Abstract

Zionist Christianity has essentially been formed based on the belief in "world peace" in the light of Christ's millennial kingdom. Using documentary analysis, the following paper analyzes and reviews the foundations of world peace in Zionist Christianity. The idea of world peace in this school of thought is based on the prophecies of the prophets in the Bible, God's special revelation in Christ, millennialism, Christianity, prudence, the evil nature of the world and its domination by evil powers, and the explicit teachings of Christ and the apostles about peace. Some of these principles, such as the call of Christ and the apostles to peace, and the return of Christ and his role in world peace, are, of course, based on plausible interpretations. But they have ignored one biblical principle, i.e. the equality and brotherhood of all mankind to the one God, one parent and one leader. Other principles, from the point of view of reason, the Bible, as well as other Christian groups, have some flaws that are discussed in this study.
