Free-Market Zionism: Three Simple Steps

The gang at Christians United for Israel (CUFI) has its undies in a bunch about Ron Paul’s amendment to the fiscal 2011 funding bill that would end aid to Israel.

I have an idea: why not try a free-market approach to supporting Israel? I am quite serious. Here is my three-step plan for free-market Zionism.

1) Shaking down the American taxpayer to provide aid to Israel – or, for that matter, any foreign country – is not just unconstitutional. It is also unbiblical. In the words of II Corinthians 9:7, “So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.”

Christians are never to bankroll their works by force. So if CUFI truly wants to support Israel, let its members reallocate their funds. Instead of, say, building bling-bling megachurches that resemble the Burj Al-Arab Hotel in Dubai, why not pass the hat for Israel? Perhaps CUFI supporters could take a special love offering after each service.
