Dear Michael. I'm not sure where your head was pre-2019. I've been in the Evangelical church for about the same length of time as you and I've seen a theological anti-Semitism at best and a real Jew hatred at worst. We know that, for the most part Jews did not embrace Jesus as their messiah. As you point out; through history Christians have made that exercise a whole lot easier. It's taught that the Jews failed to be the light of the world. If the Jews were a failure to be the light to the world we would not be having this conversation right now for God has chosen to use your people to bring His message to mankind. Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. Perhaps that’s exactly what the church has been doing for centuries as it has rejected God’s covenant people: Israel. Jews rejected Jesus & the Church has rejected God's people. My question is: Is it possible that people like you and me have actually contributed to the problem?

There are no "Christian anti-Semites", there are anti-Semites who call themselves Christians. Why should Christ and those ho are called by his name wear the label anti-Semite? What you call the followers of Christ you call him. John wrote: "Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him." If you hate the Jewish people you are none of his. This is why one of the greatest of all evils is to carry the name of God upon your self in vain. If you do the works of Satan, you are not a follower of Christ but a destroyer. If you destroy in the name of Christ, you will be destroyed. It grieves me that the ungodly bring reproach upon the worthy name by which followers of Christ are called, when they are not of the body, but are associated with the body of believers through ignorance or malice. because of this, I call myself a "believer" instead of a Christian, because most "Christians" are anything but. It's just religion, if you do not obey Christ.

Look no further than the Qanon freaks and their fuhrer. Anti Semitism is in their forefront every time they lie about Soros and the Rothschild family.

I remember going to hear Perry Stone speak at a church, about 10 years ago I think. In the middle of some preaching the Lord stopped him and gave him a prophecy. He said that in the future antisemitism (I wonder if that should really be anti-Jew, but that is another matter) will come to the United States and He will use it to drive Jewish people to Israel. Perry Stone loves Israel and the Jewish people and this does not mean that God would be causing this to happen but He can see the end from the beginning and can turn what Satan intends for evil into good. I remember thinking that he really missed it on that one because in the America of even that recently it seemed kind of crazy. But Perry heard right on that one, sad to say. Of course, that doesn't mean we would be doing God a favor by joining in the persecution of Jewish people either for those people will have to answer to God for their actions. One of the main fallacies of bigotry and racism is over-generalization. It bugs me when I hear things like "The Jews rejected Jesus" when almost all the earliest followers of Jesus were Jewish and brought us the Old and New Testaments, not to mention Messiah himself. And have all gentiles accepted Jesus? Not by a long shot, unfortunately, although you would think that that was the case when someone says the above phrase. There are conservative and liberal Jews, like in other groups. And so forth.
