Over 40,000,000 American Christians are influenced by what we call, “Angry Evangelicalism,” better known as Christian Zionism. Christian Zionists like John Hagee and Benny Hinn wear a mantle of righteousness but often ignore the teachings of Jesus and invoke their will in the name of Jesus, ignoring declarations of Christ like…”Blessed are the Peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God, ” “Love your neighbor as yourself” and, even “Love your enemy.”
No wonder so many people dislike and loathe Christians. This 4 minute video provides a snapshot of the problem and illustrates one way to challenge those Christians who, for example, fervently believe that the modern state of Israel is a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy and are even willing to go to war against a country like Iran to protect Israel.
Our question to any person calling himself a follower of Christ is: “Who Would Jesus Bomb?” Be sure to visit the WHTT website: http://whtt.org and podcast site for thought provoking programs: http://whtt.podbean.com/ Just to prove to you that things have not changed much in over a hundred years, watch the video production of Mark Twain’s “War Prayer” at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVYIRbmxHpc
