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?

Jim Bakker Begs You to Buy His Survival Food so your Grandkids Don’t Cry.

November 18, 2017

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 […]

After 2,000 Years Evangelicals Should Have Come Up with a Better God.

September 15, 2017

When you look at the evangelical’s God, you have to ask: Is that the best we can do? With all the invention, discovery and intellectual advances since the birth of Christ, you would have thought they could have come up with a better model. The God of the evangelicals is no more than an old brick […]

Ignorance: A Value Held Dear by many Americans.

April 8, 2017

I used to frequent a deli located near a roadside, commuter bus stop. Once, while idly waiting for my order, I thumbed an accordion bus schedule taken from a holder by the register. The cashier looked over at me and said she hoped I wouldn’t ask her when the next bus was, as she had […]

Really? – 2.4.17.

February 4, 2017

Trump says that Dodd-Frank has to be repealed because his friends can’t get loans. Two thoughts: One, there’s plenty of cash available for well-rated businesses. Two, Trump doesn’t have any friends. Fox’s Jesse Watters says,“It’s my opinion that liberals on college campuses now resemble Islamist mobs”. Other conservatives scorn college liberals as ‘safe space’ seeking ‘snowflakes’. They should […]

Religion Poisons Everything. Even Atheism.

December 29, 2016

The is nothing more annoying than a debate between an atheist and a true believer. I’m an atheist, and I can feel within myself the smug and poisonous intellectual superiority of being a ‘critical thinker’: a dispassionate observer of the world. Not for me the magic of superstition, the prison of rote, the mindless surrender of intellect […]

Is Religion a Force for Evil?

December 11, 2016

Bible thumpers claim that without God there is no morality. Atheists argue that religion is a perversion that inspires its adherents to evil deeds. Is either side right? No. There are good people, and there are bad people. Some of whom are religious and some of whom are not. The only difference is that bad religious folk add […]

Creation Science Is an Oxymoron

December 7, 2016

“Religion is a culture of faith; science is a culture of doubt.” ― Richard Feynman Biblical creationists believe that the Bible is the inerrant word of God. And as such proves that God created man and all flora and fauna in their current form. What an exercise in magical thinking. However, it is not my […]
