I have known several Messianic Jews; some even attend my church. I do not know of any defined doctrine that is held by Jews who accept Christ. In my experience they are just Christian. There are a few Messianic congregations but I have never attended a service there.
I will say that many aspects of Judaism in America are more cultural than spiritual. I know several Reform Jews that do not even believe in God, but they call themselves Jews and they honor their Jewish traditions. Depending on the person and how they were raised, some people continue to follow the Jewish traditions after becoming Christian. They observe the holy days and have Seder every week. I actually enjoy attending Passover Seder and some of the other traditional Jewish celebrations. It is very informative and its part of our heritage as Christians.
It's become an issue now because one of the posters on this thread actually called Trump a "warrior."
So how is it that the privileged Trump who, like so many others of that time period, received multiple deferments and had his draft status downgraded from 1A to 1Y during the very height of the Vietnam war, is spared any scrutiny about his alleged military prowess while I have earned two combat patches and am asked what my problem (with Trump) is?
Or should I have waited until November 11 -- three days after the election -- before daring to question Trump's "warrior" status?
I hope this weekend to finish the book on Enoch I'm reading and start on a book on DNA. Besides that, I'm going to enjoy my 3-day weekend with my wife, dogs and fixing my car, if the relay comes from Amazon comes in time. I really appreciate Amazon's breath of products, customer reviews and quality service. I might even get some shooting done at the range. Hope you all have a safe Memorial Day weekend.
"Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends. [NASB, John 15:13]
How much more is the love of Jesus for us that He laid down His life for us who were not yet His friends? And let us never forget this Memorial Day the ultimate sacrifice of our men and women in service to this country, who put their lives on-hold, and on the line for all of us. God bless them, their families and friends.
Let us remember on this 3-day weekend those of us whose family members and friends have made the ultimate sacrifice for our safety. To all the men and women in service to this country, both on the battlefield and serving in some support capacity, I solute you, and respectfully ask God to bless you and your families for your service, in Jesus name I pray.
