If your life is not in jeopardy for what you believe, you’re probably on the wrong side!
If you don’t believe Genesis 1-11, how can you possibly believe John 3:16?

It is what you actually believe that determines how you walk out your faith, “but avoid stupid controversies, genealogies, quarrels and fights about the Torah; because they are worthless and futile.” (Titus 3:9)

Israel In Conflict

Since long before declaring the independent State of Israel in May, 1948, the tiny nation of Israel has been continually locked in an ongoing battle against virtually every nation on earth (including, except for one notable presidency, the United States)for her very existence. Not even the United States of America, supposedly a “Christian” nation loyal to the God of Israel, will take a stand to unequivocally support Israel in her struggle. HaShem will most assuredly hold this nation accountable for our lack of support for the “Apple of God’s Eye.” (Zech. 2:8)
