Pastor Greg Boyd Explains Pro-Israel Church Scripture Twisting

Pastor Greg Boyd gives an Inspiring 46 minute message explaining Christian Zionism. Pastor Boyd says, “Many Christians are obstructing peace in the Middle East by misinterpreting what the Bible says about the nation of Israel.”  He stated in a recent sermon,”About 80% of evangelicals believe that the nation of Israel is still God’s chosen land. One view, known as ‘Christian Zionism’ is the belief that the nation of Israel is still central to God’s plan – that the Jews are still God’s chosen people, that the land that was given to the nation of Israel by God is still their land by divine right, and, that anyone who tries to take it away from the Jews will incur the wrath of God.  But there are important things at stake here in the ‘twisted scriptures’ used to justify the Christian Zionist position.”  He told his entire congregation, this “can have huge ramifications for how we think about God, the Gospel message and Jesus.”  Greg Boyd is Senior Pastor at Woodland Hills Church in St. Paul, MN.  His 46 minute sermon is well worth watching. -Tom Compton.
