Why are so many christians hypocrites?

Jesus called some Jews children of the devil. In romans 9:6, paul says that not all of Israel is israel. Why can't Christians see these very same things are true today? Take for example, the country of Israel. Israel stole palestinian land and took it from them. I know most fake christians will mention that it was Israeli land to begin with, but Jesus Christ prophesied that Israel would be taken from the jews, and it came true when the romans kicked them out. Thus it was Jesus' word that removed the Jews from their land because they did not follow God's laws given to them. Also, Israel oppresses and murders people all around the world, including Americans. did you know that the average Israel receives over 20,000 dollars from USA tax payers? How much money did you receive? Most Americans don't receive that much, that's for sure, and you're required to pay taxes. Did you know that USA paid for Israel's war against Lebanon this past fall? Why do Americans tolerate this slavery when these people are obviously not the same Israelites mentioned in the bible. They do not even follow Moses' law Thou shalt not kill (and in hebrew that means no killing of any kind whatsoever). It is obvious that Israelis (zionists) do not follow Judaic law. In fact, Israel openly follows a program of assassination. Israel also steals water from palestinians who are lucky to have running water two hours a week. Research the israeli death rates, and you will see that for every israeli that dies, about 100 palestinians die. WHo is protecting themselves from whom? Yes, suicide bombers are bad, but does that warrant the wholesale murder and destruction of the palestinians? As christians, i think the answer is no, and yet so many christians openly support Israel today, which is not Israel of the bible.

You seriously need to reread the Bible's stance on Israel. It also mentions the battles and diaspora of the Jews and mentions that no one will win against Israel. the USA did not pay for Israel's "war" either, thats just false. Israel is attacked from all sides. They are picked on by all the Islamic countries around it. To ignore the hatred and actions of terrorists from Iran, Syria, Lebanon, and across the MidEast and instead see their sympathetic side shows an agenda.

You clearly did not read what I wrote. Instaed, you chose to be blind and post ignorance for a mere 4 cents. Let me reiterate: There is Israel of the bible, and there is a nation that today calls itself Israel. They are not the same. Israel of the bible follows Judaic law, including Moses's laws, including the 10 commandments, which include THOU SHALT NOT KILL. The exact Hebrew wording of this biblical phrase is lo tirtzack which accurately translates as "any kind of killing whatsoever." http://www.thenazareneway.com/thou_shalt_not_kill.htm

Yeah, I did read your post. All it is is anti-Zionist and anti-Christian opinions mascarading as a question. You aren't even asking a question, you are making an unrelated statement. Lets put it this way, your opinion on Israel's actions is not a factor in God's deciding what to label what or what to do.

My "opinion"? Most of the things I posted were from the bible. Then I followed up the bible quotes with FACTS that are common knowledge to anyone who bothers to read about what's going on in the world. I think you're confusing my FACTS with your opinion. Obviously, God does not have to listen to me, but even God has to follow God's own laws (God's word). Maybe you should step out of your zone of comfort and educate yourself. Let me help you out. If I said I was Jesus, would you believe me? So why is it when a country calls itself Israel you believe it?

I think you are confusing modern politics with religious texts that were laid down two thousand years ago.

I think you have studied history on internet...Get some real books, man. Christians are no hypocrites, and no other adepts of a religion, but their leaders surely are...

Are you sayin the bible is not a real book? Do you support Israel? You didn't refute any of the evidence I mentioned.

I found that not only christians are hyprocites. Most of us sometimes can be hypocrite as well, regardless what our religion is.

Don't lump all us Christians in one group, dude. Not all of us blindly follow every word in the Bible or believe that it was actually written by god. Some of us can distance the cultural and historical relevance of the Bible when it was written from how it applies to life today. We aren't all cut from the same cloth.

I am a christian and am happy to call myself a hypocrite if those are the views a christian is supposed to follow. There are wrong doings on all sides, from every country. Blaming it on one side is narrow minded and naive.
