Thanks, but no. I tend to use Proverbs 16:32: “He who is slow to anger is greater than the mighty, and greater than the warrior who captures as city.” But, I don’t think that will be enough for them. The individual is a gay academic who ironically studied to be a Catholic priest, but he didn’t go through to the end of his studies. He enjoys taring down others who don’t agree with his political and academic positions. He has a history degree, and so do I. Although, I am heterosexual, and in a long term relationship.
I suppose that history degree must have been well-received by him. It would be hard for a man of any honesty to continue in the church having knowledge of it's history.
@sadMeester It’s kind hard not to have doubts when you consider how The Council of Nicea arranged the Bible cannon. Then of course, my father is a Messianic Jew with a ministry in Israel, and he thinks it was a mistake for Christians to abandon so many Jewish traditions. Remember for example, Jesus said in Matthew 5:17 “I didn’t come to abolish the laws of the prophets. I came to fulfill them.”
I try to return to Jewish teachings when I can. I feel it's a mistake to NEVER observe passover. So many of those traditions are just somewhat practical.Sadly the churches in my area are a tad anti-Semitic, so I've forsaken gathering at all.
@sadMeester I think you’re on the right path because the majority of Christians don’t acknowledge that the last supper was actually a Passover dinner. So, if Jesus did Passover, hypothetically Christians should observe Passover. I can understand your need to want to use discretion regarding the risk of anti-semitism.
