• Welcome to Christian Forums
  1. Welcome to Christian Forums, a forum to discuss Christianity in a friendly surrounding.

    Your voice is missing! You will need to register to be able to join in fellowship with Christians all over the world.

    We hope to see you as a part of our community soon and God Bless!

  2. The forums in the Christian Congregations category are now open only to Christian members. Please review our current Faith Groups list for information on which faith groups are considered to be Christian faiths. Christian members please remember to read the Statement of Purpose threads for each forum within Christian Congregations before posting in the forum.
  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.
  4. There have been some changes in the Life Stages section involving the following forums: Roaring 20s, Terrific Thirties, Fabulous Forties, and Golden Eagles. They are changed to Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Golden Eagles will have a slight change.
  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.
  7. There has been an addition to the announcement regarding unacceptable nick names. The phrase "Let's go Brandon" actually stands for a profanity and will be seen as a violation of the profanity rule in the future.

    :hug: Judaism is a nice religion but I have been set to a different "Path" right now. I would say it is running pretty much in parallel with yours in some ways. I am still into the Hebrew and Greek a lot.

    Btw did you notice that new email Rapture site showing in my Siggy? LOL. Shalom :wave:

    I notice these verses are opposite concerning the "hills/mountains". Interesting :sorry:

    http://www.scripture4all.org/

    Hosea 10:8 And they are destroyed high places of vanity/aw'-ven, Sin of Israel. Thorn and weed shall come up on their altars, and they say to mountains 'conceal-ye-us'/03680 kacah and to hills 'fall-ye/05307 naphal on-us' [Luke 23:30/Reve 6:16]

    Luke 23:30 "Then they shall be beginning to be saying to the mountains 'be falling/pesete <4098> (5628) upon us' and to the hills 'cover/kaluyate <2572> (5657) us'". [Hosea 10:8/Reve 6:16]

    Regarding the OP...this is not new news. This is how it's always been. I dunno if you remember my good buddy P_G, he was King of the Messianics and the executive admin of CF for some time, but he wasn't ethnically Jewish afaik.

    <deleted wise-ass remark that would most likely result in a warning>

    ...but I don't mind telling you privately, Gavi. :hug:

    Maybe the exclusivist attitudes hurt their feelings?

    Hehehehe, it's like we're in a hot tub or something. :D I've missed Arunma, too, but he hasn't responded to me in-thread for a long time. :(

    And incidentally I happen to agree that ethnicity doesn't really matter. I only found out recently that I am, in fact, ethnically Jewish, but having been sheltered from the faith all my life, I don't really feel it.

    Uh, but how would you know that?

    Ayup. The one, the only, Pastor George Cook of the Nehemiah Center!!!!1

    IIRC, it was his idea to kick the rabbinical Jews out of the MJ forum, wasn't it?

    Hey HoD!!! :hug:
    I always wondered why Orthodox Jews even went to that board. Iwas kicked out of it a few times myself [as well as the OBOB Catholic board] and I was Christ-ian!

    So I did what Jesus told me to do in Matt 10:14 :D

    Mark 6:4 And said to them the Jesus "than not is a prophet dishonored except in the own of his country and in the together-generateds/kinsmen of him and in the home of him".

    Matthew 10:14 And whosoever no should be receiving ye, nor-yet should be hearing the words of ye, coming out outside of the home or of the city, that, shake off! the dust/koniorton <2868> of thine feet.

    Actually, I don't think he was the instigator,
    although maybe he have had a hand in it.

    There was a new Messianic poster who was
    non-Trin (the name escapes me now) who
    didn't stay around long. She was upset that
    she could not post on the forum, but
    Jews could (members with a magen david icon
    could post anywhere; probably their way of
    having access to try to convert us, LOL).

    When she asked a Mod there why this was
    so, the Mod posted to the Administrators
    and it took off from there. The powers that
    be at that time decided she was right and
    blocked Jews from posting...

    Well, I don't post much in the MJ forum, anyway. That thread a stranger created about what an evil person *I* am left me kind of discouraged.

