Along the way, Schlosser exposes the cockroaches and rats found in fast food kitchens, the overworked and underpaid employees behind the cash registers, the mauled laborers trying to keep up with an accident-prone speed rate in meatpacking houses, and then, of course, the corporate greed driving the entire industry.

Obviously, one verse is not a sufficient criterion with which to condemn or condone an entire translation. It would also be helpful to use other key verses which, together with Romans 9: I would suggest Isaiah 7: Perhaps you could suggest others.
Only then can we please the Christ who died for us, the One who is over all, God blessed forever! This amazing statement is made even after giving five conclusive reasons as to why the minority of the Committee preferred to understand the expression as referring to Christ.
Lewis had to say about the remarkable claims made by Jesus Himself: Among the Jews there suddenly turns up a man who goes about talking as if He was God.
He claims to forgive sins. He says He has always existed. He says He is coming to judge the world at the end of time One part of the claim tends to slip past us unnoticed because we have heard it so often that we no longer see what it amounts to.
I mean the claim to forgive sins: Now unless the speaker is God, this is really so preposterous as to be comic He told people that their sins were forgiven, and never waited to consult all the other people whom their sins had undoubtedly injured.
He unhesitatingly behaved as if He was the party chiefly concerned, the person chiefly offended in all offences. This make sense only if He really was the God whose laws are broken and whose love is wounded in every sin. In the mouth of any speaker who is not God, these words would imply what I can only regard as a silliness and conceit unrivalled by any other character in history.
Yet and this is the strange, significant thing even His enemies, when they read the gospels, do not usually get the impression of silliness and conceit. Still less do unprejudiced readers. Christ says that He is "humble and meek" and we believe Him; not noticing that, if He were merely a man, humility and meekness are the very last characteristics we could attribute to some of His sayings.
Lunatic, Liar Or Lord I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: A man who was merely a man and said the sort of thing Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic--on a level with the man who says he is a poached egg--or else he would be the Devil of hell.
You must make your choice.
Either this man was, and is, the son of God: But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher.
He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to. Mere Christianity, Book 2, end of chapter 3 Note: The above quotation is shared because the author makes an excellent point and says it very well. Use of this quotation is not intended to be an endorsement of C.
Lewis or of any of his teachings found elsewhere. God has given wonderful promises to the Israelites in His Word. He promised them the land Gen. He promised that out of Abraham would come a great nation Gen. He promised a future kingdom age when there would be justice in all the earth Jer. He promised the Israelites that He would make a new covenant with them which would include the forgiveness of sins and a unique relationship with God Jer.
Most importantly they would enjoy the personal presence of Jehovah Himself Jehovah Jesus in their midst Isaiah At the time when Paul wrote to the Romans the great majority of Jews were rejecting Christ and rejecting the gospel.
The gospel Paul preached made it very clear that those who reject Christ are damned and doomed for eternity, and this includes unbelieving Jews. The gospel was reaching out more and more to Gentile nations.
When the church first began it was composed of Jewish believers Acts 2 but as time went on more and more Gentiles were saved and became a part of the body of Christ. Thus we have a problem: What about the Jews who refuse to believe in Christ?Fast Food Nation Chapter Globalization of Fast Food – Consumers Leading World to Uniformity In the book “Fast Food Nation”, Eric Schlosser breaks down the fast food industry both in the United States and around the globe into various sections.
