Can a Christian hate Israel?

There are people who claim they are ‘Christians’ while they denounce Israel.  They  condemn them as the sole transgressor for their ‘oppression’ of the Palestinians.   Aspects to remember: 

  • The Jesus Christ we as Christians confess, is a Jew,  

‘Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, descended from David.  This is my Gospel.’  2 Timothy 2:8

  • What is one of the definitions of a ‘Christian?’  

‘The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.’  Romans 8:16

  • The Spirit will never lead Jesus’ people to curse His ‘brothers,’ the Jews, 

‘I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse.’  Genesis 12:3a

The ‘true’ Christian supports the Jews who live in the land Israel.

As you can see in the photo, there are two of us. We live and work together 24/7, studying and enjoying our grandchildren. Our passion is to know and understand what will happen after death. Is there a way to provide for and invest in that?

  1. Recently I was introduced to a new acronym ‘RINO’ by Donald Trump, it means ‘Republican In Name Only’. This got me thinking about all those calling themselves Christian who were not really, yet. I blame this mostly on those teachers who teach being a Christian is all about what I get out of being a Christian such as being blessed, prosperity, happyness, heaven etc. etc. which are true, but only side benefits. This motivation has been and still is to grow a congregation.
    The message of Jesus was “follow me” foxes have holes and birds have nests etc. and of course living sacrificed lives for others, praying for those who persecute you, loving your enemy, casting out demons, praying for the sick, dying to self, cleansing our thought processes from hatered and lust, and so forth and so on. Being a Christian is not about what you can get, but from what you become, a Christ.
    So now I have a new acronym for these who call themselves Christian but hate the Jews “CINO” Christian In Name Only.
