    Who believes that christianity teaches that christ's death marked a new covenant for all of humanity? And that ALL humans must be save through christ?

    How many believe that christianity teaches christ's death covenant marked a new covenant with non jews and that gods covenant with the jews is still intact, and the jews, therefore, do not need jesus for salvation?

    I just picked the closest choice to my beliefs... I don't believe the Jews' covenant was cancelled; the old covenant never gave salvation. The old covenant was fulfilled (not cancelled) in Jesus Christ, and salvation given through Him. Salvation can only be gained through Jesus, and that goes for anyone in the world-- Jewish, Catholic, Protestant, Buddhist, Agnostic, etc.

    Fulfilled, cancelled, ended. six of one, half dozen of the other.

    This basic christian teaching is being CHANGED for political reasons.

    The wholly batshit crazy invention of "dispensationalism" is being taught in it's place.

    Just curious--I don't think I've actually every heard anyone " preach " dispensationalism. I thought it was just a kooky fad to try to get Jews and Christians together. ( I know--the "fad" has been around for awhile ).

    Kooky fad is very accurate. It's purely political, invented by masons, and sold with a strong dose of "nazi guilt".

    I was raised Catholic, my extended family is Catholic, some of my best friends are Catholic. Most Catholic Christians I know don't believe this. It may be a fringe group of Catholics, but most of the Catholics I know don't believe this, and I was never taught this in my VERY Catholic upbringing.
