Recently the established online Christianity Today news magazine came out quite boldly to protest President Trump’s executive order to halt the immigration of “refugees.” (See my previous article.) Now over “500 conservative evangelical pastors and leaders representing all 50 states” urge President Trump “to reverse temporary ban.” (Source: ChristianityToday.com)
These “Christian” leaders are lining up with God-hating, Bible-hating, Christian-hating liberals. Why?? I’ll tell you why. It’s their Judeo-Christian theology. But before I get into that subject, let me offer a few excerpts from these so-called “Christian” pastors and leaders.
What They Said
More than 100 of them (now more than 3,000) published an “open letter” in a full-page ad in The Washington Post. They include: “Tim Keller and Max Lucado… Kathy Keller, Willow Creek’s Bill and Lynne Hybels, authors Stuart and Jill Briscoe, author Ann Voskamp, Southern Baptist seminary president Daniel Akin, and pastors Joel Hunter and Derwin Gray… Fuller Seminary’s Richard Mouw, the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities’ Shirley Hoogstra, Open Doors USA’s David Curry, the Christian Community Development Association’s John Perkins and Noel Castellanos, the National Latino Evangelical Coalition’s Gabriel Salguero, The Wesleyan Church’s Jo Anne Lyon, the NAE’s Leith Anderson, and World Relief’s past president Stephan Bauman,” among others.
Here is what the letter said in part:
“As Christian pastors and leaders, we are deeply concerned by the recently announced moratorium on refugee resettlement… We have a historic call expressed over 2,000 years to serve the suffering. We cannot abandon this call now…. We live in a dangerous world and affirm the crucial role of government in protecting us from harm and in setting the terms on refugee admissions. However, compassion and security can coexist, as they have for decades. For the persecuted and suffering, every day matters; every delay is a crushing blow to hope.” – Ibid.
One of the signatories, Lynn Hybels, commented in another “related press release”:
“For some people, embracing refugees is a political issue. For me, as a Christian, speaking up for and caring for refugees is more an act of worship and obedience to a God whose Kingdom is global and whose ‘mercies are new every morning.’ ” – Ibid., (my emphasis)
God’s Kingdom is global? No, that is NOT biblically correct – at all!
Apparently, and thank God, according to Pew Research Center, 67% of White evangelicals “believe that America does not have a moral responsibility to accept Syrian refugees.” – Ibid.
These ignorant Christian pastors and leaders are out of step with almost two-thirds of the everyday Christians.
Back to Theology
What is the reasoning of these well-educated “Christian” pastors and leaders? Why do they so passionately support refugees and foreign immigration? It’s their Judeo-Christian theology. In other words, their theology comes from Judaism and Jewish theology which they falsely believe is the basis for Christianity. Judaism is based on the Talmud which comes out of Babylon. I discuss and document this in my book, Identifying Biblical Israel Today.
Let me give you some quotes about this Jewified Christian theology as the foundation for an all-inclusive, multi-racial and integrated America:
“We affirm that the object of Judaism is not political nor national, but spiritual, and addresses itself to the continuous growth of peace, justice and love in the human race, to a messianic time when all men will recognize that they form ‘one great brotherhood’ for the establishment of God’s kingdom on earth.” – Alison Weir, Against Our Better Judgment, p. 95 quoting the 1897 Central Conference of American Rabbis resolution. (Sounds like Lynne Hybels.)
“The great ideal of Judaism is not that Jews shall be allowed to flock together one day in some hole-in-the-corner fashion, for, if not tribal, at any rate separatist objects but that the whole world shall be imbued with Jewish teachings, and that in a universal Brotherhood of Nations—a greater Judaism, in fact—all the separate races and religions shall disappear …” – The Jewish World of London, February 9, 1883
“The egalitarian tendencies of Jewish religion and life fostered democratic feelings at all times … In the 19th cent., the Jews of Europe … threw their weight everywhere on the side of democracy. They were thus active in movements of this period, both ‘revolutionary’ and constitutional, to secure the establishment of democratic government in all countries.” – The New Standard Jewish Encyclopedia, 5th Ed., Geoffrey Wigoder, Editor, p. 541
“But the tents of Shem [Jews according to Waton] are communism, internationalism, democracy, the equality of the races, nations and peoples, the universal brotherhood of man … Two of the great sins of Judaism and the Jews are communism and internationalism … And it is to the greatest credit of Judaism and the Jews that they are identified with communism and inter-nationalism. – Harry Waton, A Program for the Jews and an Answer to All Anti-Semites, p. 74
Historically, it is well-known among researchers that the Jews have been the driving force behind non-White immigration in America. I discuss this in my book, The Greatest Deception of Our Time.
But the point I want to make is that this Jewish theology has now been swallowed hook, line and sinker by Judeo-Christians. Everyone is equal, there is no such thing as race – just the “human race.” There is no biblical reason to justify racial separation – they say. The gospel applies to all – they say. Anything less than racial equality and integration is “hate” and “sin.”
So with that theology, let’s welcome everybody into America. Better than that – let’s have no borders.
Forget Those “Christian” Pastors and Leaders
My response? This theology is false and NOT biblically, historically, or scientifically based AT ALL!
These pastors and leaders are leading God’s ordained Covenant People astray. The People must get educated and start learning the truth about what the Bible says and means. Why?
Because there is little hope for the popular, high-minded deceptively “conservative evangelical” leaders. And there is nothing, and I mean nothing, worse and more destructive to America and God’s Kingdom plan and purpose than false “Christian” pastors and leaders. I’d rather have non-Christian liberals any day of the week oppose the truth than these religious serpents and vipers.
P.S. By the way, do you want to know what is going on in Bulgaria with the Afghan refugees there? Watch this.
