Throughout America and in other white nations, Christians and Jews are steadily forming alliances. A quick internet search will show conferences, meetings, and dialogue between Jews and Christians.
Preachers used to point out to their congregations that America was built on Christian principles. Now, without hesitation they tell their flock that America was built on Judeo-Christian ideals.
Without thought Christian leaders – liberal, mainstream, and fundamentalists – talk of the Judeo-Christian foundation of America and encourages the following of Judeo – Christian values and morals.
To use the term Judeo/Christian is much like saying clean filth. Filth is not clean and Judaism is not Christian
Just recently the majority of the world mourned the death of the Pope. His biggest accomplishment was noted to be his bringing together of Jews and Christians. Yet many Popes in ancient times warned against the teachings of the Jews.
Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, John Hague, Jack Van Empe and dozens more like them have built their mega sized ministries by promoting Israel as a political state and the Jews as a chosen race. Thousands of local church leaders are following this example. They are the Pharisees of today
A marketing plan by TouchPoint Solutions, a Colorado Springs consulting agency hired by Israel’s Ministry of Tourism, describes how to appeal to U.S. evangelicals.
Persuading the top 30 evangelical Zionists, through face-to-face meetings, to visit and promote Israel. Those named in a separate TouchPoint document, “Who are the Christian Zionists?” include religious broadcaster Jerry Falwell, Christian Coalition founder Pat Robertson, Texas pastor John Hagee, best-selling author Tim LaHaye
Sending a letter to the 100,000 largest evangelical churches and a postcard to 350,000 others, directing them to Israel’s tourism Web site, GoIsrael.com.
Conducting “Israel Solidarity Days” in 100 cities. Public prayer ceremonies will focus on Israel and its biblical importance. Privately, local evangelical leaders — whether pastors, business people or athletes — will be urged to make “solidarity trips” to Israel. Some will have their expenses paid by Israel.
“The idea is to sell the sellers,” TouchPoint President Butch Maltby said, adding that the multimillion dollar marketing plan has been agreed upon in principle, with certain aspects dependent on funding by the Knesset, the Israeli parliament. Maltby described tourism as more than an economic matter. “It’s also a political tool. Every person that comes to Israel becomes an ambassador to Israel. Every tourist becomes a public relations person.”
At a recent meeting at the Israeli embassy in Washington – 18 national evangelical leaders received the book “Why Christians Should Support Israel,” by Richard Booker, a Texas-based Christian minister.
The embassy’s officer for inter-religious affairs, led a discussion of how Christian college students could lead pro-Israel events on campus and says Israel is reaching out more than ever in the United States. She said, “There’s a new realization that we can activate the Christian grass roots,”
The Pharisees Jesus denounced have not gone away. Some are Christian Pharisees and some are Jewish.
The noun “Pharisee” occurs, according to Strongs’ Concordance, 78 times in the New Testament, much more frequently than “Satan.” Yet usage of the word has been largely eliminated from teaching in many Bibles studies, the pulpits of America’s churches, professing Christian media and even seminaries.
WEBSTER DEFINES PHARISEE: “One of the members of a school or party among the ancient Jews noted for the strict formal observance of the rites and validity of traditions of the elders.” Further on: “Pharisee interpretation provided the standard of observation and belief for the great majority of the Jews from the 1st Century A.D.” Pharisaic: “Hypocritical, self righteous and censorious of others” — Webster’s New International Dictionary of the English Language, 2nd Edition, 1950.
Webster’s definition is an accurate one. Pharisees were in conflict with Jesus whenever they met.
Followers of Christ confronted the Pharisees repeatedly. The followers of the “traditions of the elders” were Jewish and the traditions themselves were perversions of God’s law that came about during the days of mingling during the Bablyon captivity.
These traditions are now known as the “Talmud.” Pharisaism is no longer exclusively Jewish, as it once may have been.
