I figured I'd go ahead an open a can of worms with a good ol' industry favorite topic. Israel.
I was raised to believe, and still do, that the physical, national, Israel of today (post 1947) has nothing to do with the Israel of God's covenanents in the OT and NT.
I don't know chapter/verse but this belief is based off of several passages in Romans 9-11. Whole book of Hebrews. Several statements that Christ made himself, and historical evidence.
My Father-in-law believes that if, hypothetically, the US was to go to war with Israel, and no other nation played a role of any kind, that Israel would win because God would... well, ya know, "Smite" us.
However, when you look at all of the times that God allowed israel to be overrun and such, I don't even understand from any perspective why someone would actually believe that.
Follow-up: Should we allow a few Christian's hermanuetics to influance our Countries foreign policy concerning Israel?
