    I ain't MessianIC but I believe fervently in Shema. This means I am NOT JisG. I DO believe in Christ Jesus as prophet, Messiah, Lord adon of men and elohim at the Right Hand of God. Adon of angels too. And all anyone else EXCEPT his Father the Only True God.

    Can I find a nice warm and cool place here? If not I will pass you ice cold shoulders on.

    Yeah, I think David did that alot when herding his sheep. He talked to God too.

    Might have been a daydreamer in fact. Until the bear and the lion attacked. Now daydreaming isn't appropriate.

    I don't attend a Messianic Jew congregation since there isn't one anywhere near me, but I'd like to learn about following the law from people who practice it. Jesus kept the law, and since I'm called to follow him I should to. I agree with the SOP and won't challenge it's contents.

    I am a Nazarene along with my two friends who live in the same city as I. I believe in Yahshua the messiah who lived, died, and lived again. I believe in torah and the teachings of Yahshua. I am not a participant in messianic judaism and my friends and I do not call ourselves messianic jews.

    Can I post here, please?

    I understand there are several different varieties of Nazarene. Are you of the group who believe that your faith has remained unchanged since the time of Yeshua? Or one of the current Nazarene's here in the US that is more a variety of Christianity than Judaism?

    We reject the name, "Jesus Christ" and christian traditions. The name, "Jesus Christ" is from 'Mithra' worship and has no meaning like the name, "Yahshua" does. Many mainstream christian traditions such as communion, sunday worship, easter, and christmas are pagan. They do not even keep the biblical feasts and they know nothing of the aleph and the tav.

    I gave a long answer because I'm not entirely sure what you mean by, "unchanged." Yahshua said he did not come to abolish the law, but to fulfill it.

    My friends and I quit going to a messianic group in my town because some of the things were not of the word and the leader still held on to some pagan ideals and trusted only what so called scholars had to say.

    EDIT: In case you may have read some of my old posts, I have learned so much since I posted those. I'm not a pagan anymore. Those posts were quite some time ago.

    EDIT 2: I also saw on my profile where it says, "Faith: Christian." The website no longer gives me an option to change that. I see the website is still broken and buggy in places since it has had so many changes. If someone can tell me how to change that I would be grateful.

    You need to start a thread here and ask for your faith icon to be changed: http://www.christianforums.com/forums/member-services-center-msc.883/

    Here are our beliefs for the MJ forum:

    I believe in all of those beliefs you listed in the statement of beliefs with the exception of the pronunciation of Yahshua, but that is minor.

    Read and agreed. Just would like a lil clarification on messianic gentile. It may be minor, but: you can believe in Yeshua and keep torah and be out of covenant??? Is this just a distinction between born jew and non-jew? or is there a thread for this lol.
