    What is your problem with them? Their Statement of Faith is unambiguous - and so is their mission, they are helping Jewish families move to Israel, and along the way they bring aid to many who evidently, by the figures shown on their home page, do not choose to go.

    Why would your pastor say they have a "hidden agenda"? How would he know? How can he tell from the Philippines? It seems to me, whether you agree with their ministry or not, their agenda is anything but hidden, its right there on the website.

    I don't understand why he would say its wrong to help Jewish people get back to Israel. Isn't that their homeland?

    I don't see anything there on "Forcing" them to go back. I certainly didnt get the idea that its just a couple of people trying to get all the Jews out of their own country.

    One criticism I could make would be that they don't seem to be attempting to give them the Gospel.....

    If it were me, Id think that they could incorporate that easily into their ministry...

    From the looks of their website, Ebenezer is a pre-mil/pre-trib mission work. I have no doubt they do endeavor to evangleize their contacts. It also looks to be the brain-child of one man. Though the work is made up of more than the founding couple.

    I think differences in culture and language; the work is interdenominational and is based in England, account for some of the difficulties in evaluating the work.

    All this to say, Your Milage May Vary, in supporting this work.
