Did Pope John Paul fully apologize for the Papal Church�s role in the Holocaust and long centuries of Jewish persecution? There were mixed reactions.
Actually I made my apologies years ago. That is why so many Jewish leaders are supportive of my work. Appalled by the history of the Christian Churches, Catholic and Protestant, and their relationship to the Jewish people, I wanted to do more than apologize � I wanted to do something positive. I am now devoting much of my time and energy to countering anti-Semitism, missionaries and deepening Jewish roots around the world.
In the 4th Century, the Church made a wrong turn. Christianity was never meant to be a world religion. The consequences have been most unfortunate. To become acceptable in a polytheistic society, the church compromised and developed the �Trinity dogma� (three God�s in One) and became the religion of the Roman Empire. The �Dark Ages� and the inquisition followed. This history of the Holy Roman Empire was written in blood�much of it Jewish blood. Of course, the Trinity became the basis of the hateful accusation of �God killer.�
The 20th Century witnessed the Holocaust and now decades later, anti-Semitism is still very much alive. To combat anti-Semitism and Holocaust revisionism, my associates and I have waged a campaign in the secular press and college newspapers�placing editorial ads and op-ed articles. As much as I am grieved by the forced assimilation of the past, Christian missionaries targeting the Jewish people disturb me. There are over 400 messianic synagogues in the United States. Over a half million Jews have converted to various Christian groups.
The most significant contribution we have made in the Christian world on behalf of the Jewish people is promoting the Dual Covenant concept. If Christians can be convinced that God is still in covenant relation with the Jewish people there is no need for missionaries targeting Jews. In the last decade two major Protestant denominations embraced the Dual Covenant concept.
Additionally, assimilation and missionaries must be countered by deepening Jewish roots. Evangelicals are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars in the United States, Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Republics, South America and Israel to target Jewish people for conversion. Various language versions of my video, ISRAEL: APPOINTMENT WITH DESTINY are being shown in Jewish schools, community centers, camps and distributed by Jewish leaders to their Jewish community to deepen Jewish roots.
