Southern Baptists Pass Pro-Israel Resolution

While some denominations have stepped away from the biblical mandate to support Israel, we are always heartened when groups of Christians continue to stand for the Jewish state. JNS reports that the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) has done just that, both reaffirming their support of Israel and continuing to condemn the anti-Israel BDS movement:

The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) adopted a resolution reaffirming the church’s support and prayers for Israel as well as condemning the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. 

The resolution declared that the BDS movement “seeks to isolate the nation of Israel economically and socially,” while also expressing concern about the “ongoing anti-Israel activities in this country within certain university campuses, academic and professional associations, and popular culture.”

“We support the right of Israel to exist as a sovereign state and reject any activities that attack that right by promoting economic, cultural, and academic boycotts against Israel,” the SBC resolution said, adding that “at this critical time when dangerous forces are mounting up against the nation of Israel, we recommit ourselves to pray for God’s peace to rule in Jerusalem and for the salvation of Israel.”
