Why is Christianity so hated?
Well first of all Christians are not actually just Christians, and their bible is not just about Christ. The correct term is Judeo-Christian as the
bible is divided into the old and new testaments. But more so it applies to the dominant religious characteristic of the United States.
But what does "Judeo-Christian" mean? We need to know. Along with the belief in liberty — as opposed to, for example, the European belief in
equality, the Muslim belief in theocracy, and the Eastern belief in social conformity — Judeo-Christian values are what distinguish America from all
other countries. That is why American coins feature these two messages: "In G-d we trust" and "Liberty.
First, Judeo-Christian America has differed from Christian countries in Europe in at least two important ways. One is that the Christians who founded
America saw themselves as heirs to the Hebrew Bible, as much as to theirs. And even more importantly, they strongly identified with the Jews. For
example, Thomas Jefferson wanted the design of the seal of the United States to depict the Jews leaving Egypt. Just as the Hebrews left Egypt and its
values, Americans left Europe and its values.
I have often asked Christians why is it that the old testament which documents the history of the Jews is bound to the new testament when Jewish texts
declare that Jesus is being punished in hell, immersed in an eternal vat of boiling excrement.
Most Christians are unaware of such a text and also for some reason don't seem to be able to assess the implications.
Which other religion has its Holy texts joined to the texts of another group who is inimical to the very foundation of their belief. That is, that
Christ has transcended the limitations of the flesh and further, is the representative of the supreme God-head: The way, the truth and the life.
How many people have had the experience of having what they thought was a close friend who secretly undermined their interests behind their backs, but
was the picture of friendliness and innocence to their faces?
Brothers have even treated their brothers thus and sisters have too. In fact this is the very substance of the mythology of Cain and Abel and even
Lucifer and God.
When the United States declares that Israel's enemies are It's enemies, this is an expression of the bonds of Judeo-Christianity, and a bond which
many American Christian evangelists preach to their congregations as being sacred.
The main reason people levy against Christianity as to why they are repelled against it, is that they say it is a hypocritical cult.
A hypocrite is someone who is divided against himself. Jesus Christ says somewhere that a house divided against itself will surely fall.
Christians say that it is written that the Jews will one day accept Christ and that He is patient in this regard. They admit that the Jews are the
chosen people, although prodigal sons who are on their way back from Hollywood to the farm.
And the Jesus immersed in boiling excrement in hell bit?
Just boyish license, tongue in cheek exuberance, nothing more.
