I try not to employ the “No True Scotsman” fallacy very often – it’s not up to me to see into people’s hearts and determine who is a legitimate Christian, and who is not.
At the same time, a person born in a Jewish family who later believes in Jesus is, by definition, no longer Jewish – at least not in any spiritual sense. I accepted this some time ago. Judaism doesn’t really have a strict set of non-negotiable doctrines except one: there is one God, and he cannot be both man and divine (okay, so maybe that’s technically two).
Words mean things, don’t they? At what point do your beliefs – or lack thereof – remove you from one box, and place you in another?
