My desire for Israel…

“Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer for Israel is that they may be saved…”  Romans 10:1

It seems that the Catholic church has strayed quite far from their apostolic doctrines… so much for apostolic ascension…  It is profoundly distrubing that the Catholic church is having to lessen their own belief because it is viewed as “anti-semitic”.  Since when is praying that God would open your eyes so that you would be in heaven with Him hateful, spiteful, or dangerous?  I thought the whole idea of tolerance is that you didn’t have to apologize for your beliefs, and here the church is apologizing for their beliefs.  Personally, I think it is more anti-semitic to refused to pray for the Jews because they have “their own way” rather than pray that God would reveal The Way to them.

I believe the Pope has officially betrayed his own religion for the sake of being politically correct.  I remember the director of the NightWatch telling us one night that when they were electing a new pope, his only thought was “Israel is in trouble(danger).” So, Pope Benedict… what happens when it becomes politically correct to slaughter innocent Jews again?

“May the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, give to you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of His Son…”  Ephesians 1:17.  I pray that one day, we may come to a point that we may wish ourselves accursed of Christ if it would bring Israel to salvation.

  1. Your argument, that it is ‘anti semitic’ NOT to try and convert Jews, has been used down the centuries by those who have persecuted Jews for *remaining* Jewish.

    How would YOU like it if members of other faiths constantly tried to convert you to THEIR beliefs? Something tells me you would resent it – and justifiably.

    Jews do not need to become Christians. Judaism was a comnplete and fulfilling faith for thousands of years before Jesus was born and before Christianity began evolving. Why don’t you try having a bit of RESPECT for people of other faiths – instead of adopting the patronising tone that you have in this post…?

  2. Number 1: I believe it was Penn (of Penn and Teller fame) who once said that if you have a religious belief that includes hell, the most loving thing you can do IS to evangelize. So once again, I say that I fail to see how telling someone how they can avoid hell is hateful and spiteful. However, this is not the point of this post.

    Number 2: members of others faiths are CONSTANTLY trying to convert me to their beliefs. Need proof? Go to a Christian chat room in Yahoo Messenger, then count the number of Muslims and pornography bots. Do I resent it? Not really. Do I appreciate it? Not necessarily. However, it does present an interesting opportunity to dialogue about truth.

    Number 3: It is a sad world that defines religion solely by it’s age, or by how “complete and fulfilling” it is. Allow me to say, Chaldean Paganism was a “complete and fulfilling faith” long before God called Abraham out of Ur.

    Number 4: If I speak what I believe to be the truth, and I do so without attacking another religion (ie, this post is about the actions of the Pope, not the Sanhedrin) then I have had respect. Speaking honestly, I have no patronising tone for Jews in the above post, but rather disappointment for the route the Pope has taken and a prayer for the turning around of the Christian Church.

    Consider this… the church that was commanded to preach the Gospel and whose founders declared that they would wish themselves accursed if it would bring salvation to Israel has just dropped that stance because it was politically correct. So what happens when it becomes politically correct to slaughter Jews like the Nazis did?
