Thread: Who has killed more, Satan or God?

    Angry Who has killed more, Satan or God?

    killings God 2,270,365+ Satan 10

    I counted the number of people that were killed by God in the Bible. I came up with 2,270,365, which, of course, greatly underestimates God's total death toll, since it only includes those killings for which specific numbers are given. No attempt was made to include the victims of Noah's flood, Sodom and Gomorrah, or the many plagues, famines, fiery serpents, etc., with which the good book is filled. Still, 2 million is a respectable number even for world class killers.

    So far I come up with a total of 2,270,365 (not inlcuding, at least in some cases, women and children).

    I've read about this before in books, but I can't remember the specifics, but didn't someone write a play which essentially tried Jesus for all the crimes of religion, etc. and put him to death for them? I guess it also reminds me of Crime and Punishment, what a wonderful book!

    One of my absolute, all time favorites. Just like Zatoichi, a battle where good uses a sword to triumph over evil. "Hi-yah!"

    With regard to who killed who, the one question EVERY person ought to be concerned about is -- is Jesus Christ going to kill YOU on the day of judgment?

    "Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I NEVER KNEW YOU: DEPART FROM ME, ye that work iniquity." Matthew 7:22-23

    He to whom Jesus Christ has PERSONALLY INTRODUCED HIMSELF has no fear of that statement, for since Jesus Christ has ALREADY PERSONALLY INTRODUCED HIMSELF to the regenerate person, the Lord Jesus can never later say, "I never knew you."

    Thus, the truly regenerate -- those to whom Jesus Christ has PERSONALLY INTRODUCED HIMSELF, and indwelt, in the MIRACLE of the new birth -- are safe indeed.

    "If there is not something SUPERNATURAL about your religion, it will be a millstone about your neck to sink you into hell." Charles Spurgeon, Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit, Vol XXX, Receiving The Holy Ghost

    Accordingly, are YOU -- whoever you are -- are YOU truly regenerate? Has Jesus Christ PERSONALLY INTRODUCED HIMSELF to you in the MIRACLE of the new birth?

    As one divine accurately remarked --

    "It hath been the astonishing wonder of many a man, as well as me, to read in the holy Scripture, HOW FEW WILL BE SAVED, AND THAT THE GREATEST PART OF EVEN OF THOSE THAT ARE CALLED, WILL BE EVERLASTINGLY SHUT OUT OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, and tormented with the devils in eternal fire." Richard Baxter, A Call To The Unconverted

    "Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, AND FEW THERE BE THAT FIND IT." Matthew 7:14

    "For many are called, but FEW are chosen." Matthew 22:14

    It is none other than Jesus Christ who spoke those words, and it is none other than Jesus Christ who will sit as judge and make the decision of who will, and who will not, enter the kingdom of heaven, and thus, make Jesus Christ a falsifier of his own words if you dare!

    So I ask again, whoever you are, will Jesus Christ kill YOU on the day of judgment?

    "To the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things? For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ." 2 Corinthians 2:16-17
