I’ve been harassed a lot in the past several months because of my taking a liking to Ron Paul. Forgive me for wanting limited government. I personally don’t like to think 25% of the time I spend at work is for the ‘Man.’ One of my biggest critiques of Ron Paul from Evangelicals is his stance on Israel. It comes down to dispensationalism. Ron Paul ‘doesn’t support Israel.’ I hear that phrase time and time again. Its as though these people on that little strip of sand constantly fought over across the pond are the only ‘chosen people.’ I’m not convinced of replacement theology. I’m more in line of a fulfillment theology. I read the Scriptures I have below and I don’t think that Netanyahu is one of God’s chosen people. He rejects Jesus. The promises are for Christ and his offspring.
Be mindful of all of Scripture when considering the Abrahamic Covenant. It’ll make you look at the promises of God and rejoice. That is most important. Not what you think of Ron Paul. He’s no Messiah. Many supporters think he is the ‘be all’ and ‘fix all’ of America. That’s not the case, but I think he’s a pretty good darn choice to lead the country.
I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed. – Genesis 12:3
Now the promises were made to Abraham and to his offspring. It does not say, “And to offsprings,” referring to many, but referring to one, “And to your offspring,” who is Christ. – Galatians 3:16
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise. – Galatians 3:29
