Why Academics are Misleading - Zionism is a Reality

Reader comment on item: Khaled Abou El Fadl on Judeo-Christian Values

It never ceases to amaze how the continuing challenges to Christianity take on old arguments that have been shown to be ineffective in denying the truth upon which true Christianity is based. There are no humanly or religiously rationalized belief systems, no matter if secular or formed upon the most intellectually articulated observances of any particular religious affirmation, which can replace a basic truth of this worldly existence-truly observed Christianity was started by Christianity's author; Jesus Christ. Evidence of this truth, if truthfully recognized for the truth it represents, contains its own statement that exceeds the understanding of mere mortal argument for or against its reality.
This was most poignantly articulated in the confrontation between the religious authorities of ancient Israel, the individual they contentiously rejected the truth of His Word, and the representative of the world order of the time, the Roman Procurator Pontius Pilate: Pilate could not answer the question, what is Truth. It is a reality that cannot be articulated in these modern times as well.
Any religious contemplations of this modern age, including those what claim some Christian connection without the truth of it, which attempt to characterize some modern understanding Christianity not validated by the verification of specific Biblical spiritual affirmation, are to be characterized as replacement theology. That is what is being articulated here.
The truth is, modern practices of Christianity that do not operate in obedience to the truth of the Gospel are in terminal mode, so much so that arbiters of modern religious observances (Christianesque, Islamic, or otherwise), like that found in schools of questionable scholarship, can weave any veil of deception and are believed until they come against the truth and are found out to be practitioners of that deception. According to the Scriptures, they are evidences that the truth of the times is to be revealed; that the closing scenes of the age are upon the world and there is no time left except to seek the truth.
What we are seeing today in the pandemic of lost realities of truth is evidence that once truth is not held all that valuable in this world of replacement values, what is left will not be worth holding on to.
That being said, academicians such as this particular posted anti-Christian still find it necessary to hold to an untenable position that seeks to delegitimize Israel and blame some misunderstood ideology that Judeo-Christian Zionist support for Israel is wrong for so many disproved reasons, they cannot be catalogued here for the lack of space.
More importantly, the entire rationale for such antipathies and outright enmity for the Jewish state is under duress, for literally no one can understand the absolute rage from so many sectors of the Middle East, and even in Europe, for the cause of annexation. Yet the arguments of this Islamist academician are potentially being resurrected and amplified to repudiate the annexation scenario. All of this can be explained, however, in the same terms that stupefied the world when the Samaria-Judea region was brought again under Israeli national control. Very few, if any, were watching the prophetic calendar.
Had anyone taken the time, this should be no surprise. But even those who are aware of the timing, they are still looking for the key - but who is ready? Certainly not academicians who are convince Zionism has no fulfillments of any import - but only if one can forget the actual existence of Israel.
