7 Reasons Why Norwegian Mass Murderer Is NOT a Christian

UPDATE (July 26):

  • Death toll revised to 76.
  • Breivik’s attorney says the killer used some kind of drugs before the massacre — drugs that were designed to keep him strong and awake.
  • Attorney also says Breivik “hates democracy and all who believe in it.”

While the MSM are yakking on and on about Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik being a “right-wing Christian fundamentalist,” World Net Daily (WND) has done the homework by reading Breivik’s 1,500-page manifesto, which he had helpfully posted online for anyone to read.

Breivik is the 32-year-old psychopath who, last Friday, July 22, killed more than 87 people in Norway — 7 in a bombing in Oslo; more than 80 at a Labor Party youth retreat on the island of Utoya.

Based on WND’s research and other analyses, here are the reasons why Breivik is *NOT* a Christian, even less a Christian fundamentalist:

1. He’s a Darwinist: “As for the Church and science, it is essential that science takes an undisputed precedence over biblical teachings.” Answering a question he himself asks, “What should be our civilisational [sic] objectives, how do you envision a perfect Europe?”, Breivik’s answer is hardly that of a Christian: “rationalist thought (a certain degree of national Darwinism) should be the fundament [sic] of our societies.”

2. He says he’s not religious: “Regarding my personal relationship with God, I guess I’m not an excessively religious man.” Over and over again, Breivik goes out of his way to make clear to readers of his manifesto that he is not motivated by Christian faith: “I’m not going to pretend I’m a very religious person, as that would be a lie. I’ve always been very pragmatic and influenced by my secular surroundings and environment…. Religion is a crutch for many weak people…I have not yet felt the need to ask God for strength, yet.”

3. He doubts the existence of God [some Christian he is!]: “I went from moderately agnostic to moderately religious.”

4. He does not pray: In discussing his preparation for the mass murder, he writes: “I have been working on this book [the manifesto] now for almost two years. It’s essential that you reward yourself and enjoy life in this period…. I have been practising [sic] certain rituals and meditation to strengthen my beliefs and convictions. For me, the most common ritual is taking a long walk listening to my favourite [sic] music on my iPod.”

5. He wants Europe to remain Christian because of cultural, not religious, reasons.  Breivik objects to Islam because he sees Europe as being taken over by Muslims, and Europeans as losing their identity. Breivik’s solution is that Norway and Europe return and preserve their historical culture, which is Christian. As Breivik explains:

“As this is a cultural war, our definition of being a Christian does not necessarily constitute that you are required to have a personal relationship with God or Jesus…. The European cultural heritage, our norms (moral codes and social structures included), our traditions and our modern political systems are based on Christianity…. It is not required that you have a personal relationship with God or Jesus in order to fight for our Christian cultural heritage and the European way…. So no, you don’t need to have a personal relationship with God or Jesus to fight for our Christian cultural heritage. It is enough that you are a Christian-agnostic or a Christian atheist (an atheist who wants to preserve at least the basics of the European Christian cultural legacy (Christian holidays, Christmas and Easter)).”

6. Breivik claims membership in the Freemasons (Manifesto, p. 1369), which many Christians (especially the Catholic Church) consider to be a cultic organization.

7. Breivik supports abortion in cases of rape and “if the baby has mental or physical disabilities.” (Manifesto, pg 1179)

To conclude, it’s an insult to Christianity to call Anders Breivik a right-wing Christian fundamentalist. When Breivik identifies himself as “100-percent Christian,” he is referring to himself as being part of the historical European Christian CULTURE. He is not Christian in the religious sense of the word. He doesn’t even believe that there is a God, even less that Jesus Christ is God.

Catholic commentator and media personality Michael Coren observes:

“No intelligent person, and certainly no informed Christian, would regard this as the statement of a follower of Christ, let alone a fundamentalist follower. So why the hysterical boasts that he was a Christian? Obvious. It inflates the bubble of propaganda and lies. So different to when yet another Islamist attack occurs – four over the weekend by the way – and media does everything it can to distance the killers from Islam.”

    Thank you for posting this. Anyone who would do such a thing definitely does not bear the fruit of a born-again believer in Christ.

  2. The SRM will ignore the truth in their attempts to try and discredit Christians. This guy was a whack job period.

    • He’s Christian enough for them then. At any rate, his grasp of Christianity is pretty much what’s encouraged in left/liberal eurosocialist countries (for almost three generations now)– he may very well believe he is a Christian because he doesn’t know any better.

  3. He’s certainly a whack job.

    Also, he seems to be a type of Christian.

    Not your type, certainly. And whether he is or not, his actions do not imply that all people who call themselves Christian will act in this way.

    • Do be so good as to enlighten us on exactly what “type” of Christian he is?

      • His own type.

