Original Sin: The Roots of Christian Zionism

It is common knowledge that many so-called Christians throw unconditional, unyielding support behind the Jewish state. Known as Christian Zionists, or more recently “Israel-firsters”—indicating their degree of loyalty over and above the interests of their own country—it is estimated they are over 50 million strong in the United States alone. By stripping biblical passages out of their proper context and ignoring historical perspective, Christian Zionist leaders have convinced the masses that Jesus Christ will return when all Jews are gathered in Palestine, even if it means the systemic destruction of the Palestinian people.

Questions remain how such a blatantly un-biblical doctrine hijacked an entire segment of the Christian community; moreover, how the doctrine came to be so widely accepted not only in churches but in the halls of political power.

It has been argued that Christian Zionism originated as a spin-off of secular Zionism; that Christians were co-opted by political Zionists in order to gain support for a Jewish homeland in Palestine. Ironically, Palestine was sixth on the list for such a homeland at Theodor Herzl’s First Zionist Congress in 1897, behind locales including Argentina, Uganda and Turkey. It was in fact the Christian Zionists who were orchestrating the takeover of Palestine from the beginning.

The Politics of Christian Zionism 1891-1948 by Paul C. Merkley provides startling evidence that the poisoned theology of Christian Zionism predates Herzl, long considered the father of Zionism. In fact, Herzl received a tremendous amount of support from William Hechler, the son of Anglican missionaries and author of an 1893 pamphlet entitled “The Restoration of the Jews to Palestine According to Prophecy.” It was Hechler who arranged meetings between Herzl and Kaiser Wilhelm II, promoting the Zionist ambition to usurp Palestine among world leaders.

Early support for Zionism among United States policymakers was manifested through a handful of misguided religious nuts who manipulated leaders by flattering their sordid egotistical fantasies. According to Merkley, President Harry S. Truman compared himself to Cyrus, the Persian king who allowed Jews to return to Palestine in ancient times after the Babylonian captivity, although Zionist sympathies have run deep in America since its foundation.

The Puritans drew a parallel between themselves and the Children of Israel, escaping religious persecution in Europe just as the ancient Hebrews were led out of Egypt. America was their “Promised Land,” making way for the doctrine of Manifest Destiny (that it was God’s divine will for the new country to stretch from sea to sea) that justified the abhorrent treatment of Native Americans. By the same token, Christian Zionism justifies the killing and ethnic cleansing of Palestinians to this day. Plymouth Brethren minister John Nelson Darby (1800-1882) popularized the doctrine under the name “dispensationalism,” which was further spread by the Scofield Reference Bible published in 1909.

That edition contained copious footnotes instructing readers how to interpret Bible verses and prophecy centered around the re-establishment of Israel as a modern nation-state.

Thus the Zionist heresy was mass marketed to a largely ignorant populace who are convinced they do not have enough sense to read the Bible for themselves. Today, support for Israel has gained momentum through apocalyptic preaching by televangelists who make large profits for supporting Israel. They have co-opted Christian laypeople into thinking they can bring about Christ’s return, ending suffering on earth.

It would be scary enough if such ideas were confined to churches, but Zionist Christians have organized political lobbies such as Christians United for Israel (CUFI). Arguably, they have considerable influence over US foreign policy, particularly effective with neo-conservatives as witnessed during the George W. Bush administration. Numerous Christian groups encourage Jewish immigration to what is now called Israel through financial contributions while assisting ultra-orthodox Jewish groups to promote settlement expansion on Palestinian land.

Not only do Zionists distort biblical history, they spread lies about more modern events as well. Proponents of Israel will often pander the tired Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini obfuscation in an attempt to connect all Palestinians to Adolph Hitler. Husseini was imposed upon the Palestinians in 1921 by the British Mandate’s first high commissioner, a British Jew named Herbert Samuel. Husseini was selected over the rival Nashashibi candidate and favored by the Zionist Commission. Husseini allied with Hitler to oppose the British, falling into the trap as so many others who have believed “the enemy of my enemy is my friend.”

In this manner Christian Zionists have the ability to reach outside their own cult and snag more secular (although nonetheless misguided) individuals by linking Arabs—particularly exploiting the blood connection between Husseini and late President Yasser Arafat—with the epitome of “anti-Semitic” evil.

