Rallies all over the United States and around the world are taking place to object to the announcement by President Donald Trump that the US embassy in Israel would be moved to Jerusalem. The Palestinians and the international community have considered East Jerusalem to be the capital of Palestine. The move by Trump, should be of no surprise to any sincere observer because the United States has never been an honest peace broker to the Israel/Palestine conflict. Members of We Hold These Truths joined with over 100 Palestinian supporters in Tempe, Arizona to protest the action by President Trump. This is video is a two minute overview of the rally.
More Christian theologians are waking up to the false promises of Christian Zionist theology. Dr. Rob Dalrymple, in his book, "These Brothers of Mine: A Theology of Land & Family & A Response to Christian Zionism," does an excellent job to biblically challenge the theology of Christian Zionism. We gave a copy of Dr. Dalrymple's book to the president of western seminary. Here's what he had to say: "I had the time to read These Brothers of Mine over the weekend and found it a wonderful book. I so appreciated the spirit in which Rob wrote the book. I cannot say that there was anything in the book that I would not embrace! I am passing this book on to another one of our professors to get his take on it, but I believe this is an area of teaching we need to be addressing in the church." In this informative, 52 minute interview with Dr. Dalrypmple, we delve into the theology of Christian Zionism. We also recommend this message by Dr. Dalrymple: "What Does Israel Mean To You?" Also, Dr. Dalrymple has just written a new book, "Follow the Lamb: A Guide to Reading, Understanding, and Applying the Book of Revelation."
