"Most church goers will say they believe the #Bible, but the question is what #Bible?
"If pinned down to specific answers, they will discount the #OldTestament about 90%. They are skeptical of its history & they give no credence to its #miracles. They know only utter confusion as to its #prophecies and they reject its laws as being repudiated by the #NewTestament.
"For their beauty of language, they will accept the #Psalms, those which are not controversial. Any verse is accepted which could not offend even the most #wicked, but they reject all the others which sternly call the #Christian to the duties he wants to evade.
Envie de comprendre la question de #Jerusalem ? C'est par ici.
Il y a 3.000 ans de ça, en -1.000 ans avant JC, donc, Jerusalem est d'abord une ville bâtie par le roi #David (celui du combat contre Goliath), qui en fait la #Capitale du peuple #juif.
C'est son fils #Salomon qui édifie le 1er temple (une énorme Synagogue, en fait).
Le Salomon, c'est celui du bébé qu'il proposait de couper en 2 pour voir qui est sa vraie mère.. pas le Salomon de #Rabbi#Jacob, même si vous l'avez compris : dans les 2 cas, Salomon est juif.
Mais en -586, quatre siècles après sa fondation, les #Babyloniens (ancêtres des #irakiens) menés par leur roi #Nabuchodonosor, envahissent le Royaume juif, détruisent le temple de Jerusalem, et en chassent les #juifs, dont beaucoup
sont utilisés comme #esclaves à Babylone....
//The scribes who had come from Jerusalem said, "He is possessed by Beelzebul," and "By the prince of demons he drives out demons." (Mk 3:22) #Gospel
//Beelzebub or Beelzebul is a name derived from a Philistine god, formerly worshipped in Ekron, and later adopted by some Abrahamic religions as a major demon. The name Beelzebub is associated with the Canaanite god Baal. #demonology#religionen.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beelzebub
"Many years ago, the then president of The National Council of Churches warned that the danger of the great religious awakening taking place in our country, might become fanatical and be carried into our political and business life!
"Perhaps this was a fair assessment, that is, if you conflate #Christian#Zionism with religious awakening. Unfortunately, these "fanatical" #Evangelicals have 0 faith in the #Christian religion to which they give empty lip service--while paying homage to those who hate #Christ.
"For lack of faith in the actual #Bible, #Evangelicals make Scofield’ Notes, (Scofield! A drunkard and a con-man allied with the Satanist, Darby) --#Evangelicals have turned Scofield’s NOTES into a DIABOLICAL FORCE in our #national life.
[...] "The watchman’s task has always been a thankless one.
"There are treacherous fifth column elements, who are really working for the #defeat of the #nation, at the hands of its enemies.
"These subversive elements readily gain and hold the #public’s ear, because they soothingly tell the people what they want to hear. Go back to sleep, no danger can come, and there is nothing you can do.
