Tell me, why is that the Pharisees, Sadducees, etc. were so convinced that they were Yah’s children? If you read Matthew 24 etc you’d find that they were more like reps for the Other Side.
And do white American and Canadian evangelicals claim to be Yah’s children, when they clearly love money, fame & power more than Adonai, and obviously hate their neighbours?
Since the “Puritans” until now, we have taken the best land for ourselves and killed off millions of North American indigenous people.
And we refuse to repent or acknowledge the evil we and our forefathers have committed.
As with David’s story with the Gibeonites, even hundreds of years later, El Shaddai never forgets atrocities and “requires it from our hand”.
Our only option: repentance.
Amazing how we white Christians think we are so pure, innocent, right with God, walking the narrow path, following the Way, the Truth & the Life.
But if you examine it, we are the same as the Pharisees and Saduccees: we always imagine that we are God’s children, when we are the sons and daughters of . . .
