Your Corner reader chastises the mental torquedness of someone who believes “both that he is Jewish and the Jesus is the Messiah”.
Since the founders of the Christian faith, and the majority of its adherents through 180 AD or so, were people who considered themselves to be Jewish and believed that Jesus was the Messiah, are we to infer that such critics basically believe that Christianity is an insane religion?
If not, then at what chronological point do they draw the line? If it was reasonable for Paul to believe both in 40 AD, is it reasonable in 400 AD? 4000 AD?
Inquiring Christians want to know.
