The Judeo Christian Blasphemous Lie
The term Judeo-Christian
The term Judeo-Christian is not a Biblical term and is not found anywhere in the God's Word, The Bible.
Many people use the term Judeo-Christian only to signify that Christianity and Judaism, both old and current Judaism, have many common moral values. Even though that is true, Christians still must not join the two names together, since that same moral argument could also be used to join Christianity to many of the cults, or even Islam. Therefore, would Christians ever accept the name, or use the term, "Islamo-Christian," "Mormon-Christian," or any other hyphenated non Christian name? Hopefully no!
Christianity did not grow out of the Biblical religion called Judaism, that was based on ancestral traditions (Gal 1:14), and the doctrines of men (Mat 15:9). Moreover, as the apostle Paul stated; he, (and others) with the blessings of, and under the authority of the Jewish leaders, and what the Bible calls Judaism, persecuted the Church and tried to destroy it (Gal 1:13). Judaism, at the time of Christ, was an antichrist religion (1 John 2:22 & 1 John 4:3) denying Jesus as the Messiah and trying to destroy Christianity.......and the antichrist definition still still applies to the religion called Judaism today.
Christianity and Judaism are diametrically opposed to one another. Christianity recognizes Jesus as God in the flesh, while Judaism opposes Jesus's deity entirely; even Islam respects Jesus more than does Judaism (Islam considers Jesus as a prophet of God, however as only a prophet, not the Jesus of the Bible who is God in the flesh). Moreover, Judaism, as with many other non-Christian religions, base their after death relationship with God (if they even believe in life after death) on their personal earthly works, not on the salvation that God Himself provided. Those are very important differences that a true Christian can not ignore, however, many do, including the majority of Western Christian pastors!
Therefore the term Judeo-Christian is a hyphenated blasphemous misnomer that, once a Bible believing Christian becomes informed, should never again join together as one.
The term Judeo-Christian is not a Biblical term, moreover, Christianity did not grow or come out of Judaism; at least not as it is commonly perceived. Faith in the Messiah Jesus, who fulfilled God's symbolic Old Testament Law, is the foundation of Christianity, not the corruption of God's Law that was and is currently called Judaism. Christianity was not and is not founded on the religion that Jesus called "the precepts of men."
It appears that the term Judeo-Christian was first emphasized in the 1800's but did not gain common usage until the latter half of the 20th century. It can therefore be stated that Judeo-Christian is a secular term the origins of which are certainly not from God but rather from the precepts of men.
There is also a common misconception that what is called Judaism began with Abram/Abraham but that is not true. However it is true that much of the foundation for understanding the salvation for all men, that the Messiah Jesus accomplished on the Cross, began with Abram/Abraham. The metaphor example for Christianity began with Abraham’s faith, trust, and obedience to God and his symbolic sacrifice of his son Isaac (symbolic because God provided the actual sacrifice; Gen 22:13).
Some people erroneously consider Romans 11:17-20 as indicating that a non-Jew becomes grafted into Judaism when they are saved, however when read carefully it becomes obvious that is not what it is saying. What Romans is saying is that the Jews were broken off from the root (the root being God/Jesus, John 15: 5-6) because of their unbelief, and by faith all believers have been grafted in. It is true that the Israelites are called the first branches, but their descendants, who were later called Jews, were also the ones who were first broken off.
Therefore believers are not grafted into Judaism but into the presence, the salvation of God, Jesus. Judaism was broken off, destroyed and burned as prophesied in Isaiah 27:11. The formal, ritualistic, Judaism of the Bible is no longer in the world and it will never return (see section titled "What is modern Judaism").
Moreover, modern Judaism (as well as the Judaism of the Bible) rejects Jesus as God, therefore Judaism embraces and worships a different god than Christianity. That factor alone should preclude any Christian from ever using the term Judeo-Christian in reference to their faith.
Now whenever you hear the blasphemous name Judeo-Christian, use it as a reminder to:
1. Inform Christians of the Truth.
2. To pray that those following modern Judaism (religious Jews) come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

Were God's promises to Abram conditional or unconditional?
Exodus 19:5 Now therefore, if you will indeed obey my voice and keep my covenant, you shall be my treasured possession among all peoples, for all the earth is mine; 6 and you shall be to me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation. These are the words that you shall speak to the people of Israel."
