The Zionist Deception
By Charles E. Carlson

Judeo-Christianity is less than 200 years old. The World Jewish
Zionism movement has played the key part in assuring its growth. We see the
result of this mind bending in the creation of a new 'Christianity' which in
its extreme form is known as Christian Zionism, fed by Oxford University
Press's Scofield Reference Bible published in New York in 1908. Bible
editors, most of which are owned by secular publishing house like Oxford
have also failed to correct obvious changes in common usage of words, such
as "Jew" and "Israel" that provide misleading, Zionist friendly inferences.
Oxford sold a new 20th Century theology to evangelical seminaries. The
Scofield usage has become a standard in most study or reference bibles used
by a wide range of evangelicals, and even penetrating mainline church bible
studies and broadcast media. These books are the subject of many articles by
this author and others (Endnote 1.Roots of Christian Zionism.)
Apostle Paul's Book of Romans provides an inspiring account of the struggle
to convert spiritually empty Israelites and agnostic Greeks to Jesus' Way in
the First Century. Christian Zionism teaches that Paul was talking about,
not his own generation, but the State of Israel created 1900 years after his
death. They argue that Political Israel is uniquely blessed by God, and that
Christians must also revere, honor, and love it else they will suffer God's
Several words are still found in our Bibles that did not
exist at the time of Jesus and his followers, and could not have been words
they used, but words that were placed there in the Sixteenth Century
versions. Examples are:
Jesus: there was no "J" in the Aramaic,
Greek, or Hebrew languages. I know Arabs named Issa, after Jesus. However
Jesus' name is not an issue because it has only one me aning.
there was no such word in the First Century. Not only was there no 'J' but
it is used in improper historical contexts in the New Testament; The
continued misuse of "Jew" in the bibles since 1947 implies that Jews today
might be expected to have some of the same gene pool and beliefs as an
Israelite of 3000 years ago. Most do not.
Judean: a place that began
with an Iota (I) in the Greek and is used in scripture as both a place and a
people. This may be the actual word from which the mistranslation of the
word Jew is derived. In many instances the popular translations still use
'Jew' where the original Greek text clearly read Ioudaia, or in our
vernacular, one who lived in Judea.
Israel: does appear in the
original Greek New Testament texts, but only as a people, never as a place.
Paul used Israel in several contexts: first as an ancient tribe named after
the man, Israel; as the specific belief system o r religion of that tribe,
as an example, Paul used 'Israelite' to describe himself and a few faithful
followers of the Abrahamic code; finally, 'Israel' means all those of all
races who follow the Messiah, Jesus in the New Covenant under God. Paul does
not use Israel as a place or country. (Endnote2. Greek New Testament)
A typical doctored Judeo-Christian presentation is found on a little
Bible bookmark distributed by a local Judeo-Christian church. In every case
it uses Jew, Judean, and Israel for the end purpose of connecting the New
Testament to the modern political place or state of Israel. This is printed:
'Christians should pray especially for ISRAEL because of..."
relationship between Israel, God's purpose for Israel, and the true church.'
'God's command with special promise of blessings (for Israel).'
church can not be complete without the select remnant of Israel.'
God's will that all Israel will be saved'
'The scriptural directive, 'to
the Jews first'
'The great multitude to be saved in the future
through their (Jews') ministry.'
This bookmark tract works to
synthesize Christianity with Judaism. My response is to parody a familiar
marriage ceremony verse, what God separated let no man try to put back
The Christians must pray for Israel tract contains a list
of 39 bible references, 14 from the book of Romans. Its unnamed author
claims that all these passages support the assumption that the new political
state of Israel is a fulfillment of God's plan. They do not. Unfortunately
the reader must read each passage in its own context to find the error. The
Judeo-Christian amalgamation depends upon the reader not reading. In the
interest of brevity I will answer those from Romans.&nbs p; (Endnote 4.
I ask a simple question. Who or what did Judeo-Christians
think 'Israel' was pre-1947, before there was a political state of Israel?
If 'Israel' of the bible today means the present day State of Israel, what
did it mean a hundred years before there was such a State? It should be
obvious that Israel meant then, and still means, one of the three contexts
in which Paul used it, none of which was a place or a state.
Christian New Testament answers this vital question many times, stating
again and again that those who follow Christ are the New Covenant sons of
Abraham. It is uncontested by Christians, Muslims, and Torah Jews that the
man 'Israel' was the grandson of Abraham. All but Jews believe from his
linage the Messiah was to come. In Galatians 3:28-29, Apostle Paul stated:
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is
neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be
Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. (
Note 3. Galatians).
Whoops, the Christian Zionist track lists this
passage, but it conveniently leaves off the last sentence about those who
belong to Jesus being the sons of Abraham and heirs to the promise, the new
Israel of God. Why is this part left off by Judeo-Christians? Because it
refutes the notion that warring, aborting, lying political Israel is God's
Paul amplified on this answer in the book of Romans
when he referred to himself as an 'Israelite' among the living remnant of
the ancient faith. He taught that the remnant who had not abandoned the
