EXCITING THINGS ARE ON THE WAY

Frequently Asked Questions

What is religious coercion?

Religious coercion and deceptive proselytizing may include the attempt to convert people through devious and false means, pushing others to change their faith, and pressuring people to think differently. Although not all coercion is deceptive, when you are challenged by someone, it is important to delve deeper, ask questions and make an informed decision. 

Will my college student age child be approached by a missionary?

68% of teens and 85% of college students have been approached by someone who tried to share another religion with them.

Why can't Jesus be the Messiah?

There are several reasons why Judaism rejects the notion that Jesus was the messiah. However, the main objection to his ‘messiahship” is that he simply did not qualify. In order to be considered a “candidate” for moshiach a number of scriptural prophecies must be fulfilled by him, and such an individual must demonstrate a wide range of unparalleled attributes. Additionally, a radical transformation in the human condition must take place for that time to be deemed auspicious for advent of the messiah.

What do I say to my sister who is dating a non-Jew?

As with all family members these situations should be handled respectfully and delicately. Start by encouraging your relative to be open minded to exploring more about Judaism. Both its spiritual and practical applications. Remind them that they are part of a long and rich heritage and their decision impacts future generations.

Can non-Jews gain a place in heaven?

Absolutely. Judaism teaches that non-Jews should believe in God and accept and practice the 7 Noahide commandments. These include: 1) Not worshiping idolatry, 2) No blasphemy, 3) No murder, 4) No stealing, 5) No adultery, 6) Establishing courts of justice, 7) Not being cruel to animals. Actually, these are 7 categories and include other details. A non-Jews who accepts the Noahide covenant can get to heaven.

Because of the fierce proselytizing in Israel today by evangelical Christians, I share your page often. Keep up the great work. You are the number one force against the reckless “Jews for Jesus” movement.
