He gave you the ability? Too bad you have squandered it.<quoted text>
HughBe----Son EVERY people under the sun starting from ancient days are both religious and ethnic. However, their RACE is independent of RELIGION and moreover in any RACE of people there are those who are NOT religious.
Adam---I didn't know the French, the Chinese and the Japanese are both a religion and an ethnicity.
HughBe--- It goes to show that you know very little.
Adam---There is only 1 RACE and its called the human race. You might as well date yourself to antebellum times when you refer to 'races'.
Adam---What Israel or Jews do or do not do is not your domain.
HughBe--- Really? Explain.
Adam---Who put you in charge of determining religiosity and observance?
HughBe--- I am reminded of this passage "Who made thee a prince and a judge over us?"
To answer your question, I shall tell YOU that God gave me ability and the authority to declare His TRUTH. I have the God given authority to represent Him and to call ALL distortions of His words LIES.
Adam--- DNA shows Jews are more closely related to each other than to any other people on the planet.
Explain--- Are Jews more closely related to each other than Chinese are related to each other? Do you know who are chinese? What about Africans?
The DNA of Jews that that you speak of and that shows RELATEDNESS is is a RELIGIOUS doctrine or is it a BIOLOGICAL fact ?
Adam--- Therefore, they represent a people and an ethnicity in spite of your racism.
HughBe--- Spoken like a blind DUMB sheep. Were you being a RACIST when you said "DNA shows Jews are more closely related to each other than to any other people"
Adam---Israel never followed the laws? Which ones are you referring to?
HughBe--- The laws of God.
1.Tell me why they went into captivity.
2. Tell me the reasons for their expulsion from the Holy Land given that in your sick mind they were OBSERVANT.
3. Explain the text which follows and then call your Maker a LIAR.
Jeremiah 7-- "SINCE the day that your fathers came forth out of the land of Egypt UNTO this day I have even sent unto you all my servants the prophets, daily rising up early and sending them:
26 Yet they HEARKENED NOT unto ME, nor inclined their ear, but hardened their neck: they did worse than their fathers."
Cherry picking phrases is the work of an uniformed individual more concerned with literal meanings than intended enlightenment.
Tell me, what does 'An eye for an eye' mean to you?
