In our Riposte section, we gave you the opportunity to ask tough and sensible questions. Many of you did.



God

From our RIPOSTE section

Question #1: Isn’t God an unknowable essence?

Answer #1: No.

There may be things about God that are mysteries to us, just like there may be things about women that are plain mysteries to men; but that doesn’t prevent men from knowing their wives.

God Himself wants us to know Him.

“Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.” Jeremiah 9: 23-24

“This is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.” John 17:3

God wants us so much to know Him that He became flesh and dwelt amongst us in the person of Jesus Christ.

“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” John 1:14

You can know God. Click here. Then He’ll come and make His abode with you.

“My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.” John 14:23

Question #2: To be consistent in your article The Trinity Doctrine Is Not In The Bible, if you conclude that the Trinity is not part of the Godhead, thus a lie, and that the Holy Spirit is not a person nor a sentient being, but is a thing, then you should change your own use of “he” to “it”, especially as said doctrine destroys the true Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Answer #2: First, the fact that mainstream Christianity does not adhere to the truth that the Holy Spirit is not God and does not form a Trinity with the Father and the Son in no way destroys the gospel of Jesus Christ, which is salvation in Christ alone – a totally separate disputation. You are simply forcing one onto the other in order to make a false point.

Second, we never concluded that the Holy Spirit was not sentient and that He was a Thing. Your argument of He or It is absurd. Why?

a. God is not a person either, in the sense that we understand a person to be a human. He is God. A Spirit. So which pronoun would you use for HIM?

“God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship Him in spirit and in truth.” John 4:24

b. Angels are not persons either. They’re spirits, neither male nor female – with wings, to boot. So which pronoun would use to describe one? He, She, or It?

“At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven.” Matthew 22:30

Consequently, we’ll stick with He for the Holy Ghost, because the Power that He carries is to be respected as Christ succinctly pointed out.

“And everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him.” Luke 12:10

Since when can one blaspheme against an It or a Thing? The Holy Spirit is the one who guarantees our eternal inheritance, and a “Thing” is incapable of doing so.

“…the Holy Spirit of promise, who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory.” Ephesians 1:14

“And do not bring sorrow to God’s Holy Spirit by the way you live. Remember, he has identified you as his own, guaranteeing that you will be saved on the day of redemption.” Ephesians 4:3

Therefore you better be careful AND respectful.

“‘Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit…’ And as he heard these words, Ananias fell down and breathed his last…” Acts 5:3-5


Hearing God

From our RIPOSTE section

Question: In many of your articles you talk about hearing the voice of God, or that God would “show us” how to go about doing a certain thing. How do you hear God’s voice?

Answer: He tugs your heart gently and repeatedly until His will permeates your spirit – that is if you’re truly open to hearing Him. For His will to really permeate you, you have to be faithful in applying His commandments. After all, if you can’t be obedient to His written word, how will you be obedient to hearing His voice?

The more you study the bible, the more the Holy Spirit helps you cleave to the truth. The more you live out God’s commandments, the more sensitive you become to His guidance and His voice, the more cleansed your mind, the more attuned your soul, and the more fruitful your work.

Delve in our CHURCH REFORM series, which will get you on the right track to follow His ways, read the bible, spend time in prayer, and constantly apply what you learn. Then His voice will become as clear as a bell to your soul. We can confidently say, “We know!”


The Kingdom Of God

From our RIPOSTE section

Question #1: If the Kingdom of God was on Earth right now, wouldn’t the King take care of so many atrocious people himself? Don’t the Scriptures say that He would rule them with an iron rod? Jesus himself told Pilate that if His Kingdom was of this world more than twelve legions of angels would be fighting for Him. So now that His Kingdom is finally established, nothing happens and sin and injustice run rampant?

Answer #1: Jesus left us Christians in charge. WE are the salt of the earth. WE are supposed to take care of these problems by doing what God commanded, and by inspiring and helping people everywhere to look up to God for solutions.

“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father. Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.” John 14:12-14

As to “Jesus ruling with an iron rod,” that verse is referring to how Jesus keeps His people in line, away from sins. Read When Bad Things Happen to see how He does it.

In reference to the Kingdom of God and Pilate question, here’s Jesus:

“When asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, ‘The kingdom of God will not come with observable signs. Nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is within you.’ ” Luke 17:20,21

You are thinking like the Judahites of Old who wanted a military-style Kingdom. DON’T. God’s Kingdom is of the Spirit, which first and foremost changes the sinful nature of man and in turn allows positive change to take place.

Last, you say that sin is running rampant.

It is because:

1) many Christians have been poisoned with the heretical Rapture Doctrine, and consequently have given up on being the salt of the earth;

“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.” Matthew 5:13

2) the church has been hijacked by unscrupulous men peddling false dogmas that are contrary to the Lord’s commands;

“There will be men who abandon the true faith and allow themselves to be spiritually seduced by teachings of the devil, teachings given by men who are lying hypocrites, whose consciences are as dead as seared flesh.” 1 Timothy 4:1,2

3) many refuse to go through the narrow door that leads to life;

“But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” Matthew 7:14

4) the weed is growing with the wheat.

“Jesus said, ‘if you pull the weeds now, you might uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.’” Matthew 13: 29,20

When is the harvest? Read Where Is Satan Now?

Question #2: When did the Kingdom of God on earth as stated by Jesus start?

Answer #2: It started with the birth of our Lord, who was born King.

“Where is the one who has been born king of the Judahites? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.” Matthew 2:2

His dominion throughout the earth began spreading “officially” or “widely” on Pentecost in 30 AD. However, Jesus waited 40 years for the disobedient Hebrews to accept Him. Then, in 70 AD, He shut down the Old Covenant and overthrew Satan as god of this world, thus solidifying Himself as sole potentate.

“To Him be dominion forever and ever. Amen.” 1 Peter 5:11

His dominion is currently in effect. See Where Is Satan Now?

Question #3: a. Jesus expressly said that His kingdom was not of this world.

b. When the Devil tempted Christ and told him to bow to him in order to rule the kingdoms of the world, Jesus refused the kingdoms. So why would Jesus want to establish his kingdom on earth when he refused to take it from the Devil?

c. This World is not fixable. All we have is faith and prayer. I do try to make myself perfect which is vain.

Answer #3: a. Jesus’s Kingdom may not be OF this world, but He came to establish it IN this world.

“From that time Jesus began to preach and say, ‘Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.’” Matthew 4:17

b. Jesus did not come to get anything from Satan, he came to destroy his works.

“The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil.” 1 John 3:8

So why would Jesus accept anything from him? After he defeated the devil, His Heavenly Father gave Him everything.

“For God ‘has put everything under his feet.’” 1 Corinthians 15:27

c. God’s desire for us in this world is to do His will, which is to do His business until He returns.

“Occupy until I come.” Luke 19:13

And if this world is not fixable, then Jesus died for nothing. Of what use are your faith and prayers then?

Jesus came to fix mankind, so the world can in turn be fixed. Are you fixed? You don’t think you’re perfect?

“Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” Matthew 5: 48

If you’re not working toward perfection, then you’re NOT a Christian. Jesus commanded us to be perfect, which won’t happen overnight: it’s a lifetime endeavor.

As perfection takes hold, each man’s world in turn becomes perfect through the workings of Christ in our lives. And without said PERFECTION, we will not inherit the truly new PERFECT earth that Jesus will bring forth, because only PERFECT beings can inhabit a PERFECT place.

“Without holiness no one will see the Lord.” Hebrews 12: 14

“Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away…” Revelation 21:1

“Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.” Matthew 5:5

Question #4: “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father. Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.” John 14:12-14

In light of what Jesus said, what are these greater works of the Kingdom?

Answer #4: Each individual must go to God and find out the works he must do for the kingdom. However, even a cursory look would show how Jesus’s disciples “turned the world upside down” (Acts 17:6), and how Christians afterwards greatly managed to change the world from the time Jesus was around to today.

Question #5: What does the following verse mean:

“Truly I tell you, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom.” Matthew 16:28

Answer #5: Christ’s Kingdom was fully established in 70 AD, after He shut down the Old Covenant.

“By calling this covenant ‘new,’ he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and outdated will soon disappear.” Hebrew 8:13

Once the Old Covenant disappeared and Satan was captured and thrown into the Abyss, Christ fully came into His Kingdom, since previously Satan was god of this world – no more.

“The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers…” 2 Corinthians 4:4

Therefore, from 30 AD, when Christ uttered these words, to 70 AD, some did not taste death and witnessed the full establishment of Christ’s New Covenant, along with the end of Satan’s dominion and the termination of the Old Covenant.


Fear God

From our RIPOSTE section

Question: On one hand the bible says to fear God, and on the other it says that perfect love has no fear. Isn’t that a contradiction?

Answer: No, it’s not a contradiction because you did not place those verses in context.

1) “Fear God and keep his commandments.” Ecclesiastes 12:13

The reason we should fear God is because when we disobey His commandments the consequences will surely come, just like when a disobedient child is punished by a parent. Therefore, that fear is actually an expectation of God’s judgment of our disobedience. And while we’re still alive, His judgment is not geared towards destroying us, but towards correcting us so that we may experience life to the fullest.

“The fear of the LORD leads to life, So that one may sleep satisfied, untouched by evil.” Proverbs 19:13

2) “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love… This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands.” 1 John 4:18, 5:2

Perfect love knows no fear because perfect love has been accomplished following God’s commandments. Once that stage of perfection is achieved, there is no more fear to contend with; and whatever unpleasant things may come in our lives will be accepted grounded in faith and not in fear, even when those unpleasant things come not because of any command we may have broken. Many times God is simply testing us to make us better still, since only the truly perfected ones will inherit the perfect new world that Jesus will create at the end of time.

“Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” James 1: 2-4


Sex

From our RIPOSTE section

Question #1: Why is fornication a sin against one’s own body?

Answer #1: Once you become a Christian, it is not just your soul that is given to God but your body as well.

God intended sex for husband and wife to produce children, itself a great spiritual act whereby God is working with mankind to fill the earth. However, fornication is sex outside these God-given parameters.

By fornicating, itself a selfish pleasure, the body is thus defiled, because the commandment of God regarding sex is made of no effect and DEBASED (or defiled), which in turn defiles the body that commits it.

There’s no other circumstance where one uses his whole body to sin thus.

“I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind…” Romans 12:1-2

Question #2: Does the Greek word porneia really translate as fornication? Because some sources do translate it as prostitution, as in sex for money.

If so, isn’t Matthew 19:9 wrong when it says, “Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

Shouldn’t it be “except it be for prostitution”?

Answer #2: The Greek word porneia derives from porneno, which has a literal meaning of “indulging lust,” and which is also the root word for the English word porno. So it’s not just sex for money, though it is translated as both “fornication” and “harlotry.”

