Passover is a hebrew holiday that is all about celebrating how Egyptian newborns were mass murdered by a psychopathic god, and how hebrew babies were spared because their parents smeared lamb’s blood on their doors so YHVH would know where his chosen lived and “pass over” their houses.
The Israelites are instructed to bring a “Passover offering” to G‑d: a lamb or kid is to be slaughtered and its blood sprinkled on the doorposts and lintel of every Israelite home, so that G‑d should pass over these homes when He comes to kill the Egyptian firstborn” – Chabad.org
How stupid are Christians to celebrate Passover as their own sacred day?
Not only is the slaughter of the Egyptian firstborn the means God used to release His people from slavery, it is the angel of the Lord who smote the firstborn. In other words, while we can refer to the deaths occasioned by the other plagues as “acts of God” (meaning that some natural disaster occurred), this 10th plague is very literally an “act of God” for God Himself slew the firstborn of Egypt (Exod. 11:4-8; 12:29).” – Bible.org
Why would an all-powerful, all-knowing god not already know who his chosen people were? Why would he need a bloody door to let him know where he shouldn’t go killing babies? And what kind of “good” god would be murdering innocent babies anyway?
Not only are innocent children slaughtered by God here, but the occasion is the basis for an annual celebration by Israel, one that is to be carried on forever (Exod. 12:14, etc.)” – Bible.org
What most people do not seem to realize is that it was not YHVH killing babies in the first place, if this story has any validity whatsoever. The ancient hebrews planned to terrorize the Egyptians into “letting them go” by murdering their babies and pretending their god had done it. They passed their secret message to each other so that they would know to paint their doors with the sacrificial blood so that the hebrew murderers would not kill any of their own.
This should also let us know that there is more to the story than we are being told about the hebrew “enslavement” in Egypt. If the Hebrews needed to distinguish their houses from Egyptian houses, then this means they were intermingled. Why would Egyptians be livings amongst their slaves?
Another thing Christians do not seem to grasp is that their Easter celebration is just a cannibalistic version of the Hebrew holiday, wherein the lamb of God is sacrificed and then eaten (Communion).
I guess it’s hard for people to think clearly when they have been infected with the contagious virus of christ-insanity.
