Challenging American Christians at Christ At The Checkpoint-USA
Sadly, American, evangelical Christians mostly get one side of the Israeli/Palestine conflict narrative. And, that is the "zionised" Christian version that claims that modern Israel is the fulfillment of biblical prophecy, and, that only modern Jews have a right to live in Israel. Christ At The Checkpoint-USA held their first conference in the US in Oklahoma City to tell the Palestinian Christian side of the story. Palestinian Christians are the "living stones," of the Holy Land, and, for the most part, are ignored by American Christian pilgrims visiting the "dead stone" sites in the Holy Land. We Hold These Truths had a booth at the conference and came away very encouraged by the gathering. In this 34 min., fascinating and thought provoking podcast, members of WHTT discuss the CATC-USA conference and challenge their fellow Christians to tell the other side of the story to anyone who will listen. Videos of the speakers at the conference can be viewed here. Also, we recommend watching Palestinian Pastor Alex Awad's excellent video presentation: "Palestinian Christians in the Shadow of Christian Zionism."
