Are Jews The Chosen People?

Title: 937 - Heritage Of Israel

Author: Walter J. Veith

Description: Tradition holds that those who are born of the sons of Abraham can receive salvation by this merit alone. There are many people who claim to be from the tribes of Israel. This DVD examines this belief in light of Scripture. What was the purpose of Israel? Does salvation come through the Jewish nation? Is salvation even possible through birthright? The meaning of the Jewish feasts is also examined, along with the question of the name of Jesus.

wow

You should try a glass of warm milk.
The video I referenced was the OP's, not yours.

The straw bridge is your inference that words or opinions are the same as being a NAZI.

You might want to laminate that card if you are going to be using it daily.

I SHOULD do what I want

A glass of warm milk.. IOWs, I should go back to sleep according to you, so we can be on the same page, as it's so much nicer to be asleep as you are.

You take offense at a word, not the actions you emulate behind the word.

It's as if you think eliminating that word gives you freedom to emulate the actions?

Please

engage thinking process prior to typing.
The warm milk might relax you enough to make that possible.

It was you that took offense to words, as if opinions and actions were comparable.

Learn to relax, and then find out what is wrong with your Caps Lock button.

Please stop telling me what to do with insults

I find you a authoritarian and I'm not seeking your direction.

How did I acquire the power

to tell you what to do?

By typing unsolicted instructions

is how you acquire the power.

I reject your power, being I have self determination over your power, your power is failing you.

Typing 'instructions' (suggestions)

gave me this power?
I must be 10 feet tall and made of steel.

Grow Up (another 'instruction')

Some consider

written instruction, in a typed form, even electronically, is power. See MN rules on DP for an example.

I am grown up (making your instruction, as all of them, worthless).

Your replies

are ever more desperate.

You may be grown up, but you sure as hell have not matured.

You are whale manure,

nothing's lower!

Goes to show

what level you're on, need more vids? You want TRUTH?

Yes, more video

I just finished that one, and really liked it!

I love the truth. You?

Try again

If you have to argue a LEGAL case for Israel, you've already lost. I like those presentations that argue the MORAL case to stop killing palestinians. Moral trumps legal anyday!

Second video is just dumb!

OK

How do you figure that explaining what is THE legal case, which is why Israel exists (thus I've won), means I've lost? You're the one losing, and you don't wnat to know why you are losing, rather, just leave it up to how you FEEL about it?

How about the MORAL case to stop murdering Jews who have a RIGHT TO SELF DEFENSE, legally?

I thought the second was funny, because truth is funny when it's on your side. Truth hurts when it is not.

Chosen to be hated and

Chosen to be hated and reviled on the DailyPaul?

Absolutely.

So wrong Not hated at all.

So wrong. Not hated at all. Just not worshipped as you and Granger worship them. They are no better or worse than any other tribal group. So take your disgusting fealty to the apartheid state of Israel and shove it up your anti Arab ___!

You are particularly hypocritical

and ignorant.

You HATE Jews, it is so obvious.

Your many many posts reviling the Jewish people, history, culture, and religion prove that.

*Humor*

In the distant fictional future, Christians and Jews decide to come together and they have a contest to see whose religion is true.

They all beforehand agree to all convert if the other religion is obviously chosen. They will all then be one.

The debate must be silent and only consist of a series of battling hand signals. The debate ends when one side voluntarily gives up.

The Christians choose their best minister and the Jews choose their best Rabbi. They flip a coin to see who goes first. The minister wins.

The minister starts out by gesturing with his hands.. placing both his palms upward and moving his hands outward from his body.

The rabbi takes his left hand with its palm turned up and then make a fist with his right hand and pounds his right fist into his open left hand.

The minister responds by removing bread from an ornate metal tin and holding it up in the air reverently.

The rabbi responds by removing an apple from his pocket.

At the sight of the Apple, the minister puts his head down and ends the contest by speaking... "You Jews win the contest. We'll all convert to Judaism. I have to go explain things to my flock".

At this, the minister goes down to his people and explains what happened:

He says that he used his hands to first inform the Rabbi that God is all around us. He says that the Rabbi responded by pounding his hand in his fist indicating that God is here with us now. Next, in desperation, he removed and held aloft the Body of Christ. The Rabbi responded by pulling out the apple from the garden of Eden. It was too much for the minister to take and he knew it was time to surrender the debate.

Meanwhile, the rabbi explains things to his flock. He says that the minister started out making a hand gesture indicating that all the Jews should leave. The rabbi became indignant and pounded his hand in his fist indicating the Jews are staying right here. Then, they had lunch and the minister ended the debate for no reason.

