(The Jewish Chronicle) So-called “Chrstian-Jewish” dialogue has always been a one-way street where Christians compromise their faith “for fear of the Jews” and walk in lock-step with the anti-Christs who find Christianity “offensive” to their Jewish occult “beliefs”:
“The Chief Rabbi Sir Ephraim Mirvis has hailed a new document on Jewish-Christian relations produced jointly with the Church of Scotland as an “important step forward”.
The 85-page Jewish-Christian Glossary marks the progress made from a decade ago when a previous paper issued by the Church that challenged the Jewish claim to Israel caused an outcry among the Jewish community.
Writing in the foreword of the new Glossary, Sir Ephraim – who is due to address the Church of Scotland Assembly on Wednesday – referred to “a valuable advance between our respective communities”.
He wrote, “While we still have a long road to travel to understand each other more fully, and especially to better comprehend our theological approaches to Land and Covenant, an important step forward has now been taken.”
The Reverend Sally Foster-Fulton, Moderator of the Church of Scotland, acknowledged that “great hurt was caused to the Jewish community” by the previous paper – entitled “The Inheritance of Abraham?” – in 2013.
“We have chosen to find new ways to bring ourselves closer, we have chosen to sit side by side and discuss, not only what unites us, but to engage with what potentially divides,” she said. “That is a brave outworking of love in real life, and it is being a blessing to the nations.”
The new Glossary – compiled by a group of Orthodox rabbis and ministers of the Church – looks at the understanding of key terms such as Chosen People, Covenant and Israel from both Jewish and Christian perspectives.
In particular, it addresses the thorny issue of supersessionism – the belief that God’s promises to the Jewish people have been replaced by a new covenant with the Church.
According to the Christian commentary in the new Glossary, “supersessionism must be overcome within Christianity to make clear that all of God’s promises are eternal. To make a different claim would be both a major obstacle for reconciliation between Jews and Christians, it would also be theologically wrong.
“Christians must do more to recognise and respect the unique and separate existence of Judaism’s relationship with God both past, present and future…”
Christians, the document also says, “need to empathise and listen more to Jewish connections with the land [of Israel] and the complex and deep ways that this subject connects to Jewish history, emotion, identity, autonomy, safety etc”.
The document also notes, “When it comes to Christians focusing their energies on advocacy for Palestinians, they can often forget that Jews live as a vulnerable minority outside Israel and within Israel still live with numerous security concerns. In our universal message of justice and peace we can sometimes ignore the humanity of Jews and Israelis in order to emphasise the humanity and needs of Palestinians.”
Describing “The Inheritance of Abraham?” as “a direct example of supersessionist thinking”, it adds that “the central importance of the land in Judaism and Jewish thinking needs to be recognised and understood within the Church of Scotland”.
The Jewish commentary on the document warns, “If there is no place in Christian theology, and more specifically here Church of Scotland theology to understand a Jewish connection to the Land of Israel, this approach will quickly be connected with other approaches against Zionism that are understood to be sometimes antisemitic.”
It says that “looking at Zionist aspirations as ‘colonialist’ would be considered a misreading of Jewish history and an affront to Judaism”.
The joint directors of the Council of Christians and Jews, the Reverend Nathan Eddy and Georgina Bye welcomed the “side by side” approach adopted in the new document, “highlighting the importance of dialogue, deep listening and acceptance of difference. We hope the glossary goes some way to rebuilding relationships and can serve as a starting point for future Jewish – Christian conversations.”
Nowhere in this article do we see any demands by Christians that Jews understand and accept certain non-negotiable aspects of their faith — Jews are never required to accommodate a Christian worldview even when living in Christian-dominated nations for centuries.
Such on-going Christian-Jewish “dialogues” take place in direct disobedience to Paul’s admonition,
“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?”—2 Corinthians 6:14
To concede that Jews have a separate and equally valid convent with God is to completely ignore the central tenant of Christianity — which is summed up with the concise, unambiguous words of Christ:
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”—John 14:6
To concede that the “Jews” have a separate and equally valid path to God is tantamount to denying Christ — and making Christianity “of none effect” — and making it no different from Judaism — which is exactly what modern “judeo-Christianity” has become — Judaism.
God did away with the Old Covenant that He had originally made with the Israelites — and said that a New Covenant would be with the very same people, including with the House of Judah:
“Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.”—Jeremiah 31:31-33
And this New Covenant was not to be with any “Church” — as this rabbi claims, and as the Catholics claim — but rather with a people — not just with “Jews” but with the entire House of Israel, which Christ — the promised Messiah of Israel — came to regather.
However, by their own admission, Judaism was born in Babylon, not in Israel:
“Judaism was not evolved in Judah; it was in Babylon that Judaism first became that which it was and still is.”—”The Hebrew Peoples” written by Dr. H. Winckler, L.M. King, Dr. R. G. Brandis, and H. R. Hall. On pages 1781-4, Vol. 3, appearing in Helmsworth’s “History of the World”
God chastised Israel for engaging in these occult practices in Babylon — and promised that if Israelites did not repent of it and return to Him that He would lay waste to the city of Jerusalem — which is exactly what happened — culminating in the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD.
Jews, of course, have never repented of their occult babylonian Judaism — as the Babylonian Talmud, not the Old Testament — a grand deception which is the entire basis of their supremacist “religion” to this very day:
“It was hard for Satan alone to mislead the whole world, so he appointed prominent rabbis in different localities.”—A Chasidic saying attributed to Nahman of Bratzlav, early 19th century
So if there is going to be an ersatz “zionist” regathering of “Jews” in any central geographical area, it should be in Babylon, which would be due south of Baghdad in the modern state of Iraq — not in Old Jerusalem.
The Church of Scotland has forgotten who they are — the Celts who originally settled Scotland knew they were descendants of the ancient Scythians — as attested to in their 1320 Declaration of Arbroath:
“Most Holy Father and Lord, we know and from the chronicles and books of the ancients we find that among other famous nations our own, the Scots, has been graced with widespread renown. They journeyed from Greater Scythia by way of the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Pillars of Hercules, and dwelt for a long course of time in Spain among the most savage tribes, but nowhere could they be subdued by any race, however barbarous. Thence they came, twelve hundred years after the people of Israel crossed the Red Sea, to their home in the west where they still live today.”
The Scythians were descendants of the Cimmerians, who were one of the “lost” tribes of Israel — so there was no “supersessionism” when the Scots very early on embraced Christianity — rather, they weren’t “replacing Jews” but were merely fulfilling the promises that God made with the entire House of Israel.
Jews have long been aware that the Anglo-Saxons are legitimate descendants of the lost tribes of Israel — but they’ve worked feverishly to obscure this fact — along with the fact that they are not legitimate members of the tribe of Judah.
Despite this reality, the Church of Scotland, like most Christian denominations, go along with this deception and concede to the Jewish insistence that only the “Jews” are the living remnant of the House of Israel.
In fact, Jews go so far as to smear any Christians who know these facts about Jews as “antisemites” — and the tiny population of Jews in Scotland have gone so far as to threaten leaving en masse if the Scots don’t take draconian measures to curb their “antisemitism” — such as making it illegal to even criticize Jews — even in the privacy of their own homes.
We can only hope that the Jews of Scotland would follow through with these “threats” and leave — as Jews will never have a “deep, visceral” connection to the land that the native Scots do — nor will they ever be content to allow Scotland to remain what it is — and what it was meant to be — a Christian nation built by God’s true covenant people.
