Friday, March 19, 2010 Debunked Part 2

From the home page:

>> Messianic Judaism is a Christian movement that began in the 1970s combining a mixture of Jewish ritual and Christianity. There are a vast and growing numbers of these groups, and they differ in how much Jewish ritual is mixed with conventional Christian belief. One end of the spectrum is represented by Jews For Jesus, who simply target Jews for conversion to Christianity using imitations of Jewish ritual solely as a ruse for attracting the potential Jewish converts. On the other end are those who don't stress the divinity of Jesus, but present him as the "Messiah." They incorporate distorted Jewish ritual on an ongoing basis.

  • If a Jew wants to mix Judaism and Christianity it's his perogative. A jew can still call him Jewish if he's ethnically Jewish. What the heck happened to once jew always jew? In any case, I left Judaism altogether and I'm not involved with organized religion.

  • Jews for Jesus is trinitarian, as per its statement of faith which says "We believe in one sovereign God, existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit."

  • Religion is subjective. Despite what orthodox jews like to claim, there is no one right way of performing a ritual.
