Hecklers Corner

Dan wrote in response to John Pipers video:

"Why John Piper is so exited self persuaded and self deluded!!! How he dare to think that he is right in his belief? Let me remind you that Christianity was created by Jews for the Jews at the first place. But because of the Roman conquest of Israel it spread dramatically into the pagan world and been adopted by them. The gentile changed some critical signs of belief in order to make it comfortable to the pagans and that when Christianity deserted its links with Judaism and God and became a new one in nature and structure. Christians might declare the Christianity is the only true belief in the world but it’s not obligatory to non Christians. They might say the same about their own religion, as the Muslims and Buddhist already say.
The Jewish prophecy is well in advance as we see how Jews came out of the ashes and gathered in their land and created a wonderful society. I think that no Christian has the right to preach to Jews in what they should believe in. he God of Jesus was the God of the Jews and still is. Now as we see Jews are gathering to live in the land of Israel we only can say that God was right and his prophecy as declared by his Jewish prophets is being fulfilled and alive.
Judaism is the law, belief and prophecy of the Jewish people and the other believes are the Noah believes as states in the Old Testimony. See no reason to change the “live and let live”

My Response: Dan, do you think you are "right" in what you believe? If you believe you are "right" are you asserting that Piper should not be asserting that he is right?

Jesus said "I am the way, the truth and the life no one comes to the Father but by me." Piper is merely affirming the truth of what Jesus said... that He is the ONLY WAY to heaven.

I think this one section of your post is the main point of what needs to be addressed: "he God of Jesus was the God of the Jews and still is."

Actually the bible states not that "he God of Jesus" but that Jesus IS God. Second Person of the Trinity. That is why Jesus said "Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM." John 8:58. I believe THAT is your main issue. Please understand that Jesus is the Messiah, who died on a cross for your sins and rose again that you may have eternal life if you repent and believe. If you knew Christ you would know God, but because you deny the Son you don't have the Father either. Jesus warned "you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I AM, you will die in your sins." John 8:24