Deuteronomy 8:1 "The whole commandment that I command you today you shall be careful to do, that you may live and multiply, and go in and possess the land that the LORD swore to give to your fathers…
What was the predicted consequence if the conditions were not meet?
Deuteronomy 8:19-20 And if you forget the LORD your God and go after other gods and serve them and worship them, I solemnly warn you today that you shall surely perish. 20 Like the nations that the LORD makes to perish before you,so shall you perish, because you would not obey the voice of the LORD your God.
¨ Deuteronomy 28:58-64 "If you are not careful to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that you may fear this glorious and awesome name, the LORD your God, 59 then the LORD will bring on you and your offspring extraordinary afflictions, afflictions severe and lasting, and sicknesses grievous and lasting. 60 And he will bring upon you again all the diseases of Egypt, of which you were afraid, and they shall cling to you. 61Every sickness also and every affliction that is not recorded in the book of this law, the LORD will bring upon you, until you are destroyed. 62 Whereas you were as numerous as the stars of heaven, you shall be left few in number, because you did not obey the voice of the LORD your God. 63 And as the LORD took delight in doing you good and multiplying you, so the LORD will take delight in bringing ruin upon you and destroying you. And you shall be plucked off the land that you are entering to take possession of it. 64"And the LORD will scatter you among all peoples, from one end of the earth to the other, and there you shall serve other gods of wood and stone, which neither you nor your fathers have known.
¨ Neh 1:8 Remember the word that you commanded your servant Moses, saying, 'If you are unfaithful, I will scatter you among the peoples,
¨ Jer 9:13-16 And the LORD says: "Because they have forsaken my law that I set before them, and have not obeyed my voice or walked in accord with it, 14 but have stubbornly followed their own hearts and have gone after the Baals, as their fathers taught them. 15 Therefore thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: Behold, I will feed this people with bitter food, and give them poisonous water to drink. 16 I will scatter them among the nations whom neither they nor their fathers have known, and I will send the sword after them, until I have consumed them."
¨ Eze 5:10 Therefore fathers shall eat their sons in your midst, and sons shall eat their fathers. And I will execute judgments on you, and any of you who survive I will scatter to all the winds.
¨ 1Ki 14:15,16 the LORD will strike Israel as a reed is shaken in the water, and root up Israel out of this good land that he gave to their fathers and scatter them beyond the Euphrates, because they have made their Asherim, provoking the LORD to anger. 16 And he will give Israel up because of the sins of Jeroboam, which he sinned and made Israel to sin."
¨ Joshua 23:15-16 But just as all the good things that the LORD your God promised concerning you have been fulfilled for you, so the LORD will bring upon you all the evil things, until he has destroyed you from off this good land that the LORD your God has given you, 16 if you transgress the covenant of the LORD your God, which he commanded you, and go and serve other gods and bow down to them. Then the anger of the LORD will be kindled against you, and you shall perish quickly from off the good land that he has given to you."
¨ Eze 12:13-15 And I will spread my net over him, and he shall be taken in my snare. And I will bring him to Babylon, the land of the Chaldeans, yet he shall not see it, and he shall die there. 14 And I will scatter toward every wind all who are around him, his helpers and all his troops, and I will unsheathe the sword after them. 15 And they shall know that I am the LORD, when I disperse them among the nations and scatter them among the countries.
Did Israel ever break these conditions and experience these warnings of God? If so, How?
¨ 2 Kings 24:1-3 In his days, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came up, and Jehoiakim became his servant three years. Then he turned and rebelled against him. 2 And the LORD sent against him bands of the Chaldeans and bands of the Syrians and bands of the Moabites and bands of the Ammonites, and sent them against Judah to destroy it, according to the word of the LORD that he spoke by his servants the prophets. 3 Surely this came upon Judah at the command of the LORD, to remove them out of his sight, for the sins of Manasseh, according to all that he had done,
¨ Eze 23:9-10 Therefore I delivered her into the hands of her lovers, into the hands of the Assyrians, after whom she lusted. 10 These uncovered her nakedness; they seized her sons and her daughters; and as for her, they killed her with the sword; and she became a byword among women, when judgment had been executed on her.