Fornication (i.e., playing the harlot) is the indulgence of unlawful lust for selfish pleasure, whereas harlotry or prostitution is the indulgence of unlawful lust for money. Their common core is the indulgence of lust. See Of Fornication, Divorce, And Adultery.

Consequently, Matthew 19:9 is perfectly translated as is. See some real Bad Translation.

Question #3: a) Does sex between two virgins living together create a marriage?

b) Doesn’t consensual sex equal marriage, regardless of the situation, and that while sometimes there is a marriage covenant, the covenant ends at the consummation and then it’s just a marriage?

Answer #3: a) Did those two virgins enter into a marriage covenant with each other? Unless it’s marriage, it’s a sin. And did they get their fathers’ blessings?

“Thus says the Lord of hosts: Because you have obeyed the command of Jonadab your father and kept all his precepts and done all that he commanded you, therefore thus says the Lord of hosts: Jonadab the son of Rechab shall never lack a man to stand before me.” Jeremiah 35:18,19

Besides, would you like it if a boy shacked up with your daughter for his personal pleasure as if she were a whore?

b) Consensual sex is still fornication, a sin. Sex in and of itself is NOT marriage.

Biblical Marriage is a covenant between a man and a woman, who join as one for the purpose of making children, with God-assigned authorities, the parents on both sides, agreeing to the union of their offspring.

Besides, let’s check Exodus 22:16,17:

“If a man seduces a virgin who is not pledged to be married and sleeps with her, he must pay the bride-price, and she shall be his wife.  If her father absolutely refuses to give her to him, he must still pay the bride-price for virgins.”

In that situation sex occurred, but when the father refused to give her daughter to that particular man, marriage did not materialize; and she did not run away and married him without her father’s approval either.

See The Biblical Marriage Blueprint.

Question #4: Matthew 5:32 says that, “Whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causes her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced commits adultery.”

Shouldn’t we construe that the cause of fornication in that passage is the same as the cause of fornication in this Deuteronomy 22 passage:

23 If a man happens to meet in a town a virgin pledged to be married and he sleeps with her, 24 you shall take both of them to the gate of that town and stone them to death—the young woman because she was in a town and did not scream for help, and the man because he violated another man’s wife. You must purge the evil from among you.

In other words, the only time a man can put away his woman is when she’s betrothed and commits sexual immorality or fornication, and not when she’s actually married. Besides, that would help stem the tide in our divorce-obsessed culture.

Answer #4: You’re wrong. It’s NOT the only time.

First, Jesus said, “except for fornication.” Period. He didn’t say, “except for fornication during betrothal.”

“Do not add to his words, lest he rebuke you and you be found a liar.” Proverbs 30:6

You’re the one who added “betrothal” by making strange connections with unrelated biblical circumstances.

Second, that Deuteronomy passage is very well defined with a specific situation, as opposed to the passage in Matthew which doesn’t confirm a Deuteronomy-type circumstance.

Third, you are insinuating that the Deuteronomy passage is the only instance of fornication within a “marriage” context that can happen. Wrong.

“It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and of a kind that even pagans do not tolerate: A man is sleeping with his father’s wife.” 1 Corinthians 5:1  

Paul was very explicit in that verse, and just because the Matthew verse you quoted is not as categorical doesn’t automatically make it Deuteronomy-like. If it were, Jesus would have made it very clear.

Arbitrarily connecting bible verses because you want to stem the divorce tide is not the way to go. The only way is to obey God’s commandments and apply His principles. See Sex and The Christian.

And finally fourth, you totally neglected this other passage from Deuteronomy 22: 13-21:

“If a man takes a wife and, after sleeping with her, dislikes her and slanders her and gives her a bad name, saying, “I married this woman, but when I approached her, I did not find proof of her virginity,” then the young woman’s father and mother shall bring to the town elders at the gate proof that she was a virgin…

“If, however, the charge is true and no proof of the young woman’s virginity can be found, she shall be brought to the door of her father’s house and there the men of her town shall stone her to death. She has done an outrageous thing in Israel by being promiscuous while still in her father’s house. You must purge the evil from among you.”

That woman, who committed fornication while betrothed, ended up fully married when she was discovered, and the law demanded that she be executed.

However, Jesus removed the death penalty from that law when He told the accusers of the adulteress: “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” (John 8:7)

Still, He commanded the adulteress in John 8:11 to “go and sin no more (i.e., go and cut off the unlawful relationship).” And in the case of a married woman who fornicates, instead of death He said “to put her away, for the cause of fornication (Matthew 5:32).”

Consequently, now, instead of the death penalty, they get a chance to repent, sin no more, and cut off their unlawful relationships as the new way of purging evil, because evil still needs to be expurgated before facing God on judgment day.

“If your right hand makes you stumble, cut it off and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to go into hell.” Matthew 5:30

See Of Fornication, Divorce, And Adultery.

Question #5: I always understood that according to the bible if a woman has committed fornication (i.e., have had sex) with another man, that alone constitutes marriage.

Answer #5: Fornication is distinct from the sexual act within a marriage covenant. Its literal meaning is to play the harlot (i.e., having sex here and there with no responsibility and no commitment, just for the selfish pleasure of it). Biblical verses after biblical verses prove that. See Of Fornication, Divorce and Adultery.

Marriage takes place when two people, man and woman, enter into a marriage covenant, with parents on both sides agreeing to their siblings being joined as one. Please read The Biblical Marriage Blueprint.

With your understanding, you make the marriage Covenant as ordained by God of no effect. Biblical marriage is sealed with the first copulation of the married couple, but is NOT just the sex. It is a COVENANT whose main goal is to produce children. Otherwise, according to your definition, rape would also be considered marriage.


Religion

From our RIPOSTE section

Question: Isn’t religion the bane of human existence?

Answer: Religion, as some interpret and use it, may be. However, a personal relationship with God through Christ Jesus is not. It’s the salvation and redemption of man’s soul.

Religion is man-made with earthly rules and agendas. A relationship with Christ is not. They are two different concepts.

Besides, imagine a world without Christian love and compassion. That would be the bane of human existence.


Bible Discrepancies

From our RIPOSTE section

Question: Could there be manipulation at the root of some discrepancies in published bibles?

Answer: Yes, though it’s limited to the word Jew.

In all currently published bibles the word Jew is what is printed, instead of Judahite or Judean as it should be. However, in the 1985 New King James version, published by Thomas Nelson, Inc., there’s a glaring discrepancy:

“…the Judeans, who both killed the Lord Jesus and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they do not please God and are contrary to all men.” 1 Thessalonians 2:15

That’s the only place in that version where the word Ioudaios is rightly translated as Judean instead of the conspicuous word Jew.

Which prompts the following questions:

Did Jews bribe Thomas Nelson, Inc. to do it? If so, what did they stand to gain? And do the editors at Thomas Nelson, Inc. actually know that the word Jew is NOT in the bible?

All in all, it simply is deliberate manipulation. Because, simply put, the same Greek word Ioudaios is oddly translated two different ways in that version.

And the only place where it’s different is in that very uncomfortable and crucial verse where we are being led, like sheep to the slaughter, to envisage “Jews” (of today, of course) as not contrary to all men and not the killers of our Lord; while the “Judeans,” of the tribe of Judah, were the actual contrary ones who crucified the Lord and persecuted Christians.

Still, in other verses where the word Jew is maintained throughout, the Talmudic Rabbinists (aka Fake Hebrews or Jews) get to be seen as the Hebrews of old – a misappropriated appellation that is full of benefits for them, including the theft of Palestine to create modern-day Israel.

Consequently, yes, the editors at Thomas Nelson, Inc. do know that the Word Jew is NOT in the Bible, and yet they keep using it.

See The Word Jew Is Not In The Bible.


The Clergy

From our RIPOSTE section

Question: Where did the Christian clergy get their fancy ecclesiastical titles from? Obviously not from the bible.

Answer: Correct. They did not get them from the bible.

Contrary to the Lord’s command, so-called “church leaders” have given themselves fancy titles like Reverend, Monsignor, Pope, and Pastor.

Reverend comes from the word Revere, meaning Worship; Monsignor is from the Italian word Monsignore, meaning My Lord; Pope is from the Greek word Pappas, meaning Father; and finally Pastor comes from the Latin Pastor, meaning Shepherd.

“The Lord is my Shepherd.” Psalm 23:1

Pride and arrogance could not be any clearer. Jesus called His disciples to be servants. Period.

“Whoever would be great among you must be your servant.” Matthew 20:26

See Of Leaders and Servants in the Church.


Unclean Food

From our RIPOSTE section

Question: Is a Christian allowed to eat food deemed unclean by the bible?

Answer: If your conscience reproaches you, don’t eat them.

After the fall, God gave all live animals as food to man.

“Everything that lives and moves about will be food for you. Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything.” Genesis 9:3-4

Later on, many of these animals were declared ceremonially unclean by God in Leviticus 11 and were not to be consumed by the ancient Hebrews.

“It is ceremonially unclean for you.” Leviticus 11:4

However, when Jesus walked the earth, He said the following:

“Don’t you see that nothing that enters a person from the outside can defile them? For it doesn’t go into their heart but into their stomach, and then out of the body.” Mark 7:18-19

Which prompted the author of the book of Mark to say this:

“(In saying this, Jesus declared all foods clean.)” Mark 7:19

What the author meant was that all clean foods were still clean even after one ate “without the ceremonial washing of one’s hands,” which was the actual context.

“Why don’t your disciples live according to the tradition of the elders instead of eating their food with defiled hands?” Mark 7:5

Some also use the Apostle Peter’s vision to declare the same, that all foods are clean. Acts 10:

About noon the following day as they were on their journey and approaching the city, Peter went up on the roof to pray. 10 He became hungry and wanted something to eat, and while the meal was being prepared, he fell into a trance. 11 He saw heaven opened and something like a large sheet being let down to earth by its four corners. 12 It contained all kinds of four-footed animals, as well as reptiles and birds. 13 Then a voice told him, “Get up, Peter. Kill and eat.”

14 “Surely not, Lord!” Peter replied. “I have never eaten anything impure or unclean.”

15 The voice spoke to him a second time, “Do not call anything impure that God has made clean.”

16 This happened three times, and immediately the sheet was taken back to heaven.

Unfortunately, Peter’s vision, like all symbolic dreams and visions, was not literally about food. After meditating, Peter understood what God was trying to tell him.

Peter went inside and found a large gathering of people. He said to them: ‘You are well aware that it is against our law for a Judahite to associate with or visit a Gentile. God has shown me that I should not call anyone impure or unclean.'” Acts 10:27,28

What then?

Let’s recap.

In the beginning, God gave all animals as food to us. He then restricted many of them as “ceremonially unclean” in Leviticus. Subsequently, those Old Covenant “ceremonies” became defunct with the advent of Christ’s New Covenant. However, there’s nothing in the New Testament that specifically revokes the Old Testament ordinances on eating unclean food.

Yet, as Christ succinctly put it, it is not what one eats that defiles a man.

