Moshe Posted December 13, 2018 Share Posted December 13, 2018 The religious section doesn't get a lot of traffic. But, I know, there are people here in the Houston/Woodland area. My son, who is more interested in Messianic Judaism, for the 20 percent I gave him. There is apparently a synagogue in the Woodlands called Bat-Tzion. My wife wants to go to her church this Shabbat, because of sickness and a deluge of water has kept us gone for awhile. I like the idea of Bat-Tzion, because of a feeling of kinship with people of similar Jewish background, however, they accept goyim too apparently. But, they have Hebrew classes to read the Torah in the original language, which appeals to me greatly. I am hoping it fills a hole inside of myself, like I am separated from my people. There are a few differences between myself and the Messianic, for instance they are still looking for Elijah. I understand that, as that is a tradition on the Satyr. But, as I read the Torah, Elijah was taken up to heaven in a firey chariot. But, tradition is to set an extra place for him. It is different, but not a salvation issue. I don't agree with everything in my wife's church either. They view themselves as pacifists. I am not. Obviously, neither is my son, who wants a career in the military, 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
