Why the Real Savior Stands Out from the Rest of the West:
For a really long, long time, this observer moved through a very brief period of time (brief in the sense that sixty-plus years is, as it is written, a vapor) in which to learn how to find the true meaning of life; that in contrast, why did/does it take the allotted time of this mortal lifetime to learn what eventually became such a singularly simple concept? If there is a God, Who is He?
When it all comes down to finally realizing Who is to be recognized as the Savior, the Son of the living Eternal Sovereign, one only need to refer to the sole remaining evidence that has lasted for the entirety of human history, the Jewish carpenter from Galilee that was taken by religious authorities and for reasons of religious pride, had Him put to death because they were afraid of the truth, that He was Who He said He was; and this was proved in front of hundreds of witnesses, the successors of such witnesses still telling people today about the Savior of the Gospel.
Yet in the meantime, during the two thousand years since, others who decided not to believe in the truth have developed their own narrative, even in the westernization of the religious morals of those former times, the true identity of the Savior was disguised; or appropriated; or worse, attempts to atheistically eliminate the Person became the intent of an elitist mentality that humanity would be better off not knowing about the greatest figure in the entirety of human history; and calling out the Savior to be someone, or something He is not, persists.
Attempting to identify Yeshua HaMashiach as an ethnic Arab is one of the more ambitious attempts to prepare the Islamic world for the al-Mahdi, the Shi'ite replacement version of the True Savior whose heritage and lineage was already identified in so many places in the Hebrew Holy Writ as the One to be expected, and Who appeared on the mortal scene as was prophesied to be the redeemer of the Children of Israel first, then bringing all believers to Himself. The fulfillment of the attempt to actually try replacing the Savior is approaching.
That the very familiar DB still tries to make his assertion of an altered identification of the Savior (using the basis of the Savior not being 'white', which Yeshua was not, but Jewish) may have added some irony to the situation; but make no mistake, he is not alone in his erroneous belief that the future of western culture is limited and he seeks validation his view of humanity's course in history does not need the Jewish Savior in spite of the fact that the Savior's promised return is now looking way closer than almost anyone might suspect.
