It is only the fundamentalists who insist all that is written is true. I know Jews who also relate to it being a way of life rather than an assertion all is true. I remember as a child attending church 4 times on a sunday and bible study during the week. I then trusted that ministers knew more than me and had all the answers. Today, I certainly do not. I had a strict religious up bringing. I learned that church goers were the good people and the rest as rebellious against god. Now I see that is not true and most just do not understand this god belief or see any point to it. A lot of Jews are Atheists. They understand their Jewishness as an ethnicity or culture. It makes for some good humor. There is no God and we are his people. There is only one God, and we don't believe in him. Jews who understand full well that the Exodus never happened, still participate in Passover Seders. There are plenty of Jewish Atheists who fast on Yom Kippur. It's a cultural thing. You understand. There are plenty of people who have no use for Christianity. But they get all sentimental and misty eyed at Christmas and Easter. Quote Link to comment
