With tensions high in Mideast, evangelical Christians tighten embrace of Israel
Servants to Christ is one of scores of evangelical Christian organizations working in Israel on a variety of charitable missions. And its presence is just one example of the increasingly tight embrace of the Jewish state by both the leadership of American evangelical churches and organizations and their grass-roots supporters.

Pro-Israel rhetoric — fueled in part by increasing tensions in the Middle East over Iran's nuclear program and the threat it might pose to the Jewish state — is a staple of many U.S. evangelical leaders' speeches and sermons. ...

Then the Bible contradicts itself, since you're suggesting justification is off the table so far as saving faith is concerned. All you have to do is believe certain facts about Christ's person, which even devils can do.

By your simplistic understanding of 1 John 4, Paul was just as mean & divisive as I am, since his Epistle to the Galatians denounces those who, while being nominally Christians, added works of the Law to the Gospel, just as sacerdotal churches do. How can Paul say this if all one has to believe is that Jesus is God incarnate?

How many Iraqis are the sort of Christians we would accept as members in our churches? It seems to me most are sacerdotalists.

It is ironic, & tragic, that a consequence of our ”blessing” Israel with diplomatic support, vast amounts of welfare (foreign aid) & indirectly, military intervention, we have *cursed* those identifying themselves with Christ in the region, hastening their extinction (by murder if not emigration) because they are unfairly identified by Muslims & nationalists with American imperialism.

Israel was well able to defend itself in its 1st 25 yrs. of existence w/o American support; which was it then, blessing or cursing? But Nixon's Operation Nickel Grass in 1973 changed everything, & brought on our first energy crisis.

Racist in regard to unconditional support. I know of no standard evangelicals use to determine their level of support. Never have I heard (until now with Mr. Lincoln), any analysis of who our foreign policy could affect Christians in the Middle East. Seems like the Faith has been but significantly in Iraq since 2003. That's outside the scope of Israel, but an example of evangelical short-sightedness.

Matthew, supporting Israel is not tantamount to racism immediately as you seem to imply. Please elaborate...
Where do I begin with someone who thinks Gods people could be annihilated?

Worse, who would support shedding blood to justify their dispensational heresies?

Matthew, no doubt there are people who are nominal Christians in the Middle East that we should help, and helping Israel is one of the best ways of doing it, 'Israel is only safe state for Mideast Christians'. It is the Islamist who is persecuting Christians The Beleaguered Christians of The Palestinian-Controlled Areas and The forgotten Christians of the East. One way not to forget these persecuted groups is by supporting Israel.

The Israelite people may yet have a role in the future, but they'd still be in Christ's One Bride. We don't have to support that nation indiscriminately. The claimed future "unblinding" doesn't excuse bad actions by evangelicals in the present. There are Christians in the middle east to whom we owe supreme loyalty, Jews and Greeks. Racism cuts two ways.

SteveR, you seem to be an individual or perhaps even a member of The Churches Against Israel. Now of course, many Christians have a good reason To be thought of Christian Zionists: The Real Terrorists. However, Islam is an enemy of Christianity,Like It Or Not, The War We Fight Is Against Islam. We have an aircraft carrier permanently stationed in the Middle East called Israel, One that has contributed greatly to the world by the way, Israel's Contributions. So, it doesn't matter one iota if the present day Israel is not living up to either it's old or New Testament responsibilities to God, because God's promises to it are not predicated on Israel's behavior What About God's Promises to Israel?

Why self styled Evangelicals have become spiritual allies with those grafted into the thornbush of what is now called judaism is theologically frightening. People, please remember that the pharisic religion was an evangelical religion for many centuries, and today there is more Hebrew blood flowing in Palestine, Syria, Iraq and Iran than the European colony called Israel.

”God blesses those who bless the Jews and curses whoever curses the Jews…”
American evangelicals have become ”useful idiots” for unbelieving Israel.
What did Christians do during the Jewish Wars? Did they ”have the Jews' back“ during the Siege of Jerusalem? No; so far as anyone knows, they obeyed Christ & skipped town.
Right, because it is utter madness to defend a people who are constantly villianized, demonized, and treated with utter contempt for just being Jewish from the tyranny of a professing, fake church (those false professors from Rome and Protestantism), maniacal Islam, Nazi-facism, pogroms, and others as well. I wonder if it would have been obeying Christ for the citizens of Auschwitz to skip town as well and let the Nazis have their way. Don't get me wrong, secular Israel is NOT a believing state, and no one should just blindly support everything they do. And if you do not agree with the dispensational interpretation of Gen. 12:3, fair enough. But to refer to EVERY evangelical as "useful idiots" for Israel (btw, why are they "useful?" Don't tell me that you've bought the ant-semitic lie that Jews are all trying to take over the world) is borderline anti-semitic and I expect more from servants of Messiah!

Neil, you should read the article by an anti-dispensationalist, Think-Israel. Because even he pointed out that:

Genesis 12
2 And I will make you a great nation, And I will bless you, And make your name great; And so you shall be a blessing;
3 And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed."---NASB

So it is not just dispensationalists such as my pastor, e.g., Does God Have a Future for Israel?: A Study of Romans 11 or Tom Ice,
Lovers of Zion: A Brief History of Christian Zionism.

Yes, Christians are the wild olive branches that are grafted into the Jewish root. The long history of anti-Semitic practices of the Romish church is well-known, q.v.,

Yes. No one is justified by [the ceremonial] works of the Law, Gal. 2:16.

If we don't follow (obey) Jesus and His Word every day of our lives (future faith), how can we be ultimately saved?
