This is an interesting read ...

Spiritualizing Scripture, the Crime

Especially for the "spiritual Israel" crowd, i'm sure ...

It is really funny, i hope you enjoy.


P.S.
Here is an recording of Martin speaking about how Christs words were to Israel and not to the Church. It borders on some of the same ideas that the above link refers to ...

Peace!

Thanks, Ironmaw. My kids aren't really interested in anything religious (who can blame them) but they seem to love Martin. They've watched his old Crack o' Dawn reports and some of his other videos.

Here's a snippet from that link:

Wouldn’t First Timothy 4:10 fit this category?

Yes. "God is the Savior of all mankind." This is one of the simplest statements that can be uttered. A childcan understand it. Yet only one Christian out of a million actually believes it. The other nine-hundred and ninety-nine thousand, etcetera, believe in eternal torment. So you can see why I call this a spiritual verse, and why I resent the implication that literal truth lacks spirituality. A verse is spiritual because it takes the spirit of God for a person to believe it, not because its gems lie beneath the surface.

You're welcome Herefornow ...

Yeah i like Martin, he is a zany character, and he has a good head on his shoulders. I cant say i agree with him 100% of the time, but i honestly cant think of anything that i disagree with him about so much that i would take issue with it.

I really liked Martin's YouTube video on "Adam, Where are You?" It was/is really funny.
