role in the end of history, its adherents tend to treat Israelis and Palestinians not
as neighbors to be loved, but as pawns in a cosmic drama of divine vengeance and
retribution. The conclusion of this drama involves the death of all non-Christians,
including Jews, through apocalyptic warfare or divine judgment. Given these
beliefs, even many Jews wonder if the movement promotes proper Jewish-
Christian relationships and question the nature of the movement’s support for
innovations in Christian doctrine. The most prominent spokesperson for these
beliefs was John Nelson Darby (1800-1882). Although the advocates of Christian
Zionism and its underlying theology sometimes claim to base their beliefs on
ancient understandings, generally scholars recognize these to be recent
American evangelicals. This is not so. Many evangelicals in the US do not want to
be identified as ideological Christian Zionists. Several prominent evangelical
spokespersons have spoken out strongly against this ideology, recognizing how it
contradicts the central commitments of Christianity to justice and peace-making.
Many question its theological assumptions.
the influence of Christian Zionism on US public opinion. It
grieves the member communions of the National Council of
the Churches of Christ in the USA to note that many
Christians visiting the land of Jesus’ birth, death, and
resurrection are not even aware of the existence of Arab
Christians, and do not have opportunities to interact with
local Christian communities. One step toward addressing this
concern is for Christians in the West to become better aware
of Christian Zionism and its effects, including the history,
theology, and forms of biblical interpretation underlying this
ideology. Please take the time to learn what this movement
is all about, get involved, and continue to “pray for the
peace of Jerusalem” (Psalm 122:6).
when it is perpetuated through the appropriation of Christian theology for
ideological purposes. One such misappropriation is commonly referred to as
designates any Christian support for the national revival movement of the Jewish
people realized through the establishment of the modern State of Israel
(historically known as Zionism). More narrowly defined, Christian Zionism is an
ideology grounded in beliefs which consider the State of Israel to be divinely
ordained and scripturally determined with a central role in ushering in the end of
history, where unconverted Jews and unbelievers (including Christians who are
considered to be of questionable status) are judged by God’s wrath. It is the
narrower form that causes immediate concern.
Zionism raises concerns for the member communions of the National Council of the
Churches of Christ in the USA. Among these are the following:
committed to preserving control over all of historic Palestine for Jewish people
alone, including the West Bank and Gaza strip, to ensure the realization of the
movement’s own end-times hopes. This ideological approach rejects any peace
process built on a negotiated settlement towards a two-state solution to the
conflict. Leading advocates of this ideology have formed themselves into
oftentimes very public and well-funded political action groups whose aim is to
prevent any negotiations that may lead to a two-state solution to the conflict.
stereotypes of Muslims and Middle Easterners, including Middle Eastern Christians.
They often accuse these Christians of siding with Muslims against the US and the
State of Israel in a cosmic battle of good and evil, thus questioning their Christian
faithfulness. Rather than fostering understanding and cooperation with neighbors,
ideological Christian Zionism often teaches Christians in the US to harbor suspicion
and enmity towards Muslims and non-westernized Christians. When it does so, the
movement negates Christ’s command to love our neighbors as ourselves (Matthew

I am sure by now everyone Knows about Westboro Baptist Church. I found out about these fake ass christians over a year ago. the Assholes have been doing this crap for years to get attention, now thanks to the supreme court, they have national attention. Hey, Westboro, God Hates you!
Fred Phelps is the leader of this three-ring circus. Fred you are wrong, god doesnt hate Fags. God Hates as assholes. These Kind of Christian extremist are everywhere in this country, Quite a lot of them have blogs on wordpress.Haters, of not Just Homosexuals, But of Evil things like Islam, freedom, liberals, education, and the working class.
Find something to hate and I guarantee, someone will find a way to twist scripture to Justify it. This is not what Jesus taught. He didnt say to hate everyone, Jesus preached love. Before you go around telling everyone that they are going to hell, take a look in the mirror(which might be difficult fo fred). Fred doesn’t know any better saying he was probably born before the civil war. Seriously, how old is this hater.
Some one should start a new campaign: God hates assholes
Ever since I was a child, I realized people were idiots. But int the past ten years the IQ of the United states has taken a plumet. I rember when I could relax knowing that Rush Limbaugh was the dumbest right winger in the media. Now we have mental midgets like Bill O’riely and Glen Beck. But, that’s not all there are entire “news” networks populated with i.diots. Peolpe with there stupid “Comunists are taking over the country” conspirracy theories. It’s like a flash back from the 1950s and the Mccarthy hearings. Sorry to tell you this Glenn, but the country has already been taken over by Fascist morons. Acording to Glen beck the Comunists are co conspiring with the “Islamo-fascists”.
This kind of rubbish is spreading like wild fire. Idiotic theories as Obama being a a Muslim Socialist/comunist who was born in Kenya. What? First of all, republican’s do not realize that comunism and socialism are two different things. Second of all there are countries that thrive under socialism, Evil nations such as Switzerland and The netherlands. Wach out, the Swiss are going to take over the world. thirdly, WTF!!!!
No form of media is safe from these Blubbering Idiots. Blogging has also Become Moronpublican territory.One of these Idiots in particular Is Michael Stollaire, who’s entire blog here on word press is deticated to the Idea that the Evil comunist democrates are leading the country in to ruin. Exactly how are they doing that Michael, by cleaning up the messes that republicans have made? Any one who doesn’t make the Rich richer and the poor porrer, is a communist in the eyes of Republicans. The thing is , I would take communism over Fascist corporate bullshit any day. Why don’t You guys just be Honest why you dont like Obama, he’s Black, and he puts limits on your evil ass corporations.
Please do me a favor and grow a brain.
It has been a little over a week since the most teriffying experience of my life. Even though I came out of it with out a scratch, It has psychologicaly damaged me. Let’s keep in mind that we are not talking about a fender bender. This was a bad accident, I got hit and my car spun. My vehicle was totaled. If My vehicle wasn’t an SUV, I probably would have been dead. It doesnt help that nobody knows what really happened, and they will most likely blame the less experienced driver, which is me, even though me and the other car were probably both hit by hit and run driver. I am falling apart, and every one is telling me to get over it and be a man.
