Sometimes an infestation of parasitesis so thorough and overwhelming that the host doesn't even get to keep itsoriginal name in part. One of today's episode. We explore the recent creationand destructive history of the Word Judaeo Christian, I'm Daren Kalama, andthis is the first Bible network. The latest news, history and analysis fromthe perspective of the first Christians tune into the FBOM twenty four sevenradio stream. Given how many famous people,institutions, presidents, religious leaders, social icons and celebritieshave invoked the name, Judaeo Christian you'd think it's been Aron forthousands of years Millennia, at least since the time of Jesus it has suchweight bearing power and Gravitas. Such a rapturous name, surely, must be thecorner stone of a great and historic spiritual awakening yeah, no, notreally in terms of religious significance, it's somewhere in thesame zip code with Quanz A and not much older than that. The etymology of theword and its earliest known us was in the nineteenth century, where it firstappears in a letter from Alexander Mc call, don't worry, nobody else knowswho he is either. The term in this case referred to alleged Jewish converts toChristianity or Converse Os. Also around this time. The Word Ju Deyo wasbeing slapped around on just about everything names like Judeo, GermanJudea, Italian Judeo, French were commonly used to describe variousthings related to Jews. It was part of a growing movement to make Jews appearto be less alien to mainstream them into society, and language was one wayto do that and such became the case...

...also with the name Judaeo Christian.Now, it's interesting to note that the same people selling this new name arealso big on talking about the or what they call the Abrahamic faith in whichIslam is also a part of. Yet the word isn't: Judeo Christian, Islamic orChristian Judeo Islamic and it's especially not Islamic Christian Jude.The name says: Hey we're part of a team and you other people, you Islams orHindus. You might be okay, but we are running the God show around here. Yousee the Jews like having their name. First, you know top billing. Despitebeing such a tiny insignificant fragment of the world's totalpopulation, one is reminded of the midget perched on top of a giant in theMad Max Thunder Dome Movie. So the name excludes other religions, while at thesame time allowing Jews to dominate the headline in a story. That's reallyabout parasites and hosts. Some people were also using it to describe a typeof Christianity that rejected the teachings and writings of the ApostlePaul. They liked the word Judeo Christian, because in their mind ithelped blend Judaism and Christianity together, while at the same timesignaling their opposition to Paul who they felt was unfriendly to the Jews.Now, a few years after Mac call's letter, a strange historical figure gota hold of the word. His name was Joseph Wolf and in eighteen, twenty nine hebegan marketing the word as a tool for Messianic Jews and Adventus to usethese churches would maintain many Jewish and Ibyat traditions, whileagain excluding many of Paul's epistles,...

...essentially a lot more in Yashua and alot less Jesus. Now, like the Ebionites and other judies before them, they liedheavily on the Gospel of Matthew, with its opening paragraphs that read like aguest list from a Barmitzvah now for an example of what I'm talking about lookat any of the Evangelical Preachers of to day wearing their Hebrew prayershawls, as they endlessly talk about Yoshu and Yawa, while barely evermentioning the name Jesus Christ on their made for T V, masses, John HageFranklin, Graham Fall Wall. These guys are the vision that Joseph Wolfe wastrying to achieve back in eighteen, twenty nine, but let's not get too farahead of ourselves, because Wolf turns out to be actually pretty interesting.In fact, you might agree that he's the personification of the poster boy forthe marketing slogan, Judaeo Christian and all that it represents nownaturally kicking over the wood, pile and clicking on early life sets thetone for our little journey. Here. Wolf was born to Jewish parents. His FatherDavid was a rabbi in Germany. According to his bio, he developed a greatinterest in Jesus Christ. This was as a child and at age eleven he left homeand he spent the next six years, traveling Europe in meeting withteachers and theologians to learn more now. His bio goes on to claim heedbecame a Roman Catholic in eighteen, twelve, and he took on the name Josephwhatever his original, given Jewish name was, is not mentioned now. By theway, I'm going to include some slow role, video of his BIOS, you can kindof follow along and make your own decisions. Four years later, he movedto Rome and began studying to the...

