Converts To Judaism Saved
To me, Cluny, a Christian means a person who is trusting in Jesus as his or her "way" and "truth" and "life" > the only way to the Father, as Jesus says He is, in John 14:6. He or she has given oneself to the LORD > "But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him." (1 Corinthians 6:17) And the person is submitting to how our Father rules us with His own peace > "And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body, and be thankful." (Colossians 3:15) So, I don't think a Christian is going to throw all this out > 1 John 2:19

If we sin deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment...

I think this is the first time I have seen someone use this verse from Hebrews correctly.
There was no Jewish sacrifice that could remove sins after a person knew the truth about the gift of forgiveness thru Jesus death.
Therefore, if a Christian converts to Judaism, rejecting Jesus, no Jewish sacrifice or mitzvah will remove their sins. This verse now applies to them:
Heb. 6:6 "and then have fallen away, it is impossible to renew them again to repentance, since they again crucify to themselves the Son of God and put Him to open shame"

Given Paul's comments (Rom 9:3) about 'saving his brethren', Paul implies that has brethren, the Jews, were not saved.
That is the only comment in the Bible about Jews in general, as opposed to specific people, though there may be other comments

, Jesus was sent by the father for the very purpose that those who believes in him shall be saved. Man cannot be saved by their own holiness but by an amazing grace which is why Jesus was sent.If you reject him, you aren't saved even if you are clean because no one really is.. We are not saved by our righteousness but by the grace of Lord Jesus Titus 3:5. If you do not believe in the one the father sent, how can you believe in the father??The one who believes in the son believes in the father. Jesus did exactly as instructed by the father so it is the father's command. If you don't believe in Jesus its not Jesus that you don't believe in, it is the father that you reject.. Which the Jews do

Yes, you can convert to Judaism, as long as you don't believe Jesus is G-d. But why convert to another religion when you have Jesus? For those who convert are not satisfied with walking with Jesus.
Remember what Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
Why would anyone give up Jesus to follow another religion? Search your heart for the answer. Also, Paul addressed the use of deception to achieve good aims. Does one what to live the old covenant or the new covenant?

"If a Christian converts to Judaism as it exists today (in one of its 4 affiliations/denominations), can that person be saved?" Cluny on 9/5/14
"If we sin deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire which will consume the adversaries. A man who had violated the law of Moses died without mercy at the testimony of two or three witnesses. How much worse punishment do you think will be deserved by the man who has spurned the Son of God, and profaned the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and outraged the Spirit of grace?" Heb 10:26-29

Jews are not all that anxious for converts anyway.
---learner2 on 9/6/14|
Only Jesus saves us. Jesus is the ONLY way, truth, life so if they don't accept Jesus or did & now deny Jesus, unless they repent they aren't saved. No denomination can save us or religion.
---Candice on 9/6/14|
can you clarify your question?
Are you speaking of a Christian in the sense of one having been born again? I take this as past tense
When you ask "can that person be saved?"....do you mean currently saved, or saved in the future?
---James_L on 9/6/14|
Cluny, I don't have an answer for you on that.
---learner2 on 9/6/14|
I cannot imagine that a truly born-again Christian (someone who understood that Jesus gave His life taking their punishment for sin) would ever convert to Judaism. Someone who 'thought that they were a Christian' might and that would show that they were mistaken and had not been truly saved (had not fully understood what being a Christian is) and that person then could be truly saved later and become the real Christian that they once thought they were anyway.

\\There are a lot more than four divisions of religious Judaism. \\
The main 4 I'm thinking of are Orthodox (which includes Hasidism), Conservative, Reform, and Reconstructionist.
But are you saying that one can be saved even if he denies that Jesus is God Incarnate, Savior, and Messiah, which is what Christian converts to judaism are supposed to do?
Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 9/6/14|
Cluny, I know very little about Judaism and did not know there were 4 affiliations. I only know that they believe in God but still await the messiah.
I hope that you are not asking this to give you an opportunity of 'shooting down in flames' those who know far less than you do.
You already know the answer to your question. Those who call upon the Lord will be Saved - regardless of what they were involved in prior to hearing of Jesus Christ and the great sacrifice He made for ALL.
Acts 2:21 and Romans 10:13.

If a Christian converts to Judaism as it exists today (in one of its 4 affiliations/denominations), can that person be saved?
---Cluny on 9/5/14
Cluny what are you up too?
Judaism, rejects our Lord, their messiah as a religion. Denying his name.
Rev_3:8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.
Joh_16:9 Of sin, because they believe not on me,
Joh_10:26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.
I'll ask a question. Can one be Judean/jew/Judahite/ taking their religion, or by calling themselves one, as many have through the centuries?
---Trav on 9/6/14|
i cannot give you a specific verse. nevertheless, if you talk to a real priest of judaism, he will tell you it is impossible to practice judaism and christianity. the former rejects Jesus as christ. any mish-mash is judaizing from which paul tries to keep us.
---aka on 9/6/14|
There are a lot more than four divisions of religious Judaism. God can save anyone, and is more merciful than most of us think he is.
