Cannibalism In The Bible: Det 28:53-57, Lev 26:29, Jer 19:9, Ezek 5:10, Lam 4:10 by therationa(m): 11:58pm On Feb 15, 2008
Few Christians and non-christians are aware of the monstrous nature of some parts of the bible, a book unwisely sometimes called the Good Book. A more apt name would be more like the Monstrous Book. Yet this book is claimed in some quarters to have been inspired by God. Can a good and loving god command acts of cannibalism? Here is the evidence;

Deuteronomy 28:53-57
Because of the suffering that your enemy will inflict on you during the siege, you will eat the fruit of the womb, the flesh of the sons and daughters the Lord your God has given you. Even the most gentle and sensitive man among you will have no compassion on his own brother or the wife he loves or his surviving children, and he will not give to one of them any of the flesh of his children that he is eating. It will be all he has left because of the suffering your enemy will inflict on you during the siege of all your cities. The most gentle and sensitive woman among you - so sensitive and gentle that she would not venture to touch the ground with the sole of her foot - will begrudge the husband she loves and her own son or daughter the afterbirth from her womb and the children she bears. For she intends to eat them secretly during the siege and in the distress that your enemy will inflict on you in your cities.


Lev 26:29

You will eat the flesh of your sons and the flesh of your daughters.


Jeremiah 19: 9
I will make them eat the flesh of their sons and daughters, and they will eat one another's flesh during the stress of the siege imposed on them by the enemies who seek their lives.

Lamentation 4:10
With their own hands compassionate women
have cooked their own children,
who became their food
when my people were destroyed.


Ezekiel 5:10
Therefore in your midst fathers will eat their children, and children will eat their fathers. I will inflict punishment on you and will scatter all your survivors to the winds.


2 Kings 6:26-29
As the king of Israel was passing by on the wall, a woman cried to him, "Help me, my lord the king!"

The king replied, "If the Lord does not help you, where can I get help for you? From the threshing floor? From the winepress?" Then he asked her, "What's the matter?"

She answered, "This woman said to me, 'Give up your son so we may eat him today, and tomorrow we'll eat my son.' So we cooked my son and ate him. The next day I said to her, 'Give up your son so we may eat him,' but she had hidden him."


There may indeed be more instance of cannibalism, but these are the ones I have been able to find. I have already started a discussion about human sacrifice in the bible http://www.nairaland.com/nigeria/topic-112584.0.html.

You didn't disappoint me. Is this a mewling reaction to the other thread (Human Sacrifice in the Bible) on the very same thing? grin

I knew you have been doing the very same thing I hinted at earlier - which is to litter the forum with assumptions which you have never stood to rationally defend even where you've been invited to do so. When will it occur to you that rational thinking is not about repeating the same noise and making duplicate threads under the pretence of being 'smart'? grin

Lev 26:29
You will eat the flesh of your sons and the flesh of your daughters.

This is clearly Cannibalism.

I looked up the Biblical chapter in John 6 and found this diabolical revelation:

Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. (John 6:53-55)


If the disciples did eat Christ, it may
have looked something like this.


Jesus really wants them to EAT HIM! It would make perfect sense if the disciples did eat his dead corpse. Of course you wouldn't want to admit your cannibalism to the unbelievers and you'd have to explain the missing body to the authorities. You might say something like, "He is not here, but is risen, " (Luke 24:6). Yeah, right!!!.

If those were Peter's hands, you'd be sounding all the more unintelligible in your arguements - and you'd need to go one step further to let us know whether that picture was taken in Peter's time. wink

Nonetheless, I'd repost my replies here again to the same argument advanced by Horus on John 6:53-55. Enjoy. grin

Matt. 26:26 -28

"And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins."
-------------------

Mark 14:22

"And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said, Take, eat: this is my body. And he took the cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them: and they all drank of it. And he said unto them, This is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many."
-------------------

Luke 22:19 & 20

"And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you."
-------------------

1 Cor. 11:23 -26

"For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come."
------------------


Acts 2:46

"And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart."
------------------

1 Cor. 10:16

"The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ?

The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?"
------------------


John 6:57 & 58

"As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me. This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever."
------------------


Heb. 3:14 & 15

"For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end; While it is said,

To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts,

as in the provocation."



BREAD is symbolic of the Body of Christ - we eat the bread in the Supper: is that cannibalism, Horus?

The Fruit of the Vine in the Cup is symbolic of His Blood - we drink of that Cup in the Supper: is that cannibalism, Horus?
