I’ve been researching Judaic beliefs looking for answers to the relationship between two thousand years of antisemitism and how Christianity is taught and practiced. It now seems conclusive that Christianity is a religion that tenuously links the two religions, and is intentionally offensive to Judaic principles and philosophy. In fact Judaism as practiced and taught from the Tanahk undermines, and delegitimizes the Christian religion in essential contradictions that is not a natural prelude to it.
The Jews do not believe in Original Sin, or in the ability of another person to pay for another persons sins. The central theme of Jesus is a belief that he suffered his crucifixion in order to pay for the sins of all mankind including original sin.
Judaic theology believes that sin is a personal consequence of failing to live observing the Torah. The only way to correct for this failing is to apologize to God and to change the behavior. In Judaism sin is not an abstraction, or a commodity to be shared by descendants as it is in Christianity, instead sin is not extendable beyond the individual to the group.
So in Judaism Jesus could not have been a sin sacrifice for all mankind. This idea is offensive to Jews.
In Judaism there is only one God and man cannot be God. In Christianity, with the Trinity, polytheism is introduced as well as a pagan like man-God.
In Judaism there is no Hell, no Afterlife, and no Heaven. In Judaism Satan is not a noun but a verb meaning “a hindrance”. In Christianity Satan is Gods rival who in opposition to absolute good is absolute evil, and is a personage.
In Judaism Heaven is on earth in life while in Christianity Heaven is a sterile concept as a place of purposelessness utterly devoid of anything interresting and is the place souls go for accepting Jesus as their savior.
Savior in Judaism is used in reference to political or physical harm while in Christianity it’s an intangible term referring to resume from sin as a general commodity.
In Judaism the Afterlife is the idea that you live on in the memory of your friends and family. In Christianity the Afterlife is immortality of something nonphysical that survives the body. But Christians never say where their immortal soul was before they were born, so it had a beginning. So the word Eternal is misapplied because it would have always been and will be forever to be eternal. Jews believe only God is eternal(no beginning and no ending).
The differences just go on, and on, and on to the point that you begin to see that it is impossible for Christianity to have grown out of Judaism. In fact Judaism discredits Christianity on so many fundamental levels that the only thing left for Christians to do is to demonize, persecute, and abuse the religion, or to abandon their own religion as phony.
Jews know how to read and they are the experts on reading Hebrew. They know what their texts teach and that Christianity is not in any way compatible with it. And yet Christians are demanding that they recant, instead of just leaving them in peace it’s always been an immoral war against them. The love of Jesus my ass!
Jesus isn’t God, but instead a commodity used by Christians like the concept of original sin, hereditary sin and abstract sin. It’s befitting that they are representing him as a commercial character because it parallels corporate, insane Christianity. If you don’t like the truth then go to Hell, a place that didn’t exist in the texts until the Christian gospels.
