I am at a loss. How to reply to this post without getting thrown off the forums? Best to say nothing except:
(1) Please read your history a little more carefully because you're establishing a causal nexus where there is none and laying blame at the wrong feet;
(2) THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO PLACE FOR HATRED OF THE JEWS IN OUR FAITH - please do NOT blame them for the state of things or deny that more than 6 million of them were systematically murdered. These are the most tired and mindless old canards. They are beneath contempt. What's next? Blood libel? These sorts of statements/beliefs are also hateful and dangerous. We cannot call oursleves Catholic or Christian if we hate the Jews or blame them for things. By mouthing such insane and vicious sentiments we create scandal and besmirch the Church. Is this what you want to do in the name of your faith? In the name of the God of love do you wish to justify hatred of God's own chosen people, of our elder brothers in the the faith? Jesus lived and died a devout Jew. Our Catholic faith is but a form of Judaism - the perfect form. Ask any scholar. There are two main branches of the Jewish religion today: (i) rabbinical Judaism and (ii) Christianity (Catholic and Orthodox). Above all, we must NEVER blame the Jews for the death of Christ. By our own sinfulness, you, I, and everyone who ever lived killed Christ. He died to take upon himself the burden of or sins. He wa snot murdered by the Jews - he offered himself as the one eternal and perfect sacrifice.
Seriously. I'm astounded you can say what you said in good faith. You are a bright man who is serious about the faith. God is love. Let's never forget that.
The Jews are not God's chosen people...Read Saint John Chapter 8 starting with verse 31 to 47 and note verse 44, then tell me that the Jews are God's chosen people. The children of God follow God and to follow God one must follow Jesus.
"I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father but through me."
^The above quote is from Saint John Chapter 14 verse 6.
Try following the word of our Lord first and then maybe you'll stop with your hate nonsense. The Jews must turn back to Jesus. The Jews are not God's chosen people, that is a lie concoted after WW2.
Either you are a Roman Catholic or you are not. It is very simple..Jesus is the way, the truth, the life. OK? We pray for the Jewish conversion, we do not worship them as children of God. This has been the position of the church since its beginning.
