Stop preaching the gospel to Jews
By Ted Belman
Lately I have had to curtail some Christians who couldn’t help but making reference to Jesus as the Messiah or Lord in the hope of convincing us that they were right. This caused some violent reactions from some proud Jews.
One commenter said in response:
- “Ted, I see that Israpundit has become a cesspool of anti-Christian intolerance. If this is what you want, so be it. It’s really opening my eyes about the true nature of Jews.”
And I let loose:
- Where’s your Christian charity? After 2000 years of Christian antisemitism and slaughter of Jews, are we not entitled to be angry. After Christians grafted their movement onto ours, distorted our scriptures and even promulgated the idea that there was a new covenant with Christians that replaced the covenant with the Jewish people, and high-jacked our concept of messiah, replacing it with a totally alien concept, are we not entitled to be angry. When Christians ignore all this and come into our homes whether in Israel or Israpundit and presume to teach us the “truth” are we not entitled to be offended and to stop them. Christians believe they are superior to Jews and that their way is the right way and ours obviously is not. Everytime they “spread the word” among us they are insulting us and offending us.
When Christians stop promoting Christianity and simply support us as Americans or even as Christians, there will be no displays of “anti-Christian intolerance”. The moment you try to push your religion on us, do not be surprised with the reaction. Believe me, it is fully justified.
The “true nature of Jews” is that they are content within themselves and have no interest in pushing their religion on others. Is it the true nature of Christians that they can’t keep to their own religion, that they must forever be complelled to prove themselves and their religion and that they can’t leave others alone, which would be a sign of respect. Muslims also don’t leave us alone, or you also, and attempt to convert us under the sword, as you did once. How can you complain about them when you are guilty of the same thing to one degree or another, at one time or another.
The answer my friend is for Christians to stop preaching the gospel.