“’What comes out of a person is what defiles them. For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and defile a person.’” Mark 7:20-23

Consequently, as to unclean food it truly becomes a question of necessity or of conscience.

“Holding faith, and a good conscience.” 1 Timothy 1:19

“‘All things are permissible for me, but not everything is beneficial. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be mastered by anything. Food for the stomach and the stomach for food, but God will destroy them both.” 1 Corinthians 6:12,13


Chosen Ones

From our RIPOSTE section

Question #1: Why do many Christians fall on their knees to Israel in respect for the so called “God’s Chosen”?

Correct me if I am wrong. Those who believe in Jesus as the son of God are now “God’s Chosen.” I can’t understand why Christians are not taught this. Besides, Jesus made it quite clear in Matthew 21:43.

“The kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people who will bring forth the fruits thereof.” Matthew 21:43

Answer #1: You’re absolutely right.

Figuratively, many “Christians” do fall on their knees in respect to converted Jews and Israel, even though they are taught that Christians are the new chosen people – chosen to love, to do good, and to spread peace.

“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood.” 1 Peter 2:9

At the same time, they are also taught by unscrupulous preachers that God has two covenants simultaneously at play, one for Christians and another one for Jews, never quoting the truth of the bible that says quite the opposite.

“By calling this covenant new, he has made the first one obsolete and what is obsolete is outdated.” Hebrews 8:13

In addition, those preachers don’t teach their congregations that Jews today are not the Hebrews of the Bible, that the Old Covenant was never for those who converted but for those of Hebraic blood only, that all Hebrews are irrevocably dead, and that the word Jew is not even in the bible.

That’s what we call religious Bully-Pulpitism, a method by which Christians are brainwashed to their own detriment. See also The Chosen People Syndrome.

Question #2: Are you claiming that the Old Covenant was only with the chosen ethnic Hebrews, while the non-ethnics stood by and watched in exclusion?

God’s covenants have never had ethnic dependencies. From the very beginning, faith and obedience have been the sole covenant requisites.

Answer #2: The purpose of the Old Covenant with the ancient Hebrews (mind you) was to bring forth the Messiah, who Himself was a pure Hebrew of the tribe of Judah. Therefore, the Old Covenant was purely ethnic-centered.

“The LORD said to Moses and Aaron, ‘These are the regulations for the Passover meal: No foreigner may eat it.’ ” Exodus 12:43

However, proselytism within the Old Covenant was allowed and was different from the Covenant itself. That’s why Jesus told the converted Samaritans, who also worshiped Jehovah just like the Hebrews:

“You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from Judah.” John 4:22

What Jesus meant was that Salvation would come about and bear fruit out of the Old Covenant, with Jesus Himself, a pure Judahite Hebrew, being the Salvation.

Now with the New Covenant things are totally different. It’s no longer ethnic-centered.

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to EVERYONE WHO BELIEVES: first to the Judahite, then to the Gentile.” Romans 1:16

The purpose of the New Covenant is to prepare and deliver a new chosen people throughout all the nations of the earth, who will become a spiritual bride for the Messiah.

“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood.” 1 Peter 2:9

“And in your seed [Jesus] all the families of the earth shall be blessed…” Genesis 26: 4

“Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife has made herself ready.” Revelation 19:7-9

In other words, the Old Covenant brought forth the Groom, while the New will bring forth the Bride.

Question #3: Israel is mentioned many times in the New Testament. Since ancient Israel no longer existed, why was the word Israel used?

Answer #3: In the context of the New Testament, Israel does not refer to the Israel of today nor to the ancient Kingdom of Israel, but to the promise that God made to Jacob, whom God renamed Israel, and which promise was fulfilled in the person of Jesus.

“In you and in your seed shall all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” Genesis 28:14

That seed was to be Jesus the Messiah. In addition, said promise was similar to the one God made to Jacob/Israel’s father, Abraham.

“Now the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. He does not say, ‘And to seeds,’ as referring to many, but rather to one, ‘And to your seed,’ that is, Christ.” Galatians 3:16

Further, Judah was Jacob/Israel’s son and the tribe Jesus was born in. So Israel was interchangeable with Judah, since Judah was Israel’s son by whom the promise was fulfilled.

It’s somewhat not unlike Jesus and His Father who are one and the same. Remember when Philip asked to see the Father, and Jesus answered:

“Have I been so long with you, and yet you have not come to know Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how can you say, ‘Show us the Father?” John 8:9

Question #4: What’s the difference between a covenant and a contract?

Answer #4: A contract is signed with ink (or a handshake), whereas a covenant is signed with blood. In the Old Testament, the blood of a lamb had to be spilled once a year by the ancient Hebrews, whereas in the New Testament the blood of Jesus Christ was spilled once and for all for the New Alliance.

Today, there’s only one covenant whereby blood is still spilled: marriage. See Sex and the Christian.


Should Israel Exist?

From our RIPOSTE section

Question #1: There are 56 Nations with Islamic majorities, 49 with Catholic majorities, 20 with Protestant majorities, 12 with Orthodox majorities, and 4 with Hindu majorities. Shouldn’t there be 1 with a Jewish majority? In other words, shouldn’t Israel exist?

Answer #1: No.

a. When you take the entire land of Palestine, which the Jews have stolen to create Israel, the Palestinians (Christians and Muslims) constitute a majority, not Jews. That’s why it’s an Apartheid state.

Besides, very few countries, if any, impose religious conformity within their borders or turn the religion of the majority into a mandatory state religion which everyone must follow.

In the US, it’s forbidden by the constitution to have a state religion. If tomorrow the US decides to become a Christian-only country, the Jews would be the first to cry foul, while they hypocritically do the same with Pharisaism in Apartheid Israel.

b. Being part of a religious group does not entitle one to a country. The following religions (just to name a few) have none:

Druze
Babi
Yazdânism
Atheism
Gnosticism
Meivazhi
Jainism
Din-el-Ilahi
Shabakism

c. Judaism is Pharisaism, not an Abrahamic religion. Today’s Jews are NOT Hebrews (all HEBREWS are irrevocably DEAD), hence they have no right to the land of Palestine. Those who believe otherwise suffer from the Chosen People Syndrome.

d. No country has a “right to exist.” People have that right, and people can exist anywhere. Cases in point: when the Soviet Union was dissolved, its people continued to exist without the “Soviet” moniker; while the US is inhabited by people who gave up their countries of origin in order to make a fresh start in a new land.

Question #2: Wasn’t Israel created as an act of reparation for what the Jews went through during World War 2?

Answer #2: No.

Israeli monster and Palestinian fortitude.

Israel has been in the planning since the late 18th century, way before World War 2 – a war that was orchestrated by Zionist Jews in order to 1) favor their fellow Jewish bankers who stood to make a “killing” loaning money to Western Governments to wage war, and 2) finally give birth to Israel.

And what’s with this “act of reparation” business? Stealing another people’s country in the Middle East, which had nothing to do with what was going on in Europe at that time, is what you call act of reparation? Is that your sense of justice?

Besides, who’s going to pay acts of reparation to the Palestinians for what they have suffered at the hands of the Jews? Who?

Question #3: Wasn’t Israel as a country sanctioned by the United Nations? And doesn’t that make it legitimate?

Answer #3: No and no.

Blatant Apartheid in Israel: Racist Israeli Jews on the wide side and Arabs on the cramped side.

Most countries of the world were bribed and bullied by Britain and the US to shamelessly recommend the partition of Palestine at the United Nations in 1947, though the resolution of said recommendation was non-binding and never implemented by the Security Council.

Israel segregates and oppresses its majority Arab population, and treats them like animals. It is therefore not a legitimate country by any stretch of the imagination.

Question #4: First, Israel won their lands by right of conquest, the oldest and most salient form of land acquisition; therefore yours is an infantile argument. Second, Palestine was a creation of the Roman Emperor Hadrian. But you don’t know that because you obviously don’t know history.

Answer #4: First, as per your argument, it’s okay for China today, for instance, to invade the US in order to acquire more land and expand its Empire, since the right of conquest is the most salient form of land acquisition. And then when Chinese folks begin to take over the homes of Americans (like Israelis did of Palestinians), no one should utter a word. Yours is the argument of a THIEF!

“You shall not steal.” Exodus 20:15

Second, every nation on earth was started at some point by some entity. But you wouldn’t know since you’re having fun picking and twisting the history that suits you. Still, according to you, because the Roman Empire created Palestine, it’s quite just for it to be erased from the map, while Israel maintains Palestinians segregated in the ugliest form of apartheid.

Again, yours is the argument of a THIEF who wishes to appease his conscience by wrangling with false contentions that make no sense. There’s a better way to appease your conscience, since obviously you’re a Zionist Jew leaving on stolen Palestinian land: follow God’s commandments instead.

“You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.” Exodus 20:17

Question #5: One of the things Israelis love to say is that there’s no such thing as a Palestinian people. How do you respond?

Answer #5: That there’s no such thing either as:

– a Jewish/Israeli people – because Talmudic Judaism is Pharisaism, a non-Abrahamic religion that follows an evil book called the Babylonian Talmud, full of satanic superstitions, hence not a race;

– or an American people – because America is comprised of different races from all over the world that make up a community of inhabitants seeking a better life in a new land, hence not a race either.

The Israelis love to muddy the water in order to take the focus away from the fact that they’re not Hebrews (all Hebrews are irrevocably dead) and have no right to the land of Palestine, a country they’ve stolen and destroyed.

They hoodwink the uninformed into believing that the Palestinians – whether a race or not (like Americans) – do not exist, when said Palestinians have inhabited Palestine for about 2000 years, roughly 1600 more years than Americans have inhabited America.

They also impose on the world their psychotic Islamophobia and unabashed Hebraic pretense, as well as creating all sorts of malicious lies and satanic-inspired false flag terrorism, in order to choke the truth and lure the weak-minded into looking over there (Palestinians???) and not over here (Jewish impostors and terrorists!!!).

Unfortunately, a large number of people, especially brainwashed Christians, swallow the bait hook, line, and sinker, and consequently fail to see the following:

a) modern Israel is not comprised of the 10 Hebrew tribes like in scriptures; b) the country’s current geographical demarcation is not as delineated by God in the book of Joshua; c) the nation would be called Judah instead of Israel, with the Levites sheltered therein, if Jews today were of the tribe of David; and d) the modern impostor state of Israel is made up of Jewish converts who are not Semitic descendants of Abraham.

“To your (Abraham’s) descendants I give this land….” Genesis 15:18

However, Palestinian Arabs are Semites, descendants of Abraham; and therefore rightful inheritors of the land, not converted Jews. To obfuscate that reality, Israel engineered a hate-mongering and demonization campaign against Arabs and Muslims, which metastasized worldwide and seduced many Christians into sanctioning Israel’s foul anti-Christ spirit of “Hate Thy Neighbor.” See Israel Is The Problem.

