Now that I can understand, but in this forum it sure makes one wonder

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
Great post. You really nailed it.

Time to open your eyes to what is happening!!!


YouTube - EXCLUSIVE! OIL SPILL IN GULF - Hand of God? Connection to Israel?


GOD BLESS!!!
DALE

Whatever it is, the co-incidences occur as Mental interpretations: i.e. the spill in the Gulf of Mexico's causing oil rushing in the bottom of the ocean is something subjective to contend about. Co-incidence that BP is wasting it's money and good responsibility to the new Hope. The hand of God is the U.S. rather doing the right thing.

Yaah....I know the Christian idea is all about successful walling out and in.

I guess ignoring the question and setting a new status has answered this question.

I hear what you are saying , although i am pro Israel myself, it does not mean they are exempt from being called out when they are in the wrong .

You have a tremendous amount of cheek to demand answers from people whose posts you respond to with nothing but rude flippancy and intellecual vapidity.

But I will answer this particular question, not because you demand it, but simply because I happen to feel like it--which means that I guess today happens to be your lucky day.

Answer

I think Israel as a nation should be held to the same moral standards as every other nation on earth. As Betsy Lane so eloquently wrote:

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

I am amazed at the attacks on Israel.... Maybe all the Europeans ought to get the heck out of the USA because the Europeans displaced a whole bunch of people and carried out many many massacres. Forced a native population onto reservations and to this day have been occupiers of a land that was not theirs.

Talk about having blinders on......

History is full of displacements and migrations.

thank you I did not demand anything, just asked repeatedly as you seem to avoid answering when I have answered all your questions and even offered to read and discuss any link you provided. seemed fair enough to ask the question.

my answers have never been flippant or vapid. you may think they are because I dare question you or have a different point of view. you are easily offended if thats the case. that was never how my answers were intended.

as beautiful a sentiment as betsy's quote is it really doesn't answer the question in particular does it? just says all men sin and are in need of redemption. seems pretty vague
