Fixed it for you.

Anyway, on the topic of the OP I think like all religions is has its share crazy and/or silly crap about it. That said, one of the things I like about it, or at least it as it's practiced by most of the jews I know, is that it seems to focus more on dealing with life in the here and now as opposed to having a huge amount of focus on the afterlife. As a result I think it's practitioners generally seem to take a problem-solving approach to things instead of some absolutist pie-in-sky stuff that has no application in the real world.

I was raised in a Southern Baptist Church, but not your typical uptight one. I was always told Jews were gods chosen people, as in its the people God first spoke through and in the end will speak through. As a Gentile I have to earn my way into his favor....

We use to have a Rabbi as a guest speaker at our church maybe every 3 months. We always had trips to Jerusalem every summer. As I i got older I always thought of Judaism as a purer more untouched religion not effected so much by man. As in the Bible being a book that has been changed and rewritten tons of times over time by lots of different Cultures. The Torah as being more sacred.

In fact for years I have thought about seeing if I could convert to Judaism.... Considering I don't see Jesus as the son of God.... Maybe a great man, but its hard for me to conceive this guy claiming to be the son of god 2000 years ago, and everyone following him. We have seen that how many times now in the news? Dont they always drink the kool-aid? It would just suck not to eat pork or ever get a tattoo

As in the Holocaust.... Jews are some of the strongest people in the world. God has tested their faith more then any other people because they are his chosen people. He is only preparing them for something greater. Least that how it was always explained to me.

I really doubt other people have this view, especially others raised Southern Baptists. Just happened to be my church and my mom.

On par with any other religion in the nonsense department.

the religion or the people? i don't really have any express feelings about the religion, and as for the people, i'd say that Jews are just as hypocritical in their faith as Christians.

did you expect a crew of anti-Semites to hang around here?
