I AM NOT A JEW

Sorry! My deepest apologies to Judaizers, Legalists and Hebrew Roots Devotees everywhere…

  • I am not a Jew.
  • I am a spiritual child of Abraham.
  • I am not under the Law.
  • I was never under the Law.
  • I do not live as a Jew.
  • I do not worship as a Jew.
  • I do not eat as a Jew.

Paul called down Peter, publicly, for trying to make gentiles live like Jews…

Galatians 2:14 …I told Cephas in front of everyone, “If you, who are a Jew, live like a Gentile and not like a Jew, how can you compel Gentiles to live like Jews?”

  • I appreciate the Jewish feasts.
  • I learn from the Jewish feasts.
  • There are Christian truths that cannot be understood apart from the Jewish festivals.
  • I appreciate Jews and Judaism.
  • I understand that Jesus was a Jew.
  • I am not a Jew.
  • I am a gentile.

Paul made a distinction between Jewish believers and Gentile believers. Paul, by his own testimony, lived like a Jew, when he was among Jews but as a gentile when he was with gentiles.

1 Corinthians 9: 20 To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win Jews; to those under the law, like one under the law—though I myself am not under the law—to win those under the law. 21 To those who are without that law, like one without the law—not being without God’s law but within Christ’s law—to win those without the law. 22 To the weak I became weak, in order to win the weak. I have become all things to all people, so that I may by every possible means save some.

I am not a Catholic. I do not follow Catholic traditions.

  • On the other hand, the church in Acts met on the first day of the week. I follow that tradition.
  • Protestant, Evangelical Churches have celebrated the Birth of Christ on Christmas Day for more than 500 years. I respect that.
  • I understand that Jesus was crucified on Passover.
  • I know why Jesus was crucified at Passover. I respect that.
  • My church has celebrated the Resurrection on Easter Sunday from the beginning. I respect that.

I know all about Ishtar and rabbits that lay eggs. I will not worship Ishtar on Easter Sunday. I will worship Jesus Christ and remember his death, burial and resurrection.

Ishtar be damned… Who stole that day and gave it to her anyway?

  • You may dedicate Easter Sunday to Ishtar if you like. That is your choice.
  • You may spend the day hiding under the couch, trembling in fear of a rabbit that lays eggs. That is your choice.
  • By refusing to worship Christ on Easter, Christians cede the day to Ishtar, confessing that she alone has a right to that day.
  • As for me and my house, we will spend the day worshiping Jesus Christ and remembering how he died to set us free from Ishtarian Demons… That is my choice.

Romans 14: 4 Who are you to criticize another’s household slave? Before his own Lord he stands or falls. And he will stand. For the Lord is able to make him stand.

  • I am not a Jew.
  • I am not a Catholic.
  • I am a gentile.
  • I am a slave of Jesus Christ.
