The heresy of “replacement theology”

Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz, writing in Breaking Israel News, said: “The Catholic Church’s response to recent turmoil over the Temple Mount in Jerusalem confirms that the Church is using Islamic replacement theology, in “direct violation of the Torah”, to “promote heresy” and deny the Jewish and Biblical connection to the Mount… Replacement theology is a Christian doctrine which holds that the Church “replaced” Israel in God’s plan and in the covenant with the Biblical patriarchs. Replacement theology has been a core tenet of the Catholic Church for the majority of its existence. Some mainstream Christian theologians and denominations have rejected this belief, perceiving the modern State of Israel as the physical manifestation of God’s everlasting covenant with the Jewish People… the belief remains a core aspect of Catholicism for many… Islam espouses an even broader and more extreme version of replacement theology than Catholicism, establishing Islam as the one true religion usurping both Judaism and Christianity. The Islamic doctrine of tahrif teaches that earlier monotheistic have been corrupted, while the Koran presents a pure version of the divine message that they originally contained.

God says: “I ask then, did God reject his people? By no means! God did not reject His people, whom He foreknew!… So too, at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace… In order that God’s purpose in election might stand: not be works but by Him who calls… Again I ask, did they stumble so as to fall beyond recovery? Not at all!… I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery brothers, so that you may not be conceited. Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved.” (Romans 11:1-2, 5; 9:11-12; 11:11, 25-26)
The Jerusalem Connection says: The blasphemous heresy of “replacement theology” is reserved for those who willfully reject the clear declarations of Romans 9-11, be they Catholic or Protestant. If they are saved at all, which excludes Muslims, they will be “called the least in the kingdom of heaven.”

*Btw, even the Reformation was for the most part still following the idea of “supersessionalism”, the same basic idea that the Church supersedes National Israel in the Covenant Blessings!  And this really is grave error, biblically & theologically!
