JNS.org – The Eagles Wings Evangelical Christian Organization, an international group training Evangelical leaders, brought a 24-member pastor delegation to Israel this week. The delegates visited Christian and Jewish holy sites, and met with several Israeli dignitaries, including Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat, Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan, and members of the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus.

“We understand our heritage. We believe that we have become part of a covenant that was made with Abraham,” said a member of the delegation, Pastor Rusty Nelson, according to the Jerusalem Post. “We come prayerfully, in a unified embrace that says we support you in the land that God has given you; we support you in the covenant that God has made with you.”

Another participant and the leader of a network of churches Pastor Todd Schumacher said, “We stand unconditionally with Israel, recognizing it as the root of our faith and what we believe, and that without it, where would we be?”

“It’s difficult to disconnect from the womb that gave birth to you. We are the result of Judaism; we’re grafted in, and no matter what, we’re all connected,” added a third participant, Pastor Dwayne Hardin.

    These pastors are brave to be making such a statement, but their also representing a strong percentage of evangelical Christians who still stand with Israel.

    Don’t take their profession lightly. What they are saying are the core principles of Christianity. Israel has been granitized in the bone marrow of true Christians. That is why our current president has to destroy America. Israel, Christianity, guns and bibles are so interwoven within the foundational fabric of the U.S…. At some point we must be destroyed by the lunatic liberal element, ironically when they accomplish this task they will have eroded the foundation they stand on and the radical elements of the rest of the world will move in and start beheading anything that move and looks like lady gaga or Hillary, they will hake no distinction, as far as the Islamic religious belief goes we are all decadent and must be eradicated. So hold on to your dress Jenner it is going to be a rough ride.

    The Islamist State Department, and Euro-left are targeting these people more than all other Christians nowadays. This is like during the hundreds of Inquisitions where they would not only torture Jews, but also Christians who have been “Judaized” meaning like alll antisemitism a lie and a trick, do not think Jews the inventors of Christianity should be obsessed upon, framed, lied about then stolen from completely. Just the evil part of Christianity has all given up Christianity and has joined the atheist sometime “christian” new fake globalist UN left.

    As the French “christian” founders of Socialism made clear, today the state replaces religion that is Christianity, today the globalized and colonizing combined religion left has replaced Christianity. Neo-Socialism.
