Reader comment on item: The Muslim Claim to Jerusalem
in response to reader comment: Jews did not keep their covenant with God, by rejecting the in Issa(Jesus) son of Maryam, thereby losing their claim to the blessed land of Palestine.

Yes, let's take a look at the Bible, that book composed of the Jewish manuscripts both propagated and protected over thousands of years by Jews, and amplified in meaning and scope in the New Testament writings, and to some degree by Jews. Revealed in those writings are the covenants, and there were several, between God and Jews. Yes, the Jews failed to uphold their end of the bargain but what many fail to recognize is that God will fulfill his proclamation because it in God's nature to uphold the integrity of his word. Learn this: Man fails but God remains true. God's blessings upon the Jews has not been abrogated by their failure of compliance.

From the Christian viewpoint there is no margin of error in gaining God's approval. God always preserve his Holiness. God does not set aside his standards to accept man's limited level of integrity. Man fails but God does not fail. This is revealed in the offering "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ" and by that simple act of faith God will fulfill his promise "And you will be saved" God has accounted for the weakness in men by remaining true to his own word through the imputation of the iniquities of mankind upon the God Son, Jesus Christ. and by the simultaneous imputation of his own Righteousness to the believer in time. All men fail but God remains steadfast. The promises made to the Jewish people remain intact and will be fulfilled in time. God will uphold his promises made in the covenants. Also, I'll express a concern: those that practice extreme Islam commit justified destruction, enslavement, and heinous acts of violence under the banner of representing God's will. Any system of belief practicing such things to further its own aims, I submit, is false. I believe that the Koran of the Prophet Mohammed is not the printed Koran we know today.
