and the irony, this article written by a Mormon — who STILL has more clue about the bible than these estimable old, but now creaky, mainlines that chase the do-good du jour but forget their roots.

of course a better answer than “dialogue” would be for all these mainlines to become baptist... i’m not holding my breath that it will happen!

There was a survey from about 2 or 3 years ago that didn’t hold up very well when looked at here at FR, tomorrow I will try to see if it is the one they are talking about.

to equate Judaism with the state of Israel is to equate Christianity with Flavor Flav

This feeble attempt at cleverness rather shows that the right Dr. Wright could use a close encounter with logic. The truly discouraging thing about this report is that Jewish leaders would mistake this motley assembly for Christianity.

It just fascinates me how a person can read the Bible and miss the points. It says in the King's English that we are adopted in, or grafted in,......into what?.... God's Family. That means if you are a Christian by faith, you are now related to Jesus,.......A JEW! Good, bad, or ugly, God's people are the Jews. Jews are His chosen people and we have agreed to join in and He has agreed to accept us in. The Land of Israel was given to the Jews by God Himself. It belongs to them. Jesus will come back and stand on the Mt. of Olives, not in some mosque. The whole Bible is about God's relationship with His people, the Jews. You, as a Christian are allowed to be part of the action. That was supposed to be GLAD tidings. Rooting for the Muzzies, doesn't make sense for a Christian. You are abandoning your own people.

Unless, of course you want no part of Jesus. That is easily arranged.

These misnamed "mainline" churches are led by Marxists who infiltrated them starting as early as the beginning of the 20th century, but really accelerated the takeover in the 60s and 70s.

These church leaders are actually haters of God and are gleeful at the ease with which they have succeeded in turning formerly faithful worshipers into social justice would-be tyrants, their minds poisoned by bitterness and sin.

Jesus is not gentle with such as these:

"You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth..." - John 8:44

So look at actual scripture instead of off the cuff comments.
Compare Jeremiah 18, Northern Kingdom remade, to Jer. 19 esp. vs 11. Jerusalem shattered like a fired clay pot, never to be made whole again.
Compare Jer. 7:14 to Shiloh’s fate. Judah and Jerusalem told it would be made like Shiloh, which was completely abandoned as the place where god had “set his name at first” cp. 1 Sam 1:24, Ps 78:60 etc.
Read Mt 21-25
21:18-22 The fig tree (Jerusalem) cursed to NEVER produce fruit again. Mountain(Jerusalem) cast into sea(destroyed)
21:28-46 The kingdom taken from Jews given to a nation bringing forth fruits
22:1-14 Destroyed the Jew who were murderers of the prophets.
23 many woes and condemnation for the Jews.
23:36-39 Jerusalem to be left desolate
24 Jerusalem to be destroyed.
25:1-13 five foolish virgins(Jerusalem/Jews) shut out of the marriage feast
25:14-46 Wicked servant(Jews/Jerusalem) has everything taken from him and cast into outer darkness

**** In a recent Pew survey, white mainline Protestants knew less about Christianity and the Bible than Mormons,****

Now, THAT is hard to believe! My personal dealings with Mormons have shown them to be almost totally ignorant of Bible doctrine.

But then, this also shows how far these so-called “mainline” Protestants have degenerated. Why the MSM continues to look upon these “mainline” churches as being a reflection of true Christianity is beyond me.

End times apostasy.

Matthew 7:13 (NIV)
"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.
