Over at BloggingTheology, the issue of the Biblical Jesus’ alleged “sinless” nature is being discussed. I pointed out that the Bible actually shows Jesus committing a few sins, and thus, he could not be the “perfect” or “sinless” sacrifice Christians make him out to be.
- Jesus beat up the money changers and overturned their tables. [Violence and anger]
- Jesus made some demons enter into pigs and then jump off a cliff. [Animal cruelty and willful destruction of property]
Hence, since their savior is disqualified as a sacrifice for their sins, they are still in their sins and thus going to hell. Sorry Christians, but your religion fails its own criterion for salvation.
Faiz: “True, they shouldn’t have been there in the first place, but the way he beat them out…wasn’t that a sin?
And how about animal cruelty? Letting demons possess some pigs and then have them jump off a cliff seems pretty cruel. Another sin…”
It was a soft whip so they felt no pain. The whip was primarily used so he didn’t have to lay fingers on them.
Your concern for pigs is heart-rending.
What about halal slaughter? No qualms about that?
No it wasn’t sinful. Which law did Jesus break by sending the pigs over the cliff? Sharia law for animals 🙂
Muslims prolong the pain and suffering of animals in death so you sticking up for animals is a joke.
If Jesus is God he can kill and make alive as he pleases.

Bwhahaha, so now we have 2 Christians saying it is okay to send animals to their deaths by throwing them off a cliff! So there you have it!”
I’m sure Allah would have done it differently but unfortunately he didn’t intervene by all accounts.
“Hey Ignoramus, was it cruel to kill animals for the temple sacrifices? How were they killed? (Hint – It probably involved a sharp knife 😉 ).
FYI the temple was destroyed in AD 70 so we are told.
How could Jesus have been sinless if he overturned the tables and whipped people in the temple? True, they shouldn’t have been there in the first place, but the way he beat them out…wasn’t that a sin?
And how about animal cruelty? Letting demons possess some pigs and then have them jump off a cliff seems pretty cruel. Another sin…
