Hi Urban, I agree with you, many Christians quote the old testament more than the new. Fundamentalist Christians especially, rarely quote the gospels, but rather the old testament, the writings of Paul or the book of revelation. Doesn't it seem strange that someone would call themselves Christians, yet almost never quote the words of Christ? Blessings.

My goodness, I can only imagine what on earth you might be talking about. Is it because they like money?

Same way with people who try to immitate US citizend and be more asmerican than them. Is it because they are just as stupid? It's one thing to tell a joke, it's a different thing to tell a racist joke. Would you tell a racist joke about black people? or is it just Jews that you allow yourself to joke about?

Oh, so you weren't joking when you posted that thing about 'Jews like money'? Okay, then you're obviously not very bright.

Since Jesus Christ: 1- was expected to come by the Jews (according to their scripture) 2- born and lived among the Jews 3- preached Only to the Jews 4- said clearly the he was sent only the the Jews (Matthew 15:24) 5- commanded his disciples not to go outside Israel (Matthew 10:5-6) 7- lived according to the Law of the Jews (circumcised at the 8th day) 8- recommended adherence to the Law of the Jews (Matthew 5:17-19) We can easily say that a real Christian is therefor a Jew by nature, those who abolished the Law follow Paul and Paul never met Jesus, it also should be noted the during the time Jesus in the earth He never call any of his followers a Christian, the Book of Acts (11:26) clearly mention that the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch by another people in another time and another place.

@urbandekay Whoa, what? You're telling a guy who gave a well researched, thought out response to your one-sentence question that he misunderstood, when it's clear that you just disagree with him? LOL WOW. Of course, there's nothing more respectable than criticizing people over the internet, whether they're from your own religion or not. You're such a joke! roflmao

I think you are speaking of messianic christians. They try to imitate Jews in their churches and wear the Tallit and Tefillin. They think that by pretending to be following the Jewish tradition they will be more acceptable to HaShem, but they still embrace the teaching of the christ figure. We find it insulting. As the christian story goes, the christ figure was a Jew. He followed the teachings of the Torah and the TANACH. He did not start a church, Paul did that. He was a rebellious Rabbi and a member of the elite Pharisees. He did not just speak to Jews, he spoke to and baptised gentiles.

No, I am not, I am speaking of Christians here who expound very unChristlike views and back them up with quotes from the Old Testament. You are correct in that Christ's first mission was to reform Judaism but when Jews rejected him he set about his wider mission to train the Disciples up to spread his message to the world and commanded them so to do all the best urban

16Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them. 17And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted. 18And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. all the best urban

"BTW what is a very unChristlike view?" Christ says, turn the other cheek Some Christians quote from the old testament justifying war That is, of course, just one example all the best urban

I love it! But no I haven't. It would be wonderful if More Christians pay homage to their roots than try to erase it. But really? How can a christian be more Jewish than a Jew?

I came across a person who said he is Jewish from his father side an Christian from his mother side. He also said that he is practicing both Judaism and Christianity... I thought he was contradicting himself.
