Those interested in Israel and Jews should Google "Do Christian Zionist Authors Push Their Agenda Through Lies and Plagiarism?" (Warning: Christian Zionists will not be provided with shock absorbers!)

Christian Zionism, Wikipedia

"The Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem (Catholic), the Syrian Orthodox Patriarchate of Jerusalem, the Episcopal Church in Jerusalem and the Middle East and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land, have recently joined together in order to proclaim and to publish the Jerusalem Declaration on Christian Zionism (August 22, 2006)...

..This Declaration rejects Christian Zionism for substituting a political-military program in place of the teachings of Jesus Christ. The statement is very critical of Christian Zionism because it provides a worldview where the Gospel is identified with the ideology of empire, colonialism and militarism."

"The remnant will return, the remnant of Jacob,
To the mighty God." (Isaiah 10:21)

It says they will return to the LORD, not just that they will return to their land. The ones in Israel, now, are not showing that they have returned to the LORD by obeying Jesus their Messiah. So, returning to only to their land would be a false return, not what is prophesied.

So, it is anti-semitic to push for Jews to have their land, if they are not required to first return to the LORD.

Also, it is prophesied that Egypt and Assyria will return to the LORD > Isaiah 19:21-25.

\\It involves some dispensational Protestants who side with nonchristian Israelis against the neighboring Palestinians, many of whom are Orthodox or Catholic Christians. I could not support that.
---Catholicus on 6/8/12\\

The book BLOOD BROTHERS describes how Christian Palestinians were oppressed by the Zionists.

Jed, being against Zionism is not necessarily antisemitic. Both Zionism and antisemitism are forms of racism.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Catholicus,

Basically, Christian Zionism is a belief among some Christians that the return of the Jews to the Holy Land, and the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, is in accordance with Biblical prophecy.

there a many spin-offs from there.

In the meantime I read a little about Christian Zionism. It involves some dispensational Protestants who side with nonchristian Israelis against the neighboring Palestinians, many of whom are Orthodox or Catholic Christians. I could not support that.

I strongly believe this blog was created in order for a chance to express anti-semitism. We'll see how it pans out.

Catholicus, Christian Zionism means that Jews in the Middle East are God's pet people, even though if they lived anywhere else, they would be called "lost."

Glory to Jesus Christ!

What is Christian Zionism anyway?
---Catholicus on 6/8/12


"The Reformed Church in America at its 2004 General Synod found the ideology of Christian Zionism "and the extreme form of dispensationalism that undergirds it to be a distortion of the biblical message noting the impediment it represents to achieving a just peace in Israel/Palestine." Wikipedia

What's "it"?

You didn't give an antecedent of the pronoun, and we're not allowed to title our own blogs.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
