    There's no laws on the books, we both know it, it's a discretionary action taken against zealots I know for a fact you couldn't cite Israeli law on this because none exists Also, if you didn't have time to look something up, how is it you have time to argue about something ? lol, take care

    https://www.state.gov/j/drl/rls/irf/2010/148825.htm there is no law against it, here's the full quote: " Proselytizing is legal in the country and missionaries of all religious groups are allowed to proselytize all citizens; however, a 1977 law prohibits any person from offering material benefits as an inducement to conversion. It was also illegal to convert persons under 18 years of age unless one parent were an adherent of the religious group seeking to convert the minor. Despite the legality of proselytism, the government has taken a number of steps that encouraged the perception that proselytizing is against government policy. For example, the MOI has detained individuals suspected of being “missionaries,” and required of such persons bail and a pledge to abstain from missionary activity, in addition to refusing them entry into the country. It maintained denunciations of such activity from antimissionary groups like Yad L'Achim in its border control databases. The MOI has also cited proselytism as a reason to deny student, work, and religious visa extensions, as well as to deny permanent residency petitions. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons) promised the Knesset in 1986 to refrain from all proselytism voluntarily in conjunction with receiving a building permit for its Jerusalem Center following protests from the Orthodox community. Some ultra-Orthodox groups that proselytize secular Jews, encouraging them to adopt ultra-Orthodox practices and beliefs, enjoyed government funding. The Ministry of Education funded a special network of schools aimed at promoting Orthodox Judaism to non-Orthodox Jewish children, and funded other organizations that hold similarly motivated activities " " Have you ever read Israels anti missionary laws? " ( You ) and these " anti-missionary laws " are what ?....where ?

    you mean this: "Proselytizing is legal in the country and missionaries of all religious groups are allowed to proselytize all citizens; however, a 1977 law prohibits any person from offering material benefits as an inducement to conversion "

    I didn't find any laws Israel has against it, just organizations in Israel Did you have a link to an Israeli government website that states this ? What I found is this: "Proselytizing is legal in the country and missionaries of all religious groups are allowed to proselytize all citizens; however, a 1977 law prohibits any person from offering material benefits as an inducement to conversion "

  10. Gen 6:17 " And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; andevery thing that is in the earth shall die " מבול mabbuwl - flood Psa 32:6 " For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him " שטף sheteph - flood Jos 24:3 " And I took your father Abraham from the other side of the flood, and led him throughout all the land of Canaan, and multiplied his seed, and gave him Isaac " נהר nahar - flood Psa 90:5 " Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are as a sleep: in the morning they are like grass which groweth up " זרם zaram - flood Amo 9:5 And the Lord GOD of hosts is he that toucheth the land, and it shall melt, and all that dwell therein shall mourn: and it shall rise up wholly like a flood; and shall be drowned, as by the flood of Egypt. יאור ye`or - flood ---------------------
  11. I like how it says: Dan 9:27 " And he shall confirm the covenant " with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate " Then turns around and says: Dan 11:28 " Then shall he return into his land with great riches; and his heart shall be against the holy covenant; and he shall do exploits, and return to his own land "
  12. Well...there's 4,000+ years of amazing literature and tradition behind the Bible, much of it online for study It always surprises me how people will accept an extra-biblical source of literature, when it comes to corroborating something in the Bible, like historical accounts of people, places or events, but then they will turn around and claim pre-Biblical literature and traditions are irrelevant when it comes to Bible study For me, personally, the Bible did not start to make any sense until I learned it's foundations
  13. There are traditions in exegesis of texts that were handled by / pertaining to the lines of priest-kings in Mesopotamia that held that certain things were only revealed to certain folks, like the Maggid revealed ( A tutelary spirit ) People who engage in long-winded arguments about things in the Bible may have missed this rather critical truth