These same “Christians” are poised to use the anniversary of the September 11 tragedy to accuse Muslims of celebrating the attacks. In reality, the end of Ramadan, Eid Al-Fitr, coincides with that date this year.

Meanwhile, Florida pastor Terry Jones, leader of the innocuous-sounding Dove Outreach Center, is encouraging Christians to burn a Qur’an on September 11.

Although emboldened by all the media attention, proponents of these views are fortunately far from mainstream Christianity. The problem is that Christians who do take seriously Christ’s message of love are reluctant to gently—or not so gently—correct those hate-mongers masquerading as Christians. We must be willing to take back our faith by outspokenly refuting the heresy of Christian Zionism and its hateful manifestations both at home and abroad.

    “Jonathan Williams recorded in his LEGIONS OF SATAN, 1781, that Cornwallis revealed to Washington that ‘a holy war will now begin on America, and when it is ended, America will be supposedly the citadel of freedom, but her millions will unknowingly be loyal subjects to the Crown.’ Cornwallis went on to explain what would seem to be a self-contradiction: ‘Your churches will be used to teach the Jew’s religion, and in less than two hundred years, the whole nation will be working for divine world government. That government that they believe to be divine will be the British Empire. All religions will be permeated with Judaism without even being noticed by the masses, and they will all be under the invisible all-seeing eye of the Grand Architect of Freemasonry.'”

    I believe the government has employed Paid Zionists to infiltrate and divide Christianity over the issue of Zionism.

    And whole the sheeple sit in front of the tellie and believe exactly what they’re told, nothing will change.

    In order to effect change, we have to bring divisions to a halt and return to common law, placing corporations accountable to common law, not the obverse, placing individuals accountable to corporate statutes.

    But nobody moves. They’re still sitting in front of the idiot box.

    An interesting thesis, but I don’t see the connection to original sin. But yes, support for Jewish Zionism is common among dispensationalist Christians, because dispensationalism offers support for it.

    But i thought the roots of Jewish Zionism were actually similar to those of modern Hellenism and other varieties of central European and Balkan nationalism — the German romanticism and views propagated by Herder and Fichte.

    the american revolution was carried out and planned by freemasonry. this is why the movement got off the ground and achieved success. there was a organization and there were contacts all over the colonies. the american army officers were mostly masons. to my way of thinking, any freedoms and liberties we as americans achieved then, was merely a byproduct of the grand plan. it was a byproduct, they were willing to accept at the time. after all, it didn’t really matter. then as now, the jews had control of the bank of england and were pushing to control the united states by the same methods they used to control england. as george bush was said to have stated one time………the constitution is just a G. D. piece of paper. perhaps it always was just a silly piece of paper for the sheep to cling to , while they thought they were free men who could do whatever it was that they wanted, now that they had won the revolutionary war, or so it seemed. it is my contention, and i hate to say this. i really do, but it is my contention, that the united states was created in order to give jews a place to practice their arts of parasitism, and when the time came, they would move on a national homeland for themselves, somewhere in the world. it was decided, that that homeland was to be palestine. so they accomplished this in a little over 50 years , with out help in two world wars. now that they have achieved this, we are now no longer needed. so the takedown of america, has started on many fronts, militarity, financially, culturally and spiritually. of course, none of these fundamental accomplishments would have been possible without help from willing dupes, shabbaz goy, if you will, who say yes to money and the trappings of power and become traitors to their race and to their countries of origin. so it has been here. i have heard people say, time and time again, that someone has a mortgage that they must pay for, children that they must raise, retirement benefits that they must look forward to and protect, so they remain silent and play the game that the jews have laid out. how i hate to hear this. there is no honor in this, no integrity. none whatsoever. where are men with these simple, yet profound traits , these days? where are they? nowhere to be found. when we look at our government, we see ourselves in the mirror. men and women, having a false pride, egos, and a false sense of self, and all of this , is perpetuated and extended and made to happen, because the jew knows how to use people and what their weaknesses are, and he exploits this to his benefit. but, sometimes creations can and do take on a life of their own. one can only hope this will happen here. when you tell a man, generation after generation, that he is free and he has freedom, even though in reality he is not free. nevertheless, this causes his psyche to be ingrained in a kind of mindset that tells him he is a free man. maybe in this one instance the jews have tripped up. they allowed us to be free and think we were free, while they were about their dirty business. now they want to take it away from us. but with the internet, another took invented to control us, but in the end, being used to spread information, the americans and others in this world have helped each other learn the truth, the real truth about what is happening. this was another mistake. for over 4 years now, we have heard rumors about a impending attack by either israel and/or america on the iranians but so far it has not happened. next week, the iranians take delivery on uranium fuel rods. if an attack happens after these are installed, there will be some serious problems with radiation hazards all over the middle east, not to mention, repercussions from this attack, that will reverberate the world over. this may be another mistake. perhaps the jews are in a hurry it seems. like madam
    Paquita de Shishmareff said in her book , “waters flowing eastward” ….the jews have no sense of timing. to me, they are in a big hurry now. they want this world government plan to happen , imho, in this generation. they taste it now, they are so close.

