St. John Chrysostom: Some Interesting Quotes About The So-Called Jews

It is considered an article of faith that it is our sacred duty (and privilege) to support and protect the Jews by forking over every collective drop of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness we possess for them and their interests, the assertion was made that we have no business entertaining any ideas contrary to the so-called Jews. (See here to learn how much Israel and Zionism are a part of Homeland Security.)

Let us ponder than the writings of one man considered to be one of the greatest minds of the Christian Church, St. John Chrysostom, and what he had to say about the very same Chosenites who today are working feverishly to douse the world in violence, bloodshed, and suffering.

I don't care if you are an agnostic, an atheist or some sort of believer. I just find it extremely interesting to see what people throughout history thought about these Chosenites who are calling themselves Jews today.

Now, take a good look at what passes as Christianity today compared to the quotes below. Were the people that were lavishing such harsh criticism upon the so-called Jews just a bunch of crazy people? Why are they saying what they are about the so-called Jews? After seeing some of the information I have put up on my blog, maybe you can begin to see why these people are saying what they are.

The reality is, we have been given an extremely sanitized version of Judaism that does not present the truth of what it really is. We have also been given a biased version of history that makes the so-called Jews out to be nothing but victims of persecution. If you don't think this is true....just look at this information about the Talmud. Why do so few people know about this? Don't you think this is extremely relevant to any context over a debate about Judaism? Why don't critics of Islam and Christianity like Sam Harris ever talk about some of the crazy writings in the Talmud or other Jewish writings? That being said about Sam Harris... at least he did say this.

Now, see below for some quotes from St. John Chrysostom:

“The Jews are more savage than any highwaymen and do greater harm to those who have fallen among them. They do not simply strip off their victim’s clothes nor inflict wounds on his body as did those robbers on the road to Jericho. Rather, the Jews mortally hurt their victim’s soul, inflicting ten thousand wounds, and leave it lying in a pit of ungodliness…

Do you think the Jews are wiser than the Fathers who came from everywhere in the world? The Jews are the most miserable and wretched of all men, and therefore we must make secure the flock of Christ. As long as no wild beast disturbs the flock, shepherds, as they stretch out under an oak or pine tree and play their flutes, let their sheep go off to graze with full freedom. But when the shepherds feel that the wolves will raid, they are quick to throw down the flute and pick up their slingshots; they cast aside the pipe of reeds and arm themselves with clubs and stones. They take their stand in front of the flock, raise a loud and piercing shout, and oftentimes the sound of their shout drives the wolf away before he strikes. I too in the past frolicked about in explicating the Scriptures, as if I were sporting in some meadow; I took no part in polemics because there was no one causing me concern. But today the Jews, who are more dangerous than any wolves, are bent on surrounding my sheep; so I must spar with them and fight with them so that no sheep of mine may fall victim to those wolves.
