More Blacks Converting To Judaism
Posted by Job on June 18, 2008
Considering what black people have gone through in order to become and remain Christians in America and all over the world both in these modern times and throughout history, I find the rate of conversion of blacks from Christianity to Judaism, Islam, Mormonism, Scientology, Jehovah’s Witnesses, liberation theology, and Roman Catholicism alarming. This is still more evidence that the church has to reject modern theologies and get back to the full, Biblical gospel so that A) everyone will know that departing from the faith is wrong and B) everyone will know the consequences of doing so. That blacks are going to Judaism in particular is clear evidence that so many black churches have abandoned preaching from the book of Hebrews – as well as the book of Romans – in favor of preaching false prosperity/Word of Faith doctrines as well as getting themselves mixed up into secular politics and social action. I also wonder if dispensationalism – and the reverence for Judaism, the Israeli political state, and dual covenant theology that inevitably go along with the territory – is playing a role in this.
