Safisoft..

Not all of Christianity has been antisemitic. Admittedly most, especially the mainline denominations, have. But the Christian scriptures do not permit it. Never did.

My belief re Jews is that they are God's to deal with. They are specifically God's chosen and Christianity is not going to change that. No.. I do not believe in replacement theology.

Our disagreement has been, is, and always will be the issue of Messiah. When he comes, we'll find out who's right.. eh?

In any case, yes the Jew's are indeed my brethren. And I mean Jews being Jews, not Jews who convert to Christianity. Jew's have no better friends on earth than my brand of Christian. That's a fact. And it doesn't revolve around some wild-eyed end-time/Israel theology.

And I will take your answer to be "shituf".

Hey Allie.. how about you? Care to answer #250?

Are all Xtians AZ? And if so, is it specifically because of:

1) Trinity Doctrine
2) Incarnation

I am just looking for good-natured dialog here.

Well said. As far as Messiah, only the most liberal do not believe in a literal Messiah coming at a time yet future. In that, many conservative Christians find agreement with conservative/orthodox Jews. The only question is "Who" and has He come before? To that question I would answer the same as you - except I would not say His name was 'Jesus' - but Yeshua. He was and is a Torah-observant Jew - and He did not come to abolish the Torah, but to make it stand up (Deut 13, Deut 18, Matt 5:17-18).

Shalom.
