I witnessed an attempt to reframe theology during our Canadian Friends of Israel Prophecy Conference in Winnipeg, Manitoba, last year when a colleague showed me a one-page flyer titled “Questions for Christian Friends of Modern Israel.” He had found hundreds of them circulating in the auditorium during the lunch break. At the bottom, it read, “Prepared by concerned friends of Palestinian Christians.”
We both knew the flyer was a stealthy attempt to undermine our teaching and persuade those attending our conference to abandon biblical Zionism in favor of Replacement Theology, which puts the church in place of Israel. How did we know? After all, the flyer itself did not contain the word replacement. We knew the historical truth, and we examined the flyer’s contents. It’s easy to fall for a reframed theology and its euphemistic language if you don’t know the facts. . . .
After the session, several people made it a point to thank us for using the flyer to expose Replacement Theology. They now could better see the attempt to reframe the biblical view on Israel, and they were renewed in their faith. God’s promises to Israel are indelibly framed in His Word and provide a guarantee to protect, preserve, and provide for His Chosen People. Click here to read this entire article.
