Jesus

O Little Town of Bethlehem

O Little Town of Bethlehem

 It seems every few weeks, an activist makes the assertion that Jesus was a Palestinian. While I (and history) disagree, I understand the blatant political motivation behind their statements. What disturbs me more are the Christian leaders who espouse this falsehood that’s insidiously creeping into our churches today. 

 Recently, I heard a pastor lead into a message by asking everyone to imagine they’d traveled back in time to meet the shepherds living in Bethlehem, Palestine at the time of Christ’s birth. No one in the audience even blinked.
