Stephen Sizer and Christian Zionism

Seventeen years ago Stephen Sizer's book was discussed in this forum
Rev. Dr. Stephen Sizer, a cleric in the Church of England, has written extensively on Zionism. Rev. Sizer has made it clear that the vast majority of Zionists are not Jewish at all, but are dispensationalist Christians. He has been a defender of covenant theology in the Church of England and a critic of Christian Zionism. For standing for the truth the Rev. Dr. Stephen Sizer now faces a disciplinary tribunal in the Diocese of Winchester, arising from a complaint made by the Board of Deputies of British Jews.

Good grief. I was just talking the other day with a friend who is a dispensationalist and telling him the dangers of zionism. It's very sad to see people trapped in that system. You can point at all the areas in scripture that talk about "one people of God" and somehow they still come away that there are two and you are wrong.

Here in Latin-America dispensationalism is extremely popular since most Churches are either Papist (The majority) or American-exported Pentecostal, non-denominational, etc. and are very aggressively dispensationalist. I have tried having this conversation with some friends who are very dispensational ("If you don't support Israel God will curse you" kind of people) but they simply won't listen. I've had a few people even say that Galatians 3 is wrong when it says the promises spoken into Abraham were spoken into his seed (not seeds) and that the seed is Christ, so if we are Christ's we are also Abraham's and heirs according to the promise. It's honestly discouraging to see so many people blindly following this kind of doctrine. I personally don't even have that much of a problem with people who are politically pro-Israel (Despite being 3rd generation Palestinian diaspora myself), but it angers me when they try to say that if you don't support Israel you're not a Christian or you're some sort of heretic.

So the bottom line is the preservation of a far-left socialist state? Rename the movement Neo-Zio-Marx-ism and make sure you get your shot! Long Live Pfizerael.

I feel for the people but the state is just like any other corrupt state.
