True

A remnant only of the physical Jews were going to be saved from the physical destruction on their nation because of their disobedience....... spiritual lesson we need to ask God for how it applies spiritually

Yes we do... I still wonder why the destruction of the Temple and Jerusalem and animal sacrifices is not important to mainstream christians... I know I was never taught how significant it was when I was growing up in the church!

Are churches breeding ignorance or hiding something?

Hmm ... I do not think that it is deliberate -- (at the lower end) not sure about the "management"

I wholeheartedly agree. Something funny is going on. There is just absolutely NO WAY those at the top believe what they are preaching. No way! The more I study..........

There were a quite a few incidents over the years that should have clued me in, but I was so scared of being set on fire for eternity that I just tried not to think too much.

Those at the top have a lot of explaining to do. When I get too angry about it all, I just remember the fruits.
