A New Perspective for Religion-Based Foreign Policy

Talk show host writes two books that challenge the way right wing evangelicals view worldwide politics

**FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE**

Former Talk Show Host Challenges Evangelicals’ Politics in New Book REDLANDS, Calif. –

With religious turmoil in the Middle East at the top of international news and religious disputes prominent, religion is at the forefront of discussion in the nation.

Author Joe Ortiz presents a study of the Bible based on etymology and disproves many of the principles previously believed by Christians in his book, The End Times Passover: Etymological Challenges to Millenarian Doctrines (now available through AuthorHouse).

Many Christians are anticipating the end of the world, never more than now with the outbreak of Holy Wars and religious terrorism in the Middle East and throughout the world. They are also anticipating the Rapture, or the return of Jesus Christ to Earth to rescue the righteous before Armageddon.

By deciphering etymological clues in the Bible, Ortiz reveals proof that Christians cannot count on the Rapture for their salvation. He also argues against a number of recognized Christian principles, including the idea that the Promised Land is located in the Middle East, the belief that human souls go directly to heaven or hell after death and the promise that God’s only children are ethnic Jews.

These truths are particularly important now, as America intervenes in the Holy Wars taking place in the Middle East.

“Right wing evangelicals who promote the ‘Left Behind’ doctrine such as Tim LaHaye, John Hagee, Hal Lindsey and others arguably believe that the state of Israel is key to Bible prophecy,’ Ortiz says.

“The proponents of this erroneous doctrine have unwittingly been pounding the theological hammers on U.S. foreign policy for over a century, only to drive a bigger wedge between Jews and Arabs who want peace in the Middle East.”

Ortiz argues that Christians should act as peacemakers instead of supporting a military solution to a centuries-old feud.

“It took over 20 years of research and writing to provide conclusive answers to the premillennial, dispensational debate,” Ortiz says.

“When those preachers and teachers of Bible prophecy read this book, they will soon realize they are promoting a militant and destructive doctrine instead of a genuine gospel of peace.”

A former talk show host, Ortiz was the first Mexican-American in the United States to host a talk show on an English-speaking commercial radio station. He has more than 30 years of experience in social services and communications, most recently as the director of public relations and fund raising for Catholic Charities of San Bernardino/Riverside, Calif., and also managed the organization’s homeless family shelter in Palm Springs, Calif.

His media experience includes more than 20 years reporting and hosting programs on TV and radio, as well as writing for a syndicated publisher in California. He currently owns his own public relations consulting company, Joe Ortiz and Associates. His first book, Saved? What Do You Mean Saved? was published in 1983.

my son, it is Torah, that was given by G-d. the rest are human's writing, included in what you call 'bible'. you are talking about people words against people words. i advise you, before touching such topic, to STUDY IN DEPTH: juwdaism, christianity, buddism, sintoism, at least; plus most of the world philosophy. you will find this in The Western Canon by Howard Bloom.

your eternal admirer.
persevere.
