    The Light of the world, the Savior, the Alpha and Omega, the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, the Prince of Peace, the Word, the Way, the Truth, the Resurrection and the Life, Jesus Christ- victorious, powerful, loving and wise... but narrow-mined, I don't think so.

    Seeing how the bible speaks of two Jews that are in Israel,
    So as to which Jews are you in reference to?

    Alot of people are stump when ask this question, Of not knowing that the bible speaks of two Jews in Israel, So which Jews is which in Israel.

    Jesus confronted these Jews many times, Even in the book of Revelation, Jesus speaks about these Jews who claim to be of Israel and are not, But are of the synagogue of Satan's.

    Those Jews who claimed to be of Israel and are not, are those Jews, who had Jesus crucified on the cross.

    So the question is, Which Jews are you in reference to?

    No seeing the post you refer to, how do we know your statement is correct? No knee jerk reaction just common sense. What is the post and how do you substantiate your claim?

    I will ask you a question: What is narrow minded about healing the sick, feeding the hungry, curing the lame, making the blind to see and the deaf to hear and teaching all mankind to love God and others? Do you think you misread or have a different idea to the definitive meaning of what being ' narrow minded', means?

    Not sure of what you mean by "two Jews"
    unless you mean Jews of two different persuasions concerning Jesus.
    Some Jews saw him as fulfilling the Messianic prophecy of Redeemer
    and other saw him as not fulfilling the Messianic king.

    Do you serious think that, at that time, anyone had any idea of cultural relativism or anthropology?
    The only values and mythological precepts in general circulation at that time and place were largely local.

    and the comment there led to this

    He created everything in the Universe.

    I'm sure He has some idea.

    Jesus said he judged no-one, but his judgement is true.
    Guess he meant he didn't tell anyone if they were going
    to live or die spiritually, but he judged what was right and
    wrong. The latter is the judgement we all need to make.

    It's written in the stars, but you have to know where to look.

    Besides a personal spiritual witness, the same scriptures you would use to try and prove that He was narrow-minded.

    OK, I'll accept personal experience as a rationale for personal belief, but not as empirical evidence intended for anyone else, and the scriptures indicating narrow-mindedness are also not authoritative -- for some of the same reasons.
