I’d be fine with giving Texas back to its original country.

It’s amazing that people will vote against peace.

Maybe Obama should declare a National “Breathe Deeply Day”.  The country would be littered will blue-faced rightwingnuts.

Obama is a TRAITOR, impeach his behind!  Liberal Left are IGNORANT and simply liars. Give texas back are you kidding me! . What kind of statement is that, sounds to me like you need to live in another country because your probably the only one in this country would make a ludracris statement like that.

It seems as everytime someone tries to give part of Israel away, a disaster follows.
God gave Israel to the Jewish people like it or not.
Israel is unlike any other piece of real estate in the world.
It is THE only piece that God gave to a group of people.
This is not something to be messed with.
You mess with that, and you will suffer.
If Obama does end up giving it away, expect more disasters in the US.

“Americans still believe in an America where anything’s possible - they just don’t think their leaders do.”

For once, Obama and I agree on something.

If God gave Israel to the Jewish people then why did the UN need to vote on it?  And why was the Son of God crucified for refusing to toe the line?  Wouldn’t God have sent His only Son to give Israel to the Jewish people if that were His intention?  Wouldn’t the Jews have asked that Christ be freed instead of Barabbas if it were God’s intention that Christ create the Jewish state?  If Christ the Redeemer was crucified because he failed to deliver the salvation the Jews hoped for, isn’t the existence of the State of Israel a consistent and recurring slap in the face of the Christian God?  To those who faith has been so perverted as to support subversion of the Will of God, I can assure you the light at the end of the tunnel is an oncoming train.  For those of you who feel great sorrow that the life of your country is ever more consumed and synchronized with the din of unrest from that ####### state, I can offer you no hope.  There will be no significant change.  We will be consumed by the Fire of God for our folly before we are released from this millstone. 

But you Ziofreaks can calm down.  You have nothing to worry about.  Except the fires of Hell, of course.  From which there will be no release.

Bocephus - I do like hearing about Texas history also, especially prior to that part of Mexico being seized by racists since slaves not only had equal rights there but could have land. Bocephus - can u believe the guessing games & I think the people on this site consider themselved high school grads.

There are only two Hells that exist in reality.  One is lovely little town in Michigan.  The other is in the Caymans.

Given my druthers, I’ll take the closest circle to Hell that has full services and utilities in the Caymans.

A couple of clarifications:  Jesus was born a Jew and The Jews were SUPPOSED to kill him so all the idiots on this page could saved! To argue with some of these posters is pointless. They will flop around like fish out of water gasping for air until its time to face judgement! Finally, it was the Spanish who occupied the South West States not Mexico so if that Narco-State has any complaints let them talk to Spain! P.S…. The squatters currently occupying the West Bank and Gaza are from Jordan and Saudia Arabia and need to go home!

So the Jews who followed Jesus and believed in His message were actually working against the will of God because they didn’t advocate for His death? 

George Washington was born a Brit.  Does that make the sovereignty of the United States less valid?

Should we actually worship the Jews because they fulfilled the Will of God and saved us? 

Should we send all of our money to Great Britain because it was a Brit who founded our country? 

Just curious.  This is fascinating.

‘’ For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whomever believes in him should not perish but halve everlasting life” John 3. 16.  ‘‘The bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the World”. John 6; 51. It was Gods and Christ’s love for humanity that ultimately killed Jesus! Quit blaming the Jews, Satan and the religious leaders… they were all predestined to be used in the Masters plan for YOUR salvation!

Obama simply stated the 3 decade old official U.S. negotiating foreign policy on the Israeli Palestinian conflict. Every President from Carter to Obama has held the same principle. It is our foreign policy position on the issue.

And no I don’t think Israel will move a million people off the disputed land. Even though the majority of Israelis support the very principle Obama stated. They have an extreme fringe political party that just like us won’t accept the facts and blocks all roads to peace.

The Third Hell is the sickness of Liberalism! Israel will never allow another State to dictate their future. The Pagans that surround them have been killing each other for Three Thousand years. They’ve been brainwashed into thinking the Jew is the enemy to keep them distracted from their real enemy which is their own brutal oppressive rulers that desperately need to keep them distracted!

So everything is going according to plan and you have nothing to worry about….Or is Obama somehow going to thwart the will of God?

” This whole issue has nothing to do with Christian or Jewish beliefs. “


Then why is the US relationship with Israel unique in the Middle East ?  They don’t have any oil to speak of…and they aren’t the only democracy.

Shouldn’t they be just another Middle Eastern country that you know nothing about?

Amerikan Christianity:

1.  The Jews who chose Barabbas did the right thing in God’s eyes.
2.  The Apostles who spread the word of Christ were doing wrong, because it delayed the creation of Israel for nearly 2000 years.
3.  In God’s eyes it’s more important to Crucify those who tell the truth than to tell the truth, especially if telling the truth interferes with Israel.
4.  The only way to make sure that you are unequivocally pleasing in God’s eyes is to crucify anyone or anything displeasing to the Jews because Christ was a Jew. 
5.  The only difference between a Christian and a Jew is that a Christian is a sinner. 

CULTURAL SUICIDE.

Someone needs to take you out to the ‘spiritual woodshed’ Son and try and teach you about the unearned ‘Gift’ of God’s salvation!

Israel has been an invaluable strategic partner to the US since it’s inception. As the only Democracy in the entire Middle East it’s been a critical ally of the US in neutralizing the interests of a very unstable group of Arab Tribal States and containing the interests of Russia and China.

Yes Israel has been a strategic partner with the U.S. But you are confusing geopolitical corporate and military interests with religion.

So Gatekeeper, do you even have to say “Jesus” on your deathbed or do you get in for just being born? 

“Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat.  How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life, and few there are that find it!”

‘’ That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation”.  Romans 10: 9-10.  Thats it! You can’t earn it, you can’t work for it…it’s free!

“Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven: but he that doth the will of my Father who is in heaven, he shall enter into the kingdom of heaven.”

Matthew 7:21

And I suppose you also believe that if you are of the Jewish religion you get into heaven regardless of whether you confess Jesus?

You’ve cited two scriptures that refer to those who tried to ‘earn’ (works) their way into heaven. God doesn’t take American Express or Visa. Jesus did the ‘work’ for you. And yes, Jews who accept Jesus get an express pass to the kingdom.

We can agree to disagree on your Protestant gobbledygook. What I am surprised to hear you admit, given that you have adopted wholesale nearly every modern heresy, is that you do not believe in dual covenant theology, and that a Jew must in fact accept Christ (and therefore become a Christian), to enter heaven.  So if there is only one covenant, that of Christ, why do you think God wants Christendom to shuffle the Jews off to their own country where they can live without the Grace of Christ and then burn for eternity in hell?  I mean aren’t you really disrespecting the Jews by making it easier for them to carry the burden of their mistaken beliefs?  Doesn’t God want them to love Christ?

Giving islamists land is insanity. Would it be wise for South Korea to give more land to North Korea? Islam is a religion of submission - ultimately submission or death. In order for a nation or what have you be able to have the moral right to land one must first have establish a government that values liberty. Islam is adamantly opposed to liberty. There is no right to oppress - any collective or thug that does forfeits their right to rule.

Worry about your own selves and your freedoms.  The myth of Jesus and Allah and Bhudda and Jupiter and Satan and Kali and Gaia, etc., is just that. A MYTH!  We do need Israel as a strategic partner as well as the mid-east for it’s oil reserves.  But not for any other reason.  Let them fight it out until they are all dead.
