The WORLD COUNCIL of CHURCHES
has managed to do it again.
Once again, it has moved another step away from its (supposed) foundation upon The ROCK+ of JESUS CHRIST . . . The ROCK+ with JEWISH ROOTS.
This time, the “peace” loving WCC has managed to spit in the Apple of GOD’S EYE. In its recent denouncements of Israel, the WCC confusedly cannot seem to sort out right from wrong, fact from opinion.
And unfortunately for them, opinion and wrong is swaying the day, which also just happens to be POLITICALLY CORRECT … and in accord with the UN Agenda !
Their recent out-rage against Israel is about the metal detectors established on the Temple Mount where the al aQsa mosque stands.
“Denying access to holy sites for thousands of people who have traveled far to pray is not only a violation of the rights of those individuals, but also a corrosive act in the midst of an already-fragile peace,” Fr. Sauca of the WCC, said.
See the rest of his confused statement at this link:
DENYING ACCESS TO A HOLY SITE by the devout who simply want to pray ?
DENYING the ENTRANCE OF guns and knives into a “world religious” site ?
Which is it, now, WCC ?
How is it these highly-educated, highly-degreed “church” spokesmen cannot tell the truth ?
Going through metal detectors TO CHECK FOR WEAPONS is not “denying thousands of people who want to pray” entrance to their holy site.
It IS a GOOD WAY, however, to DENY potential killers from bring their weapons to their “holy” site, as both the Vatican and the Saudi’s have done at their respective holy sites.
[ We ALL RECALL the recent shooting-in-the-back of the two officers by muslim men who had a stash of weapons in their “holy, religious” site — not exactly in line with the “peace” philosophy of the WCC. ]
Strange, isn’t it, how silent WCC’S press room was about the cowardly murders of the security police who protected the “religious” site for the safety of ALL worshippers.
Was its SILENCE because the even-handed security police happened to be Israeli’s … and not muslims ?
How LOUDLY its silence spoke!
As a matter of fact — and great shame — the entire GLOBAL COMMUNITY was VERY silent and dropped not a word condemning the attack on the Israeli security force protecting the “religious” site on the Temple Mount. The UN’s statement was NOTORIOUSLY missing !
REAMS of statements from the WCC accuse Israel of discrimination; yet, when a non-discriminatory policy is set in motion FOR THE SAFETY OF ALL,
the WCC cannot even see it.
Its “opinion” is promoted as “fact.”
Thus, the REAL ISSUE is NOT the security measures Israel was forced to establish for the non-discriminatory safety of ALL — Christians, Jews, and muslims.
No, the REAL ISSUE is that the muslims alone will not submit themselves to these practical , NON-DISCRIMINATING MEASURES enacted for their safety as well as for all others.
So, what business is it of the WCC to even voice an opinion and call for “world-wide prayer” for that so-named “unfair situation” ? Why is it doing this in a world-wide announcement across the internet ?
Here is why:
The World Council of “Churches” supports BDS.
The WCC sent its representative ( Dr. Phiri ) from South Africa to “Palestine” in December 2016. She was refused permission to enter Israel at Ben Gurion Airport because of her involvement in South Africa’s palestinian BDS program — Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions — against “the aggressor” Israel.
( Sigh. Yet another PhD-er who does not know the historical, elementary-school facts about the formation of the modern state of Israel.)
Israel considered her an enemy of the state.
“Boycotters should operate outside the borders of Israel,” according to Gilad Erdan, Israel’s public security minister. ( BDS South Africa news release December 7, 2016).
BDS = Palestinian Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions a “peaceful” movement against Israel, promoted by the Palestinian “church.”
The WCC claims it does not officially participate in boycotts. Strange enough, though, that it supports and funds THOSE WHO DO !
The WCC includes 12 member church organizations in the Middle East … all of which support anti-Israel programs.
The WCC is a central promoter of the Kairos Palestine document, which characterizes terrorist acts of “armed resistance” as “Palestinian legal resistance” , denies the Jewish historical connection to Israel in theological terms, calls to mobilize churches worldwide in the call for BDS, and compares Israel with the South African apartheid regime.
See this interesting link under the section called “Structure” for a factual , detailed list of the WCC’s political involvement in the Middle East.
Instead of evangelizing lost souls for The LORD JESUS CHRIST — Jews and muslims alike — the World Council of “Churches” involves itself in promoting hostility towards Israel ! See this link:
No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life;
that he may please HIM+ Who+ hath chosen him to be a soldier.

The worldly World Council of “Churches” was formed in 1948 as an effort to bring churches together to LIFT UP JESUS CHRIST to heal the world from the ravages of World War II.
Since that time, however, The LORD JESUS CHRIST has been strangely SILENT and not to be found in their midst. They are a strange group of bed-fellows: Anglicans, Lutherans, Baptists, Methodists, and Orthodox churches, as well as a small Mennonite conference in Germany and other such groups worldwide, are among their 348 members.
Other than perhaps this sole Mennonite group, there is not one church conference on the WCC membership roll who could remotely be considered “non-resistant” as The LORD JESUS CHRIST teaches.
So… what KIND of “peace” is the WCC trying to bring about ?
Not surprisingly, all is not peaceful among this “peace-loving” conglomeration. Some are pulling away from their liberal stands on the LBGTQ agenda.
The WCC would do better to work on evangelizing lost souls for The LORD JESUS CHRIST,
rather than entangling themselves in the political arena in the Middle East.
That is the ONLY COMMISSION the church has.
Indeed, they are making it much harder for TRUE CHRISTIANS to bring the Life-Giving message of Salvation through JESUS CHRIST to the rough society of the Middle East today.
Instead of focusing on promoting the wicked and worldly UN agenda, the WCC would be WISE to ABSTAIN from bashing Israel.
Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon.
For thus saith the LORD of hosts;
After the glory hath HE sent ME+ unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of HIS eye.
