Jewish media-Scribe Dennis Prager asked the question and, he then proceeded to answer the question...
"Are the Jews the chosen people?"
A lifetime of study of this issue, including writing (with Rabbi Joseph Telushkin) a book on anti-Semitism ("Why the Jews? The Reason for Anti-Semitism") has convinced me that, along with all the rational explanations, there is one explanation that transcends reason alone.
It is that the Jews are God's chosen people.
It sounds chauvinistic. It sounds racist. And it sounds irrational, if not bizarre.
But it is none of these.
-by Jewish media-Scribe
Yelp, Dennis Prager is giving us Christians what he considers to be a non-chauvinistic, non-racist, absolutely rational, but certainly NOT bizarre analysis as to why only Jews have God's heart.
He goes on -- "Without the Jews, there would be no Christianity (a fact acknowledged by the great majority of Christians)"
In fact, his analysis is exactly backward, for without the Son of God, i.e. God, there would be NO JEWS... a fact to which NO JEW would agree with.
Prager adds, "Nazi Germany was more concerned with exterminating the Jews than with winning World War II"
But he neglects to talk about Nazism being the survivalist reaction to the even more barbaric evil actions of Judeo-Communism spreading across Europe and in particular, a reaction to events such as the extermination of 7 million Ukrainian Christians by the Jewish commissars in the Holodomor, just prior to Hitler coming to power.
Taking the cake, Prager outright LIES when he says, "Throughout its 70-year history, the Soviet Union persecuted its Jews and tried to extinguish Judaism. Hatred of Jews was one thing communists and Nazis shared."
Prager's lie is countered by his own statement of exactly one month ago where we talked about --> here
<--, the fact that Dennis Prager admits Jews were not really harmed under Communism, while Christians certainly were.
Statement from just one month ago
by Dennis Prager
"In 1969, at the age of 21, I was sent to the Soviet Union"..."Though my work was with Soviet Jewry, I had no trouble acknowledging that Soviet Christians often had it worse. Few Soviet Jews were killed or locked away in dungeon-like conditions by the Soviet authorities, but Soviet Christians were."
reality of modern life -- fashionably referred to by the more politically-correct sounding name of "Judeo-Christian", created by leaving off the foul-sounding words "Master" and "Slave" -- first came into being with the Protestant Reformation.
After the critical worship of Jesus and God, it is interesting to see the remaining essence of the Protestant faiths as being -- at once -- Protestant worship of Judaism, and -- as second -- condemners of the Catholic worship of Mary -- for these two fundamental Protestant principles work hand-in-hand.
Naturally, Protestants never use the term Judeo-Christian to describe Jews, and they never complain of Jews if Jews were to:
- Worship Abraham when they invoke the term "Bosom of Abraham" to infer that "after our death in this fashion Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob will receive us and all our forefathers will praise us" (4 Maccabees 13:17)
- Worship Moses in so many, many ways from the Deliverance, to the Ten Commandments, to the Passover.
- Worship the common woman Esther in many, many stories, such as the Jewish produced Hollywood movie "One Night with the King"
- Worship David, by dedicating the national symbol of Israel as the Star of David.
- Worship Solomon with a temple dedicated to him.
But, in stark contrast, Protestants have stopped calling themselves Christians, preferring instead the politically-correct term "Judeo-Christian", while they condemn Catholics for having veneration of Mary, which they call a form of pagan Mary worship.
The Key is
of the House of David
whom the Lord is with
The angel Gabriel was sent from God to a town of Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin's name was Mary. And coming to her, he said, "Hail favored one! The Lord is with you."
-- Luke 1:26-28
We see in Luke that Mary is
A) a Jewish virgin,
B) a special Jewish virgin in that she came from the house of David and
C) an extremely special virgin in that God showed favor upon her, over all other Jewish women in history to deliver His Son.
This made Mary as God's Chosen Virgin.
In fact, it also makes Mary the world's first Christian -- a true believer in our Lord Jesus Christ.
Shall we dare to say that this makes the followers of this Virgin's descendant -- Jesus -- as the continuing Chosen People of God.
And in converse, would this would mean that anyone who does not follow the house of David -- THROUGH MARY -- is not God's chosen people, i.e. the Jesus-denying Jews?
For the Jews to have Christian slaves, the illusion of Jews still being God's Chosen People is absolutely essential, for what Christian would want to harm a Chosen People of God or not want to help a Chosen People of God?
God's Promise to Abraham
I will bless those who bless you
and curse those who curse you
Genesis is often misquoted by Jews and Christians alike. God is specifically talking here only to Abraham, not to just any Jewish money-changer or Jesus-killing Pharisee who shows up at your door, but dare question the ethnic cleansing Israel performs in the West Bank every day, or any other policy of Israel, and this quote will be dragged out to condemn the ones doing the questioning, as if they were condemning Abraham himself.
"Be a good Christian --> support Israel --> but don't you dare say a Christian prayer in public."
Dennis Prager was wondering in that last article a month ago why Christians supported Jews in Israel so much, as if they were not Chosen, instead of their own Christian religion, then this month Dennis Prager comes out in support of Jews being God's Chosen People, so of course, it would be natural for Christians to be supporting Jews. I just don't understand why he can't make up his mind?
What I really want to know is why Christians cannot have their own set of religious beliefs?
"The Lord will bless...
those who bless Mary,
and the Lord will curse...
those who curse Mary."
-- The Christian Solution
All in all, starting in the 16th Century, gullible Catholic Christians were converted to "Jewish worshipers" by becoming Protestants.
Central to Dennis Pragar's desire for "Jewish worship" is to insure that much of what Mary stands for -- "The House of David" -- "The Lord is with you" -- is discredited; hence, Protestants are taught hatred toward Catholics revering the Mother of Jesus Christ, who was with Jesus from before he was conceived, was with Jesus after he rose from the dead -- and joined Jesus in heaven in her own death.
To a Protestant,
This is a Sinful Prayer
full of grace,
the Lord is with thee;
blessed art thou amongst women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.
Are the Jews the chosen people?
