    I thought that was the main difference. The new testament is the christian writings, where the old testament is the same bible that even Jesus followed. It was before his time, no?

    Yes the Old Testament was indeed written before the birth of Christ.

    Honestly, as a Jew myself, I cannot say that I follow the Old Testament, though I consider myself a Jew. I am a reform Jew, which means that I am the farthest removed from Conservative and Orthodox Jewish practices. Because of this, I have been brought up on Judaism, but not on the Bible, per se. It is hard to explain. My parents have always said that they don't know if they can truly believe in any one single deity responsible for creating the earth and in all other forms that "he" (God) is described in the Torah.

    The reason that I still consider myself a Jew is the tradition and community which the religion provides. I think that religion was created many many years ago, back in the days when people thought heliocentrism was absolute nonsense, in order to explain natural occurences such as tornadoes, hurricanes, avalanches etc. Now that science has guided us into a world of innovation and technology, religion seems almost laughable. However, people still hold on to their religion because they want to believe that all praying and worship had not been for naught.

    Obviously my opinion is much different than others on this forum. However, many of my fellow reform Jews (neighbors, friends, relatives etc) seem to share similar views as my own. So, I am just sort of throwing the reform Jewish perspective out there, not trying to rile up any god-fearing souls who may be offended that I don't believe in God, or that Jesus was our Savior.

    nah I don't think it's an insult. It always bugs me when people neglect to use proper English. Like when people confuse the possessive apostrophe with the plural form, or the difference between their/there/they're and your/you're, or when they use are/our interchangeably, or when they say "to" instead of "too", or when they don't have subject-verb agreement, or when they use "me" and "I" incorrectly, or when they end a sentence with a preposition, or when they write run-on sentences that don't make sense and make the reader lose his focus (like this sentence). =] Yea, maybe I should become an English teacher some day. hahaha

    this thread proves that MOSTLY every war was fought over religion.

    some(most) people think that there better than others. sometimes those people are christians.so they throw christianity in peoples faces. goes the same for other religions too.

    The only invisible force that controls everything in the universe is gravity. I have total faith in that.

    if you want to contribute to the thread, why not offer some conversation, rather than just spouting the same thetoric over & over?

    That's why it's called FAITH.

    Jesus is the Lord God, and that is not rhetoric, it is the truth.