Many patriots who are called haters and anti-Semites will point out the enormous Jewish control of America’s political parties, news media and the banking system. However, so-called Christian leaders will say these people are being intolerant of God’s people. While the Bible firmly tells us that the only way to the Father is through Christ – the false preaches of today would have us believe that the only way to God is through the Jews.
Bernard Lazare, Jewish/Marxist writer (and author of the Communist song Internationale) in his book “Anti-Semitism” on page 350 wrote in 1894 “The Jew is not satisfied with de-Christianizing, he destroys Catholic or Protestant faiths, he provokes indifference but he imposes his idea of the world, of morals and of life upon those whose faith he ruins. He works at his age old task, the annihilation of the religion of Christ!”
The American Jewish Committee, an arm of the ADL put out a policy paper in the 50’s called FACTS
Here are a few statements:
“There is a pressing need for intensive work with textbook and study materials utilized in public schools and colleges of this country.”
They are upset because”many of the accounts of the crucifixion in world histories are too general to be fully accurate, and some provide a basis for the development of prejudice against the Jews”
An example of this can be seen in the hysteria that resulted when the movie The Passion produced by Mel Gibson was released. Jews around the world threw up their arms and cried that the movie would foster a new round of defamation, hatred, and anti-Semitism. Yet, the movie clearly was not anti-Jewish in any form. It did accusatively portray the Jewish hand in the murder of Christ. Yet, it was pretty benign. The Romans were made out to be the real villains. This only goes to show how hyper-sensitive the Jews are. A mere mention of Jews can get one labeled a hater and bigot.
Continuing statements by the AJC in FACTS:
“Under the auspices of Drew Theological Seminary, we have conducted an exhaustive study of religious textbooks currently used in Protestant schools. Errors, misstatements and misconceptions of the historic role of the Jews in the earliest days of Christianity have been and will continue to be tabulated and brought to the attention of Protestant educators and textbook publishers. As a result of new insights gained through these efforts, there has been steady and significant progress in the elimination of such material”.
“In extensive educational campaigns, such as those conducted in behalf of the Genocide convention, civil rights, etc., these activities multiply: up to date fact sheets are continuously prepared for editors, newscasters, organization leaders, etc. favorable opinions of influential citizens are publicized, cooperating organizations are contacted and frequently serviced with specially prepared materials, radio programs are arranged. We work with and through the major national organizations and special interest groups in which millions of Americans are active; labor unions, veterans organizations, youth groups, church groups, and education associations.”
The very fact that the term Judeo/Christian is in popular use today is evidence that Christianity has indeed become intertwined with Judaism. The Christianity taught in the seminaries and as a result the churches can no longer be accurately called Christianity. And yet 99% of those who call them selves born-again Christians see nothing wrong with interfaith conferences of Jews and Christians and now believe that Judaism and Christianity share the same goals and beliefs.
The followers of today’s post Christian faith declare they are believers of Jesus Christ. But what kind of Jesus do they believe in. Most misinterpret the scripture John 3:15″That whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have eternal life“. The Jews believe in Jesus – that is they believe in the existence of a man named Jesus who is their adversary. But to have a belief in Jesus and to believe upon Jesus means to stand for the same principles he stood for. Very few Christians today believe or stand for the principles that Christ stood for.
Are those who”believe” in Jesus following the teachings of Christ or the teachings of the Jews.
Do the Jews follow the laws of Moses? The law – that Christ came to fulfill?
According to the Glossary of the 1952-1961 printing of the Soncino Talmud – the Torah is the oral law of the Jews – not to be confused with the written law of Moses
Often, when a patriot mentions to an acquaintance that the Talmud is the Jewish Holy book – they are often times sure you are wrong – maybe in ancient times – but not in this new enlightened age – they think.
