i have a question between jews and christians?

i'm a catholic christian myself. christians believe that the second coming of jesus will come and the world will end.....this scares the crap outta me. anyways from what heard jews don't believe the world is going end. the chistians on the other hand believe that jesus is the messiah and the jews belive the opposite. in your opinion, would you turn to the chritian''s beliefs or the jewish beliefs in this matter?

As Ambivalent Bittern PJA said, "Judaism is more like a 3500 year argument" http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20081114152611AA8JvIY&r=w#FaNWHErFEzHDY8ZENZPi One would have a great deal of difficulty wading through 3,500 years of arguments and the many different sects of Judaism come to one conclusion of what you should do. I am surprised that you say you are a Catholic and not a Christian. As a Catholic you should know, Jn 14:6"I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him." The real issue is not heaven or hell. The real issue that scares you is your current relationship with God. If God spoke and acted in your life as the scripture verse said, then there would no reason for fear. Your personal relationship with God would be your answer. If you don't have God's assurance, then you certainly can't get assurance from a person. What person on earth can give you the assurance that only God can give? So whether it is the Judaism where God led, spoke and protected His people or Christianity where Joel's prophesy was fulfilled as indicated in Acts 2, follow the living God.

Being Jewish, I'd stick with the Jewish idea that our job isn't to worry about what's going to happen -- but to worry about how we can make a difference to better the world NOW! You are right that Judaism's belief is in a world to come on this plane that's to be wonderful. We don't have predictions of when or disaster setups beforehand, & we aren't supposed to be looking. Judaism doens't believe anything about Jesus -- he's simply not in our religion in any way at all. The religion is quite different from Christianity & the whole Christ & Jesus concepts don't fit it. We don't have salvation, hell, or reward & punishment in afterlife.

No, considering the fact that if you happen to worship Jesus (spelled with both a J or a Y), you switched G-ds. Your god is a human sacrifice. Idolatry is a deal breaker in Judaism. The equal aspect in Deuteronomy that claims do not worship statues or animals says do not worship people - lifeless or alive. Christianity is hence a separate faith. So the change is that Christians do recognize a non-Kosher messiah, now not that we do not. Point of correction: There isn't any "historical" testomony in Judiasm. There is Holy Scripture, the Torah, Prophets and Writings (Tanach). Christians have re-written and further to those Scriptures to fit their functions, known as it historical and further a brand new ex-cement with a quantity of slurs aimed closer to Jews. Their New Addition negates Torah. This is a well illustration of the way "extra" isn't anyplace close higher.

answer: I was Christian and left after 15 years. One reason was I couldn't reconcile a loving deity with world destruction and eternal hell. After over 20 years away from Christianity, I'm very sure I will never go back to that. I am studying Judaism and find the religion to be strict but a lot more logical than the abrupt change from Judaism to Christianity G-d supposedly made.

"But of that day or hour, no one knows, neither the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Be watchful! Be alert! You do not know when the time will come." (Mark 13:32-33) Jesus told us in no uncertain terms that we were not to know when the end of the world would come but that we were always to be ready. Each new Christian denomination seems to worry about the end of the world a bit too much. Then after a couple of centuries, they realize that there are always wars and rumors of wars, etc. I won't even mention the hundreds of false predictions of the end of the world over the centuries, all of which were based on individual interpretations of biblical prophecies. The first century Christian Church thought that Jesus was going to return at any moment. Only after a couple of centuries did the Church realize that it may be 2,000 or 4,000 or 8,000 years before Jesus returns. The Catholic Church wisely follows Jesus' advice and teaches that each of us should live as if we will meet our maker in the next ten minutes and that we need to work to make the world a better place for our 100 X great-grandchildren. Do not worry about the end of the world. Trust God to make sure everything happens to plan. Just be ready to meet God at any time. For more information, about what Catholics believe about the end of the world, see: http://www.americancatholic.org/Newsletters/CU/ac0993.asp With love in Christ.

Best way to get the answer between the two.... is to get a third opinion!..... According to Islam (a faith that confirms the teachings of Moses, and Jesus) believes that Jesus is The Messiah, and will come before the end of time, to lead people to the truth, those who were misled.. There are many other signs of the day of judgement prior to Jesus' coming... learn more on Islam's view on this if you like

Most Jews, like myself, embrace science and don't have an end-times-are-now theology. We say that only God knows when the world ends. So we should live our lives now to our very best and embrace all good things around us.

I am a christian. I believe we are the generation to see Christ rapture. It scares me also because I have accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior but i don't feel like i am good enough to be with him. I don't feel like I would ever be good enough. I know that Jesus loves everyone on earth. No matter what you have done. He died for everyone. All he wants is his children to love him back.
