I went to Sunday School for several years - loved it, preferred it to day school. I absolutely loved the Children's Bible. In particular the Old Testament which is far more dramatic and interesting than the New, in my view! the Old has a lot of lessons for life, and has also served Hollywood well. I think I'm Jewish at heart! Is it still possible to convert?
U wanna be Jewish? Why? Ppl will hate you for it u can't eat this and that so many things u must so or can't do

Very hard

Oh ok. I thought it was really different. I have an Attic Greek textbook which I need to progress beyond Chapter 1.

Talula,

I think I'm Jewish at heart! Is it still possible to convert?

I had a discussion with a spokesman for Jewish group that actually welcomes converts into Judaism. However his group makes numerous errors. One being that they believe Judaism is a religion. By contrast the Bible shows that under Mosaic law it is a people descended of a group of 12 Israelite tribes in the Old Testament. But that same book shows that people came into the fold by way of adoption or amalgamation. See Ezekiel 47:22,

it shall come to pass, that ye shall divide it by lot for an inheritance unto you, and to the strangers that sojourn among you, which shall beget children among you: and they shall be unto you as born in the country among the children of Israel; they shall have inheritance with you among the tribes of Israel.


Thus, a stranger [one who is a newcomer as defined in http://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/...s=H1616&t=KJV], also known as a Gentile, inherits the same rights as native born according to the Old Testament. Bear in mind that in this volume Judaism constitutes a series of ethnic groups and only part of the 12 tribes of Israel.


The New Testament tells us there are no more strangers per Ephesians 2:19-22,


Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner [stone]

Galatians 3:29 says,

If ye be Christ's then ye are Abraham's seed and heirs according to the promise.


Thus, Christians are no longer Gentiles as Abraham's fold is widely expanded under Messianic law. Note how both the Mosaic and Messianic law emphasize membership in Abraham's fold of which Jews were only a tribal subgroup within the 12 tribes.

Re: Have you ever read Bible?

Ok here's what I don't get. In Chronicles 2, it is said that God moved Cyrus of Persia to make a proclamation that God has given him all the lands of the world and assigned him to build a Temple for him.

Here's what I don't get. Why would God make a Zoroastrian (which was what Cyrus was) the most powerful man in the world at the time? More importantly, why would Cyrus think or say that without converting to Judaism?

So is it metaphor or truth?

Or could it be that Cyrus just happens to be a model of humanism and goodwill and religious tolerance (so rare these days, let alone those days) who was STILL a faithful Zoroastrian just wanted to allow people in his empire to have freedom of religion? Something so rare in empires or realms of Abrahamic faiths.

Anyway, I just had to say it. It's puzzling some of these stories.

Re: Have you ever read Bible?

Another subject I have enjoyed debating is the issue of whether women should be allowed to preach in churches. Most orthodox Christians say no. But the New Testament clearly shows they may. In fact, an entire roster of female preachers appear in the last chapter of Roman.

As for the words "women are to keep silent in the church" - a message repeated twice - you will note that this was only done to two Greek churches. This is because female Christian preachers tried to usurp the pulpit. No surprise given that Greeks in the Gentile days had largely female dominated pagan temples. But female preachers are shown all throughout the NTin many other venues. Thus, women were to be allowed to preach as the Holy Spirit moved them. Same today, contrary to orthodox Christian teaching.
