“Are you saying that all Christians should hate Jews?”
So you’re okay with Jews going to hell since they do not believe in Jesus Christ? Who hates who here?

According to your definition, apparently Jesus hates Jews. Which doesn't sound right, does it?
If you consult the Bible, you will find that God tells the Jews that His covenant with them is “forever.” And St. Paul repeats that in one of his epistles.
Yes, Jesus established a New Covenant. But God continues to keep the Old Covenant with the Jews. The Jews were offered the New Covenant, and many or most of them accepted it. But the Old Covenant will remain with those faithful Jews who have chosen to remain where they are.
Christianity fulfilled the promises made to Israel. It did not supersede them. Judaism still remains a religion to which God is faithful—so long as they are faithful to Him.
They are always welcome to come over to the New Covenant. But they are not damned for not doing so, so long as they are faithful to the Old Covenant. God repeatedly made that assurance in the Old Testament. “Forever” is forever. And St. Paul repeated that. Obviously Paul approved of conversion—he was converted himself. But he did not say that the Jews would all be damned if they remained faithful to the old Covenant.
I speak definitively for all Jews when I say that we don’t care where others think we’re going for belief or non-belief in their religion(s.) We are nudniks. We don’t care. Go G-d!
Interesting, GPH, just to be clear, that is your viewpoint, right? That the old covenant with the Jews is broken and destroyed and that they will go to hell in your opinion?
