My view of the adversary is in line with Judaism. This is, of course, is a 180 from how I grew up in a Christian faith... which I no longer follow any more.
I share many videos of Rabbi's with my mom, and she would like to know what will come of the adversary, in the coming age of peace.
I hope my question makes sense, and thanks in advance.
Sadly, some of our fellow Jews suffer from drug addiction. This can create problems for a Jewish community. So if a Jew has a drug problem and owes money to their dealer, are they obligated by Jewish law to pay they money they owe to the drug dealer, even though the operation of such a business is illegal?
So we all ready know that when the Meshiach comes all Jews will go to Israel. When that happens will all Jews permanently stay in Israel and never leave? Or will Jews leave Israel temporarily for business and pleasure?
I'm on an online forum and some people were saying that they don't like religion (not Judaism, referring specifically to Christianity) since the woman is put down. I responded saying that from the view of Judaism, which Christianity is founded on, the woman is looked up to, protected - often greater than the man. It's not better/worse roles, just different.
Someone responded and asked for clarification, writing:
In Genesis, woman was the seductress and temptress that caused the downfall of man, and the whole human race. Eve was cursed by God for her disobedience and leading Adam astray: "Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee."
I said I'd ask and try find a response to it, and am wondering if you can respond.
(My original response was:
Historically, in Judaism (and I'm quoting judaism as supposedly christianity and all variations originate there, and also because this is all before christianity was developed, and I don't know enough about any religion, but I think that all christianity believes in this - correct me if I'm wrong) a women,has an equal if not greater role. Think of Adam and Eve. Adam saying he followed Eve. Think of Abraham being told by God to listen to his wife, that his wife knows better. Or of God lying to Abraham about his wife, for him not to know she didn't believe in him. Think of Jacob choosing where to go based on his mother's advice. Think of the women prophets.
Traditionally women have held a different role to that of men. Not better or worse. Different.
All religion is meant to be about respect and elevation of a women. Looking after. Care for. Protect.)
I was raised being told I was Jewish, but when I grew up and wanted to marry a Jewish man, I learned that I wasn’t because my father is Jewish and my mother isn’t. In 2012, I had a conservative conversion. In 2015, after being married for 2 years already, I had an orthodox conversion. But I still wasn’t fully observing Shabbat or keeping kosher at the time. I just wasn’t ready then and needed more time. But now I am fully observant. Do I need another conversion in order to be considered a full Jew according to Jewish law since I wasn’t observing right away? I want to know before I have children. I have since moved far away from and lost touch with the rabbis who converted me.
