“I was born a Jew and I will die a Jew.”

We agree with you. You were born a Jew, and no matter what or who you believe in, you’ll always be a Jew. The question is not whether or not you are a Jew, the question is whether or not your name is written in God’s Book of Life. A Jew can be a practicing Buddhist and still be considered Jewish. He can be a practicing Hindu and still be considered Jewish. So why is it that when that very same person starts following an Israeli-born Jewish rabbi who taught his followers to love the God of the Shema, he is suddenly considered non-Jewish by many other Jews? That does not compute. In Sid Roth’s book, There Must Be Something More, Dr. Michael Brown says this: ”You do not give up your Jewish identity to receive Jesus. On the contrary, you gain a personal relationship with the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob through your walk with the Jewish Messiah.”
