From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Dawlin Ureña (born January 2, 1969) is a pastor, theologian and director of a Christian website. He is the author of two books, “La Ciencia y La Biblia” and “¿Creación o Evolución?”. He is currently an aide to the president of the Dominican Republic (2008-2012).

History

In 2002, pastor Dawlin Ureña founded Iglesia Vida, the Spanish church of Resurrection Life Church, in Grand Rapids, Michigan, of which Ureña is an ordained minister.

Ureña and his family returned to the Dominican Republic in 2005 and founded Iglesia En la Roca and is currently pursuing a vision of building “10 Churches in 10 Years”. Since Iglesia en la Roca is located in the impoverished town where Ureña was born, he has formed a partnership with multiple individuals who want to see the Gospel preached, and is currently managing over 1,000 acres planted with avocados in order to fund his ministry.

Dawlin Ureña is also the founder and owner of STI Translations Inc., a translation company based in Grand Rapids, Michigan with over 100 contractors and serves many of the largest corporations in America.

Ureña´s website, Antesdelfin.com specializes in end time events, Christian breaking news, as well as family matters. According to Alexa.com, Antesdelfin.com[1] is one of the top 500 Spanish websites in most Latin American countries.


Controversies surrounding Dawlin Ureña

Both, in his books and in popular website, Ureña has been able to make hundreds of friends and foes. Popular Christian and secular media outlets often quote his work on a wide range of subjects, but none are more controversial than his firm stand for the right of Israel to exist and his staunch defense for Biblical Creationism. In many Latin American circles, Ureña is held in high regard because defending the right of Israel to exist is often marred by the coverage the "liberal media" provide, whereas Mr. Ureña uses the worldwide audience of his website to put forth a more "pro-Israel" stance. Due to the many highly controversial statements in his articles, he is often accused of Homophobia[2] [3], Xenophobia and Islamophobia [4], among other epithets.

Regarding the almost monolithic pro-evolution coverage that the evolution-creation debate receives in Latin America, Ureña provides a fresh and original insight into this topic, specially due to the very reduced creationist material available in the Spanish language. Many believe that this is the main reason why Ureña´s website has reached the largest audience of any non-corporate website in Spanish.

His detractors have created scores of Youtube videos [5]as well as websites fully or partially dedicated [6]to almost exclusively try to diminish Ureña´s influence in his Spanish speaking audience.

Some of the most popular writings of pastor Ureña have to do with sexuality. In his most widely controversial articles, he speaks openly against masturbation[7], homosexuality [8]and annal sex. Considering the many taboos proper of some of the highly Catholic cultures in Latin America, Ureña´s positions have gained him commendations and criticism in the Spanish speaking world.


Ureña receives threats from al Qaeda circles

Right after the terrorist attacks on the Twin Towers in New York, Ureña received threats[9] from individuals located in Morocco and Libya, claiming to be al Qaeda associated. The incident was reported to the security departments of the government and, among other things, Ureña was asked to remove a translated copy of the Koran that was available on his website. Due to the controversy, many of Ureñas controversial writings on the dangers and the rise of Islam in the American continent became even more popular.