        There are literally thousands of different denominations of Christianity. And even within them, it seems that many people have their own particular interpretation of Christianity that is slightly different from that of the denomination they belong to.

        As no one is in charge of the title ‘Christian’, he can call himself one and I have no basis for telling him he can’t. There are extremely liberal agnostics that call themselves Christians and then there’s the Westboro Baptist Church, who also consider themselves Christians.

        Like I said, whatever this guy calls himself doesn’t mean that he represents everyone who calls themselves ‘Christian’.

        • The problem is the media have already seized on the label of “Christian fundamentalist” that the Left are using as a bludgeon against Christians here in America.

          • Well, they shouldn’t. But nobody listens to me.

            If they’re going to use it as a bludgeon, they should use it against anti-Islamic Christian fundamentalists who believe violence is an answer and believe the other crazy things this killer does.

            I assume you don’t fall into that category.

            • How is Breivik a Christian “fundamentalist”? Do you even know what “fundamentalist” mean?

              As for your condescending remark: “I assume you don’t fall into that category”, I will not even dignify that question with an answer.

              • I may have fallen into the trap of using ‘fundamentalist’ in the colloquial sense, meaning ‘extreme, passionate, militant and potentially violent’. Which is clearly not the definition of the word, but it is how it is used. So for that, I apologize.

                As for my remark, it was not meant to be condescending.

            • ““He that saith, I know Him, and keepeth not His commandments, is a liar, and the Truth is not in him.”

              Then I hope you eat no shellfish, or else you aren’t a Christian.

              • lowtechgrannie

                Not a scientist, you need to brush up on your dispensations. Also, I strongly advise not getting into Scripture-quoting upsmanship with Sage. She’ll knock your socks off every time!

  4. Christian is listed on all birth certificates of children native to Norway, unless a parent specifies something else. Let’s not start witch hunting Christians as being radicals.. One radical religion, Islam is enough to worry about.

  5. Just what is a “Christian agnostic”??? “An agnostic is one who believes it impossible to know anything about God or about the creation of the universe and **refrains from commitment to any religious doctrine.**” (emphasis mine) http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/atheist, But yet you call yourself by a name of a man you don’t believe in? I mean seriously. I acknowledge the fellow up above as having a very valid POV when it comes to me telling anyone their religion/beliefs aren’t real, valid and true to themselves, but if he calls himself “atheist”, which one is true? “Christian Atheist” is an oxymoron. He has to at least, acknowledge that there is a power higher than himself, no matter whether this power has a name of not. Generally “Christian” implies you not only believe in God (such as the Jews and Muslims do) but that you also acknowledge, by accepting the appellation of “Christian”, that Jesus, as a man, DID exist. Even the Muslims believe that! As a “minor prophet”. (Did y’all know that? And they spend far more words to Jesus’ mother, Mary! But no, I’m still tired of them killing us, so I’m not soft on them, just acknowledging what the Koran says.) Stupid.

    • Islam teaches that Jesus was a Major Prophet (y’all did’t know that) & he is mentioned 25 times by name; that his mother is the second most righteous
      woman to ever live, (second to the step-mother of Moses who opposed her husband, Pharaoh) Did y’all know that?
      Jews also acknowledge that Jesus DID exist, but MOST OF THEM say he
      was the son of a Roman soldier & that his mother (Mary) was a prostitute,
      (Did y’all know that?)
      I bet the Muslims are also tired of Christians like ‘Richard the (homosexual)
      lion hart’ killing them.
      No I am not homophobic -having unnatural fear of homosexuals; God was
      not homophobic when He destroyed Sodom & Gomorrah.
      So sad most Christians are afraid to speak against them, but God is still
      alive & can still make fire & brimstone.

  6. Not to mention that since when did Jesus say mass murder is a good idea?

  7. Here’s a link to an interesting article titled “Conservatives On Defensive After Oslo Attacks”: http://www.religionnews.com/index.php?%2Frnstext%2Fextremism_by_another_name%2F.

  8. Im very sad because this lunatic just gave the left/liberal media fuel to increase their anti-christian, anti-conservative agenda. We will be put in the same bag in a way to take away all our credibility!!!

  9. UPDATE (July 26):

    Death toll revised to 76.

  10. He not only impersonated a Christian,he pretended to be a police officer.
    Truly a wolf among sheep….but then our fearless POTUS claims to be a follower,too…but I suspect that the Marxist/Liberation theology he was exposed too combined with his Muslim indoctrination makes him somewhat agnostic about Christ and hating democracy,too.
    Addressing the police component :

    provided a thought provoking read.
    Pray for the lost lambs and sheep….THE Good Shepherd will sort things by and bye.

  11. Jesus boiled it down to: “Do good to those who hate you and pray for those who persecute you.”
