It wasnt until I read a letter explaining the vision of the original leaders, that it all came together for me.Daniel Juster, part of the leadership of the Union of Messianic Congregations for many years, in a letter to Boaz Michael of First Fruits of Zion states, the founding fathers of Messianic Judaism intended Messianic Judaism only as an evangelical outreach to unsaved Jews.And by ones neglect of Torah, they say that its not holy.Anyone can say that the lights of a Christmas tree represent the Light of Jesus. Because the white-haired boy hiding under the covers is gone. —————————————————————————————————————————————— Natasha Tracy is an award-winning writer, speaker and consultant from the Pacific Northwest.Since 1983, Ive watched Messianic Judaism grow and considered myself and my congregation a part of it, even though we were never officially a member of either the MJA (Messianic Jewish Alliance), or the UMJC (Union of Messianic Jewish Congregations).Pretty much weekly I get messages from people who are desperate to help a loved one with a mental illness. She has been living with bipolar disorder for 18 years and has written more than 1000 articles on the subject.
Unfortunately, their attitude toward the Law was as perverse as the churches they came from.
Daniel Juster goes on to say that it was never the intention of those men to walk in Torah, for themselves or for the Gentiles.
In the same article, Boaz Michael goes on to relate how, at Messianic Jewish functions pork chops were served and none of the assembled leadership even raised an eyebrow. Then, after reading a position paper of the UMJC in April 2005 by Daniel Juster and Russ Resnik (the current Executive Director of the UMJC) where they explain the dominant theological position of Messianic Judaism on the Law (One Law Movements), and lay out the agenda and theology of the founding fathers of Messianic Judaism, I was certain that Messianic Judaism was not for me. Messianic Judaism was never intended by the founding fathers, or the current leadership, to take the people into Torah.
To my surprise, the Lord would not let me officially align myself with either group. At first, what I thought was poor theology on their part, concerning Torah for both Jew and Gentile, would change when the leaders saw the Light.
But over the years, its only gone from bad to worse, and Ive felt saddened by the infant that had so much potential, only to become a disobedient and rebellious child. I no longer feel that Messianic Judaism is capable of reversing its theology on Torah.
