    In a recent poll, it was determined that approximately 25% of Christians think that it is a Christian obligation to help and support the State of Israel. Unfortunately, such a warped view of Christian responsibility, flies in the face of the New Covenant established by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, at His Last Supper. Most of the people who die in a war, including combatants, are innocent in the eyes of God. Therefore, no war is ever blessed by God. War is the providence of Satan alone and for a Christian to believe otherwise makes an idiot of himself and an idiot of God.

    I suppose asking if God is an Idiot is offensive to some people. However, sometimes a shocking question needs to be asked to get someone’s attention. Why I want to do this is to find out how is it possible for any follower of Christ to think that, as a Christian, they have an obligation to help and support the State of Israel. This notion, from perspective tells me that such a person has no idea what it means to be Christian or what is required of us as being one.

    The first requisite for a Christian is to believe that Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior. Beyond this, the two most important requirements of Christianity are that we love God with every fiber of our being and that we love others as we do ourselves. Believing these things, how is it possible for a Christian to condone warring against innocent people just so Jews can return to living in a place which God had purposely taken from them many years ago. It does not make any sense at all and from my perspective, you have to really ignorant of your professed religion to believe such a thing.

    I am sure there are many readers out there who believe we should be fighting or helping to fight Israel’s battles. Won’t you share with us why you believe this is a requisite for Christians? Surly, you have must have a good reason for forsaking your God.

    I'm a Bavarian. Bavarians are in most cases Catholics ... and Protestants .. and we have also orthodox Christians here - most of them came from Russia, the Ukraine and Greece. Once the nobles of Europe sent one of our nobles to Greece to become the king of Greece. One of his sister translated the books of Shakespeare into the greek language and he brewed beer in Greece - so they threw him out, because they liked to drink his beer on their own. I don't know what they did with Shakespeare but as far as I heard Greece still brews bavarian beer.

    God, after making billions and billions of humans still can't get it right and continues to make deformed babies. So probably not the sharpest shoe in the closet.
