Blaming the Romans At Easter

Happy Easter! He is risen!

Sometimes it’s human nature to blame others for misfortunes. And this characteristic seems to be quite old. For example, I just finished reading The Decline and Fall Of the Roman Empire by Edward Gibbon. Writes Gibbon: “On the 10th of August, A.D. 70 , the temple of Jerusalem was destroyed by the hands of the Jews themselves, rather than by those of the Romans.” So, that’s one example of blaming others.

Then I came across this interesting article by historian Michael Hoffman, Scapegoating the Romans and Pontius Pilot for Killing Jesus.

Quote:

Rabbi Maimonides stated that Jesus was killed “by the court,” a reference to the rabbinic court: “Yeshu the Christian, who imagined himself the messiah and was killed by the court…” (Rabbi Moses Maimonides, Mishneh Torah: Laws of the King 11:4). 

Maimonides is echoing the halacha (rabbinic law) concerning the execution of Jesus as detailed in the Babylonian Talmud in Sanhderin 43A.

Nowhere does Moses Maimonides, the supreme halachic authority for western Judaics, blame the Romans, as do Popes Benedict XVI and Francis, as well as American conservatives and liberals.

There are literally thousands of “conservative” leaders like the popes of Rome, O’Reilly, Napolitano, Pence, Pompeo, and television and radio “evangelicals” who minimize the role of Orthodox Pharisaic Judaism in the killing of the Son of God, putting the onus on the Romans and Pilate, so as to curry favor with those who exert an inordinate influence on the corporate media.”

End of quote.

Mr. Hoffman’s essay is a very good read to counter the misinformation promoted by Christian Zionism.


Christian Zionism as a Parasitic Ideology

February 16, 2021

February 6, 2021/48 Comments/in Christian ZionismFeatured Articles /by Andrew Joyce, Ph.D.

With Trump out of office, now would be a good time to critically re-examine one of the most remarkable, and ultimately problematic, features of his time as President — the extravagant support he enjoyed from evangelical Christians and the resurgence of Christian Zionism. Back in November, I linked Trump’s popularity among Red State Christians to “the power of personality,” which really only told half the story, and, even then, quite weakly. The mystery of why a huge block of ostensibly conservative voters would back such a materialistic, crass, irreligious, and vulgar man, who has done more than anyone in recent memory to export what E. Michael Jones has so aptly termed “the Gay Disco,” cried out for further explanation. This explanation surely isn’t to be found in his immigration-based reforms, which were abysmal and quickly-reversed failures. The real reason for his enduring and almost-spiritual adulation is, of course, found in Christian Zionism, and Trump’s Presidency, more than any other in recent memory, could be aptly characterized as the most flamboyantly Christian Zionist in living memory.

Dr. Joyce’s article continues here. It’s quite a lengthy analysis of Christian Zionism and how the Zionists promoted Donald Trump to the appeal of war-mongering Christian Zionists.

Don’t forget to read the many comments at the end of the article. The discussion is very good and there’s lots of information to read.


Project: Uncovering Mainline Zionism

November 12, 2020

Source: WHTT

Many leaders of Mainline or Traditional Christian Churches have failed to recognize that two established carriers of Zionism are entrenched in their midst.

It appears almost certain that supporters of the Israel State have quietly bankrolled two international Bible study groups. These teach a subtle Zionism in thousands of churches, many of which are Traditional or Mainline, in contrast to Evangelical or Dispensationally oriented. Each class teaches that Israel is the global hero, having been granted the land through biblical Abraham; this, in part, explains the unwillingness of many Mainline churches to speak out against Zionism from the pulpit.

A Google search of “Kay Arthur, Precepts Ministries, Israel,” produces 126,000 responses. Many of these are about Precepts’ annual Israel junket for 2021. How many of those attending are from mainline churches is not disclosed, but the Arthur family ties to Netanyahu’s Israel are made manifest. Why would any pastor expect Precepts Ministries to teach Traditional Christ-following inside his church?

Even more powerful is mysterious and secretive BSF International (Bible Study Fellowship). It was founded in 1969 and boasts a budget of over $13 million per year.  A Google search for “BSF International, Denver, CO,” returns a map with 32 churches listed with BSF classes. The majority are widely recognized as Christian Zionist’s carriers, but six are Mainline, from Episcopal to Lutheran and Methodist.

But the map of churches is the tip of the iceberg! I have learned there are several BSF courses taught in mainline churches for each one disclosed on the Google search list. For instance, two Mainline churches in my neighborhood (both of which I have visited) support BSF Classes but do not appear on the BSF Web map.

Thousands of BSF classes taught in Mainline churches are not listed, an indication of BSF’s tactical discretion. Both groups are also wise and well enough funded to keep the profile low, and fees modest, mostly workbooks sales. The small cost is one apparent reason why both remain welcome and relatively unnoticed in adopted church homes. Is their generosity made possible by endowments from Israel?

