The Judaizing Heresy



aka Eschatologuy

Judaizing has been a problem in the Church from the beginning. Even St. Peter fell prey to the Judaizers and their attempt to import into Christianity the false beliefs of Judaism. Today, Judaizing takes a number of forms. In this episode, we will cover circumcision, the use of “Yahweh” (and “Yeshua”), and several related matters.

As Christians, we must always ask ourselves both what the source of the thing is and what the purpose of the thing is. When it comes to Judaizing, the source is not God and the purpose is from Satan. The Jews do not have a special relationship with God or even any relationship with God, because they rejected His Son, and the Word of Scripture is clear:

No one who denies the Son has the Father. Whoever confesses the Son has the Father also.

Why would we, as Christians, who have the Son by Faith, ask the Jews, who reject the Son and therefore do not have the Father, anything about religion?

What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever? What agreement has the temple of God with idols?

  1. Would referring to Jesus as Yeshua and/or Yehoshua be a mild form of judaizing you think? I have friends that do this and I’ve just dismissed it as silly, they seem to think it makes them more “in the know” than the average Christian. I usually just kind of poke fun of them by saying something like “you mean Joshua?” but idk, maybe it’s more serious. I don’t think they’re in danger of buying a cepher and having “Christian seders” and I think they’ll likely outgrow it but it seems to be somewhat common among enthusiastic zoomzoom Christians.


    1. It is just a new form of using “Yahweh”, and, yes, it is Judaizing. The great irony, of course, is that God caused the name of Jesus to be recorded in Greek, which is Ιησους, not ‘Yeshua’. Names are translatable, and we should use the appropriate one to the language we are speaking or writing.
