Are you a Christian Zionist?
I was under the impression that most American Protestant Christians were Zionists. However, lately some comments made have caused me to question whether I was correct in making this assumption.
So I present the following question; Are you a Zionist?
I qualify the answers below.
-Yes, I am a Christian Zionist because God commands me to be one. Genesis 12:3 "I will bless those who bless you..." Psalms 122:6 "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love you..." or perhaps some other verse you'd like to include?
-Yes, I am a Zionist. God does not specifically command that I be one, but it is the moral/ethical thing to do. Antisemitism is wrong/Israel is a good ally/some other reason you would like to include?
-I am not a Zionist. Israel is just like any other country.
-I am not a Zionist. Israel is wrong/Palestinian land is stolen/Jews not really the Jews (yes, someone here said this to me)/some other reason you might want to share?
I am not looking for debate in this thread. There is no "right" or "wrong" answer. I just want to know what people's honest opinion is on the subject.
Also please note if you agree with "1" and "2", "1" should be the vote since God's specific command takes precedence.
In the interest of disclosure I am voting "1".
Hear the word of the Lord, O nations, and declare it on the islands from afar, and say, "He Who scattered Israel will gather them together and watch them as a shepherd his flock."
