The first act of Christian cults is to distort the Bible’s original, clear teaching in favor of more recent “revelations” or interpretations. Cults may emphasize the few verses in Scripture that seem to support their beliefs but ignore a host which don’t. This is like taking scissors to huge sections of the Bible. Jesus says anyone who removes even a line of His Revelation will have their name erased from His book of life (Rev. 22:19).

Evangelism is the central emphasis of the New Testament. The Book of Acts opens with the Christian’s duty to proclaim the good news of salvation first to Jews in Israel and then to the whole world. Yet Christian Zionism is not concerned with evangelism to Jews. The foremost Christian Zionist leader today, Pastor John Hagee, forbids evangelism of Jews or even mention of the name of Jesus in his huge “pro-Israel” rallies.(See Hagee: Unrepentant Heretic) Christian Zionism is primarily devoted to upholding the right of a nation of Christ-rejecting Jews to occupy Palestine. It is primarily a political, not evangelistic, movement. How do Christian Zionist leaders justify such departure?

I agree. The promise made to Abraham and his family of a land and family has been expanded. The family is now all who confess Jesus as Lord -- Jew and Gentile alike. The land (the inheritance) is no longer a lot strip of territory along the Mediterranean Sea, but the whole cosmos renewed and restored.

A lot of folk would benefit from a good dose of N.T. Wright.