    but our founding fathers warned us about these parasites….maybe just maybe, one of these days real soon, by whatever means necessary, we can achieve what many thought was the destiny of america, to be a shining light on a hill to the world to show the world how it can and should be done. right now our light is dim and almost out. but there is hope. hope that one day soon, that light will shine again. and as far as that G. D. piece of paper, so carefully and thoughtfully crafted over 200 years ago, by hook or by crook, will once again, become the law of the land and in the process, free us with the help of the patriot from the clutches of the jewish parasite. hope springs eternal and there is always a chance that it could happen. one thing is for sure. it has to happen, it must happen, there are no other options. by whatever means necessary.

    Original sin: the roots of christian zionism.
    Good easy article to read and understand but I fail to see the connection between the two.
    Original sin itself is an incorrect teaching erroneously taken from the bible.
    First; we are not born sinful. Wrong doing involving spiritual guilt is only so when we come to understand it as wrong. A baby may cry all night selfishly wanting mum to forget about her own sleep requirements but to comfort baby. Baby has no understanding only desire. A child with understaning(say 12 yrs) may desire another child’s possession and even steal it but he/she is knowingly selfish and knowingly doing wrong. He has understanding and desire.
    Second; as a result of believing we are born sinful(original sin) we are then taught that we are unable to stop sinning because it is our nature. The bible in many places tells us to stop sinning and a just god would never ask the impossible of us. If I observe my neighbors wife and see how desireable she is it is my choice to lust after her or not.
    The bible tells us we have a nature of the flesh but does not speak of a sinful nature. Except for some very poor translations.

    a look at the fat man’s salary requirements in 2003, the last year this was done before fatboy
    changed his bookkeeping methods per the IRS rules to hide his financial dealings.

    so the traitor lives like a king in the gated community at the dominion, makes a fortune and then sells his country out in the mean time with his judaizing teaching heresy….


    and is protected by jewish former IDF and shin bet bodyguards…

    i can tell you one thing. i sure hope kapner is successful in his quest to have his foundation somehow some way, bring the Alexander Solzhenitsyn book “200 years together” to america since the jews have stonewalled it being printed here, because of its (perceived to them) derogatory information and history about jews in russia….

    This article seems based on solid facts.

    Did Mayer Amschel Bauer ROTHSCHILD not say: “Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes it’s laws”?

    Who owns the criminal private Bank of England and the private Federal Reserve Bank?

    Zionism, Islamo-Fascism, Radical Islam, Islamic Terrorism, the Bible, Christian Zionists, etc., are just gigantic distractions for public consumption!

    It is true however that there are 40-70 million Christian Zionists who want to see the extermination of Arabs and Muslims and the destruction of Islam as a leading religion, but what has to be known is that the usurious Bankers are behind all this! To me these people are not Christians, deluded or not. They are just Zionists in disguise, hiding behind Christianity and Jesus. Televangelists are well-known liars and embezzlers far from the Christian way of life!

    “…how the doctrine came to be so widely accepted not only in churches but in the halls of political power.”

    Religious Faith will often/always accept the unacceptable. As for the halls of power, they are not found in the White House or 10 Downing Street, but in the Synagogue of Satan, ADL, AIPAC, CRIF, CHABAD LUBAVICH, CFR, IMF…!

