Before Gentiles become Israelites, in what condition are they?


"Wherefore remember, that you being in time past Gentiles, at that time you were without Christ, being
aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and
without God in the world." Eph. 2: 11,12.
NOTE - If, in order to be saved, Gentiles must become Israelites as is everywhere asserted, then
when converted from their Gentile ways to the ways of Israel, they certainly must have faith in Christ, and
their lives must conform to the moral law which God gave to Israel, otherwise it would not be the
commonwealth of Israel, but of the Gentiles. The writing of the law in the heart is one of the provisions of
the new covenant with true Israel. See Jer. 31: P-34; Heb. 8: 8-12.
