I am an American Christian. Pat Robertson, John Hagee, Tim LaHaye, and other "Christian Zionists" of their ilk do not speak for me. Their message does not honor Christ, it does not serve His Kingdom, and therefore their message is not Christian. The term "Christian Zionist" is in fact an oxymoron.
Zionism is racism. Zionism is at enmity with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Zionism is anti-Christ. The fact that it is propagated in the name of Christianity makes it an even graver evil, if that were possible.
I pray for the Palestinian people. I pray for an end to the occupation. And I pray that more Christians in this country will wake up to see the truth about the evils of Zionism, and will join the growing number of us who are saying, "not in our name."
I pray for all Christians, that through the knowledge of God's mercy and truth we will experience the everlasting peace which is already ours in the New Jerusalem. Only then will we be able to reflect the true character of Christ's kingdom to the world.
I have been married to my loving husband Keith for 29 years. We have three beautiful and brilliant children, ages 28, 25 and 23. Nothing cheers my heart more than having them all at home, yet nothing is more satisfying to my mind than watching them grow from afar. My personal passion is theology: the knowledge and experience of the Truth and Mercy found in the person and work of Jesus Christ, and displayed in the lives and communion of His people. My husband and I love to travel, and because our children are often out and about in the world, we get lots of opportunities to see it! And we also love to fill our home with friends who love us, and love our wine collection.
