then, but rather what we see is that he is very angry that the Jews have not followed this ruling.

So we must ask the Christians, why donít they follow this law, and why donít they ever tell us that Jesus believed in this law as well. It seems they are ashamed, and it also seems they are shy, and it also seems that they are so caught up in their own lies and inventions they created on Jesus that they can no longer escape it.
