How Pastor Chuck Baldwin Came Out of the Bondage of Christian Zionism

In this remarkable, 61 minute video, Pastor Chuck Baldwin is interviewed by Steven Ben-Nun of Israeli News Live about his journey out of a deep seated and three decades long belief that the modern state of Israel is the fulfillment of biblical prophecy. What's remarkable about this interview is that Steven Ben-Nun is a Messianic (Jewish) Christian who had been under the influence of Zionism, himself. The large majority of Messianic Christians are fervent Christian Zionists. We Hold These Truths has, also, interviewed Pastor Baldwin in our podcast, "Pastor Dr. Chuck Baldwin Rejects Christian Zionism."

Mainline Christians are Discovering the Dangers of Christian Zionism

Christian_Zionism-11.pngWhen We Hold These Truths started challenging Israel supporting churches in 2002, the term "Christian Zionism" was not in use. Today, there are more groups like FOSNA (Friends Of Sabeel North America), TruNews and a growing number of mainline Christians that are challenging Christian Zionism. In this 19 minute podcast, Chuck Carlson and members of WHTT discuss some of the latest developments of the "Turning" [from Christian Zionism] that we described in our 2010 documentary, "Christian Zionism: The Tragedy & The Turning, Part I."

Educating Evangelicals About Christian Zionism at the Altar Conference

We Hold These Truths has been challenging Christians about the dangers of Christian Zionism since 2002. Our latest effort took place in Fresno, CA at the Altar Conference: Where Heaven Meets Earth," that describes it as "a weekend of dynamic worship and powerful teaching, provoking believers of all backgrounds into a lifestyle of radical pursuit and relentless devotion to Christ." We think that's a great idea. Normally, WHTT vigils are held in front of Christian Zionist churches or events held by Christian Zionist organizations, like Christians United For Israel. Thousands of Christians attended the event and were greeted at three entrance points by members of the WHTT team led by David Jacobs and Craig Hanson. Because the "Free Speech" areas were very close to the lines for the security check points at the entrances, everyone got to see one or more of our signs. In this revealing, 23 minute, podcast, Craig and Dave reflect on some very interesting encounters they had with conference attendees. Many people were clueless about what Zionism is. Craig talked with attendees about how he came out of being a Christian Zionist, even though he didn't know he was one (listen to: "Confessions of a Former Christian Zionist"). Handout mentioned in the podcast: "Does the Bible Require Followers of Jesus to Support the Jewish State of Israel? - Be A Berean: Acts 17:11, Do Your Own Research."

Pastor Dr. Chuck Baldwin Rejects Christian Zionism

Baldwin_Chuck-02.jpgDr. Chuck Baldwin is a prominent American, evangelical, Christian pastor who ran for President of the United States on the Constitution Party in 2008. He currently is the pastor of the Liberty Fellowship in Kalispell, MT and is a nationally syndicated columnist. What may not be widely known about Pastor Baldwin is his Neo-Christian theology, known as "Christian Zionism," that he preached for over 30 years. In this 47 minute podcast with Chuck Carlson and Craig Hanson of We Hold These Truths, Pastor Baldwin reveals his step by step account of his long journey of change to put aside the distorted view of history required to believe the teachings of "Christian Zionism." Christian Zionists believe with religious fervor that to say or do anything against the modern state of Israel, no matter what they do to the indigenous Palestinians, constitutes a sin against God. Traditional Christians reject this notion and don't see the modern state of Israel as a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy. We Hold These Truths' awarding winning documentary, "Christian Zionism: The Tragedy & The Turning, Part I," exposes and explains the false theology of "Christian Zionism." We hope and pray that what Pastor Baldwin says about his journey out of "Christian Zionism" will cause other Christian pastors to examine and evaluate their own theology. Recommended articles by Dr. Baldwin: "Perpetual War: A Racket For Politicians, Bankers And War Profiteers," "Seventy Years Of Turmoil, Treachery, Death And Destruction" and "How Zionist Israel Celebrated Its 70th Anniversary."

