  • By profession I am a land surveyor looking for the mark of truth

    God’s Chosen People

    I have a personal attachment to the Old Testament and the verses contained therein. This includes the verses where the Lord talked directly to the Israelite people. In this one-way discussion the Lord laid out directives (commandments) for them to follow and the blessing they would get if they followed His suggestions. I took these directives and compared them to historical events and found them wanting. Personally, I would like to see the Israeli people change their ways by embracing the stranger (Palestinian) and treat them as one of their own, just as the Lord instructed them to do. I truly believe this “example” would create a wave of peace across the middle east.

    In closing I want the Israeli’s to embrace the Palestinians as one of their own, dismantle the illegal settlements and change the name of their country from “Israel” to “Palestine”.
    I believe God is now judging them for the last time. If they do not ask God for forgiveness and repent for their past deeds; then all will be lost.

    I need your help by correcting my misguided view of them.

      Don't worry, there are plenty here that will call you an antisemite. They'll likely be along shorty.

      Welcome to TOL

              How dare you. I'll report you.

              I'm kidding! Welcome, friend.

                      Not at all!

                      The one I had prior was "Theist and atheist: the fight between them is as to whether God shall be called God or shall have some other name." By Samuel Butler

                      Unfortunately, they don't all fit.

                      Prior to that was "a fetus is a human, albeit at the earliest stage of development". I made that one up myself
