Reply To: How can you work to combat antisemitism and supersessionism in your own Christian community?

This is also what I am appreciating about Philos: not pluralistic soteriology, but pluralism in the sense that we all have our own perspective, our own journey, and our own joys and pain, that God willing, leads us to Christ in His timing. The Palestinian issue has always been a tough one for me, it seems to induce a divided allegiance between fellow Christians and support for Israel’s right to exist as a people in their own land. I never understood the Two State solution, which goes to show you what viewing the world through a “might makes right” lens will lead you. Just take what is rightfully yours. However, Israel offering a TSS at least 6 times demonstrates their emulation of Abraham with Lot – dividing the land for the sake of peace. I think God will honor their efforts to pursue peace, while they also still retain the right to protect their community like Abraham did when Lot was kidnapped. Abraham and Lot, Isaac and Ishmael, Jacob and Esau, Joseph and his brothers… all fraught with conflict. But God can use it for good. We can pray for the peace of Jerusalem, and pray that brothers can reconcile. We can be like Aaron, the classic peacemaker. Blessed are they.
