"Kate and Cherith [the co-authors of the Warriors series who share the pen name Erin Hunter] have always loved cats and writing fantasy stories! ... They are both very interested in ancient forms of worship, such as astrology and stone circles, and use their knowledge to give depth and richness to the cats' own mythology." :"(http://www.warriorcats.com/content.html)":
Few stories in recent years have mobilized the U.S. Jewish community more than the announcement by the Presbyterian Church USA (PCUSA), a prominent Protestant "mainline" denomination, that it would begin the process of divesting its monies from companies doing business with Israel. More recently, the World Council of Churches, representing 340 denominations and churches in over 100 countries, issued a similar call. This move was almost universally denounced by Jews --Ã‚ both liberal and conservative, both religious and secular.
Stephen Sizer Ã‚ is an Anglican vicar, identifying himself an Evangelical and calling Israel an "Apartheid regime" that Christians should oppose.
The supposed Evangelicism of Stephen Sizer's contemporary Anglicanism is hardly that of Cranmer, Ridley, Latimer, Hooper, Tyndale or that of the Anglican martyrs who established Evangelical Anglicanism. Indeed, in the age of popular Anglican ecumenism, the Thirty Nine Articles of Anglicanism are long compromised. Much if not most of what the Anglican martyrs were brutally murdered for has popular acceptance, even among Anglican Evangelicals. Much less is Sizer's Anglicanism that of a Wilberforce, or a Shaftsbury, who accepted the biblical teaching about the prophetic purposes of God for Israel and the Jews as is taught in Scripture.
On behalf of a number of concerned Christians of whom we are aware in NZ, we respond to the campaign by Stephen Tollestrup and Tear Fund to mobilise Evangelical Christians in New Zealand against Israel in Israel's fight for survival against Islamic terrorism.
Yeshua warned blatantly about and against those taking upon themselves the religious titles of both "father" and "rabbi", because both usurp the place of God as our one true Father and our one true Teacher (rabbi meaning teacher but deriving from the Hebrew term "great"). Just as we have Roman Catholic clergy wrongfully calling themselves "father", today in the Messianic Movement we have many kooks calling themselves "Rabbi" (some of whom are not even ethnically Jewish and most of whom never trained as rabbis, never studied rabbinics or talmudic Judaism, and in the majority of cases can't even speak Hebrew).
I know nothing of this individual calling himself Rabbi Yoseph Moishe Koniuchowsky, but MORIEL has been asked to comment on his diatribe.

In Jewish-Christian relations an old problem has been generating a new controversy and has compelled some people to ask whether we are facing a " ˜new antisemitism". In this case, concern has been raised about the doctrine of replacement theology - the doctrine that Christianity has simply replaced Judaism. This has revived fears among some Jews about the spectre of a resurgence of Christian antisemitism. Replacement theology suggests that since the time of Jesus, Christians have replaced Jews in God's favour and that Christianity has inherited all of God's promises, including the land of Israel.

Is it just me, or is it noticeable to others that the condition of the church today is confusion and strife? It"s a time where few are sure about anything and Christians are floundering with no leadership and no direction. If you go into any of the large Christian blogs and chat-rooms on the Internet you"ll read a babel of unsure and fearful voices -- a spirit of fear has infested the church. As in the days of the earthly years of Jesus, so it is today on the eve of His return:

Today's HERESCOPE on the Warrior Bride is quite significant.Ã‚ Ã‚ If you have been aware of what has been happening in the Apostolic movement - you are aware that there is a militancy that has been developed now for some years.
