God Still Loves the Jews - His Chosen People

Israel is the end-times battleground. The outward clash of religion, politics and culture represents only a fraction of the raging war over the land in the heavenlies. Read Arab Islamic Attitudes toward Jews and Zionism to learn about the roots of this conflict. Also, the Jews are still God's chosen people. See the weblog Jacob, Joseph and Pharaoh for insight into the relationship of the Church with the Jewish people and to find out how you can pray for them. Will they come to know the Messiah? A Jewish believer testifies of his commitment to Christ (Jewish Roots and the Fruits of Faith).

Do you remember the story of the Israelite tribes who built an altar on the border to honour God (see Joshua 22:10-11)? The other tribes accused them of building an altar to an idol. The story Mongolian Rocks reads like a page out of history to illustrate just what these altars to idols might have looked like.

And finally, why do so many commentators disparage U.S. President George W. Bush as a dangerous Christian fanatic? See Critics Wrong to Paint Bush as Religious Fanatic.
