"The fool has said in his heart, there is no God." Psalm 14:1 Ben Stein made mince-meat out of Dawkins, and exposed him for the shallow, vain character that he is in the documentary, "Expelled= Intelligence Not Allowed". The documentary also exposed the intellectual dishonesty and tyranny of the anti-God clique found everywhere among "Higher Indoctrination". Fools, liars, and cowards, all of them (cowards because they feel free to eviscerate Judeo-Christianity, but are strangely silent when it comes to Islam)

Let Dawkins make a film about Stein and edit it and Stein would look like a moron -- so what?

Andy...Christianity stands alone in truth....the Jews and the Muslims reject and denounce the Trinity...in very vicious terms. We really can not connect with a hyphen to either Judeo or Islamic ....Christianity stands....alone.

I certainly agree with you, Darby... Jesus Christ of Nazareth stands alone, without peer, in heaven and on earth. However, God IS a Promise Keeper, and every one of His promises to Israel WILL be fulfilled, including Jesus Christ sitting on the throne of his earthly father, David, and ruling and reigning globally from Jerusalem in the Millenium. We have a tremendous amount of 'dust up' ahead, both for Christ's elect and the nation of Israel before that happens....but it is coming.... and I believe SOON...

But, we Christians have been "grafted in" to a common root with Israel.

Andy....with all due respect, Roman Catholic doctrine is not aligned with your scenario. I do believe that many Jews will convert in the end times but God's promises to Israel have already been fulfilled. Christians should not support Israel so that the Jews can easily continue their rejection of Our Lord. No harm to them,of course,but no condoning of their error either. As Our Lord said,"You are either with Me or against Me"....we can not proclaim solidarity with any who are against Him.

O'Pinyon...we have a connection with the Jews of the old testament that awaited the coming of Our Lord....we have no connection with the Jews who rejected Him...or...anyone else that rejects Him....although we hope and pray for their conversion.

Darby...please read Chapter 12 of the prophet Zechariah.... also Romans Chapter 11; also the entire 31st Chapter of Jeremiah, with especial emphasis on verses 31-37. It is not 'my scenario' that I am giving to you... but the Word of God. I urge you to stand on the Word of God, not the doctrines of men.

Andy...I don't expect you to agree with the RC interpretations of these things...Luther ,Calvin,Wesley etc. changed words and removed words from the Bible.Look for the Douay-Rheims Bible on-line, go to the Chap 12 of Zachariah and click on Matthew Henry's commentary....that will at least let you know why I see it differently than you do...the New Jerusalem..is the Roman Catholic Church. :o)

Respectfully, Darby, I disagree. I trust that what we DO share in common is mutual faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.

Andy....Agnus Dei....agreed.
