How many has God killed?


How many has God killed? (Complete list and estimated total)

I kill … I wound … I will make my arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh. — Deuteronomy 32:39-42

The table shows two numbers: the number given by the Bible, if any, and an estimate, when no biblical number is available.

Grand totals are shown below.

Biblical number 2,552,452

Estimate 25 million

So now you know the number one Killer is none other than God- He surpasses Stalin Mao and Hitler

6 July 2012 Note: Since a billion or so Christians (Catholics and Eastern Orthodox) accept the deuterocanonical books as canonical, I’m revising the list to include God’s killings as told in these books. When I finish with that, I’ll revise the DWB book accordingly. And I suppose I’ll eventually have to separate God’s killings into two lists: one for the Catholics and one for the Protestants.

In terms of Killing

Protestants.
