The Bible commands us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem (Psalm 122:6), to speak out for Zion’s sake (Isaiah 62:1) to be watchmen on the walls of Jerusalem (Isaiah 62:6) and to bless the Jewish people (Genesis 12:3). These and so many other verses of the Bible have one overriding message – as Christians we have a Biblical obligation to defend Israel and the Jewish people in their time of need. Source

Taken out of context so that he, Pastor John Hagee, can live the rich life in his mansion, he wil lmisquote and translate,  say whatever needs to be said to get people to follow his Cult. And if you watch this video, you will see that those who follow, are as nutty as the followers of David Koresh in Wacko, Texas.

According to the Form 990 that GETV filed for tax year 2003, Hagee received almost a million dollars in compensation for his work for GETV that year, which amounted to approximately 16 hours per week [10]. (The GETV Board of Directors, which determines his pay, consisted of John Hagee himself, his wife, his son, and a Cornerstone Church member.) However, because he claimed that he worked “80 hours a week” writing books, singing songs, meeting international dignitaries and answering the call to preach the word of God, John Hagee argued: “I deserve every dime I’m getting”

Careful evaluation of the teachings of Hagee, pastor at the San Antonio-based Cornerstone Church, reveals false teaching and a defective view of a basic and essential issue regarding salvation and the Gospel. Hagee preaches another way of salvation for the Jew, which is in direct violation of Paul’s warnings in Galatians 1:6-9.

This theological concept, which has many forms, is primarily referred to as the “Two Covenant” or “Dual Covenant” theory.

“slavery in America was returning to Cornerstone”3 and that each senior “would be auctioned off.”

In March 1996 Hagee caused a furor when he created an uproar in the black community of Texas. Major newspapers of the area reported on his plan to conduct a “slave sale.” The auction was an attempt to raise money for a seniors’ class trip from his private Cornerstone High School. He announced to the congregation that “slavery in America was returning to Cornerstone”3 and that each senior “would be auctioned off.” The highest bidder could have a “slave” work at their house, so the congregation should make plans to “go home with a slave.”

    I probably won’t fully indulge you in your interrogation of me, but I will answer a couple of your questions;
    “You state that “unlike me” you live in a Muslim country! How long have you lived there? Why do you live there if you hate them so much?”
    Do you happen to live in a Muslim nation right now? I didn’t take the time to resolve your IP address from the comments you left on my blog. I have resided in a Muslim nation now for almost 2 years. I live in central Asia currently, but I’ve had the opportunity to spend some time in Arabic lands over the past ten or so years, though I haven’t had the opportunity to visit Israel. I work with an American company which works for Asian companies and governments to bring their telecom and datacom infrastructures into the twentieth century (not an easy task in any case). I do not hate Muslim people. I hate the religion of Islam. I am really cool with many of the locals I work with.
    I am against the worldwide Islamist movement, by the name Muslim Brotherhood (read this too) or Islamic Da’wa party, it’s all the same. There are numerous groups with countless members who use both violent and nonviolent means, but their goals are the same; Islam is under a mandate to spread its faith the world over, by ‘the sword’ if necessary. Here is a tiny subset of the great many Qu’ranic passages that require the forcible spread of Islam and violence against non-Muslims:
    “It is He who has sent forth His apostle with guidance and the true Faith [Islam] to make it triumphant over all religions, however much the idolaters [non-Muslims] may dislike it.” (Surah 9:31-)
    “Fight against such as those to whom the Scriptures were given [Jews and Christians]…until they pay tribute out of hand and are utterly subdued.” (Surah 9:27-)
    “…make war on the leaders of unbelief…Make war on them: God will chastise them at your hands and humble them. He will grant you victory over them…” (Surah 9:12-)
    “Slay them wherever you find them…Idolatry is worse than carnage…Fight against them until idolatry is no more and God’s religion reigns supreme.” (Surah 2:190-)
    “Make war on them until idolatry shall cease and God’s religion shall reign supreme.” (Surah 8:36-)
    “Believers, make war on the infidels who dwell around you. Deal firmly with them.” (Surah 9:121-)
    “Muhammad is God’s apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another.” (Surah 48:29)
    But wait! Islam is the religion of peace! This cannot be, my dear Infidel Parrot! The very definition of the word Islam is PEACE, right? Nope. Islam is the Arabic word for SUBMISSION. Muslims believe that peace is only found by full submission to Allah. Google it.
    It’s obvious that terror is the modus operandi of Islamic fundamental groups the world over, and one reason is that they lack the resources to form a formidable military to advance their theology. The other reason is that Muslims love to play the game “both sides against the middle.” Militant Muslims are bent solely on intimidating and influencing Western policy. The other side, the CAIR side, makes use of the ancient art of Taqiyya, or ‘allowable lies,’ and reassures the West that GOOD Muslims would never perpetrate violence, that Islam is the religion of peace, and Islam means no harm against Western society. GOOD Muslims love to remind us that Western liberties guarantee them the right to practice Islam in our societies. GOOD Muslims are quick to accuse Islam’s critics of ‘Islamophobia’ and racism, while their violent cousins plot terrorism, the demise of the American culture, and the implementation of Sharia in Europe and the US. The GOOD Muslims expect to be granted all of the rights and privileges that they deny non-Muslims in their native lands. I’m not even going to get into jizya, dhimmitude, and state-sanctioned persecution that are found in all of the Muslim theocracies and quasi-theocracies. This is much of the grand hypocrisy of Islam.
    The theology of Islam is catastrophically underestimated as the root source of the violence in Palestine, the incredibly complicated and never-ending war in Iraq, global terrorism, and the social and political unrest in European Islamic settlements. Sure, there are moderate Muslims who choose to interpret the Qu’ran figuratively, who work and pay taxes and simply enjoy the prosperity and liberties of Europe and the US. It’s hard to guess, but maybe only 10-20% of Muslims are intent on world domination. The problem is that those relative few are impossible to distinguish and are protected by the complicit majority of ‘moderate’ Muslims.

