The Evengelicals and the Jews
January 21st, 2006
Mark Oppneheimer has written a great piece talking about the various positions Evangelicals take regarding their Jewish brethren. Very interesting and worth the read.
To me the most interesting part of the piece was the opening discussion about Pat Robertsons recent comments regarding Ariel Sharon. As Mark points out Robertson is one of the many religious right leaders who is famously friendly towards Israel. Robertsons seemingly contradictory actions are quite revealing, and a good crash course on the Christian Zionism that is so rampant among Evangelicals, particularly premillenial dispensationalists.
