Drunk With Blood really is a horrible book ~ and what makes it such a horror is that it enumerates the sheer number of people whom God either killed Himself or else approved of their deaths ~ straight from the Bible!
From the back cover: Who has killed more, Satan or God? (Biblical numbers only, no estimates.)
That's slightly less than 2.5 MILLION people killed by God in the bible, folks.
In the introduction, author Steve Wells, explains how he came up with the numbers ~ he only uses the actual #s from the bible. For instance, in the story of Job ~ God gave Satan permission to kill all of Job's children & servants. The bible says he had 10 children. Since he was a wealthy man, Job probably had more servants than children ~ but "Drunk With Blood" doesn't count the servants' deaths. Which means that these numbers that Steve Wells came up with are actually under-representative of the # of people killed by God.
Steve explains that he also didn't include FUTURE killings ~ those promised by God in Revelation ~ since they haven't happened yet.
The promised End Times killings are ~ Wow ~ a horrendous # of dead people ~ to be killed by Jesus, himself! Rev 14 foretells "one like the Son of Man" swinging his sickle & "reaping" enough dead that their blood fills a huge winepress. Wells calculates that the amount of blood needed to fill this winepress would require the death of 24 TRILLION people ~ killed by JESUS!Read more ›
But how many of us stop to consider the millions of people, including the elderly, babies, and pregnant women killed in the flood? Were all the babies alive in the world at the time so wicked as to deserve being drowned? How about all the millions of innocent animals that were killed? How many innocent first born Egyptian children were murdered so that god could prove a point to a pharoah whose heart he had hardened? How many of us are familiar with the story of Moses commanding his army (after they had already killed all of the Midianite men, captured the women and children, plundered their valuables and animals, and burned their cities down) to slaughter all of the male children and non virgin female prisoners of war? Moses, being very generous, allowed the army to keep the virgins, all 32,000 of them (Numbers 31). How may of us know about King David's genocidal wars detailed throughout the books of Samuel? How many of us approve of god slowly killing an innocent baby to teach the father, the adulterous King David, a lesson? How many parents would tell their children the story of Elisha sending two bears to rip apart 42 children for teasing him (2 Kings 2 23-24) or the story of Jephthah agreeing to the human sacrafice of his own daughter (and god happily accepting) so that god could help him slaughter the Ammonites (Judges 11 34-39)?Read more ›
It is worth stating clearly this is not a book of biblical interpretation wherein an angry atheist calls God a jerkface. This is, quite simply, a play-by-play recounting of a very large number of biblical stories we tend *not* to tell our children.
Evil spirits are from God. Genocide is condoned by God. Slavery, torture and dismemberment (among so many other things) are often facilitated through God. Fortunately you don't have to take my or Wells's word for it -- it's right there in the Good Book.
Finally, we see just how much God takes pride in his killings: "... for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God." Exodus 34:14 (KJV)
