Theology / Re: Is Christian Zionism a Biblical Theology
« Last post by Puritan Heart on Today at 10:25:35 AM »
I have provided scripture, and I'll be happy to provide more. The nation of Israel's very existence is tied to the promises of God. To deny that is to deny reality. The Jews were elected by God a chosen people, unconditionally. He made a promise to bless them. 

Genesis 12:1-3
"And Jehovah had said to Abram, Go out of thy land, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, to the land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing. And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee; and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed". DT

That's why Israel is a nation today.

Hello again George,

Thank you for this scripture. 

Might I ask if this is the only scripture upon which you base your entire doctrine ??

You say Thank you. They're doing you a solid favor.

Rupert, you've got to ask yourself, why are these good Christians saying these things? Is it possibly true? Why is it that a small group of Christians believe that they are the Jews and the real Jews are not God's children? Antisemitism is a good place to start for an answer. Just look at the hostility regarding them. The second thing to ask yourself is if God keeps his promises. If he does, then they are his people always and their messiah will come to rule them once they understand this. Which is already starting to happen.

Hello George,

May I please request that you justify your answer with corresponding scripture and not with your personal opinion.

Thanking you kindly in advance,

Alexandra

Your responses have been helpful, but I have talked with my Christian friends about this issue and their response is that this teaching is anti Israel. They say that this is replacement theology and has long ago been discredited by most Christian ministers and churches that support Israel. One even called it a subtle form of Antisemitism because it takes away from Israel its relationship with God. He pointed to the historical abuse of the Jews by the Catholic, Reformed, Amillennial and Southern churches. What do I say to this?

Theology / Re: What About the Law of Clean and Unclean Meats and Beasts

Melanie,
   This is "not" the Reformed view of the right and wrong of eating clean and unclean meats. So it's unorthodox.

Why do you keep saying "The Reformed View" with everything? Do you not know that the Reformers held many different views? They didn't all agree on everything. There is no Reformed view, there is only the biblical and unbiblical view. Here is what I think is a good article on what is the difference between clean and unclean animals in the bible. And they come to the same conclusion as Tony.

Greetings all,

An absolute Jewel from Grace Gems http://gracegems.org/

I pray it ministers to all who read it.

The path of the scissors!

(Lewis Bayly, "The Practice of Piety" 1611)

"For who makes you to differ from another? And what do you have, that you did not receive?" 1 Corinthians 4:7

We are all . . .
  fashioned from the same mold,
  hewed out of the same rock,
  made as it were, of the same cloth
--the path of the scissors making the only difference between one person an another. It is therefore only the sovereign love and grace of God, which makes all the difference between us.

No believer should ever insolently demean the unsaved, who, like miserable drudges, allow their corrupt nature to carry them to any villainy, lust, or lewd course; and who damn themselves in the devil's slavery!

Alas! our hearts should bleed within us at beholding so many around us imbruing their cruel hands in the blood of their own souls--by their ignorance, worldliness, drunkenness, lust, unbelief and scoffing at true religion.

What heart, except it be hewed out of the hardest rock, or has sucked the bosom of merciless tigers; but would yearn and weep to see a man made of the same mold with himself, willfully, as it were, against a thousand warnings, and God's many compassionate invitations--cast himself, body and soul, into the endless, easeless, and remediless miseries of Hell? We should the rather pity and pray for such a one who follows the bent of his own evil heart--to his own everlasting perdition!

It is only the sovereign mercy, goodness, and grace of God which has made the difference between them and us. If God should give us over to the unbridled current of our corrupt nature--we might be worse than them, and run riot in this world of wickedness. If the same God visits them in mercy--they may become every way as godly, or better than us!

"By the grace of God I am what I am!" 1 Corinthians 15:10