Rabbi Michael Rodkinson says that,”the Talmud is one of the wonders of the world … It still dominates the minds of a whole people, who venerate its contents as divine truth”
The late Dr. Joseph H. Hertz – the Chief Rabbi of the British Empire had this to say about the Talmud:
“Religion in the Talmud attempts to penetrate the whole of human life with the sense of law and right. Nothing human is in its eyes mean or trivial; everything is regulated and sanctified by religion. Religious precept and duty accompany man from his earliest years to the grave and beyond it. They guide his desires and actions at every moment. Food and sleep, civic duty and family life — all are under discipline of the Torah, a discipline accepted freely and joyfully. While every religion attempts such regulation, the Talmudic system represents this striving of the religious idea in its perfection. ‘In our eyes,’ says Arsène Darmsteter, ‘this is its greatest title to the respect and consideration of thinkers. In Judaism we have thus the complete, and consequently the most perfect, expression of the religious idea.”
Now let us turn to Rabbi Dr. Jacob Neusner, a contemporary and prolific writer on Judaism:
“The Bavli [Babylonian Talmud] has formed the definitive statement of Judaism from the time of its closure to the present day. The excellence of its composition, the mastery and authority of those who everywhere studied it and advocated its law, the sharpness of its exegesis and discussion, the harmonious and proportional presentation of all details, these virtues of taste and intellect may well have secured for the document is paramount position … The Bavli served from its closure as an encyclopedia of knowledge and as a summation of the theology and law of Judaism.”
The late great American Protestant writer Elizabeth Kirkpatrick Dilling, author of The Plot Against Christianity among other books makes this point about the Talmud:
Pictured below is Elizabeth Dilling. She passed away in 1967. She was a nationally known author, speaker, and organizer. She was considered an expert on Communism and Judaism.
Elizabeth Kirkpatrick Dilling
“The Babylonian Talmud is the law for so-called Judaism. However, its pornographic, anti-Gentile and anti-Christian doctrines have often caused hostility against it. … The Bible under Talmudic Judaism is considered to be a collection of simple tales fit only for fools, women and children. The Talmud “sages” thus must find new meanings in it by letter and number tricks which reverse the plain meaning and create out of it the permission to do otherwise forbidden crimes and misdeeds. The words of the Bible are continually misused and misquoted for purposes of blasphemy and reversal. Stealing for themselves the title of “Israelites,” the Talmud “sages” teach that “God made a covenant with Israel only for the sake of that which was transmitted orally.” And the Biblical “basis” of this is given as Exodus 34:27. But that verse states, instead: “And the Lord said unto Moses, Write thou these words: for after the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with thee and with Israel” — the opposite! The Talmudic reversal of Moses’ written words are said to have been transmitted “orally,” and through Moses himself — believe it”
The Talmud is essentially the legal ramblings of Jews – who do not follow the Laws of God as given to Moses – but rather discuss – in usually obscene and pornographic detail what they think the laws mean. Their decisions then becomes”The LAW”
Rabbi Dr. Hertz says of the Talmud:
“The knowledge of the contents of that revelation, they [the scribes] held, was to be found in the first Instance in the Written Text of the Pentateuch; but the revelation, the real Torah, was the meaning of that Written Text, the Divine thought therein disclosed, as unfolded in ever greater richness of detail by successive generations of devoted teachers”
In Judaism, divine revelation is not dependent on messiahs, prophets, or saints, as in some other religions; for the Jews, divine revelation comes about through rabbis passing down the teachings from one generation to the next.
Rabbi Reinsaltz says:
“Talmudic scholarship is to a certain extent self-contradictory, a type of “sacred-intellectualism.” It places unparalleled emphasis on the theoretical, analytical, and critical aspects of human thought. No individual can study the Talmud without being or becoming an eternal skeptic; the form of study itself is based on a series of questions, and the student himself is expected to submit his own questions and voice his own doubts and problems … The questioning, searching, and skeptical man is not excluded from the circle of believers; he becomes, rather, the spokesman of the central work of the Jewish religion, the prime source daily conduct“.
Jewish Law becomes God’s Law!
When Jews speak of God’s laws and stand up in the public forum and speak so righteously of God’s laws – Christians must understand what that really means. They are not referring to the laws God gave Moses.
The Laws they make up become known as God’s laws!
