How do Messianic people honor the command to wear fringes?
What is British-Israelism? Why is it a severe problem to be avoided at all costs?
What is the difference between a Hebrew Roots and Messianic person?
Why do we see a great number of Jewish traditions practiced in today’s Messianic community. Would they not be in direct violation of Torah, and actually be seen to add to Torah?
In various independent sectors of the Messianic movement, or more likely the Hebrew Roots movement, Exodus 12:48-49 and its emphasis on “one law,” is likely to be some important credo. What is the actual context of “one law” in Exodus 12:48-49?
Why does the Jewish community call Yom Teruah “Rosh HaShanah”? I thought the Biblical New Year began in the Spring.
I am very concerned about the wide number of Messianic men and women I see in their twenties and thirties (and even forties) who are unmarried. What are they going to do if they are unable to find a spouse?
Complementarians frequently will conclude that “Mankind fell from grace because Adam did not lead, permitting his wife to lead and be deceived by the serpent.” Is this really an appropriate way to consider the Fall of humanity in the Garden?
There are different groups which one will encounter today, who use the term “Messianic” in some form or fashion. What do each of these groups really stand for, in terms of their mission and theology? How challenging is it, to perhaps find a diversity of people attending your local Messianic congregation—without even realizing it?
Throughout today’s Messianic Jewish movement, many men wear the kippah or yarmulke, in deference to Jewish tradition. By many, this is thought to be prohibited by Holy Scripture.
In various sectors of the independent Hebrew/Hebraic Roots movement, there are many women who wear some kind of head garment, in their adherence to statements appearing in 1 Corinthians 11. By many, this is thought to be required by Holy Scripture.
Issues involving dress and modesty can be very hard fought in various sectors of today’s broad Messianic movement. How do we identify and navigate through some of the extremes?
Obedience to God and to His Law is expected of His people. But how much of the purported obedience that we demonstrate, is truly a product of the sanctifying work of His Holy Spirit on our hearts and minds—versus a putrid and stale activity of our mortal flesh?
Too many are not aware that the majority view of theologians, since the Protestant Reformation, has been that the unrepentant wicked suffer eternally—but not by writhing in an endless lake or pool of magma, molten lead, and sulfur. Instead, the metaphorical view of the wicked suffering everlasting exile from God the Creator, has been what has been affirmed.
Yeshua the Messiah frequently said that He was the “Son of Man.” Would this not logically imply that the Messiah is entirely a human figure, and not at all God?
