New Testament: Intolerance

    Matthew

  1. While insulting the Pharisees and Sadducees, John the Baptist calls an entire generation a "generation of vipers." 3:7

  2. Those who bear bad fruit will be cut down and burned "with unquenchable fire." 3:10, 12

  3. Jesus says that most people will go to hell. 7:13-14

  4. Those who fail to bear "good fruit" will be "hewn down, and cast into the fire." 7:19

  5. "The children of the kingdom [the Jews] shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth." 8:12

  6. Jesus tells his disciples to keep away from the Gentiles and Samaritans, and go only to the Israelites. 10:5-6

  7. Cities that neither "receive" the disciples nor "hear" their words will be destroyed by God. It will be worse for them than for Sodom and Gomorrah. And you know what God supposedly did to those poor folks (see Gen 19:24). 10:14-15

  8. Families will be torn apart because of Jesus (this is one of the few "prophecies" in the Bible that has actually come true). "Brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death." 10:21

  9. "Whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven." 10:33

  10. Jesus says that he has come to destroy families by making family members hate each other. He has "come not to send peace, but a sword." 10:34-36

  11. Jesus condemns entire cities to dreadful deaths and to the eternal torment of hell because they didn't care for his preaching. 11:20-24

  12. "He that is not with me is against me." 12:30

  13. "Whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him." 12:31-32

  16. "Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up." 15:13

  17. Jesus refuses to heal the Canaanite woman's possessed daughter, saying "it is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to the dogs." 15:22-26

  18. The ever-so-kind Jesus calls the Pharisees "hypocrites, wicked, and adulterous." Why? For asking for some evidence that Jesus is who he claims to be. 16:3-4

  19. "Whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder." Whoever falls on "this stone" (Jesus) will be broken, and whomever the stone falls on will be ground into powder. 21:44

  20. In the parable of the marriage feast, the king sends his servants to gather everyone they can find, both bad and good, to come to the wedding feast. One guest didn't have on his wedding garment, so the king tied him up and "cast him into the outer darkness" where "there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth." 22:1-14

  21. Jesus condemns the Jews for being "the children of them which killed the prophets." 23:31

    Mark

  27. Jesus becomes angry at those who said that he had "an unclean spirit," so he announces the unforgivable sin: "blasphemy against the Holy Ghost." 3:29

  28. Any city that doesn't "receive" the followers of Jesus will be destroyed in a manner even more savage than that of Sodom and Gomorrah. 6:11

  29. Jesus initially refuses to cast out a devil from a Syrophoenician (non-Jewish) woman's daughter, calling the woman a "dog". After much pleading, he finally agrees to cast out the devil. 7:27

  30. If you're ashamed of Jesus, he'll be ashamed of you. 8:38

  31. Jesus says that those that believe and are baptized will be saved, while those who don't will be damned. 16:16

  35. "He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me." If you don't like what Pat Robertson says (or any other Christian), then you don't like Jesus, and if you don't like Jesus, you don't like God. 10:16

  39. According to Jesus, only a few will be saved; the vast majority will suffer eternally in hell where "there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth." 13:23-30

  40. Jesus also believes the story about Sodom's destruction. He says, "even thus shall it be in the day the son of man is revealed ... Remember Lot's wife." This tells us about Jesus' knowledge of science and history, and his sense of justice. 17:29-32

  41. In the parable of the talents, Jesus says that God takes what is not rightly his, and reaps what he didn't sow. The parable ends with the words: "bring them [those who preferred not to be ruled by him] hither, and slay them before me." 19:12-27

  51. If you don't believe in Jesus you are going to hell. 12:48

  54. "He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father."
    If you follow Jesus' teachings, God will love you -- otherwise... well, you know. 14:21

  55. Those who do not believe in Jesus will be cast into a fire to be burned. 15:6

  56. Now that Jesus has come, non-believers have no excuse for not believing in him. 15:22

  57. "I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me."
    Jesus only prays for people who believe in him. Everyone else can go to hell. 17:9

  68. Herod kills James the brother of John and imprisons Peter "because he saw it pleased the Jews." 12:1-3

  69. Herod killed James the brother of John and imprisoned Peter "because he saw it pleased the Jews." (Jews just love to see Christians killed with the sword.) 12:1-3

  70. Paul and the Holy Ghost conspire together to make Elymas (the sorcerer) blind. 13:8-11

  71. The Jews of Antioch, after seeing Paul's success in preaching, were envious and blasphemed God. Paul then declares them to be "unworthy of everlasting life." 13:45-46

  72. Once again "the Jews stirred up" trouble and "raised persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and expelled them out of their coasts." 13:50

  78. The first Christian book burning occurs when Paul's converts at Ephesus burn 50,000 silver pieces' worth of books. (A silver piece was worth about a day's wage.) 19:19

  79. Poor Paul complains, once again, of being mistreated by "the Jews." 20:19

  80. The Jews, once again, incite the people to kill poor old Paul. But he escapes and delivers another long, boring speech. 21:27-40

    Jews are enemies to Christians, but God loves them for their ancestors' sake. 11:28

  204. The angels are instructed not to "hurt the grass [how could they? He already had all the grass killed in 8:7] ... but only those men which have not the seal of God on their foreheads."

  248. The basic message of Christianity is "believe or be damned" and from this flows intolerance toward all non-Christians.
