|"Overcoming Christian Zionism" in the|
service of the Devil
However, for those Christians and Jews who have made their religion a core part of their identity, and presumably, that would particularly apply to the clergy, there is a very basic and irrefutable reason for supporting Israel. Because all throughout the Bible, God says you should.
In fact, it's put substantially much more strongly than that. You don't have to be an expert theologian to get the straightforward reading of the Bible that, at its foundation, is the message from God to " support Israel... or else."
Yet there are people calling themselves priests, rabbis, and ministers who are wrapped up in their hate of Israel, and try to undermine the validity of the religions they profess to practice. Some of these strange characters, a combination of the vicious and misguided, are meeting in Vancouver next month.
It's hard to read a few consecutive chapters of The Good Book without hearing about God raining down curses, misfortunes, and destruction upon one or another of the enemies of Israel.
Israel's enemies are depicted as the embodiment of evil and indeed, if you take the Bible at its word, Satan is numbered foremost among them.
If the Prince of Darkness were to have an online chat profile, his might read exactly like that of former Ontario Deputy Minister of Education, Ben Levin, the admitted child pornographer and pedophile: "there are no taboos."
One of the taboos from which Satan is obviously exempt is lying. In order to do his job properly, the Devil has no obligation to tell the truth. Nor is he obliged to not take advantage of people's stupidity.
|Anti-Israel "churches" support those who|
intentionally slaughter children
I am not inclined to ascribe human behavior to supernatural influence. But it's hard not to acknowledge there is a real thing such as evil when you see innocent people lined up on a beach, made to kneel, and then have their heads slowly sliced off by hooded maniacs claiming to act in the name of God.
Similarly, claiming to act in a "quest for justice," is the Vancouver conference of dimwitted clergy who are members of radical denominations aligned with supporters of people who intentionally slit the throats of innocent infants and with overt anti-Semites. Some Presbyterians, Anglicans, and United Church of Canada members have partnered with the "Palestinian Sabeel Center for Liberation Theology" which is closely linked with the terrorists of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. In order to try to justify their antisemitism, they wave around a so-called Kairos Palestine document, a pseudo-theological declaration that was concocted by terror-supporters and is riddled with Jew-hate.
I have no religious dog in this fight. My support for Israel is based on secular morality, and not on the texts of any religion. If these people want to have a hate-fest against Jews and the concept of Jewish self-determination, that's their own business. But at the least they should recognize that the god they worship isn't the one in the Bible. If you believe that sort of thing, there's no way to avoid recognizing that they are worshipers of the god that the God of the Bible has cursed to Hell.
