Jack Sara, the president of Bethlehem Bible College and a prominent organizer of the Christ at the Checkpoint Conference, has revealed himself for what he is—a Christian who is committed to sharing the gospel with Jews while at the same time ignoring the actions and rhetoric of his fellow Arabs who seek to murder and oppress them. Sara can’t even bring himself to offer to his fellow Palestinians the ambivalent message of St. Augustine to early Christians about the Jews: “Do Not Slay Them!”
Dr. Gary Burge, Professor of New Testament and prominent theologian for anti-Israel 'fulfillment theology,' is making a comeback.
A small group of Palestinian Christians are actively promoting an anti-Israel narrative built on a re-definition of the gospel. Increasingly in the West, Christianity is embracing that narrative. The new church struggle is the challenge of saying yes to God by saying no to Islamic dhimmitude.
Many evangelical Christians, probably most, are avid supporters of the Jewish State. But not all of them. There is a growing number of megachurch pastors and opinion shapers - like singing artists, professors and publishers - who are adopting and promoting an anti-Israel "Christian" narrative. It is a movement that is aimed at millennials with growing success. Why? Jim Fletcher explains.
