Matthew: Intolerance

  1. While insulting the Pharisees and Sadducees, John the Baptist calls an entire generation a "generation of vipers." 3:7

  2. Those who bear bad fruit will be cut down and burned "with unquenchable fire." 3:10, 12

  3. Jesus says that most people will go to hell. 7:13-14

  4. Those who fail to bear "good fruit" will be "hewn down, and cast into the fire." 7:19

  5. "The children of the kingdom [the Jews] shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth." 8:12

  6. Jesus tells his disciples to keep away from the Gentiles and Samaritans, and go only to the Israelites. 10:5-6

  7. Cities that neither "receive" the disciples nor "hear" their words will be destroyed by God. It will be worse for them than for Sodom and Gomorrah. And you know what God supposedly did to those poor folks (see Gen 19:24). 10:14-15

  8. Families will be torn apart because of Jesus (this is one of the few "prophecies" in the Bible that has actually come true). "Brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death." 10:21

  9. "Whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven." 10:33

  10. Jesus says that he has come to destroy families by making family members hate each other. He has "come not to send peace, but a sword." 10:34-36

  11. Jesus condemns entire cities to dreadful deaths and to the eternal torment of hell because they didn't care for his preaching. 11:20-24

  12. "He that is not with me is against me." 12:30

  13. "Whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him." 12:31-32

  14. Jesus often called people names. One of his favorites was to call his adversaries a "generation of vipers." 12:34

  15. Jesus will send his angels to gather up "all that offend" and they "shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth." 13:41-42, 50

  16. "Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up." 15:13

  17. Jesus refuses to heal the Canaanite woman's possessed daughter, saying "it is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to the dogs." 15:22-26

  18. The ever-so-kind Jesus calls the Pharisees "hypocrites, wicked, and adulterous." Why? For asking for some evidence that Jesus is who he claims to be. 16:3-4

  19. "Whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder." Whoever falls on "this stone" (Jesus) will be broken, and whomever the stone falls on will be ground into powder. 21:44

  20. In the parable of the marriage feast, the king sends his servants to gather everyone they can find, both bad and good, to come to the wedding feast. One guest didn't have on his wedding garment, so the king tied him up and "cast him into the outer darkness" where "there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth." 22:1-14

  21. Jesus condemns the Jews for being "the children of them which killed the prophets." 23:31

  22. Jesus blames his the Jews (who were then living) for "all the righteous blood" from Abel to Zecharias. 23:35

  23. The servant who kept and returned his master's talent was cast into the "outer darkness" where there will be "weeping and gnashing of teeth." 25:30

  24. Jesus judges the nations. 25:31-46

  25. Jesus tells us what he has planned for those that he dislikes. They will be cast into an "everlasting fire." 25:41

  26. "His blood be on us, and on our children." This verse blames the Jews for the death of Jesus and has been used to justify their persecution for twenty centuries. 27:25
