The OP, IMO, is nothing more than barfing out a confused and sloppy OP and expecting Twebber's to help clean it up and at the same time say "No that's not some smelly barf you have there but beautiful spread of flowers."
"Really good thinking on your part."
I'm surprised that anyone even took the time to respond. Perhaps this person is mentally impaired in some way.
I suggest the person that wrote the OP NOT return to TWeb until they clean up their knowledge and thinking.

A very obscure verse is 1John 2:22,
Τίς ἐστιν ὁ ψεύστης εἰ μὴ ὁ ἀρνούμενος ὅτι Ἰησοῦς οὐκ ἔστιν ὁ Χριστός; οὗτός ἐστιν ὁ ἀντίχριστος, ὁ ἀρνούμενος τὸν πατέρα καὶ τὸν υἱόν
Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son
He that denieth (ὁ ἀρνούμενος)
1) to deny 2) to deny someone 2a) to deny one's self 2a1) to disregard his own interests or to prove false to himself 2a2) act entirely unlike himself 3) to deny, abnegate, abjure 4) not to accept, to reject, to refuse something offered
I think it stands for Hebrew "soteir" of which gematria is 666 (60-6-400-200), even as wordplay with Greek "soteir" = savior.
What is your confession?

You are hijacking a thread into something completely different, and i have no interest in that. Please don't bother directly stuff at me that is so off topic to be ridiculous.

By FAR, the meanest people I have ever encountered on the internet are from two unrelated group. Pro-polygamy advocates, and anti-missinonary Jews.
If missionaries would just leave us Jews alone, there would be no need for counter-missionaries. We could then remove a lot of mean-ness from our world.
Oh in other words, if Christians would disobey Jesus, that would be fine. Gee thanks. How about this? I have no problem with you keeping kosher as long as you eat pork. That makes about as much sense as what you just said. How rude! In other words, you have no problem with my religion as long as I practice it as you see fit.
To be a missionair you got to have a mission.
To have a mission you got to be called.
And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;
Have you been called?

If you believe the OP to be incorrect on a point, then correct her. You do not have to accuse her of being mentally impaired because she does not live up to your expectations in expressing her thoughts. You do not have to berate her because you disagree with her opinion.

I am just finishing up with my conversion process into the Reform Judaism. For me it dose not matter what branch that I chose, my Wife is a Conservative. I chose Reform because it is the closest to where I live and to me it dose not mater, a Jew is a Jew, it is more about how you practice and live your faith. My Rabbi is a fantastic teacher and has lead me step by step along my path.
You do not have to be Jewish to keep Kosher, it is a dietary path that was laid down in the Torah. And any prayer is better than no prayer. The Shema is an act of faith that should be said by everyone. I know that I am more than likely going to get some flack for over simplifying things.
Your best bet is to find a Rabbi that you are comfortable and is willing to take you on as a convert prospect. Talk to him and explain your reasons for wanting to convert. Remember that there is an old thing about being rejected three times, Don't let it stop you if this is what you want. Also, sometimes it is not easy to be a Jew, this MUST be something that you want.

You sound like you are searching. Like you I find Judaism a wonderfully appealing religion. I love the Torah including the legalism. I have close friends who are Jewish, but more than anything I love Jesus Christ and believe in him as the Annointed One, the Messiah. I would never be able to deny my belief in Jesus, which would be required of me to convert to the Hebrew faith.
At one time I felt that to regularly attend Shul (Synagogue services) would help me to understand Jesus' background. But recently I have contented myself with attending a Kesher course run as a house group. Kesher means connection in Hebrew, and the course has helped me to further appreciate the links between the Tanakh or OT and the Gospels. At the moment I am reading a book entitled 'Sitting at the feet of Rabbi Jesus' although Rabbi Yeshua might be considered more correct. With apologies to our Jewish friends on the forum I think this sort of approach might suit you better than jumping headlong into conversion. By converting you would meet some wonderful new people, but you may just find something missing in your life. Why not try the halfway path like me, explore Judaism but remain a Christian.
