Heh, my title was a bit misleading there. But I want to discuss how you guys feel about having extra sympathy for Israel, since they were God's chosen ones in the past. Here is what I have to say: I believe that we should love all, including Israelites, but I believe that we should not have any extra sympathy for them. They got taken over many, many times, and they are now a burden to the nations and kind of ridiculed. God said that if they fell away from Him, He would punish then, which He did. I believe that they are now just like any other country, nothing special. I also believe that modern day Israel is not the same as ancient Israel. But it wouldn't even matter, because modern Israel STILL hates God. What are your thoughts? Staff Edit - Refer to the rules before posting.
