The Anti-Semitic ‘Christian’ is a contradiction in terms.

Anti-Semitism, hatred against the Jewish nation, comes a long way.  God foresaw it when He said to Abram,  ‘I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you, I will curse….’   

In this blog we want to concentrate on those who claim to be followers of Jesus, yet denounce the Jewish nation.  Scripture teaches that Jesus is, ‘…the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David;’ 2and also that, ‘I [Jesus] am the Root and the Offspring of David.’ 3  Jesus is a Jew. 

#  The problem of ‘Christian’ Anti-Semitism  

Believers in Jesus are ‘related’ to the Jews through Abraham.  ‘Understand, then, that those who believe [in Jesus] are children of Abraham.’ 4  The Jews are the descendants of Abraham, as is our Bridegroom. 

#  What we should remember 

  • ”If anyone says, ‘I love God,’ yet hates his brother, he is a liar.  For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen.’’
  • Paraphrased it would mean: anyone who claims to love Jesus, yet hates the Jews, lies.   You cannot love Jesus whom you have not seen, but hate the ‘family’ of Jesus, whom you can see.  

#  Anti-Semitism is a dangerous game to play.  

  • Judgment belongs to God, never to His people.  However much we want to, God will never accept our judgment on His nation.  He promised He will see to it Himself.  
  • Scripture never teaches that Jesus renounced His nationality.  ‘Christian Anti-Semitism’ might be difficult to explain to the Judge, Jesus the Jew.   

Conclusion

Jesus is God’s beloved Son, our Saviour and Bridegroom.  Either we love Him and His people and pray for them, or we don’t.  The Anti-Semitic ‘Christian’ is a contradiction in terms.

As you can see in the photo, there are two of us. We live and work together 24/7, studying and enjoying our grandchildren. Our passion is to know and understand what will happen after death. Is there a way to provide for and invest in that?

  1. Interesting, that the anti-semetic movement was initiated at the time of Constantine around 340 a.d. who at the time sought a conduit through which to transfer taxes from all the various countries Rome had and Colonized around the third century.
    On one of these conquests, as he travelled, the thought of establishing a religion for that purpose. At this time Christianity, Judiasm and Islam were banned from Rome.

    According to secular writings, while on horseback, a cloud formation in the shape of a cross presented itself in the sky to him.

    Constantine believed that this was a sign from God that he should un-ban Christianity, and declare it to be the official religion of all Rome and Roman occupied countries.

    Roman tax was processed and disguised as Tithes.
    Christianity prospered under Constantine and believers became arrogant, in beleiving they were Gods chosen religion. They beleived they were doing God a favor by attacking the Jews.
    Later on Martin Luther further intensified hatered for the Jews. Accusing them of Deocide, murdering God. These writings are said to have inspired Hitler with thoughts of genoside, against the Jews.
