Christians Show Their Support for Israel

Posted by thelamp on October 4, 2006

Last month, about 35,000 Christians gathered across from the United Nations building in New York to protest against Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Members of Christians United for Israel were among them.

They went to let the world know that Jesus’ followers will not permit anti-Semitic tyrants to preach their hate without a challenge. CUFI members should be commended for speaking in support of Israel. They countered the Iranian president’s visit with rousing speeches of Christian solidarity. Their message needed to be heard, and organizers did a masterful job assembling so many people so quickly.

More than once, Pastor Parsley has shared the biblical perspective: Israel’s enemies are God’s enemies.

CUFI has asked the Center for Moral Clarity to invite members to the Feast of Tabernacles Celebration at Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas, Oct. 20-22. Festivities begin Friday, Oct. 20, with the opening of a marketplace featuring 70 vendors presenting products from Israel.

CUFI will present its first Middle East briefing. The slate of speakers includes a Lebanese Christian whose family suffered horrible atrocities at the hand of Islamic terrorists. The last night of the celebration will honor the Jewish community and nation of Israel for their contribution to Christianity.

There’s a registration fee of $25 for the briefing, but admission to all other events is free. For more information, visit or call (210) 477-4714.
