“ABRAHAM OUR FATHER, JERUSALEM OUR MOTHER” (5)

Want to take a moment to thank those who have sent me private feed-back concerning this essay. May God bless you. Part (5) tackles what I believe is a vital issue: that of chosen-ness. Claim No.2: “The Nation Israel is still God’s Chosen People Today” We hear a great deal of complaining today from Christian […]
