Reply To: How can you work to combat antisemitism and supersessionism in your own Christian community?

Andrew Langford

I agree with this we need to be informed and educated. We need to engage in interfaith dialogue and combat Antisemitism.
Antisemitism is not really an issue in my Church per se. I find many similarities between Judaism and my Church. My Church leadership encourages interfaith dialogue and community engagement.
However, I am aware of some explicit and implicit Antisemitism among some members of my Church either through jokes or conversation.
A good way I could combat Supersession and Antisemitism in my religious faith is to not laugh in reaction to Antisemitic jokes and not engage in bashing other religious faiths. I could speak out when I hear others disparaging Judaism and other faiths. But, I could still share my religious faith with others and defend my religious faith in a kind way with understanding and compassion.
