Mainline Christians are beginning to realize that “Christian Zionism” is a misnomer, a sort of faith based oxymoron, an impossibility to those who follow Christ. As of yet, we do not know of a denomination that has declared the Zionist leaning church down the street to be an open mission field, but they should. If “Christian Zionism” cannot be said to be a denomination, an offshoot, branch, or subset, it must then be about world politics, a radical departure from following Christ that is better described as “Israel following.”
Paul preaches to the synagogue of Antioch that Jesus is the extension of David's lineage that was fulfilled after the resurrection of Jesus.
Barnabas and Saul are sent out from Antioch to preach by the Holy Spirit. Don't miss the very interesting discussion on the Holy Spirit that our study leader, Mark Horton, reveals.
Almost half of the states in the US have approved the purchasing of Israeli securities that ultimately allows Israel to keep their war machine. In this podcast we talk about two efforts to challenge the Israeli lobby. First we go to Texas where a group of Texans challenged the Texas-Israel Day held in Austin, Texas. Then we go to Colorado and discuss Chuck Carlson's letter to the governor of Colorado about the recent legislation passed allowing the purchase of Israeli bonds by the state. Chuck discusses the hidden financial dangers for investors when buying Israeli securities.
The body of Christ continue to grow after Peter is divinely released from prison. Our study guide, Mark Horton, has some interesting questions posed in this session that he answers with clarity.

Thanks to WHTT's newest vigil veteran, Craig Hanson, a former Christian Zionist, we have a very clear account of what goes on at a Christians United For Israel event. While other members of the WHTT vigil team held signs like "Who Would Jesus Bomb?" and "Choose Life Not War" and "Blessed Are The Peacemakers" outside the Abundant Life Fellowship church in Roseville, CA, Craig went in to find out what was said. His report is eye opening. In response to our sign "Who Would Jesus Bomb?," the CUFI director said that Jesus would bomb...you'll have to listen to find out what he said. Check out the flier, handed out at the vigils, that is mentioned in the program.

We were inspired by one of our listeners who wanted to attend a vigil at a Christians United For Israel event near his home. In this program we talk about what is needed to do a vigil at a Christian Zionist church. One of the main things to be done is to send a letter to the pastor of the church to let him know why we have chosen his church. After listening to this program, be sure to get the rest of the story as told after the vigil in "What Went On Inside a John Hagee CUFI Event in California."

Normally vigils by We Hold These Truths, conducted in front of Christian Zionist churches or events, are ignored by the media. In the case of a vigil in Fresno, CA conducted by David Jacobs, Pastor Jim Franklin of the Cornerstone Church in downtown Fresno was so upset by the presence of WHTT and our controversial signs like Blessed Are The Peacemakers, Choose Life Not War and Who Would Jesus Bomb? (a new version of this is: Who Would Jesus Drone?, a corollary to the well known WWJD? (What Would Jesus Do?), that he called out the media. Mr. Franklin has a local talk show and must have some clout because one of the local stations, KFSN (channel 30), an ABC affiliate showed up and did an excellent and fair job of reporting our vigil. It's only just over a minute but packs a punch. Pastor Jim Franklin has hosted a number of events for John Hagee and CUFI (Christians United For Israel) at his church that bares the same name as John Hagee's home church, Cornerstone Church, in San Antonio, TX.

