Seriously, friend, I don't know why you would insist on saying that I am supporting the views of Jews.
If you think you can find salvation by going back to Sinai,
What the heck are you talking about?
I don't care about the Jews, man! God doesn't care about their affairs anymore, that's the whole reason why
Jesus was sent to the world in the first place!
In a nutshell, the Jews (this is going to attract bashing I'm sure, especially R_R) no longer have exclusive rights to be called God's people, when
Jesus came and taught the Gospel, he extended the offer to the Gentiles because the Jews have been messing with the commandments of God since the time
I think you began misinterpreting me when I mentioned something regarding circumcision, right? I wasn't talking about the promotion of physical
circumcision as the means for a person to be considered as a real Christian at all. What I was trying to say about it, is that the Jews kept on
insisting to the Gentiles that physical circumcision was necessary to be a true follower of Christ since Christ was a Jew. But Paul understood what
they did not! That the real circumcision cannot be achieved just because you had the foreskin of your thingy removed, in fact it is irrelevant, but by
a person's adherence to what Christ taught. That is the real circumcision that was twisted by the Jews since the time of Moses, or Abraham, I'm not
sure. During the time of the apostles a scenario involving that dispute would be like this:
Jewish Christians: We are the true disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ because we are physically circumcised!
Paul: Do you obey the commandments?
Jewish Christians: Well, not all the time, no. But we are physically circumcised!
Paul: Doesn't matter. Didn't matter to Jesus. Stop harassing the Gentiles into undergoing a ritual that benefits them nothing.
Jewish Christians: But we are physically circumcised...
Paul: Yeah, yeah, whatever.
And this is how you misunderstand me:
Me: If we believe in Christ and obey his teaching, then we undergo the REAL circumcision, which the Jews misunderstood all this time.
You: You Zionist! You synagogue of Satan! You trickster of souls!
Me: Hey, wait a minute---
You: You are a co-conspirator of those Jewish people who want to usher a new world order!
If you still think I'm in support of this thing you call Zionism (I'm not even familiar with it) then I don't know what else to say to you. Heck, I
don't even know why I'm explaining myself to you!