    “Is this the “Love” that Jesus preached and you claim to have as a Christian? Have you really read the Bible? Have you read those “violent” or “pedophilic” verses in the Old Testament?”
    What you’re really trying to claim is that the practice of Christianity is just as violent and unjust as the practice of Islam. This is a transparent moral equivalency argument that holds no water. I can’t reconcile Old Testament scripture which commands death and barbaric justice to a modern society’s view of how the world should be. I won’t try. It’s obvious that in this day and age we don’t kill witches and we don’t stone adulterers (only Muslims do that). Christian lands have modern legal systems with reasonable penal codes. The best I can do (from a 20th century Gentile’s perspective) is to say that God intended Old Testament law to rule Israelites within the nation of Israel. I didn’t live in these ancient days, and I’m not a Jew. As a Christian I know that Christ never advocated the barbaric treatment of people. Christ’s life was about giving mercy and grace to people who didn’t deserve it. We Christians should aspire to that. That doesn’t mean we should be doormats to everyone who wishes harm to us though. An important thing to recognize is that the US is a secular nation. The policies of the government are in the best interests of the American people, not God. We ‘evangelical Christians’ will firmly attest to that. To help me answer this I will quote a comment on another blog:
    “I understand how you [see] the good in those [Muslims], and how you dont want to have any fights between people.
    But the truth is when they would get rid of that evil religion, they would be better people.
    But they are so indoctrinated that the Christians are the evil ones and not themselfs.
    The Islam is stuck in time it is a religion of none other than evil.
    Let me ask you these questions, and lets see what you think.
    Has there been a Christian Bin Laden ?
    Has there been any news of a Catholic suicide Bomber that in the name of God or the pope is blowing up innocent people ?
    Was jesus with a 9 year old girl ?
    The faulse prophet Mohammed was.
    Did Jesus told anyone that a woman is a mans property and that she has to do what you say no matter what and if not you may punish her ?
    Mohammed had forced everyone that did not want to be part of his to satan praying religion with the sword.
    Did Jesus force anyone to join him ?
    Does the Catholic or any other christian religion say they will kill you if you dont want to be a christian no more ?
    Think before you choose for Islam.
    I think after all is taken over and you are living in your country with the islam as the big boss and living under sharia law and you wont be able to pay a bill and your hand is cut off as punishment you will think back of my words.
    But then my friend it is too late.
    Look for more truth about the religion Islam on faithfreedom.org”
    I think this guy makes some great points, don’t you? To answer the rest of you question, yes, I frequently study the Bible. I love my brothers, both Christian and non-Christian.

