Yes...scripture says that "salvation is indeed from the Jews". And...WHO wrote this scripture? Is it surprising that a group of people would write some religious documents, naming their own race as "God's chosen people"...and then giving themselves full credit for the salvation that God supposedly bestows upon mankind? Why should the rest of the world believe such a story?

Your god's unconditional love doesn't discriminate.

You really need to get over yourself.

P.S. Also your "best friend" once said, "Judge not and ye shall not be judged." You've been waxing awfully judgmental lately. You need to learn to love just like your god.
Remember Romans 5:8 God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. In other words. Hate the sin,love the sinner.

Exactly, that's why I have love for you Light, and Thaskalos…..But I don't love Boxcar for some reason, even though he's a brother in Christ....Wonder why that is?

So what's a little cannibalism among the literal minded?

Archaeology, science, history is all besides the point.

The phoenicians.....

“At particular times of danger, for example war or natural disaster, human sacrifices, largely children, were also made as indicated in exaggerated biblical and Roman references, in Phoenician colonies, and in art. Where this rite, in imitation of the sacrifice by El of his own son, was performed is known as a topheth (tophet), and the act of sacrifice molk. The victims were killed by fire, although it is not clear precisely how, and there is no archaeological evidence from Phoenicia itself, only its colonies.”

It took a few do-overs and many genocides. And it looks like he is still messing around.

“It was a custom of the ancients in great crises of danger for the rulers of a city or nation, in order to avert the common ruin, to give up the most beloved of their children for sacrifice as a ransom to the avenging daemons; and those who were thus given up were sacrificed with mystic rites.

Cronus then, whom the Phoenicians call Elus, who was king of the country and subsequently, after his decease, was deified as the star Saturn, had by a nymph of the country named Anobret an only begotten son, whom they on this account called Iedud, the only begotten being still so called among the Phoenicians;

and when very great dangers from war had beset the country, he arrayed his son in royal apparel, and prepared an altar, and sacrificed him.”

These last few post By Boxcar can't go unrecognized.

The last few post by the entity referred to as "Boxcar" leaves no doubt.

Tell us, please, who the WE and US are in the verse, and why.

Furthermore, a while back you said your god cannot hate anything because he loves, loves, loves, loves, loves, loves -- and loves some more -- infinitely, in fact. But now you're contradicting yourself. You're saying now that your god hates sin???? And you say this after telling us how good and necessary sin is for us!? How natural sin is????

How long have you been so internally conflicted?

Do you have a link for that, Vig? Interesting quote.

Then you need to repent and make that right with the Lord, for it is written:

1 John 3:10
10 By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother.
NASB

I don't think Boxcar ever said that or even remotely hinted that.

Positionally, (by Justification) I'm perfect in Christ because God sees clothed in Christ's righteousness -- not my own. But practically, not so much...

Scripture doesn't say that salvation is OF the Jews -- but that it's FROM the Jews. Was not Jesus a Jew? Did not the nation of Israel bring forth the promised Messiah who would fulfill the Abrahamic Covenant by bringing salvation to the whole world (Jews and Gentiles)?

But you also conveniently forget that the Jews who wrote scripture were at the same time brutally honest about their own failings; for they often wrote about themselves in the most unflattering terms.
