    [​IMG]THE VICAR OF CHRIST, POPE BENEDICT XVI GIVES SPEECH AT THE SYNAGOGUE OF ROME. In the speech held at Rome, January 17, 2010, he spoke of the ''failings of sons and daughters,'' towards International Jewry, and reminded Christians that in fact Christianity sprung from Jewry, calling them: ''the dearly beloved elder brother of the Church of the original Covenant never broken and never to be broken.''
    This brings up the question: Is Christianity nothing but a Jewish faith, a copy of it; perhaps a bad copy of it, and should Christians now discard their faith and opt for the Jewish Synagogue''?

    The JEW murdered our Lord Jesus. We Roman Catholics are the only true Christian people. The Jew like the Muslim does not qualify.

    Christianity is indeed the product of the Jewish faith. Had the Jews accepted the Messiah, Jesus, we would not be called Christians, but Jews.

    With Christ, change would certainly have come within the Jewish faith. There would indeed still be all that the Christian faith believes in regarding the laws and covenants. I believe there would have been new leadership in the Jewish religion, and the New Testiment would be part of the Jewish Bible.

    However, that did not happen. We Christians recognize our heritage from the Jewish faith. We did not reject the Torah. We recognized the role of the Jewish leaders, and have much the same within the Christian faith, however, with Jesus there are major changes. No temple worship is required since we can worship anywhere. No sacrifices because Jesus was the only one needed. The presence of God is a personal presence now, not one that is in the Temple only. That is because with the Holy Spirit, we are the Temple of God. That alone creates major change.

    Maybe we'd all be Muslims.

    It was a minor cult for a long time. It really got a hand up when politics was involved. But its origins are indeed Jewish. The three major monotheistic religions spring from the same source. I think monotheism was practised before Abraham but not to a very wide extent. Monotheism was probably given to us by the Hebrews. But the origins of Christianity don't mean that it should be disregarded now, after all it's had a very interesting history and lots of influences have been brought to bear on it. Hebrew, Roman, Greek and so on.
