Reply To: Did any of the similarities or differences between Christian and Jewish theology surprise you? If so, which/why?

Andrew Langford

I would say my Church probably falls somewhere between Judaism and traditional mainstream Christianity. Judaism emphasizes the freedom of the individual to follow God of their own choosing. Christianity generally emphasizes being saved by grace.
My Church emphasizes both. But, the greater focus is on grace. I am taught in my Church we are saved by the grace of God after all we do and as we do what we could.
My Church recognizes the freedom of the individual as well. We refer to this as moral agency. We are free to choose, as they teach in my Church.