...missionary at the Jesuit run: CalligoRomano. He was there for a couple of years before being physically expelledby the gendarmes for disrupting the school and questioning the doctrine ofinfallibility. He left Italy and decided to become a member of theChurch of England. After meeting a couple O prominent adventists who tookhim in from there, he went on to train as a missionary at Cambridge Universityat the expense of the London Society, for promoting Christianity amongst theJews. That was the name of it. Now, since renamed, its main goal wasencouraging the Hebrew Christian S, Messianic, Jewish movement and theirmain goal was injecting in mixing Judaism into Christianity. Wolf alsoembraced the millerite adventist belief, which was popular at the time that therole was ending in eighteen. Forty, four long stories short: He thendecided his life's goal was finding out what happened to the lost tribes ofIsrael and he traveled around Africa preaching that the world would beending in eighteen, forty four, he wrote a book about his travels marriedinto a prominent family in England and managed to mainstream that name, JudeoChristian in a few of the right circles of Messianic Jews on both sides of theAtlantic. Now the T, l, D, r version of all this is man shape, shifts fromJudaism to Catholicism, to the Church of England, changes his name and spendshis entire life. Subverting Christianity is a Messianic Jew, allthe while screaming about the world coming to an end based on Danielprophecies in the Hebrew Bible. What you know to day is the Old Testament.This, my friends, is the epitome of the name. Judeo Christian and Wolf is itsshape. Shifting poster boy now,...

...unfortunately, because of his writingscontacts and travels, the name Judaeo Christian didn't die with him ineighteen, sixty two, it rested. It lay under the wood pile hibernating forabout a hundred years until a new use for it was found. In short, what wasabout to happen was that the Mesciana Jews were going to shape shift into anew form a new skin. This new word would allow them to moveamong the Christians without sticking out like a sore thumb. Now, let's do athought. Experiment, someone walks up to you and announces hey hi, I'm aMessianic Jew! Think about what your reaction to that is. Now another personwalks up and says our share. Judeo Christian beliefs see how that works,how much more smoother and less Ajai that is the toxic theological poison,is just as fatal, but now it has a sweet flavor in the label on the vialhas pretty colors on it fast forward to the late nineteen is ned is in America,although some subversive ideas and elements like the Scofield Bible andMarxism had chipped away. A little at the armor of Christianity was stillvery much a Christian country. Jews had their religion and Christians hadtheirs, everybody knew where they stood and the Christians, specifically, theCatholics were enjoying a golden age of power and influence in the sense that,from a moral perspective, the ship called America was sailing, upright andvery stable, but war was brewing on the horizon in Europe, and Americans werevery much against getting involved in yet another European war and the manwho was their voice. Their champion was a priest named father, Charles Coplin,and he wasn't just any voice every week.

Thirty million Americans would hang onhis every word listening to his radio programs. These were numbers that wouldmake rush limb. All look like a disc Jackie at a community college radiostation in Rural Indiana, I mean couplin packed in huge stadiums fromend to end, my dear friend, among other things, in a national Uminfor social justice. We are Riatas, we believe in Tricenaleyour neighbor as yourself with no. I I in this Naturell me that he does notbecomingly mind under a new kind of God made of and and I when men become right, but they believe that destinyyou to real life. We Poo God, I, the Foal Riglett a o, the past everybody listen to father coffin andfather coffin was one hundred percent...

...dead set against the war and he hatedMarkus. Frankly, everybody did people had learned that they had murderedmillions and millions of Christian Russians while they operated under thebanner or the mask of Bolshevism. These were not popular people. Jews, however,were very much in favor of getting involved in the war and stopping anewly powerful Germany. You see their friends on the other side of theAtlantic were sounding the alarm bells begging for help and they were leavingGermany and mass anybody with Marxist ideas and leanings were not welcome inGermany, and that meant Jewish institutions with Marx's leanings, likethe Frankfort School, were told to hit the road and they did packing theirbags and landing in the friendly confines of New York City, where theyset up shop at Columbia, university in one thousand, nine hundred and thirtyfive. As a result, now all the big brains of Judaism and Marxism were alltogether and together they took a fresh look. It would appear to be aninsurmountable problem, simply put they needed a way to turn the ship aroundand America was a very, very large ship. They began trying to sway popularopinion through media and books, but how do you bridge the divergentinterests in beliefs of Catholics and Jews and then add the complicatingfactor of another world war on top of it widening the gap? Further. This wasa very tricky problem. Indeed, to say nothing of Father Koflan and his thirtymillion anti war listeners did. I mention that even the world renownedindustrialist Henry Ford was against them and Charles Lindburg and just likeJoseph Wolfe a hundred years ago, these marxes needed to do some shape,shifting of their own instead of being...

