    This post deserves at least one comment!

    What I find shockingly naive about the fundamentalist pro-Israel ideology is it’s lack of understanding of the entire New Testament. In the reading of it, one could easily (and wrongly) make the Sadducees, Pharisees and later Judaizers the villains. The destruction of the temple and tragedies of AD70 looming in every end times message.

    Where Jesus and Paul being antisemitic? They didn’t seem to be afraid of invoking God’s wrath by questioning and at times condemning Jewish leaders. (Oh, but Israel wasn’t a nation then like it is now…)

    How about the way Jesus took every opportunity to offend the mindset that claimed “WE are the children of Abraham!” Praising Syrians, Centurions, Samaritans so much they tried to throw him off a cliff. “I tell you that out of these stones God can raise up children for Abraham”.

    I’m not saying God is done with Israel (read Romans), but evangelicals have 100% lost the plot of The Kingdom”.

    Terry,

    Very well said.
    I often wonder why American evangelicalism has lost the plot of the kingdom so thoroughly…it actually does keep me up nights.
