I suppose they’re gatherers too (below) … Jews for Jesus provided some literature this morning at Dupont Metro North.
We at GTJ have a fairly flexible notion of what makes a person a Jew. But Jews for Jesus fall outside our lines.
A commenter mentioned yesterday on a GTJ post that a person remains a Jew if he has a Jewish mother, even if he is a professed Christian, Muslim, etc.
I have to disagree. If you renounce Judaism, or if you join another religion, you’re no longer Jewish. We believe in free will as a people. Surely this includes the free will to exit?
Or… if you’re a Jew who believes Jesus was divine, that’s very nice and fine, but you’re no longer a Jew — you’re probably a Christian (but I’ll let Christians address that issue).