Bottom line: Precept Ministries and BSF are teaching Zionism’s un-Christlike beliefs inside Mainline denominations without acute exposure and resistance! Mainline Zionism (MZ) becomes so well-established that some pastors and leaders dare not root it out without severe membership loss.

Most soft-sell-Zionist doctrine exposes itself, not inside the church, but in thousands of weakly home meetings, unobserved by church leadership. These home meetings are also social events, especially popular among women of the church.

Most dangerous, Precepts and BSF often receive free use of church facilities for organization meetings. Thus, they have access to the membership. Smaller teaching meetings with volunteer “facilitator” leaders is where Zionism thinking takes roots. I and others have learned about Christian Zionism from inside Evangelical Dispensational church classes.

Our prayer is that this will become your project because Christ-loving Mainline leaders are both the victims and the promise.

Trump Outreach: Pandering to Christian Zionism

January 24, 2020
Global Research, July 18, 2019

In Washington on the weekend after the Fourth of July, Israel was praised and Iran was condemned in the strongest terms, with a bit of a call to arms thrown in to prepare the nation for an inevitable war. It might just seem like a normal work week in the nation’s capital, but this time around there was a difference. The rhetoric came from no less than five senior officials in the Trump Administration and the audience consisted of 5,000 cheering members from the Christian Zionist evangelical group called Christians United for Israel (CUFI).

Christian Zionism is not a religion per se, but rather a set of beliefs based on interpretations of specific parts of the Bible – notably the book of Revelations and parts of Ezekiel, Daniel, and Isaiah – that has made the return of the Jews to the Holy Land a precondition for the Second Coming of Christ. The belief that Israel is essential to the process has led to the fusion of Christianity with Zionism, hence the name of the movement. The political significance of this viewpoint is enormous, meaning that a large block of Christians promotes and votes for a non-reality based foreign policy based on a controversial interpretation of the Bible that it embraces with considerable passion.

Jews Demand Obedience, Apologies From Church of England

December 9, 2019

The following is a long review of a new book,“God’s Unfailing Word,” (2019) published by the Church of England, and I like Dr. Andrew Joyce’s review of it.

If it can be said that Europeans are today largely blind to Jewish aggressions, then Christians are among those fumbling around in deepest darkness. Historian Jonas Alexis once remarked that, contrary to older Christian anger at depictions of Jesus and Christianity in the Talmud, no such reactions are evident in relation to modern the Jewish comedy in which “Jesus, Christians and the cross are routinely mocked, even obscenely treated.”[1]

Jewish aggression against Christianity is, of course, nothing new. In the fifth century, edicts had to be pronounced banning Jews from burning and desecrating crosses, and Socrates Scholasticus reported in Historia Ecclesiastica that Jews had taken a Christian boy during Purim and crucified him.[2] In his Princeton-published Reckless Rites: Purim and the Legacy of Jewish Violence (2006), Elliott Horowitz pointed out multiple cases of Jews urinating on, and otherwise exposing their genitals to, crosses from 12th-century Germany and 13th-century England.[3] Even today, Daniel Rossing, a former advisor on Christian affairs to Israel’s religious Affairs Ministry, has commented on anti-Christian violence in Israel, which peaks during Purim. “I know Christians who lock themselves indoors during the entire Purim holiday,” he says. And yet, while Christians are spat upon and assaulted in Israel, and mocked and obscenely treated in the [Christian] Diaspora, the majority of Christians remain among the most guilt-ridden and philosemitic of Europeans, applauding Zionist wars that kill their sons, and lauding a people that has done more than any other to overturn traditional Christian moral values. It is one of the most glaring contradictions in this age of contradictions.

Israeli Partisans Use Name Calling To Squelch Free Speech

October 30, 2019

Original source:

“Anti-Zionism” is now being equated to “Anti-Semitism” by Israeli partisans as well by the U.S. State Department. A recent international campaign orchestrated by four Zionist organizations, including the ADL, tried to prevent Alison Weir of If Americans Knew from speaking on the subject,  “Uncovered, Israel’s Occupation of Palestine,” (link to talk) at a community college in Fresno, CA by accusing her of being an “Anti-Semite.” Local sponsor GV Wire did not back down and said they believed in free speech and would even sponsor another event featuring a supporter of Israel. The event went off with no protesters present as promised by the Israeli partisans. Fresno members of We Hold These Truths were there to support Alison Weir with signs like “No More Wars For Israel.” Ms. Weir remarked that the campaign to stop her from speaking was the most intense that she has witnessed to date.  This 21-minute podcast reveals some interesting insights into the event and her attackers who appear to be becoming desperate in their attempts to prevent the truth of the Israeli occupation from being broadcast.
