What do you imagine that you need to know, sweetie? I'm a poster to this forum who has proved that what you claim to be quotes from Rabbi Israel Stein (retired) appear nowhere else on the internet except in your posts on this site and that what is actually available from said Rabbi, doesn't seem to say any of what you claim. But you already knew that buttercup, you're just desperately trying to divert the discussion to anything other than your pathological fraud.

Topix "editors" were never allowed to edit or remove anyone's posts -- that was solely the job of the Mods -- and the threads I create are added to the forum's mainpage with my name next to them as well as any artwork I choose to add.
Further, when I am logged in to Topix, there is a rectangular red editor icon next to my name at the top left of the page; when I click on it, it states the following:

Being a Jew would not make you a better Christian, only more responsible for Christ's death. There is no Jew or Greek under the gospel of Christ. Read Romans as it is full of condemnations against HOMOSEXUALITY.
Salvation through Abraham?

LOL!

Where do you get this crap?

JEWS believe in salvation through faith in GOD and by living the way He commanded, the very God we introduced you to.

Stop reading the Hellenist Saul, the man who never met, never worked with, was never taught by Jesus. The same Saul whom says the APOSTLES have it wrong, the same Saul who was sent away from Jerusalem by the early church, the Apostles of Jesus.

It's a choice, your salvation seems to be through Saul.

Got Jesus?

LOL

What a bunch of Baloney!

Pay attention.

This is the Covenant:

Genesis 22:17
"I will indeed bless you, and I will make your offspring as numerous as the stars in heaven and as the [grains of] sand that are on the seashore. And your offspring shall possess the gate of their enemies, and by your offspring shall all the nations of the earth gain blessing for themselves, because you have obeyed my voice."

"... and by your offspring shall all the nations of the earth gain blessing for themselves ..."

Melchizedek blessed Abraham.
Abraham blessed his offspring, Isaac....
Obed blessed Jesse....
David blessed Solomon....

Jesus, descendant of Solomon by David and son of Mary and Joseph, the Anointed and blessed through John, himself a son of the priesthood of Aaron, came to us as the Messiah.

The Covenant of Salvation in Christ.

How many of those "Christians," though they had not yet barely been called such, who stood in the Temple on the Day of Pentecost witnessing the Gospel of Christ Jesus and receiving the Holy Spirit, were Jews?

All of them.

Be glad that there are Jews among us today who are Christians. Take no righteousness away from them on account of their lineage and heritage. It is what it is, and not one Jew today is or ever was any more or less responsible for the Crucifixion of Christ than are you or I.

The Teachings of Christ Jesus will prevail.

Your post would be comical were it not so bereft in lack of understanding. The Jew do claim Abraham as their rock of salvation. You must have missed Sunday School on numerous Sundays to have been ignorant of this fact.

Remember when Jesus, to the Pharisee's that "God, could raise up rocks as children of Abraham.?" This is the concept and heresy to which he spoke. See Matt 3:9 Try to keep up your comments are disjointed and for the most part POINTLESS.

In regard to the Apostle Paul who penned the majority of the "New Testament." You are not rejecting Paul or Saul of Tarsus, you are rejecting God.

Even outside of Paul teachings there is strong condemnation of homosexuality. Your ilk is best described in the Book of Peter.

2 Peter 2 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption; 13 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you; 14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children: 15Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; 16 But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man's voice forbad the madness of the prophet.

Prepare to meet your God and face your damnation. Since you have rejected God and his ministers, Peter, Paul you have no salvation!

Good luck with that....brute beast!

What would you know about the teachings of Jesus, sacred cow, clown? You have denied him by rejecting his word and continue to do so through your own vanity and stupidity! You are just a silly clown posing as a "holy man." You are guilty of all of the stripes and the scars Jesus bore, without redemption because you have rejected his sacrifice through your vanity and pride.

You need not chide me because I recognize you as the fraud you are. The generation of vipers as your are of the Devil himself. Get the Hence, ver nek, THE LORD REBUKE YOU and your foolishness!

Well, you can ignore Genesis 22:17 all you like.

But, that won't make it go away.

So, may your little Ver Nek sit with you in your corner where he belongs, since you came up with him.

The mirror of Christ is a funny thing, Phil. You get to see yourself in it.

DID YOU READ YOUR POST?

VER NEK is a Joke, just like you and rev ken? Get it?

You are TAKING THIS SCRIPTURE OUT OF CONTEXT!

I can prove that the Scripture says, THERE IS NO GOD.

If I take the same passage in CONTEXT you find

"The FOOL HAS SAID IN HIS HEART, THERE IS NO GOD."

Your misuse of the scripture is indicative of the depravity of your heart. The LORD rebuke you for you iniquity.

I do not fear the mirror of Christ which you reject. I proudly stand behind it hoping to be his reflection in the end.

You in YOUR VAIN pride want to be "all things to men, and god." Unfortunately you fail miserably.

So you claim, but have yet to prove. I tried to prove it for you, but all your alleged non-fiction could only be found under fantasy. You're still free to give it a try to prove yourself a non-fiction writer, but you seem to want to avoid doing that for some reason.

Prove to whom?

Sure, Topix posters must reasonably back up their claims, but if you demand iron-clad courtroom evidence, then this defendant is entitled -- both legally and biblically -- to know who is making that demand.
