Nearly every public servant who has his or her ear to the ground knows that the Bible enjoins individuals and nations to bless Israel. In Genesis 12:3 God states in His promise to Abraham (Israel’s patriarch), “I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse.…”

Not all, however, who follow Christ are pro-Israel. Within Evangelicalism there is a camp who hold to what I explained and defined in Part 1 as “Replacement Theology.” The other more sophisticated theological name is “Supersessionism.”

These adherents believe the Church supersedes Israel; they embrace what then amounts to a contextually descriptive title, “Replacement Theology.” In this study, I will use these terms interchangeably.

By way of review, the Replacement Theology crowd believes God is done with Israel, having replaced her with His Church. The Church then is the new Israel; therefore, the conditional promise (cf. Genesis 12:3) stated above in the Abrahamic Covenant (cf. Genesis 15:18) now applies to the Church.

What does the Bible say about all this? What do you believe? How an American lawmaker reasons this issue from Scripture has huge implications in American foreign policy and as many conclude, whether God will continue to bless America.
