There's certainly no problem with it from a Jewish POV.

Oh, well that's cool. I guess the only people that would
have a problem is my family. They are very close minded you see.

.....as are most christians.

Somebody who was once a Christian and is now not, you know - just like "ex-gays".

yeah well if they were a "true christian" TM in the first place they would've been filled with the holy spirit and not fallen away. or some shite like that i'm sure.

Is that meant to be a put down? I mean christianity for me personally just doesn't ring true.

nope. i am an "ex-christian" myself. i believe 80s is about to posture the idea that there are no "ex-christians," just people who were never true believers. could be wrong. :shrugs:

Yeah maybe he's right I don't know but do you think it's strange for someone who comes from a christian family to become jewish? At first it seems odd but honestly I don't think it is really.

I just found out that there are many converts in the old
Testament and other scriptures so that's encouraging.
Also, once a person is converted they must be excepted as equals which also reassuring to me.