WHTT joined Cindy Sheehan at her Tour de Peace stop in Phoenix to protest the use of drones by President Obama, that has resulted in the death of many innocent children in countries like Pakistan and Yemen. The death of Cindy's son, Casey, in Iraq, emboldened her to become an anti-war activist. We Hold These Truths member Leslie Fort (at left in picture) helped read the names of the innocent children killed by drones in front of Senator John McCain's Phoenix office. Travis Steel, a WHTT director holds the "Who Would Jesus Bomb...or Drone?" sign on the right. This video is one of Cindy Sheehan's travel logs made along her journey from California to Washington, DC via bicycle.
The Concise Dictionary of Christianity observes that "Scofield's influence on the evangelical/fundamentalist movement of the early twentieth century was enormous." And, we would add, devastating. In this podcast we review a new book, The Praise of Folly: The Enigmatic Life & Theology of C.I. Scofield by David Lutzweiler. A vicious attack on Lutzweiler and his book by the senior pastor of The Scofield Memorial Church prompted us to look a little deeper and review the new facts, uncovered by Lutzweiler, that cast more shadows on Scofield, the man and his theology.
The Gatekeepers is a hard hitting and damning documentary about the workings of the Israeli Shin Bet secret security service made by Israeli filmmaker Dror Moreh. Six former heads of Shin Bet reveal the inner workings of how they deal with the "Palestinian Problem." To a man, they say that Israel is doing to the Palestinians is not working. We discuss the movie based on a review in The Guardian, a UK paper. Find out what gate keeping means how it is used outside Israel to control and neutralize opposition to Zionist agenda.
A short distance to the east of Cyprus, experiencing major economic woes, lies Israel where it is business as usual. Israel was just honored by a visit from the U.S. President; Israel’s secretly indebted banking system funds a militarist economy that boasts of power but leaks at every seam. It is the consummate actor, feigning prosperity while it hovers on the brink of national financial suicide. This is an update to Chuck Carlson's investigations into US dollar denominated, Israeli bonds.
According to a recent ABC News/Washington Post poll: "Among religious groups, sympathy for Israel peaks, at 76%, among evangelical white Protestants [Christian Zionist influenced]. Chuck Carlson discusses how this poll and others are skewed to favor Israel.
Peter defends his ministry to the uncircumcised gentiles.

A history of two destroyed currencies might well have precluded Israel from selling its own shekel bonds. So, back at the turn of the 21st century, it seems to have invented a counterfeiting scheme to sell U.S. bonds to Americans. It now issues bonds in America, payable in dollars, not shekels. This is a follow-up story to Chuck Carlson's ground breaking story, "Devaluation Risk of Shekel Bonds."
Find out what's behind the move to introduce legislation in states and cities across the US to allow the investment of public funds in "debt obligations backed by the full faith and credit of the State of Israel." Chuck Carlson and others in Colorado are challenging legislation being introduced to buy Israeli bonds. Chuck has found out there is a dark and down side to such investments.

Israeli filmmaker, Guy Davidi teamed up with Palestinian farmer, Emad Burnat, to create a documentary, 5 Broken Cameras, that has been nominated for an Academy Award for "Best Documentary." It tells the story of the non-violent protests conducted, over seven years, by a West Bank village, Bil'in (surrounded by illegal Israeli settlements) in an effort to stop the confiscation of Palestinian lands by Israel. The Israeli Ministry of Education has banned the showing of the film in schools, although it has been aired on two Israeli documentary channels and shown at theaters. This short video shows the reaction to a film showing to a group of Israeli students. Watch this and you will be amazed at the hope that this film could generate on both sides of the conflict. We've seen 5 Broken Cameras and it is very powerful and moving.

The nomination of former Senator Chuck Hagel by President Obama, to be the new Secretary of Defense, is causing a stir among neo-cons, the Israeli lobby and Christian Zionists. Whatever the outcome of this round of politics, this broadcast reveals some constants that never change.
On the road to Damascus, Saul, the Judean who had been persecuting the followers of Christ, is visited by Jesus with a life changing outcome for Saul, who became known as Paul. This is a very interesting study by Mark Horton. Be sure to check out, in detail, the fascinating timeline picture (it happens to be on a grave marker) Mark refers to in the study.

Rev. Stephen Sizer, an Anglican vicar from the UK has written and spoken widely on the phenomena of Christian Zionism. When he was recently attacked by Zionists in the UK for exposing Israel's mistreatment of Palestinian children (see, Child Abuse: Palestinian Children in Israeli Prisons), it was no surprise that the standard pejorative of calling him "anti-semitic" was invoked. Fortunately, a UK group, Jews For Justice for Palestine, has come to Rev. Sizer's defense. In this podcast, we also take a look at attacks by Christian Zionists upon Christians who object to the unfair treatment of Palestinians by Israel.
