The Charge of Replacement Theology is a Cover for Fuzzy Theology

Joseph Farah of WND (WorldNetDaily) has written the following in an article titled “To those Israel-rejecting Christians. . .”:

“[A]n evil doctrine known as Replacement Theology, every bit as ugly as Liberation Theology, has taken root in the church. I’m sorry to say it, but you’ve got to discard or allegorize much of the Bible to adopt either one of these views and still call yourself a Christian.”

Here’s a challenge, Joseph. Set up a debate with Joel Rosenberg and me on the meaning of Ezekiel 38 and 39 to see who “allegorizes.” Like the “Replacement Theology” straw man, someone who does not agree with the modern-day, end-time approach to Bible prophecy is labelled an “allegorizer.”

Replacement Theology is defined as the belief that the Church has replaced Israel and that God is finished with the Jews read rest of article

People of Greece: You Are Being Slaughtered

The following MUST be seen in the context of a most ancient of rivalries, contentions, and hostilities.  This rivalry was addressed by Paul in Galatians 3:28 where “Greek” is used interchangeably with “Gentile”;

“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”

It is also addressed by Paul in Ephesians 2;

“11 Therefore remember that at one time you Gentiles in the flesh, called “the uncircumcision” by what is called the circumcision, which is made in the flesh by hands— 12 remember that you were at that time separated from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. 13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. 14 For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility 15 by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, 16 and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby killing the hostility. 17 And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near.”

And the ‘migrant’ crisis and refugee crisis in Europe we hear so much about these days is used as a scapegoat to divert your attention and anger from those actually slaughtering you …

 

An Open Letter to the People of Greece:  You Are Being Slaughtered

By Peter Koenig

You are being slaughtered right in front of the world’s eyes and nobody says beep. Least the Greek elite. Your Government. A few, but a few too many, allow the slaughter because it doesn’t concern them. They are blinded by the false glamour of the euro and of belonging to the ‘elite class’ of the noble Europeans (sic!).

They apparently live well enough, including the caviar socialists of Syriza. They let their country bleed to death literally, morally, socially and psychologically. Medical care is no longer available or privatized and unaffordable. Pensions were reduced five times. They were never more than a survival kit. By now they have been slashed in some cases by over 50%. Hordes of people live on food handouts. Most social services, including to a large extent education have been sold out, privatized. Gone with a flicker. Gone, by order of Germany – and the holy troika – the criminal gang of three, IMF, European Central Bank (EIB) and the European Commission (EU); the latter a mere bunch of unelected corrupt puppets, deciding the fate of some 800 million Europeans – with YOU, the Greek people, accepting carrying the brunt end of the stick.read rest of Open Letter

 

Judaism’s view of Jesus

Among followers of Judaism, Jesus is viewed as having been the most influential, and consequently the most damaging, of all false messiahs.  However, since the traditional Jewish belief is that the messiah has not yet come and the Messianic Age is not yet present, the total rejection of Jesus as either messiah or deity has never been a central issue for Judaism.

Judaism has never accepted any of the claimed fulfillments of prophecy that Christianity attributes to Jesus. Judaism also forbids the worship of a person as a form of idolatry, since the central belief of Judaism is the absolute unity and singularity of God.    Jewish eschatology holds that the coming of the Messiah will be associated with a specific series of events that have not yet occurred, including the return of Jews to their homeland and the rebuilding of The Temple, a Messianic Age of peace and understanding during which “the knowledge of God” fills the earth, and since Jews believe that none of these events occurred during the lifetime of Jesus (nor have they occurred afterwards), he is not a candidate for messiah.

Traditional views of Jesus have been mostly negative, although in the Middle Ages Judah Halevi and Maimonides viewed Jesus (like Muhammad) as an important preparatory figure for a future universal ethical monotheism of the Messianic Age. Some modern Jewish thinkers have sympathetically speculated that the historical Jesus may have been closer to Judaism than either the Gospels or traditional Jewish accounts would indicate, starting in the 18th century with the Orthodox Jacob Emden and the reformer Moses Mendelssohn. This view is still espoused by some.