    Fiund out how as soon as Napoleon Bonaparte abolished Jewish Usury, he lost the war, and as soon as he had embraced Islam he was murdered? The question was never about re-locating the Jews anywhere else in the world and it was out of the question of taking them to the Holy Land because Jews preached for two thousand years that only GOD could do this. I do not think Christian Zionists planned the take over of Palestine when it was Rothshild and Hitler who set up Israel on Palestinian land, and not in the name of Christianity. Even Napoleon wanted a homeland for Jews in Palestine because he did not want them in Europe!

    The term secular is Atheism (Godless Humanism) in disguise.

    Hello, appreciate everyone’s feedback and I didn’t mean for folks to get tripped up unnecessarily on the title. “Original Sin” when I thought of incorporating it into the title, really had nothing to do with its actual definition or concept as it is understood by the Church. By “Original Sin” I was referring to the roots of where the evil idea was hatched–the “original sin”–not only to destroy Palestine, but to introduce such a heresy into Christianity. I would also refer anyone wanting to read more on the topic to Steven Sizer’s Christian Zionism: Roadmap to Armegeddon.

    Katman, I think you got it. But there were a minority of good guys in the founder crew.
    I would single out Jefferson, Patrick Henry and George Mason.
    “By their works shall thee know them”…if you will.

    Notice, the Declaration is a far cry from the Federal [coup] Constitution.

    This is especially true if you campair the original Declaration from Jefferson’s hand, before it was edited in committee–where the obvious hypocracy of keeping slavery alive was maintained.

    Hamilton and John Jay were obvious agents for “The Crown”

    It is interesting to see how we are easily distracted. Money is the root of all evil, says one version of the Bible. Yes, Zionism is pure evil. Therefore is it not logical that money should be its cause, Biblically speaking?

    When the modern Alchemists of the Jewish Kabbalah (Bohemian Grove) made Plutonium from Uranium, split the Atom, exploded their weapons of death, did they not become the GODS of DEATH on earth? SATAN himself, all powerful and in all glory!

    If there is any such thing as an Original Sin, it surely is GOD’s humorous creation of the Devil on one side and of us on the other. But, to win over the Devil, God says we must abide by the rules, and we sure did not and do not abide by any Divine Rule!

    SATAN, I see him every single day. Well, I saw him again yesterday on the bus stop! I was still fasting at 5.30 P.M. and waiting for my bus when I saw three very elegantly and immaculately dressed youngsters, around their twenties. All three wore beautiful long brown garbs, a head covering and a slight beard. I assumed they were Muslims and approached them, and asked one of them.

    -Can I ask you a question?
    -Yes, mumbled one of them.
    -Do you know who bombed London on 7/7/2005?
    -Why do you ask?
    -Well, I thought you were living here.
    -So, what is your problem? Why do you ask us?
    -Did I not ask you permission to ask you a question and you said yes?
    -Yes, but why are you asking us? Is it because we are Muslims? Why don’t you ask others? (And, one of them irritatingly tried to call out some other passer-by…All three were having a go at me and became very agitated and gesticulated in a frenetic manner. They spoke to another Muslim who had stopped his car to see what was going on.)
    -One of them grabbed my arm and said: Go your way!
    -I said: Don’t you touch me! Don’t you know you are in England and this is considereed as battery? He released me and all three moved away to the gas station where their car was parked. They droved off and waved their arms in a threatening manner at me. I do not recall all the other things they said in anger.

    I had a reason to ask this question because some Muslim groups are convinced that Muslims bombed London on 7/7 because the Freemasonic Police and Zionist media said they had confessed their crimes! They do not commemorate all the endless Holocausts of Muslims, but they invited me to join them in their prayers for the victims of 7/7. I sent them to hell, where they rightly belong!

    Now, to me it is yet more evidence that SATAN has taken possession of even the fasting Muslims! These youngsters are convinced they are Muslims because they are dressed like Muslims, fast like Muslims, but they are incapable of behaving like Muslims!

