Is Christianity a death cult?
Someone directed this at me and other Christians…
There are paid protagonist and agitators who are part of a PsyOp to undermine faith and destroy Christianity. They are churning out videos and mocking and attacking Christians. They all follow the same script and none of them can come clean and tell you what they want to replace Christianity with. They twist scripture and misrepresent. They lie and insult. Another Paulus had to deal with the same problem and Peter commented that…
He (Paul) writes the same way in all his letters, speaking in them of these matters. His letters contain some things that are hard to understand, which ignorant and unstable people distort, as they do the other Scriptures, to their own destruction (2 Peter 3:16).
The ignorant and the mockers are still with us.
1. Christians have entered into eternal life NOW (in the present) for we are in a different relationship (born again/from above John 3:3) with the creator. Jesus came that we might have life and have it more abundantly (John 10:10) for Jesus gives us eternal life (John 10:28) and whoever believes in him has passed from death to life (John 5:24). Christianity is not a death cult but life affirming because God is a God of the living not of the dead (Matt 22:32).
2. The biggest event in Christianity is not the crucifixion but the resurrection of Christ. Jesus is the resurrection and the life (John 11:25-26). The earliest symbol of Christianity was not the cross but the fish because the Greek word for fish (Ichthus) is an acronym for Jesus Christ Son of God Savior (and he was a fisher of men) and when Jesus told Peter to cast his net he caught 153 great (mega) fish (John 21:11) related to the Vesica Piscis and the triangular number of 17. Like the number 144, the 153 reduces to nine and differs by 9 which is related to beginnings and endings (the Great Precession Cycle). The last two thousand years of Christianity has been the age of Pisces.
3. The earth will not be destroyed but God will destroy those who destroy the earth (Rev 11:18) and “the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea” (Habakkuk 2:14 and elsewhere) God’s original purpose is to fill the earth with his glory — his glory reflected through human beings — will be fulfilled. Christians respect creation and we look forward to the day when the wicked will be removed.
4. The lake of fire (Rev 19:20) describes a huge lake of magma caused by the great earthquake (Rev 16:18). The cataclysm will will trigger the collapse of the corrupt “beast” system and the destruction of their propagandist (false prophet) and their image (transhuman technology, Homo Deus)
5. The accusation and justification of mass genocide is often made by the theologically obtuse and by metaphysical midgets who hold genocidal positions themselves as supporters of abortion, eugenics and war. Their understanding is superficial and the result of confirmation bias as they make war against Yahweh
6. Human sacrifice was common in all cultures and was practiced as recently as 500 years ago. God stopped human sacrifice. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
7. Christians are not asked to become cannibals (lolz). When Jesus declares (John 6:53) that no one will have any part in him unless they eat his flesh or drink his blood he is speaking metaphorically. It means that our flesh and blood (human nature) should become like his flesh and blood. How was his flesh and blood different? Hebrews tells us that it was the same except in one aspect (Heb 2:14). He was without sin (Heb 4:15). Jesus put ego to death and was obedient in all things unto death (Heb 5:18). He was the only human who did not deserve to die and therefore he demonstrated that on this one occasion the immutable law of sin and death failed. The Mosaic law itself failed (Col 2:14). Jesus reconciled in himself the nature of God and of man (Col 1:15) and allows us to gracefully share in the victory because he demonstrated that somewhere in the the spirit of man is a love for God. We love Him, because He first loved us.(1 John 4:19).
