Smooth Stone (someone whom I greatly respect) and I seem to be at odds regarding evangelical Christian support of Israel.
Please visit his informative site and scroll down to "Televangelist Zola Levitt in life struggle vs. cancer." Read all the comments and feel free to chime in here. I don't want to take up any more space on his site as I think I am grating on his nerves (sorry Smooth!).
The man in question is Zola Levitt, a Jewish born convert to Christianity who preaches on television. From the Zola Levitt Ministries website:
What We Believe
Zola Levitt Ministries, Inc., is a non-profit 501(c) organization guided by the standard of Romans 1:16 — “To the Jew first and also to the Gentile.”
We hold to a strictly literal and inerrant Bible interpretation, salvation through Christ alone, a soon pre-tribulation Rapture of all believers and the establishment of a thousand-year kingdom on Earth.
The evangelism of the unbelievers and the exhortation of the believers take precedence over all other activities of this ministry. (emphasis mine)
I mean, come on... I sincerely do not disrespect Christians as a whole. I do feel, however, that the true motives of Evangelical and Apocalyptic Christians in regard to their support of Israel must be brought to light. I don't appreciate being a pawn in their Armageddon scenarios.
Prove me wrong.
