(Worthy News) - Heads of churches in Jerusalem on Monday criticized what they see as a breach of the status quo in the capital, claiming there is a 'systematic attempt to undermine the integrity of the Holy City of Jerusalem and the Holy Land, and to weaken the Christian presence.'

In a joint statement the leaders said, “We now find ourselves united once again in condemning recent further encroachment on the status quo,” the churches said. “In such matters as this, the Heads of the Churches are resolute and united in our opposition to any action by any authority or group that undermines those laws, agreements, and regulations that have ordered our life for centuries.” [ Source (Read More...) ]

  1. Um. There is a difference between "church" leadership that is actually Catholic/Orthodox instead of Christ (well, Messiah actually) following and Jerusalem would be better off without the "christian," which means Christ follower, who are nothing of the kind.

    This is why the word "church" which was devised and imposed by the Catholic's so long ago (and forced on the translators of the original KJV by King James himself) has no place in Christianity. The Messianic circles (denominations and autonomous) already know this. The longer "church" remains a part of following Christ, the worse it will get on Christian who can't be bothered to look it up.

    Mercy to then who have no way to check, i.e. our North Korean brethren.

    What excuse Torah students (talmidim) and American Christians have I can't even imagine.
