Christian Palestinianism and the anti-Israel Crusade
The word of the LORD came to Jeremiah: "Have you not observed that these people are saying, "˜The LORD has rejected the two clans that He chose'? Thus they have despised my people so that they are no longer a nation in their sight" (Jeremiah 33:23,24).
One man who has consistently despised the nation of Israel is Naim Stifan Ateek, a Palestinian Anglican clergyman from Beth She'an. In his Easter message in 2001, Ateek made the following statement:

Bible Prophecy pundit, Jack Van Impe, has just announced that he will be canceling his TV program, "Jack Van Impe Presents'' from the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) after a recent episode was replaced with a program promoting unity between Christianity and Islam.
According to a news release on Van Impe's web site, "On Wednesday afternoon we received a call from Matt Crouch of TBN informing us that they would not run that program, despite having aired it Monday evening. The reason he gave was that we specifically mentioned Rick Warren and Robert Schuller and that it is TBN's policy that broadcasters are not allowed to rebuke other ministries. This is a rather hypocritical statement in light of the fact that they have never said anything in the past when we have rebuked others such as Bishop Spong, Bishop Pike, and in the past few months Harold Camping and Rob Bell."
Van Impe has recently veered from his own policy of not criticizing other ministries. He is infamous for ragging on anyone who dares to refute the false teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. He is receiving a taste of his own medicine.
It comes at no surprise that it was Matt Crouch, the younger son of TBN founders Paul and Jan Crouch, that flexed his muscles in Van Impe's direction. Several years ago while was hosting the Praise the Lord program, Matt expressed his fury at Van Impe by name in response to Van Impe's promotional tape on Y2K. Matt accused Van Impe of trying to raise money by planting fear in people's minds, something TBN does on a regular basis during every Praise-a-Thon fund raiser.

I am writing to you regarding the actions of an Anglican vicar who is currently in Malaysia, being hosted by a Far Right political outfit.
I would like to draw your attention to the facts outlined in this article: http://bit.ly/lvzE7v
Reverend Doctor Stephen Sizer is the incumbent of Christ Church Virginia Water, and will be acting as Locum Rural Dean in September and October 2011, in the deanery of Runnymede.
In his capacity as an Anglican vicar, and his role as an international speaker, Sizer is presenting a heavily-politicised message which he considers to be Christian.
Yet Sizer's associations with various anti-Semites and Holocaust deniers, his encouraging of political protests outside of synagogues on Jewish high holy days, and his theological and political views on Israel, are cause for concern.
His appearance with a Malaysian Far Right outfit is but the latest in a long line of controversial statements and actions.
Only recently, Rev. Sizer suggested that Colonel Gaddafi and his son are linked to the USA and Israel by "Jewish blood", which explains their wicked politics: http://bit.ly/ekSrGT
These concerns about Rev. Sizer are particularly felt by many in the Jewish community in the UK.
In the light of my message, I strongly encourage you to publicly speak out against Anglican clergymen aligning themselves with Far Right groups.
I await your response.

When A Truth Becomes THE Truth
"You may say in your heart, "˜How will we know the word which the LORD has not spoken?' When a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing does not come about or come true, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him. (Dt. 18:21"“22)
True Bible-believing, sanctified Christians the world over are running to this and related verses when it comes to the antics of our latest false prognosticator Harold Camping. Of course, this is just the beginning of what is sure to be a series of similar public debacles in the 18 months ahead of us as Camping has declared that what took place on May 21st was "invisible" but will become "visible" to the whole world this coming October 21st. (Plan your second "Rapture Party" now, kids.) And then we have next year being the last year of the Mayan calendar and an equally high-profile false teacher in Jack Van Impe who has selected December 21, 2012 as his date of doom. (Rapture parties will probably be so passÃƒÂ© by then.) But while such Scripture passages may be of comfort and reassurance among the biblically faithful, the truth is that it has almost no effect on either the weak and nominal Christians following this nonsense much less the unsaved who do not subscribe to anything Christian to begin with. Among those who still cling to God's Word there is no problem overcoming the Campings of the world, the real problem is among most everyone else.
An Editorial Opinion
by Elon Moreh
In an age of where the number of Bible translations is at an all time high, and access to the Bible is at a place where it never was before, in a strange kind of paradox, biblical ignorance is at a peak never attained since the Dark Ages. We all know a quick look at the Gospels would have saved these silly people from being taken on a "Camping trip" by Harold. The stupidity of this whole episode simply beggars belief. This guy Camping must so be puffed up with pride with a sense of his own self-importance as to be completely delusional.
However may I add something here. I hope that I don't offend anyone, but I'm going to say it anyway. Really I think Camping is only riding on the back of the Pre-Trib juggernaut driven by the Left Behind camp. Is it not that this unbiblical Pre-Trib with its "we could all dissappear at any moment with no sign or warning" idea has all but exterminated a biblical view of the events preceding Y'shua's Return?
Doomsday Prophet Harold Camping Proven Wrong Again
Have you heard of the pseudo-Christian doomsday prophet Harold Camping?Ã‚Â Today he has once again proven himself to be a false prophet.
Harold Camping, who years ago predicted Judgment Day to be in September Ã‚Â of 1994, has once again predicted the end of the world.Ã‚Â According to Harold Ã‚Â Camping, the return of Christ and the rapture were supposed to happen today, and Judgment Day is/was supposed to begin today, May 21, 2011.
But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves. (2 Pe. 2:1)
Moriel recently received links to an author's website for one of his books which, among other things, purports to have deciphered the true meaning of "666". Because Jacob's latest book on the Antichrist (Shadows of the Beast) is about to come out, it was suggested that he provide a biblical response to this specific assertion. But when we looked at the rest of the website and the other books authored, we quickly realized this was not simply the case of a brother in the Lord who was making a mistake in earnest about the mark of the Beast. His other writings were so contra-scriptural to the basic truths of biblical Christianity that we can consider him nothing less than an outright heretic regardless of what he posits about End Times issues. No one should be surprised that his notions of the meaning of "666" are bizarre when his ideas of God's salvific plan are nothing short of heresy. Why bother responding to an error in the handling of prophecy when there is no hope until they correct the most egregious errors in their faith?
