The Scofield Bible—The Book That Made Zionists of America’s Evangelical Christians
By Maidhc Ó Cathail
“For a nation to commit the sin of anti-Semitism brings inevitable judgement.”
—The New Scofield Study Bible
Since it was first published in 1909, the Scofield Reference Bible has made uncompromising Zionists out of tens of millions of Americans. When John Hagee, the founder of Christians United for Israel (CUFI), said that “50 million evangelical bible-believing Christians unite with five million American Jews standing together on behalf of Israel,” it was the Scofield Bible that he was talking about.
Although the Scofield Reference Bible contains the text of the King James Authorized Version, it is not the traditional Protestant bible but Cyrus I. Scofield’s annotated commentary that is problematic. More than any other factor, it is Scofield’s notes that have induced generations of American evangelicals to believe that God demands their uncritical support for the modern State of Israel.

Most Christians that I have ever met and talked to openly confess that they are sinners. They sin every day, so they say, and they have no problem with it because they THINK that Jesus’ salvation means just saving them from the consequence of their sins.
Jesus came to set sinners FREE FROM THEIR SINS. And if you don’t believe it you have believed the old devil’s lie. You CAN stop sinning if you want to stop sinning. Jesus came to set sinners free, and if you put your trust in Him, and if you start walking with Him, if you start following Him and obeying Him He will set you free from your sins.
The problem is most Christians LOVE their sinful life MORE than they love the light of Jesus Christ.
Are you ready to follow and obey Jesus and leave your sinful shameful life behind? Or have you bought the easy false gospel that says, if you just believe upon Jesus He will save you from the consequence of your wicked sinful life.
If you continue to sin you are NOT saved from your sins. If you continue to live wickedly, you will perish in your sins.
Repent of your sins today, follow Jesus, turn from sins or perish.
Harmony of the gospels — shows consistency in all four texts written by different authors at different times in different locations — led by the Holy Spirit!
The synoptic gospels, Matthew, Mark and Luke overlap a lot, covering much of the same material, and they are in harmony. Written by different authors in different places and at different times and they agree about what was said.
And where John’s gospel overlaps, it agrees too. [John’s gospel mostly covered different discussions, but also seamlessly overlapped a number of times, covering the same material.] All four gospels in harmony confirm that we can trust we are reading what Jesus really said.
The Holy Spirit made sure this would happen, inspiring the authors, etc..
Books, often called “harmony of the gospels” show this consistency by placing the same texts from the different gospels side by side, so they can be compared.
Here is an excellent one online. See for yourself:
Mostly really good. But I’m not sure what Sean is getting at in his conclusion. I would say: God works everything for good, Romans 8:28 only applies to real Christians (whom Paul described clearly in verses 1-17):
“We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to his purpose.”
And that doesn’t at all mean that God manipulates everything for those who really do follow Him. I believe that God is mostly hands off, allowing people to freely decide what they will do. Where He does intervene a lot is in the spirit world, where angels fight demons, often in response to Christians’ prayers. And God also empowers Christians to overcome sin, as the Holy Spirit leads those who follow Him.
God will sometimes clearly intervene, but this is rare, like with Saul on the road to Damascus, making him temporarily blind, which gave Saul some quality thinking time so he repented from persecuting the Christians, and then become Paul, one of the greatest Christians ever! God really has given us free will, unlike some Calvinists who believe free will is only an illusion, because God controls everything everyone does in order to be able to predict the outcome. That is pure hogwash, but one of my seminary professors actually taught us that. Sean’s father is Josh McDowell, the famous author, Christian apologist.

We must distance ourselves from this unholy, reverse-Christian, TalmudVision driven fad. Paul’s warning in 2 Thessalonians wasn’t meant to be a blueprint:
Now, brothers, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ…. 3 Let no one deceive you in any way. For it will not be, unless the departure comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of destruction, 4 he who opposes and exalts himself against all that is called God or that is worshiped; so that he sits as God in the temple of God, setting himself up as God. 5 Don’t you remember that, when I was still with you, I told you these things? 6 Now you know what is restraining him, to the end that he may be revealed in his own season [not Christian assisted].7 For the mystery of lawlessness already works. Only there is one who restrains now, until he is taken out of the way. 8 Then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will kill with the breath of his mouth, and destroy by the manifestation of his coming; 9 even he whose coming is according to the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 and with all deception of wickedness for those who are being lost, because they didn’t receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
