Reply To: Why is it important for Christians to keep the sad history of Christian antisemitism in mind when responding to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the present?

Harvest, I very much agree with your thoughts. It’s not only important from an international relations/political point of view to understand the tragic influence Christians had in the Israel-Palestinian conflict, but from a theological and spiritual one as well. The Christian church in Europe discussed during this course were practicing theology without the Holy Spirit within them. If we do not have the Holy Spirit in us and giving us the ability to have soft hearts toward all of God’s people, the teachings of Christ’s gospel are meaningless to us. As the next generation of leaders in the world and in Christ’s Church, it is paramount that we remember this and do our best not to repeat history.
