“The ultimate conflict between Judaism and Christianity”

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on October 15, 2007


The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin.- Deuteronomy 24:16

 

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. – Romans 5:8

 

Conclusion: PAUL WAS A TRAITOR TO THE TORAH! And NO Christian can claim to be a true spiritual descendant of the ancient Hebrews!

This ties in with my last post here – the claims of being the rightful heir to the Jewish Legacy. Regardless of Paul and his views, it is impossible to hold both believes. If one believes that each and every one of us die for our own sin, one cannot logically, credibly also believe that another person, demig-d or not, has died for our sin. And the other way around. Those two are mutually exclusive.

Now, there is nothing wrong with the idea that some demig-d dies for the sin of humanity,  many have believed that prior to the Xians, but it is not compatible with the Faith of either the Ancient Hebrews or the Faith of Modern Judaism.

The author of the above quoted Blog, is quite right when he calls this “The ultimate conflict between Judaism and Christianity”, because this is exactly where Judaism and Xiansim part ways on the Tree of Religion.

“All this is mine – now get lost” (literally).

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on October 5, 2007


My friend Yael wrote:

 

But to the wicked, God said, ‘To what purpose do you recount My decrees and bear My covenant upon your lips?’ For you hate discipline and you threw My words behind you….These have you done and I kept silent, You thought that I was like you – I will rebuke you and lay it clearly before your eyes…..He who offers confession, honors Me; and one who orders his way, I will show him the salvation of God.

Let’s do a modern take on this passage:

But to those who say My Torah has been ‘fulfilled’, God said, ‘To what purpose do you claim to know my decrees? What’s this new covenant on your lips? Give me a break. You hate the discipline of following Torah and claim it’s all been done away with in the past. You did this and because I didn’t knock you up side the head you thought I was cool with what you were doing. Not hardly. Why don’t you go back and read Torah again without all your preconceived ideas of what it says? All I require is confession from your mouth and following mitzvot. All who do this will be shown My salvation [which is NOT your version of it!].

One thing more than anything annoys me with most, if not all Xians. How they claim to know better than us Jews what Torah means. How they claim some sort of interpretational ownership of OUR Holy Scriptures. It’s so arrogant, and condescending. Like some distant second cousin they come and lay claim to the Jewish Birth Right, that without even offering a bowl of lentel soup for it. They just step into OUR house and says: “All this is mine – now get lost” (literally).

Then it turns out they don’t want it, they just want bits and pieces here and there, that they fancy to be true, the rest they just flush down the toilet, like so much crap. They don’t care about Shabbat, or Family Purity, or about Kashrut, they just want what is “comfortable” and that fits with their Greek religion.

I don’t know how many times I have argued with Xians over Isaiah 7 – how that is not some messianic prophecy, how it’s a prophecy for a specific Israeli King at a specific time, and how the words in Hebrew don’t even match their interpretation, and how that specific prophecy was actually fullfilled in the time it was given, but no, I am Jewish, so I am blind, I can’t see straight, I, in my evil Jewish heart (if I have one) am so corrupted by my denial of their truth, that I, and all my ancestors, must have mis-read, mis-understood and must be so evil that I am deliberately spreading lies, because that is in my nature as a Jew.

Now, I do know a lot of Xians who don’t see it this way, who are respectfully trying to learn and accept the Jewish interpretation of the Tanakh, and even live by it – I can respect that – but the rest – Pffft.