    And hurt. Very deeply hurt.

    You know what the sad irony is here?

    On this forum, depending on whom I was conversing with at any given time, I have been lumped into the same category as Satanists, Vodouns, Santerians, "fluff bunnies," and even those little freaks practicing pseudo-satanism to appear rebellious or shocking (Mind you, I have no problem with the first three religions mentioned, but they are not -nearly- what I practice), and all because the Forum administrator's POV has been that we are all the same.

    So please believe me, I have a very good idea of how you feel, and certainly agree with your sentiments. I don't consider it to be fair or reasonable either.

    At the same time, though, I can't help but feel compelled to ask; can you now understand better how I feel as well? And if you had taken notice of my position a year ago, would you have ever foreseen it would eventually be directed to you? And most importantly, if this is the direction the administration wants to take today, what can we expect tomorrow?

    Just my thoughts,
    -- Druweid

    Hiya Heart.

    Let me say first, that you made me totally laugh with your moniker about LLOJ being your new hero. Strange bedfellows, but friendship is grand, aint it!

    You feel that ethnicity shouldn't matter. In a way you are correct. When I say that, what I mean is that anti-Semitism isn't really about race or ethnicity but about Judaism. But Judaism itself is about lineage. One can't get away from that. And it is this very belief that G-d made a covenant with Abraham AND HIS DESCENDENTS for ETERNITY that so ticks people off.

    Christians have never had a corner on the market of Anti-Semitism. Polytheistic pagans before them sought to wipe out the Jewish people. In fact, the earliest record of Israel is an Egyptian source which simply states, "Israel is no more." Secular regimes as well such as the communist block countries also sought the irradication of Jewry because simply to exist AS A JEW was to believe in G-d. Now Islam is working overtime. In each group the issues play out, but in slightly different ways.

    The idea of the church is to spread it's "good news" to all people. But of all people, the Jews are unique. Why? Because it was to the Jews that G-d first revealed himself and formed covenant. It is to the Jews that the Jesus came and preached. Even the apostles said, "To the Jew first." Yet the very people to whom the Messiah should have most quickly recognized and embraced considered him of no significance whatsoever. THAT is deeply disturbing to Christians, and it is why they tend to target Jews above all groups for conversion.

    When the temple was destroyed, and later when the Jews were kicked out of Jerusalem, the surviving gentile churches lost their connection with what had been the heart of the believing community in Jerusalem. Without a Jewish core, they quickly proposed a way to compensate for the rejection of JC by the Jesus: The REAL Israel didn&#8217;t! The OLD Israel rejected him, but now the Church was the NEW Israel.

    Jews, simply by remaining Jews, represented that reminder that Israel didn&#8217;t go along with the game plan. It is why every Jew in every generation was said to have Crucified Christ anew. Supersessionism became the rod with which to bludgeon them.

    Now do you get it?

    Evidently Romans 11 is lost on some people.
    Paul makes a distinct difference between Jews and Gentiles. As far as salvation is concerned - Gentiles are now partakers in the Grace HaShem offers thru Yeshua. But as far as now becoming Jews instead of Gentiles, that would be like saying since an orange is in a basket of apples and was sold as a basket of apples, the orange is now an apple.
    What Gentiles don't realize is to be a Jew - one must accept the history of the Jews, the tears, and horror and the commandments and all that goes along with G~d's calling Jews - Jews. Especially as a Jew who accepts Yeshua as Messiah. They don't understand the life. We are not accepted by some in the Christian world (boy the looks I get in the Tel Aviv airport by the Christians on tours when they see me... my headcovering and long skirts...) and we are not accepted by some of our own People in the Jewish community. It ain't an easy life.

    The tears that my sins have caused - yes Yeshua has wiped them away and will continue to do so. The tears of my People I choose not to forget and I cry with Him as we remember what has been done to us. Those tears have a deep connecting thread. And those tears are for times past and for things that are now happening to those in Israel who name the Name of Yeshua as Messiah.
