“Israel was unique among nations in that it was conceived and dedicated at its foundation for the purposes of God…But there was one other—a civilization also conceived and dedicated to the will of God from its conception, America.”
The above passage of dialogue from The Harbinger, the huge best seller by Jonathan Cahn, is at the heart of the criticism the author received for his book, unduly so, in my view.
The harsh words of condemnation flowed from some I respect. Nonetheless, the criticism was wrong, and I am quite disappointed in them and question their discernment in leveling the charges, because they should be much more aware of exactly what Cahn was saying than they demonstrated. The critics clearly had not read his book in its entirety. The author’s words, as well as his book in its entirety, pointed out that America was, like Israel, dedicated at its birth to godly principles.
