I wonder how many have actually thought through the ramifications of "replacement theology."

If God has "replaced" Israel with the Church than He is a liar. If God can break His word to the Jews than what is keeping Him from breaking His word to the the Church? He is VERY specific who is His chosen nation, chosen for a specific purpose. He is also very specific that ALL can be saved through the Jewish Messiah, and enter into covenant with Him.

God is a covenant keeping God that is the same today, yesterday and forever. I am bewildered that so many would choose to believe that God reneges on His promises to His people. God is FAITHFUL to complete ALL that He has promised.

Yes. Reformed theology has many bankrupt accounts.

It’s not totally bankrupt, just parts of the whole are.

INDEED TO THE MAX.

However, human nature is sooooooooooooo addicted to rationalizing. We seem quite able to rationalize all kinds of horrible stuff quite away . . . or even evil into good.

But this sure is a mind-boggling example. There are soooooooooooooooo many redundant redundant again again Scriptures about HIS UTTER FAITHFULNESS TO ABRAHAM AND ABRAHM'S SEED--IT'S MORE THAN IRON CLAD, TO ME.

I also think the PURPOSE is lost--the PURPOSE OF HIS PROMISES TO ABRAHAM.

His promises to Abraham are only partially a kind of thanks to Abraham as GOD'S FRIEND.

THEY ARE PRIMARILY FOR GOD TO DISPLAY HIS GLORY THROUGH HIS FAITHFULNESS TO HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE.

And if REPLACEMENTARIANS THINK that God is going to abandon displaying HIS GLORY through the seed of Abraham--they really are clueless . . . and evidently willfully so.

Since no one here actually teaches “replacement theology” there are no ramifications to consider, except in a purely academic sense.

See Not Replacement...Expansion! by Fred Klett.

It’s pretty clear that so-called “replacement theology” is a boogeyman created in the fertile mind of futurist who see their grip on the Church slowly slipping away and more and more of their “prophecies” about the end times fail to materialize. And so they invented “replacement theology” as a whipping boy to divert attention away from the own exegetical and theological failures.

Every time someone point out the failure of futurist to tell us much of anything that is useful, the cry goes out “replacement theology” to divert us way from the fact that the futurist emperor has no clothes.
