Jesus Saves . . . Israel's Land

Evangelicals Pray for Middle East Piece

On a recent trip through the Bible Belt to whip up interest among evangelicals for coming to Israel, tourism minister Benyamin Elon won enthusiastic endorsement from a coalition of 1,700 churches called the Jerusalem Prayer Team. "Bible-believing Christians believe all that land belongs to Israel," declared Ed McAteer, co-founder years ago of Moral Majority and the founder of the Religious Roundtable, an umbrella organization of evangelical groups. "It is a fatal, fatal mistake that George Bush is making," he says about the Middle East road map plan. "He is probably the most powerful man in the world, but he ain't more powerful than God. And God gave them that land. Every grain of sand on that piece of property belongs to the Jews because God gave it to [them]."
