Re: Wearing Star of David

Hello, I asked a friend of mine who is a very faithful Orthodox Jew ~ and who also has an affinity for and understanding of Christianity ~ what he thought of this. He is fairly sure that many would be offended because they would view it as an inapproriate Christian appropriation of a Jewish symbol. ...

Re: Wearing Star of David

Hi "Wild Olive Branch": *not sure what to call you... The Star of David is a beautiful symbol and I don't see anything wrong with wearing it with a cross. I am a lifelong Catholic and it would be interesting to hear what Jews think on this topic (I'm sure that is the feedback you want to hear). Some...

Re: Boycott Israel!

And I suppose some people need to get a sense of respect for other people's opinions.

Re: Boycott Israel!

Hello All: I wanted to explain publicly why I didn't find this video all that amusing. It is CERTAINLY NOT because I support the Arab League boycott against Israel. I do not. Neither do I support actions against any particular individual, company, or countries which are based solely in hatred or bas...

Re: Rabbinical Catholicism?

Hadassah: "Can the universal message of the Gospel be seen as something which has little or no effect on the particular way in which Israel is obedient to the Lord?" Ariel: Absolutely not. On the contrary, the message of the Gospel has everything to do with how Israel is obedient to the Lord. No Go...

What Does the Church Guard?

Hello Ariel: That would be out of line with her mandate which is to be the guardian of the universal message of the Gospel and not of the particular law given to Israel. This is interesting. A line of thought worth pursuing in greater detail. Can the universal message of the Gospel be seen as someth...

Re: Rabbinical Catholicism?

Hello Ariel, You wrote: "I would personally tend towards a variation of orthodox Judaism though obviously this would have to be adapted in some way to Catholicism. And it should be clear that any obligation towards Torah would not come from the Church but would rather derive from the Jewish Catholic...

Hi Ariel, Yes, I understand. But Gerat Tzedak put forth the vision that the Church should encourage (observant) baptized Jews in the keeping the law in the best way possible, given that they would be outside the community already. I'd like to hear more about what she might envision for the Church in...

Hello, "However, instructing them that this is their birthright and responsibility is really the only right thing for you to do. I really don't see how you can get around it. The only question is how BEST for them to keep their covenant? The question of how baptized observant Jews could best keep co...

Hello, WAS HE WRONG?????? If the Covenant between G-d and Israel is PERFECT, as David writes, then nothing can improve upon it, or replace it. It is not perfect, at least in that it is not extended to all men. The Covenant in Christ brings brings a universal nature to what was previously only betwee...

Hello Gerat Tzedek: The second thing that is a frustration, both then and now, is that despite there being exceptions to the rule here in this forum, THE RULE STILL EXISTS that Jews baptised into the church are lost to Israel. They become indistingishable from any other gentile Catholic. They lose t...

Do We Have Something To Discuss

Hello Glory71, I am a faithful Catholic and certainly unequivocally pro-life. So what I am about to say is not a reaction to this particular post. But I have the impression from a number of your posts that your desire is to give dissertations rather than to offer fodder for discussion which might fu...

Hello Rob, Read this morning about rains in Queensland (and snakes seeking rain-free haven). I hope that you are keeping dry and snake-free! I am referring to the conglomeration of events and stances over the years. Anti-semitism, pogroms, ideas that excluded honest and open God-loving and God-feari...