    Now, Jews of the Kabbalah worship the Devil, sacrifice to the Devil, dress like humans (not always, because G-String…), and do Devilish deeds, one of which is using Zionism and Israelism as a weapon against the whole world, not because there is any truth in them or their origins, but because they have the bomb and print all the money they want with which they have bought/stolen all that they want in the world, including the world and its inhabitants, and its religions.

    I maintain that Zionism, Judaism, Christianty, Islam, GOD, just like democracy, are all distractions to keep us busy. THE DEVIL IS INSIDE US!

    When my babies ask me where is ALLAH, I say: In your mind, your heart and in all the Signs around us, the visible and the invisible. When they ask me where if Shaytaan, I say: In your mind and heart. They ask me what is Shaytaan, and I say: Shaytaan comes running as soon as he sees your grandfather getting angry at you or at the neighbour. Why, they ask? Because ALLAH does not like me to be angry, but sometimes I cannot help it. Now, they got me because everytime I raise my voice at their little mischiefs, the litte angel will immediately say: Grandpa, Shaytaan! So, I control myself.

    The whole thing about Zionism, demoncracy, rape, crime, mass murder, lies, swindling, etc., is just a big devilish joke, because it can never happen unless WE allow it to happen, but we are trying all the time to point the finger at the others when we are the guilty ones!

    Do we really want to see Zionism (or any other ism) neutralised, destroyed? EASY! Let us all stop watching television, buying newspapers, being addicted to Hollywood, smoking, drinking, breathing and eating poison, and wasting our time in futile recreation! The change must come in us before we expect it to happen in others. IT HAPPENED IN ME ALREADY, A LONG TIME AGO!

    Zionism and its mother USURY (its origin dates from the times of Julius Caesar and before) will never stop unless we do the right things all the way. The Rothschilds did not create Apartheid Israel on Earth with Judaism or the Bible, but WITH MONEY WE GAVE THEM, and by the power the Devil has upon most of us!

    It is ranting, my GOD! Yes, it is. Sorry!

    Tammye- thanks for the Clarification. You probably meant ‘The Original Sin of Zionism,’ or something to that effect.

    The other posters are treading all OVER the map, on matters religious, political, philosophical, and cultural… which is, I suppose, the right of ‘free speech.’ But the caveat my Bishop told me, and numerous college instructors, and which I say to my charges, is this:

    Engage mind before engaging mouth.
    (or keyboard, in this instance)

    Dispensationalism IS a heresy. Clearly, millenarianism (which is what the Church of the Ages- whether Catholic, Orthodox, or traditional Reformed/Lutheran/Anglican has agreed upon) was considered a ‘Jewish fable’ (as St. Paul calls such) for a long time. The reason it took hold, was both due to an error of identification, as well as a desire to ‘be as gods’ (as Satan said, when he tempted Eve).

    EVERY NATION in Europe, expelled those whom the world nowadays calls, “Jews,” at one time or another. That is historic fact. The second historic fact, is that England did it back when it MEANT something- in 1290. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edict_of_Expulsion

    England, (and English-speaking persons) had NO JEWS of any appreciable numbers, therefore, until Cromwell (the Puritan a-historical ‘king’ that was not a king’) ASKED THEM BACK in large numbers, in 1640-1660 (Cromwell’s effective reign)- a four-hundred year hiatus of bliss, as far as English Christendom was concerned. We then have the fictionalized ‘wunderJew’ in Ivanhoe, and the real Jew, in Shakespeare’s Shylock. And the two have fought it out in the English mind ever since….

    Add to that, the general ‘conversion’ of a Turkic tribe known as the Khazars to Talmudic religion(which is NOT the same as O.T. ‘religion’) in the late 8th century http://www.christusrex.org/www2/koestler/

    And Western history therefore,knows only this impostor race as the ‘Chosen People.’ Cromwell’s admission of these historically greedy Turks, allowed the “Bank of England” to be established by Rothschild’s party, and therein lies all the problems of the modern world today in finance, and usury trade! Russia and the lands in the ‘Pale of Settlement’ KNEW who these impostors were, but Byzantium and Rome stopped talking to one another, back in 1054, so they were of no concern to the west, who thought they ‘knew it all.’

