I Am A Jew. I Do NOT Hate Christians Or Jesus.
It is painful for me many days to hear accusations of being a “Christ killer”.
I do not hate Jesus, I do not hate his teachings, life, ministry. I do not hate God. I do not hate Christians. I do not hate true Christianity. I do not hate true Judaism.
I think we all “kill Jesus” on a daily basis. We kill him with defamation. We kill him by not following his teachings and commands. After all, Jesus pretty much commanded what HaShem/God commanded, did he not? I don’t understand why many Jews hate Christians, either. And, I don’t get why many Christians just hate all Jews.
Love or hate Jesus, Jewish people…Jesus commands are God’s commands. Love or hate the Jews, (Christian people): Jesus walked the earth as a Jew.
Being from a pretty mixed ethnic family, I believe I have had the best of worlds.. I enjoy pleasant Jews and I enjoy nice Christians. I read the Torah, (Old Testament) and I read the bible, (New Testament). I realize this may be un-Orthodox but I have always been un-Orthodox. I will read what I believe is good and right regardless of people around me and what they think.
I think its past time for Jews to embrace Jesus teachings at least. I think its time for Christians to embrace Jesus being a Jew.
I believe that if we all did just this, there would be less angst.
I am ALWAYS going to stand beside a Jew who is a good Jew and Jesus is a GREAT Jew.