I was there

and I never did get my coin back.

Jews!? There is a special

Jews!? There is a special place in hell for you just for asking that question "Tuskeegee:" aka agent of Lucifer!

There is only ONE choosen person, and that is the world's only Jewmormistian Witness. Me. The rest of you sad lot are all going to be screaming as your skin peels off in the fires of hell the moment the Flying Spagetti Monster gets ahold of you for leading wicked lives of purposeful denial of the one TRUE religeon. Mine.

Don't blame me. YOU choose to willfully be ignorant of the truth. The Flying Spagetti Monster told you all about the one true faith, but YOU wouldn't listen because in your heart, you want to be tortured until the end of time for your evil.

Its not too late however, just send me $20.oo and convert to the Jewmormistian Witness church and you can be saved.

Amen la la la la!

So morality is relative?

You are an atheist, obviously.

Is there no right or wrong inherently designed into the natural laws of the universe? Or is there a universal morality designed into this World?

Lots of conflations.

What does Atheism have to do with relative morality? What does the supernatural have to do with morality? Judeo-Christians, because of the fact that their religion contains a moral code, conflate the concept of god and morality. There is nothing relating these things besides the story of Moses claiming God gave him some clunky tablets with some ill organized and duplicated rules on them.

Right and wrong can be understood by the story of Genesis, which is an allegory about human evolution. When Eve ate the 'fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil' it was in essence the time in human history that our brains evolved from the more animalistic intuitive-type to the more humanistic logical-type. At some point humans began to be able to empathize. Empathy the key to understanding morality. Animals do not empathize, and they do not know good from evil. We do not expect them to because they cannot empathize. So when humans could logically understand that hurting or killing something caused pain in that creature, that they themselves were also capable of enduring too, we knew right from wrong. We had eaten the fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. This has nothing to do with ones belief or non-believe in a supernatural energy or force or god.

Now to follow up on Genesis, after Eve and Adam ate that fruit they immediately were kicked out of Eden. Which in the human mind this is indeed true. This is the original sin (read: missing the mark). Our brains are in flux. They are too big to be like the peaceful ignorant animals, but not big enough to be able to understand that our true selves are not the ruminating, repetitive, incessant stream of thoughts running through our minds. We are stuck in our tiny minds. Soon we will be forced to move on though, as everything does: change never ends. Soon we will be able to use our minds without identifying with them. We will remember our true essence.

In Genesis, agriculture came as soon as Adam and Eve at the fruit. They were smart enough to propagate plants. They were no longer animals. But they would be suffering until they were able to understand how to use their new big brains.

Atheists are not always relativists. The supernatural and morality have nothing to do with one another.

right and wrong are concepts

right and wrong are concepts born of human reason. The best theory so far is natural rights. Its wrong to violate someone's life, liberty or property. Doing this makes a crime.

Atheists and diety worshipers both derive their right and wrong from a human sorce, its just athiests understand this, and religeous types make-believe that their opinion is made into an absolute truth by a super king. That's why religeous people are able to rationalize doing horrible things to people without accepting the fact that they are committing a crime. GOD WILLS IT!

Yes, it is

Just look at the number of people who think something is immoral simply because it is illegal, and vise-versa. Or the way a culture considers certain things taboo when another culture may not. This all boils down to yet another nature versus nurture debate.

The concept of right and wrong is a distinctly human one; certainly not a natural law of the universe, it's an awfully arrogant thing to say when you think about it. Human beings are but a single organism on a single planet, what we conjure up in our own minds doesn't apply to the entire universe.

A signature used to be here!

Making me...

...hungry. :)

Uh...

Do you think I hate someone because of the INFORMATION I posted? I love Jon Stewart and think Sarah Silverman is hot! It's just information...why the acidic response my man?

P.S. The Bible tells us you do not go to hell if you don't get into Heaven. It that was the case...you would have eternal life either way, Heaven or hell. The Bible actually tells us either you live eternally with the Father, or u have eternal sleep...sorry for not posting the Chapter/Verse.

Cause they have been

Cause they have been brainwashed to think that Jews are the eternal blameless victims and have never ever done any wrong!

The Jews aren't the only religion that believes they're chosen

The Calvinists have taken it to an extreme. I'm not sure if many here know of the Christian Reformed Church. There is an enclave of them in Western Michigan, are predominantly of Dutch decent and have their own special interpretation of the Christian bible. They are taught from an early age that they are chosen by God to go to heaven. The concept of predestination, that God chose certain people before their birth as saved and everyone else is destined to hell.
