Chris Matthews: 'Crazy' Evangelicals Don't Understand Situation in Israel

A view of Jerusalem’s Old City. The

A new survey indicates that most American Evangelicals still voice strong support for Israel but Millennials in the church do not share that enthusiasm.

He said support for Israel among Evangelicals comes from their "crazy ideas about Israel".

Around 77 percent of surveyed Evangelicals 65 years and older said they support the existence, security, and prosperity of Israel.

"For the most part, younger evangelicals are indifferent about Israel", said Scott McConnell, executive director of LifeWay Research, in a statement. Bock is also a board member for Chosen People Ministries, which co-sponsored the LifeWay survey. The headline result is an eye-opener for those who agree with the angry response by liberal US Jews to Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely's admonition that American Jews who don't send children to the army "don't understand Israel".

"Don't think this isn't related to Alabama next week".

Only 31% said they would oppose it. "Both Jews and Christians around the world have prayed for this day, which rights a historic wrong by affirming to the world that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish people".

The survey also found that approximately 76 percent of respondents said Christians should support the right of the Jewish people to live in the sovereign State of Israel.

Added Chi: "On behalf of thousands of Christians across Seoul and all of South Korea, I commend the USA administration's long-overdue recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital". They are also the least likely group measured to view Israel positively.

Only 34 percent of young Evangelicals said unequivocally that the creation of Israel was just, while a full 47 percent said they are not sure. Eighty percent say God promised the land of Israel "to Abraham and his descendants for all time".

Most Evangelicals surveyed said that the Bible shaped the way the see Israel.

"Overall support of evangelicals for Israel will drop significantly in the next decade if the younger generation is not educated to change their views", according to the survey, which was conducted at the request of pro-Israel evangelical leaders.
