Many Christians harden their hearts against those suffering in the world, “reasoning” that:

  • those suffering…must have deserved it…
  • god knows best…
  • the Jews rejected Christ…so got what coming to them…
  • suffering is god’s punishment…so don’t interfere…

The Christian story appears to support this religious insanity. It says that god’s chosen people were rejected and replace by followers of Jesus…and god proclaimed this to the world…by telling a few shepherds and fishermen…in the middle of nowhere…!

That’s like saying….that god has since rejected and replaced all Christians…and announced this to a couple of drain layers…in Marfa, Texas…!  (https://www.eventbrite.com/rally/middle-of-nowhere-towns-to-visit-road-trip/)

Of course…the Old Testament story is no better. It says that god
rejected all the good people throughout the world…and instead chose people based solely on the nation that they were born into…regardless of how good or bad they might be…(because slaughtering an animal a year made all their evil deeds simply go away !)…and proclaimed this to
a wealthy trader and slave owner,
in the middle of
nowhere…who was about to murder his own son…!
