October 31 - UK Christian Congregation Evicted by Village Council for support of Israel
Article: Israel And The Last Days
Yesterday was the last service the Christian Congregation “Fathers House” held at Gwernymynydd Village Centre, North Wales as a consequence of being evicted after 11 years because the management Committee disagreed with their beliefs concerning Israel.
“Fathers House” stands firm in their support of Israel and belief that the land of Israel was given to the Jewish people as an everlasting possession in accordance with the Scriptures. Fathers House are not willing to compromise in expounding these scriptures and in making their support for the Jewish people and the establishment of Israel widely known through many mediums including the Fathers House Website and the Christians For Zion Website.
The management of the village centre made it very clear in their correspondence in May of this year that the views expressed in the Church Website were enough of an issue for them to evict the congregation from the Council-owned centre.
A recent Catholic Synod statement said: – “the Holy Scriptures cannot be used to justify the return of Jews to Israel and the displacement of the Palestinians, to justify the occupation by Israel of Palestinian lands.” The Methodist Church is calling for Boycotts and a Church in Wales Cannon is calling Israel ‘Oppressive and Racist’.
It is no surprise therefore that Father’s House do not believe that they would be supported by the Traditional Christian Community in the UK , however, they do know that many thousands in the Bible-believing Christian Community are not only standing in prayer with congregations such as Fathers House, but are seeking to support such ministries in any way they can.