...enemies with the Christians andCatholics in America. They needed them now, as friends, friends to fightagainst their larger, more formidable enemy in the form of a new resurgentGermany. Wait. Do you hear that that rustlingsound near the wood pile something is emerging? Ah, it's our old friend you DaoChristian. What's he doing here, that's right. Judeo Christian was bornagain and began to be used to signify something called the common religiousinheritance of the West by left wing authors in the N S, and when I say used,I mean they plastered it everywhere. They were determined to create thatJudaeo Christian connection. In the collective mind of America, Americamust be taught to associate Judaeo Christian with Anti Fascism. They hadto associate anything good with that new name. Of course, any one opposed toJudeo Christian was a Nazi lover and enemy of America itself is how thenarrative was framed and propagandized, and that name was their best way to doit, but to call it a manufactured implied. Tautology is a massiveunderstatement. The name actually doesn't make any logical sense at all,but when there's a goal, facts don't matter and their goal was gettingAmerica into the war. Long Story Short Congressmen created and changed lawsthat drove father, Koflan off the air and then the Japanese Bom Pearl Harbor.That was the end of the Anti War opposition and, as you can imagine,there was much celebration and dancing at the Frankfort School in New YorkCity that day as the ships in Pearl,...

...harbor, smouldered and burned, Americawas finally in their war and lots and lots of Christians were going to die.Now before we sign off. I think it's important to point out that the prenicing Christians, like the Marcene, don't really have a dog in this fightand, of course it is the Marcine church that underwrites the first Biblenetwork and the show their faith is based on the very first Christian Bibleof one forty four a D, and that Bible did not and to this day does notcontain the Old Testament. Their belief is that Jews, worship a deity that isalien to Christianity, and that God was only revealed through Jesus that toknow God one must know and accept Jesus. There is no other way. No. Beyond thedeceptive marketing and slick propaganda of the Judaeo Christiansales force, there are very real consequences at play here. Would youlike a Judaeo Christian priest to give you last rights? I mean, what's next,finding a cute way to combine the words priest and Rabbi. Moreover, the presentday, Marcine Church, believes that Messianic Jews and names like JudaeoChristian, are simply movements and constructs designed with the solepurpose of subverting confusing Toxifera d, destroying trueChristianity. It's a goal that they've been working to achieve since the dayof Christ's resurrection, but don't take my word for it. Let history beyour guide now we are reminded that the apostles had a brief success inshutting down the Judi isers at the Council of Jerusalem and Forty Eight, aD, but it was short, lived. Interestingly, you'll find yousunwittingly in total agreement with the Marcionites, as we read in JacobNewsese Book, Jews and Christians, the myth of a common tradition in which hewrites the two faiths stand for...

...different people, talking aboutdifferent things to different people, but I think it's best summed up byrabbi: Eliza Berg Ovitz, who writes that Judaism is Judaism because itrejects Christianity and Christianity is Christianity because it rejectsJudaism and we couldn't agree more now because of today's prolonged foray intounpleasant subject matter. I thought it would be a good idea to close outtoday's show with a short prayer, a cleansing prayer. If you will it's, the original Lord's prayer isfound in the first Bible of one undred, an forty four, a D and you'll find iton page twenty. Eight of the paper bag or hard cover version, and it's also onpage three hundred forty six. If you're, following with the Kendal e Book Father,let Your Holy Spirit come upon us Hallo, be your name! Your kingdom come yourwill be done as in heaven, so on Earth Give us day by day our bread for thecoming day and forgive us our sins, for we also forgive every one that isindebted to us and lead us not into temptation a man in the upcomingsegment. In part, too, we're going to explore how this name Judeo Christian,became a power house in shaping events from e Es until to day and how itcreated a new breed of evangelical TV, preacher and politicians and ultimatelyled to the destruction of Western Christianity, the evidence of which isall around you. I'm Daran Colama, and this is the First Bible Network.