Question #6: Haven’t the Jews always had a connection to Jerusalem?

Answer #6: No.

The Hebrews did, for a while. Before them, the Canaanites founded that place. And after Jerusalem was destroyed in 70 AD during the Hebraic period, the Arabs then took over.

The Jews never had a role in that city until Zionists stole Palestine and created modern Israel in 1948. Remember, Jews are converts to Pharisaism (now called Judaism), so they are non-Semitic people from other nations – though they are pretending to be Hebrews. See Pray for the Peace of which Jerusalem?

Red Alert: Syria, Lebanon, And Iran In The Crosshairs

“Their feet run to evil, and they hasten to shed innocent blood; their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity, devastation and destruction are in their paths.” Isaiah 59:7



It’s ALL for Apartheid Israel

“I’ve never seen a President — I don’t care who he is — stand up to them (Israel). It just boggles the mind. They always get what they want. The Israelis know what is going on all the time. I got to the point where I wasn’t writing anything down. If the American people understood what a grip these people have got on our government, they would rise up in arms. Our citizens certainly don’t have any idea what goes on.” — U.S. Navy Admiral and former head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Thomas Moorer, during an interview in August 1983.



A Regional War For Israel Is Coming

Excerpt from the article by Philip Giraldi

Israel controls Trump

With the appointment of leading neoconservative John Bolton as National Security Advisor, the Zionist war-party takeover of the White House is nearly complete. With Mike Pompeo as Secretary of State, Nikki Haley at the U.N. and now Bolton whispering in the President’s ear, we have a fully endowed war cabinet that will make sure the Mullahs, Russkies and Rocket Man begin to pay attention. As Haley laid down the law in the United Nations recently, “Our patience is not unlimited.”

Bolton, the point man for Israeli-American casino billionaire and GOP kingmaker Sheldon Adelson, will be the spark plug that ignites a new round of warfare on behalf of Israel. Bolton has long been planning to attack Iran. He secretly and illegally met with Israel’s Mossad intelligence service in 2003-4 when he was in the State Department under George W. Bush to lay the groundwork for such a conflict. Today, right-wing Israelis are certainly cheering his appointment. Naftali Bennett, a member of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s security cabinet, has already praised the move, calling Bolton “an extraordinary security expert, experienced diplomat and a stalwart friend of Israel”.

War is likely to start in the Middle East as Iran, Lebanon and Syria are relatively soft targets with only limited capability to strike back. As neocon pundit Michael Ledeen put it, “Every ten years or so, the United States needs to pick up some small crappy little country and throw it against the wall, just to show the world we mean business.” There have been numerous indications that Israel is preparing for war. Its planning clearly includes deliberately involving the United States in the conflict, turning American soldiers into de facto hostages, with U.S. casualties guaranteeing Washington’s direct and immediate involvement in the fighting.

Largely unknown to the American public, the United States has just completed the largest ever joint military exercises with Israel even though it has no defense agreement or treaty with Tel Aviv. That is, in part, because military alliances are dependent on an attack on one partner mandating support from all parties to the agreement. Israel has balked at such an arrangement because it cannot define its own borders, which are constantly expanding.

The recent maneuvers featured scenarios in which U.S. troops fought Syrians, Lebanese and Palestinians in a mock-up Arab village to defend Israel. Washington’s particularly vulnerability vis-à-vis Israel derives from the recent opening of a U.S. permanent facility at Mashabim Air Base in the Negev Desert.

It is described as a base within a base, completely contained by an Israeli air force installation and operating “under Israeli military directives,” meaning that if the facility is attacked Americans will likely die. It has no function in support of U.S. regional interests but is instead a shell facility with a few dozen airmen that can be ramped up considerably if Israel goes to war and calls for American assistance. Together with billions of dollars-worth of U.S. military equipment that is pre-positioned in Israel and can be used by the Israelis as needed, it is all about supporting Israeli war-making and has nothing to do with American security or defense interests except as a tripwire to bring about U.S. involvement.

For that reason, all of the above is something more than just the latest “we have to support Israel” gimmick. The American soldiers and airmen who are now based in Israel are the sacrificial lambs that will guarantee U.S. entry into a war that Israel intends to start, make no mistake about that.

When Israel attacks Syria and/or Lebanon, as it clearly intends to do, Hezbollah will retaliate with its missiles, some of which will surely be directed towards the Mashabim Air Base, which will be targeted to inhibit the base’s ability to bomb Lebanon. And once Washington is well and truly engaged in what is referred to as “force protection,” Israel will undoubtedly widen the conflict by drawing Iran in through attacks on that country’s identified bases in Syria that are supporting the al-Assad government. The bigger war will suddenly become America’s responsibility after Israel inevitably proves itself incapable of handling the escalation.


The Coming War On Lebanon

Excerpt from the article by Timothy Alexander Guzman

Washington’s plan to oust Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has ultimately failed. Now Lebanon seems to be in the crosshairs with tensions between Israel and Hezbollah on the same level that led to the 2006 Lebanon war. There is also the possibility that a new offensive against Syria might take place as Washington maintains its troop levels in the devastated country caused by ISIS and other terrorists groups they supported.

Various reports suggest that the Pentagon may reveal that there are close to 2,000 U.S. troops stationed in Syria even though ISIS has been defeated. So why is Washington staying in Syria? Will there be another attempt to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the near future? Most likely, yes. Adding the Trump administration’s continued hostilities towards Iran, the drumbeats of a new war in the Middle East is loud and clear.

Israel is gearing up for a long and devastating war against Hezbollah, an Iranian-ally who is based in Lebanon’s southern region to deter Israel’s expansionist ideas. Israel understands that a defeat against Hezbollah and the Lebanese military will be absolutely difficult to accomplish, therefore preparations to engage the Hezbollah this time will be an effort to create as much damage as possible and reduce their military capabilities, maybe in time for U.S. troops to enter the war through Syria and coordinate targets with the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).

Israel’s plan to launch more aggressive wars against its neighbors to further an expansionist objective would come at a great cost to Israeli citizens as their economy sinks into the rabbit hole and with the threat of incoming missiles from southern Lebanon makes it that much more worse. Lebanon and to an extent Israel will be once again devastated by a new war. For both sides of the border, it is a formula for disastrous consequences.


Iran Nuclear Deal Hysteria Is A Cry For War

By Views Of News

All those within Government and without who oppose the nuclear deal with Iran are only doing so to please Israel. Their hysteria is totally unfounded. If one wants peace, one must deal with one’s “enemies.” Roosevelt dealt with Stalin, Nixon with Mao Zedong, Kissinger with Le Duc Tho, Kerry with Castro, etc.

Those who cry wolf over the deal and want to attack Iran are only following the diktats of the Israeli terrorist-in-chief Benjamin Netanyahu. After all, he’s their god and whatever he says goes – that’s the only explanation for their idiotic stand. Watch this video of Netanyahu lambasting Iran in the US Congress, or not – after all, who can stand to watch that demonic and arrogant cad ordering the US around.

“If America goes to war with Iran, as is increasingly likely, it will be all about Israel,” said Philip Giraldi, former CIA officer.

Consequently, when the Middle East is set ablaze and millions of people lose their lives, the world will know who to haul at The Hague for crimes against humanity.


Dumb Moves Have Consequences

Excerpt from the article by Philip Giraldi

President Donald Trump (withdrew the US) from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) nuclear agreement with Iran that was signed by the U.S. and five other governments in July 2015. As one informed observer noted, “a train wreck is probably coming, with very damaging consequences that are hard to predict.”

The unfortunate truth is that going to war with Iran is popular among the policy makers and media for the usual reason: it is a major foreign policy objective of the Israeli government and its powerful U.S. lobby.

The U.S. and Israel are also expressing concern about Iranian ballistic missile capability. Again, ballistic missiles would appear to be a weapon that Israel alone seeks to monopolize in its neighborhood because it seeks to regard itself as uniquely threatened, that is, always the victim. It is an argument that sells well in the U.S. Congress and in the media, which has apparently also obtained traction in the White House. It is nevertheless a fake argument contrived by the Israelis. The missiles under development do not in any way threaten the United States and they were not in any event part of the agreement and should not be considered a deal breaker.

Add into the equation the clearly expressed and oft-times repeated Israeli intention to begin a war with Iran, starting in Syria, sooner rather than later, a disaster for American foreign policy is developing that might well make Iraq and Afghanistan look like cake walks. Iran will surely strike back in response either to the termination of the JCPOA or to Israeli bombing of its militiamen and surrogates in Syria. American forces in the region will surely be sucked into the conflict by Israel and will wind up taking the fall. Someone should tell Donald Trump that there are real world consequences for breaking agreements and rattling sabers.

Defining Moment For Putin: Stand Up To Israel

By Russia Insider

Russia must reconsider its current relationship with Israel because it is wrong for so many reasons, not least because it sends mixed messages to Russian allies in the Middle East.

First steps are already taken; Israel’s ambassador has been summoned to the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. But they should be doing much more than this. The whole current crisis is a consequence of Israel’s desire to prop up controlled chaos in Syria for decades to come and Russia being silent when it comes to Tel Aviv’s constant air attacks against Syria.

Syrian base bombed by Israel

Why is Russia keeping silent when Israel bombs Syria, but threatens the US when it says it wants to do the same? Where’s the logic? Why can Israel do it and the US, as a world’s first superpower, cannot? If Russia is not ready to retaliate against Israel, why do they claim that they are ready to retaliate against the US? It makes no sense. Therefore, Russia should not give Israel a free pass and should impose a similar set of economic and political sanctions as in the case of the U.S.

In any case, Russia should make clear to Israel that in case of Russian-American global war, Israel will be one of the first to be wiped out with the help of Russian nukes. This will make them think twice before instigating a global conflict against Russia.

Russia needs to understand that this has nothing to do with Assad, Syria or even the Middle East. It has everything to do with Russia. Israel and the U.S. decided it is the perfect time to inflict a humiliating defeat on Russia in Syria and take them out of this complex equation.

If Russia does nothing and hides under the table while whining and protesting against illegal American, British, French and Israeli strikes against the Syrian people, it will be the ultimate defeat and humiliation for Russia and Putin.


Putin’s Rules Of Engagement In Syria

By Views Of News

Putin is an extremely wise and cunning politician who’s no one’s fool.

He knows that Israel, fiercely supported by Trump and his administration, is hell-bent on starting a new conflagration by baiting Syria, an ally of Iran and Russia, into a wider war. However, Putin will not allow Russia to be sucked in this Middle East quagmire.

For one, Putin is not interested in a wider war nor in provoking one. And second, he wants to position himself as the level-headed peace-seeking adult in the room for the future World Order that will send every country running to him.

Still, in case of a major Israeli war involving Syria (and even Iran) he will not stand idly by. The reason is simple: Putin ABSOLUTELY cannot permit Assad to be deposed a la Muammar Gaddafi or Saddam Hussein; otherwise he will lose the base in Syria, which he cannot afford – he’d look like a fool and Russia would forfeit all the clout and good will it accumulated worldwide.

