Editor, Times-Union:
Genesis 12:3 – And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curse thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
I think if you did some research you would find that the man or nations that have stood with Israel in the past have been blessed and those that have not have had many troubles. I see some letters here against Israel and certainly the Hollywood bunch has spoken out against them. (Why do we care what Hollyweird says anyhow?)
I would venture to say it’s only a matter of time before our present administration and the U.N. will condemn Israel and come up with some kind of sanctions against them. I really think the Palestinians had the thought that if they buddied up to Hamas eventually they would take over Israel.
I read a letter on Friday that said Israel is a pip-squeak little state. Hum, little but mighty because they are God's chosen people. Let’s look at a few stories from the six-day war. How does one explain how a enemy shell scored a direct hit on a truck loaded with a fresh supply of ammo for the front lines and never exploded? How did two IDF fighters capture 18 of the enemy without a shot being fired because the 18 said after their capture that they could not fire their guns because their hands would not work?
Yep, the end of the world is coming but if some would read the Bible they would find that yes, Jesus is coming back for his church and all people will be judged. You and I and everyone else will either enter into eternal life to live in paradise forever or end up in eternal damnation in a place called hell. That choice is yours.
Christians, muslims or anybody else hasn’t a thing to do with that. There is no religious group of any kind bringing the world to a end. God has had the plan since the beginning.
In closing I would just like to say hating everybody and everything all the time must be a miserable way to live. I leave you with this, John 3:16 – For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
