Re: Do Chrsitians/Gentiles see Jews as regular human beings?
It is a sad fact that most of the persecutions of the Jewish people through the ages have originated with "Christian nations".It is a sad testimony of those who have claimed Jesus. I am not saying all Christians have believed or participated only that from the Jewish peoples perspective much of the persecutions have come through "the church". From the slaughters of whole cities of Jews ( and Muslims) during the crusades. to the Spanish inquisitions to the atrocities of the Nazis and the pograms and persecutions in the eastern nations.It is very hard to overcome the reality of these events as some have happened in recent history. Much more recent then the iissue of the mistreatment of the native Americans and the Slave trade of the blacks. And the numbers of Jewish people slaughtered through the ages almost defies the imagination as it no doubt far exceeds the 6 million of the Holocost victims. Mans inhumaity knows no bounds it seems and the first step to genocide of any race is dehumanization. Satan is obviously the source behind this evil and wants to exterminate the offspring of Abraham.Unfortunately the adversary has used religion as a platform to accomplish this.
The Lost tribes may very well be among the Christian nations primarily. But I very much doubt that any true reconciliation can take place until Messiah physically returns. And the blinds of both groups are removed.
Still showing love and praying for healing is the first step and it is the beginning of any spiritual healing.
