Presbyterians nearly escape cursing their own church

By a narrow vote 333 against 331, the Presbyterian Church (USA) decides not to curse Israel.

The multitudes walking on Earth bring a curse on their own head, by simply spreading lies about Israel, harming the Jewish people.

By a margin of 333-331 with two abstentions, the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA), being held in Pittsburgh, rejected a motion to divest from Caterpillar, Hewlett-Packard and Motorola Solutions.

A 2011 church report found that Caterpillar supplies bulldozers for the demolition of Palestinian homes, Motorola provides cell phone technology to West Bank settlements and Hewlett-Packard manages information technology for the Israeli Navy.

The decision to vote on divestment came after the companies allegedly refused the church’s entreaties to change their policies in regard to providing services to Israel.

Several Jewish groups came out against the move, including the left-leaning Americans for Peace Now and J Street.

My comment:

It is sad that many Christians curse them selves in the name of “Jesus”, promoting boycotts against Israel, and believing in the lies of Islam and replacement theology.

It is of course great that 333 Presbyterian leaders in the US voted against cursing the Jewish homeland. But what about the 331 who voted in favor of pulling such curses down on their own heads?

 Jeremiah 31:3
The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness.

 Luke 1:33
and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end.”

Jesus of the Bible is crystal clear, that He is the King of the Jews, and will reign over the house of Jacob forever. He has promised to be their God forever, and do love them with an everlasting love.

After 1948, the restoration of Israel is the best proof that Jesus is alive. In our modern times. In our generation.

Because He promised that He would gather the Jews from all corners of the World, and help them to rebuild the ruins of Zion.  Also all the Jews who do not recognize or accept Him as the Messiah.

How come, 331 Presbyterian leaders in the US roam around spiritual blindfolded, not able to see this?

Stand up for Israel. Go to the local shop today, and buy a double portion of goods produced in the Jewish homeland.

  1. What about the “2” that abstained….?? which didn’t have the back-bone to say yeah or nay?? (By a margin of 333-331 with two abstentions)…they may think they are not ”of” the problem, but The Lord knows exactly where their hearts lie…that in and of itself could of easily been their tests to ”Stand for, Stand with” Israel…I think there is more to this story than meets the ‘eye’….far more!

  2. The General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA) has made the right decision here, but only just. Such is the delicate balnce of things right now all aorund the world and especially in regards to the Holy Land. The geometries are really swirling. We need more connection and trust building right now not less. The model for the Holy Land and region is one of trade and economic co-operation. So boycotting one section of the area may actually backfire on other areas, such is the interconnectedness of things. It is all about perspective. The BDS people see the universe as win/lose so rationalise their boycott campaigns as of helping the Palestinians when this is not the truth.
