Fate of Christianity ?
Reader comment on: The UN Declares War on Judeo-Christian Civilization

I am an ardent supporter of Israel the nation, however, I was perplexed by the statement that the fate of Christianity is tied to Israel. While they are indeed historically and biblically connected, that statement needs serious qualification.
Christianity is tied to faith in Christ and Him alone, not to any nation or people group. Christianity is offered to all people of the earth if they will believe that Jesus is the son of God and shed his blood, died and rose again that all who believe might have eternal life through Jesus Christ. The nation of Israel has no effect on that truth what so ever, nor does the US or any other nation.
I appreciate your service and consider your work to be above par, however, statements like the one I am pointing out, are damaging and argumentative. Perhaps I misunderstand your meaning, however, you should again qualify such a statement with explanation.
"Christianity" is of Christ and those who follow him, period. It is not a political tool, but does however provide the true moral standard for all civilized nations. How that effects governments is dependent on the people of each nation and how Christianity influences political/social movement.
In brief, that last statement tells us exactly the difference between America many decades ago and that of today. Each nation decides their own fate before God according to their own dispositions and moral failures. If America fails, it's on us.
