No insult intended, just a bit of sadness that you would make a statement so reminiscent of protestant bigotry.

And you are a spinner of words if there EVER was a spinner.

The idea that a Jewish god adheres to Protestant theology is funny ... from a distance. But for the one (such as you) that is stuck in the mindset, it's very serious "business" indeed.

You believe you have to alert all people of the world to hear you ... before the no-name god punishes them for eternity.

You are NOT searching for greener pastures ... as you believe the Protestants are found in the most lush pastures on earth ... and have no need to take their thoughts further.

You believe that your religion is a slam-dunk.

Arrogance is your LOT.

All people in their own individual religions PRIZE their own religion as the one and ONLY crowning glory.

If that were not so, there would BE no religion.

When I was under the spell of religion, I could never in good conscience swallow the idea that a creator would find me any more special than another human ... no matter whether the human was in or NOT in religion.

I am thankful the I kept that attitude to this day, as it is what eventually freed me from all words taught by the language-manipulating theologians.

If I was raised by wolves, what would I know of religion? What would I know of anything but my will to survive?

Humans in religion are greedy. The will to continue after death of human bodies keeps the greed of religion alive and extremely UNWELL.

The treachery of Roman Catholicism has no bounds...
As if it is not enough to attempt to put a monopoly(claim a franchise )upon the blood of Jesus...
It attempt to usurp the covenant of Abraham...
This evil attempts to destroy/NEGATE the ETERNAL COVENANT that God made with ABRAHAM in GENESIS
Gen_15:18 In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:
Gen_17:2 And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.
Gen_17:4 As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations.
Gen_17:7 And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.
Gen_17:9 And God said unto Abraham, Thou shalt keep my covenant therefore, thou, and thy seed after thee in their generations.
Gen_17:10 This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised.
Gen_17:11 And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you.
Gen_17:13 He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant.
Gen_17:14 And the uncircumcised man child whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he hath broken my covenant.
Gen_17:19 And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him.
Gen_17:21 But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year.

WHAT The Bible says

concerning the position of the Jews and heritage of the gentiles...

Rom 11:18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.

Rom 11:19 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in.

Rom 11:20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:

Rom 11:21 For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.

Rom 11:22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.

Rom 11:23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again.

Rom 11:24 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree?

Rom 11:25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.

Rom 11:26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:

NOTE
Rom 11:27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.

Rom 11:28 As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes.
Rom 11:29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.

Is your image of a god named Jehovah, or Elohim, or Adonai???

After all ... the Jewish image is the ONLY image of a god in the Abrahamic theology ... PERIOD.

Thou shalt not make a god OVER into your own Catholic religion's image.

The fall of Israel is
I. Temporary (verses 11-16).
1. It was overruled for the benefit of the world, because in consequence of their unbelief the preachers of the gospel turned to the Gentiles (Act_13:16).
2. Their fulness—
(1) Must be the occasion of still greater blessing (Rom_11:12-15).
(2) Must be the reflex effect of the success of the gospel among the Gentiles (Rom_11:13-14).
(3) Is guaranteed by the firstfruits (Rom_11:15-16).
II. Admonitory.
1. We should not despise but pity them (Rom_11:17-18).
2. Their fall—
(1) Is a warning to us (Rom_11:19-21).
(2) Should excite admiration of the goodness and severity of God (Rom_11:22).
(3) Should awaken hope and efforts for their recovery.(J. Lyth, D.D)

To be stuck in one's own personalized religion is the nature of all religious cults.

The example of most mindsets in the cults are ... "MINE" ... "LOOK AT ME" ... "GOD believes I am wonderful ... and you are evil trash."

Martin Luther, the dead-headed monk, came alive when he became the leader of his newly devised Protestant religion.

WHAT A THRILL for dear old Martin.

NOW he was POWERFUL and he could compete with the pope and show the pope who was BOSS.

Taking from your posts I see that U really think that this religious stuff has always been since the beginning of conscious thought a bunch of crock and a waste of mind, am I right?! Good...ok...how far would U think humanity would have come if their was no concept of a deity? And I don't expect one of your sarcastic or "smart-ass" comments. I DO expect a grown-up explanation (not that I'm putting U on the stand) because U seem to have a utopian view of history without religion. I'm just asking for an intelligently put-together scenario of mankind without that concept of religion. Not about what would not have happen...but what would have resulted.
