Who Said That?

"I am convinced in my heart and in my mind that if the United States fails to stand with Israel, that is the end of the United States . . . [W]e have to show that we are inextricably entwined, that as a nation we have been blessed because of our relationship with Israel, and if we reject Israel, then there is a curse that comes into play. . . .  We believe very strongly the verse from Genesis [Genesis 12:3], we believe very strongly that nations also receive blessings as they bless Israel. It is a strong and beautiful principle."

Hal Lindsey

Could be a variety, like: Tim LaHaye, Dave Hunt, Hagee, Van Impe, or a whole morasse of classic dispensational thinkers (not even as extreme as the ones I mentioned here). I'll stick with Lindsey for my guess though.

This may be crazy, but it sounds like something Obama might have said trying to garner the Jewish vote.

Easy. That would be the illustriously nutty Republican senator from Minnesota, Michele Bachmann.
February 22, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterClay Smith
Oh my goodness, where to start! This could be any number of dispensational neo-con evangelicals.

I'm going to guess Pat Robertson

It sounds like John Hagee to me.

Indeed, it could have been any number of dispensational writers but I l think John Hagee said this particular quote. cats rule.
February 22, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAlan Platt
Of those I've seen, John "Jesus didn't come to be the Messiah of Israel" Hagee is the most likely.

After that Hal Lindsay and Pat Robertson, then any number of lesser known figures. It's common coin in dispensational circles.

I'll add, that I've come to view that opinion as more than wrong-headed. It's positively dangerous. I've heard a war scenario batted about in dispensational circles within the last few years. Israel attacks Iran over the nuke thing, Israel wins, and casualties are grossly disproportionate. A hundred thousand vs. millions.

If that scenario comes to pass, the dispensational amen chorus will be over on the side, cheering loudly. The world sees the church as a bunch of bloodthirsty loons, well worth suppressing. The dispensationalists become, ironically, the cause of the"camp of the saints being surrounded".

It sounds like something I have heard John MacArthur say.
