“God does not love America. If that offends you, you have a problem.
God does not love Israel. Israel as a nation is a construct of the Truman Administration and some legal wrangling within the United Nations.
I know we have been taught — truly indoctrinated — to think otherwise. I get it. It’s a hard truth to realize that as a nation God is no more devoted to us than he is to Afghanistan or Iraq, Iran or North Korea. It’s like learning that your mama loves your brother as much as she loves you. It’s disappointing to not be the favorite. But when it comes to nation-building, God does not play favorites.
