    Every year, I get their privacy, etc. letter, but although the email and details are correct, the name is not. I contacted PayPal and they said that the name doesn't matter, but I'd like to know WHY they can't fix this. Anyone else see this or know how to fix it? Thanks!

  • Anyone know if the owners of the Star Buffet in Chalfont have opened a new restaurant?

    I know the Star Buffett on US-202 closed and has been replaced by another Chinese buffet (the sister restaurant is on PA-113 in Souderton), but I LOVED Star Buffet and keep hoping that Sue opens a new place.

    And if you do not, how do you reconcile the admonition in the Sh'ma with not wearing T'fillin? Thanks! (edit - it actually suggested the correct category for once! Is the world ending?)

  • Answering for Jews - hubris or ignorance?

    Someone asked a question about why Jews do not believe that Jesus was the Messiah (yet another question on this!), but added that since Paul and the others were Jews, their words carried no weight.

    Someone asked a question about why Jews do not believe that Jesus was the Messiah (yet another question on this!), but added that since Paul and the others were Jews, their words carried no weight. The following answers were posted (among others): 1. Jews have no authority to speak for the Old Testament prophets who predicted the messiah. They've changed their own religion so much (to the rabbinic form) that they don't really understand the old version. When they become a nation of shepherds again, with a temple and animal sacrifice, they'll have the context to understand better. Until then, just read the OT for yourself. THAT is the authority on the messiah. 2. Modern Jews believe that people like James, Peter, Paul and the other followers of Jesus were all deceived and became what you might refer to as "renegades". Sadly, they haven't bothered reading their own Scriptures objectively! They have even rewritten some of the text. For instance, in Isaiah 53, they change the pronouns left and right. When it actually says "He was bruised for our iniquities", for instance, they change it to read "We were bruised for their iniquities." At one time, the Jews actually believed in a Messiah. They have thrown off the Scriptures and claim that each generation has its own messiah to rescue the Jews; and that Israel is messiah to the world. (such as, changing "By his stripes we are healed" to "by our stripes they are healed.") It's obviously intellectual suicide, since they simply do not want to believe the Scriptures as they are clearly written. They don't WANT to believe in THE Messiah. They don't like the "Christianization" of the name - they don't like the NAME "Jesus", since so many bad things were done to the Jews in the NAME of "Jesus". But God has reserved a remnant who have not bowed the knee to the false ideology and false god that the Jews have raised up in place of God, just as in the day of Elijah =================== Are these answers (which are, in effect, saying that we do not know our own scripture and we are mistaken about our religion) due to ignorance (which I hope can be discussed with all having open minds - educational experience) or hubris (we know better than you about your own religion and you are all wrong)? Whaddya think, folks?

I cannot believe that so many people are "wanna-be's", but that's what it looks like! I understand if you identify with certain Jewish rituals (they are lovely and heartfelt), you may feel you are following Jesus in his original (since he was Jewish), but to identify yourself by another's label is misleading at best and at worst, deceitful. Why would people do so?

Will they say: 1) Sorry.........I never realized you were real. 2) But no one ever told me about this. 3) Is it too late to trust in you now? Why not avoid these questions by turning to the only One who can save us from sin? Because remember; it's not a matter of "if" you will meet Him someday.......it's a matter of "when" By the way, this isn't a rant.........this is a legitimate question with a plea for your response to Christ.....not to me. Thanks for listening -Name of person was inserted here Additional Details 1 hour ago This just in: Not believing is the same as being an enemy of God. There is no gray area here. You're either for Him or against Him. So disbelief is the same as hate in this case. ============================ I'm at a loss to explain.
