In this context, faith refers both to the believers’ act of trust and to the content of their faith.As a , Christianity is more than a system of religious belief.In Genesis 12:3 the Lord says to Abram, whose decedents became Israel, “And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and you shall be a blessing; And I will bless them that bless thee and curse him that curses thee.” We find several prophecies where the nations that come against Israel are judged. It has become the largest of the world’s religions. The answer depends on what is meant by reconciliation. The messages of Jesus and Paul were be done by harmonization. No one is helped by attempts to lessen the differences by declaring that the gospel is a salvation story for both Jesus and Paul. No benefit comes from theological gibberish that the gospel is the kingdom and the kingdom is the gospel.For almost 2,000 years, Paul has been forced into the gospels and the gospels have been forced into Paul–and this continues.In Matthew -34 Jesus speaks a parable, “When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit on the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
We know from scripture that God will judge both nations and individuals.
Since 911, America has settled into a world order that is diametrically opposed to the interests of Israel and aligned itself with the traditional enemies of Israel.
This, without check, has tremendous eternal implications for America and its citizens.
The number — 46 percent — has not changed meaningfully in more than two decades. But to understand my theory, I offer an analogy, which actually involves individuals from the opposite side of the fence.
When I’m talking with atheists or agnostics who are passionately against any and all religion, I sometimes find that they have inaccurate (or just plain wrong) ideas about the teachings of the Bible, the nature of the Christian faith and the qualities of the God I believe in.
