Here is an interesting video for all the Israel haters, and ones who promote boycotting Israel. Think again.
What does it mean to be God’s Elect or elected by God as a Christian?
Born-again Christians have been specially chosen [Elect] by God as His own and also for a rendering of a special service to Him, although, in the midst of this trouble, it may not seem that way. Furthermore, it may also seem like God , Himself, is a malicious vindictive God by purposely putting Christians through various kinds of desperate trials.
Therefore, as Christians , you have been elected, you have been chosen by God, not just to belong to Him as His children and as His people but, moreover, you have been chosen by God to remain in Him in whatever situation or circumstance or environment He has placed you in right now, whether it is short-term or even long-term. The truth is; you are where you are because of God whether you like not.
We are urged, if not commanded, to let our conduct be godly commanded and even holy because the Holy One who called us out of darkness has called us to live a life of holiness. We are urged to live in and among the world – the pagans – but not to become like them just for the sake of becoming popular or winning friends. (1 Peter 1:13-16)

Scores and scores of pseudo-Christians are looking for a spiritual experience rather than the truth of what God says through His word. I even heard some “Christian” say that she is bisexual and God made her that way. When she was asked, “…But what about where the Bible speaks against Homosexuality and one man and one wife…” she responded by saying that is outdated and she skips over silly verses like that because the bible needs to get with the culture. All she cares about is feeling good about herself and the only way she can achieve that is by connecting with people like “Hillsongs” where she can experience her true emotions.
Well, this is only one case amongst myriads of so many similar cases where so-called Christians are not interested in godliness but rather in emotionalism an autonomy.
