While googling around for the name Shiloh, I came across a Christian site that discussed the events of Shiloh and I sent out this message:-
As I live in Shiloh, the original Shiloh in Israel, I am happy to see you discussing spiritual concepts related to the site of the Tabernacle.
And I received a reply:-
It's amazing how deep the Scriptures are with all these references and types foreshadowing Christ.
To which I answered:-
Which elicited this reaction:-
None can compare to Christ
So, I wrote back:-
well, if you mean that as a generic term or as a translation for Messiah, I'm in agreement.
And then Troy insisted:-
No it is not a generic term. Jesus is a real person and God as proven.
The moment had come. I had to be blunt:-
As I am Jewish, I respect your religious beliefs but they are not mine.
As Hannah already prayed here at Shiloh, "There is none holy as the LORD, for there is none beside Thee; neither is there any rock like our God." I Samuel 2:2.
That didn't sit too well with Troy who responded:-
Then you are going to hell. The LORD in 1 Sam. 2.2 therefore, effectively is not the one you worship, for you reject Him who is your sacrifice to atone for your sins (Is. 53). God gave Himself for you, and you reject this mercy through His only begotten Son-the suffering servant!
I attempted to be moderate:-
I really thought we were having a decent theological conversation. Please, don't threaten me with hell. After all that has been done in the name of a nice Jewish boy from Judea to the Jewish people over the past two millenia, I don't think any Christian today has any right to threaten a Jew with hell.
You need not reply.
It didn't help:-
I am not threatening you with hell but imparting to you the fact of the Scriptures what is going to happen to you. If you are a Jew or from any other nation that calls Jesus a liar, you are going to hell. That is why I am convinced you're going to hell. I am just being honest with you by the evidence God has provided. You don't have to reply. Just give your life to Christ to be saved. There is no other way to the Father except through Christ. My prayers go out to you.
I stopped the "dialogue" at that point.
