Fellow believers please bear with my rant

The bible says plainly that if you are not Christ’s then you are not of Abraham’s seed (a Jew).

“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”

Therefore it also holds true that if you are not Christ’s, whether Jew or Greek, you are NOT Abraham’s seed (a Jew).

Now Abram became a Jew (Abraham, the father of the Jews) because of obedience not because of his race, nationality or bloodline. Abram didn’t make himself a Jew (Abraham), he was made a Jew by an act of God in response to his obedience. Now if Abram could be made a Jew (Abraham) by his obedience, he also would have NOT been a Jew by disobedience.

Now the same holds true for the children of Abraham: what’s good for the father is good for the children of the father. Thus, the sons of Abraham (Jews) can only be made Jews by an act of God in response to their obedience. That’s why it says, “Therefore know that ONLY those who are of faith are sons of Abraham. … And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”

So being a “Jew”, as like Abraham, never had anything to do with race, nationality or bloodline but it is an act of God bestowed upon an individual in response to his/her obedience. So all can become Jews, “Abraham’s seed” no matter what their bloodline (like Abram) by an act of God because of their obedience (which requires faith in Christ), because faith without obedience (loyalty to Christ) is useless.

So those people you see over there (Sephardic or Ashkenazi) may call themselves Jews but if they are not Christ’s they are not of Abraham’s seed therefore they are NOT Jews.

I am a real Jew.
