Security and Safety of the Bible Lands
Pilgrim Tours’ Position:
Concerned about safety? As a Christian tour operator, the staff at Pilgrim Tours takes a Biblical perspective in regards to the current situation in the Middle East. We do not believe that peace in Israel is something that will occur until the Prince of Peace comes to restore His kingdom. Our interpretation of scripture leads us to believe that we are in the "last days" and things are moving quicker than ever before. However, it is impossible to determine when things will come to a prophetic climax.
Our guides and support staff are kept aware of any news and of the thousands of passengers we send every year, not one has been in danger. If you are interested in the special blessings only available in Israel, we will take you there. Please do not ask us if we can promise safety. No one can do this. We do maintain that a Bible Land Tour is probably safer than a visit to New York City, Chicago, or Los Angeles. An expert driver and guide will keep you from areas that could present a problem and treat you to the riches of Israel as a special guest.
Keeping this in mind, we are still encouraging people to travel. There is no better way to boost one’s Spiritual growth, sanctification, worship, love for God, and understanding of God’s Word than with a visit to the Lands of the Bible.
