Its that time of year again–time for CUFI and its leader, false teacher John Hagee to ‘alight’ on Washington DC. Many get upset with me when I refer to him as a false teacher, but any man who claims to be a pastor and preacher of the Gospel and withholds preaching that Gospel to a certain ethnic group for not only political reasons but for reasons based on his own private false interpretation of scripture, is a sham in my book. And that’s John Hagee.
“I believe that every Jewish person who lives in the light of the Torah, which is the word of God, has a relationship with God and will come to redemption”
“I’m not trying to convert the Jewish people to the Christian faith. In fact, trying to convert Jews is a ‘waste of time. The Jewish person who has his roots in Judaism is not going to convert to Christianity. They (already) have a faith structure. Everyone else, whether Buddhist or Baha’i, needs to believe in Jesus, he says. But not Jews. Jews already have a covenant with God that has never been replaced by Christianity” source PFO
From the Jerusalem Post: Evangelicals back Israel in Washington
Over 4,000 Christians are gathering in Washington this week to advocate for Israel on Capitol Hill.
The fourth annual summit of Christians United for Israel (CUFI) has brought together Christian leaders and supporters of Israel from around the country, starting Monday and continuing through Wednesday.
Founded in 2006 by Pastor John Hagee, the organization is now active in all 50 states and in dozens of countries. Throughout the year it holds local events to educate Christians about Israel, build up their support and raise money for the organization and for charities in Israel.
The Christian Zionist organization cites biblical sources as imperatives for Christians to support and help the Jewish people and the State of Israel.
For the first two days of the conference, participants are learning about issues relating to Israel and the Middle East. They will spend Wednesday lobbying their elected officials on Capitol Hill.
The conference features a wide range of leaders and policy experts, including Israel advocate Gary Bauer and Susan Michael, director of the US Branch of the International Christian Embassy, Jerusalem, as well as some of CUFI’s religious leadership.
Most of the speakers, however, deal with Israel and Judaism.
They include Rabbi Aryeh Scheinberg of San Antonio, Texas; Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi, founder and president of The Israel Project; Congressman Eric Cantor; Malcolm Hoenlein, executive vice chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations; Asaf Shariv, consul-general of Israel in New York; and talk radio host Dennis Prager.
