Do keep up, evangelicals

Even rabbis are publicly teaching that there is no longer a covenant between the Jewish nation and the God of the Old Testament.

At the synagogue where I belong, Shaarey Zedek Congregation in suburban Detroit, Rabbi Aaron Starr  sermonized on Shavuot  that there no longer is a Covenant between the Jews and their God.

He quoted Richard Rubenstein, author of Beyond Auschwitz, who wrote: “I believe the greatest single challenge to modern Judaism arises out of the question of God and the death camps.  I believe that our problem is how to speak of religion in an age of no God.”

He also quoted Rabbi Irving (Yitz) Greenberg, who wrote: “What then happened to the covenant?  I submit that its authority was broken.”

That settles that, then. But I’m pretty sure that particular covenant was broken a long time before Auschwitz.
