For this edition, I have yet another request for reader participation on something on a current book project that I’m working on I think will be a very challenging and enlightening exercise for all. There to me seems to be a lot of misunderstandings and supposed trains of thought–especially in this whole thing called evangelical Christianity and Messianic Judaism–and in particular, a lot of unspoken questions that some have that have never been asked, but in which I feel inside a lot of people would feel better if someone else of another particular religious persuasion could answer. The journalist in me is slowly becoming the victim of the old phrase “curiosity is killing the cat” about this stuff to just get those questions people are so desperate to ask each other out on the table–and then for others to take the initiative to answer in turn. I’m frankly tired of those questions not being asked and answered and unnecessary holy wars between each other (especially within the household of the Christian faith) because of what at the roots is a basic misunderstanding and lack of knowledge between partisans on each side of the fence.

So I’d like to throw a unique gauntlet to all to take what I feel might be a unique challenge to help ALL of us understand what life on the other side of each other’s theological fences is REALLY like. Then as a part of this upcoming book project, I hope to get those questions asked AND answered in a condensed format so that all can appropriately learn and be edified. For those willing to participate in this unique endeavor, you may leave your questions, comments, and answers here on my personal Facebook forums and/or send them to me by email at bspopwalking@gmail.com for my records. I think for once this would be an enlightening challenge and exercise for all.

The challenge is this: WHAT QUESTIONS AND/OR ANSWERS if you had the chance to give them are YOU absolutely chomping at the bit to ask the following:

(1.) Nonbelievers–what would YOU wish to ask a Christian and/or hear them say or talk about? What are you wanting to know from them?

(2.) NOW–turn the last question around…what about YOU that are Believers in Jesus/Yeshua–what would YOU wish to ask a nonbeliever and/or hear them say or talk about? What are you wanting to know from them?

(3.) Protestants–what would YOU wish to ask a Catholic and/or hear them say or talk about? What are you wanting to know from them?

(4.) NOW–turn the last question around…what about YOU that are Catholics–what would YOU wish to ask a Protestant/Evangelical Christian and/or hear them say or talk about? What are you wanting to know from them?

(5.) Jews–what would YOU wish to ask a Christian and/or hear them say or talk about? What are you wanting to know from them?

(6.) NOW–turn the last question around…what about YOU that are Christians/Believers in Jesus/Yeshua–what would YOU wish to ask a Jew and/or hear them say or talk about? What are you wanting to know from them?

(7.) Those who are Baptists, Church of Christ, etc.–what would YOU wish to ask a Charismatic/Pentecostal/Word of Faith person and/or hear them say or talk about? What are you wanting to know from them?

(8.) NOW–turn the last question around…what about YOU that are Charismatics/Pentecostal/Word of Faith–what would YOU wish to ask those Baptists/Church of Christ/etc. and/or hear them say or talk about? What are you wanting to know from them?

(9.) Messianics/Sabbatarians/etc.–what would YOU wish to ask Christians/Believers who do not see and/or observe Torah as you do and/or have no idea what you might be even talking about and/or hear them say or talk about? What are you wanting to know from them?

(10.) NOW–turn the last question around…what about YOU that are Believers in Jesus/Yeshua that are not “Torah observant”/Messianic/Sabbatarian/etc.–what would YOU wish to ask a Messianic/Sabbatarian/etc. Believer and/or hear them say or talk about? What are you wanting to know from them?

And so on and so forth…I await BOTH your questions AND answers to this unique challenge. I think we might also learn a ton about each other as we do this in the process as well. Until next time (as He allows), see ya at the CROSSroads–
