    It seems like Hasidic Judaism is authentic Jewish practice to me. I see different kinds of Jews and it reminds me of different Christian denominations, some of them totally off the mark when it comes to their beliefs.

    Jews reject Jesus' divinity, and thus have only eternal death waiting for them...

    I encourage you to study the Torah, or the TaNaK, and become a Jew. Obey, observe, God's Commandments, and join with the Jewish People, even the Nation of Israel.

    Incorrect.

    We reject that which is not of God. Consider Jesus as a demigod in this, divinity, deity.

    It is my belief that Jesus is the Son of God. Consider Colossians 2:9 NASB.

    That's for God to decide. God will save who he chooses

    I have much deep respect for Judaism. I believe that Catholicism is the fulfillment of Judaism. I remember hearing Rosalind Moss tell her story about her journey from Judaism to protestantism to finally Catholicism. One thing she said always stuck in my mind: The first time she walked into a Catholic Church she said to herself, this is a synagogue, except with Christ. That sentence has always stuck with me. (More)

    And why shouldn't it be! We carry on many Jewish traditions. At Mass we pray:

    Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation,
    for through your goodness we have received
    the bread we offer you:
    fruit of the earth and work of human hands,
    it will become for us the bread of life.

    Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation,
    for through your goodness we have received
    the wine we offer you:
    fruit of the vine and work of human hands,
    it will become our spiritual drink.

    Thats not in the Bible, but I am sure you recognize it, maybe phrased a little different.

    We have a tabernacle just like you. But while yours holds the written Word, ours holds the Word become flesh:



    Authentic Christianity is very Jewish in many ways. Its nothing like what most American Jews think of when they think of Christians. Its nothing like the hokey small town preacher waving a Bible around in a little church. .

    I am a former Christian, an Ex-Christian, not Protestant or Catholic, and not Catholic. The Lutheran Church we meet in here in Tacoma, Washington, our Synagogue for now, still has idols.

    You reject Jesus as God.

    Therefore, you have only eternal death.

    Dude, thats over the top. God will save who HE decides to save. I am sure there will be Jews in heaven and Christians in hell and who knows what else.

    I am not going to argue this with you in this gentleman's thread. God will save who he pleases. Thats all there is to it.

    Jesus is the Son of God. I do not see anything that I want to reject, nor do I have a reason to reject anything.
