Missionary and TV personality Sid Roth sees Hamas attacks as prime opportunity to bring Jews to Jesus, 2014-07-10

Popular Christian evangelist Sid Roth sees the Hamas attacks against Israel as a prime opportunity to target the “unsaved Jewish people” by bringing them to belief in jesus. Roth boasts of converting Jewish souls in Israel and of “Broadcasting 28 times a week in the nation of Israel. The airwaves are saturated with our broadcasts.” Indeed Daystar and TBN, which own studios in Jerusalem, regularly broadcast Roth’s missionary message to the Jews.

Thank you, Mordechai Yaakov Allen, for your clarification and am happy that there are people like you that know how to expose these type of people.
Shabbat Shalom,
David

Reb David,
First of all, I’m no Torah scholar. I’m just a former missionary who was awakened by the strong aroma of burning coffee, so thank you for your confidence. Secondly, you are correct in stating that I intended my words for a Jewish audience. However, my specific aim in responding to Sid Wroth, et al, is to expose his words and subsequent efforts for what they truly are, Amalekish. It would not take much study of Avodah Zarah, Rambam’s 613 Mitzvos (specifically 35-44) or any number of commentaries on parshos Ki Sisa 25:17-18 or Mishpatim 23:13 – most notably Rav S. R. Hirsch – to draw some disturbing parallels. My main concern is that such missionary efforts as Mr. Wroth’s not be construed as friendly to the Israel of Hashem in any way, and, thus, welcomed by the uninitiated or unaware who may venture onto this site or, chash v’sholom, onto his.

I am not learned enough to understand fully nor discuss the content of the comment of Mordechai Yaakov Allen, but as I agree with his conclusion, I am sure that his analysis of the verses are water-tight. What could help my understanding, though,,if he could back his words from our oral tradition (chazal- talmud/medrash or even later sources), especially as his words are primarily addressed to a Jewish audience.

Sid, is that Roth or Wroth?

 

It is not surprising that Sid, et al, have joined the fight for Jews in Israel. What may be surprising to those who see him as a friend of Israel, however, is that while he is fighting for Israel he is allied with Hamas! He’s fighting for Jews, alright, precisely like the tunnel rats of Gaza. How can this be? It is not difficult to understand, if one can read, that is.

 

Deuteronomy 30:15-18 says very clearly: “See, I have set before you today life and prosperity, and death and adversity; in that I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, that you may live and multiply, and that the Lord your God may bless you in the land where you are entering to possess it. But if your heart turns away and you will not obey, but are drawn away and worship other gods and serve them, I declare to you today that you shall surely perish.”

 

You see, Sid thinks he is part of the promised blessing. He thinks the miracles supposedly brought-on by the preaching of the gospel will draw Jewish souls. Unfortunately, he may be correct.  But, again, to anyone who can read, such a “success” brings little comfort.

 

Deuteronomy 13:1-4 says: “If a prophet or a dreamer of dreams arises among you and gives you a sign or a wonder, and the sign or the wonder comes true, concerning which he spoke to you, saying, ‘Let us go after other gods (whom you have not known) and let us serve them, you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams; for the Lord your God is testing you to find out if you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. You shall follow the Lord your God and fear Him; and you shall keep His commandments, listen to His voice, serve Him, and cling to Him.” 

 

 If, indeed, this scenario is being played-out in Israel at this time, as Sid so says, then the warning which follows for the one who “counsel(s) rebellion against the Lord your God who brought you from the land of Egypt and redeemed you from the house of slavery, to seduce you from the way in which the Lord your God commanded you to walk” must also be considered. It is too awful to put in this writing, but the prescribed response to such rebellion may be read in Deuteronomy 13:5-11.

 

Sid seems to think he has some kind of promise in his pocket, from the words of Genesis 12:3, granting him the authority to spread his rebellion. He obviously didn’t read or understand the previous verse or the balance of the one he quotes. I would love to be in the room when (if) the “scales fall from his eyes” (those that know, please excuse the reference) and he sees that, in his ignorance and heresy, he has joined ranks with those who would destroy Israel from above, from below and…from within.
