Guilt Times 2 & Nowhere To Hang

Friday, August 5th, 2011


Most people in the world do not believe Jesus Christ is the Messiah.  Actually out of the 7-billion people in the world, most have never heard of Jesus and don’t know what we’re talking about.  Most people in one of the world’s most important religions, Judaism, do not believe Jesus is the Messiah either.  However, a few Jews do believe He is, started a club about it, and called it ‘Jews for Jesus’.

Jews for Jesus is a conservative, Christian, evangelical organization that focuses specifically on the conversion of Jews to Christianity. But its members consider themselves Jewish people. Jews don’t believe Jesus is Messiah because, among other things, they don’t believe Jesus fulfilled the messianic prophecies.  Of course, j4j disagrees.  To make it even more confusing, Jesus was a Jew.

Most Christian sects aren’t thrilled with j4j.  Neither are Jewish sects.  So j4j seems to be neither fish nor fowl. I will ignore the obvious pun.  A commentator on one of the political discussion boards to which I belong seem to be a j4j.  He seems confused to me about a lot of things.
