I’m not a politician or Biblical scholar, but as a Christian, I’ve tried to read and study the Bible. Over the last 20 years I’ve read the Bible through 5 times using study guides, books, and study Bibles. It takes me about 4-5 years to read it through once using this method.
My first bucket list item after I retired from coaching was to visit Israel, which I did with my wife and parents for 11 days. It doesn’t take you long to learn the importance of Jerusalem to the nation of Israel and the Jewish people. This is important to Christians because Jesus was a Jew and most of the Bible was written by Jews. And it says in John 4:22, “for salvation is of the Jews”. I believe that the United States relationship with Israel is important for many reasons, but one of my main reasons is what God told Abram in Genesis 12: 3. “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse, and all peoples on earth will be blessed by you”.
Our last three Presidents, who all professed to be Christians, acknowledged that Jerusalem was the capital of Israel. President Clinton and Bush both said our embassy should be moved and did not follow through. President Obama only admitted that Jerusalem was the capital of Israel, and never committed to moving our embassy. President Trump said it …. and last week committed to moving our embassy to Jerusalem.
You can see why evangelical Christians continue to support this President. Most Christians who study the Bible know we aren’t perfect and don’t hold anyone to that standard, only Jesus has ever attained perfection. While all of us do things that disappoint God, every one of us will have to stand before God and explain our actions.
I personally believe President Trump will get Gods approval on this one.
