Thanks MadelineLove your sig.
However, the fact remains that many Christians have adopted this mentality that it is tainting the entire group. How I feel about Israel is not unique among Baptists for example, they are enormous supporters of Israel, and last year I traveled to Israel with a group comprised of Baptists and non-denominational Christians and it was wonderful----once I learned to ignore conversations on the Rapture and Creationism.
I am beginning to understand why there are so many Protestant denominations. My parents were very religious people and they were also public school teachers so I grew up with the historical context of Israel based on the Holocaust and the Old Testament Hebrew as the the people of Israel were God's chosen, and frankly while they were excited by the ingathering of the Jewish people into the state of Israel because of it's Biblical prophesy, they- now I, saw this as the right thing to do by the millions of Jews persecuted since the time of Christ. AND frankly I see it part of my obligation to do what ever I can do to protect Israel from destruction by it's Islamic neighbors.
Must run now. But will come back Monday for more conversation if it develops.
I find it impossible that you can be both a Christian and Anti-Israel, they're completely incompatible views.
Anyone who claims to be a Christian and takes a stand against Israel is obviously just a hate monger doing things in the name of Christ.
The New Testament tells Christians to pray for the peace of Israel :|
