Religion

Pastor Robert Jeffress is a prominent evangelical. He was on hand to lead prayers at the opening of the American Embassy in Jerusalem. His presence illustrates an intrinsic and callous sadism of evangelical philosophy. Especially when it comes to their eschatology — or their understanding of end times.

Let me explain. Evangelicals believe that for the second coming of Christ to occur, Jews must reclaim their biblical lands — comprising Israel and the Palestinian territories, with an undivided Jerusalem as their capital.

Evangelicals have therefore been supportive of the Conservative/Orthodox end of Israel’s political spectrum. These folks, currently led by Bibi Netanyahu, are gung-ho for settlements and the ‘one state’ solution, which meets evangelical religiogeographic needs

With this, Evangelicals have come full circle in their support of Jews. For most of America’s existence anti-semitism was the order of the day. Jews were considered Christ’s murderers. And for two millennia they represented to Christians a fifth column undermining societies with banking cabals and more recently with shady globalist groups.

This change in religious relationships has also been exhibited by the Catholic Church. However, while Catholics, whose beliefs do not demand a biblical reconstruction of the Jewish nation, has embraced a more collegial relationship with all religions, evangelicals have shown a newfound warmth solely for Jews.

However, before Jews celebrate this new comity, they should dig into the evangelicals’ motivations. And there they will find some dark undercurrents. Jeffress himself has made no secret of it. Back in 2010, he said this on the Trinity Broadcast Network:

“Islam is wrong. It is a heresy from the pit of hell. Mormonism is wrong. It is a heresy from the pit of hell.”

He added: “Judaism — you can’t be saved being a Jew. You know who said that, by the way? The three greatest Jews in the New Testament: Peter, Paul and Jesus Christ. They all said Judaism won’t do it. It’s faith in Jesus Christ.”

In Jeffress’ theology, you have the Christian faithful on one side (the winners) and everyone else on the other side (the losers). Come the Day of Judgment, the Jews will find themselves as discarded as a Trump wife. They will be on the same down escalator as all ‘mongrel’ religious affiliates. Today evangelicals may support Jews as warriors against Islamic terrorism, but tomorrow they believe Their God will consign those same Jews and Islamic terrorists to a communal, eternal fiery pit.

With friends like these who needs enemies?

Caitlyn Jenner Lectures the British Parliament on Transgenderism. How We Got Here.

May 10, 2018

Sex, sexuality and gender identity are all matters of supreme interest and intense fear. How much of the fear is learned behavior, and how much is innate, a more knowledgeable mind than mine will have to decide. Regardless, the history of religion would be incomplete without a lot of time devoted to the subject. Sometimes, as with […]

Evangelicals Rip Up the Bible’s Rules to Promote a Porn Star Loving President.

March 10, 2018

I was sent away to religious schools when I was young. There was some form of service every day. Divinity was a mandatory class. And during school breaks, I was deposited once weekly at the local church for a maintenance dose of God, His Son, and the Holy Spirit. I mention this only to establish that, while the […]

How Do Evangelicals Get from Jesus to Trump?

January 29, 2018

Why do evangelicals want bakers to be able to deny gay couples wedding cake? They say it is their ‘sincerely held religious belief’. And as justification, they point to biblical verses saying homosexuals are an abomination — or words to that effect. But the same book has laundry lists of other things that are abominations and deserve punishment […]

The Founders’ Dream Became an American Nightmare.

January 18, 2018

America has become everything the Founders hated. Their vision of the new nation was a meritocracy where by dint of pluck and hard work any American could get ahead. In their creation, the citizenry would escape the medieval superstitions of a state religion working in lockstep with an autocratic government. Americans themselves would decide on who would […]

Anti-gay Politician Will Serve a Minimum of 10 Years for Sex Trafficking a Teenage Boy.

November 19, 2017

Ralph Shortey was a State Senator from Oklahoma. As a Republican, he ran proudly as a ‘family values’ candidate — adding the usual homophobic vitriol to the stew. In the state Senate, he voted on the typical anti-gay nonsense, as well the standard anti-immigrant, pro-gun measures. So far a run-of-the-mill conservative in the Bible Belt. […]

L. Ron Hubbard said: “You don’t get rich writing science fiction, If you want to get rich, you start a religion”. And then he founded Scientology and proved it. But if you lack the imagination to start a new religion, you can just take an existing one and pervert it. Jim Bakker, one of God’s leading grifters […]
