As the world continues to isolate Israel, American evangelicals are strong supporters of the Jewish state.
Now, some fear that support could be quietly eroding.
“Evangelical Christians have been a reliable source of support for Israel. But in recent years, institutions such as evangelical schools and mission groups are increasingly supporting Palestinian activism,” Mark Tooley, president of the Institute for Religion and Democracy, said.
IRD is taking steps to stop the slide by bringing together a group of theologians and scholars to make the case for supporting Israel.
Tooley says it will take stronger arguments than “the Bible says” to convince others that Israel should be defended. He says it will take intellectually substantial explanations.
Earlier Tooley spoke with CBN’s Mark Martin about the subtle shift away from support for Israel and how to turn it around. Click play to watch the interview.
