Are Christians Cannibals?

I ask the question: Are Christians cannibals?

I ask this question not to be 'snarky' or to poke fun at anyone. I ask out of sincere curiosity. Why do I ask? It's simple it appears to me that the Bible endorses it.

Read the bible passage below, it's taken from KJV of the bible.

"And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters, which the LORD thy God hath given thee, in the siege, and in the straightness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee:"

Deuteronomy 28:53

To me that says CANNIBAL!

If I am wrong, please tell me how I am...

Would love to read a Christians explanation of this....

  2. If they are not actual cannibals, they are symbolic cannibals. Isn't the bread and water (or wine) in the sacramental rite symbolic of the body and blood of Jesus?

    That verse does sound pretty cannibalistic to me. Is it saying that the Israelites should eat the bodies of their dead enemies in order to terrify them? That's what I got out of it.

    Another great reason to NOT base the laws of the land on the Bible.

  3. Yes, exactly my point! Scary isn't it?
