Paul Wilkinson, a British Christian Zionist, recently included a chapter in his book For Zion’s Sake about a movement that is the polar opposite of Christian Zionism he termed "Christian Palestinianism." He defines it as "a relatively new, largely intellectual, professedly Christian, anti-Zionist movement [that] has sprung up alongside [Christian Zionism], which I have classified as Christian Palestinianism." ...
The last couple of years the secular community and some in the religious community have woken up to the fact that most of the American Evangelical community is pro Israel. Guess what? They do not like it one bit. There have been a number of articles in the media about the alleged dangers of the Christian support for Israel. A widely noted article appeared in the May 23, 2002 issue of the Wall Street Journal entitled, "How Israel Became a Favorite Cause of Christian Right." For some, this is horrifying...
As one follows the events surrounding Israel today, it appears that the noose is increasingly being tightened around her neck. The Obama administration’s bungling of the Iranian nuclear situation and John Kerry’s forceful approach toward the so-called “peace process” is leaving Israel without many true friends in this world.

However, true reality takes into account the will and plan of God, which means that Israel will not be destroyed as a nation no matter how desperate their situation becomes...

In those essays I took the phrase, “and have nothing” as a reference to the kingdom. “Certainly Christ gained what was intended through His atoning death on the cross as far as paying for the sins of the world,” I wrote...
Christian defender of our biblical faith, Dave Hunt (1926–2013) went home to be with our Lord on April 5, 2013 after a series of various illnesses. I greatly loved and respected Dave as one of the most sincere and genuine believers I have ever personally known. He was foreword thinking on many issues and was on more than one occasion the first Christian to spot a trend developing within Evangelicalism. Dave Hunt will be greatly missed by so many of us in the days ahead...
