Jews for Jesus Leader Denounces Vatican Statement on Jewish Evangelism (general)
My comment. Why on God's green earth would the Vatican take such a stupid position? We are awaiting the 144,000 Jews who have awakened to the fact that Jesus/Yeshua is/was their own Messiah/God on Earth per Isaiah - who will come again as the all mighty King - who the Jews confused with the first appearance of Jesus/Yeshua on earth. To not evangelize to the Jews who 'missed the boat' on this is ludicrous and wrong. Not doing this is a disservice to our Jewish brothers and sisters. Jerusalem & Israel are the 'key' to Scripture and God's plan. The Lord will not come again to Israel until Israel is saying 'Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord' regarding their Messiah, the Son of God, Yeshua/Jesus's Second coming - as the all powerful King who defeats Israel's enemies.
Matthew 23:39 (KJV):
For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
The end time scenario involves 144,000 Jews from all tribes of Israel who will be empowered by the Holy Spirit to convert Israel. I guess there might not be a Catholic - or else very few among them - because of this Vatican nonsense. Perhaps that is in God's plan also. ANY THOUGHTS? IDEAS?

Jews for Jesus Leader Denounces Vatican Statement on Jewish Evangelism
The Vatican's Commission for Religious Relations with Jews released a comprehensive document on Catholic-Jewish relations on December 10 which calls on the Catholic Church to "neither conduct nor support any specific institutional mission work directed towards Jews."
David Brickner, executive director of Jews for Jesus, finds their position "...egregious, especially coming from an institution which seeks to represent a significant number of Christians in the world."
Brickner went on to say, "How can the Vatican ignore the fact that the Great Commission of Jesus Christ mandates that his followers are to bring the gospel to all people? Are they merely pandering to some leaders in the Jewish community who applaud being off the radar for evangelization by Catholics? If so, they need to be reminded that they first received that gospel message from the lips of Jews who were for Jesus.
