Subject: Thanks for....
Thank you for the excellent and informative website.
As an Orthodox Jew who has embraced Jesus as Messiah, I was pleased to
find your pertinent articles on the Hebrew Roots movement. I
worked out early that there was something amiss about it in the
light of the New Testament. Although I couldn't put my finger on
it initially, I soon worked out that their problems stem from an
attitude that religion is something people can decide on rather
than something people need to submit to. The "let me make a
religion" is a form of
modernism. I have found the Hebrew Roots movement to be ignorant of both
Christianity and Judaism alike.
Although I am still observant in my Jewish practices, I have
attended a mainstream Christian theology college and preach in a
mainstream Christian church, having been ordained six years ago.
My personal prayer and devotional life is Jewish, but that is
because I identify with my culture and rearing, not because it
saves me or because it makes me "special". I compare that to my
Greek friends who attend Greek churches or my Lebanese friends
who attend Lebanese ones. Those
communities have a unique prayer and devotional life connected
intrinsically to their background and ethnicity and I believe
that I can also have that. However, we are one in the Lord, Our
I totally receive with joy the respect shown throughout your articles.
May God Bless you.
you so much for writing and for the kind encouragement. In the
past, I have been accused by some as being anti-Messianic. Most
of those allegations have come from Hebrew roots people who are
former church members, all of them Gentile. I appreciate your
support, and your thoughts about the movement. Another Jewish
man named Malachi Goodman wrote me a while back about my
website. He had succumbed to the false teaching of the Hebrew
roots movement, and had returned to traditional Judaism.
I would like to have your permission to post your letter to my
website in the letters section. ... I am not anti-Messianic or
anti-Jewish, but very pro truth. I have scrutinized the church
and its error much more than I have written about the Messianic
movement as a perusal of my article index will show.
Unfortunately, many have forgotten that it is about Christ.
I am thrilled to meet another brother in the Lord, and commend
you on your stand to serve Christ,... I have found that each of
us have things God calls us from, regardless of our background
and it can be difficult. Praise God we are more than conquerors
in Christ Jesus.
Blessings to you and yours,