What will he do in case of a war? His rules of engagement are probably thus.

a. When the BIG WAR explodes Russia’s involvement will most likely be COVERTLY executed (e.g., Russian Soldiers and Jet Fighters disguised as Syrians).

b. Russia’s sophisticated weapon systems in Syria will ONLY be unleashed in the event said BIG WAR, which Apartheid Israel wants so bad, becomes inevitable.

“Putin will continue to hold his water, waiting for the opportune moment to reverse his opponent,” writes Tom Luongo, political commentator. “Russia’s limit has not been reached in Syria yet. Putin always does this. It drives his critics and his supporters crazy. It’s geopolitical judo and he’s the master at it.

“And when that reversal comes and Israel has been thrown flat on its back, Trump’s only move will be to settle. Why speculate on what he’ll do. Just watch and wait it out. The signs are all there.”


Listen Up, Israel!

By Views Of News

Your antisemitism trick has come to an end. Most everyone knows you are NOT Semites.

Your terrorism trick has hit a brick wall. Most everyone knows that those so-called “Islamic Terrorists” are really Israelis.

Your war plans and provocations are fizzling at an alarming rate. Most everyone sees through your evil shenanigans.

Your apartheid state will not last very long. Even some of your clear-minded citizens admit that much.

So take the following advice:

  1. Admit that you are NOT really the Hebrews of the bible.
  2. Forget about that nonsensical “Promised Land” that supposedly extends all the way to the Euphrates.
  3. Stop slaughtering the Palestinians, create a bi-national state, repatriate all their refugees, and pay reparations to all the families you have hurt.
  4. Give back to Syria and Lebanon the land you’ve stolen from them and make peace with all your neighbors.

If you do all these things, you may still have a chance to redeem your soul. Continue reading

Insight: Jewish Deception And Destruction

“Whatever you get, get insight. Proverbs 4:7



The world needs to acknowledge and deal with a number of lies and deceptions concerning today’s self-styled Jews, who have arrogantly placed themselves above the rest of humanity by crowning themselves God’s chosen people. In the process, they’ve made a mockery of the spirit of brotherhood our Lord Jesus commanded us to abide in.

“The trouble with lying and deceiving is that their efficiency depends entirely upon a clear notion of the truth that the liar and deceiver wishes to hide.” – Hannah Arendt

Let’s get a clear notion of the truth today’s self-styled Jews are trying to obfuscate through intrigues and stratagems.



Are Jews The Israelites Of The Bible?

Even a cursory study would show that those today who are known as Jews are not remotely bloodline descendants of Abraham.

Why Israelis Speak Hebrew

From our RIPOSTE section

Question: If Jews are not Hebrews, how come Israelis speak Hebrew? Doesn’t that prove their Hebraic heritage?

Answer: No, it doesn’t prove their Hebraic heritage.

1) Non-Hebraic Rabbinists (followers of the Babylonian Talmud) have been using the “Jew” appellation since the late 18th Century in order to appear to be Judahite Hebrews – see How The Ashkenazi Jews Conquered the West.

That way people could see them as the Chosen People, while they endeavored to steal Palestine and create modern-day Israel without the objection of the Christian world, especially since they were Eastern-European Nomads seeking a new country following the loss of their homeland Khazaria.

Then they – who originally spoke Yiddish – resurrected the dead Hebrew tongue after thousands of years in the dustbin of oblivion to make it Israel’s official language. In so doing, they consolidated in the world’s mind the impression that they were Hebrews rightfully returning home, when in fact they were not.

However, in their lust to deceive the world they got blindsided and completely overlooked the fact that, following the destruction of the Kingdom of Israel in 721 B.C., not even the Hebrews spoke Hebrew. They spoke Aramaic, the language of Jesus.

That’s why Mel Gibson made the movie The Passion of The Christ in that dialect. In turn, the Jews became furious – still on a vendetta against him – because Mel made them look ridiculous, especially as they wanted to be seen as “kinsmen” of Jesus, which they’re absolutely not. See Are Jews the Israelites of the Bible?

Deception: Yids who faked their Hebrew names

Further, as Jewish land thieves disembarked in Palestine in the 1940s to seize Palestinian lands and homes that Zionist terrorist groups – such as the Irgun, the Stern gang, and Haganah – had stolen in order to turn the country into Israel, they adopted Hebrew names to complete their “Hebraization” process – not unlike what they did when they scattered throughout Europe and America and assumed European surnames. See Israel: Land of Impostors

“We all went ‘native’,” admits Uri Avnery, Israeli political commentator. “On reaching the age of 18, we all exchanged our Jewish names for Hebrew Names. (That’s how Uri Avnery came into being.) We started to think of ourselves as a new nation, with a new “soul”, connected to Judaism, sure, but mainly historically.”

2) Are all people in countries where English is spoken of English descent? No. Were all Catholics, who celebrated mass in Latin, Romans? No. A spoken language is not indicative of a person’s ancestry.


Judaism Or Pharisaism

Talmudic Judaism is not an Abrahamic religion.

A simple Solution To The Israeli-Palestinian Problem

From our CHURCH REFORM series

Israel is an apartheid country that is revved up by the anti-Christ spirit of “Hate Thy Neighbor.”

It has repudiated the Prince of Peace’s message of neighborly love and peace, and has embraced the genocidal spirit of conquest, terror, and subjugation, which has injected into the Middle East a cesspool of conflict and hate that has begun to metastasize worldwide.

Palestinian fortitude in the face of Israeli aggression

Israel also deceptively insists that the Israeli-Palestinian conundrum is the fault of the Palestinians, when nothing could be further from the truth.

The Israeli-Palestinian problem can be easily solved because the solution is very simple. It would be settled tomorrow if Zionist Jewish leaders were not such bloodthirsty thieves.

How Rabbinists Became Known As Jews

From our WISDOM FOR TODAY series

Of the 12 Hebrew tribes, Judah was the most faithful and the most active in making converts, especially after they teamed up with the Levites.

“For the Levites left their suburbs and their possession, and came to Judah and Jerusalem: for Jeroboam and his sons had cast them off from executing the priest’s office unto the LORD.” 2 Chronicles 11:14

Their converts became known as the proselytes (i.e., the ones who prayed to Jehovah, the God of Judah).

“Judahites and proselytes Acts 2: 11

The other 10 tribes, collectively known as Israel, separated from Judah and always did evil in God’s eyes.

“Ephraim compasseth me about with lies, and the house of Israel with deceit: but Judah yet ruleth with God, and is faithful with the saints.” Hosea 11:12

So while Judah was helping the priests in the implementation of their office, Israel was basking in evil. Thus Judah became the one that carried the torch of God’s light unto the nations.

It was a process that would culminate with the advent of Jesus the Christ and His church assembly. Because, just like the Christian Church, the Judahite Hebrew nation was a proselytizing nation that wanted people all over the world to know and pray to the true God of the Universe; even though, at one point, the conversion process had become totally corrupted because of the pharisaic teachings. Let’s hear Jesus:

“Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.” Matthew 23:15

Later on, those proselytes, who obviously were not Judahite Hebrews and adhered to the pharisaic teachings, became known as Rabbinists, while their religion was called Pharisaism/Rabbinism, and their “holy writ” was entitled the Talmud, a Babylonian book full of lies and superstitions.

In the 18th Century, those very same Rabbinists hijacked the words Jew and Judaism, in order to change their appellation along with that of their religion (just like when Blacks didn’t want to be called Negroes no more). A change that was purely cosmetic, as their beliefs, which are still found in their enduring and cherished Talmud, did not change one iota.

The idea behind such superficial name changes was to deceive the world into thinking they were the Judahite Hebrews of the bible.

And what was their reason for wanting to hoodwink the world?

See How the Ashkenazi Jews Conquered the West.

Jew Focus

From our RIPOSTE section

Question: Why don’t you have anything extensive about Islam? Like you do about Judaism?

Answer: For the same reason we don’t have anything about Buddhism, Hinduism, etc. We preach the ONLY truth: pure Christianity. That’s enough to get all those of different faiths to ponder on what they should adhere to.

We, however, zoom in on Judaism/Pharisaism and Zionist Israel because they have infiltrated the church with their anti-Christ spirit; the other religions have not.

“They shall raise their voices against the serpents (or malicious ones)…” Mark 16:17

Therefore, we must be obedient to God and raise our voices to warn of the destruction that follows in the wake of Bolshevik/Zionist/Neocon Jews (a parasite by any other moniker is still a parasite):

Jesus’s peace and morality had been steadily increasing throughout the world, until that deadly, persistent Talmudic Ashkenazic Khazarian (aka Jewish) virus, which invariably hates the Prince of Peace and His followers, craves immorality, and engenders wars, began its assault on Christian civilization. But it won’t win.

“The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil.” 1 John 3:8

A few decades from now, a generation will look back and label this anti-Christ period of Jewish influence and manipulation as a New Dark Age.

Was Einstein Really A Genius?

From our WISDOM FOR TODAY series

Albert Einstein’s name has strangely become synonymous with “genius.”

But we couldn’t find one thing that man invented or came up with that made our lives better or that was not a fraud. NOT ONE THING! Even the equation E=mc^2 that is attributed to him is apparently from an Italian named Olinto De Pretto who published it in the scientific magazine Atte in 1903.

Yet everyone knows who Einstein is. His face and name are plastered on everything that hints at “sheer ingenuity.” Even his so-called “accomplishments,” besides being theories to begin with, were unsupported conjectures that amounted and led to NOTHING, especially his Theory of Relativity (including the GPS & Relativity myth). Nikola Tesla, a real scientific genius, categorized said theory as “the greatest historical aberration of scientific thought.” See Puzzled Scientists.

Here are some true scientific geniuses and visionaries: Johannes Gutenberg, Nikola Tesla, Isaac Newton, Auguste and Louis Lumiere, Charles Babbage, Reginald Fessenden, Guglielmo Marconi, Thomas Edison, Karl BenzWilhelm Conrad Röntgen, Wright Brothers, Jack Kilby & Robert Noyce, Tim Berners Lee, Alexander Fleming, Louis Pasteur, and Steve Jobs,  just to name a few.

All of them either invented or contributed to the invention of not useless theories but of things that improved our lives and catapulted humanity to a higher level of productivity. Yet none of them is uplifted like Einstein. Then again unlike Einstein they were not and are not Jews (some are still alive), so the Jewish-controlled media inflate their own to godlike status – even when they’re fake – in order to propagandize their misappropriated appellation of God’s “Chosen People.” See How the Ashkenazi Jews conquered the West.

