Holy Racism

Many in American churches will practically worship someone Jewish who happens to grace their doorway. It's very sad to see how far into deception the Christian church is regarding this. The congregation will stare with some bug-eyed admiration, as if a Jew has a golden aura around them, and rose petals should fall in their footprints. Many will talk delicately so as not to anger their visitor, if they even bother witnessing to them at all, and if they do try to convert them, there will be plenty of walking on eggshells.

Many--if not most--churches teach things like "We can't defy Israel" or "God bless the Jews" or "God especially loves the Jews, they are His special people".

Not only is it a dangerous belief system, but it also has real world dangers, regarding foreign policy. The Christian churches have been brainwashed into supporting a nation of people who, as a whole, HATE the Messiah Jesus Christ...they are adamantly dead set against Him, they call Him a pig, a myth, a "mamzer" (hebrew for bastard), they detest and despise the only begotten Son of the living God.

Tragically, supporting them with a gullibly blind faith is one of the most popular and dangerous doctrines in Christianity, it needs to be understood and put an end to with sound scriptural knowledge...

This is something that will no doubt tick off alot of people, and get many in the fundamental churches fuming and foaming at the mouth, but for the sake of truth, it must be said:
"There is nothing holy about the plot of land in the middle east known as 'Israel', nor is there anything special about people who claim to be Jews based on their last name/bloodline/dna/ethnicity etc."

I intend to debunk this insipid belief of racism once and for all. It is racism at it's very core, no matter how you want to paint it. Let me affirm right from the beginning that I am not anti-semitic. I'll say it again for clarity, I am not anti-semitic. According to Webster's Dictionary, the definition of the word "semite" is...
1 a: a member of any of a number of peoples of ancient southwestern Asia including the Akkadians, Phoenicians, Hebrews, and Arabs b: a descendant of these peoples 2: a member of a modern people speaking a Semitic language

It helps to point out the definition of the word before I am falsely accused of being something that most people don't even know the meaning of. Many who would claim to support Israel, but are for the desruction of Iraq, Iran, Palestine, Syria, Saudi Arabia etc. are in fact anti-semitic themselves, because "semite" includes ARABS. I'm against racism in all forms, I pray for the peace of all nations, not just Israel. I don't know why people think that if you speak out against the religion of Judaism, or against the middle eastern country called Israel, that you must also hate the race of people that are closesly associated with both.

First, if you aren't familiar with it, Galatians 4:19-31 especially verse 24, show that the whole foundataion of the nation of Israel in the Old Testament telling of Isaac and Ishmael is an "allegory", and the hidden underlying meaning of the story has nothing to do with a bloodline or 2 children, but is regarding the comparison between the spirit and the flesh. See The True Jew for more information on this.

There, now that everyone has picked up their stones and I've hopefully gotten your attention, for the sake of brevity, here come all the scriptures to back up my claim.

Who are Abrahams's seed?
Gal 3:29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.

What did Jesus have to say about the Jews of His day?
Mat 8:11 And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.
8:12 But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Mat 21:43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.

John 8:39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.

John 8:47 He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.

John 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

What does Paul say about who Israel really is?
Rom 2:28 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:
2:29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

Rom 9:6 Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel: (true Israel are those who are born of the Spirit, as Paul explains in Gal 4:21-31)

Is a non-Christian Jew still one of God's people?
Rom 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His.

2nd John 1:9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

Does God hold a preference on DNA or blood?
Rom 11:20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:
11:21 For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.

Heb 8:9 [Their fathers, led out of Egypt] continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord.

Act 10:34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
10:35 But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.

Does God even see a difference in the flesh?
Act 15:9 And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith.

Rom 3:22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference

Rom 10:12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.

Gal 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

Col 3:11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.

What about all that temple stuff?
1Cor 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
3:17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

1Cor 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

2Cor 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Act 7:48 Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet

Act 17:24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands

Heb 9:11 But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building

Heb 9:24 For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us.

What does the Old Testament say about this stuff?
Jer 9:26 Egypt, and Judah, and Edom, and the children of Ammon, and Moab, and all that are in the utmost corners, that dwell in the wilderness: for all these nations are uncircumcised, and all the house of Israel are uncircumcised in the heart.

1Kings 9:6 But if ye shall at all turn from following me, ye or your children, and will not keep my commandments and my statutes which I have set before you, but go and serve other gods, and worship them:
9:7 Then will I cut off Israel out of the land which I have given them; and this house, which I have hallowed for my name, will I cast out of my sight; and Israel shall be a proverb and a byword among all people.

