The mad messiah Jesus of the NT is little more than a recycled version of the maniacal, criminally insane Yahweh of the Jewish, tribal, theocratic-fascist OT cult.
As an ‘archetypal’ for love or ethics, the Jesus of the NT fails miserably and as abysmally, as does its predecessor, the genocidal, bloodthirsty deity of the OT, that sadistically demands love, otherwise torture, suffering or death await you.
The culturally, woo-filled, cognitive niche; in reality the mental disease of Christ-psychosis, prevents brainwashed cult members from applying typically rational and logical thinking to the fable of Jesus; as they might to any similar religious, cult figure.
Image the public outrage if, in place of the insane, hate-filled Christ-jihadist; a current, fanatical Islamo-fascist, Islamist-jihadist cult leader; was widely reported to have commanded that his crazed adherents must, “hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life” as the mad cultists Jesus does?! (cf: Luke 14.26)
How would we judge this Islamist leader who demanded that we prefer him to our loved ones?! How would we react to this life-hating, world-hating directive to self-annihilation; essentially suicide and self-martyrdom, on behalf the cult leader?!
Jesus, the violent, sadistic warmonger; aside from the page-by-page blood, geo-genocide and gore laced book of Revelation in the NT, one of most explicit affirmations that Jesus viewed himself as a violence-espousing warlord and vengeful retaliator, coming to not deliver peace, but bring war to the entire earth, is found in Matthew.
“Do not think that I have come to bring peace on earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and a man’s foes will be those of his own household.” (cf: Mt. 10.34-37)
The horrific god of the Hebrew Bible harmed all who disobeyed him, but that injury, or death ordinarily was imposed during one’s lifetime on earth.
However, Jesus’ view of violence is infinitely grander, both in quality and quantity.
Jesus is revealed as eternally burning and torturing, those who opposed his religious beliefs and his theocratic empire, branded as the “Kingdom of God” – “tortured with fire and sulphur … tormented … forever and ever” and doing so, with delightful rejoicing. cf: Revelation.
Ethics should not be based on superstitious authority, nor the authority of any cult leader.
Ethics should be based on scientifically verifiable phenomena, and empathy is the core of all ethics. Empathy is a biological constituent of humanity, as it is of many other species.
So-called New Testament ethics, is pseudo-scholarly gibberish that deserves to be rejected from any institution that respects rational, scientific, academic inquiry.
If Jesus was a man and indeed even existed, he had deep moral and ethical flaws. His ‘teachings’ are dangerous to peaceful national co-existence, social and personal relationships, damaging to human mental health and clearly, not a good moral guide but rather the opposite, often nothing but the ravings of a violent lunatic.
