US Evangelist John Hagee Gives $6 Million to Israel


From NewsMax: US Evangelist Gives $6 Million to bribe Israel

JERUSALEM — American evangelist John Hagee announced donations of $6 million to Israeli causes on Sunday and said that Israel must remain in control of all of Jerusalem.

Hagee, a Christian Zionist who has been in the spotlight lately for endorsing presidential candidate John McCain and criticizing the Catholic Church, brought hundreds of backers on a solidarity trip to Israel.

Hagee and his group, Christians United for Israel, joined keynote speaker Benjamin Netanyahu, the leader of Israel’s hard-line opposition Likud Party, at a rally in support of Jerusalem remaining united and under Jewish control.

“Turning part or all of Jerusalem over to the Palestinians would be tantamount to turning it over to the Taliban,” Hagee told an audience filled with Americans who waved Israeli flags and cheered.

  1. Hi PJ,

    This morning, before I went to my computer and read this article, I was thinking about believers “falling away from the faith.” I was thinking how “obvious” falling away can be when someone goes back full force into their old wicked lifestyle.

    But what about someone who is led astray by false teachers and ends up supporting injustice without realizing it. Isn’t this falling away from the faith? They are zealous, yet they are not walking in truth. Those were my thoughts this morning.

    The more I read about Zionism, and knowing that a multitude of professing Christians have become lured into politics, and all which that involves, I am seeing that this is more serious than we realize. This is not the “the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.” At the heart of the Gospel is mercy which available to all. I don’t see mercy. I think we are in for some times in the days ahead.

    Blessings,
    Cathy

    “I think we are in for some hard times in the days ahead.”

  4. Hi Cathy…

    The second group you mentioned are in a worse spiritual condition, in my opinion. Maybe a better term would be in a more dangerous condition.

    When someone backslides, at some point they realize it…they know it. But those who follow after false teachers, especially a teacher, who as you pointed out, teaches/preaches injustice in the name of Christ, they are deceived.

    What is more frightening: to know one is in a bad spiritual condition and/or backsliden, or one who goes along deceived, believing they are fine spiritually? To me its the latter condition!

    At least the first person “knows”..and God willing, can repent and return to the fold. How can one repent (or believe they need to) if under deception?

    scary…

    They are zealous, yet they are not walking in truth.

    Yes. Zealousness is not always a “proof” that one is walking in truth. All if not most of the worst injustices ever committed upon mankind, through out history ,were committed by overly zealous individuals or groups.

    Hagee and his cause are both extremely dangerous for their zealousness is based upon seeing their interpretation of prophecy fulfilled. At any cost! That cost includes lost souls…

    Christian Zionism is a political machine… and its not motivated at all in seeing the Gospel spread to the lost of all nations.

  5. I stated in my above comment that Christian Zionism in this country, CUFI being the leader, is a political ‘animal’ in nature and not a Christian or Christ centered org. This story in todays JPost, concerning the Hagee event this weekend in Israel, says it all:

    Quote:

    Hagee has united evangelical Christian supporters of Israel in the US under one umbrella organization, dubbed the Christian Aipac, which focuses solely on support for Israel and does not work to convert Jews to Christianity.

    Also in this JPost article is this announcement:

    “You are the right man in the right place in the right time,” Elon said Friday at a book launch of Hagee’s book In Defense of Israel, which has now been translated into Hebrew.

    That book….the one which many Christians openly denounced as heresy, which proclaimed that Jesus did not come as the Messiah, and was loaded from cover to cover with false teachings, has now been translated into Hebrew and is being peddled in Israel!

    For anyone who read that book, you know how horrible a thought it is to know lost people, lost without Jesus, are now to have access to its contents!

  6. PJ,

    Hagee is dangerous in this respect. His teachings are dangerous and I cannot help but think he is doing more to make ‘sons of hell’ than those Pharisees Jesus criticized. What amazes me is that he has such a large following when his teaching is so patently and blatantly false. I wonder if there are any blogs out there that make a living exposing his false teaching? Great post. I think I did a post a while back about his book (DOI), but it’s been a while. Do you know of any mainstream evangelical critics of Hagee?

  7. this is an article that I found about 5 months ago. I thought it was a good article on Hagee and Cufi. It is quite long and I have no knowledge about the website. so please delete if not acceptable.

  8. Hi Jerry…

    I’ve come across many MANY Christian bloggers who have written articles about the dangerous teachings of Hagee…many of them since the book, in defense of Israel came out last year.

    The well known ministries which also denounced his teachings in that book in particular have been few and far between…Moriel Ministry is one…another is the ministry of Michael Brown. Its interesting that these two well know men of God DID speak out, when in fact they are Jewish believers. Kudos for them!!!!!

    Have you read the statement which was published recently by World Evangelical Alliance? READ IT HERE

    I wondered at the time if this group of Evangelicals made this very public proclamation because of the false teachings of those like Hagee…

    If so im glad, but it will be the first time i’ve seen that a group has…in fact Randy Maugans wrote an article some months back in which he questioned why there was such silence coming from the Evangelical world about Hagees book:

    New Article: The Deafening Silence of the Hagee Heresy by Randy Maugans

    If you’d like to read an excellent article on why Christian Zionism and those behind it are so dangerous, Nathan Pitchford wrote an outstanding one: The Threat of Christian Zionism

    As far as this 6 million dollars Hagee and his CUFI group gave this weekend, as was posted at Peacemakers blog:

    “These CUFI zionists are a strange bunch and indeed very dangerous people in that one cannot reason with them. Hagee and his group have turned the land of Israel and the people of Israel into something to be worshipped. They are zealous, but not for Christ or His Gospel message.

    Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.

    For I bear them record that they a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.

    For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.

    Very recently, there was a severe attack upon a messianic Jewish Pastor’s son in Israel and it is suspected the heredim, or orthodox Jews, are the guilty ones. The Israeli government has turned its head and looked the other way, as messianic Jews are considered traitors in Israel.

    It is reported that CUFI or the Int’l Fellowship of Christian and Jews and all of the other secular money raising groups for Israel in the name of Christian does not give one penny to the needy Jewish believers in Jesus Christ in Israel.”

  9. Thanks Milinda!

    Its funny you’d post the link to We Hold these Truths, because its one of the few news org i check out periodically to find out what is happening with the Christians in Gaza. You’ll find it very very hard to locate many Christian news org’s or websites which report anything at all about Christians in Gaza or any where else in the middle-east….WHTT does…

    Most Christians here in America appear to not care about brothers and sisters in Christ caught up in the troubles in the middle east–