Explaining Christian Zionism, A Faith Based Anti-Reality, Part I

Adherents to Neo-Christian Zionism theology are doing their best to appear like they are part of mainstream Christianity with a theolgy, they claim, that goes back to the early days of Christianity. This 13 minute podcast is an introduction to a series of programs that we will look into the various claims and aspects of what we call Neo-Christian Zionism (we added the "Neo" because it is a new variation of Christianity). We'll be looking into such confusing terms like "dispensationalism," "Christian Palestinianism," "replacement theology" and "The Rapture." Below is a background paper by Craig Hanson on Dr. Paul Wilkinson, mentioned in our podcast. References: "Brutality Blind Churches Invent Labels for Palestine Sympathetic Christians," "Prophets Who Prohesy Lies in My Name."

Christian Zionism The World’s Newest Religion Podcast

The idea of Christ Followers supporting political Israel is a movement no more than 70 years old, having no roots in, nor identity with the Evangelical Movement that helped to found and define America. This development has led Chuck Carlson to conclude that Christian Zionism is neo-Christianity, a new form of Christianity. In this 24 minute podcast, Chuck Carlson discusses his article by the same title and expands upon it with the help of Craig Hanson and Tom Compton. [Links referenced in the program: "Christian Zionism: The World’s Newest Religion (article)," "A Theological Response to Christian Zionism By Dr. Rob Dalrymple (podcast)" and "James Perloff on Christian Zionism and the New World Order (podcast)."]

Palestinian Christians In The Shadow of Christian Zionism

Palestinian Christian, Rev. Alex Awad reveals the effects of Christian Zionist theological beliefs on Palestinian Christians, in this insightful presentation made at a "Christ At The Checkpoint" seminar held in Bethlehem, Palestine. Millions of American Christians have been deceived by a theology that says that God gave the modern state of Israel, exclusively, to today's Jews and that the indigenous Palestinians living there, have no right to be there. Traditional Christianity rejects this notion. Please watch this 1 hr. 16 minute video presentation and, then, have one of your Christian Zionist friends watch it. Who knows, maybe they will come to realize that God is not a respector of persons and welcomes one and all into His kingdom. A written summary of Rev.. Awad's presentation is available here.

Christian Theologian Exposes Enigmatic Doctrine of Christian Zionism

More Christian theologians are waking up to the false promises of Christian Zionist theology. Dr. Rob Dalrymple, in his book, "These Brothers of Mine: A Theology of Land & Family & A Response to Christian Zionism," does an excellent job to biblically challenge the theology of Christian Zionism. We gave a copy of Dr. Dalrymple's book to the president of western seminary. Here's what he had to say: "I had the time to read These Brothers of Mine over the weekend and found it a wonderful book. I so appreciated the spirit in which Rob wrote the book. I cannot say that there was anything in the book that I would not embrace! I am passing this book on to another one of our professors to get his take on it, but I believe this is an area of teaching we need to be addressing in the church." In this informative, 52 minute interview with Dr. Dalrypmple, we delve into the theology of Christian Zionism. We also recommend this message by Dr. Dalrymple: "What Does Israel Mean To You?" Also, Dr. Dalrymple has just written a new book, "Follow the Lamb: A Guide to Reading, Understanding, and Applying the Book of Revelation."

At Arizona Mosque Christ Follower Explains Christian Zionism

Al-Quds-Day-2012-2017-06c.jpgWe Hold These Truths representatives have been invited to speak at numerous mosques about our Christian ministry that challenges Christian Zionism, a form of Neo-Christianity that is less than 150 years old. Christian Zionists hold fast to the belief that the modern state of Israel is a fulfillment of biblical prophecy. In 2012, Tom Compton of We Hold These Truths was invited to make a presentation at the Al-Mahdi Islamic Center in Tempe, Arizona for their International Day of Al Quds (Jerusalem) program. An audio recording was made of the PowerPoint presentation. In this video version, the original audio recording was used using additional photos and videos to bring the challenges being made to Christian Zionism, up to date. For background on the subject, our award winning documentary, "Christian Zionism: The Tragedy & The Turning, Part I" exposes Christian Zionism's false theology. We are encouraged to see that there is a very gradual turning away from Christian Zionism and a greater awareness of this Un-Christ like theology. 28 minutes.