Rabbi Dr. Isidore Epstein, (below) editor of the Soncino Talmud translated in England in 1935, states:
“the Talmudic legal system is tantamount to the very law of God. The sequence is clear: Once the laws are tested and pass the test, they become the law of God: Thus the object of the legal system was not to preserve a particular dynasty or a certain form of government, but to establish social righteousness, and to maintain thereby a constant, close, inseparable connection between ethics and law, both flowing from the same Divine source … All laws, regulations and enactments had authority only in so far as they were able to stand the ethical test of the Torah. Once they passed this test, they were no longer regarded as man-made, but became identified with the very law of God.”
Still – Professed Christians will say,”I’m a tolerant Christian. If the Jews want to believe the Talmud – and even if they are Pharisees – it has no effect on me.
The Jewish influence is having a direct influence on society by the adoption of Humanism and Humanistic practices in the legislative, judicial, and executive branches of government.
Supreme Court Considers Talmudic Law
In December 1999, the United States Supreme Court set a precedent by accepting for consideration an amicus curiae brief in a death penalty case (Bryan v. Moore). Aside from mentioning the Eighth Amendment of the US Constitution in passing, the brief was based wholly on Talmud law. The Jewish Journal reports:
“A man who will argue before the U.S. Supreme Court next year that his planned execution in Florida’s electric chair constitutes “cruel and unusual punishment” can point to a 2,000-year-old Jewish law when he pleads his case.
A friend-of-the court brief filed last week in the Supreme Court by the National Jewish Commission on Law and Public Affairs, which advocates the position of the Orthodox community, and the American Section of the International Association of Jewish Lawyers and Jurists, backs Anthony Bryan’s position. In citing only Jewish law and excluding any reference to previous Supreme Court decisions, the brief is believed to mark a first for America’s highest court.
Rabbi Yitzchok Adlerstein is the director of Project Next Step of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles and a professor of Jewish Law and Ethics at Loyola Law School. Rabbi Adlerstein comments upon a 1999 brief submitted to the US Supreme Court concerning the death penalty. The brief, based wholly on Talmud law, urged that certain principles of Talmud law should be adopted by the US. Interpreting the remarks Orthodox advocate Nathan Lewin, Rabbi Adlerstein writes: ‘Lewin builds his case on the strength of what likely is the world’s oldest continuously-practiced legal code. He holds up the performance of Florida’s temperamental electric chair to the scrutiny of the Jewish Talmud, the backbone of Jewish law for the last two millennia.… Lewin’s essential point is that many of the pressing moral, ethical, and legal issues that are front-burner today were already painstakingly and lovingly considered by savants of the past. Jewish law in particular surprises and delights moderns, because it not only suggests solutions, but teaches how complex moral issues can be attacked and dissected. Within its ancient legal code are deep and detailed considerations of issues like privacy, allocating medical resources, the causes of violence, (humanism) and many more. So much of the future stands to be illuminated by the minds of those who specialized in pondering deeply and subtly.
US Supreme Court Warms to the Talmud
Approximately three years after Nathan and Alyza Lewin led the Bryan v. Moore amicus curiae brief another notable event took place. A kosher dinner was held to honor the establishment of the National Institute for Judaic Law (NIJL). The dinner was attended by 200 people, including Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Stephen Breyer, Antonin Scalia. Nathan and Alyza Lewin also attended.
