"Whoever sacrifices to any god, save to the LORD only, shall be utterly destroyed." (Exodus 22:20) Were does this imply a Christian destroy pagans? it sounds like GOD will destroy the pagans to me.

"You are my battle-ax and sword," says the LORD. "With you I will shatter nations and destroy many kingdoms. With you I will shatter armies, destroying the horse and rider, the chariot and charioteer. With you I will shatter men and women, old people and children, young men and maidens. With you I will shatter shepherds and flocks, farmers and oxen, captains and rulers. "As you watch, I will repay Babylon and the people of Babylonia for all the wrong they have done to my people in Jerusalem," says the LORD. "Look, O mighty mountain, destroyer of the earth! I am your enemy," says the LORD. "I will raise my fist against you, to roll you down from the heights. When I am finished, you will be nothing but a heap of rubble. You will be desolate forever. Even your stones will never again be used for building. You will be completely wiped out," says the LORD. (Jeremiah 51:20-26)


hmmm highlight the words "As you watch, I will repay Babylon and the people of Babylonia for all the wrong they have done to my people in Jerusalem,"

I think this is refering to Babylonian Pagans. This is not an open book interpretation unlike what muslims condone wich are irredeemably anti christian/jew

Any more Old Testament jibberish thats already been debunked?

If one curses his father or mother, his lamp will go out at the coming of darkness. (Proverbs 20:20 NAB)

This one pretty obscure but were does it say. Kill all kafirs, kill all Muslims, etc etc. I see a proverb not a rhetoric or a Command to kill.

And Regarding the Torah (old testament) those were instructions to the Hebrews in securing Israel/Jerusalem. Thats common sense.. The inwardly Christians follows Jesus Christ not out of context Old testament dribble. Apologists have used this same old tactic over and over and in reality Christianity is still better than Islam. there IS NO LOVE in islam.

To really bring down a christian find passages of Jesus Christ commiting crimes of various sorts. and with that you will FAIL. Next time read in context.