Josh 24:20 If ye forsake the LORD, and serve strange gods, then He will turn and do you hurt, and consume you, after that He hath done you good.

1Ch 28:9 ...if thou seek Him, He will be found of thee; but if thou forsake Him, He will cast thee off for ever.

2Ch 7:19 But if ye turn away, and forsake my statutes and my commandments, which I have set before you, and shall go and serve other gods, and worship them
2Ch 7:20 Then will I pluck them up by the roots out of my land which I have given them; and this house, which I have sanctified for my name, will I cast out of my sight, and will make it to be a proverb and a byword among all nations.

2Ch 15:2 ...The LORD is with you, while ye be with Him; and if ye seek Him, He will be found of you; but if ye forsake Him, He will forsake you.

And lastly....
Hosea 2:23 And I will sow her unto Me in the earth; and I will have mercy upon her that had not obtained mercy; and I will say to them which were not My People, Thou art My People; and they shall say, Thou art my God.

1Peter 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
2:10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but have obtained mercy.

But wait! What about sacred relics, like all the holy golden cherubim, and altars, and menorrahs...Doesn't it matter?
Act 17:29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device.
17:30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at(overlooked); but now commandeth all men every where to repent:
17:31 Because He hath appointed a day, in the which He will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom He hath ordained;(JESUS) whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that He hath raised Him from the dead.

That last group of verses is an absolute 100 megaton explosion to the argument about sacred objects, 'godly' graven images of the temple, relics of the OT, and the such implications that these things matter now, or ever really did. God passed it by due to the peoples ignorance, and most likely influences of false religions after leaving Egypt. God never seemed to care about gold, jewels, polished silver, fine brass, or the fabric of holy robes prior to Moses leading Israel out of Egypt, yet from this point on, it seemed to matter a great deal. These verses just explained it all away, and that's why we as Christians are not instructed to carry on with these things.

It's obvious from the first verse of the first chapter of 1st Peter, that Peter was talking to gentiles, (of the flesh) that they were now brought into being the true nation of Israel, (the one of the Spirit) and that Hosea had been fulfilled. Those who were not God's people, now are His people.

To effectively evangelize to well versed Jews you have to appeal to some common sense and real world history. I learned a long time ago that trying to convert Jews and Muslims to Christianity by using their own scriptures, really only works on unlearned followers. The more educated scholars don't fall prey to the same tactics, nor do educated Christians get converted from Christianity.

To prove to Jews and anti-Christian Judaizers that Judaism is not the way, I point out these important facts about the scriptures and history...

1. In the OT God blessed Israel when they were righteous. They prospered, they conquered and ruled, and not a single enemy could lay a hand on them. If needed, God Himself would destroy Israel's enemies. God also punished Israel severely when they were wicked, and became corrupt. This happens many ways and many times in their history, especially through the book of Judges.
2. Israel completely fell prey to being overthrown as a sovereign nation and became occupied territory by the Roman government in the 400 year gap between the OT and the NT. This fact alone should alarm any person of the Jewish faith, because according to the OT, such a travesty should never have occurred to a 'righteous' and 'holy' nation.
3. Within one generation after the crucifixion of Jesus, as He prophecied, the temple was completely destroyed, ransacked, ravaged, and obliterated in 70 ad. The holy sacred temple was dashed to pieces and blown to the wind. If God cared so much about temples and sacrifices, He surely would have prevented that. Shortly thereafter, Israel was scattered among the nations and wandered for centuries without having a land of their own. Basically a 2,000 year punishment. Something must have gone terribly wrong.

Without even needing to go into the atrocities of the holocaust, how on earth could God have allowed this to happen, if truly Israel had done nothing wrong?
Going by scriptural history, the only logical answer is that Israel must have descended into wickedness like never before. Punishment very similar to this has happened previously, in Lamentations 2:5-7, though never for this long.

This is where Christianity comes to the rescue and explains what happened to Israel, how they became heathen, and eventually rejected their own messiah and the true ways of God (Matt 8:11-12, Matt 12:7, Matt 5:21-46, Matt 21:43, John 8:47, John 1:18, Act 2:36, Rom 11:20, Col 1:15, etc. etc. see also Judaizers, Sacrifices, and OT violence for more info). As a result of their wickedness, God made good on His word and proved He did not make idle warnings to Israel (1Kings 9:6-7, Josh 24:20, 1Ch 28:9, 2Ch 7:19-20, 2Ch 15:2). Every Christian needs to know this and address these issues to evangelize to the Jews, it's that easy.