The Destroyers Of The World

From our WISDOM FOR TODAY series

“We Jews, we, the destroyers, will remain the destroyers forever.” – Maurice Samuel

If one truly believes the Zionist/Jewish-dominated media, their fake news, and their constant barrage of “Holocaust” movies, one genuinely thinks that there’s only one group of people that everyone on earth hates: Jews. That’s how effective the brainwashing has been.

However, when one wakes up from the media’s induced stupor one realizes that Zionist Jews are themselves the victimizers of the world who camouflage themselves as victims.

Bolshevik Revolution: The Jewish Bolsheviks, who took over the Russian government in the 1910s, killed 66 million Christians, including 200,000 members of the Christian clergy, and destroyed 40,000 churches.

World War 1: Britain was losing the war against Germany. The Zionists stepped in and bribed President Wilson to get the US into the war to help them. In return, the Jews asked the British Empire to deed them Palestine to create Israel. Their wish was granted in the form of the Balfour Declaration of 1917, which cost the world 18 million dead.

World War 2: The Zionists fomented that war (just like they’re doing today with Iran and other countries in the Middle East), so that European Jews could feel threatened. The deception worked as European Jews fled in droves to Palestine and took over the homes of Palestinians, who were evicted at gunpoint and then either massacred or driven out of their land into neighboring Arab countries. With enough Jews on the ground, Israel was created in 1948 at a cost of 80 million dead.

World War On Terror: Zionist/Jewish neocons, in cahoots with their bought-and-paid-for politicians in the US government, perpetrated their act of terrorism on 9/11. Then they conveniently blamed it on Muslims so as to obtain a green light to destroy the Middle East using the armies of the US and NATO and the terrorist groups they finance, with the ultimate view to creating Greater Israel. So far, the death toll is over 3 million, including Christians.

World War 3: With Russia protecting Syria and Iran from Israel’s Machiavellian design, will the Zionists succeed in bringing the world once again to the brink of disaster to create Greater Israel? If they do, will it instead bring about their downfall?

Conclusion: It’s a shame that Jews who stand up to Zionism form a minority. The well-financed and extremely powerful Zionist movement, revved up by a foul and racist ideology, drowns out their voices.

Zionist Jews of all stripes – secular, religious, political – have no concept of God’s commandment to love thy neighbor. Instead, the anti-Christ spirit of hate thy neighbor permeates their souls with a sulfuric stench, while Israel remains the undiluted expression of said diseased spirit – a scourge,  a cancer that needs to be dealt with.

Appeal: Every conscientious individual should implement a personal boycott of Israel and everything made there.

What’s Really Going On In The Middle East

From our VIEWS OF NEWS section

Many are under the impression that the chaos that is spreading throughout the Middle East is to protect the petrodollar and secure oil resources for American and Western companies.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

First, the petrodollar is backed by Saudi Arabia and the other Arab countries. Yet, the US Congress recently passed a law that allows victims of “terrorism” to sue the Saudis. See this Post here.

That’s not how one maintains the hegemony of the petrodollar. Besides, if the petrodollar was the concern, Israel would be the first country to go, as most Arab countries do not support the theft of Palestine by the Zionists.

Second, oil resources are available all over the world, including the US; so there’s no need for war to control them. At the beginning of the oil rush it might have been a truism that war was necessary, not anymore.

“Oil and gas are abiotic, [and] can be found deep below the surface of the earth in most parts of the world and in very large amounts,” wrote Vinod Dar in Abiotic Oil and Gas

In general, it is true that wars waged by the US are mostly for American control of natural resources, territorial expansions, and the benefit of the Military Industrial Complex. It is also true that all US imperialistic moves are always meant to benefit the country’s most influential elite of the time.

For instance, the Vietnam war was to favor the elite that controls the Military Industrial Complex, whereas the banana wars were engineered to secure control over banana plantations in South America and the Caribbean for another segment of the American elite. The most blatant of the banana wars were in Honduras where the US intervened seven times between 1903 and 1925. None of these wars was about the US dollar.

Today, the US’s most demanding and most pernicious elite are the Jews, who are only satisfied when Israel takes center stage in US foreign policy.

“It does not take a genius to figure out that the United States is deeply involved in a series of seemingly endless wars pitting it against predominantly Muslim nations even though Washington has no vital interests at stake in places like Syria, Libya and Iraq,” explains Philip Giraldi, former CIA officer.

“Who is driving the process and benefiting? Israel is clearly the intended beneficiary of a coordinated effort mounted by more than 600 Jewish organizations in the U.S. that have at least as part of their programs the promotion and protection of Israel. If America goes to war with Iran, as is increasingly likely, it will be all about Israel and it will be arranged by the political and financial services Washington-Wall Street axis, make no mistake.”

So for the first time in America’s history, US-led wars are being waged to benefit a foreign nation, Israel, by wagging America from within, using the Jewish AIPAC as its whipping mechanism and bribe money as its corrupting influence.

Still, the US does want to maintain hegemony of the US Dollar. It does so through American control of powerful financial institutions worldwide, bribe, globalism, coups d’état, assassination, etc.

However, all current wars, conflicts, and fabricated terrorism in the Middle East are only to benefit Israel, destroy its perceived enemies, and facilitate its expansion plan.

Americans had better wake up before it’s too late! The Israeli parasitic infestation of the US government has reached critical mass.

“That (Jewish) stranglehold has got to be broken or this country is going down the drain,” explained Evangelist Billy Graham to President Nixon.


Urgent Appeal To Christians Who Support Israel

From our WISDOM FOR TODAY series

We know deep down no real Christian would support evil.

IDF Sniping Palestinian kids

Notice the Israeli Sniper’s bullet right through the heart of the deceased Palestinian boy

Doing so would be antithetical to everything our Christian faith stands for. Besides, we know that many of you were fed a bunch of lies concerning the ungodly State of Israel, which in turn caused you to sanction its demonic actions that are all contrary to God’s commandments.

Converted Jews of today are NOT the Hebrews of the bible. They’re Eastern European nomads who lost their country Khazaria and were in search of a new land. So they stole Palestine and renamed it Israel pretending to be Hebrews, when all Hebrews are irrevocably dead. See A Brief History of the Kingdoms of Israel and Judah.

a) Modern Israel is not comprised of the 10 Hebrew tribes like in scriptures; b) the country’s current geographical demarcation is not as delineated by God in the book of Joshua; c) the nation would be called Judah instead of Israel, with the Levites sheltered therein, if Jews today were of the tribe of David; and d) the modern impostor state of Israel is made up of Jewish converts who are not Semitic descendants of Abraham.

“To your (Abraham’s) descendants I give this land….” Genesis 15:18

Therefore, as you shake off the falsehoods you were brainwashed with, we ask the following of you.

Gaza Christians mourning their dead

Stop encouraging the US Government to fund Israel to the tunes of billions of dollars a year out of America’s coffers for Israel to wage war and oppress another people, while millions of Americans go hungry, jobless, and homeless.

Stop organizing fund raisers for the Zionist “settlers.” In so doing you’re actually helping these land thieves steal another people’s land, while empowering them to kill the original inhabitants in the process.

Stop lobbying the US government to provide the Apartheid criminal state of Israel with diplomatic cover in the international community.

For the sake of peace, start doing the opposite.

Call your political representative and give him/her a piece of your mind: that Israel should no longer get away with murder, and that Israel should accept a Palestinian State. Then organize mission trips to the West Bank and Gaza. Stop these pussyfooting “Holy” Land tourist trips. Go and help the oppressed. That’s the Christian mandate.

“Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.” Isaiah 1:17

Unfortunately, many of you, poisoned by compromised preachers and their false teachings in reference to converted Jews being “God’s chosen people,” are infected with Israel’s anti-Christ spirit of hate thy neighbor, especially you leaders of the “Christian” media who sold out Jesus and His Love-Thy-Neighbor command to Israel for 30 pieces of Jewish silver. Your unabashed loathing of Arabs and Muslims to please the Jews is shamefully evident to all.

“The companion of fools will suffer harm.” Proverbs 13:20

Remember the words of our Savior when you, with that anti-Christ spirit, call Him Lord – so don’t be surprised on Judgment Day.

“Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” Matthew 7: 15, 22-23

However, you can cure yourselves.

“If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it.” Genesis 4:7

Call To Action: Christians United For Palestine

“I will show you my faith by my deeds.James 2:18



Supporting Palestinians Living Under The Yoke Of Israeli Oppression



CUFPa is comprised of Christians from all over the world fighting for a Free Palestine.

They cross denominational lines and join together as one to face the greatest threat to world peace today: Israel, which is manipulating and wagging the American Empire to set the Middle East on fire to create Greater Israel.

In the process, the racist Israelis are brutalizing the Palestinian people and dispossessing them of not only their homes and land, but also of their freedom and dignity by treating them like no-class citizens in the ugliest form of Apartheid.

Join CUFPa in their fight against Israeli oppression, racism, and war crimes by sharing their site with others and by becoming active and vocal, while exercising a personal boycott of Apartheid Israel and everything made there.

“Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.” Isaiah 1:17

The Church Cannot Stay Quiet

Christians United For Palestine

Catholic News Agency

– The Catholic Church will speak out against injustice and avoid any attempt to normalize the “festering wound” of the Israeli-Palestinian situation, a commission from the region’s leading Catholic bishops has said.

Targeting Children

Israeli Monsters #1 Target: Palestinian Children

“The Church cannot ignore fundamental injustice or acts that endanger peace and the welfare of the human person.

“By her very nature, the Church opposes occupation and discrimination and is committed to promote justice and peace as well as the unique dignity and equality of every human person.

“The Church can never ignore injustice as if all is well but rather is obligated to speak out, resist evil and work tirelessly for change. Like the prophets of old, the Church, a prophetic body, points out injustice and denounces it,” the Justice and Peace Commission said.

The Justice and Peace Commission saw an important intersection between the Church’s position against injustice, and political discourse against “normalization” of the Israeli-Palestinian situation. The local Church is responsible for reminding the universal Church that the situation is “an open, festering wound and that the situation cannot be considered normal,” the commission said.

While in the State of Israel, Jews and Arabs have equal rights in principle, in practice Arabs face discrimination in access to development, jobs, education, and public funding for their cities, the group added.

“Some of these forms of discrimination are embedded in legislation, but others are indirect and hidden.”

The military occupation of Palestine undermines the residents’ daily lives, through settlement, road-building, Israeli construction on Palestinians’ private land, but also military incursion, assassination, arbitrary arrest, collective punishment, confiscation of land, and destruction of houses. Checkpoints limit their freedom of movement, which hinders economic development and family reunification.

“In both societies, Israeli and Palestinian, the life of the Palestinians is far from normal and acting as if things were normal ignores the violation of fundamental human rights.”

Palestinian citizens need Israeli permits and approval for many parts of life, such as visiting holy sites and Palestinian parishes, schools and hospitals in Israeli-occupied Jerusalem. Similarly, they need Israeli permits to build homes and businesses in Israeli-controlled areas.

