Opinion: Like World War II and the Holocaust never even happened.
Anti-Semitism in Europe has roots in the third century teaching of the early Church. Replacement Theology began in the under St. John Chrysostom (347-407 AD), Jerome (347-420) and Augustine, in his work, City of God (354-430 AD).
John Chrysostom was the Patriarch of Constantinople, yet he described the synagogue as a “place of meetings for the ‘assassins of Christ … a den of thieves; a house of ill fame, a dwelling of iniquity, a refuge of devils, a gulf and abyss of perdition.’”
Later, Augustine theorized that the church had replaced Israel in God’s plan, and that the prophecy of the 1000 year reign of Christ on earth and the redemption of the Jews as the chosen people was “inferior” and “carnal.” Augustine adopted the position that the reign of Christ should be much more “spiritual” and it would occur during this present Church Age.
Having come to this conclusion, therefore, Augustine wrote that the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple in AD 70 was brought about divinely, that God had ordained the end of unbelieving Jewish Israel and that the prophecies of condemnation and judgment still remain for national Israel and the Jewish people.
Many mainline Protestant denominations, having sprung from Catholicism, adhere to replacement theology today. While thousands of Bible verses can easily prove Augustine wrong, an astounding number of people who call themselves Christian view Israel and the Jew in an evil light.
Replacement Theology may be either Amillennial or Postmillennial. It is currently the most popular in Catholic teaching, as well as the World Council of Churches, the Presbyterian Church USA, the Methodist Church, the Lutheran Church (ELCA), the Anglican Church and the United Church of Christ.
How else could a supposedly Christian continent be once again falling into anti-Semitism, just 70 years after the closing of Auschwitz?
The Prophetic Number 70:
Seventy nations make up the descendants of Noah through Shem, Ham, and Japheth in Genesis 10, which provides the genealogy of the nations known at that time.
Seventy people accompanied Jacob on his journey to Egypt (Gen. 46:26–27).
Seventy sevens (490 years) were determined for Israel to complete its transgression and bring in the first coming of Messiah (Dan. 9:24).
Seventy is also specially connected with Jerusalem. The city kept 70 years of Sabbaths while Judah was in Babylonian captivity (Jeremiah 25:11).
“Our days may come to seventy years, or eighty, if our strength endures; yet the best of them are but trouble and sorrow, for they quickly pass, and we fly away” (Ps. 90:10).