The site of the dinner? The United States Supreme Court Building in Washington, DC. (The same Supreme Court that Refused to Intervene in the murder of Terry Shiavo – which in light of Jewish law makes sense – the woman or wife is considered without worth – A Jewish prayer says- ‘thank god I’m not a slave, a dog or a woman’ and has no value in life)
The Jewish Week reported the event in this manner:
“What does the Talmud have to say about legal and moral controversies in modern America? Plenty, according to the creators of the new Washington-based National Institute for Judaic Law, which opened with a lavish Supreme Court dinner last month. Rabbi Noson Gurary (below) said that the idea for the institute came in an exchange of letters in which Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, one of the most conservative Justices, expressed his”fascination with Jewish law.” That was an example of the Judiazation of the Judicial branch – Now for the Legislative branch:
Here is an excerpt from the 1991 Congressional declaration concerning the Noahide Laws:
Whereas Congress recognizes the historical tradition of ethical values and principles which are the basis of civilized society and upon which our great Nation was founded; Whereas these ethical values and principles have been the bedrock of society from the dawn of civilization, when they were known as the Seven Noahide Laws;
Whereas in tribute to this great spiritual leader, `the rebbe’, this, his ninetieth year will be seen as one of `education and giving’, the year in which we turn to education and charity to return the world to the moral and ethical values contained in the Seven Noahide Laws; be it Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That March 26, 1991, the start of the ninetieth year of Rabbi Menachem Schneerson, leader of the worldwide Lubavitch movement, is designated as `Education Day, U.S.A.’. — US Congress, HR 104 Public Law 102-14
WHITE HOUSE RECEPTION (Executive Branch)
Reported in Haaretz [Israeli newspaper], March 26, 2002, as quoted by The Jewish Tribal Review
“U.S. President George W. Bush hosted a delegation of 10 leading rabbis and officials from the Lubavitch Hasidic movement at the White House yesterday. The 90-minute meeting took place in the framework of events organized by the movement to mark the 100th birthday of the late Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson . . . Bush added his signature to a document declaring the late Rebbe’s birthday ‘The day of education and charity.’ [Avraham] Rabbi Shem-Tov thanked the president for his support of Israel and presented him with a Passover Haggadah.”
Noahide laws are said to be seven verbal laws given by Noah to his sons – all non Jews are bound to obey them and of course their rambling conclusions.
The Jewish Laws – laws of the Pharisees and the Noahide laws – all compiled in the Talmud have received recognition by the President, the Supreme court and Congress!
How are non Jews to be treated under these laws? And what dismantling do the Jews wish to do to our long standing rule of law based upon Christianity and the laws given to our Israelite ancestors – to which modern Jews have no relation?
Death Penalty for Celebrating Christmas?
This past Christmas season the steady campaign against Christmas was without end. Corporations were telling their employees that they couldn’t wish anyone a Merry Christmas. School children were no longer allowed to sing Christmas carols in holiday pageants. Nativity scenes were taken down in cities across America. Lawsuits were filed by Jewish led groups such as the ADL, the JDL, and the ACLU to stop the celebration of Christmas in any public arena. The Jews simply do not want any reminder of Jesus and as commercialized as Christmas has become it still remains a day – whether the accurate date of Christ’s birth or not – to celebrate the coming of the redeemer. Jewish capitalists love the money made during the season, but hate the reason for the season.
One Jewish website offered leaflets to be purchased at 15 cents each for Jews to distribute among the Jewish community. The title of the leaflet was,”An end to Christmas and Off with their Heads!”
Why? You may ask would they even suggest the death for those celebrating Christmas? Because, according to the Jews, Christians are idol worshippers. The website went on further to explain why the Torah obligates all Jews in this campaign. And under that exact statement. They tell fellow Jews:
“…according to the known Jewish ruling that Christians are idol worshippers.” (Likkutei Sichos 37:198)
A gentile…is liable for the death penalty…if he has invented a religious holiday for himself (Rambam Mishne Torah—Hilchos Melachim 10:9)
Christianity is Heresy According to Jews
In Judaism for Everyone published in 2002, Rabbi Boteach begins by stating:”This book is written in the belief that the next thousand years will be a Jewish millennium. For the first time in its long and trying history, the world’s oldest monotheistic faith is going mainstream.”
On page 401 of Judaism for Everyone Rabbi Boteach (below) says that Jews condemn Christianity as the Ultimate Heresy. “Certain beliefs have been deeply ingrained engrained into the Jewish psyche for so many thousands of years, that even the most secular and disinterested of Jews accept them as axiomatic. Foremost among these is the simple belief that no man could ever be God.”
