We hope you will read this article in its entirety! If you are a believer, you have only one of two choices available to you in regard to your “position” on Israel. Click on the link below to go to the full article…which comes to us through the Jerusalem Connection website. There are Christians for Israel and Christians against Israel….which one are you? Be sure to read the comments at the end. We are in agreement with one who said, “The division within the church flows from that masterful 4th Century Constantinian deception. A wise person would seek out the Hebrew roots of his/her faith, and rely totally on God’s Word to guide/direct/instruct your “faith walk”.” …G&L

Then the Lord said, “Hear what the unjust judge said. And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18:6-8)
The question could hardly have graver consequences and so is not easily asked. But it is hanging right out there and, with increasing stridency, demanding a response.
Is the issue of Israel (the people and the land) – whether we stand with or against it – ultimately creating irreversible division in the world wide Christian community?
To take it even further:
Will great numbers of people who consider themselves Christians one day find that, by choosing to side with the nations against Israel, they in fact joined with the Enemy’s camp against the very Lord they profess to love?
Or will great numbers of people who consider themselves Christians one day discover that, by standing with Israel in the face of incessant international censure of the Jewish state, they have allowed themselves to be deceived, have forgotten what Christianity is really all about, and have aided and abetted a rogue regime in criminally abusing its foes?
The matter cannot be avoided, for a deep – and ever deepening – schism in Christianity already exists concerning it.
And it is set to fracture more.