South Africa Cuts Off Ties With Israel

Christians United For Palestine

By CUFPa

If there’s a country that knows about Apartheid, it’s South Africa.

And the fact that they’ve cut off all diplomatic ties with Israel is not only symbolic, but a powerful catalyst that will energize the coming downfall of Apartheid Israel.

“The South African government is intending to cut diplomatic ties with Israel in protest of its treatment of the Palestinian people, the country’s Science and Technology Minister Naledi Pandor announced yesterday,” reports Zero Hedge. “Pandor informed parliamentarians of the government’s resolution during a ten-hour joint debate on South African President Cyril Ramaphosa’s State of the Nation Address (SONA) that he delivered last week.”

Confirming the decision, Minister Pandor said: “The majority party has agreed, that government must cut diplomatic ties with Israel, given the absence of genuine initiatives by Israel to secure lasting peace and a viable two-state solution that includes full freedom and democracy for the Palestinian people.

That move is in no small part due to the pressure put on the S.A. government by the people of South Africa themselves. Bravo!


Oscar Celebrities #SkipTheTrip To Israel

Christians United For Palestine

By Ramah Kudaimi, USPCR

Israel had offered all-expenses-paid trips to 2016 Oscars host Chris Rock and 25 top nominees including Mark Ruffalo, Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet, Matt Damon, Mark Rylance, and Cate Blanchett. The Israeli tourism ministry organized the trip with hopes that the superstars would use their platforms to show Israel in a positive light, countering worldwide outrage over Israel’s oppression of Palestinians.

So what happened? It was an utter failure. Now, it appears that not a single star visited Israel. The AFP wire service even ran this extraordinary headline appearing in many media outlets, “Israel invited 26 Oscar stars to visit. So far none has.

Bringing celebrities to Israel has long been part of a “Brand Israel” strategy to improve the country’s image abroad. As Israeli tourism minister Yariv Levin explained last year, “These are the most senior people in the film industry in Hollywood and leading opinion-formers who we are interested in hosting. Their visit will have enormous resonance among millions of fans and followers, including social media.” But as of now, the Israeli tourism ministry would not confirm any visits by the stars, and there was no evidence of trips on social media.

It seems that the harder Israel tries to improve its image, the worse it fails. That news comes on the heels of former Super Bowl star Michael Bennett and several other NFL stars also choosing to #SkipTheTrip that they were offered by Israel.

Far from achieving their desired effect, these propaganda trips give us an opportunity to create broader awareness about the Israeli government’s brutal policies and attempts to whitewash them. While not every celebrity will turn down such offers, our cultural boycott campaigns are ensuring that every celebrity facing the choice must now consider the Israeli government’s cynical motivations and the impact on Palestinian communities struggling to survive.

That’s why days after the Oscars trips were announced last February, the US Campaign helped organize a coalition of Palestinian, Israeli, European, and U.S. organizations to launch a #SkipTheTrip campaign including a petition to the stars, individual letters to actors, and a comprehensive social media strategy. The dynamic campaign included creative memes, a comical video, and a satirical invitation from the legendary Brian Eno highlighting the types of “holiday” experiences one could have visiting Palestine like being interrogated, tear-gassed, beaten, and shot at.

Our efforts caught the attention of the Academy, which quickly distanced itself from the gift bags that included the trip and filed a lawsuit against the company that put them together. Then, when we tried to place an ad with member group Jewish Voice for Peace in Variety — the most important paper in the entertainment industry — calling on performers to #SkipTheTrip, we were censored! We were not about to be stopped. We called out Variety’s double standard and placed a full-page ad in the LA Times, generating headlines worldwide.

In the end, Israel’s big Oscars outreach campaign to showbusiness ended up netting them a bunch of no-shows instead.

Congratulations to everyone whose efforts led to a great victory. And if you want to be a critical part of future successful campaigns like this one, please consider making a contribution to the US Campaign today.


Every Christian’s Goals

“…the assembly of the living God, a pillar and buttress of the truth.” 1 Timothy 3:15

The pillar of the truth has been severely damaged by Jewish Zionist lies and manipulation. It’s time to repair it. To do so, the following are needed:

1. REMOVE the word Jew from the translated Christian Bible, since it is not in the original non-translated version.
2. Organize a BOYCOTT of the Apartheid and Oppressive state of Israel.
3. Propagate the fact that today’s converted JEWS ARE NOT the Hebrews of the bible, and have no so-called divine right to historic Palestine.

4. Promote a ONE-COUNTRY solution where Christians, Jews, and Muslims have the same right in the land.

It’s about time we Christians became once again the buttress of the TRUTH, and leaders in the fight against OPPRESSION.

“The bloodthirsty hate the innocent.” Proverbs 29:10

Israel is not a country. It is a den of vipers, whose crimes against humanity would make Hitler blush.

To understand the Israelis’ mindset in committing crimes with impunity, there’s no one better to explain it than Israeli journalist Arieh Shavit, “We believe with absolute certitude that right now, with the White House in our hands, the Senate in our hands and The New York Times in our hands, the lives of others do not count the same way as our own.”

Palestinian Children Killed

Moshe Ya’alon, Former Israeli Defense Minister: “Proud of killing the most Palestinians.”

Small boys baited

“Israeli cruelty, and what Palestinians view as sheer hatred for their children, was epitomized by the killing of 13-year-old Iman Darweesh Al Hams,” wrote Kamel Hawwash in his article Israel implements a deliberate policy to terrorize Palestinian Children.

“She was shot by Israeli army soldiers from an observation post in what Israel claimed was a ‘no-man’ zone near the Philadelphi Route in Rafah. As if that were not enough, the Israeli army commander fired the entire magazine of his automatic rifle into Hams’s body. A year later, that commander during trial expressed no regret over his actions and said he would have ‘done the same even if the girl was a three-year-old.’

“He was cleared of all major charges.”


Israel’s Moral Bankruptcy

Christians United For Palestine

By CUFPa

“Moral Bankruptcy: the state a person reaches when he trades away or violates too many moral values.” – Peg O’Connor, Ph.D.

How many

How many Israeli terrorists does it take to arrest one Palestinian kid?

The moral bankruptcy of a people can easily be gauged by the way they treat children. Israel has shown time and time again that it is past being morally bankrupt. It is way into dark territory, satanic even.

“The Israel Defence Force’s arbitrary use of violence against Palestinian children, including forcing them to act as human shields in military operations, has been exposed by veteran soldiers in detailed statements chronicling dozens of brutal incidents,” writes journalist Ruth Pollard.

“The most disturbing trend that emerges from the soldiers’ testimonies relates to the wounding and killing of children in the occupied West Bank and Gaza by either targeted shooting or by failing to protect minors during military operations, the report from veteran soldiers’ group Breaking the Silence says.”

Children who survive the IDF’s inhumane treatment while in detention are left scarred for life.

“In most cases, I found children who suffer from various traumas,” recounts documentary photographer Samar Hazboun. “Some were not able to talk about what had happened in prison; others burst into tears. In many cases, the children suffer from insomnia, involuntary urination, nightmares, depression, and fear of going out and facing people.”

Political analyst Randa Wahbe goes further: “Since the beginning of the second Palestinian uprising against Israel’s occupation in the early 2000s, over 10,000 Palestinian minors have been arrested by the Israeli military and subjected to cruel treatment, interrogation, and imprisonment – most are arrested on flimsy charges of stone throwing, punishable for up to 20 years. According to Defense for Children International-Palestine and UN OHCHR, 82% of minors experience physical violence at the hands of Israeli soldiers during their arrest and detention, and 97% of children undergo military interrogation without a parent present.

“On average, children spend 13 days in solitary confinement. During this period of intense isolation and questioning, children are coerced into signing confessions, written in Hebrew, a language most cannot understand or read, and are then indicted on that basis. Considering that the military court has a 99.7% conviction rate, the fastest way for a child to be released from custody is by pleading guilty, even when they are innocent.

“Israel is the only country in the world that systematically tries children in military court. At least 700 children are tried every year. It is worth noting that Israeli children illegally living in settlements on Palestinian land are subject to Israeli civil law rather than military law, further indicating the racist and discriminatory use of law for the purpose of criminalizing Palestinians.

“Now, more than ever, it is urgent for Congress to pass Betty McCollum’s proposed bill, which would prevent the use of US tax dollars for the Israeli military’s detention and mistreatment of Palestinian children.

“The message of McCollum’s bill is simple: As Israel’s largest benefactor, the US must stop funding Israel’s human rights abuses against children.

“Congress shouldn’t stop with this bill. Israel uses military law as a weapon to stifle any form of Palestinian resistance against its now 69-year-old military occupation and colonization of Palestinian land. Over 800,000 Palestinians have been arrested since the military occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem, and upwards of one million have been arrested since 1948. Political detention is central to entrenched occupation, and Congress must stop funding the instruments of oppression that affect Palestinians.

“Palestinians of all ages should not be persecuted for maintaining steadfastness on their land, nor should they be targeted for struggling for their freedom.”

Meet The Fake Hebrews

Christians United For Palestine

By CUFPa

Converted Jews of today are not the Hebrews of the bible.

They have been using the “Jew” appellation since the late 18th Century in order to appear to be Judahite Hebrews – see How The Ashkenazi Jews Conquered the West.

That way people could see them as the Chosen People, while they endeavored to steal Palestine and create modern-day Israel without the objection of the Christian world, especially since they were Eastern-European Nomads seeking a new country following the loss of their homeland Khazaria.

As Jewish land thieves disembarked in Palestine in the 1940s to seize Palestinian lands and homes that Zionist terrorist groups – such as the Irgun, the Stern gang, and Haganah – had stolen in order to turn the country into Israel, they adopted Hebrew names to complete their “Hebraization” process – not unlike what they did when they scattered throughout Europe and America and assumed European surnames.

“We all went ‘native’,” admits Uri Avnery, Israeli political commentator. “On reaching the age of 18, we all exchanged our Jewish names for Hebrew Names. (That’s how Uri Avnery came into being.) We started to think of ourselves as a new nation, with a new ‘soul’, connected to Judaism, sure, but mainly historically.”

Then they – who originally spoke Yiddish – resurrected the dead Hebrew tongue after thousands of years in the dustbin of oblivion to make it Israel’s official language. In so doing, they consolidated in the world’s mind the impression that they were Hebrews rightfully returning home, when in fact they were not.

However, in their lust to deceive the world they got blindsided and completely overlooked the fact that, following the destruction of the Kingdom of Israel in 721 B.C., not even the Hebrews spoke Hebrew. They spoke Aramaic, the language of Jesus.

Consequently, Israeli Jews are nothing but impostors living on stolen Palestinian land.

Their very presence in historic Palestine is the working of dark spiritual forces, which are trying to destroy the New Covenant of Christ by “resurrecting” the obsolete Old Covenant, using converted pharisaic Jews who are NOT even remotelydescendants of the patriarch Abraham.

