Being that this is the internet I can see why you might question someone on if they were serious but I did ask the question. I haven't posted back on some of the readings yet cause I'm still trying to to think them over and some where just posted today so I have yet to read them. I also wanted to add that If I were to convert over to Christian it would be Orthodox cause Rome was pretty bad to us Jews with there back door deals
Hey JV, My avatar and sig come from Ismailism philosophy. As most people know them as Assassins( Hashasheen) during the crusades. I like crusade history but not the normal way as Christians would I guess. There were also Jews in this group of Assassins as well fighting with the Ismailism sect of Muslims and they helped bring Jerusalem back from out of the hands of the Christians.
Maybe you can help us get to know you a little better by humoring me with this question; I believe you when you tell us you're Jewish. What I find a little different is that you're using Islamic art as your avatar. You see, Muslims aren't allowed to draw or paint pictures of animals or humans. Something about only God can create life, so we shouldn't even try. I don't know, I think Muhammad may have misunderstood art. But anyway, I think your avatar, although in the shape of a tiger is actually an ayat (verse) from the Qur'an. I understand this question is off topic so you can PM me if you want to.
I see. Well, thanks for the explanation. As I thought it would, your explanation has created further questions; the one I'll focus on seems to challenge your question to us here and that is this: Your avatar and signature seem to be rather polemic and a veiled threat to Christians (seeing how Ismaili's helped overthrow Christianity in Jerusalem). That seems to be your one and only affection for them. How then can we possibly take you serious when asking for an explanation that Jesus is Lord? If I am wrong, I apologize to you. But certainly the thought must have crossed your mind that we might be a little distrusting? Plus, you've been given some evidence already and it seems you've yet to address it.
ps lots of fixes on this due to my key's acting up and sticking
Really? Just what "back door deals" might that be?
If anything, the Latin Church has more than once put her butt on the line in defense of the so-called "chosen".
Besides, it's not like Jews haven't ever made their own "back door deals" against Rome themselves not too mention the Eastern church as well. You even acknowledged in an earlier post about Jews commiserating with the Saracens against the Crusaders in their eventual expulsion out of Jerusalem. Jews have a history of siding with Islam against the Church and the West including Moorish Spain and the fall of Constantinople. So let's not be hypocritical here, Jews have made their share of covert deals with the enemy behind close doors as well.
