Why Are Christians for Zion Perverting The Bible?

Recently I looked at how the CfZ website claimed that Churches are teaching Grace instead of law and that they, the Church, are saying that it’s ok if you sin. Now I’m going to expose a recurring perversion that is taught on their CfZ website.

 

On a number of occasions they have used Matthew Ch 25 Vs 31-46 to claim that anyone who does not support Israel will be condemned.

 

“Christianity which has as its corner stone a Jew who will Judge anyone who throughout history fails to support Israel.”

“Please join with Christians for Zion in our efforts to be an answer to Yeshua’s Prophecy concerning the Jewish people;”

“In Mathew 25 v 31 to 46 we read that Yeshua described a future event at which there will be a Judgement of those Nations who have persecuted Israel or simply acted with apathy or lack of concern when Israel and the Jews were being persecuted and oppressed. This Prophecy from Yeshua is in line with the words of the Prophets Zechariah Chapters 1 & 2, Joel Chapter 3 v 2, Isaiah 63 and others.

 

In the Prophecy in Mathew 25 Yeshua spoke very clearly about a group who He referred to as the Righteous who fed Him and gave Him something to drink, visited Him and invited Him a stranger into their homes. This group asked when did we do this and Yeshua said when you did all these things for my brothers meaning Israel -the Jews. He then praised this group. Then He spoke to a group who did none of these things and He said to them depart from Me and He cursed them.”

Now let’s look at the chapter and verse which they use and abuse.

 

31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his throne in heavenly glory. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. 34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ 37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40 “The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine,(The Jewish people) you did for me.’ 41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’ 44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’ 45 “He will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’ 46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.” Matt 25:31-46

Now let’s get some context into who Jesus called his brothers.

 

“31 Then Jesus’ mother and brothers arrived. Standing outside, they sent someone in to call him. 32 A crowd was sitting around him, and they told him, “Your mother and brothers are outside looking for you.”

 

33 “Who are my mother and my brothers?” he asked.

 

34 Then he looked at those seated in a circle around him and said, “Here are my mother and my brothers! 35 Whoever does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother.”

 

Mark Ch 3 Vs 31-35

 

“46 While Jesus was still talking to the crowd, his mother and brothers stood outside, wanting to speak to him. 47 Someone told him, “Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to speak to you.”

 

48 He replied to him, “Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?” 49 Pointing to his disciples, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers. 50 For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.”

 

Matthew Ch 12 Vs 46-50

 

If you note from the passage above Jesus distinctly points to his Disciples and only his Disciples even though he is talking to a crowd consisting mainly if not exclusively of Jews.

 

 

Basically what is being taught here by Mike Fryer is that if you speak out against Israeli injustices towards Palestinians you are going to hell. Why do they teach this? Well it’s simple, it is sheer propaganda to seduce and frighten the weak and gullible into lying to cover up Israeli injustice.

 

This group is clearly a danger towards people who are easily seduced by the Heresies being taught. Let us pray that their deeds become more and more exposed.

 

On a brighter and cheerier note. If you are a genuine Christian who is doing the will of God then Jesus regards you as his Brother, Sister or Mother….How awesome is that!?!

    Trevor’s interpretation is incorrect, which is no surprise. Once more he maligns someone with a false view of what is being said. What Mike is teaching is that nations will have to answer for the way in which they treat or treated Israel. Remember Jesus spoke about Jerusalem being trampled down by Gentiles. God hates injustice period. People will not go to Hell if they speak out about Israeli injustices towards Palestine. I don’t suppose Trevor will apologise for this untruth.

    Trevor Barclay: “Recently I looked at how the CfZ website claimed that Churches are teaching Grace instead of law and that they, the Church, are saying that it’s ok if you sin. Now I’m going to expose a recurring perversion that is taught on their CfZ website.”
    Once again Mr Barclay shockingly misinterprets what the Christians for Zion website teaches on law and grace. This is despite my previous comment correcting this gross error.
    Mike Fryer, the Christians for Zion founder, teaches that no-one can achieve salvation by good works or by attempting to keep Old Testament laws. Our salvation comes through the shedding of blood when Jesus became our atonement for sin by dying on the cross at Calvary.
    What Mike is saying is that some churches, for instance, support same-sex marriages. This is contrary to what the Bible teaches and is a sin.

  3. “Trevor’s interpretation is incorrect, which is no surprise.”

    Well go ahead and state your case as to why Mr Fryer’s interpretation of Matthew 25:31-46 is correct.?

    You can’t though because you KNOW it’s a lie.

  4. Christopher Proudlove

    Mike’s interpretation is clearly expressed. There is no need for me to amplify it. Once again you use the word ‘lie’ when you do not agree with the thoughts expressed. Anything Trevor Barclay does no agree with is a ‘lie.!’

  5. It’s a lie. You know it, i know it, Fryer knows it and anyone reading this knows it.

  6. Christopher Proudlove

    As I commented last week, I had been away from home for five days. I intended to further reply to your earlier mistaken comments about Christians for Zion. I note that several of my comments on this matter have been deleted from this website. Why has this happened. Could it be that Trevor Barclay has been proved wrong and has made the cuts to save face?

  7. Christopher Proudlove

    If you were writing from a Hebraic root perspective and not from a left-wing and Greek philosophy mindset, Trevor, you would see that Mike’s comments are not a lie. Once more, you are refusing to face up to the truth.

  8. None of your recent comments have been deleted.

    Nice try at trying to save face…..You dishonest man.

