After tense vote The Presbyterian Church (USA) passes BDS. US Jews claims Church ‘driven by hatred of Israel.
The Presbyterian Church (USA) on Friday became the most prominent religious group in the United States to endorse divestment as a protest against Israeli policies toward Palestinians, voting to sell church stock in three companies whose products Israel uses in the occupied territories.
The top Presbyterian legislative body has been considering divestment for a decade. Representatives of the Presbyterian socially responsible investment arm told the national meeting in Detroit that their efforts to lobby the three companies for change had failed.
The General Assembly voted by a razor-thin margin – 310-303 – to sell stock in Caterpillar, Hewlett-Packard and Motorola Solutions. Two years ago, the General Assembly rejected a similar divestment proposal by two votes.
The American Jewish Committee, a policy and advocacy group based in New York, said the vote was “driven by hatred of Israel.” But Heath Rada, moderator for the church meeting, said immediately after the vote that “in no way is this a reflection of our lack of love for our Jewish brothers and sisters.”
Rabbi Rick Jacobs, head of the liberal Union for Reform Judaism, which is the largest branch of American Judaism, addressed the delegates twice, urging them to vote against divestment.
Any Church, that has disconnected it self from Judaism, is a dead Church, and on its way to destruction.
To boycott Israel, is like pulling your finger right in to the apple of the eye of God of Israel.
If the Jews are no longer the chosen people of God, neither are the pagans who are supposed to have been grafted into the commonwealth of Israel, through the death and resurrection of the Messiah.
For thus says the Lord of hosts: “He sent Me after glory, to the nations which plunder you; for he who touches you touches the apple of His eye.
If you accept that the Jews are the chosen people of God, you are a part of the new enlarged Israel of God. The wild branches, that has been grafted in, will never harm or cut of the natural branches.
For I tell you that Christ has become a servant of the Jews on behalf of God’s truth, so that the promises made to the patriarchs might be confirmed and, moreover, that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy. As it is written:
‘Therefore I will praise you among the Gentiles. I will sing the praises of your name.’
Repent or perish.

Dear Ivan who are the ones poised to destroy western civilisation and Christianity?It is non other than them mohamedians.Why can’t they realise the impending disaster that is about to engulf them? One can not appease the devil who is out to destroy. Woe to thier children.
Those who do this, are sowing the seeds of their own destruction. Their actions will not go unpunished, G-d is not mocked!
Yes they think to join the Arabs in sexual orgies with 71virgins
It is astounding to me that so-called “Christians” cannot see that they are turning their backs on Israel in what is coming to be her most desperate hour of need. The Palestinians goad and attack Israel and no one mentions THAT! And then when Israel retaliates against her enemies, these “Christian” hypocrites cry big crocodile tears and enact their feeble reprisals! Arghh!
They do this because; “they love not the truth but take pleasure in unrighteousness.” There is absolutely no way that they do this out of ignorance.
Shalom, and love in Jesus.
The Presbyterian’s outright deny Biblical truth. The mainlain Church is intoxicated with Roman Catholicism. The very idea that God is finished with Israel, and that the restoration of Israel is a political game.
In this way, we are told, we can be a part of the political game. Absolutely no problem if we boycott the state of Israel.
This morning I was watching Religion and Ethics. The Presbyterian Church has also voted to endorse and to perform homosexual weddings.
Yesterday I was reading an article from National Report which claims that a gay black football player, whose last name is Sam, is planning to marry his long term gay Italian boy friend, turned Muslim, in a White House Muslim wedding ceremony officiated by Obama.
I briefly tried to confirm this report, with no success. I’ll try again later.
I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you. This is a promise YHWH gave Abraham. Therefore YHWH’s curse will fall upon the American Presbytyrean Church.
I am always hesitant to resort to name calling, but if a person or organization is really being foolish…
Buy a pair of source sandals (unbelievably excellent quality), or a pair of IDF pants (very comfortable) or something else from Israel. Not all of their stuff is shoddy tourist tat.
In the Holocaust G-d gave the Chosen People a good spanking for killing his Son.
Yes, people should stop “waiting” on a future return of Christ. His presence arrived almost two thousand years ago when he came in judgment upon the city of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. These were the days of vengeance upon Jerusalem for persecuting and murdering the Son of God, the apostles and saints. Matt. 23:34-37; Luke 21:20-22, 32.
