    The more one loves God, the more it is that having nothing in the world means everything, and the less one loves God, the more it is that having everything in the world means nothing.

    Do not resist an evil person, but to him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer also the other. ~Matthew 5:39

    No thanks.

    I know that argumentation is not my greatest skill.

    Furthermore, there is nothing to debate. I'm thoroughly convinced that the Bible is the Word of God.

    The best argument I could make is to simply quote Scripture.

    Using that method, I could prove that 'The Lord of the Rings' is the word of a hobbit.

    Well, thankfully, God does not require me to prove anything. He only requires me to proclaim his Word.

    But only to the Jews: "These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: 'Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans. Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel.'" (Matthew 10:5-6).

    Yes, at that particular time, those were his instructions.

    What is your point?

    That you should not proclaim it here in the open.

    Are you basing that statement on the Scripture you quoted?

    I don't see the connection.

    Jesus wants his followers to go only to other Jews. You are one of his followers, but not all of us reading your posts are Jews.

    That's simply not true.

    Yes, in Matthew 10, Jesus instructs the disciples to preach only to the Jews.

    But later, in Matthew 28, after Jesus has died and has been resurrected, he instructs the disciples to preach to all the world:


    Matthew 28

    Now after the Sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men. But the angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. See, I have told you." So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples. And behold, Jesus met them and said, "Greetings!" And they came up and took hold of his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me."
    The Report of the Guard
    While they were going, behold, some of the guard went into the city and told the chief priests all that had taken place. And when they had assembled with the elders and taken counsel, they gave a sufficient sum of money to the soldiers and said, "Tell people, 'His disciples came by night and stole him away while we were asleep.' And if this comes to the governor's ears, we will satisfy him and keep you out of trouble." So they took the money and did as they were directed. And this story has been spread among the Jews to this day.
    The Great Commission
    Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."
