i didn't love this link...i found it kind of sarcastic & lacking in grace. So not how i know *you* to be!
Yes it was sarcastic, but I still enjoyed it, as it still speaks truthfully about how some people have responded to the message of Torah.
If it's lacking in love - i don't know that it will have any impact other than a hurtful one though - (comparing people who eat pork, worship on Sundays, celebrate Christmas to people with chronic bad breath). These are the types of things that divide us as believers... & i wonder if the negative impact is greater than it's potential to influence in a positive light.
I'm thinking perhaps it is meant to be humorous to those who are trying to follow Torah, and help them to be more understanding of those who do not...because it IS like bad breath! you don't know you have it unless someone tells you...most Christians won't know what they're missing unless someone shows them in Scripture. They know they aren't satisfied with their walk with Christ, yet not know why, or how to fix it... I'm thinking perhaps I could have posted that the link was for those who DO follow Torah and are in need of some understanding towards those that don't?? But I also know that love is shown in many ways, not just lovey dovey feel good words...cause I suck at those and yet I love fiercely...having said that, it is not an excuse...I know I need to work on my lovey dovey feel good side, but that is not the only way to express love...lol
Very good post.
