I am thinking about converting to Judaism, and no this is not a spur of the moment decision, like I want to be a Jew. I was raised Southern Baptist,
am almost 30 and I just don't think that I have the faith of Christianity anymore. I have a deep belief in God, but I just am a little unsure about
Jesus being the son of God, not to mention that as I was thinking the Christian faith seems to go against everything the 10 commandments say.
For instance, you aren't supposed to put any other gods before God, but that is kinda what happened. It's all about Jesus now not God. Then you
aren't supposed to worship idols or have any pictures ect, but we have crosses, all these pictures of Angels, Jesus, etc. It just seems to me at
least this goes against what we are supposed to do when we worshiop God. I have been losing my faith for about 5 years or so, a little each day. I
want to believe, it just seems like we are missing the bigger picture. Don't get me wrong I think that Jesus existed, just not sure if he was THE
messiah or not. I was reading about the jewish faith, and read that the reason that the Jews did not think Jesus was the messiah, was because he
didn't fulfill the majority of the prophecies about him in the Torah, or what Isaiah and Ezekiel.
So I guess what I want to know has anyone else ever thought about this and coverted, or should I just go talk to a pastor?
I believe in God once again, just not sure if Jesus is the son of God, I also deeply believe in science, and sometimes science doesn't agree with
the Bible. (I don't think we are alone in the universe) there is some conflictions there as well. I want to believe, just not sure what. I know it's
just a matter of faith, but I'm not sure how much faith I have in all of this.
don't know if it matters but I have been baptized and "saved". That is I think the only thing holding me back. I want to go to Heaven
