When starving children are fed, human hands are in motion; when God speaks, human lips are moving. Whenever a man must buttress his actions and speech with divine authority, suspicion is in order.
In the Hebrew Scriptures, suffering ends in the grave, while in the Roman New Testament, vengeance begins anew with the grave and never stops. Belief in an afterlife is directly responsible for the most heinous human behavior in recorded history. Early Christians, far more familiar with Scripture than those of today, rushed to martyrdom. (Matt. 6:25, 31, 34 and 16:24, 25) (John 14:15-15:10).
