Summa Contra Judaism

I just wrote this in response to a ridiculous thing written by some guy online, attacking Christian missionary activity, as directed towards Jews.
Do you agree that when your people were sent into exile, they were practicing Judaism? They were punished for their rebellion, in spite of having the Judaism, because even Judaism is still rebellion.

The Law—this thing that is central to Judaism—was never the point, because Abraham never had it (and, indeed, was not even circumcised) when he had this righteousness which the Jews never had (and, indeed, were exiled for not having). Faith in the self-revealing God was the point. Abraham had it, and it was credited to him as righteousness. The Christians have it, and it is credited to them as righteousness. The Jews (in general) don’t have it, and their exile is one of the proofs thereof.

Judaism is also bad for Jews, as it is not the religion of Christ. I get that Jews in general are blinded about Christianity, but that just means that they are generally lost. Judaism isn’t an alternative-correct. Jews are not less-deserving of Christianity, just because they have Judaism. They, just like Muslims, are without truth, because they are without Christ.

Christ is the point of the Law, that there may be righteousness for all who believe.

“Again, after three thousand years of skin-of-our-teeth survival, to lose more Jews who are now leaving by choice is a shame, whether it be to Christianity or secular assimilation.”

“Again, after three thousand years of skin-of-our-teeth survival, to lose more Jews who are now leaving by choice is a shame, whether it be to Christianity or secular assimilation.”

Lose more Jews? Are you saying Christianity is not Jewish?
Does it occur to you, at all, that your ancient forefathers could have been wrong, not just when they killed the prophets (and then decorated their tombs), but also to have rebelled against Christianity? Do you really say that what your fathers did is necessarily right, because they did it way back then, and for so long?

—And I can’t believe you are comparing Christianity to secularism!
May you be anathema.
