“Exposing The Dispensational Lie Of Giving Honor to Unregenerate and Unbelieving Israel” and a few quotes…


Bill, at Soul Refuge, has a good post up today..

How should a true born again, Bible believing Christian, view the modern day State of Israel, and the Jewish people in general? What should our attitude be toward them? Do the Jewish people, especially those who reside over in modern day Israel deserve honor, or special treatment above the rest of society? Those are some of the questions that I will answer according to the scriptures in this article.

Please continue reading here

I’d also like to share a few quotes with you from another source, which frankly, when I first read them blew me away.

Explaining, from a theological basis why its not necessary to missionize Jewish people, Margaret Brearley, author of Jerusalem in Judaism for Christian Zionists, writes..

Because the Jewish people does in some mysterious way bear God’s name and witness to his existence and ethical demand, Christianity was clearly not designed to replace Judaism, instead, there was a continuing covenant with the Jewish people….Christians need to learn from observant Jews. Orthodox Judaism, therefore, can be a helpful reminder of what should be orthodox in Christianity. The Church, God’s gentile worshippers, vitally needs God’s (*orthodox) Jewish worshippers, for together we are the household of God.

She also claims within her book that Paul had Judaism in mind when he described the unity Jews and Gentiles shared in “God’s Household” in Ephesians 2:19 – ” Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;”  Even though Paul explains this unity is achieved ONLY through Christ’s death. – verse 20: “And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone”

John Hagee wrote in Final Dawn Over Jerusalem, that “the idea that Jews are going to convert (to Christianity) is a delusion born of ignorance”. In an interview he speculated,

I believe every Jewish person who lives in the light of the Torah has a relationship with God and will be be redeemed. In fact trying to convert Jews is a waste of time…Jews already have a covenant with God that has NEVER replaced Christianity.

Concerning Israel’s superior status to the Church

Anne Dexter of CMJ (The Church’s Ministry Among Jewish People) wrote in The Eternal Covenant,

Gentiles were never a covenant people. Talk of a new covenant replacing an old one is meaningless to them. Promises of God’s law written upon a renewed heart are, logically only for those already committed to the Sinai law. The Jews never cease to be ‘the’ covenant people but, by rejecting Jesus they simply stay in the earlier stage of revelation of the kings and prophets, there to remain until the time when all Israel is saved.

Hal Lindsey, concerning those who reject dispensationalism, “They are perpetuating replacement theology” and,

…covenant theology is the basis for the same error that founded the legacy which ultimately led to the holocaust of Nazi Germany (From his book  Road to Holocaust)

I could fill page after page with similar non-biblical ridiculous quotes. One of the more ludicrous beliefs held by many Dispensationalists (particularly Christian Zionists) is that the Church has been merely a 2000 year parenthesis to God’s future plan for Israel as God’s chosen people.

(all quotes above taken from Christian Zionism: Road-Map to Armageddon?)

  1. In the dispensational mind Old Testament Israel is saved because they are Abraham’s seed, they are in covenant relationship with God, they will be justified by law works, etc., and etc…. Paul refutes all these notions in his writings to various churches.

    The reason dispensationalists and I disagree is because we are working with a different hermeneutical methodology when we approach scripture. They have an Israel-centered hermeneutic and I use a Christ-centered one.

    So thanks for the quotes, by various dispensationalists exposing their faulty theology.

    • The reason dispensationalists and I disagree is because we are working with a different hermeneutical methodology when we approach scripture. They have an Israel-centered hermeneutic and I use a Christ-centered one.

      Amen, and that is really what it boils down to, isn’t it.

      One of the best messages on this topic i ever read, or maybe i only believe it was because it impacted me personally so deeply at the time, was written by Nathan Pitchford. It is titled, “Dispensationalism and the Eclipse of Christ” (An Open Correspondence)

      When we fail to understand (or see) that the old testament was always pointing toward Jesus Christ and the new testament is the revealing of Him, we are like those to whom Jesus said,

      “You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these that testify about Me; and you are unwilling to come to Me so that you may have life.” (John 5:39, 40)

      Dispensationalists, at least in my opinion, cannot see this.

  2. Thanks for the link to Nathan Pitchford’s article. Blessings.
