Full Question

Christ was a Jew, so why don’t Catholics observe Judaism?


Catholicism is the completion of the Jewish religion. Had all of the Jews of Jesus’ time accepted him as the Messiah and entered the Church, there would have continued to be one true religion. But because Jesus of Nazareth was not accepted as the Messiah by the majority of the Jews of his time, a split occurred. Pre-Christian Judaism was the true religion; post-Christian Judaism is an incomplete religion because it lacks recognition of the Messiah it anticipates.

    So says the L-rd: That is a lie, Israel is the firstborn son og G-d and I am your Father the one and only Savior, there is NO other!

      The Church is the new Israel. Christianity is the fulfillment of Biblical Judaism.

      Jesus had issues with Jews who did not accept Him as the Messiah. Read in full. John 8:21-47

      John 8:31, To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples.
      33 They answered him, “We are Abraham’s descendants,

      37 I know that you are Abraham’s descendants. Yet you are looking for a way to kill me,

      39 “Abraham is our father,” they answered.

      “If you were Abraham’s children,” said Jesus, “then you would do what Abraham did.

      40 As it is, you are looking for a way to kill me.

      “The only Father we have is God himself.” 42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I have come here from God.

      44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

      45 Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me!

      47 Whoever belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.”

        The NT, which you use to back your belief, has no more validity than the book of mormon. If I quoted the book of mormon to you, you would ignore it completely. That is what i do to the NT – INGORE IT! The only Word of God is between Genesis and Malachi!!

          Of course you do not accept the NY….otherwise you would be a Christian. But as Catholics we see the Church as the the New Israel and Christianity (Catholicism) as the continuation of Biblical Judaism. Rabbinical Judaism is just a false man-made religion. You ignore the NT, we ignore your Talmud.

            YOU SAID: as Catholics we see the Church as the the New Israel . You are EXACTLY right. “BECAUSE” you are catholic, you believe what catholics believe. That belief might has NOTHING in common with actual TRUTH, but that doesn’t matter to you because… you are “catholic”.
            You would tell a mormon the exact same thing. “Just because you believe it, doesn’t make it TRUE”
            You would tell a muslim the exact same thing. “Just because you believe it, doesn’t make it TRUE.

            I did not leave christianity because I disagreed with it, I left it because it was a lie. Realizing that was the WORSE time in my life because I had been programed to believe EVERYONE ELSE was wrong. Well, now that Scripture proved christian was demonstrably wrong, what am I supposed to do?

            Well one thing at a time… first leave the prove lie and trust that God will continue to lead… Not surprisingly – HE DID!

          2. Armando Bejasa

            You think Christianity is wrong and that you are right. And now you believe that it is your Divine mission to troll Christian sites like I know where you are coming from, lol!

          3. elskid

            Well I would disagree with “troll” but that could just be semantics. But you are right, I DO consider it a mission to reveal the lie of christianity. I have no such compulsion to try to change the minds of atheists or buddhists because they don’t believe the Tanakh. Once a person declares a belief in the Tanakh, it is very easy to PROVE that christian doctrine is NOT a natural progression. It is a SUBVERSION of what God created and his intention.
            So, YES, I am DEEPLY committed to revealing the lie, just as most christian are DEEPLY committed to spreading it.
            I am FULLY convinced that there are a growing number of people who are starting to wake up to the lie, but they are so overwhelmed by the cultish effect of the peer pressure that they cannot break out of the false comfort.

            Christian believe we are tainted with original sin and unworthy of anything but hell. They believe all our good works are “filthy rags” and that only jesus is the gateway to anything more.

            That is such a lie. A) Access to the One True God of Israel has ALWAYS been available B) He created a system where “good works” is like CURRENCY. It is BRILLIANT!!!
            What is the ONE LINER?: Love God and Love Your Neighbor. So WHEN you do “good works” it goes in your column so do “bad works”. How do you erase “bad marks”? YOU REPENT. You A) stop doing them and B) you START doing what God told you in the first place.

            We don’t need jesus. It is such a foundational lie that doing good doesn’t matter UNLESS you are a christian. Doing good is the ONLY thing that matters!!
            Just like Ez 18 tells us (read the whole thing) The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself.

            Look at what God told Cain. Gen 4 (paraphrased here) “If you DO what is right you will accepted”. According to christian doctrine, that would have been a lie. Once Adam ate the apple we were doomed. NOTHING would have been “accepted”.

