z, God made several promises to Abraham in Gen 15. Let's look at a couple specifics (please tell me if you think he's a mythic creation though as that kind of poses as an obstacle to my point).
God predicts the slavery in Egypt and then a few verses later says:
Gen 15:18 In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:
Gen 15:19 The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites,
Gen 15:20 And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims,
Gen 15:21 And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.
Here is a physical promise of phyiscal land made to Abraham's physical children.
Then in chapter 17 (after several other promises) he says:
Gen 17:7 And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an EVERLASTING COVENANT, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.
Gen 17:8 And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the LAND wherein thou art a stranger, all the LAND OF CANAAN, for an EVERLASTING POSSESSION; and I will be their God.
Now, you can spit all you want...but it's clear that God is not hyper-spiritualizing or making some veiled reference to spiritual victory by the gentile church. He clearly says that he has an EVERLASTING COVENANT with Abraham's children (though Isaac...the Jews) and that he would give them the LAND OF CANANN AS AN EVERLASTING POSSESSION.
Now, let God be true and every man a liar. You can disregard this and a myriad of other verses I could provide and say that it's really not an everlasting covenant, or that it's not really talking about the land of canaan, or that the gentile church will rule in Israel or some such other nonesense. But when taken in whole with all the other prophecies that are as explicit as this one concerning Israel, its clear that you have an issue with God and His word (and His chosen people) not a particular theology.
I will be happy to continue down this path and examine many other verses and perhaps you can show me how the Land of Caanan isn't really canaan etc (like 1 really means 3, and Jesus name baptism doesn't really mean in His name, and that Jesus' references to Adam and Noah support their mythical stature etc.)
Look man, I don't mean to come down harshly but you continue to post about this stuff like some kind of obsession. I don't usually say to much about it (despite believing you are wrong) because it's pretty clear to me and not a pet issue. But give it a break already. You have been riding this horse non stop. I mean, even I stopped debating the godhead and baptism for a while. You are so entrenched that you don't recognize that you take minor points and are trying to build somehthing that isn't there...
Again, in my opinion and stated in the spirit of "I was spitting on that one..." ;-)
