Not gonna pray for Israel. I pray regularly for Palestinians though.
Jesus saves, and so can you at Food Mart.
Saving is easy, just press ctrl+S.
I saved myself a trip by carrying all the grocery bags at once. If Jesus saves me, does that mean he doesn't need me because he did it without me?
I wonder if we will ever see pray for Syria, pray for Iraq, ect. from Christians 🤔
We’re commanded by God to support Israel, God’s chosen people. Since people from those countries generally fight against Israel, that will probably be a no.
Other than the fact that we want them to become Christians, so that they will stop warring against Israel, that is!
Haha! That funny moment when Israel refers to God’s nation of Israel not necessarily the physical state of Israel the country.
So people are being killed and you don't care?
The only reason you are praying is so Israel is because they're "God's chosen people" and not because they are frequent victims of terrorist attacks?
I hate to say this, but political is right.
I think 4JC was speaking about Israel in the same sense that I am, right?
Maybe you're right, I misinterpreted.
The emperor is usually right, get use to saying it, Bower.
Bas avec la monarchie, vive la république!
After scouting through the internet and reading tons of books, I was able to find a translation for what she just said: (KJV) I Bower, now serveth Emperor political, and my heart is now filled full with conservatism.
Okay, in all seriousness, Bower is saying something along the lines of “End the monarch, long live the republic”
Bower, the very fact that they ARE God’s chosen people is WHY they are frequent victims of terrorist attacks. This goes all the way back to ancient times and is recorded over and over in the Old Testament. Mortal enemies and all that, due to sinful family dynamics and a man that didn’t trust God to give him the children God promised to him, but took a concubine instead. (Abraham).
ALL of the problems between Jews and Arabs goes back to that one point in time.
And today, both Jews (in the religious sense - not nationality) and Muslims do not have saving faith.
MrAs second translation is correct.
Oh, so the cause of the Arab-Israeli conflict is because of a story that either didn't happen or happened very differently than you said. Thanks for the history lesson, good to know complex geopolitical issues can be grossly brought down to biblical epics.
I challenge you to study it all for yourself, Bower. You might learn quite a bit, instead of mocking those of us that HAVE studied this history for over 40 years!
Which, I’m pretty sure is twice as long as you’ve been alive!
Oh, come on now. There's no way for us to know if these people were even real or not. I trust archeological evidence over the bible.
You DO know that archaeological evidence has proven the Bible, right?
Certain parts of the bible are true, others are inaccurate.
For example, modern archeologists believe the Israelites WERE canaanites, just ones who developed knew religious and social teachings. There was no invasion or anything like that.
The Bible alone can't be used as historical evidence. If you can find me archeological evidence your particular story happened, then we can talk
Archeological evidence hasn't proven the bible, it has proven some of it. A lot, especially the period before the OT was written, it just flat out wrong. Case in point: creationism, noahs arc, ect. Which aren't scientifically possible and have no evidence backing them up.
How long have you been a Biblical archaeologist, Bower? If you’re not one, how long have you been studying Biblical archaeology? I can tell you that hubby received Biblical Archaeology magazines for decades. I’m not going to sit around trying to argue this with you, because you’ve shown yourself to be very closed minded when 5 or 6 people have been arguing against you. I’ll just leave you with several articles where you can educate yourself on some of these topics.
It’s not my job to prove the Bible to you. But I CAN tell you this—there have been quite a few atheists who set out to disprove the Bible and studied all of this in depth only to become Christians because of the proof they found. I challenge you to do the same!
