ADL SAYS CHRISTIANITY, COULTER ANTI-SEMITIC
By Rev. Ted Pike
18 Oct 07
Jesus said, “I am the Way, and the Truth, and
the Life: no one comes to the Father, but through Me.” (John
14:6) The Anti-Defamation League says Christ’s claim to deity
and exclusive mediacy to God the Father is not just old time religion
anymore; it’s dangerous anti-Semitism. (See, ADL
Condemns Ann Coulter's Comment)
ADL’s charge comes in response to bland, but very Christian
remarks by conservative pundit Ann Coulter, interviewed by Donny
Deutsch on CNBC, October 8. She said that Jews, without faith in
Christ, were not “complete.”
Sound like Hitler? Hardly. Coulter was saying what the New Testament
and authentic Christianity has taught for millennia: Jesus is God,
the second member of the Trinity, Creator of the universe and each
one of us. We are debtors to Him at birth. Our whole purpose is to
know and trust the One who created us and to lead as many others
as possible to such fulfillment, joy, and rest of soul in Him.
Of course, Christianity also teaches that we are judged by a reasonable
God, according to the light we have. St. Paul makes it clear that,
when people “who do not have the law do instinctively the things
of the law, these, not having the law, are a law unto themselves,
in that they show the work of the law written in their hearts…" (Romans
2:14-15) He is saying that, if geographical, cultural, religious,
or communication barriers insulate anyone from a knowledge of who
Jesus is and this person does his best to love God and his fellow
men, God receives him.
Coulter’s remarks seem pretty tame. But for ADL director,
Abe Foxman, anti-Semites are now lurking behind every bush; Christians
like Coulter confirm that Christianity pulsates with anti-Semitism
- a desire, not to incinerate Jews in ovens, but to kill their precious
Jewish souls through conversion. Many orthodox Jews, such as Foxman,
consider such proselytizing “genocide” of the Jewish
people through assimilation- a virtual “hate crime.”
For generations, evangelical Christians have coddled the Zionists,
confident that an effusion of love and support of Israel would overwhelm
all resentment or suspicion from Jews. Now, in many public statements,
the most belligerent pit bull of Judaism, Abe Foxman, is lashing
out, biting the hands of the evangelicals who have fed him.
It is vital that Christians not be intimidated by ADL rhetoric.
Our eternal souls are on the line if, to please Jewish activists,
we stop teaching what Foxman describes as “anti-semitic” passages
from Scripture - or using Christ’s name in public prayer. (See, ADL's
Foxman: New Testament is Anti-Semitic)
Instead, Christian defenders should arise, as they did in the early
church and Reformation, backing ADL and Foxman down through Biblical
good sense. Foxman should be chased back into his hate crimes kennel!