faith of Abraham were also the new Israel if they followed Jesus.
word 'Jew' did not e xist when Jesus, Paul, and the Disciples lived and when
later their words were scribed in Greek. We cannot be sure what they called
their faith, if not The Way or followers of Jesus. "The lost sheep of the
House of Israel,' were their first converts and the first Disciples.
Many centuries later, translators, such as the committee who did the King
James Edition, replaced the words recorded in the Greek texts with the
convenient little modern word 'Jew.' In most cases, Paul seems to have used
Judeans (or Ioudeans ) for those secularized descendants of once faithful
Israelites. The translators simplified the multiple language problem and
renamed those whom Paul was trying to convert as either 'Jews' or
'Gentiles?' Some translators might have enjoyed pinning the Jew name on
those who killed Jesus.
Israeli 'Jews' could not have killed Jesus.
Israeli Jews are almost all Ashkenazi, or 'Eastern European Jewish persons
of a different stock,' to quote Wikipedia. They lack the Arab gene pool,
only a very few have ancestors who were ever in the holy land. The history
of Ashkenazi Jews is recorded in many volumes, some found in synagogue
libraries. A good source is Andrew Hurley%u2018s, Holocaust II Saving Israel
from Suicide. (Note 4. Hurley)
Jews first claimed to have Arab
lineage by inference after Israel was declared a State in 1947. The Jews
came there from Europe claiming the Right of aliyah, or Law of Return
(1950). Suddenly the word 'Jew' was reinterpreted in the New Testament to
mean 'the chosen people' who were 'returning' from Europe! Christians
started to send them money. It was beneficial to find their religion named
all over the Christian bible...how could Christians oppose their 'return'
even though most had no roots in the Middle East? This paved the way for
political Christian Zionism to flourish.
The Apostle Paul said in the
book of Romans that God had blinded the eyes of the corrupted Israelites on
account of their long unrepentant sins. Jesus, John the Baptist, and Apostle
Paul all addressed the Pharisees variously as Generation of vipers and sons
of Satan. The borrowed biblical name 'Israel' is a convenient one for
Zionists, it is the basis of their claim to the Palestinians' land.
It is not unusual that people to not name their own faith because they see
it as the only faith. Christian was not part of Jesus' or Paul's vocabulary.
As best we know, they called their new faith something very simple, perhaps
'The Way.' And as we stated they might have referred to themselves as
followers of Christ or Jesus. Paul called himself an 'Israelite' not a Jew.
Jesus was called a Galilean, not a Jew. The Roman governor Pilate, placed a
sign on his cross, Iesous Rex Ioudaia, wrongly translated Je sus King of
Traditional Christians, from Catholics to Baptists, have always
believed that the 'Israel' of Paul's letters are those who followed Jesus.
Only Judeo-Christians of the present millennium deny it.
In contrast to
the ancient Way, modern Judeo-Christianity began no earlier than 1850 in the
U.S. with persons converted by Scotsman John Nelson Darby. Evangelical
Dispensationalism had a limited following until after 1948, when Israel
became a State and Oxford University Press wrote political Israel into the
bible as a fulfillment of prophesy. This helped to explode it into the
world's newest major religion.
Paul taught that only followers of
Christ (no matter what race, religion, sex, or age they live in) are the New
Covenant sons of Abraham and spiritual heirs to Jesus' kingdom...a heavenly
kingdom, not an earthly one. Judeo Christians, in contrast, believe 'All
Israel will be saved,' meaning literally a ll Jews, and that Jesus' Kingdom
is yet to come, will be on earth first, then for some, including themselves,
in heaven. Paul was certainly not a Christian Zionist.
the level of Zionist deceit and the propensity of Judeo Christians to
self-deceit we only look at the acts and statements of the venerated Jewish
state. In a story in Jewish World titled Why Not Intermarry, by Rabbi Shraga
Simmons, we read these amazing words from a self-professed Zionist:
"Jewish survival is not merely an ethnic issue, but also a moral issue,
because the Jews are not only an ethnic group, they are a moral force. The
values that the civilized world takes for granted -- monotheism, love your
neighbor, peace on earth, justice for all, universal education, all men are
created equal, dignity of the individual, the preciousness of life -- were
al l revolutionary ideas taught by the Jewish people. The Jews as a moral
force continues to this day... this is not to say that only Jews are capable
of conscience or of goodness. It is to say that of all the nations
throughout world history, only the Jews have defined their national mission
as bringing moral clarity to the world.'
Has this Rabbi ever heard of
Gaza or Lebanon? He has indeed, for he lives in Israel, and he holds up the
aborting, warring, atheistic state of Israel to be 'the moral force for the
Rabbi Simmons: 'The experience of visiting Israel is the
quintessential act of Jewish self-discovery. Being in an "all-Jewish"
environment steeped in millennia of history, Israel provides a new
perspective on the role of the Jewish people in the world, and of each Jew's
Zionists are, and must be, propagandists. They
must b e willing to call black white even if you are looking them in the
eye. I wish there was no reader left on the planet who did not know what
Israeli Jews have done to the Palestinians and the Lebanese.
Christians say they believe in confessing the sins in their own lives, but
they refuse to see the sins and brutality of Zionists. They have allowed
themselves to make Israel an evil object of worship. Only when Christian
Zionists' support for Israel collapses in shame will political Israel be
compelled to start practicing morality and justice toward its neighbors.

