The Error of Replacement Theology

04 Feb

Replacement Theology is a doctrinal teaching that originated in the early Church. It became the fertile soil from which Christian anti-Semitism grew and has infected the Church for nearly 1,900 years. – Clarence H. Wagner, Jr.

And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree (Romans 11:17)

What is Replacement Theology?

Did God break His covenant with the Jews?

Replacement Theology was introduced to the Church shortly after Gentile leadership took over from Jewish leadership. What are its premises?

1) Israel (the Jewish people and the land) has been replaced by the Christian Church in the purposes of God, or, more precisely, the Church is the historic continuation of Israel to the exclusion of the former.

2) The Jewish people are now no longer a “chosen people.” In fact, they are no different from any other group, such as the English, Spanish, or Africans.

3) Apart from repentance, the new birth, and incorporation into the Church, the Jewish people have no future, no hope, and no calling in the plan of God. The same is true for every other nation and group.

4) Since Pentecost of Acts 2, the term “Israel,” as found in the Bible, now refers to the Church.

5) The promises, covenants and blessings ascribed to Israel in the Bible have been taken away from the Jews and given to the Church, which has superseded them. However, the Jews are subject to the curses found in the Bible, as a result of their rejection of Christ.

Prayer Power
Father, I praise You as the God of light and truth. Shine Your light on the lies of replacement theology to expose Your truth that Israel is and has been Your chosen nation. Convict the hearts of Your people in America about the subtle, but very serious, sin of Anti-Semitism. Open the eyes of understanding of many pastors to know that replacement theology is wrong. Then give them a new boldness to preach Your Word in truth. May they fear You and not man. Begin right here in Culpeper and Virginia. Thank You Jesus. Amen.

There is tremendous power in a testimony. “And they overcame him (the devil) by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.” – Revelations 12:11
