In Full Disclosure To My Non-Messianic Jewish Friends (e.g., UMBC Hillel and JSU)...

I need to state the following:


  1. As a Patrilineal Jew and Jewish Christian, I consider myself Jewish and (to be candid) a Completed Jew. As I've written, "I believe that Jews are first and foremost an 'am, an ethnos, a people--which is part of why, as Torah commanded, one must be cut off (i.e., exiled or even put to death) for worshiping other gods--viz., cutting yourself off from G-d in some way was cutting off your very life, your very being." Furthermore, " as the Talmud...rightly states...,... "A Jew, even if he sins, is still a Jew." Because of this and because of cutting yourself off from the Jewish G-d, you are a Jew who has cut his life off as opposed to a Jew who became a gentile. As Tanakh states, anyway, a Kushite can't change his skin and the leopard can't change his spots (cf. Jeremiah 13:23); thus a Jew, though he or she cuts his or her life off, remains a Jew."
  2. I do not believe that groups such as Jews For Jesus and Chosen People Ministries cause any havoc or tsores against the Jewish community. As I've written, " Jews for Jesus does not intend to "induce someone to convert to one's faith" or "recruit someone to join one's party, institution, or cause"-- that is not up to them." 1 Corinthians 3:5-7 explains the position of Messianic Jewish (Hebrew Christian, Jewish Christian) groups.
  3. I am offended by the implication that I am not a Jew even though I believe that a Jewish man was and is the Jewish Messiah--and Reform and Reconstructionist Jews don't even believe in a personal Mashiach or even (in some cases) a Messianic Age. So, why am I being punished for believing that a Jewish man fulfills the Biblical mandate and fits the Biblical concept of Mashiach? As I've written, "[D]on't tell me that I'm not Jewish because I believe that a Jewish man who you don't believe is the Messiah, is the Messiah."
  4. I do not believe in proselytizing. As I've written, "Many people...are  confusing proselytizing with being open about faith. My and other Messianic Jews' intent is not to convert or force conversion on anybody.... The Inquisitors, the pogromists, etc.--they proselytized." I won't be taken for a Pablo de Santa Maria or a Nicolas Donin, or a Pablo Christiani.   
In conclusion, I need to honestly disclose that I am a Patrilineal Jew and non-proselytizing Messianic Jew who considers Jews as primarily part of an ethnic group and secondarily part of religious groups (including Non-Messianic Jewish groups). On that note, I believe that Jews like myself--that is, Messianic Jews--remain Jews and believe that only G-d may lead a Jew to be a Messianic Jew. Messianic Jews such as myself, Jews for Jesus, and Chosen People Ministries are not individual Jews and Jewish groups who intend to forcibly attempt to convert fellow Jews to believe in a Mashiach, let alone in the Biblical and historical Jesus of Nazareth as Mashiach--the proselytizers are those such as the Pablo de Santa Marias, Nicolas Donins, and Pablo Christianis within the Messianic Jewish community.

Why Non Antimissionaries Are Not Part of the "Synagogue of Satan"

I discussed why Antimissionaries are part of the "Synagogue of Satan". Now I'll discuss why Non Antimissionaries aren't. I stated that Antimissionaries, whether in ignorance or deliberate defiance, oppose Yeshua (Jesus) as the Messiah. Non Antimissionaries do not. As I explained, "you are a Self-Hating and Incomplete Jew if you actively--ignorantly or deliberately--oppose the Messiah". Non Antimissionaries disagree that Jesus is the Messiah, but they aren't out to oppose Him. 


For example, Masada2000.org is Non Antimissionary, even though they basically consider Meir Kahane the Messiah. They even equivocate:




 We at Masada2000.org have no problem with a Jew converting out of Judaism if he feels another religion has more to offer. For example, Christianity and Judaism share many values. 



They don't paint Messianic Jews as a bunch of rabid, proselytizing koferim, either. However, they fairly point out when a professed Messianic Jew is either severely misguided or not really Messianic:


Nathanael Kapner    email bronathaniel@yahoo.com
Kapner, Nathanael
 
 "I attended Sabbath school from childhood until my young adult years. Now that I am an Orthodox Christian I can attest that Judaism Is Not A 'Religion' But A 'Club' Promoting Racial Self-Worship."
Nathanael Kapner   More from Brother Kapner... 
"When I was eight years old, my parents took me to my cousin's Bar Mitzvah at a farther part of the City of Pittsburgh, where I grew up. We entered into an old, musty smelling synagogue, which had the Jewish Star of David everywhere. After only ten minutes of being inside, I got nauseated and wanted to vomit. The synagogue seemed to have a deathly pall about it. And I couldn't bear looking at the Jewish Star everywhere... It was then at the age of eight, through my experience in that old, musty smelling synagogue, that I knew that Judaism was a religion of death... The Zionist state was founded on bribery, theft, and murder... Jews hate freedom of speech. Why? Because when we are free to speak, the Jews will be called to account for all of their crimes against humanity, their anti- Christian activities, and all of their cover-ups."


What Antimissionaries do, on the other hand, is paint all Messianic Jews to be this way. As I explained: 


"Non-Messianic Jews, being incomplete, are merely broken-off branches...Therefore, Non-Messianic Jews who are not Antimissionaries are merely misguided and have thus made a misguided conclusion about whether or not Jesus (Yeshua) is the Messiah...The Antimissionaries actively opposed and even lied about Yeshua."


So, not all Non-Messianic Jews are of the "Synagogue of Satan"--only the Anti Missionaries are actively doing Satan's work in opposing the Messiah. Non Antmissionaries are just misguided about who the Messiah is, and usually even tolerate and fairly portray Messianic Jews.