  9. Christopher Proudlove

    Trevor: None of your recent comments have been deleted.
    How is it I can’t find them?
    Another lie. Your say I’m trying to save face. NO, No. NO. I’d like to see your red face, though, Trevor.

  10. Christopher Proudlove

    I have found them. Why didn’t you tell me to look for ‘older posts’ at the bottom of this website. Please make this more visible as it is now easy to miss.

  11. What was the title of the blog in which you are claiming your comments were deleted?

  12. Christopher Proudlove

    The real question should be: “Why are Christians for Zion Watch perverting the Bible?”
    Why don’t Christians for Zion Watch apologise for their egregious comments which are proved to be incorrect?

  13. “The real question should be: “Why are Christians for Zion Watch perverting the Bible?”
    Why don’t Christians for Zion Watch apologise for their egregious comments which are proved to be incorrect?”

    State your case then. Balls in your court, either put up or shut up?

  14. “If you were writing from a Hebraic root perspective and not from a left-wing and Greek philosophy mindset, Trevor, you would see that Mike’s comments are not a lie. Once more, you are refusing to face up to the truth.”

    Please explain to the visitors of this site which Bibles are “from a left-wing and Greek philosophy mindset”?

    As it turns out, unbeknown to you, i have a ‘complete Jewish Bible’ translated from Hebrew by a ‘David.H Stern’ and it is in line with the NIV text i have used here.

    Again, ball’s in your court.

  15. Christopher Proudlove

    James Jacob Prasch, head of Moriel Ministries, Messianic Jew, a fluent Hebrew speaker and an academic, says Stern’s translation is not accurate enough. There is a new Hebrew root Bible, the One Man Bible, which is recommended on Steve Maltz’s Foundations 4 website contribution.
    Dr Prasch is a fan of the North American Standard Bible. There is a Key Words study edition which gives additional information on the Hebrew and Greek words used in the Scriptures. You may know that the NIV Bible is jokingly called the Nearly Inspired Version.
    Trevor Barclay owns a complete Jewish Bible. I wonder how long it will be before some of its truths sink in?
    I repeat Mike Fryer’s comments are not a lie, but what Trevor Barclay has written about him is. The way Trevor Barclay’s trashes people with a different point of view is a disgrace.

  16. Christopher Proudlove

    Correction: The above should have read the One New Man Bible.

  17. I’m still waiting on you stating your case.

  18. Christopher Proudlove

    How can you criticise Mike Fryer’s beliefs when you have not visited his church or studied his church’s fundamental beliefs, Trevor? Remember, you mocked me for not reading a Christian Zionist’s book even though I had read a précis of it and other reviews of the book.

  19. I’ve read Fryer’s blog. Note the difference..I have read his blog where as you had never read Grief’s book. Not only have you not read the book which you highly recommended i should read as i’d find all the answers, but you couldn’t even cite one piece of information to back up your now debunked version of San Remo.

    On top of that, i have offered up context from the Bible to show that you are both liars. Also, you have yet to refute this. In fact rather than refute you go on an insane ramble about ” left-wing and Greek philosophy mindset” which is rather peculiar because i’m pretty sure that the Bible you mention “the One Man Bible” the NT in it was translated from Greek.

    PUT UP OR SHUT UP!?!

  20. Still waiting on you refuting me here, Chris.

  21. I find this e-conversation extraordinarily cross! Shouldn’t believers in Yeshua love one another? Prefer one another? Not judge another man’s servant? Reading the comments and objections in christiansforzionwatch make me sad. What a critical, judgemental man! This is not being a watchman as I understand it – there is no accuracy in the statements and no warning of the brethren from true observance. The question seems to me on reading, that the writer of christiansforzionwatch does not understand the hebrew roots of his faith and that Father God tells us in Genesis 12 v 3 that He will bless those who bless Israel, but that He will curse anyone who curses Israel. A closer look at the original text reveals that there are two different words used for ‘curse‘ in this verse. In verse order the first one is ‘arar’ meaning to ‘curse’ or ‘put a curse on’ (Strong’s H779), and the second one is ‘qalal’ meaning ‘slight’ or ‘trifling’ or ‘of little
    account’ (Strong’s H7043). Mike Fryer blesses Israel as all true believers in Yeshua should. Anyone slighting Israel will be cursed.

  22. A typical Zionist response. First you judge me for being ‘judgmental’ and then you go on to judge me in a couple of other matters. You then get around to ‘answering’ on behalf of Mike Fryer….Only you don’t. In typical Zionist fashion you totally dodge the main point and instead use a part of the Bible that has nothing to do with what i posted.

    Btw, stay tuned later in the week as i expose the heresy being taught in Mike Fryer’s ‘Hidden Treasure’ course

  23. Christopher Proudlove

    In his ‘Legalism’ booklet Mike Fryer states: “God’s grace, freely given to us through the blood of His Son, saves us from the consequences of breaking God’s law — the curse of the law is death .. We are saved from death into eternal life by His grace, but without God’s law there is no need for grace. ” … for before the law was given, sin was in the world. But sin is not taken into account when there is no law.” (Romans 5:13. It is because of His love for us that He gives us His grace because without it we would face eternal death. Honouring God by keeping His laws is an act of love for not legalism. “Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me. He who loves me will be loved by my Father and I too will love him and show myself to him.” John 14:21. There we go Christiansforzionwatch Mike Fryer is teaching Bible truth not perverting it. An apology is due
