Let Us Go With You

Ten men from all the nations will grasp the garment of a Jew saying, ‘Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.’ (Zechariah 8:23b) This is a passage often quoted by Christians who seek to love the Jewish people and join them in their celebrations and commitment to Israel….

Disdain for heritage

Secular Attitudes A Tikkun leader was invited to the home of a native born Israeli minister for a Sabbath meal. He was taken aback when there was no lighting of Sabbath candles, no blessings over the bread and the wine, and no Sabbath liturgy (traditionally based on Genesis 2:1-3).  Some Israeli believers have a strong… Read more »

Much of the theology is being taught to believers by preaching media stars and church leaders whom I would call low information preachers. They may have charisma, and they can hold a crowd well, but sometimes they say… Read more »

Many, but not all, of our readers are familiar with a movement called The Word of Faith Movement.
