Moriel's response to new Mel Gibson film
|Poster to the new Mel Gibson film, The Passion of the Christ|
We carefully watched the Mel Gibson interview by ABC's Dianne Sawyer with preview clips of the film in advance of its release on the Roman Catholic feast of Ash Wednesday.
What nearly jumped out most clearly was Mel Gibson's plain and unequivocal statement: "Someone does not even have to believe in Jesus Christ to enter The Kingdom of God". Jesus Himself on the contrary teaches in The Word of God that "Unless A Man Is Born Again" (through a saving faith in Jesus) he/she cannot possibly enter The Kingdom of God. Gibson's position reflects the ecumenical/inter faith revision in The Roman Catholic catechism 847 (which contradicts 846 in the same catechism which says salvation is available only in The Roman Catholic Church).

Aquarian Conspiracy Revisited
Early in the decade of the 1980s, a book rose to the best-sellers list that frightened many Christian leaders and marked the birth of the world's awareness of the new age movement. That book was The Aquarian Conspiracy, written by sociologist, Marilyn Ferguson. It was instantly recognized by the church as a threat to God's truth and a force to be reckoned with.

Is this how the church of Jesus Christ proclaims his death until he comes?
The one who is laughing most is Satan!
The Church Has Become a Circus... Literally.
If you don't see this, you won't believe it. This is a picture of Methodist Pastor Jim Lavender riding an elephant during an outdoor church service.
Oh wait, it gets worse. Advent Lutheran Pastor Rick Hartmann of Melbourne, FL. (aka, Richarto the Clown) attempts to justify dressing like a clown to lead communion by stating that "clown" means "clod" (buffoon), and God used a clod (of dirt) to make man. Therefore, if God can use a clod (of dirt), He can use a clod (a circus clown) to do good. Got it?
Nine out of ten adults contend that their faith is very important in their life, and three out of every four adults who consider themselves to be Christian say there are aspects of their faith life they would like to improve. A new national survey by The Barna Group discovered that there are two faith dimensions in which people are most likely to desire such improvement, but that few people believe that they are immature in any of seven aspects of faith practice.
Palestinian Christian revisionism has revived replacement theology
By Melanie Phillips - March 22, 2002
It was one of those sickening moments when an illusion is shattered and an ominous reality laid bare. I was among a group of Jews and Christians who met recently to discuss the Churches' increasing public hostility to Israel. The Jews were braced for a difficult encounter. After all, many British Jews (of whom I am one) are themselves appalled by the destruction of Palestinian villages, targeted assassinations and other apparent Israeli overreactions to the Middle East conflict.

A March 31 open letter issued by the World Council of Churches denounced "repeated declarations by the (Israeli) government's top leaders" that "all of Jerusalem will belong to Israel". This organization, which represents a large portion of institutional Christendom, has for years stood in solidarity with the Muslim Arabs against what they call Israel's "illegal occupation of Palestine".
This contradicts the viewpoint of many born-again Christians who hold to a literal interpretation of the Bible. They support Israel's possession of the entirety of Jerusalem as its eternal capital, with Judea and Samaria as the historical heartland of Israel. This discrepancy in "Christian" viewpoints must appear puzzling to Jews.

There are about 1,000 million people in the world who profess to be Christian and who therefore owe some allegiance to the teaching of the New Testament, which is the major source book for Christian thought. As the New Testament was written almost entirely by Jews and has as its central figure a Jew, it is also of great importance to Jewish people. But what is its significance for Jews? Is its influence beneficial or harmful? Does it encourage anti-Semitism? No scholar who wants to be taken seriously can say that anti-Semitism arose for the first time as a result of the emergence of Christianity. Jewish as well as Christian scholars have pointed to Pharaoh and Haman as pre-Christian enemies of the Jews who sought to wipe out the Jews when all Jews were in one political territory at the same time. Antiochus Epiphanes showed the same Judeophobia and many pagan classical writers were quite explicit in their antipathy towards the Jews. Later on in the Christian era there were Church fathers who were quite virulent in their attacks on the Jews, but many of them were also very hostile towards those they considered Christian heretics.