            Look at Ez again… 27 Again, when a wicked man turns away from the wickedness which he committed, and does what is lawful and right, he preserves himself alive.

            HOW? without jesus?!! Not according to christian doctrine. But christian doctrine is a LIE and Scripture PROVES it.

            So yeah… I have a mission…. to “save” people from christian lies!!… to wake people up so they don’t WASTE years of their lives committed to a false, man-made system which lead people AWAY from the Truth of Scripture.

        He was never anointed, messiah means anointed. What that supposed demigod/nephilim said or did not say is irrelevant in this debate, the only thing relevant is what God says in the matter and God says the very opposite of what you and your dead alleged nephilim you call “jesus” claim. I trust in God, not in man. And what you and that nephilim or your say is not only contradictory to the Word of God, it is blasphemy! Your problem is simple, you are a criminal, that is why you hate the Torah, the Laws and Statutes of our Creator. That is why you hate God and wish to replace Him with something that allows you to sin without consequence, just like all criminals. And that is why you hate us, because our very existence reminds you of your crimes and of the Law of God. That is why you have persecuted us for 2000 + years. The good news is, your time is up, Judgement day is coming and you will be allowed to pay for all your sins, an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth and a life for a a life, in short, measure for measure.

      If Jesus was the messiah, how comes there isn’t heaven on earth?

    Roman Catholics are taught they had replaced the Jews as God’s chosen people. The land of Israel promised by God to the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob now belong to “Christian” Rome. She became the “New Zion,” the “Eternal City” and the “Holy City,” titles which God had given to Jerusalem alone.

    Catholicism? Really? How arrogant can you get! Christ rebuffed the priests in the temple for their arrogance and distortion of the Jewish faith, kinda like the Catholic church distorts Christianty now. Far from your so-called “completion”. Funny how the word Catholicism wasn’t even a word until the 3rd century. Nice try!

    The Jews belong to :GOD: a deal cut with Moses as :GOD: was so disappointed in them.. and Jesus took the rest on, knowing that they are good..

    the answer to the question/tile of this article is as follows: Christ wasa Jew, but, His people turned their backs again….for the second time in the Old Testament, so, the “Romans” who were there for the choice made for Judas saw the errorsa of their ways through the decimation of Christ and therefore the few select Romans, true believers in what they witnessed after Christ’s death (after He rose…) began to follow the word of Christ….hence, the Roman Catholics were born. tah-dah !!

      So, if I am not mistaken we need Jesus because he “fixed” the problems caused by the bite of a certain apple. Would someone please tell me what were the problems caused by this bite and what solutions did Jesus bring?

  6. Billy Clampet Reply

    Jesus said I have come not to abolish the Law, Catholics like the muslims robbed from the scriptures both from old testament and new testament and made their religion from the scriptures they robbed and how they seen fit. Its very clear Catholicism like Islam took on its own identity outside of Christianity, there are no similarities Christianity and Catholicism similarities compare like the difference between heaven and hell literally, This you can say for sure there wont be a Catholic in heaven ever, for the Bible tells me so.

      He was no Jew but a nephilim according to your scriptures. There is only one God.

        christianschifferrnorway so you don’t believe in the triune nature of our Father in Heaven? Isiah 48:16 speak’s of the Spirit. Proverbs 30:4 speaks of the One who has ascended into Heaven and come down. The Lord is omnipresent and does’nt need to ‘come down’ or ascend. Jesus fulfilled the promise our Father made to Abraham.

    I am not interested in your false religion. I don’t go around trolling in Jewish sites.

    It says in the book that in the end times there will a falling away and a great deception. So, Jesus was a jew, but not a christian.. the whole of christianity in my view has been infiltrated – Jesus said he was the way – not the church.. it also mentions in revelation the ‘jews of the synagogue of satan’. So I think it’s unwise to put any faith or belief in any organisation. “many will come in my name performing signs, wonders and miracles saying “lord have we not done all these things in your name”? and he will say ‘get away from me you workers of iniquity”.. it also prophesies in revelation that a star will strike the earth in a place called wormwood. the russian word for ‘wormwood’ is chernobyl.. there’s heaps more – discard your affiliations and seek a personal relationship with Jesus is my advice..
