The Deadly Error of “Christian” Zionism

"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God." ~ Jesus (Matthew 5:9)

A recent letter writer to the editor of our local paper espouses a deadly, anti-Christian, Jewish perversion of the Holy Bible: “Christian” Zionism.

Letter to the Editor: “Christians [Zionists] should support Israel”, by Barbara O’Donnell

“A nation under siege — no, I am not talking about our country, although some think this is so. I am talking about Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East. Israel is surrounded by enemies whose only reason for living is to drive her into the sea. Imagine tiny Israel whose dimensions are about the size of New Jersey fighting an enemy hundreds of times larger and determined to see her demise.

“We who believe in biblical prophecy should know that God is not finished with Israel and in a time to come will fight for her against her enemies. In the meantime we Christians need to stand up for Israel and her right to exist, and her absolute right to defend herself. God, who always honors his word, says: “I will bless those who bless Israel and will curse those who curse her.” Whose side will you be on?”

“God never said that. God said to Abraham, “I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
Abraham is the father of Jews, Christians, and Muslims. And God’s point was that all the world would be blessed through people of faith, not that any earthly nation should blindly support all the political policies of another earthly nation.”

“I’ll be on the side that acts with forgiveness and compassion toward their enemies. In this case, I cannot be on either side.”

Daniel and the Guest (above) are correct. Barbara O’Donnell has put words into the mouth of God which are not in the Bible, and she’s willing to help Christ-hating Israeli Jews destroy their enemies based upon her misunderstanding (=perversion) of holy Scripture. Jesus didn’t come to destroy men’s lives but to save them.
