Question: In the August TBC you lump D. James Kennedy and R.C. Sproul with denominations that have promoted a boycott against companies doing business with Israel. Dr. Kennedy has taken no part in such boycotts.

Response: No, denominations that "have initiated a boycott..." were mentioned in one sentence, Kennedy and Sproul in the next. I was specific that the latter "have rejected modern Israel as of any significance in the fulfillment of God's promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob."

There was no link between boycotting denominations and these two Calvinists. I gave no reason to imagine that Kennedy and Sproul promoted any boycott against Israel. I simply showed that their teachings re Israel reject God's "everlasting covenant" (Gn 17:7, 19; 1 Chr:16:17, etc.) with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, denying God's repeated promise of the land of Canaan to these patriarchs and their descendants for an "everlasting possession" (Gn 13:15; 17:8; 48:4, etc.).
