M Tovey -We have wandered, you and I through the wilderness of opinion and scripture and away from the main topic of this article. We are both entitled to our opinions on the matter and I am sure we will espouse them again in other venues. My only issue with you is how you describe yourself as "Goy".I prefer Gentile if you want to describe yourself as a non-Jew in a fancy manner. The word "Goy" is used very much by Anti-Semites on their websites and in trolling,who believe it to be a derogatory word and like to use it to show how much the Jews hate the non-Jews. Sometimes it is used by Gentiles as a way to show they understand Jewish lingo and are cool about it.Certainly a Bible reader such as yourself will avoid this word in the future.Yes Goy does mean literally a person fron a nation but that's Hebrew and we are writing in English.I respectfully will let you have the last word.