    But, back to the racial mis-identification of the Khazars as the “Judeans” of Bible times, by the time of the later Puritan movement known as Postmillenialism, (17th-18th century) which thought that ‘Paradise’ could be achieved by [regenerate] European Man’s bootstrap efforts, various and sundry schemes to ‘convert the Jews’ had morphed from the original catholic vision of the City of God, to a factional protestantism, where each sect, and leader would ‘be as gods’, instead of listening to the unified voice of the Church of the Ages. And THAT factionalism, and ignorance about those ‘who say they are Jews, but are not’ [Rev. 2:8,9] gave rise to the Darbyites, and later, the Scofield Reference Bible, which popularized the Dispensational heresy.

    Modern traditionalist churchmen are trying to reign in this judaizing heresy – http://www.stephensizer.com/books/christian-zionism/

    But the modern ‘know-nothing’ American ‘Evan-jelly-goo’ cares little for rational thought, reasoned discourse, and connection to the church historic. And therein lies the fallacy, as well as the DANGER of CZ.

    Original sin is a reality. Just look at crime stats, if you doubt it. Those who say there is no such thing, must also think their sh*t doesn’t smell, if you’ll pardon the analogy!

    -Fr. John

    The Original Sin was: eating of the fruit of the tree of ‘knowledge’, prohibited by “god” himself in saying, for when you shall eat you shall surely die. Unfortunately, this ‘god’ wasn’t too keen on telling the truth just as the authors of the Genesis were not too keen on it either.

    When watching the unfolding of current world events one should view them like watching chess masters playing “the greatest game”. Moves are complicated and planned far in advance of the current moves on the board. We should all remember Albert Pike’s plan for the “game” of the Illuminati written in the mid 1860’s. The state of Israel was set up during the last century to be sacrificed in the soon coming hot WWIII. While much attention is given to the Israeli’s evil deeds think about the next moves of the “master”. The Israelis are being used, as is the United States and the American people, to bring about a Satanic kingdom at the end of WWIII, not a jewish kingdom. Unfortunately, Christians spend too much of their time going to church listening to ignorant men and women who think they are doing God’s work. Better they should stay home, study the Bible, read history and learn to “connect the dots”.

    When you examine this phenomenon objectively you’ll have to admit that SELFISHNESS is the root cause of the fervent “love” many so-called Christians have for the secular State of Israel. They WANT the Temple to be built, so they finance it. Why? The quicker Antichrist sits in the Temple proclaiming himself to be god, the quicker the Jews will go through a hell of a lot of suffering under Antichrist, and the quicker Christ will have to come back to rescue (who else?) the CHRISTIANS out of this dog-eat-dog world. And don’t forget, the Rapture (evacuation of Christians) must happen before the Tribulation Period. Getting that Temple built is an added stimulus to getting the Tribulation started, so it’s only logical Christ would feel under pressure to clear these Christians out before Antichrist sets up housekeeping there. Not exactly true, but that’s how a lot of Christians think.

    This is exactly how we should view things! The best chess players make the best politicians, and the greatest mass murderers.

    It is all in the war and chess game strategy!

    Once again, another excellent and timely piece by Tammy Obeidallah.

    I read her essay earlier today in Palestine Chronicle.
    For those who expressed reservation about the title of her article

    Even the Scofield Reference Bible has been redacted to give a different spin on Cyrus Scofield’s comments on Genesis 12. In my copy of the 1917 Edition (inherited from a great-aunt who was a Pentacostalist), Scofield quite clearly points out that the statement to Abraham that “in thy seed shall all nations of the earth be blessed” is fulfilled through the followers of both Ishmael and Isaac.

    Remember also that Isaac had two sons – Esau (the father of the Edomites) and Jacob nicknamed Israel. The Christian churches have always taught that all Christians are the spiritual descendants of Abraham, and this applies to the Muslims also. Yet in the 1945 Edition this has been changed to the Jews only as being the inheritors of this statement to Abraham.

    Even so, it seems to me to involve quite a leap to change this to solely refer to the present-day state calling itself Israel.

    Israel as Jacob grandson of Abraham as the sole inheritor of the statement is conceivable (though wrong); Israel as a tract of land is quite another matter. By this logic it would be feasible for Virginia (the US state) or Queensland (the Australian province) to claim the British Crown from Queen Elizabeth.
