Confessions of a screwed up middle aged man: misconceptions


A few months back I was able to have a discussion with a Jewish agnostic. They called themselves an atheist, but after some of our exchange I realized the person was really agnostic.
One of the things that this person kept bring up was my desire to have them quit being a Jew and to leave their heritage. This I must say was the furthest thing from my mind.
Would I have liked this person to have accepted Jesus as their Savior? Yes, but that would not require this person to stop being Jewish.
In fact I would have encouraged them to be proud of being a descendant of Jacob.
You see being Jewish and being Christian, or as it is called a Messianic Jew, is the greatest thing to strive for and is only able to be obtained by coming from one of the twelve sons of Jacob.
For it is said within the Bible that it is for those that God has the greatest of plans compared to the rest of those that live upon this planet.
Am I jealous of this? By all means no.
To me the greatest thing I could ever do for God at this time would be to help someone become a Messianic Jew.
