Welcome to in Exile's
Christanity With A Jewish Twist

If They Say To You...

This section of in Exile is intended for serious study of the Christian claims. For instance, do modern Christian doctrines reflect the teachings of the contriversial first century teacher? Are all of us who do not embrace Christian dogma doomed to eternal torment by the God of Love? Are there other, more accurate ways to understand his teaching as we have them? There are a lot of pages in this section and it will take a lot of time to update and edit them all. Be advised that what is written here may or may not reflect my current beliefs. No offense is ever intended to my Christian friends. was in serious need of a makeover before Network Solutions stole it. If you have any questions, thoughts, or comments please let me know.

"If there arises among you a prophet, or a dreamer of a dream, and he gives you a sign or a wonder, and the sign or the wonder of which he spoke to you happens, [and he] says, "Let us go after other gods which you have not known, and let us worship them," you shall not heed the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of a dream; for the Lord, your God, is testing you, to know whether you really love the Lord, your God, with all your heart and with all your soul...
And that prophet, or that dreamer of a dream shall be put to death; because he spoke falsehood about the Lord, your God Who brought you out of the land of Egypt, and Who redeemed you from the house of bondage, to lead you astray from the way in which the Lord, your God, commanded you to go; so shall you clear away the evil from your midst" -- excerpted by Devarim (Deuteronomy) Chapter 13.

                        Why Doesn't Judaism Accept Jesus and Christian Dogma?
                              Here's the main reason:

שְׁמַע יִשְׂרָאֵל חשם אֱלֹהֵינוּ חשם אֶחָד
Sh'ma Yisra'el HaShem Eloheinu HaShem Eḥad
"Hear Y'israel, HaShem is God, HaShem is ONE" (Deuteronomy 6:4)

Judaism accepts only the One True G-d as presented in the Torah (Genesis-Deuteronomy). The conviction of "HaShem echad" (G-d as One) is the very heart of Avraham's revelation, the Torah and all Jewish Tradition. Any doctrine that modifies or rejects the absolute "echad" nature of the One True G-d is out of synch with the Bible and can not be accepted by Jews and/or Noahides. This includes Trinitarianism, Deism, monophysitism, Monothelitism, Ba'al worship, Polytheism, the belief in Avatars, etc. For Jews, such beliefs are considered avodah zarah, forbidden foreign worship.

The following studies look into various Christian doctrines in order to demonstrate to Jews why we do not and can not accept Jesus as divinity, as Mashiach (Messiah), nor any of the other beliefs held by the Church. My primary intention with this section is to protect Jews from missionary deceptions and "Scripture twisting."

Secondary to this goal is the desire to help those non-Jews who are seeking real biblical religion. While I am not encouraging conversion to Judaism, I do recommend the embrace of Derech Noahide, the Universal Covenant of Seven Laws. Judaism is not a missionary religion. One does not need to become a Jew in order to have a good relationship with the One True God. The Seven Universal Laws apply to all non-Jews (and are included within the 613 Mitzvot given to the Jews. All Gentiles are encouraged to embrace Derech Noahide.

Ask Rabbi Shlomo!
    One of the ways I decide which topics to address at and in Exile is what people are talking and asking about.
    If you have a question or a suggestion for a study topic let me know!
    My focus is Judaism, however I have an MA in World Religious Studies,
     and other degrees, as well as decades of study and practice. I am familiar with most belief systems.
