I would like to welcome those readers who have come to my blog through, Jewish Israel. After ten years of fighting against and exposing messianic “Jews” in and around where I live in North Carolina, I am finding more and like-minded people on the web.
Where I live there is a minimal effort to educate our Jewish community about evangelical Christians and their deceptive methodology to convert Jews. My efforts are often met with disdain as they fear it will dry up some of the “Christian funds” to Israel. The fact that there are now about 160 Christian funded messianic groups in Israel doesn’t seem to faze them.
Sam Nadler leader of, Hope of Israel and Word of Messiah Ministries is headquartered here. His website offers an on-line course on how to plant ministries. Sid Roth, distributor of, They Thought For Themselves, ( testimonies from ten Jews that accepted Jesus) has moved his, It’s Supernatural and Messianic Ministry here from Atlanta. The man is certifiable but he raises millions to convert Jews.Then there is the grandfather of big time evangelism, Billy Graham Ministries. His son Franklin, opened,”The Billy Graham Library” on the property of their evangelistic association. You may not think that Graham’s ministry is affiliated or supports messianic groups but you would be wrong. About five years ago I responded to Billy Graham’s column in our local paper; yes he has a daily column. Instead of answering my remark that I found a comment he made offensive to Jews, I received an invitation to join with and literature about, messianic “Judaism.” Just because he doesn’t advertise it, doesn’t mean his money doesn’t support it.
So you can see that evangelical Christians are busy little bees in my city and that’s not even counting the many other small messianic groups that keep popping up. Still, this community refuses to face the truth. Southern Jews have been afraid to, “rock the boat” for so long that they make it easy for these evangelicals to flourish. Well, I may have lived here for almost twenty years but I’m still a brassy New Yorker.
Any suggestions, thoughts, or support you can offer would be appreciated. Welcome to my blog!
