The Grace of God

That Brings Salvation Has Appeared to All Men (Titus 2:11)

Zionism/Dispensationalism

Here I will post links to any articles that touch on these false doctrines which create an unbiblical relationship between the modern state of Israel and the Church.

These wicked doctrines have caused much harm and confusion, including:

–Racism (saved by race rather than by grace through faith),

–Excusing the sins of one nation (generally Israel or the USA),

–Withholding the gospel from nations (disobedience to the Great Commission),

–Wanting to physically harm other nations rather than evangelize them (Jesus said this is a wrong spirit–Lk. 9:54-55),

–Rejection of Christ’s teachings, especially the Sermon on the Mount,

–An obsession with physical dominion of this earth now, even if it can only be brought about through sin (Crusades),

–An elitist view of America which includes a refusal to suffer, and a belief that God won’t allow American Christians to suffer,

–And a diverting of the Church’s labors from evangelization to political involvement.

And I’m sure there are more!! Lies beget more lies, so this page is devoted to exposing those lies.

Articles by others:

Christian Zionism and the Myth of America by John Hubers One of the best short readings I’ve ever seen that ties together the American “Manifest Destiny” mindset with Zionism and the twisting of Scripture called “Dispensationalism.”

Christian Zionism: Dispensationalism And The Roots Of Sectarian Theology — a general history by Steven Sizer

Israel versus the Church: A False Dichotomy –a good article showing that the Church has been here since the Old Testament, and that Gentiles are grafted into that Church, making one new man of Jew and Gentile believers.

Spiritual Israel by Doug Batchelor and Steve Wohlberg. A good article explaining the significance of the name of Israel, how Old Testament events foreshadowed New Testament events and were fulfilled in Christ, why a rebuilt temple in the carnal nation of Israel today is not relevant to the Christian, and what is meant by “all Israel shall be saved.”

The True Israel of God by L.R. Shelton The author is “reformed,” and so holds to Calvinism (which I reject). Nevertheless, his presentation of the Biblical Israel is excellent.

The Church is Israel Now by Charles D. Provan. Scripturally proving that Disobedient Israel was never counted as God’s Israel, and the Obedient Church IS counted as God’s Israel.

Two Kingdoms  by Steve Thomas. Should we focus on one earthly kingdom vs the rest of earthly kingdoms? Or has God shown that the real divide is between His Kingdom and the kingdom of darkness?

What Are We to Make of Israel? There are 4 audio lectures on this page by Steve Gregg (located near the bottom of the page). Each is about 1.5 hrs long. I arrived at my own conclusions before ever hearing Steve’s teaching, but we have arrived at essentially the same conclusions.

Popular author and zionist John Hagee denies Jesus came to be the Messiah — 1 minute video straight from his mouth. Dispensational lies beget more lies, and where does it end?

Videos:

Seven Biblical Answers to Popular Zionist Assumptions by Stephen Sizer. This video is VERY GOOD! Contains Scriptural refutations to the commonly heard arguments.

With God on our Side Excellent Documentary from a western Christian perspective. The Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands, and what the other side of the story looks like once we peer past the propaganda.

Life in Occupied Palestine by Anna Baltzer.  A very clear and eye-opening explanation by an American Jew.

To See if I’m Smiling Video testimony of six female Israeli soldiers who served in the occupied territories

Breaking the Silence Lots of video testimonies of Israeli soldiers

Testimony of Eran Efrati, a seventh-generation Jerusalemite

Testimony of Miko Peled, son of a famous Israeli general

What Really Happened in Israel and Palestine?  This is an important history lesson, narrated by Jews and Christians.
