The Reconnect 7-10-17 | Charlie Gard and difficult questions | Dr. Gerald McDermott: Why Israel matters
In the ongoing story of Charlie Gard, the parents were in court today in London to see if they might yet bring their baby to the United States for an experimental treatment. Charlie’s story should challenge us with moral and ethical questions relating to: Where is our hope? What does it mean to be pro-life? Are we willing to help other children from other places whose health issues would be resolved by simply coming to the US?
When it comes to Israel, people possess a wide range of opinions- and usually hold those opinions passionately. For Christians, we want to understand what the Bible says about Israel and how it relates to the current, distinct nation-state. Our guest, Dr. Gerald McDermott is an expert in the topic and has written on what Christians should know about Israel.
