Qn) If a person is accursed, it means that they are under God’s wrath / judgement. Is the church accursed, or is it that Paul is saying that unbelieversare under God’s wrath? (Note: John 3:18, 36; Romans 2:8-12; Galatians 1:6-9).Would this mean, according to the CONTEXT in Romans 9 that the ones who donot believe the Gospel are accursed & are they unbelieving Jews?(VII) The Church of Christ (Christians) are not the ones who are ignorant of God’s righteousness & going about trying to establish their own righteousness. Itis the unbelieving Jews as is pointed out inRomans 10:1-4.Was Paul praying for Israel or for the Church to be saved?(VIII) God would use those who are of a different nation to provoke the Jews toanger & Jealousy(Romans 10:17-21). Is it Israel or the Christian church that would get provoked?(IX) According toRomans 11:1-6, Paul who was writing to the church said thatGod hath NOT cast away his people which He foreknew?
In verse 1, was Paul speaking of his literal bloodline descent or was hetalking about a Christian denomination when he referred to, “...the tribeof Benjamin?
In verse 2. does Paul mention that Elijah was interceding against Israel orthe Church?
According to verse 3 did the Church kill the prophets on did Israel?
Was Israel blinded or was it the church? Who are the Elect?(X) According toRomans 11:25-29it is Israel who is blind, and it is Israel in herunsaved state that are enemies (opposed) to the Gospel … BUT they still AREBELOVED for the fathers` sakes.(XI) Replacement Theology also ignores the fact that the New Testament refersto 3 literal groups of people, now existing at the same time even till this day.These three groups are: Unsaved Jews, Unsaved Gentiles, & the Church of God(which is made up of saved Jews & Gentiles). This is also very clearly pointed outin1Corinthians 10:13.
“Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor tothe church of God:..” -1Corinthians 10:32.It is the third group of people mentioned in this verse -the Church,wherein it doesn't matter what your bloodline, background, socialstatus or sex is, for IN CHRIST ALL ARE ONE (Galatians 3:26-29). This is the Israel of God /spiritual Israel (Galatians 6:15-16)where a Jew physically can also become a Jew Spiritually / Inwardly(Romans 2:27-29).