1 I speak the truth in Christ-I am not lying, my conscience
confirms it in the Holy Spirit- 2 I have great sorrow and unceasing anguish
in my heart. 3 For I could wish that I myself were cursed and cut off from
Christ for the sake of my brothers, those of my own race, 4 the people of
Israel. Theirs is the adoption as sons; theirs the divine glory, the
covenants, the receiving of the law, the temple worship and the promises. 5
Theirs are the patriarchs, and from them is traced the human ancestry of
Christ, who is God over all, forever praised! Amen.
Answer by CEC: Paul
is a missionary, lamenting for 'the sake of my brothers, those of my own
race.' Paul sees the fallen Israelites (probable including his own family)
as going to hell if they do not follow Jesus' Way. How natural that is, but
this has nothing to do with Zionists from Europe who chanced along two
thousand years later...if it does, show me!

disobedient to God have now received mercy as a result of their

Answer by CEC. Is this not Paul lecturing to his contemporaries
about God's mercy and justice for all mankind. It has nothing to do with any
state in the future. God deals with men one on one, according to Paul, not
with politics. Paul says all those who believe in Jesus are the New Israel

time, an even the patriarchs like Abraham before his time? Where does Paul
or Jesus mention future state of political Israel?

And if they do not persist in unbelief, they will be grafted in, for God is

how much greater riches will their fullness bring!
Answer by CEC: Is this
getting tedious for you ? it is for me...the Christian Zionist technique is
always based on deception because the truth will not work. All literature,
including the New Testament, is written to be read in context, not in
fragments, as they would have us read it. Any story must be viewed as the
author wrote it, one continuous story, not a scrabble game of scripture
scraps and pieces, not a jigsaw puzzle to be solved, as Christian Zionists
always present it. If one reads the entire book of Romans it is clear that
God is using the Messiah Jesus to reach all men one by one, and not all will
respond. In God's eyes there is no Greek, Israelite, atheist or Jew 2000
years later. Each person may choose to come to God or die without God. There
is no doubt why Paul, the converted Israelite, aimed this 11th chapter of
Romans at his living breathing relatives.
