The church fathers did not teach what "FOREVER" meant to GOD, concerning Israel.
THE-O-REM: a general proposition not self-evident but proved by a chain of reasoning; a truth established by means of accepted truths.
Moen Ministries. With his help we will be producing three videos specifically designed for my YOU TUBE Channel. I will be focusing on developing the channel with a more quality presentation in the coming weeks.
With regard to the first project, yet to be named, I will be revisiting the early church fathers from the time of John Chrysostom (349 to 407 AD) Ignatius Theophorus (35 to 108 AD) as well as a look at Emperor Constantine. My focus will be on their visceral hatred of anything Jewish and the effect that their teaching has had throughout the last nineteen centuries.
Many of the early church fathers, through various teachings are responsible for creating a sort of asceticism against anything Jewish. Replacement Theology, Systematic Theology and Antisemitism are all contrived consequences. In other words, theological division as far as "Churchology" goes, is born! The Hebraic reality of the biblical text, replaced with thought provoking commentary less the very Near Eastern, Jewish context. Simply put, what God was doing through Israel no longer foundation due to his shift towards the gentile church for the sake of the Gospels. From this new narrative, based on what men decided to be true and correct (having disconnected from what God was doing, is still doing through Israel) church denominations are born, replicated, and ostensibly detached from the Jewish writers of scripture. Therein lies the deception. The scriptures are our source of connection to God, less the cultural integrity from whence they came?
Side effect as opposed to biblical truth
In any given neighborhood several churches dot the landscape. On corner A there is a Baptist congregation. On corner B, an Assemblies of God, a Catholic compound a few blocks away and a small Lutheran congregation rounding out the neighborhood. On Sundays the parking lots are full but, none of these people know their neighbors, congregate together or entertain relationship as believers in one GOD. None of these congregates have seen the inside of a Jewish Synagogue, let alone know what is taught there!
The commentaries based on the extrapolation from New Testament theory specific to the Apostle Paul, now a convert to Christianity begins revisionist duplication of the biblical text supportive of church progression less Hebrew decorum. The slaughtering of Jews around the world also begins.
With churches bursting at the seams celebratory of doctrines that glorify God's discontent with the Jews and his willful desire to "Kill them all" because they "Killed Christ" abound! This is what many of the church fathers inspired which resulted in separation. Sadly, the Church is still dividing!
The effect of the church fathers centuries later:
Yesterday I was speaking with a Christian business associate. I shared with him something he had never seen before. For the sake of "Restoration" he was amazed! I simply showed to him a little "Hebrew Decorum" if you will. He asked, "Can I keep this?"
During our discussion he said, and I quote, "The Jews believe in works in order to get to heaven and we know that's not true!" I said to him, "Their is not a Jewish person for the last 2000 years who believes what you just said" This is what you have been taught. I just showed you something that you have never seen before because this is what you have never been taught in your church.....and so it goes! The church fathers orchestrated separation between Jew and Gentile.
