THE CASE OF THE HISTORICAL JESUS FORCING CANNIBALISM UPON HIS CREATION AND ALLOWING THIS TO HAPPEN IN THE FIRST PLACE
Well here is a refreshingly interesting topic.
As the TRUE Christian should be aware of, sometimes our Jesus, as God in the Old and New Testaments, forces people to eat other people, often their own children or other family members, ewwwwwwww! But, who are the Christians in the 21st Century to say that Jesus was wrong in making others eat their own children and other people? NOT ME! Another instance showing that Jesus is NOT ever loving and forgiving like so many Bible inept pseudo-christians may think. :(
Another mistruth by our resident atheist masquerading as a fool. No True Christian thinks God forces people to eat other people. Hopefully all 21st Century Christians would suggest that cannibalism is wrong whilst also refuting the lies that Jesus encouraged it. Brother - you reveal only your ignorance as an atheist. So now let's examine each of these texts and their meaning.
"I also will do this unto you... You shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it." (Leviticus 26:16)
This verse is talking about plant seed. Not human seed. It is the context of awards for obedience and punishment for disobedience. Nothing to do with cannibalism on any level.
"And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat." Leviticus 26:29)
This verse is in the same context. It is talking about eating the flesh of sons and daughters. It is however for those who wish to read will see it is the result of people who have disobeyed God and are running away from him. Notice God is not forcing them to do this. He is not causing them to do this. It is the result of their own sin and disobedience even after God has called them back to obedience. It is the natural result of continuing in disobedience. It is NOTEWORTHY that God calls this a curse and not a blessing. God doesn't advocate this - but is in fact warning his people that these will be the natural results of disobedience if they continue in disobedience. Hence - God is saying cannibalism is a curse.
"And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters." (Deuteronomy 28:53)
This verse is in the context of curses for disobedience. Similar to the last passage from Leviticus. It is if you read the whole verse the result of the suffering inflicted on them by their enemies during a siege - that they will end up eating their own children. It is a sad indictment on people who have disobeyed God and his laws. It is talking about the situation when people have rejected God and done their own things. They rejected God's blessing and said - We will live life as we want to. God says of course - that actions have consequences - you don't want me - so I will leave you to your own devices and your enemies will come - and since you don't want me - there is no need for me to protect you - and so what will happen - when you are seiged by the enemy you will eventually run out of food - and start to eat your children. It is a warning to them. Don't abandon me. Obey me. I won't force you to obey me - but if you won't then you obviously don't need my protection and so I will respect your wishes and leave. But there will be natural implications.
"And toward her young one that cometh out from between her feet, and toward her children which she shall bear: for she shall eat them.” (Deuteronomy 28:57)
this is happening in the same contest. the result of the people abandoning God and telling him you don't want his help. The meaning is - actions have consequences. From God's point of view - it is a curse. Not one he brought on them - but one that they know will result naturally from telling God to get lost.
"Through the wrath of the LORD of hosts is the land darkened, and the people shall be as the fuel of the fire: no man shall spare his brother. And he shall snatch on the right hand, and be hungry; and he shall eat on the left hand, and they shall not be satisfied: they shall eat every man the flesh of his own arm.” (Isaiah 9:19-20)
This is the context of the people not seeking God. Of the leaders in the community being corrupt lying to their people. Who are misleading the people - v. 17 everyone is ungodly. and wicked. Every mouth speaks vileness. God is angry with them. They don't want him. they have rejected him. They don't want his help or his blessing. they don't want his protection. They are strong and independent. So when the enemy invades - scorches the earth - these ungodly and wicked people rather than sparing his brother and doing what is right - will do what comes natural to the person who hates God, they will feed on each other.
"And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine." (Isaiah 49:26)
This is in the opposite stream. Here Israel has repented of her sins and now God is going to restore her. He will protect his people from their enemies. His enemies will turn in on upon themselves - and since there are many pagan nations warring against each other - the assyrians and the Persians for example vying over the supremacy of the world - they will fight to the death. God says I will cause these nations to be cursed. He is not suggesting that cannibalism is good -but rather a curse. And when Israel is restored - these things will stop in their own land - but they will continue in on the lands where the Lord is not obeyed.
"And I will cause them to eat the flesh of their sons and the flesh of their daughters, and they shall eat every one the flesh of his friend.” (Jeremiah 19:9)
Again cannibalism is a natural consequence of disobedience. His people had abandoned him - and were worshiping other gods. It is a curse not advocated.
"Therefore the fathers shall eat the sons in the midst of thee, and the sons shall eat their fathers.” (Ezekiel 5:10)"I will not feed you: that that dieth, let it die; and that that is to be cut off, let it be cut off; and let the rest eat every one the flesh of another." (Zechariah 11:9)
Both are similar. The fact is - God does not condone cannibalism - it is a curse not a blessing. It occurs when people abandon God,
Hence - your lies are lies. God never encouraged it. But rather condemned it and warned against it.
If the best you can do Brother is cut and paste someone else work then you reveal your ignorance. How about a challenge for you.
Next time read the context and see whether God is saying it is a good thing or a bad thing, I figure one as ignorant as you ought to be able to do that.
As I have said - all you have done is quote a verse - next time put it into a context and try and understand what the verse is saying.
You really are a terrible model for Atheists. Especially atheists who value an academic exercise properly.
I would have thought that a more interesting exercise in relation to cannibalism would be to look at the eucharist. That is where the real critics have more ammunition.
