‘WITH GOD ON OUR SIDE’            FILM SCREENING   in  AVALON

This  powerful, compassionate, documentary film by Porter Speakman will be shown at Avalon Baptist Church  on  Sunday  morning   June 28  at  10 a.m.

“With God On Our Side “takes a hard look at the theology and politics of Christian Zionism, which teaches that because the Jews are God’s chosen people, Israeli government policies should not be questioned, even when these policies are unjust

Christian Zionists have been hugely important in American Foreign Policy  because of their influence on the right wing of the Republican Party. There are also Christian Zionists in Australia. The film traces Porter Speakman’ s change of heart from Christian Zionist to moderate peacemaker.

Speakman  said, “When you think God is on your side everything is justified. Radical Muslims justify suicide bombings, Radical Jews justify ethnic cleansing and radical Christians justify modern-day crusades.”

The  film is also valuable because it traces the history of the establishment of Israel as a right of the Jewish people without regard for the rights  of the Palestinians who had been living there for many hundreds of years.   This history is vital in assessing the justice of current politics.  It is particularly important  knowledge for human rights advocates who are often accused of being “änti-semitic”

The film makers believe “that God does not take sides with certain people, groups, nations or agendas. Rather, He is for all people.”
