Solution: Articulating the falsehood of Apocalyptic Eschatology

I was impressed by a rebuttal of Jerry Falwell by a Palestinian Christian author who wrote in his concluding remarks:

"He [Falwell] also overlooks several important biblical texts that explain the theological aspects of the land; instead he limits himself to the territorial aspect of the land, and to territorial and temporal eschatology where righteousness, justice, mercy, and love are less central than eschatological plans and agendas. Finally and sadly, Falwell overlooks his brothers and sisters in Christ who are Palestinians. For him, to stand against Israel is to stand against God but for us to overlook sin and promote injustices is to stand against God."
