Orpah today are those rejectionist, apostate Gentiles who, while claiming to be Christians, have chosen to sever themselves from the very foundations of that faith – the Jewish roots. They are adherents of so-called Replacement Theology or Secessionism – believing that the Church has fully replaced Israel in God’s redemptive plan for mankind. On top of that, they have turned on the Jewish people who remain the true focus of these purposes of the Lord – the apple of His eye.
For years, the spirit of Orpah has manifested as covert and explicit anti-Semitism through professing Christian leaders, churches, organizations and groups. Count among them the Roman Catholic Church and the 349 Protestant denominations represented in the World Council of Churches, including the often at the forefront Uniting Church in Australia and Presbyterian Church USA.
