The Theological Basis For Why Israel Should Matter To Christians – S. Douglas Woodward

Anti-Semitism Arises Once Again – What is the Biblical Basis to Oppose it?

It’s quite unusual to find a Christian author or teacher that favors Israel who isn’t also a dispensationalist.  And it is difficult to find a dispensationalist who isn’t also a Christian Zionist.  Nevertheless, in Gerald McDermott, we have an Anglican theologian, Israel scholar, and author who is not dispensational, but who advocates for Jews everywhere, especially those living in the present state of Israel.  McDermott has written extensively on the subject of why Israel should be valued by Christians rather than repudiated for their historical rejection of Jesus as the Messiah. Given the intensifying controversy surrounding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the growing disapproval of the Israeli government by many Christian groups, a timely analysis of the situation appears most warranted.

In this article, I begin by pointing out while McDermott’s advocacy of Israel is welcomed and proceeds from an eschatological basis, his rationale owes as much to “Christian guilt” over our historical treatment of the Jews, as it does to truly biblical commitments for why Israel should matter to Christians.  To be more specific, his theological basis dismisses the dispensational hermeneutic, seeing Dispensationalism as a birthplace for wild prophetic speculation and fundamentalist dogma. McDermott offers an alternative basis for favoring Israel. His viewpoint is gaining traction and thus, it is worthy of consideration. My goal in penning this piece affords only a short analysis of his perspective, it is a relevant way to begin when considering the conventional basis for supporting Israel, commonly identified as Dispensationalism.  Additionally, while affirming Zionism (limited in its proper meaning here, advocating solely for Israel’s right to exist in its historic Middle Eastern land), I will provide a counter-argument to McDermott’s point of view, which comprises my main reason for writing; that is, asserting that Dispensationalism is a respectable, historical, and indeed, the strongest hermeneutic for why Christians should care about Israel.  Obviously, one could write an entire book on the subject.  This I hope to do in the months ahead.  Here I will provide what amounts to no more than a prolog.

Linda Sarsour calls for Muslims to wage ‘jihad’ against Trump – Jordan Schachtel

“Our top priority … is to please Allah, and only Allah.”“OUR TOP PRIORITY … IS TO PLEASE ALLAH, AND ONLY ALLAH.”

Linda Sarsour, a Hamas-tied and prominent Women’s March leader, Islamic supremacist, and anti-Semite, has called for a “jihad” (Islamic holy war) against President Trump.

Addressing the 54th Annual ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) Convention this past weekend, Sarsour delivered a 22-minute screed attacking the Trump administration and called on the Muslim community to unite against the White House.

Sarsour began the speech thanking her “favorite person in this room … Imam Siraj Wahhaj, who has been a mentor, motivator, and encourager of mine.” She does not mention that Wahhaj was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombings.

Remnant Radio Network Episode 26 – The World Is Heating Up – Dr. Mike Spaulding on WWIII, The War On Christianity And Preparing

Join Chris and Ross, along with special guest, Dr. Mike Spaulding of the Soaring Eagle Radio Show and Pastor of Calvary Chapel in Lima, Ohio. We cut through the noise in this week’s news, deliberate where the world is headed, and brainstorm what it means for the fate of Christians.

The powers are lining up in what promises to be widespread war. Saudi Arabia, the U.S., Japan, and Europe are allying, while Russia, Iran, and Syria are putting their own league together. China, and Israel appear on both sides of the equation, while North Korea places itself at the center on this developing axis of conflict.

Donald Trump continues to baffle conservatives. Domestically, he’s making strides, but has he flip-flopped on his promises to the American public about international conflict and trade? We break it all down in the midst of growing censorship and the removal of Bill O’Reilly from Fox News. Conservatives and Christians are facing a growing threat of complete removal with our backs against the wall.

It’s no time to capitulate. Prepare for tough days ahead before it’s TOO LATE.

 

 

 

Hagmann & Hagmann Report – Deep State Strikes Back: Gary Hunt & Paul McGuire – Jon Robberson

Thursday April 20, 2017

Tonight on the Hagmann and Hagmann Report…

7:00pm EDT  Join premiere father/son investigative team, Douglas J Hagmann and Joe Hagmann for news, analysis and commentary live from the Hagmann Studio.

7:30pm EDT  Welcome return guest Mr Gary Hunt.  Gary is a teeth-of-the-beartrap journalist who covers Federal overreach, land grabs and tax payer funded murder since the mass casualty event that immolated the Branch Davidians in Waco, Texas.  Mr Hunt also is a regular contributor at Hagmann Report and his recent articles are available here.

Gary Hunt was arrested by US Federal Marshals at his home in California due to a bench warrant signed by Federal Judge (Oregon) Anna Brown.

The warrant is for a failure to appear in Judge Brown’s court to show cause for Mr Hunt’s refusal to redact the names of FBI confidential informants.

Under most circumstances, publishing the names of “C.I.’s” is a potentially life threatening move; particularly in drug cases where retribution against “snitches” is often dealt with swiftly and permanently.

However these FBI rats testified in a public hearing that they were paid $25,000 apiece in order that they perpetrate being members of the patriot group who occupied the Malheur Wildlife Refuge in Burns, Oregon in late 2015-early 2016.

This occupation and subsequent “stand-off” resulted in the FBI/Oregon State Police MURDER of Robert “LaVoy” Finicum in January of 2016.

If journalists cannot cover public courtroom proceedings, without fear of tax payer funded incarceration, then we may as well fold NBC, CBS, ABC and CNN into one big MSNBC pile and rebrand it Pravda because freedom of the press is dead.
