Promised Land, Palestine and the Bible

"Lord God, Adonai, Allah, HaShem, O Most Holy, give us the wisdom to see your will and not our interests. Help us to see in every person our equal, our brother, so that we may discover that you are the Almighty God for everyone of us equally and not the God of some people or nation, promissing lands to some and destruction to others. God, Lord, Adonai, O Most Holy, your are the God equally to everyone, loves everyone the same way, and everyone has to stand equally in front of you for judgement, we adore you as our ONE GOD, ALLAH, YAHWEH Adonai." Al-Bushra

We consider ourselves no longer a nation, but a religious community, and therefore expect neither a return to Palestine, nor a sacrificial worship under the sons of Aaron, nor the restoration of any of the laws concerning the Jewish state. (The Pittsburgh Platform, 1885, the classic statement of the protestant or Reform Judaism (as it is known in the United States)

The people of God as described in the New Testament are not to be identified with any existing or future political state. The New Testament recognizes the importance of ordered societies and hence of political states, but never does it confuse the kingdom of God or the church with a nation or race of people. (Frank Stag)

"Peace cannot be built on confiscated land" Having endured a prolonged Crucifixion, the Palestinians await the dawn of Resurrection. Canon Naim Ateek, Sabeel, Palestinian Theology of Liberation

  • The Roots of Christian Zionism within Evangelicalism ,Christian Zionism has, in general terms, arisen from within Evangelicalism, and Fundamentalism in particular. Within that narrower circle, Christian Zionism is invariably associated with, although not exclusively, a dispensational reading of Biblical history and a premillennial eschatology.
