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

James Haire

One thing I find particularly strange is the Jews claim the Torah yet it seems like everything they do contradicts it. For example the sanctioning of immoral depravity that is clearly condemned as darkness. Although the vast Majority of Christians do this also in the name of “love” they excuse it as “That’s the old testament, It’s all about love now” Which is complete nonsense. But nevertheless they don’t say they follow the Torah and then do everything the Torah condemns. I have also never heard that they believe the Messiah is an Age. This seems to me to be a very worldly view of things. It’ appears as if all their hopes are in this life and this world which is unfortunate because I hold the view nothing here is worth much and is all temporary. It appears as if their entire believe system is about superiority in this life instead of knowing the creator intimately and dying to this worlds pleasures. I didn’t know all of their hopes were in this world and not the next.