    “We sent thos troops there, just like we did during Vietnam, Korea, Japan, you name it. We sent them to their deaths because we lied to them. These lies are now known since much of the information has been declassified. And your children and grandchildren will then be ashamed of their forefathers!”
    You’re going to need to elaborate on this one. What are these ‘declassified lies?’

  3. IP,

    This is more like it! This is more your style when replying. I say this because I was a little impressed with “your” other comment under “Not So Cool Facts about Israel.” You were another person or those comments were not really yours. “You” came across as a person of knowledge (as wrong as most of your arguments were) with the ability to debate.

    You seem to be adamant about criticizing Muslims or the Islamic faith based on.. nothing! You seem to repeat what most rednecks, neocons or anti-Semites claim without producing one shred of evidence or support the argument.You state that “unlike me” you live in a Muslim country! How long have you lived there? Why do you live there if you hate them so much? Is this the “Love” that Jesus preached and you claim to have as a Christian? Have you really read the Bible? Have you read those “violent” or “pedophilic” verses in the Old Testament?

    For your information and pleasure I lived and worked in the Middle East for over 15 years (including Israel). I saw what you will never see on any US news channel. I saw Nazism being applied to its maximum against all: Christians, Muslims and even Jews who stand up for what is right! Rachel Corrie was buldozed (by the Israelis) to death for God’s sake. Do you know who she is? I saw how Israeli soldiers will run-over reporters with their jeeps to scare and intimidate the rest from covering the facts. This is the Israel you love. And the two videos I have on this blog are extremely accurate.

    You stated that I “underestimate the significance of the Islamic ideology!” Pardon? This is the equivalent of a Muslim saying that one underestimates the Christian ideology! I’m sure that by now you have seen or read the topic: In God We Trust.. Christian Embassy: the new Crusaders? How about this Christian ideology? Do we judge the whole faith by the few insane militants and ignore the complete teachings of a faith, any faith?

    I’m also quite disturbed with your comments about our troops and dimissing their deaths when trying to compare that to deaths from car accidents! This is despicable. We sent thos troops there, just like we did during Vietnam, Korea, Japan, you name it. We sent them to their deaths because we lied to them. These lies are now known since much of the information has been declassified. And your children and grandchildren will then be ashamed of their forefathers!

    “And if you watch this video, you will see that those who follow, are as nutty as the followers of David Koresh in Wacko, Texas.”

    Why? Do they have an arsenal of illegal weapons stashed in a fortified compound ready to declare war on the ATF and FBI? Does Hagee (not that I agree with him) declare that he is Jesus Christ incarnate? Is Hagee a pedophile?

    Your comparison between Cornerstone Church of San Antonio and the Branch Davidian cult is irresponsible. I can’t say I agree with all of his doctrine, but how is he hurting anybody besides offending them? Can’t people just ignore what they don’t like?

    OOps, it seems I have soiled your neoliberal PC blog.

    Hagee is preaching an incorrect gospel? I do not debate such, as I also criticize Hagee frequently. But I must ask you: which gospel do YOU preach? That of NPR, AlJazeera, and the Guardian Online?

    What if you choose to be a slave, but you’re not allowed to? Most of us choose to be slaves of society, despite it’s many setbacks (JJ Rousseau had some alternatives in Emile if I remember correctly).

    Praying for peace is fine by me, but working for it by not occupying other land (and crucial water supplies) would be even better.

    And I have come to understand the crusades. Jerusalem was promised to all religions(well, 3 actually, but they’re all monotheistic religions, and those are generally not very tolerant or regarding of others’ faith thanks to the rise of organised religion), all in one spot.
    Seeing how white people came all that way…Let’em murder the local population, it just seems fair to me.

    And Jesus was black, which ironically isn’t the reason why he spent all his time with the outcasts of society. According to the bible, he choose that path. Of course, that book has about as much truth to it as the koran.

  7. Hafez says:

    defend israel and you will go down with them. israel will rise and remain erect until islam eliminates it.. Allahu Akbar!

  8. “Anyone is free not to be a slave”

    I say no one can be a slave and those who enslave others should be drowned, killed, tortured then questioned about such despicable practice!

  9. No slavery is a basic human right that has been agreed on since the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was done in the 40’s. See the Youth for Human Rights videos – anyone is free to not be a slave.
