Which religion should I convert to?
Yechiel … the information found in a Strong's Concordance is adequate enough for correct exegesis of the Tanak. Your “learn Hebrew” card is a meaningless attempt to justify your errors. You have misinterpreted enough scripture for me to know you are not as proficient as you want others to believe, and the sources you use for "authority" lack total correctness as well. I do not need to know Hebrew to know that there are other Jews who believe as I do concerning correct exegesis of the Tanak.
The Rabbis and Sages you place your eternal best interest in have nothing on Saul of Tarsus who was one of the greatest Pharisees of his day and had access to a Tanak that had not been tampered with like the generations to follow him did among the Jewish Clergy who flow with your "Liberal lean" to change what God has said to make it more "palatable" for this generation to desire to live by and reject Jesus as being the One the Prophets said would come. God said it; certain Rabbis alter it to suit their whim. Talmud is Rabbinical Judaism the Tanak is Biblical Judaism; I chose to believe the Tanak over your Talmud, and know unequivocally that New Covenant Judaism (Jeremiah 31) supersedes Old Covenant Judaism.
Of course a Christian and a Jew will differ on what is important about and in scriptures. That is to be expected in a godless world.
One difference between Sam andI; I do not think ignorance is blessed. i would ot judgedly commint on a verse I was ignorant of; and i would have more since to keep my computer quiet if i did
We are taught from Sinai to "Do and to learn." So ignorance is not an option

Does competition belong in the world of spiritual discussion?
to "know unequivocally" that one's choice "supersedes" another person's choice smacks of the sporting world and competition...always trying to "better" oneself over another. Does this type of thinking help or hinder a spiritual discussion? I think it hinders it. I do not believe I hear Jesus's voice speaking this way.
Dear Phys and Njoy;
You both made good points. G-d is one, but we continue to exercise the differences between us, instead of what we have in common and can use to make His world better.
Shalom is the goal, Siblinghood the award.
Help each other do do what He wants, instead of arguing over it like children, and the "door" may be open.
Evidently arguing like siblings is simply a flaw in our human nature Yechiel. We need to forgive ourselves and each other when this occurs and move on to some positive aspect of our opinions of each other. Hard to do when we feel insulted...believe me...I know.
All atheists are drug pushing criminals. That is why they conceal their drug revenues under "donations" to the League of Agnostics and Dawkins Society.
There are absolutely no exceptions. If you are an atheist, then you are a drug running criminal.
There is no other reason for atheists to be there but easy money through organized crime, but since Physicalist is an atheist he has to stay with his organized crime family's code of silence.
So, everything is explained.
You really believe what you just posted? I arrested many religiouis persons for all crimes. I also worked with some officers who where against all you mentioned, and they did not believe in G-d, or at least as you or I think of Him.
So go back to yhour drawing boaRd, and rmember, it is an offence to G-d to be a bigot.
Now you have some attention, can you join us in a civilized discussion>
