Which religion should I convert to?
I know you stand for all that is upright and the freedom to express, and respect all faiths, and you love to blow your own trumpet. Starting every post with how wonderful you are has changed nothing. You keep saying that you post what is in the Tanach as if what you post is the truth, it is not. You want to post the truth then post word for word and chapter and verse of what’s in the Tanach, not just what you say the Tanach says. I accuse you of deception and putting your own spin on what the Tanach says. All you have ever done is to say what in your opinion the Tanach is saying and never give chapter or verse, even when asked. You deny scripture and twist it around as saying that it is not referring to Jesus the Christ or the Virgin Birth and then make statements as why you cannot believe in the Christian Faith. Believe what you want, but when giving your opinion on what the Bible is telling you then give chapter and verse for others to sort out for themselves and not to just take your word for it. The Word of God is true, regardless of anyone’s view, and when there is a difference of opinions of what faiths believe and there Faith is in the same God then there is room for more discovery of what scripture is telling us. I don’t care why you don’t believe; I would rather know why you do believe and what you believe regarding Jehovah. I believe in the Jewish doctrines, I also believe in Jesus the Christ, as many Jews do. Telling anyone who truly believes and has their Faith in Jesus the Christ of why you do not believe in their Faith and why it cannot be true is never going to convert them. What I see is that there is much that you have not discovered in the Tanach, because I believe that it is the Word of God and is true. Our Unity with the One God depends on are discover of Him and not just are opinion of our interpretations of what scripture is saying. The closer we become to God the higher and truer our understanding will become. When you speak of Jehovah I’m with you, but when you speak of Jesus the Christ and why you are antichrist I am not.
So the foundation of my Faith remains.

Remember there is noting one can do to make God love you more and there is noting one can do to make God love you less, but there is something all can do to please God, and this is seeking after righteousness.
My sentiments exactly.
We know what is one of themost important ideas in the Universe. The following supports this;
>>>A successful business man was growing old and knew it was time to choose a
successor to take over the business.Instead of choosing one of his Directors or his children, he decided to dosomething different. He called all the young executives in his companytogether.He said, "It is time for me to step down and choose the next CEO. I havedecided to choose one of you. "The young executives were Shocked, but theboss continued. "I am going to give each one of you a SEED today - onevery special SEED. I want you to plant the seed, water it, and come backhereoneyear from today with what you have grown from the seed I have given you. Iwill then judge the plants that you bring, and the one I choose will be thenext CEO."One man, named Jim, was there that day and he, like the others, received aseed. He went home and excitedly, told his wife the story. She helped himget a pot, soil and compost and he planted the seed. Everyday, he wouldwater it and watch to see if it had grown. After about three weeks, some ofthe other executives began to talk about their seeds and the plants thatwere beginning to grow.Jim kept checking his seed, but nothing ever grewThree weeks, four weeks, five weeks went by, still nothing.By now, others were talking about their plants,but Jim didn't have a plant and he felt like a failure.Six months went by -- still nothing in Jim's pot. He just knew he had killedhis seed.Everyone else had trees and tall plants, but he had nothingJim didn't say anything to his colleagues, however, he just kept wateringand fertilizing the soil - he so wanted the seed to grow.A year finally went by and all the young executives of the companybrought their plants to the CEO for inspection.Jim told his wife that he wasn't going to take an empty pot.But she asked him to be honest about what happened.Jim felt sick to his stomach, it was going to be the most embarrassingmoment of his life, but he knew his wife was right. He took his empty pot tothe board room.When Jim arrived, he was amazed at the variety of plants grown by theother executives. They were beautiful - in all shapes and sizes. Jim put hisempty pot on the floor and many of his colleagues laughed, a few felt sorryforhim!When the CEO arrived, he surveyed the room and greeted his young executives.Jim just tried to hide in the back. "My, what great plants, trees andflowers you have grown," said the CEO. "Today one of you will be appointedthe next CEO!"All of a sudden, the CEO spotted Jim at the back of the room with hisempty pot. He ordered the Financial Director to bring him to the front. Jimwasterrified.. He thought, "The CEO knows I'm a failure! Maybe he will haveme fired!"When Jim got to the front, the CEO asked him what had happened to hisseed, Jim told him the story.The CEO asked everyone to sit down except Jim. He looked at Jim, and thenannounced to the young executives, "This is your next Chief ExecutiveOfficer!His name is Jim!" Jim couldn't believe it. Jim couldn't even grow his seed."How could he be the new CEO?" the others said.Then the CEO said, "One year ago today, I gave everyone in this room a seed.I told you to take the seed, plant it, water it, and bring it back to me today.But I gave you all boiled seeds; they were dead - it was not possible forthem to grow.All of you, except Jim, have brought me trees and plants and flowers. Whenyou found that the seed would not grow, you substituted another seed forthe one I gave you.Jim was the only one with the courage and honesty to bring me a pot withmy seed in it.
[I hope this plants the right seed in all wo erads it.Y.S.]Therefore, he is the one who will be the new Chief Executive Officer!"* If you plant honesty, you will reap trust* If you plant goodness, you will reap friends* If you plant humility, you will reap greatness* If you plant perseverance, you will reap contentment* If you plant consideration, you will reap perspective* If you plant hard work, you will reap success* If you plant forgiveness, you will reap reconciliationSo, be careful what you plant now; it will determine what you will reaplater.Think about this for a minute.If I happened to show up on your door step crying, would you care?If I called you and asked you to pick me upbecause something happened, would you come?If I had one day left to live my life, would you be part of that last day?If I needed a shoulder to cry on, would you give me yours?This is a test to see who your real friends are or if you are just someoneto talk to when they are bored.Do you know what the relationship is between your two eyes?They blink together,they move together,they cry together,they see things together,and they sleep together,but they never see each other;that's what friendship is.Your aspiration is your motivation,your motivation is your belief,your belief is your peace,your peace is your target,your target is heaven,and life is like hard coretorture without it!It's 'World Best Friends Week' Who is your best friend?Send this to all your good friends, even me, if I am one of them.<<<

Great story Yechiel. You have described how the bible should be understood and revealed to that inner being. Exoteric stories with an esoteric inner surrounding effect that cannot be described in mere words but understood only to those who can see beyond words. I would say that this is the place were the believer and the non-believer part.
As one true beliver to another, thank you.
Are Jews The Chosen People?
ATT: Yechiel. If you rape,(to plant your seed) you go to jail. Yechiel does blogging keep your mind off of your other hobby? Lets hope so Julius.
I would say that this is the place were the believer in Jesus Christ is God and the non-believing Jew part.
