You might want to repeat that again to your ET friends who continuously not only insult people around here, but condemn them to hell as well.

Yes, I do have a song in my heart. Read the thread titled "Hope Beyond Hell"

"To your ET friends"...don't you know when to QUIT? I like this thread and don't want it closed. Okay, I'll tell my ET friend to stop. ET friend? Please stop? Better? Can we move on now......


So that we not mistakenly think the Jews are a special race outside of the honor afforded them through God, we must consider that the Jews are not God's chosen people through any merit of their own, but because He loves them as a nation:

The LORD did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people: Deuteronomy 7:7-8

We gentile Christians are sinners, as also the Jews are sinners, and we all, gentile and Jew, are in need of redemption.

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Romans 3;23

Nevertheless, God's commitment to Israel IS eternal and will not fail!!

As great as was their calling, so too, great is the cost of their failing in that calling, as Moses warned the children of Israel it would be.

But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee...(Deuteronomy 28:15-68)

The Jews (as all of us) have rebelled, sinned, and for a time, have turned their back on God, yet in His love for Israel, God did not make a complete end of them:

Therefore say, Thus says the Lord GOD; Although I have cast them far off among the heathen, and although I have scattered them among the countries, yet will I be to them as a little sanctuary in the countries where they shall come. ( Ezekiel 11:16)

Therefore say, Thus says the Lord GOD; I will even gather you from the people, and assemble you out of the countries where ye have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel. (Ezekiel 11:17)


Yes, God does love Israel, and the Jewish people all over the world are His chosen ones. HE SAID THIS and ORDAINED IT TO BE SO!....................................FINAL ANSWER!!

You give yourself and beliefs waaaay too much credit. It is more a morbid curiosity to view the how people delude themselves with the nonsense of religion.

Personally I find the levels to which many here believe in this nonsense down right scary, not that I care what you do in your own life, but in the fact you vote and legislate your nonsense upon all.

And clearly the truth will not be found, not even close, as truth is the enemy of religion.

Good, so let this god support them, he can do it, he's all powerful, right?
I am sick and tired of the US taxpayer being fleeced to support the murder of Palestinian children, or their parents, or their grandparents.

And I really hate to burst your bubble, but you don't have the final answer. You have a passage from a book, a book of fables and urban legend, tainted by the men that wrote it, and edited an untold number of times.

Christians are "editing" history books in Texas today, do you really believe that your book hasn't been so polluted with the delusions of people with agendas over the centuries?
