in response to reader comment: My answer to Mr. Tovey-Continuing

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Sep 26, 2011 at 16:05

Answers and responses to the debate you are trying to win is going to end somewhat empty for you, since in your own admission, you will not concede the most important point. It has been made; yet you will not recognize it. I only continue here for one reason, to allow you to express your viewpoint in spite of the fact that while you make it out that I have contradictions, they are only contradictions in your own perception, and have no basis of fact to the facts at hand. Let's make this simple.

1. Death cultures: Katyushka rockets into Israel; are they for moral support of the Gazans, or to exterminate Israel?

2. American democracy: cannot be exported anywhere-requires in belief in fundamentals embraced in few places around the world, but especially not embraced where the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is not honored. The two cannot be severed without consequences.

In your own mind you have embraced the rhetoric of America being 'exceptional, where if you will remember correctly I have always maintained the only exceptional people in Biblical terms are those that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob calls exceptional in His WORD. The rest of this mention requires you to be more specific if you want to make your point plain.

3. I think making the explanation of the differences amongst Israel-Jewish, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain-not Jewish- was self explanatory enough-make of it what you will- it will not change the outcome of those trying to redefine differences in the circumstances approaching the world soon.

4. Only in a Berber mentality was America trying her hand in trade in the Mediterranean considered an invasion in 1803-an opinion you keep alive today to justify the Somali pirate mentality that exists today in homage to the pirates of old. Not until 1898 was America considered a world class power that you desperately want to dominate.

5. That's a new twist. If and when (never, most likely) Iranian President Ahmadinejad says he wants to learn anything from America is when a Constitutional America will be negated as a world power and the world is breathing down Israel's barrel ready to be extinguished.

a. The only reason Islam had any chance to make any inroads into the European domain is that Europeans did not forward the Gospel, only pontifical aspirations. That was NOT what Jesus Christ required in sending out His love.

b. To each his own convictions; if spiritually guided by the Holy Spirit then there is that reward; if not, then the reward is already promised.

c. Do you want organization? Read the Holy Bible in the Spirit by which it was intended-do not, then you will never find out why you will never contradict the Holy Word of Almighty God.

There is in this late time and date, only one thing to share that will make any difference in an individual's life-the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Recognize one's sin (your sin), in prayer ask Jesus Christ's forgiveness and receive His gift of the cross; His sacrificial death and resurrection for the remission of your sins (as I did mine) and receive the gift of eternal life.

One might win a few pluses and minuses in debating human rationale: but not even the devil could regain entry into heaven by the final WORD of the LORD……ask yourself what are your chances-and that is the point you are missing.
