    Hmm,so basically all the books up till now that I've read are concluding GODs desire for a ONE WAY belief system,all others are a snare unto him and his ordinance,people were literally killed for believing N other forms of God and not following his commandments,so when you see all this other religion and culture,I wonder would they be killed for doing such stuff,I wonder what will happen to them..

    True, He also said in His word that He would take the church from out of the church, so it goes to show you that it's not all people who say that they are circumcised is truely circumcise. And yes I know that circumcision in the Spirit is a renew way of thinking and living honoring God's will.
  • Bruce
    Faith: For he is not a Jew which is one outwardly;neither is that circumcision,which is outward in the flesh: but he is a Jew which is one inwardly and circumcision is that of The Heart---Romans 2:28-29 /--- for they are not all Israel, which are of Israel: Romans 9:6
  • Faith Coke
    Wow! The term Israel is use for the circumcised heart, its use for those people who are obedient to Christ.
    Also, the Gentiles are a people who don't know God and do serve the devil through lack of knowledge, religion, or free will. So when a person turn to Christ they are no longer A gentile, but become part of Israel.

    Wow thank you, Holy Spirit.

    God loved His people , AND the gentile idol worshippers around them. He didn't just kill the Gentiles; they KNEW of the Israelites long before and how they were saved out of Egypt, but didn't want any part of it - so God destroyed them so His people wouldn't be drawn into their sin, BUT He always left a few for temptation - to see if they loved Him enough to serve Him only.
