Or, y’know, that thing called “Passover.”
Or the whole thing with Noah’s Ark where he killed off everything in the world except Noah and his family, and two of every animal. Y’know, no big deal. Just millions of people.
90% of the Old Testament is about God killing people in temper tantrums
Are we not going to mention Jesus?
Oh my god.
Alright, I’m not here to comment on abortion or anything like that and I am never one to bible thump people over the heads, but temper tantrums?! Really? I will never say that God hasn’t killed. He has and that’s a fact that can’t be argued. But saying those deaths were from God having a “temper tantrum” is quite disrespectful and very ignorant.
Passover was the last of the plagues of Egypt. The entire reason they happened in the first place was because the Egyptians enslaved, abused, and murdered the Hebrews. In order to avoid the plague, Hebrews sacrificed a lamb and spread its blood on the door frame. When the plague came, it was looking for that proof of sacrifice as a sign of faith, and if it didn’t find that, it took one itself. I AM NOT SAYING THAT GOD ACTED IN REVENGE. I repeat IT WAN’T REVENGE. The plagues were the steps taken to free the Hebrews after hundreds of years in enslavement. If it makes any of you feel better, he led them to the promise land and when they doubted they could claim it, he let them wander in the desert for 200 years.
Noah is another story. The Earth had become completely void of good. After the fall of Adam and Eve, humanity went on a downward spiral, without guidance or rules. Pure evil was present in everyone and nothing could be done to right the wrongs of the world. God found one righteous man, told him to build a boat, then sent rain for years. And also, this story are in the book of Genesis, one of the most vague in regards to time. We don’t know how populated the world was. So whose to say that millions died?!?
And JESUS! You think that God killed Jesus in a temper tantrum?!? That’s just sad. The evil in the Pharisees of Jerusalem sentenced Jesus to death. Now, we know that Jesus was scared and didn’t want to face death, as he asked God “take this cup from me”, meaning he didn’t want to be burdened with it. But he also knew that his death was needed. That’s why he was sent to earth. When Jesus died, he became the final sacrifice. Remember the lambs blood from passover? Yeah, no more of that. No more killing for the sake of God. Jesus died to STOP that, not to be a part of it!
Alright, well, that’s that. You’re welcome to believe whatever you want to believe. I don’t want people thinking that I’m the stereotypical crazy christian. Most of us aren’t like that at all. I believe in the right to abortion and i believe in the right of equal marriage. I also believe in Jesus Christ. I don’t want people thinking that me defending my faith makes me an unlikable or disrespectful person, I just felt like, for once, I needed to defend my faith on this site.

This was recorded by the Portsmouth Sinfonia in an experiment where all the members of the orchestra would swap instruments with each other and attempt to play them to the best of their ability.
favorite things about this
- literally all the brass starts to get the hang of it and then the crescendos happen and everyone is like FUCK FUCK FUCK??? FUCK. JUST. BLOW RLY HARD.
- the strings are lazy but also the same. like u can tell a lot of the ppl w/ the stringed instruments may already basically know how to play stringed instruments. like there’s definitely a section at the beginning where you hear a good portion going “oh yeah this is like. a smaller/bigger version of what i do.”
- all you hear of any woodwinds is just “pffffttt??? pFFFTTTT???? PFFFFFTTTT I SAID PFFFFTTTT!!!!!” bc woodwinds are fucking HARD and you hear after like the first crescendo half of them just give up. they give up. they’re done. fuck this it tastes weird and my lips hurt.
- that trumpet. that person is fucking TRYING man they fucking GOT this. they may not have figured out notes but they figured out LOUD and they GOT this.
I JUST DIED
I SEARCHED THIS POST FOR AGES OH MY GOD
