Most American Christians say the Bible doesn’t influence their views on Israel

The Christian Post Reports: "American Christians have been following the war between Israel and Hamas, and two-thirds of those who attend church most often say their church has prayed for peace in Israel," said Lifeway Research Executive Director Scott McConnell in a statement. "While a majority of American Christians support military action by Israel now, a much larger group believe lasting peace must come by mutual agreement of Palestinians and Israelis."


Many forget, or just do not beleive, that Israel is the apple of God’s eye.

For the Lord of armies says this: “After glory He has sent me against the nations that plunder you, for the one who touches you, touches the apple of His eye. Zachariah 2:8

We must take note that Barna Research shows that only 4% of Americans have a Biblical Worldview and just 37% of Pastors have a Biblical Worldview. The results are hellish.

Only about a quarter of American Christians say the Bible influences their views on Israel as the Israel-Hamas war continues after the Oct. 7 attack on civilians in southern Israel killed over 1,200 and prompted an Israeli military offensive in Gaza.

Lifeway Research, in collaboration with The Philos Project, conducted a survey asking 1,252 American Christians for their views on the Israel-Hamas war. The poll, conducted between Nov. 14 and 21 and released Dec. 14, has a margin of error of +/-2.9 percentage points.

Respondents were asked about what has “influenced” their views about Israel and were given a list of responses that they could select all that apply. About 27% of Christians selected the Bible, suggesting that among 73% of respondents, the Bible does not inform their views of Israel. More Here

Got Questions states: Christians should definitely support the nation of Israel. We must remember that Israel, the nation, is very special to God. We read in Deuteronomy 7:6-8 these words: “For you are a people holy to the LORD your God. The LORD your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his people, his treasured possession. The LORD did not set his affection on you and choose you because you were more numerous than other peoples, for you were the fewest of all peoples. But it was because the LORD loved you and kept the oath he swore to your forefathers that he brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you from the land of slavery, from the power of Pharaoh king of Egypt.” More Here

FGGAM News Director Chuck Akeley reports: Pray! Pray for the end of Russian hostilities.  Pray for God’s healing of the lands of Russia and Ukraine. When citizens of a free country clearly blessed of God choose to seek the wisdom of the world, political ideologies, and self-seeking emotionality as the answer to all of life’s issues before seeking the Lord – treating God as “the option of last resort” – then trouble is around the corner or already upon us.
