  • The New Christian Zionism: A Book Review

    01/23/2017 3:36:32 PM PST · by Jandy on Genesis · 9 replies
    Virtueonline ^ | January 21, 2017 | Alice C. Linsley
    The New Christian Zionism is a penetrating look at how Christians have framed conversations about Israel as a people and a land in the 20th century. Contributors to the book include Robert Benne, Craig Blaising, Darrell Bock, Mark S. Kinzer, Shadi Khalloul, Gerald R. McDermott, Robert Nicholson, David Rudolph, Mark Tooley, and Joel Willitts. The writers define the "New Christian Zionism" as a theologically-rooted conviction that Israel has a corporate right to exist "with the same human rights and security guarantees that other nations receive" and that God's plan in the future involves Israel as a national entity and as...

    Sometimes even the most illustrious words can bury the beauty and the deep meaning of a glorious moment—we will attempt to refrain from burying what may have been the most stirring Presidential inauguration in America’s history with too many words. The crowds across the mall were superbly self-controlled and respectful, all standing as a cross section of America’s best.

    Meanwhile the ideal should not be “almost” feeling sorry for them, but organizing a strong resistance to protect America from a Muslim president, forced upon it by the hidden agenda of a so-called Big Women’s March Movement Despite the sea of pink p**sy caps seen on worldwide streets during the Big Women’s’ March yesterday, the pink cap was not the real symbol of the march—the Muslim veil was. The Muslim veil and a hijab made out of the highly revered American flag were the real symbols of the day. There was one march organizer far more worrisome than Mama Michael...

    “You Are My Servant, Israel” (Isaiah 49:1-7) Two weeks ago, for the Baptism of Our Lord, the Old Testament reading was from Isaiah 42, the first of four so-called “Servant Songs” in the second half of Isaiah. “Behold my servant,” Isaiah 42 begins, “my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen, in whom my soul delights; I have put my Spirit upon him; he will bring forth justice to the nations.” And we certainly see Jesus as the fulfillment of that prophecy in his baptism, as he sets out to do the will of his Father, fulfilling all righteousness. The Father...

    Well. It has been 16 years more or less that I have been on FR. My participation began with the contested Bush-Gore election in late 2000. I've seen a lot of debate, a lot of discussion, and a wide palette of points of view from left to right and on many spiritual subjects. I believe the present season, with not just Trump but a new salvational consciousness on the horizon, is an answer from God to the confusion. Anyhow, as the "age of Trump" comes upon us, are there wiser ways to use FR than to chew the fat on...

    WASHINGTON – Kim Clement was known as the “singing prophet” before he died Nov. 23, just 15 days after Donald Trump shocked many by winning the presidency. But if recordings of Clement’s predictions are accurate accounts of what he reportedly said in appearances in 2007, he wouldn’t have been surprised. Audio recordings of “prophecies” reportedly delivered by Clement nine years ago, long before anyone was taking Trump seriously as a presidential candidate, not only predict his successful bid for the White House, they also say he is God’s choice – and will become known as a “prayerful president.” “Trump shall...

Franklin Graham from Friday’s inauguration ceremony. In a press release, CAIR said that Graham was a “notorious Islamophobe” who had no business speaking at the event. “If President-elect Trump truly seeks to unite our nation as he promised in his acceptance speech, he will limit the list of those offering prayers at the inauguration to religious leaders who work to bring us together, not...

This child was one of countless, nameless, faceless children seized, beat, and indoctrinated in Islam, until they become willing “martyrs” and executioners. Known as the “cubs of the caliphate,” they are graduates from “schools [established by ISIS] to prepare hundreds of...

Even though their land mass and fighters are dwindling, their sympathizers and their fundamentalist ideology has spread across the world like a cancer. Islamic extremists in Europe, for instance, have plans to conquer the continent with fundamental Islam to join a future caliphate. They will not, however, wield the sword; pillaging, raping and killing infidels everywhere they go, planting their black flags on every hilltop. Mind you, this is the militant...

    Thanks, Professor Anthony Esolen, for the Real Music book. It's a milestone in a lifelong search for a way out of our cultural exile.Real Music: A Guide to the Timeless Hymns of the Church Hardcover - December 7, 2016 - by Anthony Esolen (Author) Here's Bach's 'soli Deo gloria' watermark.But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33 The issue is re-cast by Bach's fundamental approach: Our liturgical music's problem isn't limited by the idea 'the people won't understand great music', 'they have to hear what they...

    “That’s not who we are,” Barack Obama often says when appealing to Americans to oppose illiberal policies such as torturing prisoners, barring immigrants on the basis of their religion, and denying entry to refugees. But now that Americans have elected a president who has called for precisely those policies, Obama’s confidence about who we are may seem misplaced. Questions about the defining values of our common nationality have haunted us before at critical moments in American history, and now they do again: In the wake of Donald Trump’s election, what does it mean to be an American? Will Trump and...

    Use our massive financial influence to enact positive changes in the United Nations. If that is impossible, we should end the bailouts and invite the United Nations to find another country to call home In the wake of the controversial United Nations Security Council resolution calling for an end to Israeli settlements in the West Bank, the incoming Trump administration should seriously consider ending our annual bailout of this corrupt institution.

    Jordan and Israel were carved out of Transjordan in 1948. Palestine never existed as a state nor was it a part of the Middle East script. Soon to be sidelined Secretary of State John Kerry wasted an hour and a half reinventing history December 28 after the Obama administration’s ambassador to the United Nations disgraced America by abstaining at the security council’s vote on Friday. His moronic remarks aren’t even worth referencing as he attempted to bolster an irredeemable action that endangered Israel’s very existence by pressuring the small state to return to indefensible borders.
  • "On the Eighth Day of Christmas: The Circumcision and Name of Jesus" (Sermon on Luke 2:21)

    “On the Eighth Day of Christmas: The Circumcision and Name of Jesus” (Luke 2:21) On the eighth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me . . . the circumcision and name of Jesus? Huh? What? Yeah, well, that’s what happened on this day. On the eighth day of Christmas, God’s true love gave to me--and to you, to us--the circumcision and name of Jesus. That’s what our text says, the Holy Gospel for this day, Luke 2:21, which reads again as follows, “And at the end of eight days, when he was circumcised, he was called Jesus, the...

    The UN Security Council buried the two-state solution on 23 December 2016. John Kerry delivered the eulogy on 28 December 2016. The Palestine Mandate Solution beckons…. US Secretary of State John Kerry – perhaps unwittingly – has now opened the door to reviving the solution contained in the 1922 League of Nations Mandate for Palestine – one homeland for the Jews and one homeland for the Arabs (“Palestine Mandate Solution”) This solution has already been realised in 95% of the territory of the Mandate with the creation of the Arab State of Jordan in 1946 and the Jewish State of...

    Classic Obama and classic John Kerry - excusing the sins of tyrants and despots while assaulting Israel with dishonest slander. John Kerry is a loathesome man. He has been since Winter Soldier Hearings of the early 1970s, when he publicly accused his fellow Vietnam veterans of horrific atrocities. He was loathesome when he ran for president in 2004 against George W. Bush, and claimed that a U.S. president must pass a "global test" that requires the approval of foreign leaders. (Blessedly, Kerry failed to pass the American test and was rejected by voters.)
