Let’s look at the facebook group ‘Christians Against Zionism’, a pro-Stephen Sizer facebook group which urges Christians to oppose Christian Zionism, which the group considers as ‘heresy’.
The group tells you:
“If you join this group you might be accused by some as being “Anti-Semitic.”
However, just because Bible Christians oppose Christian Zionism does not mean that they are anti-Jewish or anti-Semitic as some people wrongly think.”
So is this a group of progressive, 21st century Christians who are modern day anti-Zionists?
Here are some photos from the group:
These photos, and the accompanying comments, suggest that the Star of David is somehow Satanic (indeed it is ‘666’ due its 6 points, 6 inner triangles and 6 outer triangles), and further suggest a Judeo-Masonic world conspiracy which is being supported by Christian Zionists. To make their point, these Christian “anti-Zionists” are quite happy to quote from the Book of Revelation out-of-context: a tactic which they continuously accuse the Christian Zionists of using.
Meanwhile, the group’s founder Alexander Gillan posted this link to an article explaining the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
To many people this is all too reminiscent of medieval-style religious bigotry, and suggests a theological hatred which goes hand in hand with replacement theology.
Before they try to solve the Middle East, perhaps these Christian “anti-Zionists” have some soul-searching of their own to do?
