In Case You Haven’t Heard The Following Nasty Things Others Are Saying About Jews for Jesus (and our responses)
"They are crazy."
So, why try to refute the obvious?
"Their religion can’t be true. If they are really doing what God wants them to do, how come my daughter who is one of them isn’t married?"
Moishe has not come up with an answer which is satisfactory to both the daughter and mother involved here.
From a representative of another Jewish mission board: "Their tactics alienate the Jews and turn them off, whereas our mission goes into the synagogue and into the Jewish community and wins friends."
The speaker was obviously raised as a Gentile. If we tried that tactic, we’d be called sneaky and deceptive.
"They were excommunicated as Jews by a rabbinical court."
True, but that court was excommunicated by another rabbinical court.
"Jeff Fritz, the office manager at the Jews for Jesus headquarters, recently proposed they buy a train of 15 cars to be used as mobile offices to accommodate the mobile evangelistic teams."
It’s not true, but he has been thinking about it.
"Their office manager has requested the acquisition of a building for training… where he can lay out the tracks for his American Flyer H0 gauge model train."
Also false. What he does plan on doing is to move the accounting department out on the sidewalk and serve them coffee to disguise the operation as a cafe. Then, he can have our accounting space to set up his model trains.
"They are unkempt."
We can’t deny this, because the page fell out of the dictionary and we can’t tell what it means.
"They are irreverent and lazy."
Moishe said this.
