    My psychiatrist was Jewish...best psychiatrist I ever had. I recently did Bible studies with a Jew , it was truly an honor. The Jews I've met are just enjoyable company.

    Even the Jews who don't like me at RF, I have much respect for. I enjoy what they post. Even when it gets rude I find it amusing.

    Nope, I've never met a Jew I didn't like, not even on RF, ( though I have a hunch some of them don't like me)... and that is fine! :D

    I was recently invited to a synagogue. What should I wear?

    Why do you call your religious beliefs 'oneness', and not esoteric judaism, or something like that?

    There used to be entire monasteries where people devoted their lives to praying for the conversion of Jews.

    I prefer that Jews don't convert so they can better keep their Hebrew identity and traditions.

    If Israel was a Christian state that just isn't as interesting as a Jewish state...a Christian temple, meh. Keep things Jewish!

    I pray for Jews and Israel, I just don't pray for their conversion. It's just better that Jews remain separate from Christianity and keep their Hebrew identity, culture, and traditions.

    They are waiting for a Messaiah that will fulfill prophecy. God will give it to his people. I pray that God raise up for them a savior who will actually fulfill all the prophecies, not argue with Jewish authorities and die on a cross.

    Because incest. Depending on how you understand the story of Ham. He either sodomized Noah which i think is the common consensus. Or he raped Noah's wife (his own mother) impregnating her, which is what I got out of the story. Thus Noah cursed Ham.

    Will the Messaiah be a descendant of King David and born of a Virgin?

    The descendants of Ham were cursed and enslaved.

    Because Oneness is also in all religions globally in someway...

    It is the word I shouted in my NDE from Hell, and was then brought to Heaven, which is the ultimate state of Oneness. :innocent:
    The Messiah doesn't necessarily have to be born of a Virgin; Isaiah 7 doesn't specify the word Messiah.

    The Messiah will be equal to David, not just a descendant; such as a reincarnated version of him back (Ezekiel 34:23-24, Jeremiah 23:5, Ezekiel 37:24-25, Jeremiah 30:8-9, Hosea 3:5, Isaiah 55:3, Isaiah 22:22, Isaiah 9:6-7). :innocent:

    But you do realize that Xians and Jews alike could 'argue' your experience, right?

    Are you telling the whole story?

    Near Death Experiences often visit a dark place to begin, many would call this place Hell... Though descriptions are often muddled based on each perception.
    Wouldn't use my experience to only substantiate Oneness, can explain it on a multitude of levels in many religious cultures.
    Of course not, no one reveals everything they're aware of in one go, our language is limited; if we could transmit brainwave patterns that would be far quicker.
    It is based on contexts of the said event taking place in clear specific chapters; it only has numerous difficulties, as people want to make the text speak for them, rather than let text speak for its self. :innocent:

    Regarding the Temple, what is Israel waiting for?

    Also, are there sects of Judaism where it is permissable to be a medium or have a seance to contact the dead?

    We are taught that the Temple will be built by G-D. So we're actually waiting.

    No. The Torah expressly forbids this. Deut. 18:9-12

    Dress pants, button down shirt... tie is optional. Most synagogue's provide a yarmulka for those who don't have one... I recommend putting one on. But don't put on a prayer shawl.
