My letter to the Courier-Journal – the ungodly newspaper of Louisville, KY

Like always, the Courier-Journal posted a letter from some ignorant Bible quoter. This writer claimed that Jesus never said marriage was only between a man and woman. Not sure where he got that lie from. This is an attack on both Jews and Christians who love our Lord Yahweh.  Below is my letter in bold.

I laughed out loud after reading the letter by the writer who made the claim that Jesus never spoke out against gay marriage. What Bible does he read from? I own 12 translations and quickly came across Matthew 19:4. Jesus clearly states marriage is between a man and a woman. I would pay money if this writer could find one verse in the Bible where Jesus says homosexual marriage is accepted.

 

Of course what should I expect from a person who supports gay marriage? I shouldn’t be shocked he is ignorant in regards to Scripture. Of course Jesus stated that those who follow Him can understand Him. This writer, along with homosexuals, can’t (John 8:47).

 

Hopefully the Courier-Journal (I know they won’t) will actually do research before posting such ignorant comments which are anti-Christian. The writer should also read what the prophet Hosea (4:10) once said and take his advice, “My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge.”

Pope Benedict supports Muslims – just like the Pope supported Nazi Germany during WW II

What a shock that the current Catholic Pope supports Muslims and not Israel. For those who don’t recall, the Catholic “Church” and Pope also supported Hitler and Nazi Germany while millions of Jews were driven from their homes to suffer and die.

Pope Benedict XVI criticised the concrete security wall

Speaking in Bethlehem, where he delivered his most sensitive speech yet of an eight-day tour of the Holy Land, Benedict XVI acknowledged the suffering of the Palestinian people following the establishment of Israel in 1948.

But he also urged moderation, telling Palestinians they should not use violence to further their cause.

Speaking later at the Aida refugee camp, he criticised the concrete security wall “towering over us”, saying it was “tragic” to see barriers erected between the two communities.

The Pope, who also celebrated mass in Manger Square in front of the ancient Church of the Nativity, believed to mark the birthplace of Jesus, sent a message of solidarity with moderate Palestinians such as Mahmoud Abbas, the Fatah leader and president of the Palestinian national authority, when he gave his support to proposals for a “two-state solution”.

“The Holy See supports the right of your people to a sovereign Palestinian homeland in the land of your forefathers, secure and at peace with its neighbours, within internationally recognised borders,” the Pope said.

“I know how much you have suffered and continue to suffer as a result of the turmoil that has afflicted this land for decades,” the Pope said.

“It is my earnest hope that the serious concerns involving security in Israel and the Palestinian territories will soon be allayed sufficiently to allow greater freedom of movement, especially with regard to contact between family members and access to the holy places.”

In remarks aimed at the many militant groups within the Palestinian community, the Pope said they should “resist temptations to resort to acts of violence”.

Israel was nominally behind the two-state plan until the recent election of a Right-wing government led by Benjamin Netanyahu which has said it is reviewing its position on the issue. The Pope is due to meet the Israeli prime minister on Thursday.

After two days in Israel the Pope had to cross into the occupied West Bank where Bethlehem is located.

This meant he had to pass through the 10-yard-high concrete wall built by Israel around Bethlehem.

Deemed illegal under international law, Israel has nevertheless pressed on with its construction on the grounds that it deters suicide bombings and other security threats.

In the afternoon he spoke at the Aida refugee camp, one of several housing Palestinian families driven from their homes through the creation of Israel in the second half of the 20th century.

Israel had forced the organisers of the event at Aida to move the stage so it would not be dominated by the security wall but this did not stop the pontiff criticising the barrier.

“Towering over us … is a stark reminder of the stalemate that relations between Israelis and Palestinians seem to have reached – the wall,” the Pope said.

“In a world where more and more borders are being opened up – to trade, to travel, to movement of peoples, to cultural exchanges – it is tragic to see walls still being erected.”

Speaking after his visit, he issued a message of hope. “I have seen, adjoining the camp and overshadowing much of Bethlehem, the wall that intrudes into your territories, separating neighbours and dividing families,” he said.

“Although walls can easily be built, we all know that they do not last for ever. They can be taken down.”

Happy Easter? Never, Easter is a Pagan ritual, enough said!

Sad millions of Christians are out giving thanks to a Pagan ritual today. Easter was, and always will be a Pagan day of worship.

Israel proves Jews are God’s chosen

Isaiah 66:7-8: Before going into labor, she gave birth; before her pains came, she delivered a male child. Who ever heard of such at thing? Who has ever seen such things? Is a country born in one day? Is a nation brought forth all at once? For as soon as Tziyon went into labor, she brought forth her children. – Stern’s Complete Jewish Bible


Isaiah 66:7-8

Israel would reborn in just one day….
Bible passage: Isaiah 66:7-8
Prophet: Isaiah
Written: perhaps between 701-681 BC
Fulfilled: 1948

In Isaiah 66:7-8, the prophet foreshadowed the re-birth of Israel, which happened in 1948. Isaiah describes a woman giving birth before going into labor, and he speaks of a country being born in one day. This accurately describes what happened on May 14, 1948 – when the Jews declared independence for Israel as a united and sovereign nation for the first time in 2900 years.

During that same day, the United States issued a statement recognizing Israel’s sovereignty. And, only hours beforehand, a United Nations mandate expired, ending British control of the land. During a 24-hour span of time, foreign control of the land of Israel had formally ceased, and Israel had declared its independence, and its independence was acknowledged by other nations. Modern Israel was literally was born in a single day.

Isaiah said the birth would take place before there would be labor pains. And that too is precisely what happened. A movement called Zionism began in the 1800s to encourage Jews worldwide to move to Israel, which at that time was called Palestine. Within hours of the declaration of independence in 1948, Israel was attacked by the surrounding countries of Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and Saudi Arabia.

When reading Isaiah 66:7-8, keep in mind that Israel’s status as a sovereign nation was established and reaffirmed during the course of a single day, and that it was born of a movement called Zionism, and that its declaration of independence was not the result of a war but rather the cause of one.

 

Note – Christian Identity nut-cases never quote the above verse. America, which they claim is the new “Jerusalem” was not born in one day like the nation of Israel was.
