Millions of American, evangelical Christians don't even realize that they have been conditioned to believe that the modern state of Israel is the fulfillment of biblical prophecy and that they must have a dual allegiance to both the US and Israel to be right with God. We Hold These Truths has been dispelling this myth for the past 17 years. We've conducted about 200 vigils in front of Christian Zionist churches and events. Our California Central Valley Outreach Director, David Jacob and his team found this concept of dual allegiance to be true at a recent vigil they conducted in Fresno at a new venue, a Christian rock concert with singer Michael W. Smith as the headliner. Attendees were greeted by the WHTT team, who engaged them with signs, dialog and a handout, "Does the Bible Require Folowers of Jesus to Support the Jewish State of Israel." In this thoughtful, 27 minute podcast, David Jacobs and members of We Hold These Truths discuss the vigil and the important lessons they learned including the concept of Christian Nationalism.
Linda Compton was the beloved wife of one of We Hold These Truths founding directors, Tom Compton. She went home to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on November 1, 2016. Linda was loved by all who knew her. She was a diligent student of the Bible and taught women's Bible studies for over 20 years. Linda was a perfect example of a compassionate, Christian peacemaker, in thought and deed. This 28 minute podcast is a tribute to Linda, focusing on her courage to change her course, as related to the Bible studies she had been teaching for years. Only when you listen to the whole podcast will you understand the importance of what Linda did. Jesus taught: "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God." [Matthew 5:9]. Oh, that more Christians would take that command to heart!
With a straight face, the power brokers of the US government say they want to bring democracy to Venezuela. Never mind that Venezuela is already a democracy, and its socialist leaders have been reelected repeatedly. If you believe the MSM (Main Stream Media) and US government narrative about Venezuela, then this video interview with Daniel McAdams of the Ron Paul Institute on the Corbett Report, is not for you. If you'd like to hear a well reasoned analysis, you've picked an excellent analysis of what's going on in Venezuela. The situation in Venezuela is volatile and subject to change, but the history of regime changes by the US, elaborated by Daniel McAdams in this interview, are remarkably similar. Whatever the fate of Venezuela, this interview will provide a good foundation for understanding future US regime change operations. You, too, will be able to spot them from 1000 miles away.
Jesus was the Prince of Peace and taught his followers: "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God" (Matthew 5:9). Why do so many prominent, Christian Zionists ignore what Jesus taught? Find out why in this thoughtful, 27 minute podcast. We take a look at a few of these Christian leaders who include John Hagee (Christians United For Israel), Ann Graham Lotz (daughter of Billy Graham), Kay Arthur (Precepts Ministries), Richard Land & Pastor Robert Jeffress (spiritual adviser to the President), both of the Southern Baptist Convention, and Dr. Wayne Grudem (Seminary professor and author of "Systematic Theology" and “Politics According to the Bible“). Find out why Linda Compton, wife of one of We Hold These Truths' founding directors, Tom Compton, stopped teaching Precept Ministries Bible studies for women, after she had taught about 50 different Precepts studies, five years before she passed away.
We Hold These Truths has been challenging Christian Zionist Churches since 2002 by holding vigils urging fellow Christians to advocate for peace and justice in the Middle East. Our West Coast Outreach Director, Craig Hanson, recently asked a pastor hosting a CUFI (Christians United For Israel) "Why Israel?" event in California, why should Christians support Israel. In this 13 minute, podcast zinger, Craig and members of We Hold These Truths discuss the letter he sent to the pastor and the importance of challenging the theology that puts Israel ahead of Jesus Christ. We think it's time that more Christians ask of their pastors, "Why Israel?" We are pleased to recommend the group, Christians United For Israel and Palestine, that stands in stark contrast to the Christian Zionist theology of CUFI.