“To your (Abraham’s) descendants I give this land….” Genesis 15:18

In so doing, they hope to totally muddy up the Christian faith, and obscure the truth of the superseded Old Covenant and of Christ’s fulfilled prophecies concerning the total annihilation of the Hebrew people and the destruction of Jerusalem, which took place in 70 A.D.

“For the land is full of adulterers; it mourns because of the curse. Their pastures have dried up into a wilderness. Their course also is evil, and their might is not right.” Jeremiah 23: 10

There has not been peace in the Middle East the moment non-Hebraic, pharisaic Jews set their sight on Palestine and created Israel in 1948.

The founding of that Apartheid country was forged on lies, especially on the misrepresentation that today’s Jews are Hebrews rightfully taking possession of inherited land, when in fact they’re NOT Hebrews at all – all Hebrews are irrevocably dead, their land inheritance buried along with them.

“The LORD was very angry with Israel, and removed them out of his sight… And the LORD rejected all the seed of Israel, and afflicted them, and delivered them into the hand of spoilers, until he had cast them out of his sight.” 2 Kings 17:18,20


Churches Are Standing Up

Christians United For Palestine

By Anna Balzer

Stand UpHave you heard the news? In the last several weeks alone, more than 35 local, regional, national, and international church bodies have taken bold actions in support of Palestinian rights!

A flurry of churches — 17 and counting — have declared themselves HP-free across the country in denominations including American Baptist, United Methodist, United Church of Christ, Unitarian Universalist, Presbyterian, Church of the Brethren, Quaker, Catholics, and others, as Friends of Sabeel – North America announced this week. The global Boycott HP Campaign campaign continues to escalate pressure on HP until it responds to these key questions and commits to ending its role in Israel’s abuses of Palestinian rights. Are you part of a church? Learn how your congregation can become HP-free. It’s easier than you think!

These principled churches have brought local congregations into the larger snowball of regional, national, and international churches taking action. Brace yourselves… there are a lot of them!

  • The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the United States and Canada affirmed the rights of Palestinian children and called for withholding U.S. military aid to Israel with a nearly unanimous vote!
  • The World Communion of Reformed Churches, with a membership of 80 million Christians worldwide called for solidarity with the Palestinian struggle and rejected any use of the Bible to legitimize injustice.
  • The Mennonite Church voted by approximately 98% to institute a policy against investment in Israel’s military occupation!
  • The United Church of Christ (UCC) General Synod (national) passed with 79% a resolution in defense of Palestinian children, having already passed divestment in 2015.
  • JThe Minnesota Conference of the UCC voted 144 – 5 to divest its $8 million in investments from companies involved in the occupation.
  • Fifteen United Methodist Annual Conferences — representing thousands of congregations — adopted a total of 23 resolutions this year supporting the HP boycott, excluding investment in occupation, opposing anti-BDS legislation, and more.

That’s a lot to take in! After you’ve caught your breath, take a moment to thank the DisciplesMennonites, and UCC so they know what broad support they have in this time.

17 Christian Groups Defend Right To Boycott Israel

Christians United For Palestine

By Michael Gryboski, Christian Post Reporter

A coalition of 17 Christian groups have sent a letter to Congress, urging them to reject a bill that would make it official U.S. policy to oppose boycotts of Israel.

The various Christian leaders, including many liberal mainline Protestants, sent the letter Monday, arguing that the “Israel Anti-Boycott Act” that is going through both houses would unjustly suppress “nonviolent peaceful action meant to bring about social change.”

“We are concerned by any legislation that suppresses legitimate criticism of public policy, and that restricts freedom of expression and our ability to determine our own witness through investment and selective purchasing practices,” read the letter.

The faith leaders also stressed in the letter that they view their efforts as “an effort to change unjust Israeli policy toward Palestinians,” but not “to delegitimize the State of Israel, nor to marginalize or isolate our Jewish neighbors, or their enterprises.”

“As churches and church-related organizations, we reject any efforts by the state to curtail these rights. We urge you to oppose the proposed legislation, and thus support the rights of individuals and institutions to spend and invest in accordance with their faith, values, and policies,” they concluded.

Signatories of the letter included the Rev. Teresa Hord Owens, president of the Disciples of Christ; Jim Winkler, president of the National Council of Churches of Christ in the USA; the Rev. Elizabeth A. Eaton, presiding bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America; J. Herbert Nelson, II, stated clerk of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.); and the Rev. John Dorhauer, president of the United Church of Christ.

Introduced in the Senate as S.720 and in the House as HR 1697, the Israel Anti-Boycott Act would amend the Export Administration Act of 1979 to prohibit support of international state-sponsored boycotts of Israel by U.S. citizens engaged in interstate or international commerce.

The “findings” section of S.720 explained that the United States has a history of opposing boycotts against Israel by international bodies.

To Infinity And Beyond

Infinity: Finite And Infinite
Thoughts on the eternal

Thoughts on the Eternal by Laisk Serg

To be finite is to be a small part of infinity.

We humans are finite or partial and possess only finite minds; therefore we cannot comprehend nor grasp the whole which is infinity, God’s domain. And because God Himself is infinite and not finite, He is thus whole and perfect, thereby not partial; ergo He’s uncreated in His infinity.

However, because we’re created (i.e., plucked out of infinity), thus limited, finite, and partial, we cannot fathom anything that is not created, just the way we cannot truly fathom God’s perfection because of our imperfection.

Consequently, we, finite, imperfect, and partial beings, know and understand only in part, but one day we will know and understand fully – when we are reattached to the Eternal Lord in His infinity (or eternity), from hence we came.

“For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes, the partial passes away… Now we see but a dim reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully…” 1 Corinthians 13: 9,10,12

Beyond: Our Mortality

Allegory of Vanity by Antonio De Pereda

It is quite strange that our mortality, especially during the stronger years of our lives, doesn’t much occupy our thoughts. It seems that the vigor of our younger selves always manages to steal away the reality of what awaits us at the end of the journey.

You would think, because death is only a breath away from spoiling our fleshly abode, that we would stop and think of the seemingly futility of it all; but no, we don’t.

As a matter of fact, in spite of the dreadful end which awaits us, we work without ceasing, generation after generation, to build as wonderful and magnificent a world as possible.

The result so far would not have been possible if we had stopped to seriously ponder on our guaranteed demise; and even though we know for a fact that we will die, we continually act as if we will not.

Which begs the question: why are we so disposed?

“He has also set eternity in the human heart.” Ecclesiastes 3:11

That’s why.

God has set eternity in our hearts, and no one can remove it.

“I know that everything God does will remain forever; there is nothing to add to it and there is nothing to take from it.” Ecclesiastes 3:14

The eternal spark that burns deep within our souls powers up our productivity and causes our lives to be fruitful. It’s almost as if we “instinctively” know our endeavors have eternal strings attached.

Consequently, our work is anything but futile since whatever we do we do for God, who alone holds the master plan which contains the end result of our combined labor.

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.” Colossians 3:23

The account of our earthly toil will be settled in eternity by the great Lord Himself, with either a reward or a punishment.

“Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness… And throw the worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” Matthew 25:21,30

Similar compensations will also be meted out for our obedience or disobedience to His commandments.

“Do not marvel at this; for an hour is coming, in which all who are in the tombs will hear His voice, and will come forth; those who did the good deeds to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment.” John 5: 28-29

Turning Humans Into Pavlov Dogs

C H U R C H   R E F O R M   S E R I E S

By Biblicism Institute

Classical conditioning (also known as Pavlovian or respondent conditioning) is a learning process in which an innate response to a potent stimulus comes to be elicited in response to a previously neutral stimulus.” — Wikipedia

“A bully pulpit is a position sufficiently conspicuous to provide an opportunity to speak out and be listened to. This term was coined by President Theodore Roosevelt…” — Wikipedia

Bully PulpitHave you ever wondered why politicians adopted and spread propaganda-style the expression Bully Pulpit, a term that reeks of religious connotation?

First, allow us to advance an explanation as to the true meaning of the term Bully Pulpit, not the “terrific platform” meme that was peddled by Theodore Roosevelt and his ilk.

When Christians go to church they are “bullied” to no end by a preacher who stands behind a “pulpit.” The reason it is qualified as bullying is because the preacher single-handedly commandeers Christ’s authority unto himself, as he disregards every gathering or assembly law stipulated by Christ and the Apostles in the bible. See Church Services Are NOT Biblical for an exposé.

Christians have been so “properly conditioned and programmed” by the Bully Pulpit practice that politicians salivated with envy, and could not resist the compulsion to appropriate it for their own end.

Who can blame them?

Let’s face it. Bully-Pulpitism is a very effective brainwashing method.

When believers attend church they are not allowed to speak or express their minds, even when the “preacher” spews out false dogmas. They are trained to passively sit in the pews and to robotically say “Amen.” They are thus perfectly molded to accept anything a mortal and fallible man says as long as he happens to stand behind a “pulpit.” Consequently, from a spiritual perspective, the Body of Christ suffers a debilitating paralysis. See Church Services Are NOT Biblical for an exposé.

However, for government leeches such a method is Nirvana or Elysium; Scoundrel Heaven, if you prefer.

The Pavlov Experiment

“Preachers do it and get away with it,” they properly deduced. “Why not use it for our benefit? Most of the work is already done. All we have to do is get the sheeple to associate us with the word ‘pulpit’ and… Abracadabra!”

Hence politicians have not only arrogated Bully-Pulpitism, they have perfected it to such a degree that Authoritarianism is becoming the norm almost everywhere.

That’s why Presidents, Congressmen, Politicians, and Public Servants of all stripes act all indignant whenever people question their actions or their stands on the issues.

“How dare the sheeple talk back to us?” they bark. “They’re supposed to stay quiet and acquiesce with just ‘Amen.'”

The political practice of Bully-Pulpitism has become so bad that the People’s Representatives even vote against the will of the people they supposedly represent, not feigning so much as a modicum of care for the wishes of their constituents. Said disposition has even trickled down to cops who have turned savagely wild on those they have sworn to protect and serve.

To further cement the process, these government rascals, in cahoots with  the Medical Community, have engineered a solution for those who dare think for themselves and question “Authority.” See Of Authority and Christians for an exposé.

They classify them as mentally ill.

In reality, such a dubious “scientific” diagnosis should have been expected. It wasn’t long ago that these whorish pseudo-scientists bravely concluded that two-year-olds who naturally act out suffer from Oppositional Defiant Disorder. It must be that behind their own “pulpit” of Make Believe or Make Disease, Anti-Authoritarianism – as a “sickness” – is a natural extension or progression of that invented kiddy disorder.

CONCLUSION

Bully-Pulpitism originated in the Church. It then extended to the political arena where savvy propagandists made sure it infiltrated every stratum of society. Unfortunately for all, it has turned fully cognitive humans into pitiful Pavlov dogs.

“We must obey God rather than human beings!” Acts 5:9
