Robert E. Pritchard's recent letter is an outrageous and disgusting example of anti-Semitism.
I could hardly believe what I read. How will Jewish people ever come to believe in Jesus with the kind of filth produced by his article?
He writes, "Paul was a Christian and repudiated his former Judaism as he should, because it was and is the traditions of men, and condemned by the Lord." Mr. Pritchard, Jesus was a Jew! His disciples were Jews, too!
This is the same madness used over the centuries by many famous anti-Semites, including Hitler himself. Robert E. Pritchard promotes neo-Nazi ideology by such hurtful and ignorant trash. To think that a man could be so insensitive to write something like that to the general public saddens me deeply. However, it appears this may be his intent. What Jewish person would want to embrace Jesus after reading that?
Also, if anyone wants to call themselves a Jew, that's their right, not Robert E. Pritchard's. Paul called himself a Jew, and a Pharisee too. He never called himself a Christian. To build a wall between Jews and Christians like this is destructive to both religions. It promotes hateful ideology, not love.
Robert E. Pritchard owes an apology to the Jewish people who may have read the anti-Semitic garbage. Disgusting!
