Following is a compilation of posts here at JGIG regarding how I became exposed to the Hebrew Roots Movement/Messianic Judaism/Netzarim streams of thought and came to refute certain beliefs to which they hold. To clarify, I have never been in the HRM/MJism. I do, however, know people in the movement as well as some who were in it and are now out.
My style is straightforward and sometimes blunt. Some interpret blunt as unloving. If you are one of those people, please know that I love you in spite of whether or not you ‘get’ bluntness =o).
To clarify: If you keep the Feasts of God and a seventh-day Sabbath because you find blessings there and a deeper understanding of God and Who He is, I think that’s fine. If you think that you need to do those things to be obedient to God, be blessed by Him, because if you don’t, there will be consequences, or tell other Christians that they should be Torah Observant/Pursuant and if they don’t they’re disobeying the commands of God, then I think you’re out of bounds. (Please see the ‘What JGIG Is’ and ‘What JGIG Is Not’ sections at the top of the sidebars on this site for more.)
