The National Council of Churches is made up of 100,000 churches with 45 million members in a variety of denominations. This year they sent out a brochure to member churches and their adherents. The Los Angeles Times wrote, “Before this year is up, nearly 45 million people will get more than a sermon at their churches—they’ll get a brochure titled “Why we should be concerned about Christian Zionism.” The brochure says Christian Zionism “fosters fear and hatred of Muslims and non-Western Christians” and ”can lead to the dehumanization of Israelis and Palestinians.” Its distribution reflects the concerns of Christians who are trying to combat what they call, the growth of Christian Zionism in the U.S. The reformed Church in America is one of the 35 Christian church bodies that make up the National Council of Churches of Christ in the USA, who wrote the brochure and began distributing it this month.
A Christian Zionist is one who believes that God is not finished with Israel and that God still has a purpose for Israel. The National Council of Churches is Anti-Semitic in their approach to Israel and is seeking to discredit Christians who hold to the promises of God concerning Israel. The promises God made to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob are not revoked but yet to be fulfilled.
"And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee. And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God" Genesis 17:7-8. This promise is repeated in scripture many times over. If you don’t believe God and His Word, tear up your Bible and close your church doors, but don’t fight against God and His people!