For Jews the belief that God can be human is the ultimate heresy. The belief that God could have been born of a human womb, or could once have walked the earth, is so foreign to Judaism that it is rejected even by the most assimilated Jews. Christianity, however, sees in Jesus the incarnation and embodiment of the son of God.
He continues his attacks upon Jesus and quotes from the Talmud
1) He and his disciples practiced sorcery and black magic, led Jews astray into idolatry, and were sponsored by foreign, gentile powers for the purpose of subverting Jewish worship (Sanhedrin 43a).
2) He was sexually immoral, had sex with his donkey, worshipped statues of stone (a brick is mentioned), was cut off from the Jewish people for his wickedness, and refused to repent (Sanhedrin 107b; Sotah 47a).
3) He learned witchcraft in Egypt and, to perform miracles, used procedures that involved cutting his flesh — which is also explicitly banned in the Bible (Shabbos 104b).
4) Mary, the mother of Jesus, was a prostitute and whore.
Rabbi Boteach says,”The false, rebellious message of Jesus has been thoroughly rejected by the vast majority of the Jewish people, as G-d commanded. Unfortunately, however, this same message has brought a terrible darkness upon the world; today, over 1.5 billion gentiles believe in Jesus. These lost souls mistakenly think they have found salvation in Jesus; tragically, they are in for a rude awakening. Truth and eternal life are found directly from G-d, through performing His Law.” ( their filthy law)
‘The secular governments construct and maintain many public works for the general welfare, ranging from bridges and highways to court systems. Just as Jewish individuals can derive benefit from bridges and other public works of the secular governments, so too should the Jewish community as a whole make fair use of the secular justice systems in order to maintain and enforce Jewish laws and principles.”
Now we can also understand why, in 1964, the Reeb Shneerson so praised by Bush and Congress (Reeb: the term Jews intimately call their Rabbi’s) wrote that intermarriage between Jews and Gentiles was “spiritual cremation” for Jews, while at the same time organized Jewry was urging forced integration between Gentiles of different races.
He said,”One race/religion will be permitted to survive, and that is the race/religion of the Jews. All Gentiles must lose their sense of belonging to a distinct race, owning a distinct culture, owning a distinct history, and practicing a distinct religion. The Gentiles must be homogenized” made into one race.
“In simple terms, we are at war. It is not a struggle merely for power, wealth, or some other material advantage; it is a titanic clash over the future of world civilization. The world must now choose, for all time, between the eternal holiness of the Messianic kingdom—for which Jews have tirelessly worked for thousands of years—and the utter nihilism of the darkest evil ever to threaten the planet. This war has already spread into every nation, every social institution, every human activity. It has thus become a world war in the ultimate sense.
“Upon seizing the reins of government, the new leaders will move quickly to implement a full agenda of reform. Jewish courts (the batei dini of the rabbis) will be granted full legal sovereignty over Jewish citizens within each country, who will no longer be subject to the authority of gentile courts. The pre-existing judges and courts will replace the existing court system of each country, and the legal code will be drastically rewritten to conform to halacha .”(Jewish law)
Our Duty as Christians
We must remember the words of Paul”For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake“. Titus 1: 10-11
Then Paul told Titus to warn the Cretians in verses 13-16″Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith; not giving heed to Jewish fables, and comandments of men, that turn from the truth. Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure: but even their mind and conscience is defiled. They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.”
Scripture warns us against forming alliances with unbelievers of all kinds”Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of man, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.” (Collosians. 2:8)
While we know that final victory is in the hands of the Lord, there are actions we must take: Because darkness cannot exit where light prevails. We must send these messages to our brothers and sisters because we are promised that His word will not return void – they will have the effect that is intended – in his time table not ours.
Our message is not to scare to a point of paralysis and fear – for fear of the Lord is the only fear we should have. Our message to send and the action that we likewise must take is stated in II Cor. 6:14-17″Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? Or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? Wherefore (is the message we must act out and send to others which is a warning and of course a fulfillment of our responsibility as latter day watchmen) Come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord”.
