“Five Responses to Christianity”


Center for Tanakh Based  Studies

By: William J Jackson

Many of us have studied ourselves out of Christianity.  As past members of the Christian community, we realize the responsibility they have to return us to the fold. In these encounters, I find the best technique to defusing these interventions is a willingness to listen, but with a stipulation that it will be a two-way conversation with the Tanakh (Old Testament) being the deciding factor.  Most Christians will shrink before this challenge, however, if any truly want an open conversation, here are five important bullet points:

  1. God, alone,  is our Savior.
    1 – Isaiah 43:11, 45:21, Hosea 3:4                                                                                                        Is43
  1. Jesus admits he is not God.
    2 – Mark 10:18, 16:19, John 14:1, 28, Luke 22:4                          24607
  2. No one can intercede on our behalf before God (not even Jesus).
    3 – Exodus 32:30-33, Deuteronomy 24:16, Jeremiah 31:29-30, 2 Chronicles 25:4 and 2 Kings 14:5-6                 Righteousness in Salvation4. The plan of salvation was already written in the Tanakh (Old Testament).
    4 – Malachi 3:16, 4:2, Psalm 50:23, 62:1-7, 70:5



  1. A sacrifice is not required for salvation, repentance is.
    5 – 1 Samuel 15: 22, Hosea 6:6, Psalm 51:17 (V19 in Tanakh), Proverbs 21:3                                                                                untitled

At the end of the day, it really is all about what God and His written word say’s.
