Former liberal President, and liberal Christian, Jimmy Carter, is reported to have said in view of supporting the nation of Israel: "To care for Israel is completely stupid and a ridiculous premise on which to base foreign policy and on which to base support for Israel."

Jerry Falwell said: "God has blessed America because America has blessed the Jews. If this nation wants her fields to remain white with grain, her scientific achievements to remain notable and her freedom to remain intact, America must continue to stand with Israel."

Quoting from Stephen Spector's recent book Evangelicals and Israel: The Story of American Christian Zionism: "Biblical prophecy and dispensational expectation certainly form one basis for Christian Zionists' support of Israel. The chief motivation for Christian Zionists is God's promise to Abraham in Genesis 12:3: 'I will bless those who bless you and curse him who curses you.' That blessing became a biblical imperative and an essential element of dispensationalism in the 1909 edition of Scofield's Reference Bible."

This is correct! And thank God for Scofield's great biblical and spiritual insights! All believers who look for the return of Christ to reign on the throne of David in Jerusalem are Christian Zionists and proud of it! – Dr. Mal Couch
