Trust but dissect,
Recent studies have indicated that most Christian evangelicals now support Israel because they recognize Israel as a strong ally of the United States.
Fine with me,
And, because they are proud, patriotic Americans, they want the US and Israel to stand together against the common threats facing both countries.
Being proud patriotic Americans ain’t got nothin’ to with nothin’. Common as in, to both nations, as opposed to those who oppose Likud,
Only a small minority are focused on support for Israel in order to hasten Armageddon and the end of days. Many pastors with whom I’ve spoken tell me that while the end of days theology is part and parcel of Christian belief, no action by men (or women) can hasten Armageddon; only G-d can do that.
I agree completely, but worry about numerology, gnosticism etc etc in the Christian faith, while understanding its’ place in religious experience.
