Why End Times? (61) – Chapter 6 – The Great tribulation and Israel

editor 12 October 2017

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. From the book Why End Times? Chapter 6 – The Great Tribulation and Israel

Hitler
In his impressive book ‘Kroniek van de Jodenvervolging 1940-1945’ (Chronicle of the persecution of the Jews 1940-1945, first edition already in 1950) Abel J. Herzberg sketched the deep spiritual background of what motivated Hitler and his cronies. First of all he refers with great appreciation to the book ‘Edda and Thora’ by the Christian Prof. Dr. K. H. Miskotte, which was ’a source of strength for so many Jews during all the misery of the occupation’. The book is compiled from lectures held by Miskotte in The Netherlands in 1934 and in Dutch East India in 1937, published in 1939. [Photo top right: Abel J. Herzberg](more…)

ISRAEL – SUNDAY 2017 (Dutch: ISRAËL ZONDAG 2017)

editor 27 September 2017

By Rev Willem J.J. Glashouwer.. A form of Christian theology, or perhaps one should rather say anti-Christian theology, has for centuries held the Jewish people collectively responsible for the death of Jesus. The Church has been less merciful than God. It cannot be repeated often enough that the Crusades, Inquisition, Pogroms, and Holocaust took place in the Christian world, and represent Christian anti-Semitism. Even today, the World Council of Churches issues one pro-Palestinian pronouncement after another. (more…)
