For Jewish people only

As a Christian I seek to share the Good News of Jesus with anyone, including Jewish people.  I realize that many things have been done to Jews that go against the teachings of Jesus, so it can be a sensitive subject.  And I know that Satan has done a great job of making Jews think the New Testament is an antisemitic manifesto (it is anything but).

However, from an apologetic standpoint I would love to have them read the New Testament and ask themselves if the types of Jews they see represented there are similar to the Jews shown in the Hebrew Bible (aka the Old Testament).

Here’s what I mean: Yes, there were some good Jews in the OT (and the NT).  But if you actually read the entire OT you can’t miss the non-stop cycles of rebellion from beginning to end — even though God had chosen them, set them apart and given them special revelation.  Scan the book of Judges.  Scan the history of the kings.  Scan the prophets.  It couldn’t be more clear.

So historically speaking, if the Jewish leaders had such a spectacularly awful track record, would it be surprising that the Jewish leaders of Jesus’ time would reject their Messiah and persecute his followers?

Please note that I’m not committing the error of thinking that I would have done any better.  It is human nature to look at the bad guys of history and think we would have done the right thing.  Sure.  Sans the Holy Spirit, I’m sure I would have been yelling, “Crucify him!” and “Release to us Barrabas!”  I would have denied Jesus more than 3 times.  And so on.

But I do challenge Jewish folks — and anyone else, for that matter — to read the entire Bible carefully. It isn’t anti-Jewish.  It is pro-Good News for lost sinners of any kind.  Please don’t reject your Messiah.  Eternity is a mighty long time.

Hey, I agree with Ron Schiller of NPR — UPDATED

Well at least one a couple things noted in NPR’s Ron Schiller admits NPR funding not needed. | RedState.  Looks like Ron got caught on camera saying what everyone suspected NPR was about.  Then he offered this up:

Well, frankly it is very clear that we would be better off in the long run without Federal funding.

[later, when asked whether NPR could survive without funding.]

NPR would definitely survive and most of the stations would survive.

I agree with those things, but I’ll bet his bosses are mad that he said them.  They’ve been playing the “oh, the humanity” card about potential de-funding.

Of course, I don’t agree with his elitist “only Liberals know what to do” and “TEA Partiers are racist” nonsense, his anti-Jewish sentiments, etc.

We should immediately remove their funding and their tax-exempt status.  Either that or make donations to Rush / Beck / the Republican party tax-deductible.

P.S. It is so easy to record people with audio or video.  Just be yourself all the time and you don’t have to fear things like this.  If people heard what I said about religion, Islam, abortion, the pro-gay lobby, etc. in private they’d be shocked — shocked!, I say — to find out that I say the same things in the same way as I do in public.  No wonder people like Schiller think we’re closet racists: They are such flaming hypocrites that they assume everyone else is.

UPDATE 1: More bad news for the Center for Public Broadcasting: CPB Skirting Law by Campaigning for Own Funding.  Ethics: You’re doin’ it wrong.

UPDATE 2: Juan Williams Responds to NPR Sting: ‘They Prostitute Themselves for Money’

“This was an act of incredible condescension,” said Williams. “The rank hypocrisy of his remarks was telling for me. They will say things to your face about how there’s no liberal orthodoxy at NPR, how they play it straight, but now you see it for what it is. They prostitute themselves for money.”

Williams said Schiller’s remarks about the Jews dominating the newspaper industry was “outright anti-Semitism,” and labeling Tea Party members “gun-toting” “racists” reveals “their real feelings.” This is how they talk in boardrooms and editorial meetings, explained Williams. “This is how they really feel.”

UPDATE 3: Hmmm . . . even though NPR insisted there wasn’t bias, they cut Ron loose early and then forced out Vivian.  Time to defund!

First, Vivian Schiller got her walking papers from NPR’s board.  Now Ron Schiller, who resigned effective immediately from his position at NPR yesterday in the wake of the undercover sting video, won’t get his position at the Aspen Institute after all.

UPDATE 4: Man oh man this just keeps getting better: More videos on the way!

Shocking: Soros-funded Sojourners defends Soros

See Glenn Beck’s Offensive Attacks on George Soros – Valerie Elverton Dixon – God’s Politics Blog.

Then see Why did Liberal evangelical Jim Wallis lie about taking money from pro-abort atheist George Soros?

Then it will all make sense.  Hey, give me a few hundred thousand dollars and I might defend you.

Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis is a false teacher.

If George Soros likes and funds your evangelical Christian organization, it probably isn’t a real evangelical Christian organization.
