    Only the obvious explanation comes to mind ... I don't see lots of Catholics or Greek Orthodox or Coptic Christians in the Pentacostal Church I attend, but I suspect it is simply because they all either have a church they attend or are more comfortable with a different cultural/liturgical setting.

    I have encountered individuals who emphasize their Jewish Heritage for fundraising who have visited our church, but I know a goat among the sheep when I see one and there is nothing 'saved'...

    I've only seen Messianic Jews fundraising in non-MJ churches, but I've never seen a willingness to break bread, or have anything else to do with the whole of Christendom. If they refuse to join the Church, are they part of her?

    My comment is based on my experience, which is admittedly limited, but it's limited because MJs refuse to have much to do with Christians.

    Does anyone have an explanation for this?...

    I do appreciate all the guidance and input for my question in regards to praying for money. I never actually thought about "daily bread" and what it could mean. This could be seen as the means to provide (money) the daily bread (material objects) for myself and my family. I especially liked the response by RevT, it has been liked. I have seriously been conflicted about what I should ask God for. In the grand scheme of life and everyone on this planet and all the issues we face I feel guilty...

    I have always had a wonderment about how Christianity and the law interact and relate to one another. I cannot really speak to anything specific, but I am sure there are areas in the law that would seem to go against the Bible or the teachings of Jesus, but nothing is really coming to mind (maybe he would want a different corporate tax structure). Or more often there is probably just not laws where perhaps there should be. It is really interesting to think about, though, so thank you for sha...

    Well this is certainly a prayer that I can get behind. My church is particularly active in matters like this so I am always interested to hear about the others that are out there. It is a great cause, and there are a lot of things that these missions accomplish in terms of spreading faith and just doing good work around the world, that I think it is safe to say that we could use a little more of this. I pray for all people of the world, and I will make it point to include this particular missionary...

    If something brings you to your knees... that's the best position for you to be in as in that place you can only look up, and God is right there waiting for you to start talking with Him. Sin does lower us, which is a good thing. When we are broken, hurt, sinning and ashamed... that's when God is there to hold us up and help us stand. If we stand for Him, He will support us and before we know it, His reality is closer to our own, and it becomes a bit easier to avoid that which we formerly couldn't...

    I question whether they profess the Trinity. The few Messianic Jews I have interacted with rejected the 3rd person of the Trinity - the Holy Spirit. This may of been an indication of them and not Messianic Jews overall, but it does cause me to question them, and because of this, I usually ask for statement of belief or whether they profess the Nicene Creed.

    God bless,
