> Simus,
> Matthew 18:14 is a nice comfortable verse. When Jesus speaks of his "sheep" though, it's been pointed out quite clearly that He is speaking of His people. In Matthew 25 He describes the judgement, when the sheep are on his right, and the goats are on his left. As I understand it, the sheep are Christians. No non-Christian will enter heaven. I believe one verse says "No-one comes to the father but through the son". Could be wrong, but if I am, please show me where. Do you think that non-christians will enter heaven? If so, they why do so many churches proslytize and send out missionaries with such zeal? And once a society is converted, what happens to it's religion? Mostly, it seems to be relegated to mythology.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This misunderstanding of the words of Jesus (as well as the timing, the relevance, and the intended audience/timeframe), have been the source of much pain for many people who are outside the religion of Christianity, to include, to a huge extend, the Jews.

I cannot fathom why this was left, unsanctioned, to continue to cause harm to others.

Yes, I understand the context of the post, that Dee is here describing how that very misunderstanding has caused her to be harmed by the same institution (Christianity).

But, how can some be sanctioned for speaking of what constitutes anti-Semitism, while this post has been allowed even as it speaks of what constitutes erroneous Christian understanding?

Shalom, Dena
