Okay, even for the utterly deranged Rick Wiles, this is really bizarre. He thinks that the U.S. government has created soulless supersoldiers who can “cut a baby in half” or “cut out the hearts of Christians and eat them” because they have no conscience. And that means Jesus is coming back soon. Or something.
“Is it conceivable that we have bred soulless creatures, soldiers without a soul, with no remorse, no conscience, no fear—you can go in, you can cut a baby in half, you can cut out the hearts of Christians and eat them—there is no conscience, there’s no fear, there’s no fear of God?” Wiles asked. “Is that what we have created? Have we turned these monsters loose in Syria?”
“This is Hitler on steroids,” Wiles added. “The Americans have become worse than the Nazis.”
“It’s the end of humanity,” he said. “If these things get loose, it’s the end of humanity.”…“We’re at the days of Noah,” he said. “God is about to say, ‘Enough is enough, the human race has got to end.’”
Yeah. There was no Noah, just like there are no soulless supersoldiers. But I find his choice of words interesting in light of what God commands in the Bible. He says this would be “worse than Hitler,” but how different is it from what God (allegedly) commanded the Israelites to do to the Midianites in Numbers 31, when he told them to “kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man.” Even Hitler didn’t do that.
Or how about Psalm 137, wherein two Israelites plotted their revenge on the Babylonians and declared, “Happy is the one who seizes your infants and dashes them against the rocks”? God commands, or directly carries out, the slaughter of babies and pregnant women by the score throughout the Bible. So by Wiles’ “reasoning,” God is worse than Hitler. In fact, if these accounts were true, he is clearly worse than Hitler. Wiles even references the Noahic flood, which supposedly killed all of humanity except the 8 people on the Ark. Way beyond anything Hitler ever did.
