in response to reader comment: Problem with Hagee's "support" of Israel

Michael,

When I was 13, someone told me a prostitute on John St. would go to heaven and Albert Schwitzer would go to hell if she believed in Jesus Christ since she did not. I never thought that was true - I thought the guy that said it was nuts or God was if he were right. Later I came to believe in Christianity,, but It has been just anathema to me to believe Jews are going to hell if they don't accept Jesus as their Savior. As a fundamental - charismatic Christian, I have kept my opinions to myself - why get into a free for all?

Recently I have discovered the answer!! We Christians have access to God through Jesus and our Covenant relationship. This is an If / Then legal contract - If we say that Jesus is our Lord and that God has raised us from the dead then we are saved.

The Jews Covenant with God was unilateral. It was not an If / Then contract. God told Abraham he was going to make him a great nation, and be a Father to the Jewish people. The covenant was unconditional. So though we gentiles must come to God through Jesus Christ - the Jews were already there under to Covenant of Abraham.

Hope this helps us all. It sure has given me peace of mind.

Blessings

Susan Browne

PS

The Jews didn't kill Jesus - we all did - and we would probably do it again. Christians included. No one can abide a human being that makes us all look so pathetic.
