    Do you believe that God cast them off and totally rejected them?

    After reading Romans chapter 11 and examining the history of the Jews since 1917 I think the WTBTS has distorted doctrines regarding Israel.

    I have been reading Eusebius: History of the Church, and a reoccuring theme is how the atrocities committed against the Jews by the Romans and others, or within the Jewish community, was punishment (community responsibility) for how they treated the Christ. It seems to be that this was a very common attitude among Christianity, at least until the persecution of Jews in WWII brought a new perspective on things.

    Anyone more familiar with such things, I'd be interested in hearing how accurate this impression is.

    I don't believe God ever played any kind of favorites. The Bible is mostly revisionist bunk.

    i wonder....

    if i killed God's son,

    would he just leave me alone afterwards?

    i don't know if this is correct logic, but it is no streach of the imagination.
