We may follow a 2000 year old book, but that book just happens to be THE WORD OF GOD.
It's not called THE for nothing.
Do you really expect us to turn our back on our Lord and Savior?
Do you know what God does to people who choose not to follow HIM?
He gives them an Eternity in Hell, that's what he does.
The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. For the needy shall not always be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.
By the logic you present, then only North America and the believers inside can be saved. That is entirely incorrect, from both a historical and biblical perspective. The only thing given to the people by God, well, things, are possibilities at Eternal Life through belief in Jesus, and the gift of the Holy Spirit. He has given 'Christians' nothing material. There is no set Christian Holy Land. There has never been listed, or marked, holy land set aside for Christians.
Also, God does not give a person eternity in hell. He, personally, never has. All that was marked out, clear as day in scripture, is that you will be cast into the lake of fire upon being damned. And to be damned, you must have damned yourself; whether it be by not believing, rebuking, or sinning with no remorse or seeking of forgiveness. It's you're own fault for failing according to scripture. God has no part in you falling to your own eternal suffering.
And finally, don't start a post off with a line that seems like a put down or an incitement. It only looks worse on you.
