Ok will try not to get political. On the people who moved into Palestine from other countries .before the Brits left

The truth is many Arabs and Jews live peacefully side by side. JERUSALEM is open to all faiths ad it should be. Under the Israelis

THE land of Israel belongs to the Jewish people. It did before and it does now. The idea that a people not need a land ..and only needed one because of Christians.

They deserved that land and a country .period.

I don't care what HITLER called himself his religion was Hitler.period..

He wasn't even human imo

I believe many don't come to faith in Christ, becouse they hear the story, and don't feel that God could truly Love them after all they have done, while others feel they have not ever done anything "bad " enough to need Gods love or forgiveness.
Sad to see that you think your baseless belief is true for millions of people you know nothing about. Your petty beliefs dominate you and cripple your ability to keep an open mind.

To think that your belief is "truth" is the height of arrogance.

Well shoot. I would have loved to have entered into a political discussion about the Palestinians...whom we in the United States are exhorted to 'hate' and 'fear' because of their....wait for it.....

RELIGION!!!!

We're only to think of the Palestinians as terrorists, usurpers, wolves, and child killers, and we're to fall all over ourselves to keep the Jewish State of Israel alive, regardless of the fact that Palestine is older than Bethlehem, and that the Mossad has been targeting Palestinians for at least as long as the PLO has targeted Jews.

I really think the only reason we put "Under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance, and replaced 'E. Pluribus Unum' with 'In God We Trust', back in the 1950's, was to bolster some sort of Pact with Israel to assure the fruition of some ridiculous 2000 year old prophecy.

(They can say it was because of the Soviet Union, and our resolve to differentiate ourselves from the commies, all they want...I think it has a lot more to do with religion than politics.)

And in either case, inserting and replacing those changes, was the beginning of another rise, in American Political agitation and power, from the side of the radical rabid religious right. It resulted in exclusionary language being applied to our very currency, not to mention our patriotism.....very bad ideas.

It's more a shot at fundies like you who lie, distort and deny facts on behalf of your religion.

Then again, I know you can't understand simple things and instead thrust your own warped POV into what people say and do.

Thought I answered this but can't see it love topix

First. You honestly believe they shouldn't Need country..the only people without a homeland. It was long overdue. If they had one before the maniac they could have left ALL the occupied countries.

Hitler was no more a Christain than Gosnell was a caring doctor. His bitterness was just on a bigger scale.

Have Christians persecuted the Jews down history. Yes. DID Christ tell them to..no way. But people use any excuse for evil or power. Not that I believe in Allah but I doubt he tells people to blow people up either.
That is just pure making things up

God told Abraham I will BLESS those who BLESS you and curse those who curse you. JESUS preached a peaceful faith. And the Jews were his disciples. How a religion that claims to follow St Peter who was a Jew ever condoned that is beyond me.

Anyway. Without too much said about the people who moved into Palestine before the Brits left so they could say it was THE HOMELAND..
many Jews and Arabs lived side by side for years. Jerusalem is free for all faiths for worship under ISRAELI rule..as it should be.

Anyway the original thought is Scripture promised the Jews would return.

They have..who knew..God.and those who believe Him

The pol's say they want abortion rare. I personally don't believe a word of it.
But yes if I could get just one woman to look at the long term and opt to have her baby..That would make me glad. Abortion is FINAL.pregnancy isn't in most cases:)

You can deny it all you want, but hitler identified himself as a christian and his religious upbringing and his own words speaks for itself. You don't get to decide what someone elses religion is.

Oh, and he was human. Deal with it.

See my previous post. Hitler identified himself as a christian and he was raised catholic. Facts override you. You don't get to decide what someones religion is, but you are welcome to form your own opinion.

I agree. The hypocrisy disgusts me. I don't mind discussing with rosesz and you and other respectful, intelligent and reasonable people. It's certain reactionary religionists that I will not engage. They don't deserve my attention and respect.

See my last post. But many of the people who are now living in Palestine were sent there in the 40s to claim the land. The ruling Arabs did NOT want a Jewish state. THEY fought wars to keep them from claiming their land. And keep fighting them.

Unfortunately the people who lived side by side becomes enemies because of all this.

As for In God we trust being related to Israel. That's news to me.

The founders of this country believed in God. They were exclusionary in wanting to protect All religions.
It is only in the last few decades that this religion of no God had taken offense at any mention of God.
I know . I lived here here through through all the changes.

No one minded creches or menorah s..and no one was yelling about this stuff. People who wanted went to church or temple or other houses of worship. Others watched football. Who cared. But then it became political..and look out.

And there was Great Education and things to separate US from the Communists
I was a kid when we had bomb drills .every kid had to learn about Americanism vs Communism.
We were scared to death here at the missiles in Cuba.
It was a Big Deal.

The communists were the exclusionary ones excluding God for the state

We did want to show we were different for sure..

Ok lol I'm done...and I'm old. I remember a time when our fights were not so much with others beliefs. We did our best for civil rights..that was the big thing...talk about exclusion. And we lived GOD and thought our country was Great and respected each other's beliefs. Or most people did.

Rose.

"This is my body. This is my blood. Eat and drink in remembrance of me."

Don't you think, if the Lord meant to say 'commemorate me' he could have left the 'bread as corpse' and bodily fluids as wine' bits out?

"Eat and drink in remembrance of me." would surely have sufficed.

But no.

He brought cannibalism into it, not me...but it's your story to enjoy.

I agree on that. Have 2 myself I have determined not to answer . They are insulting and disrespectful.

We can disagree without insulting. And be friendly to boot.

Took me a few posts .But decided it's not worth getting upset over..
So may be they notice it not but I won't answer..
Even though inclination is human holler back!!! Lol.