Background

The belief that Jesus is God, the Son of God, or a person of the Trinity, is incompatible with Jewish theology. Jews believe Jesus did not fulfill messianic prophecies that establish the criteria for the coming of the messiah.  Authoritative texts of Judaism reject Jesus as God, Divine Being, intermediary between humans and God, messiah or saint. Belief in the Trinity is also held to be incompatible with Judaism, as are a number of other tenets of Christianity.

In Judaism, the idea of God as a duality or trinity is heretical — it is even considered by some polytheistic.  According to Judaic beliefs, the Torah rules out a trinitarian God in Deuteronomy (6:4): “Hear Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is one.”

Judaism teaches that it is heretical for any man to claim to be God, part of God, or the literal son of God. The Jerusalem Talmud (Ta’anit 2:1) states explicitly: “if a man claims to be God, he is a liar.”                                                            Read the full article

 

 

 

How did the Talmudic “Noahide Laws” Become Part of American Law?

By Bill Dannemeyer
U.S. Congressman, 1979-1992

     “Your U.S. government can now legally kill Christians for the “crime” of worshipping Jesus Christ!  A diabolic deception has been perpetrated on the American people by their OWN leaders, Senators and Congressmen, who have sold their soul to the devil.  On March 5, 1991, in the House of Representatives, and March 7, 1991, in the U.S. Senate, without any knowledge of, or input by, the people of the United States, U.S. Senators and Congressmen passed a law that is so outrageous – and frankly unconstitutional – that it forces the American people to be bound by a set of monstrous rules, called the Noahide Laws, rules that make the belief in Jesus Christ a crime punishable by decapitation by guillotine!  On March 20, 1991, President George H.W. Bush, a supposed Christian, signed the bill into law.

          Before you respond, “NO, that cannot be – not in our free country!” let me explain.

          The passage of this law, HJ Res. 104, is especially troublesome to me because I was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives at the time it was passed.  Even worse, I was in the House Chamber the very day that is was passed, voting on other legislation.  Yet I, as a U.S. Congressman, had NO KNOWLEDGE that it had been passed or even that it was to be brought up for a vote.

          How could this be?  How could the deception be so pervasive that those of us who had sworn to uphold our country’s Constitution, particularly those of us (few, indeed) who really took our position seriously as the protectors of the people, could be totally in the dark regarding the content of this bill and its passage by the leaders of this country – by treachery and deceit?

          Here’s how it happened!

          On January 31, 1991, an innocuous-sounding Resolution was introduced, designating March 26, 1991 as “Education Day, USA.”  It was purposely given this name to deceive the American people.  It was, in fact, a Double Deception because not only did the Resolution have nothing to do with “Education,” it was also deceptively billed as a vehicle for recognizing the eighty-ninth birthday of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson.  But in truth, the Resolution was nothing less than a secret, under-handed plot to control the American people by the Noahide Laws – a subterfuge for the elimination of Christianity, the elimination of all Christians, and the enslavement of all remaining “Gentiles.”” read entire article

A Miracle of God didn’t Create Israel, Britain Did

Prime Minister Theresa May told us that Britain will celebrate the centenary of the Balfour Declaration this summer with “pride”. This was predictable. A British prime minister who would fawn to the head-chopping Arab autocrats of the Gulf in the hope of selling them more missiles – and then hold the hand of the insane new anti-Muslim president of the United States – was bound, I suppose, to feel “pride” in the most mendacious, deceitful and hypocritical document in modern British history. read rest of article

Christian Zionism

Start your investigation into the promoted religion of Christian Zionism by watching our compelling, 32 minute documentary:

What is Christian Zionism

 

 

This largely political activity is a lifelong work of discovery by the founders of We Hold These Truths. Christian Zionism is confusing because it masquerades as a faith. We may have been the first to define Christian Zionism as: “the belief that the present day State of Israel is the fulfillment of Biblical prophesy. ”As such, Israel has assumed a semi-god status in the minds of some 50 million or more professing Christians.

