“A Jew Can Only Be An ‘Apostate’ Concerning Their Judaism — Not To Christianity.” Not If You Consider That Moses Was A Christian!

From a purely BIBLE perspective, anyone who claims to be a Jew (from a faith standpoint, rather than just from a blood lineage perspective), and who does not believe the Lord Jesus Christ to be the Son of God and their Saviour and Redeemer, is an apostate Jew.

Dear Westboro Baptist Church,

 If you don’t mind my saying, the use of the word apostate strikes me as imprecise in the sign, “God hates Christ-rejecting apostate Jews.” So an “apostate Jew” is actually somebody whom you would say that God loves, because you’d say that God would want the Jew to renounce Judaism and to accept Christ and Christian teachings. Thus, I might expect a WBC sign to say, “God loves Jews who accept Christ and renounce rabbinic Judaism.”

 To be sure, some scholars believe that Jesus was himself was similar to a rabbi, in the way he preached to this fellow Jews and the way he interpreted scripture (that is, the Old Testament laws and passages that Jesus refers to). But even if Jesus himself was a rabbi, after Jesus “rabbinic Judaism” develops without accepting Christ or Christianity at all.

 My two cents.

 –Hillel

 

Dear Hillel,

This view of the matter is unlearned, pedantic, didactic and doctrinally unsound. All of the prophets prophesied of the Messiah, and only Christ as the Messiah – salvation has always been, from Gen. 1:1 to Rev. 22:11, only through Christ. Every sacrifice ever made under the Levitical code was a type of Christ – on this point, which is THE point – please read and reread all of Hebrews 9. Christ was from the beginning (link these two verses together): “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” Gen. 1:1 AND “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1.

And please consider Hebrews 11:13: “These all (Abel, Enoch, Noah,  Abraham, Sara, Jacob, Moses, Rahab, Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jepthae, Samuel, David, etc.,) died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.” The promises were all of Christ.

In the most real terms, Abraham was a Christian(!), he spoke to Christ face to face and believed on Him (see Gen. 18 for help with this). Moses was a Christian(!): “By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter; choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.” Heb. 11:24-26. Joshua was a Christian(!) who, when in Christ’s presence, knew who He was and immediately fell and worshipped Him (see Joshua 5:13-15 for help with this very sobering event). Shadrach, Meschach and Abednego were Christians(!) who were in the presence of and protected by Christ in the hottest (pun intended) of Gentile persecutions (see all of Daniel 3 for help with this).

Any true, faithful Jew in the Bible was a true and faithful Christian – though Christ hadn’t yet revealed Himself publicly, in either His first or second advent, He was not only prophesied of and believed on, but showed Himself many times to his beloved sheep in what the old preachers called ‘Christophanies.’ So, in point of fact, and from a purely BIBLE perspective, anyone who claims to be a Jew from a faith standpoint (a spiritual Jew, rather than just from a blood lineage or national perspective), and who does not believe the Lord Jesus Christ to be the Son of God and their Saviour and Redeemer, is an apostate Jew.

All the cute, clever academic wrangling about something so vitally important to every man’s never-dying soul simply takes the breath away in its Pharisean blindness and stiff-necked rebellion against their Saviour. This, from the day that the first man born on this earth murdered the second (simply because he followed and exhorted his murderous brother to the proper pattern and type of sacrifice – that only blood [Christ] atones for sin), all the way down to the intellectual, Christ-rejecting , litigious, hard-hearted Jews we live amongst today.

And that’s not anti-Semitic. It’s big time Semitic, from a spiritual perspective (which is really the only perspective that ultimately matters). So, we preach Christ to all men, including the ‘Jews.’

 Hope this helps. Thanks!

— Westboro Baptist Church
