You write a book in reply each time daniel, enough already, the fact is you are wrong friend. St. Jerome knew what he was translating. The Bible is inerrant. You can’t justify the Protestant changes to Scripture. You are not to add or take away says the Bible.
This is why no will discuss Revelation 12:13 or reply to why Our Lord keeps addressing Mary as the woman.
(Rev 12:13) “And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman WHICH brought forth the man child.”
“That is easy, Israel as the people of God brought forth Christ, Mary being an Israelite, and to which nation the sun and moon typology fits, and the church became the Israel of God (Gal. 6:16) which the devil is the adversary of, as Peter says. (1Pt. 5:8)”

Israel did not bring forth Christ just because you say it. Israel is a nation not a “woman.” The “woman WHO (it doesn’t say WHICH, another change in a Bible translation) brought forth the man child, Our Lord is His mother. You’re forgetting or rejecting again, Mary is the devil’s adversary. God speaks to the devil in Rev 14 and then in verse 15 God states ~ I will put enmities between thee and the woman, and thy seed and her seed:...
The church did not become the “Israel of God”, this is the New Covenant. Christ’s Church (singular) is the Roman Catholic Church. Protestantism rejected and broke away from the Church.
“Israel did not bring forth Christ just because you say it. Israel is a nation not a woman.
I have referenced and placed this before you before (http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/religion/2871838/posts?page=135#135), but it seems as if you have a one track mind, and suffer from ignorance of Scripture:
“Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises; Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen. “ (Romans 9:4-5)
“The church did not become the Israel of God, this is the New Covenant.”
Those ar the words of the Holy Spirit, and I also referenced this to you:
“And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God. “ (Galatians 6:16)
