In the 9 years I have
been involved in this ministry, I have written reports on the
subject of the United Methodist's and there stance against
Israel, as well as how strange it is that there are those in the
Christian community who are offended with the Jewish people,
just for being Jews - when their Messiah is Jewish. This
reasoning always causes me pause and I must admit, much
frustration. When someone writes an article that is accurate in
its analysis and observations, why should I pontificate when I
can make sure you get a chance to read the report for
yourselves. Please take the time to read Jan Markell's article
below, I found it to be very enlightening!
The Latest Catastrophe!
By Jan Markell
I recently wrote on Hamas in America and about
the FBI watching Hamas leaders film a bridge on the East Coast.
I will not be repetitive other than to say that many Americans
pay no attention to terror in faraway places.
That is why I must
emphasize that these terror outfits operate right here in
America and in this case, in Minnesota -- my home state. What a
chilling example of this
here. Scroll down to the YouTube "Hamas, Fatah, Fight it
Out in Minnesota."
Now to the
The United Methodist Church (UMC) is hardly acting Christian.
Yes, I know there are good people in that denomination who would
never go along with this. Nonetheless, the UMC is hosting a
Capitol Hill exhibit portraying Israel's founding as a
"catastrophe." Guess they are biblically illiterate! Do they
even read the Bible? Israel plays a role from Genesis 12 to the
end of Revelation! So, following that line of thinking, then
the Bible also is a "catastrophe."
"60 Years of
chronicles the "Nakba," the Palestinian word for "catastrophe"
used to describe Israel's founding. The photo exhibit trumps a
mass deportation of Palestinians, massacres of civilians, and
the razing to the ground of hundreds of Palestinian villages.
It is appearing in the lobby of the United Methodist Building in
Washington February 3-24.
Institute for Religion and Democracy representative Mark Tooley
activists claim they support Israel's existence. But the 'Nakba'
mythology portrays Israel's founding only as a catastrophe. Will
the United Methodist lobbyists ever host an event that
celebrates Israel's existence?"
It would be
nice if those members of the "Religious Left" would go after
nations that deserve some condemnation.
How about calling North
Korea a "catastrophe," or Iran? How about at least respecting
Israel for being our ally in the war on terror
(a phrase hardly used anymore as it is politically incorrect and
we don't want to offend).
I would recommend that you contact the United
Methodist Church but they are likely to deny this just as the
ELCA denied a similar problem. However, you can look up the UMC
on the Web if you like and e-mail them politely.
The root of the
problem is that the Methodist church and other mainline
Protestant churches, and the Catholic church, believe in what is
called Replacement Theology.
teaching states that the church is the new Israel and there is
no relevance to Israel today. It is one of the more dangerous
false doctrines out there as it skews the entire Bible. And it
creates the kind of anti-Semitism outlined above.

The Bible prophesies persecution of both Jews and
Christians in the last days. How unfortunate that it is
so-called Christians actually persecuting the Jews. If
one considers himself a Christian, then let me quote the
How odd of God to choose the Jews,
Yet not so odd as those who choose,
the Jewish God, yet spurn the Jews.