 

 

Rome & Jerusalem

Rome and Jerusalem, cities for the ages.  Cities that the world revolves around, or at least the Western world.  Rome and Jerusalem, spiritual centers of the two most influential religions in the last 2000 years.  No Tale of Two Cities can eclipse the drama these two have lived, the hope these two have inspired, the future these two have beckoned.

Rome erupted onto the world stage about 300 B.C., and quickly clashed with the Jerusalem which had been the spiritual center of the Jewish people for almost a millennium already.  Then in 70A.D. Rome destroyed Jerusalem and its Temple, resulting in the deaths of 1,000,000 Jews and dispersing the rest to the winds.

Rome and Jerusalem, for two millennia the spiritual capitals of the West, have catapulted to the center of Western civilization over the last 100 years, since 1917, in a whole new and more dramatic way.  Moses Hess, spiritual father of Karl Marx, wrote about the two cities in Rome and Jerusalem prefiguring in his influence through Marx  the increase of Jewish influence so much that Yuri Slezkine could call the last 100 years The Jewish Century.

rome-and-jerusalem-hess

Some say the Jewish people, finding a new found power in the Jewish Century, are set on revenge against Rome for sacking Jerusalem in 70AD.

The fact of Jewish influence in the media, publishing, entertainment, education and government, coupled with the penultimate demonizing of perhaps the three greatest inheritors of Rome’s legacy, would lend credence to that.

The three most demonized entities over the last 100 years, the Jewish Century, are Russia, Germany and of course the Roman Catholic Church.  Islam would be right in there but we’ll focus on the 20th Century here.  And what do these three entities have in common?

Russia has been known as The Third Rome for carrying on the legacy of Christendom after the power of the Roman Catholic Church had waned.  Thus Russia was the most demonized country in the world in the 1800s until in 1917 Communism seized control of this once Christian country.

And the World War II axis powers of Germany, Austria and Italy are the precise local of the Holy Roman Empire that began with Charlemagne in 800 AD.  No country has been demonized more than Germany over the last 100 years.  World Wars I and II were both started by the Allies in order to limit Germany’s power.  And it was Judea that declared war against Germany in 1933, six years before historians consider WW II to have started.  A book Germany Must Perish by Theodore Kauffman was lauded in the NY Times before the U.S. entered the war.f

And of course the Roman Catholic Church has been demonized in America like no other religion, so much so that an eminent historian can write a book The New Anti-Catholicism: The Last Acceptable Prejudice.

It is apparent to many that The Jewish State, Israel, is still nurturing ancient animosity against Persia in modern day Iran, Babylon in modern day Iraq, and Assyria in modern day Syria, etcetera.  So is it a stretch to wonder if the Jewish people have not been harboring a similar ancient animosity against Christianity and the civilizations it has birthed?

After all, it was Jesus Christ who prophesied the destruction of Jerusalem by Rome.  That does not mean he wanted it, after all he cried “Jerusalem, Jerusalem…” as recorded in Matthew 23:37.  Nevertheless, Jesus did include a pronouncement of judgment against Israel and Jerusalem and declared her disinheritance at the time.  Jesus flung open the doors of salvation to the gentiles, whom the Jewish people have harbored a distrust and hatred of as can be seen in writings too numerous to imagine.

Yes, Rome and Jerusalem have thrust themselves into the center of world history for ever.  Only time will tell when Jerusalem as well as Rome will each hear the words of Isaiah 40:1-2;

 Comfort, comfort my people, says your God.
 Speak tenderly to Jerusalem,
    and cry to her
that her warfare is ended,
    that her iniquity is pardoned,
that she has received from the Lord‘s hand
    double for all her sins.
