Reformed vs. Romans 11… and the rest of the Bible

01 May

I know some really great people in the reformed camp. I am about to tick all of them off but I have to. Their eschatology and position on Israel make no sense. At no time did the Church become Israel and the book of Revelation is not totally allegorical.

Proof? The Bible is proof! Read it without using the reformed transmogrifying filter that they use to force things into their view. Romans 11 is a prime example. Paul did not practice a reformed interpretational framework. I mean no disrespect but it is true! Paul was writing literally just like he wrote everything else. Romans does not end after chapter 10. Read on. Chapter 11 refutes the reformed perspective on Israel.

The book of Revelation is another. Then there’s the Old Testament and the rest of the New…

Read the Bible the way it was written. It is a unified writing from God to communicate His redemptive plan. Israel is still part of God’s plan.

True ‘dat?

    Amen and AMEN.!!… When I read this Reformed/Replacement Theology, I get a ‘wee’ bit ticked. IF G-D could so easily throw Israel under the bus for their sins – then what makes any of us think He could not do the same with us. FOR ALL HAVE SINNED AND COME SHORT OF THE GLORY OF G-D – and all means ALL.

    Thank you for your Back to the Future humour – it certainly needs preached.

    Romans 11:28-29 – In the past, the majority of Jews were smug/complacent in their beliefs – but now the gentile church is doing the very same thing. We have become arrogant and ignorant of God’s Word and His longing to restore the offspring of Abraham. Jeremiah 31:31 The new covenant was made with the house of Israel and the house of Judah. There were no gentiles in the upper room. To the Jew first and then to the gentile, that’s the pattern. Just as Joseph was initially rejected by his brothers and sent to the gentiles and became their hope, and just as he later revealed himself ‘unto his brothers’ and was reconciled, so also will Jesus do the same for his brothers, the natural branches. The gentiles are of the spiritual commonwealth of Israel, not the other way round.

    Keep speaking His truth
