A CATC Among the Pigeons

CWI's Richard Gibson has produced a report on the recent Christ at the Checkpoint (CatC) conference held in Bethlehem, which can be found in CWI's Herald magazine (a copy of his report is also available online here). Gibson is particularly critical of how he believes CatC has damaged grassroots efforts at reconciliation between Messianic and Arab believers, which have been going on in the region for years.

It's worth noting that CWI, which is first and foremost an evangelistic ministry to the Jewish people, is neither dispensational nor theologically Christian Zionist (though their website is critical of supersessionism). Indeed, looking at their statement of faith they seem pretty Reformed. Which is what makes Richard Gibson's report the more interesting, given it's not coming from the dispensational wing of the Church.
