KWM’s founder, Rev. John Kleinheksel, ThM, is an acknowledged spokesperson to explain “Christian Zionism”, how it has influenced U.S. Middle East policies and why people of faith should be opposed to it, on biblical grounds.
Pastor Kleinheksel uses a summary of Dr. Burge’s book, Jesus and the Land, his own research paper and the PowerPoint presentation of Rev. Alex Awad shown to the KWM community in March, 2020. Here is the link to that presentation.
Earlier, the editors of the anti-Christian Zionism website <christianzionism.org> asked him to write an essay on “Why I Am Not a Christian Zionist.” That short essay is now posted HERE on their fine site.
After only three weeks on the <academia.edu> site, 107 persons from 21 countries have viewed his 6,000-word research paper on the subject. There has been vigorous discussion in the sidebar at the site with pro- and anti-Christian Zionists weighing in. That site can be reached HERE.
Jewish, Christian and Muslim activists are hopeful the Biden administration will assertively move away from President Trump’s embrace of Christian Zionism.
