I just recently found your website and it seems very solid to me. My question has to do with the Hebrew Roots movement. Our son is deeply involved in this and insists that we should be, too. It has had a very divisive affect on our family. We have looked at the beliefs and practices of this movement and feel that it is placing people back under the law. In fact, our son tells us that we are NOT under a new covenant, but that the old covenant has been renewed and we should still practice all the feast days. He also says that celebrating Christmas and Easter are pagan and we should steer clear of them. He even says he is NOT a Christian, but a Hebrew. This deeply saddens us. Can you lend us some insight on this and how to respond to him? Thank you, B
So what exactly is the Hebrew Roots movement? We’re going to explore that topic in depth today. Although there are many different and diverse Hebrew Roots assemblies with variations in their teachings, they all adhere to a common emphasis on recovering the “original” Jewishness of Christianity. That doesn’t sound so bad, does it? But as you’re going to hear today, this movement and the varients of it are leading people into grave deception.
