GOP Candidate: No Peace In Israel Until Jews Convert To Christianity


November 2, 2018 By Aiden Pink

A Republican congressional candidate in a competitive race in North Carolina said in a sermon that there would be no peace in Israel unless Jews and Muslims converted to Christianity, CNN reported Friday.

Mark Harris, who served as a Baptist pastor in Charlotte until resigning last year to run for office, recounted in 2011 his visit to the Holy Land.

“You cannot be in that land, as powerful and as moving as it is, without realizing the incredible tension that is constantly in that land between the Palestinians and the Jews,” Harris said. “There will never be peace in Jerusalem until the day comes that every knee shall bow, every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.”

Harris went on to say that no Jewish or Muslim resident of Jerusalem would find peace unless they accepted Jesus Christ.

1. Freedom of Religion Also Means Freedom From Religion

The zealots never take a day off.

3. These kinds of idiots are a main reason I gave up on church

They wouldn't know true peace if it stepped up and introduce itself to them.

5. Hey Israel...

Still happy you got in bed with the GOP to move them embassy and crush the possibility of a Palestinian state? This is the piper you are going to have to pay. The radical right wing terrorists will eventually fulfill their ultimate goal of wiping out Muslims AND Jews, and you will be left regretting having not given the Palestinians a state when you had the chance.

15. the palestinians can negotiate any time they want

They prefer not to.

Your dark view of xtians is really disturbing, how do you suppose they will manage to kill all the Israeli jews?

16. If we Blue wave them. They've stacked the

deck against us with voter suppression,, gerrymandering, the electoral college and Senate representation inequities, collusion with foreign enemies and oligarchs domestic and foreign, Citizens United, and now a stacked SCOTUS — not to mention corporate, oligarch leaning media — all in God’s name.

Sorry to be pessimistic but .... if we don’t make a huge dent on Tuesday, we are another step closer to an active American Taliban. That leaves us what? Armed resistance? Civil War? State/regional secessions?

in many Protestant denominations. He will probably gain votes from this.

18. actually, it isn't

Jewish control of Israel and Jerusalem is a key part of Christian eschatology see:

http://christinprophecy.org/articles/the-jews-in-end-time-bible-prophecy/

This idiot just doesn't understand Christian end times theology very well, or maybe he's just a bigot.

20. But he wasn't talking about control of Israel.

He said, “There will never be peace in Jerusalem until the day comes that every knee shall bow, every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.”

So, when does peace come to Jerusalem? At your link, it says: We will then return with the Lord to this earth (Revelation 19:14), and we will reign with Him for a thousand years (Revelation 20:1-6). During that glorious reign, we will see the earth flooded with peace, righteousness and justice, as the waters cover the seas. (Isaiah 11:1-9)

Isn't that peace supposed to happen after every knee bows and every tongue confesses that Jesus Christ is Lord? Just like Mr. Harris said.

17. Nothing new here. Heard it 40 years ago in baptist church

Why do you think evangelicals support Israel? Because on a personal basis most I know are at least somewhat anti-Semitic.

There warped prophecy tells them that Jews in Israel must convert before Jeeeesus comes back and send everyone but them to hell.