Christian Zionism Is A War Based Religion

Armageddon-05.jpgChristian Zionism is a war based, political religion wrapped around the notion that the modern state of Israel is a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy. It is a form of dispensational Christian theology (less than 200 years old) where war figures into its end times theology. In this podcast, Chuck Carlson, Tom Compton and Craig Hanson delve into various aspects of this war based religion including numerous, prominent evangelical Christian leaders like Henry Blackaby, Chuck Colson (deceased), Bill Bright (deceased) of Campus Crusade, D. James Kennedy (decesead), Richard Land of the Southern Baptist Conference, Ted Haggard, John McArthur, Dr. Wayne Grudem (author of "Politics According to the Bible") and John Hagee who have blessed the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, both before and after the wars started. They've gone so far as to say these wars are "just wars" according to their intrepretation of the Bible. WHTT's Chuck Carlson warned his fellow Baptists in 1990 about not going to war against Iraq ("Iraq: Americans Prepped For 'War'." Also, before the 2003 Gulf War on Iraq, WHTT opposed going to war, again (see here). An excellent article from 2004 in exposes evangelical Christians who support unjust wars:  Pro-War Christians Should Come Clean.

Dr. Rob Dalrymple, pastor of Northminster Presbyterian Church in Bakersfield, CA has written a powerful and important book, "These Brothers of Mine:  A Biblical Theology of Land and Family and a Response to Christian Zionism" that we enthusiastically recommend.  In this interview with Pastor Rob Dalrymple, he talks about his journey out of Christian Zionism to theologically challenging it.  This is a fascinating and encouraging story that all evangelical Christians need to consider. After you listen to this podcast, you'll want to buy a copy of his book for yourself, and, for your pastor.  People do wake up to Christian Zionism's divisive theology, and, Dr. Dalrymple's book will provide them with sound theology to help them to do so.

Chuck Carlson: An Overiew of the Dangers of Christian Zionism with Susan Lindauer

CarlsonChuck-CovertReport-02.jpgWe Hold Tese Truths' founder, Chuck Carlson was interviewed by Susan Lindauer on her program, The Covert Report with Susan Lindauer. This is how Susan introduced Chuck:  "Today’s guest is Charles Carlson, one of the foremost critics of Christian Zionism from “We Hold These Truths–” a pro-peace, pro-life group that has been hosting vigils at large evangelical churches across America, challenging their support for Israel, for over a decade....Carlson explains that Christian Zionists are guided by one simple principle–that the State of Israel fulfills biblical prophecy. For indeed, Christian Zionists believe Israel’s rise– and destruction by God, caused by its hubris and abuses– are preconditions for God to send the Messiah as part of the End Times Movement. Unless we wake up the masses, as a direct consequence of this Zionist philosophy, the global community is guaranteed to face endless cycles of destruction in the Middle East for years to come."  Check out Susan's other insightful interviews with other well known activists, like Cynthia McKinney, at The Covert Report with Susan Lindauer.

Christian Zionism The World’s Most Urgent Mission Field

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.”

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.

Cracks In The Christian Zionism Armor?

According to Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, in a letter to supporters, dated 11/17/2011, he writes:  "A disturbing movement is making inroads in the evangelical Christian world. A recent op-ed in theJerusalem Post summed it up: 'Evangelical and conservative Christians — Israel's most important allies — are increasingly targeted for conversion from Christian Zionism to Christian Palestinianism'.” We can only hope it's true.  We discuss this and other vital topics from rising food prices due to extending ethanol subsidies to sanctions on Iran.  There's a lot of food for thought in this podcast.

The Roots of Christian Zionism: How Scofield Sowed Seeds of Apostasy

We Hold These Truths has released our first documentary on Christian Zionism for free viewing on the internet.  This is a must see to understand the nature of a branch of Christianity that puts Israel ahead of Jesus. Ever wonder why so many Christians support America’s many wars, especially in the Middle East? A new Christianity has emerged from the Twentieth Century called Christian Zionism or what could be called, "Angry Evangelicalism," or "Dispensationalism on Steroids." What motivates a nationally known, evangelical preacher like John Hagee to call for a preemptive strike against Iran when it is contrary to what Jesus taught and commanded his followers to do? This “Roots of Zionism” presentation may be the first of its kind with a factual explanation of how Christianity’s latest apostate epidemic was launched with the publishing of C. I. Scofield's reference Bible in 1909, and the influence of the notes in it.
