Aaron writes, "Many Western Christians support Israel because they think of Israel as a bastion against things that they’re profoundly afraid of and which, all too often, they hate. They think of the IDF in particular as a force protecting them from terrorism."
Aaron writes, "There’s a heresy which is just as bad which many of our brothers and sisters, in their zeal to get as far away from Replacement Theology as possible, adopt. I am talking about Dual Covenant Theology."
Aaron writes, "Our world is run by men and women who don’t fear God and who thus look to mere Humanistic philosophy for guidance. This phenomenon exists even in large segments of what calls itself the Church, most often in a simple lack of regard for the authority of Scripture."
Aaron writes, "In the meantime, you can also take a lesson from the Apostle Paul, who made a deliberate point of encouraging support, both practical and prayer support, for the Believers in Israel."
Aaron writes, "We belong to the Kingdom of Christ and we should do all we can to not participate in things which distract us. I thought I was doing a pretty good job of that, but I learned from Star Wars 8 and it’s online aftermath that I still have some attachments to the 'things of this world.'"
Aaron writes, "Daily prayer, Bible study and fellowship with our fellow Believers is the formula for success. Focus on what God is doing in this world and try not to worry too much about what the Enemy is doing in this world."
Aaron writes, "Most Christians who would say they support Israel are no doubt sincere, but the fact is, they really don’t actually know much about this country. Israel is “the Land of the Bible” but it’s not a museum."
Aaron writes, "Seeing Israel right in front of their faces forces people to consider the possibility that if the Bible was telling the truth about the re-gathering of the Jewish People and the reconstitution of their country on the map of the world, than maybe it’s telling the truth about all that other stuff..."
Aaron writes, "As an Israeli Police officer who gave an informal security briefing I recently attended put it, they are bracing for attacks that will be “all of the above, all the time, everywhere, all at once.” What can Israel’s Christian friends do to help?"
Aaron writes, "The modern State of Israel, with all of its imperfections and faults, is a project of the God of the Bible. I’m not a prophet, but I predict that as we move forward fewer and fewer people, Jewish or not, who don’t believe in the God of the Bible are going to support Israel or even not be opposed to it."
