Christians Have Been Duped by Zionists

Christian Zionism shadowWhat a horrendous perversion of the Gospel of Love! How can people who claim to follow Christ be so misled?! Because they have been fooled into believing the Bible teaches something it does not teach: Christian support of Israel. Israel is, in fact: antichrist, because Israel denies both the Father and the Son: “Who is the liar? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a man is the antichrist–he denies the Father and the Son.” (1 John 2:22).

The 100 Year-Old Duping of American Evangelical Christianity – Christian Zionism

christian-zionismWalk into any Christian bookstore in America and you will see how virtually everyone who calls themselves a follower of Jesus Christ in this nation has been tricked into believing a false theology, which leads them to believe, erroneously, that the Bible commands them to support the Jewish nation of Israel.
The driving force behind this error was the 1909 Scofield Reference Bible, which was the first Bible printed by Oxford University Press that included theological reference notes that guide the reader as to how to “properly” understand, or interpret, the biblical text.
It’s no coincidence that the rise of Zionism, that is: the impulse of the Jews to seek a homeland for themselves, began not long before the Scofield Reference Bible was published. In the late 1800’s, England is where Zionism first found political support. England was already awash with the erroneous “Christian” doctrine of British-Israelism, wherein the British Christians were taught that they were one of the lost tribes of Israel; therefore they should support the Zionist Jews venture to create a Jewish state: Israel.
With the advent of World War I, England began the push to create a Zionist homeland for the Jews in Palestine. This served two functions: it would ensure safe passage through the Suez Canal and trade with India; and it would placate the Zionist Jews and the British Christians who, due to British-Israelism, had been fooled into thinking they should support Zionist Jews in obedience to God and the Bible.
Fast forward 100 years and we find that American Evangelical Christians have, long ago, been fooled into believing they should support Jewish Zionism, because they mistakenly believe the Bible teaches this, and that God will curse them and America if they/we don’t. Thus we have never-ending support from the American Evangelical Christian Right for endless wars on behalf of Israel.
This duping of American Evangelical Christians is mostly due to the fact that the Scofield Reference Bible and its footnotes, which explains the biblical text in a way that convinces its unsuspecting readers to support Zionist Jews. Its complimentary theology: Dispensationalism, has been instrumental in influencing American Evangelical Christians to support Israel, because the theology of Dispensationalism has been pervasive throughout virtually every American Evangelical Bible school and theological seminary for the past 100 years.
