Perhaps you won’t see the same degree of tragedy in this statement that I did…but if you have a desire to see all come to Christ, this should at least give you pause.
In a recent article posted at Charisma concerning John Hagee (who, the article claimed was “arguably the face of Christian Zionism today”) and his work through CUFI (Christians United for Israel), was a quote made by former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer.
Fleischer, who serves on the Republican Jewish Coalition board and is a close friend of Hagee, recently served as master of ceremonies at a dinner given to honor John Hagee;
“Before CUFI, there was nothing to give American evangelicals a national voice for Israel,” Hagee told JNS.org in an exclusive sit-down interview on the eve of a major dinner with Jewish leaders in his honor on Nov. 7 in New York.
When questioned by a representative from JNS news service about the lingering skepticism some Jews still have concerning John Hagee and his organization, Ari Fleischer (Quote; who has worked in the south for many years for and with evangelical Christians) responded with,
“All the years I’ve spent with evangelicals, I never once had anybody trying to convince me of anything or make me think differently about my beliefs.”
Friends, this is the legacy of Christian Zionism. And sadly, that of many American Evangelicals.
If Ari Fleischer leaves this world in the same spiritual state of unbelief he is in now, is that what he’ll say when it’s found his name is not recorded in The Book of Life….”I was in their presence for years, BUT I never ONCE had any one of them present Jesus and the Gospel to me…or attempt to convince me?”
If so, what a tragedy….
